The dry leaf is one of the nicest smelling chamomile blends I’ve encountered. It has such a lovely floral fragrance, together with notes of apple and ginger, it makes for a very intriguing scent. Once brewed, it loses some of its original charm. It doesn’t smell off-putting or anything, but, it just doesn’t smell quite as delightful as it does dry.

This is pretty good. The chamomile is the strongest flavor, and it brews up a little murky, but not quite as dusty looking as some tea bags, so that is a good thing. The ginger is strong but not as strong as the chamomile, so this doesn’t come off as too spicy, just gently spiced. The apple is more of a back note – I can taste it, but it isn’t real prevalent.

It’s tasty.

This is a lovely green tea. You can read my full-length review of it here:

Enjoying my time brewing this in my gaiwan this evening, a little late, perhaps, for caffeine but my “clock” is a bit off because I was up so late last night.

This is a beautiful tea, and offers many flavorful infusions!

What an incredibly relaxing tea to sip this evening. The fruity notes in this tea are significant especially for a white tea. Hints of citrus and melon, as well as a distant spice note in the background.

A truly delicious tea!

drank Vanilla Chai by Indonique

I actually steeped this stovetop method this evening… something I almost never do because I hate the mess, but, for whatever reason, I wanted to make a mess today, so I did.

So GOOD. I don’t know if I prefer it stovetop or my tried and true method of steeping extra strong in water and then adding milk, both result in a delicious cuppa. This method also results in mess though… which is a big negative unless I am in one of these weird moods where I feel like making a mess… then, I guess it’s all good.

Anyways, I don’t know that I notice any significant difference between brewing this way and brewing the way I usually do, except that the flavor and texture is creamier. Thicker. But, other than that, both methods produce a very delicious tea. Rich black tea base, sweet vanilla and robust spices! YUM! And perfect on this chilly evening.

This is an excellent Irish Breakfast blend. The Assam REALLY pops in this blend – malty and rich! It has a full-flavored taste, I really like this. It definitely has the gusto to get you going!

I have to admit that while this is very good, I’m a little disappointed by it, only because the orange makes this more like a creamy orange spice blend rather than a vanilla cinnamon bun. It would be so much better without the orange.

Tasty and yet disappointing.

Boiling 8 min or more

This is an awesome twist on the traditional Earl Grey. I love the way the rose congou, lavender, rosemary and bergamot all work together. The flavor is so delightful. Sweet yet savory.

A very pleasing tea.

When it comes to rooibos and honeybush, it has been my experience that Organic just tastes better. I do not like the flavor of unflavored rooibos at all, however, organic unflavored rooibos I like just fine. And while I like the flavor of conventionally grown honeybush OK, I prefer it organic.

This is a very good quality honeybush as evidenced by the flavor: mild, honey sweetness, with light nutty and woody tones. Very pleasant. Smooth. A nice cup with which to relax!

I am having a glass of this with my dinner (ham and potato au gratin), and this one may just be my favorite yet. Either that or that I’m liking these the more I try them.

It looks more like fruit punch than green tea, and it actually tastes more like fruit punch than green tea. But that’s ok because that’s what I’ve come to expect from this company. It is designed more for the people who want to drink green tea (for the health benefits) but don’t really care for the taste, and I get that.

I like it because it has a pleasant flavor and I feel really energized after I drink it. And it tastes really good with dinner too!

PS: Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
