Here’s a closer look at the April Simple Loose Leaf tea box….
Decaf English Breakfast
“Often times when you choose to forgo caffeine at tea time you are forced to give up some of the classic teas that many tea drinkers love. But not today! This English Breakfast black is a classic blend that has been decaffeinated. Enjoy it neat or with a spot of milk and honey.”
Ingredients: Blended Organic Decaf Black Teas
I honestly didn’t know that decaf black coffee even existed! So often black tea can only be enjoyed in the morning or afternoon, so it was a real treat to have a black tea before bed and not be up all night because of the caffeine! I love a english breakfast and this one tasted amazing with a splash of milk.
“Using our favorite South Indian black tea as a base, this Tropical Black features a wonderful range of flavors. The base provides a slight hint of caramel while the mango provides the “fun in the sun” feel every beach lover knows! Tropical Black is versatile, so serve it hot or cold, with a little fresh fruit or neat. Experiment with this tea and make it your own perfect break from life.”
Ingredients: South Indian Black Tea, Dried Mango Pieces (Mango, Sulphur Dioxide [A Preservative]), All Natural Flavor, Safflower Petals, Sunflower Petals.
I absolutely loved the mango notes in this tea! I decided to enjoy it cold and added a slice of orange with the ice. It was refreshing and a perfect spring drink.
Simple Earl Grey
“Simple Earl Grey is a classic Earl Grey Black Tea that uses a wonderful South Indian Black Tea. When first opening this tea, you’ll smell the telltale citrus bergamot. But smell a second time and you’ll catch the scent of rich orange zest that is a little sweeter than other bergamots. Enjoy this tea hot to enjoy it in the classic style or brew sun tea and serve with a slice of orange to really brighten this lovely tea.”
Ingredients: South Indian Black Tea, Safflower Petals, All Natural Flavor
I have had the opportunity to try this tea before and it is one of the most reliably good teas out there. Again, I added a slice of orange to this tea as suggested, but this time I enjoyed it hot and it was bright and wonderful. A true classic tea.
Simple Apricot Black
“Our Simple Apricot Black is just that, nice and simple. It focuses as much on the South Indian Black Tea as it does the extras in this tea. The apricot presents a strong nose when you first smell this tea. But as you brew it, the apricot settles into a much more subdued profile. The slight caramel of the black tea mixes with the apricot to be slightly sweet but still very rich. This tea would be a great iced tea that will be a lighter “flavored” tea. You can add a little milk to this tea but we like it served neat.”
Ingredients: South Indian Black Tea, Dried Apricot Pieces (Apricot, Sulphur, Dioxide [A Preservative], Rice Flour [To Prevent Caking]), All Natural Flavor, Safflower Petals, Sunflower Petals
The apricot in this tea is subtle yet rich. It blended perfectly with the black tea and tasted great iced. I hope I have an opportunity to try this one again. I’d love to share it with my mother (who also loves apricots!) if summer were to ever get here!
Simple Loose Leaf Review April 2022 – Final Thoughts
This month’s sampling of teas was a wonderful selection of black teas. I really appreciate that Simple Loose Leaf included decaf tea! As always, Simple Loose Leaf deliver amazing quality tea that I know will be the perfect cup every time.
