This tea has to be the most beautiful tea I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. On top of the aesthetic appeal of it, the taste is delicately floral and fruity. Perfectly blended. I think it would be wonderful iced too.
If I’m ever blessed to marry, I’ll want to have this as a favor on the tables.

Loving genmaicha, so I thought I’d grab this while English Tea Store was having free shipping. So glad I did. This is the 3rd genmaicha I’ve tried since discovering it at an Asian restaurant. It’s definitely my favorite so far. Now I just wish I had some spicy Korean pork to go with it.
Stuart Mackenzie: Well, it’s a well known fact, Sonny Jim, that there’s a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows.
Tony Giardino: So who’s in this Pentavirate?
Stuart Mackenzie: The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee beady eyes, and that smug look on his face. “Oh, you’re gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!”
Charlie Mackenzie: Dad, how can you hate “The Colonel”?
Stuart Mackenzie: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly, smartass!
I can’t drink this tea without quoting So I Married An Axe Murderer. Caramel & Toffee & Pu-erh, does it get any better?? This tea is so rich and delicious and heavenly. I first found this at Elaine’s Tea Shoppe in Toledo, but this I picked up online with a coupon :)
I’m not kidding, that boy’s head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts! Now that was offside, wasn’t it? He’ll be crying himself to sleep tonight, on his huge pillow.
Rethinking my rating on this after my experience today. This was so bitter that it was undrinkable. I’m going to try steeping at a shorter time the next time I make it with a lower temp. Going to take away my rating for now until I make a final decision about it.
Yogic makes an excellent chai. I love that cardamom is the dominant flavor. It’s definitely a top spice for me. I love it in cookies and rice pudding and now chai :)
Catching up on Tivo tonight. I think Captain Hook is a nice addition to the Once Upon a Time cast. He’s beautiful. Also crazy excited to see Ethan Embry will be on the show :) Love that guy!
This has been in my cupboard for quite a while and thought it was time to try it. I think it is the first herbal tea I’ve had, so I don’t have much to compare it to. I bought it because it had promises of floral notes. The only notes I’m tasting are citrus and chamomile. It’s a mild flavor and kind of bores me. I think I’ll pass this on to my friend Kim :)
After sipping down many of my opened samples this weekend, I thought I deserved to open a new one :) Can you go wrong with oolong?!? I have yet to taste one that I didn’t care for.
This reminds me of a milder, smoother, and almost buttery Irish or English breakfast. My tea horizons are expanding thanks to Steepster.
Update: Second steep brought out some fruity notes. Interesting :)
Sipdown :( Super sad face here. This tea was absolutely delicious and I’m sad to see it go. Even more sad that it’s been out of stock at Boston Tea for a couple of months. I hope they restock sometime.
I did find the Bentley’s bagged version of this. It’s just not as good. It will have to do from now on.
I probably should have chosen my Scottish Toffee Pu-erh to complement my watching of Monarch of the Glen, but I wanted to finish up this last sample of the day :) I love this show & this tea!
Sipdown Sunday in effect y’all!
I have 3 more samples with just a couple cups worth of tea left. This is a favorite and a possible purchase :) It’s buttery and perfectly coconut-y. YUM!
Christmas decorations came down today. It’s always sad to see them go. If I had it my way, they’d be up all year. But honestly, I don’t want to have to dust them all.
Morning Light for this Sunday morning. I love how convenient tea bags are and this is an excellent sachet tea bag. Makes it easy for me to enjoy tea at church. Sad to see this sample gone. Thank you again, LiberTEAS for sharing.
Saturday Sample Sipdown is over. Hitting the good bedtime teas now :)
I love this tea. Happiness in a cup.
“You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy tea and that’s kind of the same thing.”
Conclusion on this tea for me: too green. Hi Ho! Kermit the Frog here!
Enjoying my last cup of this beautiful tea. It’s so light and floral. Unlike the movie I’m watching – Immortals. Sheesh. I’ve not watched a movie with this much gore in a long time. People literally smashing other people to bits. I guess the one thing that goes with this tea is the beauty that is Henry Cavill.
It’s not living as such that’s important, Theseus. It’s living rightly.
Sad to see this one go. So yummy!
I think you’re sexier than socks on a rooster.

The more teas I try, they more discerning I am about flavors I like. This one is a bit of a let down. It probably would be great as a tea latte with milk and sugar, but by itself, it falls flat.
My Den’s Tea green tea sampler arrived yesterday!! This is the first tea I’ve tried. I chose it to start because I love genmaicha.
It’s pretty good. Not as toasty as I was hoping and definitely more green tea flavor than the other 2 genmaichas I’ve tried. I’m going to brew another pot and see how it goes. I think I would prefer the regular genmaicha without the matcha. Overall, this is a good tea, but not my fav.
This is an amazing malty and rich black tea. I love how smooth it is. It’s also very convenient because it’s in a sachet. I took it to my small group gathering this evening and steeped it 3 times. All three were absolutely delicious. Gonna try for a 4th in the morning :) Thank you so much for sharing this LiberTEAS!
101, here we come :)
This tea is excellent and made up for the dud of a tea I had made before it. Speaking of which, anyone want 2 or so ounces of Buckingham Palace Garden Party?? It may be the first tea that I dump in a trashcan.
Back to this wonderful oolong. This is an emergency purse tea that I carry just in case I need a tea while I’m out. YUM!
