Vanilla Apricot – Black Tea
Field to Cup creates a lot of delicious black teas, so I was excited to see two of them in this month’s box! This black tea blend contains some apricot, vanilla bean, papaya, peach, and blackberry leaves. The addition of fruit creates the perfect amount of sweetness. I love to use these types of blends to replace my morning coffee, because I never have to add anything to them ,and they’re high up on the caffeine scale!
Island Breeze – Fruit Tea
I love beautiful blends like these! This has huge chunks of cherries, cranberries, apples, kiwis, and coconut flakes. The super fruity scent that came out of the pouch reminded me a bit of a fruit cocktail (without being sickly sweet). When you have whole chunks of ingredients like this, the brew time is a bit longer. The suggestion for this blend was 5 minutes, but I went for about 7. This was a perfect dessert tea! The sweetness feels decadent, and it has no caffeine! I ended up fishing out the cherry chunks to eat while I was drinking this, and the whole experience was just delicious! This is the kind of blend I never think to buy for myself, and I’m so happy it was included in this box!
Summertime Grey – Black Tea
The second black tea of the box was a slight twist on a classic Earl Grey blend. This Summertime Grey includes white tea alongside the standard black tea and bergamot. I’ve love Field to Cup’s Earl Grey blends, and this was no exception. It tasted very similar to a regular Earl Grey, but the white tea made it just a little lighter. This makes the black tea and citrus flavor mild enough for a nice summer tea break. This was great as a hot brew, but would be amazing iced, as well.
Apple on a Stick – White Tea
Opening this pouch was like walking into a carnival. It smelled so sweet and sugary! The green apple scent is strong, but the coconut and lemongrass cut through it really well. This has the shortest brew time at two minutes and resulted in a really smooth blend. White tea is very mild and subtle, so the slight sharpness of the green apple works well with it.
Verdict: Tea Explorer is a really fun way to test out Field to Cup tea. I’ve been a fan of their Discovery Plus subscription for a while, and this gives you a perfect little sample of those teas. You can always count on Field to Cup to give you a nice variety, and even with only four teas, this box delivered. I think my favorite sample was Island Breeze, because it was just so summery and refreshing!
