I love teas that are pretty to look at, which is really any tea to me. All teas offer something a little different visually, whether in how the leaves are rolled or cut, or what’s in the mix. Today’s tea I’m talking about is Fox Tea’s Arabian Nights, a beautiful blend with huge roses!
Rose yields such a nice, soft flavor in teas, and is one of my favorite flowers to brew (closely tied with lavender and chamomile). This blend is an interesting combination of sweet, slightly earthy and floral.
Ingredients: Black tea, calendula, cornflower, green tea, mango, pineapple and rose.
This tea tastes like a dessert, especially in the first steep. It’s got a strong vanilla flavor, which they said is supposed to taste like pound cake. I got that vibe from each sip, decadent flavor without the calories. I also really like when blends have both black tea and green tea included. Combining the two adds a really nice flavor.
There is also a floral taste to this tea from the roses, meshing with the fruity flavors of pineapple and mango, mixed with the black tea for a delicious blend. Though black tea was the first ingredient, however, I noticed the green tea flavor more. On the second steep, the vanilla is less prominent, but the fruitiness really stands out for good, full flavor.
If you like dessert teas, this one is flavorful but not overpowering. The taste is almost like a creamsicle. It’s always good to find a tea that tastes like a dessert, but-guilt free!
