Smells delicious and fruity, like peaches! When I taste it, it is smooth, fruity and well balanced. The aftertaste is fruity too. Sweetening it perks up the fruit a bit. I don’t know why, but fruity teas say “drink me iced” and this one screams it! I like this one!

There is something sort of powder tasting and flat about this tea. :/ Other than that it is pretty smooth, a little fruity and mild. Nothing I’m writing home about.

drank Finally Summer by ESP Emporium

Ehhhhh, I don’t think I like this one too much. It has a little bit of a citrusy taste, but it also has a Chinese herb taste too. Doesn’t make me think summer at all.

Mmm, yeah this is fruity! It is a nice light tea with lots of fruit flavors in it, mostly strawberry. It’s pretty good, but has a little flatness to it. I bet it would be even better as an iced tea!

I don’t know why, but the taste of this tea reminds me of a Vegas casino. How very very strange! It is a very light and mild tea. I can taste some of the ginseng and maybe a little fruitiness too. It is okay, but isn’t anything awesome.

drank Almond Cookie Green by Tea Embassy

A solidly reliable cup for to get me through a hectic day. Last day of the semester at school, after that I got two fillings at the dentist, then fought my way through traffic, now dragging myself through dinner. Early bedtime is in store for me tonight, but not before a resteep of this with dinner!

TeaBrat

boo for fillings! I need four done myself.

Dustin

Aww, that’s no fun! I’m lucky that these were small and done quickly, but man I hate the high pitched sound of that drill!

drank Holiday Tea by Harney & Sons

Yup, tastes like Xmas stuff. I get cinnamon and clove and lots of it. I can pick out a little orange, but no almond. It is okay, but it isn’t super impressive. Sort of a ho hum..

First thing I get is strawberry and then a hint of chocolate comes through. This is pretty light for a black tea. I’m not tasting much of the base, mostly just strawberry. It gets a little bitter as it cools. It is a decent tea, but not one that I will seek out.

Finishing off a sample in ATTB. This is really nice! It makes me think of the green tea they often serve in sushi restaurants, but there is more to it than that, it’s heartier too. There is a hint of cinnamon and popped rice. It isn’t quite savory, but almost. I’m not really getting any hints of maple, but the bottom of the bag isn’t always the most accurate representation of a tea either. I would like to cross paths with this tea again some day.

I kept glancing at the bag of this tea and reading “Jonestown Special” as the name of the tea. Yikes!
This tea started out being really sweet when warm. Sweet and fruity. But as it cools it starts to taste more like a Flinstone’s children’s vitamin. There is that artificial fruity taste followed by the vitamin aftertaste. Does this have Stevia in it?! I don’t like it. At all. :(

hahaha at Jonestown!

Marzipan

That would taste like grape!

Dustin

I think it was a little grape like, actually!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
