5 Teas to Get You Through April

No fooling, it’s time to line up another round of tasty teas to get you through the month ahead. Between preparing your tax return to baying at the full moon, it’s going to be a busy month. Let’s see what tea can do for us this time around.

1 In This “April Fool” Month Look Smart with a Cuppa Lady Londonderry Tea in Hand

Lady Londonderry, aka Edith Vane-Tempest-Stewart, Marchioness of Londonderry, was no fool. Mother of   five. Volunteer coordinator during World War I, including setting up a hospital in the estate home (just like in the popular series Downton Abbey). Designer of the gardens at the family estate. Wow!You won’t be a fool either when you sip on a cuppa this delightful afternoon tea. A black tea with a malty floral flavor, hints of strawberry and lemon, dried orange, daisy white and natural flavors. An orthodox tea, that is, not dust but large leaf pieces to steep up a fuller flavor.

2 Don’t Sweat the Taxes When You Sip Some Harney and Sons Green Tea with Coconut, Ginger, and Vanilla

Stay cool and calm while doing your tax return with this flavorful tea from the tea masters at Harney & Sons. It’s a flavorful blend of green tea, coconut, ginger, vanilla and lemongrass — inspired by Thai tea traditions. This blend is part of the Historical Royal Palace line. So maybe it will have a regal effect on you and then you can collect, instead of pay, those taxes. All hail the Tea Monarch!

3 Take a Big Whiff of Jasmine with Flowers Green Tea

Nothing is so wonderful as the scent of flowers in the Springtime. And this tea certainly evokes such pleasure. This is a steamed green tea from Fujian Province, China, grown 1,500 feet above sea level. This environment produces a tea with surprising body and a captivating floral taste that is not found in any other natural tea. On the nose the dry tea has a floral   bouquet which literally causes your senses to come alive with pleasant thoughts. The flavor is enhanced with the addition of jasmine blossoms which give the tea a visual appeal few other teas are capable of copying. This grade of jasmine tea is the first grade below the exotic jasmines yet has all the flavor, aroma and good green tea qualities without the exorbitant price.
