I am finally getting around to trying this sample that Nicole was so kind to send me. I accidentally (kind of) fell asleep while I should’ve been studying earlier, so now am a bit groggy and need a tea to wake me up so I can get back to my stacks of homework. This tea has a nice, very light fruity scent. I added a little sweetener to this tea, which seems to help to bring out the faint fruity flavor. As soft as this tea’s flavor is, I don’t think that it would stand up very well to milk. The fruity flavor tastes mostly of mango and apricot to me. Overall, a pretty good cup of tea to wake up from a nap!

-Dry blend has tea leaves and a few twigs with small blue and yellow petals. Petals expand during steeping.
-Dry leaves smell lightly of sweet fruit. Tea liquor aroma is of mangoes.
-Tea liquor is a clear orange color.
-Warm fruity flavor with a somewhat malty undertone. Smooth, honey-like finish.
-Best with a little sweetener. Milk would overshadow delicate flavors.
-Good tea. Sweetener brings out banana flavor. Would be perfect as a fruity iced tea during the summer.

Ok, it’s driving me crazy. You changed your Steepster name at some point, right? What was it originally? Please PM me if your reasons for changing it were to remain anonymous!

Hi Kittenna! Yes, I did change my name from Miss SweeTea. This was my first venture into online communities (besides Facebook) and I didn’t know what to expect. Once I began to love Steepster I saw another user change her name and I decided to change mine to my real name. (Sometimes people would refer to me Miss SweeTea and I wouldn’t even realize it was me, ha!) Sorry for any confusion, no more name changes!

Kittenna

Oh, no worries at all!! I changed my name on here too, and I’m sure it threw people for a loop. I just could not for the life of me figure out who you “used to be”, haha. Thank you! :D

ashmanra

Oh, hi! I didn’t realize it was you! :)

Josie Jade

Hi Ashmanra! Hope you’re doing well! Did you see/try the Vanilla Gorilla from Tin Roof Teas? I may be making a trip to Raleigh soon :)

ashmanra

I haven’t been in a while but will be heading up there soon! We should try to meet sometime and go to Noodles and Company, then grab a cup of tea and hit Penzey’s. LOL! That is my usual routine. Oh, and going to the antique mall upstairs to gaze at the amazing Victorian carved dog bed.

Josie Jade

I would love that, let me know when you plan to go next. Oh, and gazing at antique carved dog beds is my idea of the perfect day. That little dog in my profile picture would so appreciate one of those. :)
