This wasn’t working for me this time around. The flavors smelled nice and melded together well, but the sencha base is very spinachy. Just not what I was in the mood for today.

drank Caramel Popcorn by Tea Guys
558 tasting notes

Another sample from LauraR. Thanks for sending all of these wonderful samples my way.

This tea tastes exactly like it’s name. Caramel Popcorn. It’s so buttery and sweet, like a kettle corn. Unfortunately my taste buds don’t like drinking liquid sweet butter. But it smells very nice and tastes very accurate. No rating at this time.

How did I not know this tea existed before this moment?

I am so very sad Tea Guys beat Frank to this! But it sounds AMAZING! I’ve been looking for popcorn tea vs the crisped rice cereal of gen mai cha.

Tastes like a good green tea. A really good green tea. I don’t really know how to describe the taste…light and refreshing. Thankfully not as hay and spinach tasting as green teas I despise. Not quite as sweet as sencha, but very tasty.

drank Honeydew by Teas Etc

This is byfar the truest honeydew flavored tea, honeydew flavored anything, I have tried. A gold star to Teas Etc for hitting this right on the mark. The white tea is the perfect pairing for the light honeydew flavor. I enjoy the lightness this tea has.

I’ve really been falling in love with strawberry teas lately. And most recently flavored sencha’s have been in my top teas as well. This tea makes the list. Such a sweet succulent berry flavor. I will definitely be checking out more teas from Culinary teas…as soon as I make room in my cupboard. A friend at work purchased 8-10 different teas for me for my birthday, plus the recent Teavana and Harney’s orders, plus hubby took me to Teavana for more teas….I’ve got some time before I can decupboard anything. Glad I got a chance to try this tea, thanks again to LauraR and her wonderful sample package!

sounds so good! I’ve ordered from Culinary teas and I was happy :) They always have that 10% coupon on their page.

Why am I wishing for a Long Island Iced Tea at 10:30 in the morning?? :)

I love love love the cranberry flavor in this tea! It is wonderfully bright, zesty and just tart enough to be the perfect cranberry flavor. It mingles with hints of orange and a great black tea base.

In the leaves their are whole dried cranberries! I was impressed to see the dried fruit in there…I wanted to eat them. I’m not sure if they add to the taste but they made the brewing experience enjoyable. This may be my go to morning cuppa for the rest of the month…or at least the week. Very good cuppa.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

backlogging from last night.

My Harney order arrived yesterday:) I didn’t get home until after 9 pm and really wanted to try one of my new teas, so this was the winner. I wanted to hit the hay after enjoying my cup of tea.

The aroma from this tea smelled like sweet cookies baking, lots of caramel goodness with wafts of rich vanilla. The liquor steeped up as dark as a caffeinated black tea, a nice amber. The taste was impressive. Sweet, but not overly fake and artificial, just a nice vanilla bean and caramel with a smooth and malty black tea taste. Very impressed by my first black tea from Harney. I am glad this tea lives up to what everyone has said about it! I found a new night time favorite.

I can’t believe I haven’t tried this tea yet. I wonder if I have received it in a swap. Ignoring the fact that it’s slightly ridiculous that I can’t remember if I have or not, I’m kind of hoping that I’m just that forgetful and I have it because your description is really enticing!

Meghann M

If you find that you haven’t any in your stash, let me know and I would be more than happy to send you a bag. I have a feeling this will be a nighttime favorite and will be ordering a larger quantity next time. Only downfall is it isn’t available looseleaf…yet.

JacquelineM

Meghann – I bought a pound of this looseleaf! I think it only comes in a pound or something big looseleaf, but not a 4 oz tin loose.

Jaime

Yes, I have got to try this tea. Have seen nothing but rave reviews.

Kristin

I have some of this on the way right now. I can’t wait to try it!

ashmanra

After trying it one time, my hubby said, “Order the one pound bag!” And you are right, that is the only way to buy it loose leaf.

Kristen

I def want to order this with my next harney order!

Meghann M

I didn’t think I would need to place another order with them so soon, but I must not let myself run out of this, and I think I need to get a tin of the Tower of London as well. Harney does teas well.

I’ve been liking mint teas less and less lately, but this one seems to be sweet and light and very chocolatey. I received a sample from LauraR with the big sample box she sent my way. It’s very tasty and I could see purchasing this to get through dessert cravings this winter. I bet it would be good with a few chocolate marshmallows mixed in. Very chocolatey and not in a fake chocolate way. Milk chocolate and mint goodness, covers up the rooibos nicely!

LauraR

I drink this with a splash of chocolate milk :)

drank Lucari Chai by BourgeaTEA
558 tasting notes

Wow is this tea spicy in a cinnamon goodness way. The green tea is hardly noticeable in this blend, but that is okay because there is so much sweet spicyness going on. I made this without additives to try it out. Pretty powerful for a green tea chai blend. Impressive. Thanks LauraR for the opportunity to sample this tea!

Made a second steep from last nights leaves. Much more citrus came through in this steep and I actually tasted some of the lovely white tea. The spices were still present and I loved it.

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
