I left this to steep while putting away dishes, and stopped to wonder who brought me a slice of carrot cake. It smells that good, even the cream cheese frosting is there. The spices and flavour are really good too.
Not as strong (maybe a longer steep next time), but that is a carrot cake in my tea mug, and it is fabulous.

It’s Autumn next week. Yay! So I decided to have more of this (it is part of the Harvest Collection).

I’m drinking this while watching an episode of Star Trek- The Next Generation. Somehow, I don’t taste much pumpkin anymore. It tastes like spiced chocolate pie with maybe a pumpkin cookie crust. So I need a Star Trek uniform and replicator rations for a pie.

Star Trek brunch. This tea smells really good. Mostly like spices, but some like vanilla. It makes for a creamy vanilla chai.
Don’t really taste any vanilla beans or cheesecake.

I was making brunch and Star Trek was on. Since it’s Picard, I should be drinking earl grey.

This smells very citrusy dry. Brewed- I smell mint. It tastes very herbal. The citrus is a little strong.

Would probably be better cold.

Well, this does smell better brewed. It’s fruity, with lemon grass. The flavour does so remind me of yogurt.

This smells of berries, and citrus. Oh, there’s rum? The rum isn’t gone, it’s in my tea. I don’t usually have my cocktails this warm, but this is good. There is a nice daquiri flavour, and I like the strawbeery.

You have to try that iced as well, it’s pretty good. :) Glad you’re enjoying it.

I got this because it smelled really nice in the store. This tastes like those mint crisp chocolate bars. It’s creamy chocolate with hints of mint.

It’s banana fruit salad. Well, it tea form. I’m not really used to banana teas. This is fruit, and good. (Maybe it should be iced?)

This smells go good. I do very much like lemon-lime teas. It’s similar to another citrus rooibos tea I really like, but more cheesecakey.

I like apricot, and this one smells nice. I decided to try it as a cold- brew. It has a light, creamy fruit flavour. Most refreshing.

Preparation
Iced
