Deep roasted nutty flavor with
Bread notes

This is wonderful when steeped for 3 minutes,
but even better (JMHO) when steeped up to 4 1/2 minutes or so
It never becomes bitter or astringent…simply deeper flavor.

It reminds me of Soba Cha Deep Roast without the overwhelming sweetness
or the sweet aroma…I cannot say this has an aroma after steeping
dry it smells lightly green/vegetal

I wish I could keep this and order more….Love it ♡

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 34 OZ / 1000 ML

I am not sure if I underleafed this or ir it is so mild that I am unable
to discern any particular flavors…I may try again later.

The tea has no particular fragrance dry or otherwise.
The liquor has a bit of an oily substance to it that gives it a rather
silky texture to the mouthful.
A touch of stevia brings out a very slight fruity flavor.

Oh good, I was just checking in yesterday with you and the box.

So much for my love of flavored teas :-/
I taste the marshmallows, but the base tea is much to watery & weak
and it just doesn’t stand up to the marshmallows and sweetness well.
For me, the base tea needs to be much heavier.
Mostly with this one I just get overly sweet with little substance.
The really sad part is the dry tea looked and smelled so yummy…
sigh…perhaps my expectations were too high.

Flavors: Marshmallow

Aw sad, this is one I’m interested in trying. I’m sorry that you didn’t like it. D:

I’m with you, I know it’s VERY popular, but I just can’t stand this tea.

CelebriTEA

Well, we all have different tastes ;-)
The fact that we are all different is what makes this world interesting

The smell of this tea is very non-descript…simply tea.
A moderately woody tea with light fruity and nutty notes and
a moderate astringency without bitterness.
I throughly enjoyed this tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Nutty, Wet Wood

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA

I am not crazy about chocolate and mint in teas…
so it is just “ok” for me.
I would much prefer a rich cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows
or whipped cream.
I prefer many of David’s other teas,but this just doesn’t do it for me :-(

Flavors: Chocolate

Cameron B.

I feel the same way about chocolate teas – the flavor always seems very thin and unsatisfying. Perhaps I just haven’t met the right chocolate tea yet…

CelebriTEA

I have tried several now and while this one was not bad, I would much rather have
a simple cup of hot cocoa :-)

Cameron B.

Yeah I think that’s my problem too, no tea can ever hope to compare to a hot chocolate in terms of creamy chocolateyness. And I shouldn’t expect them to. :P

This was a tiny sample from the here’s hoping traveling box…
there were no blueberries in the sample and no taste of blueberry.
This simply tasted like maple syrup in water…not even the cinnamon flavor
that is on the top of blueberry buckle…such a disappointment :-(

Tea Sipper

aw, the blueberry must have disappeared since I last had it. :/

drank Golden Earl by Verdant Tea
129 tasting notes

Mmmmm…I love EG’s & THIS does not disappoint!
The Lemon grass and Orange peel balance out the Bergomot really nicely…
The overall feel is rich and creamy, BUT
The bready taste from the Yunnan Golden Buds
gives it somewhat of a cookie texture to me…mmmm….so perfect.
If you have not tried this Yet it is definitely worth the coins.
Best for a relaxing morning or evening wind down…
love, Love, LOVE

Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon, Orange

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 34 OZ / 1000 ML

I am thinking rooibos may not be for me.
The chocolate in this is not rich…so flat and just blech…
Sickeningly sweet… I added the recommended splash of milk
And it made it just tolerable

Preparation
8 OZ / 236 ML
