Thank you to KeenTeaThyme for this representation of Day 10 in our 12 Days of Christmas tea swap. It’s really tasty!

I like the combination of the cinnamon and the mint … the cinnamon is warm yet sweet, and the mints add a crisp, invigorating taste to the cup. I don’t taste a lot of the Guayusa here, the cinnamon, peppermint and spearmint seem to be overpowering it just a tad, but, it’s still really good … a very nice way to get motivated on such a chilly day (the kind of day that you’d rather just stay curled up under the covers … but I can’t because today is the day we are celebrating our holiday, so I have a bunch of stuff to get done for our feast)

Nicely done, KeenTeaThyme!

Glad you enjoyed it! I’ve gotten two coworkers hooked on it. We are guayusa fans for life. I love that it’s energizing without that black tea taste, and no jitters! :)

Anyhoo, hope you have a wonderful holiday! :)

Thanks … yes, that is what I like about guayusa as well, and it has a pleasing smooth flavor. I like Yerba Mate too, but sometimes it’s a tad too earthy for my taste. Guayusa is smoother.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
