Field to Cup Tea Adventurer March 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 was our monthly roll of 9 disposable tea bags for the perfect steep!
EXTRA TEA: Premium Green Tea Bergamot Bliss, 10g- Buy 85g for $27.31
My absolute favorite tea is Earl Grey, and this tea really felt like the green tea version! The tea itself is very light and bright, with a super pure taste to it. It has a definite floral note (I wrote down JASMINE in all caps in my notebook) even though there doesn't appear to be any actual flowers happening here. The bergamot fragrance is bold and sunny and complements the tea itself beautifully. Try this one alone or add your fave sugar, just not too much!
Premium Pouchong Tea Plus Belle, 20g- Buy 85g for $44.58
This tea also had a jasmine overtone, but this time with an almost grassy/hay base. It was floral and as described in the booklet, creamy. I enjoyed this tea without any additives because the taste was quite delicate, and I didn't want to mask its beauty.
Black Tea Organic Nilgiri Silk, 20g- Buy 85g for $17.39
These tea leaves were so long that they were difficult to actually get into the provided tea bags without making a mess! It felt like a pretty traditional black tea, and I could imagine my Nana icing it for the sweet tea she always serves to guests. I found that this one needed a longer steep time than the 4 minutes recommended, or it was a little milder than I enjoy. It was very smooth and had a malty flavor.
Green Tea Organic Green Jewel, 20g- Buy 85g for $41.77
This tea had a few interesting descriptive words in our booklet this month, making it the one I was most eager to try. Seawater? Limes?? The first thing I noticed was how tiny the tea leaves were. This made for a super fast brew, which is good because green teas quickly go bitter so I am always paranoid. This green was a little foggy, and did indeed have a slightly briny taste, though I do mean that as a compliment! It reminded me very much of SeaQuench Ale, especially with a little bit of sugar added. You could easily enjoy this one with a lemon slice to really make it tangy! I drew a heart next to this one in my booklet, so you know its good.
Premium Oolong Tea Formosa Bai Hao, 20g- Buy 85g for $37.15
This tea tasted super healthy if that makes any sense. It just felt good for me! It had a really calm and complex hay taste and feel, with a healthy dose of honey flavor. I enjoyed it with cream and raw sugar for a comforting mid-day cap.
Verdict: Field to Cup had some new favorites for me this month. The Green Sea Jewel was so unusual and exactly what I love to get in a box like this. I have never had anything like it! I also enjoyed the multiple jasmine notes happening in a few of these teas, and the complexities of the Oolong choice and the Pouchong. The Nilgiri silk was a more traditional feeling brew, and I plan on icing the rest of it! The variety this month was outstanding, and there wasn't a single blend I am not excited to drink!
