I REALLY wanted to like this. The other taster’s who tried it LOVE it. My husband LOVED it. However, to me I got a cough syrup like flavor at the end of the sip that I just could not get around. I am not rating this one because I am sure it is me! I am going to wait and give this tea another chance….

This is a great black tea. I drank it on the way to work this morning and enjoyed every sip. It was not a super bold tea a la a breakfast blend but it had some body and a nice mouthfeel and woke me up just fine.

What a nice black tea! I find it being a little more toned down black, but it certainly produces a very nice flavor (whatever the 5 teas may be).

I could taste the malty sweetness and a TANG of smoke that others have noted. The blend of teas is not listed specifically but I think I love the combination – there is also a tad note of malt.

This is a great blend of straight teas. Yum!

drank Toasted Marshmallow by DAVIDsTEA
217 tasting notes

This tea tasted somewhat like hot cinnamon toast crunch cereal. I kept trying to pin down what the flavor was and why it was so familiar. Originally, I made this tea without sugar or milk. I almost NEVER put milk in tea. However, when I added milk to this tea it really made the flavors JUMP out of the cup in a much more dimensional way. It also helped with the mouthfeel by giving the tea additional creaminess. This was an interesting blend, one I am happy I got to try. Thank you KallieBoo! for sending me this sample.

When I got this Tea the writing was in French and I had no clue what it said, We tried it and We thought almost the same thing at first, We was surprised when we looked it up in the booklet and it was supposed to be Toasted Marshmallows lol it was good tho

yeah, this one i definitely needed milk in… I tried it plain (as i usually drink all my teas… but I was not a fan)… But it was tasty with the milk!

Thank you KallieBoo for sending me a sample of this tea.
As a former coffee addict hazelnut coffee was my FAVORITE.

This tea has a delightful hazlenut aroma. As soon as I opened the bag I realized it was my familiar favorite!

The black tea base is somewhat hidden under the flavor — however, the flavor is SO GREAT that it is okay!

I must admit, I still do cheat on tea with a coffee every now and again…

drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia

I had a sample of this tea and I have ENJOYED it for the last few days. The sweet-tart flavor with the mellow green base is really wonderful. I am not really a grapefruit fan but for some reason this tea really hits the citrus spot.

While I drank this during blizzard Nemo I couldn’t log into Steepster. So it is a bit of a back log.

This is more of a SIPDOWN. Oh, Harvest Brew I loved your spicy flavor, mouth feel and just about everything about you. I drank this tea more then I logged and it was often a go-to for my travel mug on the way to work. Harvest Brew WILL BE MISSED!

I can not wait to get my first handmade tea in the mail! Should be in about a week or so I think Oh how I wish I had a sneak peek at what it is! :)

I LOVE handmade tea. I am not a subscriber at this moment due to the fact that I am OVERWHELMED with tea but when I can bring more tea into my life rejoining is ON THE LIST!

I have had trouble with Pu’erh tea in the past. I WANT TO LIKE IT! However, no matter what I did it just did not seem like my thing. HOWEVER, I REALLY like this tea. (As you can see from my copious USE OF CAPITAL letters!) The earthy pu’erh tea in conjunction with the citrus flavors was REALLY great. Also, I am not a HUGE licorice fan but the lingering taste in the back of my mouth of licorice was actually a nice flavor-feeling element. I put this tea in the shopping list and will savor the rest of my sample.

I got this as a sample in a swap with Aimeepopovacki. Thanks Aimee for sharing!

I got this sample from Itachi. Thanks Itachi!

The oolong base in this gets a little lost. HOWEVER, the fruit flavors are wonderful. It tastes like a tropical cocktail! I LOVE this tea and put it on my shopping list.

hahaha i tried this one by mistake and ended up in the hospital because i had to stab myself with an epi pen due to the mango… BUT I LOVED IT!

SNOWSTORM SAMPLING DAY

I am going to spend today drinking as many different types of tea as possible. As I am at home with all my tea-making products and a proper kettle I don’t have to make a GIANT batch of one tea in a thermos to bring to work. I got this tea as a sample from Nicole over at the tea traders facebook group.

To me this was okay. I wouldn’t purchase and it was not bad but not spectacular. I think I am just not a cinnamon tea girl. THE DRY LEAF was SO PRETTY! The tea had a pretty shimmery look to it. As an aside, my husband really liked it.

Aimee Popovacki

this one is fantastic as a latte…. with some almond milk.. or just rgular milk… its different.
