This was one of the K cup options at church and I wish I had made a coffee instead. Very disappointed on the flavor in this tea. Weak tea flavor but over powering cardamom/cinnamon flavor that was not pleasant. This was a bad choice for the end of a great tasting tea day :( This is why we need a Steepster app. I could have looked up the reviews before making my final decision :)
172 Tasting Notes
Went to a local restaurant for lunch today and ordered hot tea. They brought out a wooden box with many different bagged tea options. This is the one I chose. I like a good oolong. It is a woody oolong, but clean and fresh flavor. Slightly sweet on its own – no bitterness at all. I wasn’t able to find this company online, so I filled in the info from the package (which I had to take with me so I could log this ;) Found it interesting. So apparently it will make me healthy as well as beautiful and delay senility. BONUS!! Hope I don’t have any weird reactions to the tea :)
Here’s the interesting description:

Action: To improve your appearances, to make you healthy and beautiful and to delay senility.
Usage: 2 bags, twice a day to be taken after being infused in hot boiled water. Taken continually for a long time it will give you much comfort.
One word for this tea: AMAZING!! This tea is soooo yummy. I purchased it thanks to Azzrian’s review. So glad I did. Marshmallowy goodness. I was so happy that Della Terra restocked yesterday. Picked up 2oz of this and the Candy Cane! My bank account has really suffered this season, but somethings are worth it ;)
On a morning like this, I just wanted a good English Breakfast tea and Twinings is hitting the spot. A little milk, a little sugar, a little bit heavenly. Nice way to wake up :)
While at Walmart today, I picked up a bottle of this in the checkout line. Not a good decision. As I see in many of the other posts about it, it does have an off taste. I couldn’t stomach any more than 2 sips. I will not be picking up another one of these and hope this note will help you to not make the same mistake I did.
I received a sample of this with an order I placed. Since I don’t usually enjoy peppermint, I would never have chosen it myself. With that said, I am pleasantly surprised at this delicious winter treat. The peppermint flavor is subtle, blended deliciously with cocoa. This is so yummy, it may replace hot cocoa for me. Need a little peppermint pick-me-up this morning.
This is my very first Rooibos tea. I was surprised how much I liked it. I followed the directions for brewing on rooibostea.com. Also followed the suggestion of putting milk and honey in it. YUMMO! Of course I had to go buy several other flavors of this delicious caffeine-free tea. I’ve been very impressed with the teas I’ve had from Carytown Teas.
Tomorrow, I’m heading to the Dragonfly Artisan Tea Cottage in Sylvania, Ohio for lunch tomorrow. Going to check out their selection. It’s my 2011 Christmas gift from a friend. We’re finally making time to do it. Can’t wait!
2nd cup of this tea and still struggling to find the chocolate or the coconut. This tastes very similar to the almond teas I’ve tried before. While it’s a good flavored almond tea, I was looking forward to the blend of coconut and chocolate with it. I enjoy it so I’ll rate it well, but I’m a bit disappointed.
Drank so much tea yesterday, but decided I’ll just have to try them all again to post tasting notes :) Had this for a second time this morning. Really enjoy the nutty flavor. Great with a little sugar and milk (I’m obviously not a purist). Bonus: the Doctor Who reference is awesome. Weeping Angels are the scariest of the monsters, but they make a delicious tea :)
My sis picked this up for me. At first smell, I was disappointed. Thought it smelled much like Lipton. The taste surprised me. It is a nice smooth black that has a bit of sweetness to it. The more I try it the more I love it.
Decided to go with an old standby this morning. Gotta love an Earl Grey.
Time for a delicious afternoon pick-me-up. I really need to pick up some more oolongs.
Picked this up at the local tea shop. This is a delightful fruity tea. At first sip, I tasted the guava, but then I got a hint of coconut. I’m sure the other flavors are in there too, but I’m having trouble finding them. I may not have the best palate for them. I like that it’s a blend of green and black teas – might be the only way for me to enjoy a green. A great way to start a Tuesday!
A wonderful night for a good Irish blend, Christmas music, and house cleaning.
Thought this might be a good tea to start my day with today on this chilly November morning. It smells and tastes exactly like the name suggests – apple dumplings fresh out of the oven. I’m not much of a green tea drinker, but this was pretty good.
As far as Irish breakfast teas go, this was pretty mild. I probably should give it another chance since I was drinking it at 2 am during a youth group lock-in.
This is a delicious inexpensive tea. It makes a wonderful tea latte. The tea is not as strong as I like, but the smooth caramel flavor was yummy!
This tea was enjoyable. Much like a chocolate orange cookie. A nice dessert kind of tea for times when you want something sweet but not the calories.
Still not a fan. The flavor just doesn’t work for me. Passing this one on to someone else.
The taste of this tea is more of the frosting on a carrot cake. I’d say a cream cheese frosting with a bit of spice. I would have preferred more of a spicy carrot cake flavor. I never have cared for cream cheese frosting. I’ll be passing this one on to a friend.
Making way through the tea I purchased yesterday. This was my choice this morning. However, I forgot that the saleswoman said she liked it iced. It definitely isn’t good hot. Putting it in the fridge for lunch. Another note later.
This website is addictive. It makes me crave tea all day long (or maybe I do anyways). I just had to try something new today and ran to the All About Health Store in Wauseon to choose something. This is definitely a great decision. Yum! This may be my first Oolong and it will keep me trying more. Nice and smooth with a delicious hint of fresh peach.
I have to change my original rating. The more I sipped this tea the less I liked it. While looking at the teas that Walmart carries, my eyes were drawn to this tea. Thought I’d give it a shot. You win some; you lose some. This was a loss.
When my parents asked what I wanted from Ireland, I asked that they bring me back some tea. This is what they brought and I truly enjoy it. One of my favorite loose leaf teas from the Tea Spot in Defiance is the Irish Breakfast and this is very similar. Mom says she can taste the peat in the tea, so it truly tastes like the country it comes from.
