I love coconut and chai. These together are delish! I added a little coconut milk and its even better. I will definitly search out more chai blends with coconut. Really good combo!

Trying to backlog some today….This one I love love love. Maple is so delicious in tea. I love having this one in the evening when I am craving a sweet treat. (I have to say tea has definitely saved me some calories these days) Anyway I love Frank’s honeybush blends and this one is no exception. It is exactly what I have come to expect from him. If you let it cool just a little bit you really get the full maple longjohn flavor. Yum!

Discovered a delicious combo. I use one bag of this and one bag of the sugar cookie sleigh ride and then it tastes like a spiced sugar cookie! For a bagged tea I really like this one. Nice one to have when I am craving some ginger.

Again I just can’t bring myself to put this in boiling water. (not sure why since this is the second green I’ve noticed that Lupicia states to brew this in boiling water…) So I did my normal steeping for greens. This is pretty good. Not my favorite gemaicha with matcha, but its not bad in any way. It’s just missing something for me I am not sure what though…..

Note to self. Stay away from this Genmaicha.. Any matcha+genmaicha tea with a 71 average rating is just terrible.

haha I agree. It’s not horrible though its just not the best genmaicha I’ve had either.

Had some of this earlier today. It says to steep in boiling water but I don’t like the idea of putting a green in boiling water. So I steeped it at a normal temp for greens. It smells really good very sweet and floral. It tastes really good. I was a little worried about how sweet it would be with the sugar that is in it, but it wasn’t bad at all. A very nice green tea.

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia

I got this in my New Year’s Happy bag. Which was a really awesome deal. Now I have to work my way through trying the different teas. So this one I am having after lunch since I was craving something sweet. So I was good and steeped this instead of having a cookie. Dry it smells like sweetened pineapple and coconut. Steeped it is delicious. Very buttery creamy flavor with just a hint of pineapple. I really like that you can taste the oolong more than the flavoring. Liking this one a lot. Yummy!

I love green tea. I also love cherry almond anything. So this was an instant buy for me when Frank put it up. Such a delicious blend. Sweet with a touch of smokiness from the gunpowder tea. Which helps to tame the cherry so it wasn’t too overpowering. Really yummy!

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 :-)
