Thanks Veronica for sending some of this my way.

This tea is great! The strawberry and cream flavour is really there – it’s definitely best after it’s cooled for a bit though. I’ll enjoy the rest of my sample for sure.

This tea is perfection. In every sense of the word.

I was surprised since I don’t get excited about a lot of green teas – this was so good.

drank SoHo Blend by Harney & Sons
701 tasting notes

I arrived back last night after a looong day of travel and a month away. In my travels I managed to stop at the Harney SoHo store and pick up some teas – woot! This is the first cup of tea I’ve sat down and enjoyed in over a month and I am impressed.

There’s definitely coconut with a light flavour of chocolate, nothing overwhelming in the chocolate, which is great. The tea base is great too. Overall an excellent tea that’s calming in it’s own way, or maybe that’s because I’m exhausted hah! Either way, I’m happy I picked this one up.

This is sadly my last teabag of this tea. But on the upside I’ll be home in two short weeks and the two hour drive may be worth it to pick up more of this. I shall decide then. Or maybe as I sip away at this, while still working on this paper.

This tea is amazing.

Thanks whatshesaid, and congratulations :)

Thanks Kittena!

This is a lovely oolong. It’s not overly strong, but very smooth and slightly vegetal. I’m not an expert by any means on oolongs, so I’m none to sure of what else to say about this one. I do prefer my Butiki Gui Fei, but this one is still quite enjoyable. I plan on resteeping this multiple times this afternoon.

This one is almost identical to David’s Coconut Oolong. Yum. I’d really have to have them side-by-side to decipher any difference. For now I’ll just enjoy this lovely cup of tea as I read article after article and write yet another paper.

On my second steep. I love oolongs for inspiration.

I enjoyed three steeps of this. How lovely.

Also, I’m trying to swap out everything I’m not loving before I’m gone for a month. Feel free to check out my swap posts and stuff in my cupboard if anyone’s interested. Thanks!

Thanks Faith for this one :)

I’m quite enjoying this tea. The cocoa is lovely and the chicory/licorice root (I’m guessing) adds a subtle almost-spiciness I wasn’t expecting. It more smells of cocoa than tastes of it. The backdrop is all peppermint. The ingredients work well together. The tea has a strong flavour, yet not one single ingredient overwhelms the rest.

This is one I’d consider having around to bring to work/school since it’s teabags and easier.

The resteep this morning is still quite flavourful. Yum.

drank Bananas Foster by 52teas

Thanks Kittena :)

The black base here was nicer than other 52Teas I’ve had. The banana was a bit too fake for my liking, though it certainly wasn’t bad. I could taste both the banana and cinnamon clearly. I’m just steeping for a second round now.

Holy delicious! Wow. It must be the sugar and caramel. This could satisfy a sweet craving in one sip.

I followed the directions for 1 tbsp. of matcha, 1 cups of milk, and a few ice cubes blended. Amazing! I may have to order this. And the Coconut MATHCAccino, since I adore coconut.

Thanks Stephanie!

Stephanie

The coconut version is fan friggun tastic! I’m serious, you should buy some if you loved the caramel!!! Sooooo gooooood.

Courtney

Awesome! Yeah I loved it. I basically inhaled it.

Thanks jessiwrites for this delightful sample.

Yet another awesome black tea. The flavours are delicate, yet clear and not overwhelming. The strawberry is slightly fake, but not offensively. I’m thoroughly enjoying this.

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
