Field to Cup Tea Discoverer January 2019 Review
The information insert includes a description of each tea, steeping instructions, and a place for you to record your thoughts on each brew.
Also included were 9 lovely disposable tea bags for the perfect steep!
Premium Herbal Tea Chrysanthemum Buds, 10g- Buy 85g for $25.33
I love this sub because they always send the most unusual and exciting teas! This little bag was filled with dried yellow mum blossoms and they were so beautiful! They brew up into a very fine tea with a hint of spice. I also used them as beautiful accents to my other brews this month. I didn’t add anything to this brew because I didn’t want to mask the sunny bright flavors of the flowers.
Premium White Tea Aged Bai Mu Dan, 20g- Buy 85g for $31.60
The flower trend continues in this brew is made from 5 year aged white peony. It tastes of green things and sweet hay and summer fields to me. added a little bit of raw sugar but no cream, as I was worried about masking the delicate flavors found in this brew. I have never had anything quite like this!
Premium Black Tea Malawi Grand Cru, 20g- Buy 85g for $40.20
This tea isn’t sweet, but it has an unmistakable sweet fruit scent that clings to it, giving it a lot of complexity. That sweetness is balanced out with the very deep green sort of flavor that tastes of dark leaves and chocolate. I added some raw sugar and a little splash of almond milk to this cup, which only added to its depth.
Oolong Tea Ancient Vietnamese Reserve, 20g- Buy 85g for $14.86
This tea comes from the leaves of 500-year-old trees in Northern Vietnam! These are some special leaves. The flavor is bright and smooth, and it is such an easy tea to drink at any time of day. Add cream and sugar or leave it be either way, it will be delicious.
Premium Black Tea Imperial Shu 2009, 20g- Buy 357g for $126.49
This tea is a labor of love from a husband and wife team in China. They handpick the leaves, hand roll them, and then leave them in the sun to dry. After, they are pressed into little cakes and then left to ferment. They are then aged. You should really treasure this tea! You can enjoy it now and let the rest age for an even more complex and special flavor later on. The scent to me is of almost pure leather, and it has this ancient flavor to it that has to be from the fermentation. The closest memory I can grab from it is of being in the stables, saddling up my favorite horse, surrounded by leather tack and fresh hay. This was so special.
Verdict: Field to Cup was extraordinary for me this month. I was so happy that there was not a holiday-ish tea or chai in sight! Instead, we got a heavy dose of flowers, ancient leaves, and hand made techniques. Instead of spices, we experienced fresh hay, leather, and the feeling of the sun. In the dead of winter, I really needed this! This month easily goes down as my all time favorite so far from this sub, and I highly recommend you see if you can get your hands on this box. It sums up the very best of this subscription, at least in my book.
