DON'T GET A WITCH TWISTED

Divider 3.png

Being a Witch is not about being bad.  It is about accepting your TRUE self.  It's living in a way where you are the best version of yourself.  Not to spite others.  But,  in spite of others.

A Little Witchy Review: Nelson's Tea


In my tea learning journey I have discovered that I am a strong black tea lover. I have also discovered I like strong fruit flavors. This company has mastered both. I am starting to shorten the reviews because I have so many now. I won't shorten this one, though. This review is a joy to do because this company has superior personalized customer service with wonderful products touched with love.



Tea is not necessarily about the flavor -

but more about the experience.




I can across this shop on Esty.com before I even knew how much I liked tea. I have learned so much about tea now...from this store!!!


The watermelon mint jumped out at me.


(Ingredients: Green Rooibos, spearmint, echinacea, linden leaf, coriander, Safflower, eucalyptus, natural flavoring.)



Being a chef and herbalist, I love putting flavors together you wouldn't think of. This sounded like something I would do. I was intrigued and ordered a sample.


The watermelon mint feels cool and warm at the same time... if that makes sense. Simple...yet complicated. You get a hint of all the flavors at different times. That is a party on your tongue!! I'm hooked!






The order was delivered super fast and came with a sample of black lavender Earl Grey tea!



Ingredients: Black tea, lavender cornflower petals, natural flavor



They had me at lavender, actually!! The lavender tea is a different feel completely. It feels like you are in a flower garden with a water element. It is balanced, well flavored and is very soothing. I drink this to relax before meditation.



I had just bought a sampler and they sent me a full free sample. I was a first time buyer as well. They treated me like royalty. That is great business 101!!!!



That sounds CRAZY, right????


Can there be old-fashioned great customer

service............ on the internet?



Wait...... It gets better. I reached out to the company for a collaboration.

I was answered quickly and eagerly. She gladly sent me samples.





Let me say this before I go further. This is not just a tea company. I have bought:


Rose hips



 

Rose buds



They are fragrant and just as much love and care was put into these as the teas!!



 


The Nelson's sent me a generous box of samples for review. Honestly.... there was not one tea in the box that I didn't like.


NOT ONE


I will list the samples sent below with a description of how the made me feel. I do feelings more than flavor profiles. I am still new to tea lingo...lol. However, the feeling is what I look for first anyway. A tea may be healthy for you and may not taste great. I am an intuitive, so that is how I describe a tea. (and food for that matter) Here we go...

(I saved my favorite for last!!)


MINT MELANGE


Ingredients: Green Rooibos, spearmint, echinacea, linden leaf, coriander, and eucalyptus 


This tea is meant for soothing and relaxing. The mint is cool. The eucalyptus adds an unexpected finish. i only added agave sweetener with a squeeze of fresh lemon. It needed nothing more. I drink this after a hard day or before meditation.


 



PINEAPPLE MELON PUNCH

Ingredients: Apple, pineapple, green rooibos, cranberry, hibiscus, marigold, safflower, and natural flavoring


This tea makes you feel like you are on a tropical island. I had to add a little more tea than the directions stated. I like a strong flavor. This one is better cold...I think. The flavors pop over ice. I would even use it in a cocktail with a Jamaican rum. It is tropical tea for sure!! i drink this to lighten my mood.



 

MANGO PASSION FRUIT



Ingredients: Black tea, dried mango, cornflowers, marigold petals, safflower and natural flavoring


This one surprised me. I'm not usually a mango fan. In this tea, though, it was really good. I like it iced with a bit of hibiscus syrup that I got from Gran Gala. Another fruity tropical island. I love Jamaican rums. This is one I would make a cocktail with!

 

BLUEBERRY POMEGRANATE



Ingredients:White tea, rose hips, dried blueberries, safflower, and natural fruit flavoring.


This is the strongest blueberry tea I have come across yet. It is bold and fruity. That is my favorite combination. It makes you feel like you are in a fruit orchard. Light...airy..yet strong. That is funny coming from a white tea. But, it works. I love it!!

 

ARE YOU READY FOR MY FAVORITE? DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!!



 

BOURBON GINGER PEAR


Ingredients: Green rooibos, ginger root, white tea, elderflower, cornflower, dried pears and natural flavoring.




When I let the Nelson's know that this is my favorite, she let me know that this one is not as popular as she had hoped.


WHYYYYYYY?????


It is just delightful!!! It feels like a sweet breeze on a private island. You can taste each ingredient blended perfectly. It is a quiet riot. It is my favorite tea off ALL the teas I have tested thus far. I will keep this in my collection as long as they make it.


The owner told me it tastes different over ice. I will try and let you know how it went.



 

To sum it up... I had no downside to this company or the tea... other than I can't go to the building!!! The customer service alone will keep me a customer and a fan. If you have the chance, check them out. You will not regret it. Thank you again, Nelson's Tea, for your passion and diligent work. You have something special and I will always sing your praises!!
