drank Strawberry by Lupicia

Got this as a free sample with the Lupicia letter that comes in the mail once a month. This one is okay but I just wish it had more straberry flavor to it. It smells wonderful and I wish that came across in the flavor. Oh well it was free so I can’t really complain :-)

Man this is my last cup of this too. I’m finishing off a lot of 52’s this week. It’s sad but my stash is looking more roomy for new teas :-)

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas

Well there wasn’t any question that I would enjoy this one. I love Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha and Browncoat Genmaicha. This was pretty much a combination of the two and yum what a perfect combination it is. This is a very smokey yet sweet genmaicha. Definitely one I will purchase again when it gets reblended. :-)

Mmmmmmm pancakey goodness. I don’t know why I waited so long to order this one. I guess I was just not worried since it was a permanent blend so I just kept glossing over it when I went to the site. Man that was stupid! I love this tea. I knew I would love it after I had the gooey butter cake black tea. Frank does the buttery/pastry like flavor the best! I wish this had a little more maple but otherwise it is delicious. Yum sipdown!

Sipdown! But trying to savor it since this is my last cup of this so sad….must order more soon. I love having a lemon flavored tea in the morning espcially one with a good amount of caffiene :-)

Oh caramel appley goodness. I love this oolong. I love it more now since I tried it once when I first got it but the flavors didn’t come together very well. So I put it aside so the flavors had a chance to blend more with the tea. Now it is perfect! These flavors are awesome with this oolong. Yum! Sipdown for sure!

Frank’s blends are best served after a couple of weeks so they have time to really settle since he blends them weekly :)

Yeah I finally figured that out haha. But I do appreciate the small batch style of making blends. :-)

Thanks for the sample of this one Stacy! Oh man this is so amazing! I have noticed any time Stacy does a “creamy” tea it is always so good. These flavors work really well together. The pineapple is sweet but not cloying at all. The cilantro adds the perfect herbal flavor to the mix. The Bai Mu Dan base is delicious as well. This is just perfection! I love it! Defenitely ordering a couple ounces of this soon.

This is an ok chai. It needs more of everything actually. The flavor is quite muted to me. I like my chai a little more robust than this. Glad I had only ordered a sample and not a full order of it.

Tried this yesterday but did not have a chance to review until now. I love jasmine green tea. This is a really good one. It is a very smooth green tea and the jasmine was very subtle not too flowery as some jasmine teas can get. I actually liked the second steep better then the first. The flavors came through stronger for me the second time around. Definite yum. Thanks Yssah! :-)

My name is Heather, it’s probably been about 4 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 :-)
