i thought i was running late this morning so i wasn’t able to make tea for myself. so i stopped at a Dunkin Donuts drive through and knew i didn’t want coffee so i decided to try their tea for the first time…its a plain English breakfast blend there really isn’t anything special about this. will i buy it again? probably, on another rush around morning. will i regret buying it? yeah probably, just like i did this morning. it tasted like tea and was exactly what i needed right then and there so it did the job, but it left me wanting my loose leafs at home.
84 Tasting Notes
i just had to make a cup :) its been calling to me ever scene my last post about it.
it is a very smooth and fruity tea. i would love to try this iced but i have noticed my mug is now empty ;) maybe with a second infusion? it is defiantly not an every day cup in my book, but for someone who is bonkers for apricots it may be. i only wish it tasted more like a flavored black and not an herbal.
over steeped this :( i can finally taste the pepperyness of this now though. i think i like it stronger. i was looking for a cup of something boring and un flavored, but i didnt get it lol. this tea is always interesting when i have it. it has subtle differences each time and i look forword to the next new thing that this tea pops up for me :)
TeaEqualsBliss reminded me that i have this :p
i like all the colors in the tea. and does it ever smell like apricots! its very tasty. it is a very soothing flavor, with no bitter notes. ah Disney you never seem to fail me (unless you count fox and the hound 2, and the lion king 1 1/2)

i think what makes this tea good is the stronger strawberry flavor and the more subtle chocolate flavor. i had most of a cup of this at work earlier today (lost the last 2 sips as i dropped dog food into it) its defiantly something i can see myself coming back to but personally i dont think id purchase it. it isnt significant enough for me to purchase even the 4oz tin. the strawberry alone is amazing, and chocolate alone is gross so im glad they found a way to make it work out nicely.
the scent of this tea is stronger on the chocolate than the flavor.
found this little bag sitting in our work tea bag stash, and because my sister is bonkers for it i decided to finally try it. it starts off bitter but finishes nice and sweet, i can see myself stealing a bag or two from her when i visit but other than that i dont think id buy it for myself. not to be a tea snob but i am a bit turned off by it because it is bagged. i dont really get the feel of it being holiday inspired, to me it tastes like an everyday tea but i feel that it may be because i have an uneducated pallet.
ok well first the leaves smell like lemon and coconut…i dont like coconut. when its brewed it is a very pretty light amber color…but mine was a bit foggy…may have been my lighting in the kitchen though, it is a junky light i had on. the tea smells like the leaves…still dont like it. so i tasted it plain….still dont like it. i added sugar and it’s now drinkable when its in my mouth i cant taste the coconut so it isnt so bad i can first taste the lemony chai which isnt so bad, but the after flavor left in my mouth is coconut…i will be finishing this cup and hopefully sending this one out to another person who enjoys this.
i LOVE this, maybe too much :p i got distracted and this cooled down ALOT as in its now cold. its still delicious! the color is such a nice pale golden brown and smells like dried blueberries…more please!
ive never tried a “run of the mill” green tea before this is all i have to go off on. normally im not a green tea drinker, but i enjoy this. i think its the spices in it that make me like it because they do stand out to me. its a very light tea, i prefer mine stronger so maybe next time ill go for a longer steep time. i am enjoying this as i do my chemistry lab report (yuck)
the color is a pale greeny color that i find very pleasing to the eyes and the smell is wonderful, again i think it’s the spices. ive got to say this was a good purchase on my part. hopefully steepster can help me open up to more green teas :)
i love this tea! its just so relaxing and makes me feel like im drinking candy :) almost like a guilty pleasure. i tried it re-steeped…well it isnt bad, just not strong enough for me, it reminds me of watered down strawberry bath water, i drank it…i just dont plan on doing it again.
i over steeped this about 2 days ago and wow did i regret that! this is a very touchy tea 5 min steeping not a second longer or it will taste like your drinking bitter apple spray (its a training aid for pets you spray things you dont want them chewing on…unfortunately ive sprayed it in my face and know what it tastes like) but if you get it right WOW. this is a tea i keep coming back to over and over again!
time to get the travel mug set up and get ready for work!
this has a very delicate flavor, its sweet and light. the color was much lighter than i expected. it has a somewhat earthy taste that i like. wated to try something un-flavored and found this tin in the back so decided to give it a go! im glad i did. its a great way to start my night of studying :)
very nice, im drinking it now :) it has a nice flavor. not as strong as i would like, maybe i could steep it longer but it is a very nice cup of tea! i added sugar to it (like i do with all my teas) i will deffinatly be making more of this. ill try re-steeping it if im in the mood for another cup once this is gone :) it has a good leafy after taste and no bitterness at all.

this smells and tastes amazing! i bought the large tin.
you gotta really like cherry for this…and i do :D its high on my list of flavored teas. it is a bit tart but with a touch of sugar you can mellow it out some.
delicious! i prefer my tea sweetened but this i could drink as is!
this one is fun. i got it in a sampler package. this was the 1 i was more hesitant to try but im glad i did. its an excellent summery tea
this had a very mild flavor, it was very nice and refreshing, and who doesn’t love blueberry!?!? :) i usually will have this ice because it is so light. i may just be more a fan of black teas.
i wanted to like this! im normally a pumpkin fiend! but this….just didnt cut it. the spice flavors were very nice but i didnt get any pumpkin out of it. i added milk…still nothing. im glad i got a sample tin. i usually pass this one on for a nice cup of gingerbread instead
it tastes like i was drinking dirt i steeped it for 5 mins, then tried 3, then tried 2, it just didnt work for me! my Fiancee loves it so he can have it all he wants. id rather have some Irish breakfast.
a nice mild flavor with just enough smokiness :) something id recommend to people who prefer a less sweet tea and like their green teas
i like this alot, i dislike the chocolate alone but paired with strawberry its great. i tried this from a friend of mine who has the large 16oz bag so i havent tried it iced.
