The best way to start the morning? With chocolate of course! This is a really yummy chocolate black tea. It has an amazing base tea and the chocolate flavoring is subtle and brings out the maltiness in the tea. I am really enjoying my cuppa this morning. :-)

Oh how I love cinnamon. I am a huge fan of cinnamon in just about everything. This is quite a delicious cinnamon tea. Tastes great hot or iced. I love that there is a subtle sweetness to it so I did not add any sweetner to it. Another glorious find at the Super Target!

I got this in my Birchbox for this month. If any of you guys like cosmetic samples its an awesome deal check it out! It’s always a nice surprise when they send some tea in the box. It’s normally just cosmetic samples. This is a decent fruity black tea. It smells delish but something about the flavoring just isn’t there for me. It just needs a little more of something not sure what though. I only have two teabags of it so I can’t experiment too much. But I can say it is not the worst peach tea I have ever had either. I am definitely happy that the black tea base had no bitterness to it though.

So I just moved recently and one of the cool things I finally have near me is a Super Target. I spent way too much time there yesterday. But the highlight was that they carry a couple of H&T blends including this one. This was quite tasty. A good balance of mint and chocolate. I had it as a dessert last night and it was exactly what I needed.

Oh yum! I love almonds and almond flavored anything so I was pretty sure I would love this. This is a definite winner! I did the basic grade with distinctive flavoring and love that it’s more of a sweet almond flavoring. I added a little almond milk to it to make it more of a latte and it made it taste even better. So much almond I love it! :-)

So sad this is my last cup of this. I really liked this one. Probably going to have to put in a request that it gets reblended. So yummy but so sad at the same time…Oh well guess it is good since it’s one less tea in my overflowing cupboard.

I have been meaning to try this brand of chai and I happened to find a variety pack on clearance at REI. This is tasty. Very creamy and sweet. I am not a huge fan of chai mixes that have milk and sugar already in them. But thankfully what is in there isn’t nearly as bad as some of the chai mixes I’ve seen. I’ve seen some that have 27-30grams of sugar for an 8oz serving! The flavor of this is really nice the cardamom brings a very refreshing sweet flavor to the chai and is not overwhelming. I also love that this chai mix disolves completely so there no mix sitting at the bottom of the cup at the end.

Got this as a sample from Lupicia. This is a really good subtle flavored black blend. The strawberry and vanilla are so light it works with the black tea beautifully. Next time I have some of this I would definitely like to try adding some milk, maybe make it a latte. I feel the flavors would work really well as a latte.

My name is Heather, it’s probably been about 5 years now since I really got into tea. I love everything about it. I am willing to try any tea once no matter how crazy the blend sounds. I discovered a lot of really good teas this way.
Tea is really a source of happiness and escape for me now. Now if I could just find a job in the tea industry I would be complete :-)
