Tried the Stephanie Inn's Bee Pollen Sunrise blend and I'm so glad I did! So refreshing - highly recommend this one!
Was doing my annual Christmas shopping at the Cranberry Museum and decided to take a chance on gifting your Coastal Wonderland Tea As it worked out she opened it at our home here so I was able to taste it after I made us both a cup and it has now become one of my favorites!! We both loved it!! I used a glass infuser for maybe 3-4 minutes, pure tea perfection!! Thanks so much for creating this wonderful blend 💖💖💖
I received this as a birthday present many years ago, and I was skeptical, to say the least. As a general rule, I find the base tea, lapsang souchong, to be undrinkable. It tastes like drinking water out of an ashtray. All that is to say that this blend really surprised me, because my tastebuds say it's terrific. I don't quite know how they pulled it off, but I think it's a combination of the juniper (which you can definitely taste) and the fact that the lapsang souchong doesn't overpower everything else. They seem to have understood that the tea itself is so intense that it needs to be used with subtlety; that more is not necessarily better.
That said, I suspect people who try this will either love it or hate it, because the flavor is still intense. But I'll give at least one vote out there from a person who still thinks lapsang souchong is vile: they just managed to use it effectively and deliciously.
Thank you so much for the review. Yes, Lapsang Souchong is an acquired taste. We see you left this review on our Pacific Northwest Inspired Wooden Tea Cup. Did you mean to leave it on one of our teas that contained lapsang souchong? We can change it for you if you can remember the tea blend?
So the spearmint is actually very overpowering when you first open the bag but it is very subtle while drinking. In fact the whole tea is on the bland side but isn't bad. I will try it with maybe the Juniper Apple or Chai Spice infused sugar. Maybe add some additional fruit pieces. I'm not giving up on it because it does have good flavors but again nothing in particular stands out. It's missing something
Not sure what the weirdness bite is, I can't quite make it out. I have had all these ingredients in previous teas and none had this strange weird bite. I almost has a campfire taste of you know what I mean. This is definitely a fall tea.
This is supposed to be geared towards kids but I don't know of a kid that would drink this, FYI I have a daycare.
I'm not giving up on it though, I will try adding some infused sugar and berry/golden rain mixture to it to see if that helps.
At this moment I can't say I would recommend it without trying it with the sugar and berries
So I made a single cup to start and it was pretty good. I went on to make a 5c kettle. I added a heaping spoon infused Juniper Apple sugar and some berries/golden raisin/cherries blend it was really good with this combo. The longer it sat the better it became.
The one downfall was that the tumeric stained my kettle lid air tight rim. I will definitely make this again with the added items I mentioned above
This tea to me reminded me of Raisin Bran cereal. I can't place the ingredient that is throwing this off for me. I have never had chicory root before so I'm wondering if it's that. This is a definite do not buy against n for me.
My 11 year old loves this tea. Had it while staying in Long Beach, WA and loved getting it as a surprise holiday gift! Thanks for using wholesome WA local ingredients.
Beach House Foghorn Grey and Beekeeper Grey are my two new favorite OF ALL TIME teas. Anywhere. I’m not sure if it’s the base tea, the bee pollen or the balance of bergamot and lavender with everything but it’s as powerful as a drug for me. So satisfying. My absolute favorite morning teas and nothing else compares any more!
Beach House Tea’s Fog Horn Grey combines the classic earl grey with a splash of cornflower petals and orange that brightens up the tea like sun shining through the fog on a Pacific Northwest winter’s day.
I got a sample through Amoda Tea and fell absolutely IN LOVE. It's tart (which I love) but has a fantastic fall/winter Christmasy spice at the same time. Truly amazing. I will be purchasing either the 8oz or pound bag
I just love that I can have a caffeine alternative day or night. I’m so glad to have found it. I highly recommend it!
