While looking through my samples this morning, I decided to blend a couple. I wanted a chocolate-y coconut-y blend. I took my Coconut Oolong from Zen Tea and blended it with Teajo’s Dark Chocolate Dream. If I blend these two in the future I will use a bit more Dark Chocolate Dream. It is a nice smooth cup of coconut tea with just the lightest hint of dark chocolate :) Dessert for breakfast. YUM!

drank Jasmine White Tea Classic by Shang Tea
205 tasting notes

FINALLY a good tea for the evening. After 2 bad choices, I decided to go back and try this one again. I followed Nicole and Shang Tea’s advice and steeped for 1 minute. It made a huge difference. I love how delicate the flavors are in white teas. This one is smooth and light. Floral teas like this are soooo yummy! I could see this being a staple on my shelf :)

I’m weeding out my tea right now and trying to drink my way through my samples and choose the favorites that I want to keep as a staple tea. I decided to go for a sample Nicole sent me. I made a pot of this tea and wanted to like it. How could a black tea with coconut go wrong? There was something off with the flavor and I couldn’t stomach it.

drank Rainforest Maté by Mighty Leaf Tea
205 tasting notes

This is my first maté tea. One of my good friends gave me a couple bags of it. I want to like it. At first taste I enjoy it, but the after taste has a fruity-minty flavor. As a person who doesn’t care for fruity teas, this is quite unpleasant. If you like minty fruit, this is a tea for you.

drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea
205 tasting notes

This was my morning cuppa today and it was a toffee dream. The white tea and toffee flavor blend smoothly to make an almost creamy decadent treat.

Thank you, Zen Tea for this generous sample. I wanted to order more during the sale, but it appears to be out of stock :(

This was the free tasting tea at my local tea shop. It was delightful. I almost bought some, but I have a bag of Della Terra Candy Cane coming to me at Christmas. I find that I really do enjoy peppermint in my tea.

drank Earl Grey by All About Health Store

This is the tea of my childhood. My mother has always loved Earl Grey and Lady Grey tea. It’s my comfort tea. A little milk & sugar makes it even more enjoyable. Bumping up my rating because I love this tea :)

Em, Earl Grey is also a childhood memory of mine, that’s probably why I always keep some around… it is the comfort tea by exellence, nothing complicated, just good tea!

Enjoying a cup of Eight Candles in honor of first night of the Festival of Lights. A divine way to celebrate :)

It’s thanks to you that I am obsessed with this tea :) Your review sold me. I hope you find it!

reviewed IKEA HÄLSA Steel vacuum flask by IKEA
205 tasting notes

Just picked one of these up at IKEA yesterday. I LOVE it! I boiled water and poured it in to see how long it would retain heat. It’s been over 12 hours and the water is still hot enough to burn you. How can you beat $6.99? I look forward to taking extra tea to work and enjoying several hot cups!

Nicole

That sounds like something that needs to go on a Christmas list… Oh, Santa…

Em

:) If only I was thinking, it could have been in your Christmas box. Bonus to how good it works is the fact that it’s cute :) Do you live near an IKEA?

Nicole

No, I’d have to order it. Not a big deal, though, for something that appears to work so well. :)

Nicole

Dang. Not available to buy online. That’s okay. I know someone in Dallas who wants to know what I want for Christmas and there is a store there.

Found this in my parents cupboard this morning and thought it smelled amazing. I didn’t follow the directions on the can. I made it the way I typically make chai. Added a bit of milk and sugar and it is wonderfully spicy and delightful. Already looking forward to my second cup.
