12 Tasting Notes
I am not a coffee drinker. At least not what coffee is to most people. Give me the sugary concoctions of chocolate cinammon milk frappe latte whatever. I’ve never tried Coffee Pur’eh or any ‘coffee’ teas. But the perfect match was on sale and I can’t resist enjoying a luxury at a bargain price.
Tiramisu tea brings delight to the palette as I did not taste the bitterness associated with coffee and I found it perfect to be a booster tea to get the cogs turning.
Books recommended for this tea are books that keep your mind churning:
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, any good puzzles should be consider a good accompaniment to this tea.
Definitely a tasting tea before it ends up in your tea spot of regulars.
I wish I had tasted this one in the store before I brought it home.No sense in wasting the tea leaves now. This tea can become a quick bitterness if one is not careful. Not my cup of tea, but like books, there are teas for everyone. If you are a green and bitter tea lover, I encourage a tasting.

Love at first taste. A refreshing tea that is an even more delightful iced tea. When I need a quick taste of something when I am hot from working, it will be this tea. That’s just how cool it is as an iced beverage. Forget soda, forget energy drinks, for everything you know except this tea.
Curious tidbit, every first sip I take of this tea reminds me of the color purple.

At first sip, this tea left a bittersweet impression. My first thoughts were of the morning, with feelings of grogginess overtaking everything including the ability to get out of the rustling sheets of your very comfy bed. Upon the second sip, I fell in love and woke up to the tea. Memories of the morning stillness overclouding my mind and the words of Phillip Pullman and his series are what I wanted.
Books recommended to go with this tea are: His Dark Materials Series by Philip Pullman, especially the Golden Compass.
Flavors: Apple, Apple Skins
An anytime tea
I enjoy the tea for its versatility. It’s not heavy nor it is too light. It’s just perfect for any day, any occasion.
One of those get up and go anywhere tea, just beckoning you to take it along on an adventure and explore something beautiful today, even if it just errands.

This tea reminds me of summer with its aroma. It reminds me almost of a sweet candy. Takes me back to the days where I lived in a city with the street vendors who sold mangoes on a stick, they would cut it right in front of you, shaping it like a lollipop and add chili powder at your request before sending you on your way. This tea is beautiful in that manner with the tasting of it sweet and even sweeter in it’s memories.
Books recommended to go with this tea are: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Marquez Garcia, Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel.
A beautiful smelling tea. Perfect for any time, and for a pickup. With a name like chocolate rocket and a bit of a stimulant added for a kick, this is one time that you can take on the go, but at the same time enjoy while socializing. Definitely smell the ‘chocolate’ and the almonds are a nice touch.
Books that will go well with this tea are:
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, Holes by Louis Sachar, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
This tea was light and beautiful. Like a hint of summer on a cold day. As for the taste aspect, I like that it rolled off my tongue and while the flavor was not as potent as I expected it, the overall impression I have from it is positive. Definitely a must have for those that like their tea not to have a so serious attitude. I just had a sampling of it.
Books that will go well with this tea are Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy M. Montgomery, Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit, and Shanghai Girls by Lisa See.
