Field to Cup Tea Discovery Plus February 2018 Review

The information insert includes a description of each tea, steeping instructions, and information on membership discounts.

Field to Cup includes ten tea bags which is great if you don’t have any tea infusers on hand.

Rose Garden – Black Tea

Florals can be tricky when it comes to flavor. For me, it can be an overwhelming experience if all you can taste or smell is the floral note. The ingredients for this blend are simple – black tea and rose petals. By now I know that I love every black tea Field to Cup sends my way so I’m always excited to see what flavors they add. This definitely smells strongly of rose so if rose scents aren’t for you, this might be a bit overwhelming! I found that the rose flavor was substantial without taking over the smoothness that I love in their black teas. This does have a three out of three on the caffeine scale. That usually means breakfast tea for me but this has a more indulgent flavor for me so I made a pitcher of Rose Garden iced tea to enjoy on warmer afternoons.

Dark Lust – Black Tea

I love the mysterious name of this tea! This black tea has no add-in flavors and is from the Anhui province in China. The instructions said to pour boiling water in a cup, wait 20 seconds, then add the tea. I’ve found that instructions are there for a reason and my tea always tastes better when I follow them! I added my tea to the boiling water and the aroma was a bit earthy. The description of this tea on the information card is really accurate. This tea was very smooth initially but it did have a slight kick in the middle, with a smooth finish. This was a nice, straightforward black tea. This is the kind of tea I like to drink with a meal because it is really good but also mild enough to not overpower any other flavors.

Slow Roasted – Herbal Tea

Roasted teas were a totally new thing to me when I started getting Field to Cup and they’re always so interesting! I’ve grown to really love a roasted tea blend and this one just includes barley! I definitely have never thought about drinking barley tea but now I’m into it! Like most teas with whole ingredients, this has a longer steep time at eight minutes. This did have a sweetness to it but what I love about roasted teas is that you really can taste a toasty, almost smokey flavor. This gives it some extra substance and earthiness which makes for a nice evening tea.

Ginger Honey – Fruit Tea

This fruit tea has a simple list of ingredients and no caffeine. The main flavor I got out of this was the sharp ginger. The apple flavor softened the ginger a bit and the honey added a nice sweet finish. We’re currently transitioning to spring in Pittsburgh which means a lot of rainy, chilly days so this tea came at the perfect time! I love adding ginger to everything when I have allergy issues and honey is always soothing. This hot tea has been the perfect cozy addition to my cold season self-care routine.

Apple Walnut Strudel – Fruit Tea

WOW! I assumed I would enjoy this because I love apple walnut strudel but this was awesome! This fruit tea has one of the longer steep times at eight minutes. Blends that have whole chunks of fruit or nuts usually require a bit longer to steep but it’s definitely worth the wait. I love how the dry blend looks with the huge pieces of walnut and marshmallow. The apple pieces and marshmallow create a perfect blend of sweet and crisp, with the walnuts adding a nice depth. I added a cinnamon stick to mine and it was a great treat on a chilly night.

Very Berry – Green Blend

As soon as I smelled this blend, I assumed it would be my favorite tea in the box. The blueberry scent was strong and the tea brewed into a pretty reddish purple color. I loved the apple in this tea because it added a nice crisp quality. The blueberry added enough sweetness for me and the hibiscus added a mild floral flavor. This blend is a one out of three on the caffeine scale which makes it a great day/afternoon tea for me. I think this would be really nice as an iced tea as well.

Vanilla Cupcake – Black Tea

This is a really strong black tea and the three out of three on the caffeine scale makes it a great wake-up brew! This is a Vietnamese black tea with vanilla bean. I really like the strength of the Vietnamese tea and the vanilla just adds a slight sweetness with a nice aroma. I would suggest paying attention to the steeping instructions to avoid bitterness! This had a quick three-minute steep time and requires soft boiling water (not rapid boiling). I preferred this as a plain black tea but a little bit of sweetener or creamer would send this into dessert territory quickly!

Hazelnutty – Black Tea

Opening the pouch of this tea was like walking into a bakery. I loved the rich nutty scent of this tea and it blended nicely with the coconut, orange, and clove aromas. I always find Field to Cup‘s black tea to be pretty perfect and the added flavors are a bonus. I tasted the black tea and clove first but the hazelnut and orange rounded out the tea nicely. When the tea has a slight dessert feel, I often add some sweetener but I actually preferred this without anything. It’s always awesome to find a great black tea with a three out of three on the caffeine scale because I can add it to my morning coffee/tea rotation.

Verdict: Field to Cup is always a fun box for me. This box felt rooted in summer but still has a nice variety of flavors. My favorites from this month were Blood Orange and Body Refresher. I think my favorite thing about Field to Cup is that they always send things I haven’t tried before and aren’t likely to see in a local store. There are definitely some familiar flavors but they’ve really expanded my tea knowledge!

I got March box. I also got fraudulent charges on my debit card a few days after purchasing. I’m curious to know if anybody else got the same problem. I’m not blaming the company just trying to figure out where these fraudulent charges were coming from

My husband tasted the Hazelnutty and said – “this tastes like cookies!”

As a quilter, I find it easiest to take a square of muslin and stitch the tea into it for steeping LOL.

Shirley

Hi Dea,

We’re so happy you and your husband are enjoying your teas so far!

I love that you make individual tea bags for steeping. Does muslin allow good water flow? Just curious!

Thanks for continuing to be a subscriber of Field to Cup 🙂
