Received this as a sample with my Heavenly Sale order. The little card said to dump the entire 1oz sample into a PerfectTea Maker. I don’t have one of those.

The last sample I got from them was so strong that I was able to use just a teaspoon for an 8oz cup. Figuring this would be a similar case, I used two teaspoons for my large penguin mug. No milk, no sugar. This resulted in a weak tea that was full of cinnamon flavor, with a bite of spice at the end.

I realized just now it says 1oz tea to 16oz of water. That’s a LOT of tea. While I like this, I don’t see myself shelling out that kind of money for a cup of tea. I couldn’t even do that for my favorite teas, and this wouldn’t be one of them. I realize that half of this sample pouch is full of sugar, but still.

Btw, Teavana, can I get a sample that is not sugared someday? I mean, I REALLY appreciate the free tea, but coming from a family of diabetics, I try to watch how much sugar I take in. Your samples do not allow me to try your teas unsweetened, or with honey, ect. Marketing something as “Healthy!!! OMG!!!” and then dumping a whole bunch of rock sugar into it is silly. This one was REALLY sweet. I honestly think I would have liked it better if I could have added my own sugar, or had it plain.

Are we like, somehow connected (that’s not creepy…)? I made this one this morning! XD

I used the whole packet to a teapot… I think I’m drinking potpourri… blech

I agree with the PS too… the sugar left a really weird aftertaste… :/

It’s weird, right? We’ve been having a lot similar teas lately.

I have no idea how to feel about this one. I like cinnamon, but wow. I cannot imagine having used a whole packet…yikes!

I was hoping for a little more oolong, or something…

HA! My husband just compared this to those scented pine cones that you see around the holidays …I have to agree!!!

I love crafting (especially macrame), books, and tea (obviously). I also collect Wade figurines (…the same people who make the figurines for Red Rose tea.).

I have a slight obsession with nail polish.

I adore Earl Grey. :)
