This MIGHT have been ok with a black base?¿?
I can’t taste the orange peel which I believe would
have enhanced the experience for me.
I am not crazy about almond extract either.
Nothing about this is my style, blech…

Preparation
5 g 8 OZ / 236 ML
Angrboda

The name of this one would appeal to Husband immensely, whisky enthusiast that he is. :D

LOL…I could drink whiskey If I weren’t dieting, but this (to me) doesn’t correlate to whiskey when I drink it ?

This one seems more like a substitute for coffee rather than a tea, but I liked it a lot. It does not correlate to whiskey to me either.

‘Cask strength’ is a whisky term. It neams the alcohol strength of the whisky in the cask. When bottled, it’s usually watered down to around 40% because that makes far less expensive to produce and the taste more appealing to most consumers. You can get some that were bottled at cask strength, which you would then dilute yourself when drinking but these are very expensive. These are the things I’ve learned with a whisky enthusiast Husband and ditto father. Never touch the stuff myself, it’s icky.

I imagine they probably thought the rooibos base could simulate the wood of the cask, maybe? Rooibos has a sort of wood-y flavour to me.

This is more of a clove and nutmeg tea with a black base.
Two of my favorite spices.
The pumpkin is not really recognizable it is so light, but oh I love the clove!
Reminds me of the clove gum, but the flavor is a bit more complex than the gum.
I really like this.

Flavors: Cloves, Nutmeg

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 34 OZ / 1000 ML

Ahhhh…to whom do I owe a debt of grattitude?
I cannot remember….
1 scoop Coconut Matcha + 1 scoop White Chocolate Matcha= Pure Heaven
I only THOUGHT I loved the coconut before.
Adding the white chocolate to the coconut (especially in whole milk…hehehe)
Makes this an unbelievably creamy coconut drink.
Thank you for this recipe dear one :-)
I haven’t tried the white chocolate on its own yet, 
& I may not for awhile…I have dreams of mixing it in a blender with some fruit.
If you like the coconut…do yourself a flavor and try it like this ;-)

Actually, I see this flavor being an awesome conduit for many shake
and smoothie….this is divine.

Oh BTW…using distinctive flavoring all the way…

Lovely…
I think the tight little balls of leaves are adorable and I love the floral scent.
The grape flavor is gently revealed throughout each sip.
I never had a clue I could like oolongs so much.
This is lovely and perfect for a relaxing cuppa.

Flavors: Flowers, Grapes

Trying this with O.N.E. Coconut Water with a splash of pineapple(COLD)
I much prefer with milk…I adedd a packet of stevia…
what can I do to make the water version more appealing?
I am wanting to go on a diet…help?

Stephanie

Maybe try the 40 calorie per cup almond milk? It is creamier than coconut water

mj

Can you get LaCroix sparkling water where you are? Their coconut sparkling water is really good! They have other flavors as well. It’s all naturally flavored with 0 calories. I tried it with some matcha and liked it a lot.

Marzipan

second Stephanie’s suggestion – I believe it’s Almond Breeze that has the fewest calories.

CelebriTEA

I am going to check on the LaCroix Sparkling water and the Almond Breeze…question about the Almond Breeze…is it sickening sweet like Soy Milk?

CelebriTEA

Thanks so much for the suggestions

Stephanie

Make sure you get the unsweetened vanilla almond milk! :D

CelebriTEA

Thanks Stephanie

Somehow I expected this to “look” chocolate…it does not.
However, it does have a magical chocolatey flavor…
I got distinctive this time and sooooo worth it.
I am drinking this as a cold latte in vanilla Silk(soy milk)
Lucious chocolate latte.
I am on a huge Matcha splurge…drinking this for my health
and soooo making a commitment.
Thanks Robert at Red Leaf Tea for getting my order together so nicely.
Also, thanks for the exceptional customer care given to myself and my friend Zelia.
I will be doing a bit of advertising for ya with friends ;-)
Thanks again to Miss B & Just James for the hook up …
love you both
