I recently came across a new tea by Tazo called Organic Peachy Green.
It is a blend of green and black tea, with the flavor of peach and cucumber. It has a very nice, smooth flavor and a wonderful peachy aroma.
Ingredients: Organic Darjeeling Green and Organic Black Teas, Natural flavors of Cucumber and Peach
Tea Review: Russian Caravan Black Tea
Russian Caravan is a black tea made by Choice Organic Tea. It has a rather strong flavor that is kind of smoky in nature, almost like a campfire. I would recommend steeping it for less time than recommended, maybe for a minute or less. (Instead of 4 – 5 minutes). The tea is from China and is a combination of Yunnan Tea with smoked Lapsang Souchong. This is a quote from the back of the box:
“Explore the exotic with this distinctly smoky tea, a taste coveted by a 19th century Russian czar. His camel caravans traveled perilous routes from China, where nightly campfires added to the tea’s heady aroma.”
They don’t say what czar this would be, however. All in all, this is a strong and unusual tea.

Tea Review: Choice Organic Decaffeinated Green Tea
Choice Organic Decaffeinated Green Tea is a “full-bodied” naturally decafinated green tea that is fair trade certified. Note that this means that the tea is rather strong, so if you are used to a more mild green tea, this may be an acquired taste. I have really grown to like it, though. It tastes a bit bitter at first, but it has a very nice flavor, and I like the fact that it is decaf and fair trade.
