OMG I love this tea! After I bought it I lost it at my parent’s house and it just resurfaced. It is pretty EG on the sip, but that fades into a really nice passion fruit flavor at the end. It is such an interesting twist to EGs and I’m really bummed that Lupicia is discontinuing it. I only have 5 or so tea bags left. :(

Aw, that’s a shame that they’re discontinuing this one. I wish they offered the Hawaiian blends online, I would love to try them!

Dustin

They discontinued several of them. One in particular deserved to be discontinued, but not this one. Occasionally they will sell them online, you just have to keep an eye on the site.

Hmmm, tasting a little bitter. Did I over steep?! Cream and sugar to the rescue! It’s much better now. Seems like a nice breakfast type tea. I think I can pick out a tiny bit of bergamot in the end of the sip. There are other breakfast type teas that I like better than this one, so I’m not likely to pick this one up, but am glad to have tried it.

Not sure how old this sample is, but I get nothing from this tea. :( I’m not able to detect mango or ice cream. Another black tea that my taste buds don’t get along with.

bummer. You should try Mango Lassi by Davids. soo yummy

Kittenna

Nuts, this tea was actually pretty good when it came out, but I believe that was a couple years ago.

Dustin

Yeah, two years is a good amount of time for tea to loose flavor.

I’ll have to check out the Mango Lassi! What is the base?

Kittenna

Just FYI – Mango Lassi is up for retirement, so it may be difficult to get. It’s an herbal though, with chamomile. Pretty tasty but the chamomile is a bit overwhelming (unless you like chamomile, in which case it might not be).

Skysamurai

ahhhhh pooo….. I knew I shoulda picked up more while I was at the store. Dustin i can send you some if you wish =]

Huh, this is kind of earthy. Smooth. Almost a faint taste of hay. Adding cream and sugar makes this delicious! This is nice!

This seems really light for a black tea! I can get the apricot notes, but I’m also getting this aftertaste that is similar to the aftertaste of the ocean, but without the salt. Weird, right?! I get more flavor from it cold than I do hot and the flavor is very light and subtle. It’s very nice, but I’m a fan of bolder flavors.

This has a much brighter lighter taste than the last tea I just tasted! It is almost tart like the skin of a plum and there is an aftertaste like tobacco. This tea is almost juicy. There is a slight dryness after each sip. Interesting!

This tea is really interesting! It almost has a spice on it. It is really smooth, has a little malt to it. I added some cream and sugar and WOW. This is really good. I need to hang onto this and have some more.

This tea is striking me as odd. I get only the faintest taste of spice, very muted. I can kind of imagine lavender, but I really have to think about it. It almost tastes like there is cacao in the aftertaste and the longer aftertaste turns a little bitter. I’m betting some sugar would help, but I’d be worried that adding milk would wipe out what little flavor there is.

Not sure how old this sample is, but the coconut is doing that old coconut thing and tasting a little soapy. Beyond that I get a nice lemongrass flavor. A little bit of spice, but not much is getting past the lemongrass. This tea is okay, but it isn’t impressive either.

Wow, I can smell the cinnamon in this one through two layers of bags! That is some strong stuff. The scent is intensely cinnamon once steeped too. There is so much cinnamon that it tastes a little sweet on it’s own. It reminds me of Hobbie’s orange cinnamon tea that has so much cinnamon that it gives me a stomach aches. The most delicious stomach aches ever, mind you, but I have learned my lesson over time and am concerned of the same happening here. I don’t even taste the tea. Just cinnamon. That is what this tea is all about.

Bio

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!!!!
