This one courtesy of the quiet life!!! (you should see the adorable little tins she put the samples in!!!)

This is delicious!!!! It tastes to me like cinnamony amaretto. I didn’t get a lot of ginger, coconut, or pepper and the rooibos was just playing backup for depth. I think it was the nicest caffeine free tea I’ve ever had!

Y’know, a lot of the blends look really good from Teavana, but I’ve heard that the sales associates are really pushy, and the one that is near me is in a mall. I just can’t abide by malls. I think I will have to order online so I can make my choices in a calm, cool and collected manner :)

I’ll have to take them with a quarter next to them so you can see the size. They are SO perfect for tea samples – no light or air to harm the tea and the perfect size!!

i highly recommend shopping online from teavana-and i am sure any of the tea bloggers would love you for your referral cuts too

I’m so glad you like it! :D And, despite having a Teavana so close to me too, I also bought mine online. I don’t like being pushed by sales people. :( (Though I hear they aren’t bad at the store near me. I just don’t want to risk it. :P) I’m pretty happy with most of what I got from there, though. :) (Plus, it ships from Connecticut within 24 hours, so it always arrives really quickly!)

And the tins are the 2oz size of “deep” tin at Specialty Bottle. :) I ♥ them too!

AmazonV- my pleasure! :)

You can’t see scale in the pic but as the quiet life told me, they hold about 4 tablespoons of tea. There are a lot of nice containers on this site!

ahem-look look! http://amazonv.blogspot.com/2010/02/specialty-bottle-supply-company-review.html – i went crazy and got multiples sizes the tall skinny tea tin is a very tight fight and a bit more narrow than teavana tins, the short squat ones works great for large items (like clementine pu-erhs) but needs to stack or i feel it’s wasting cabnet space, the little slat ones are just like ROT travelers tins and the short tall ones hold surprisingly a lot and i like them for swaps but am cheap and only bought a few and they are gone…

Ricky

Woah, those are a lot of tins. They even have clear lid ones!

JacquelineM

AmazonV – thanks for the review! It looks like they ship fast too :)

I was thinking of making my own tea infused vodka and I just love messing around with hand made toiletries and stuff so this is such a useful resource!!!

It took me a while to get mine, ’cuz they ship from Seattle, but the processing time was fast. :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
