This is a fantastic white tea. Sweet and creamy and smooth. One of the best White Peony teas I’ve ever had the opportunity to taste!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try!

I LOVE Bolivian Black teas. They have a flavor that is very similar to Dawn (from the Simple Leaf) to me… sweet, savory and very delicious. So when I got this tea from a recent package from TeaEqualsBliss, I was very happy!

The flavor is indeed sweet and savory, with hints of savory cocoa and a sweet caramel-y undertone. It is rich and soothing. Delicious. Something about this tea makes me want to just curl up with it and be alone! I love it!

Second infusion: not quite as dark but still very delicious. The flavor is a little thinner but I can still taste the wonderful caramel tones and chocolate notes. YUM!

I really am liking this!

The coconut flavor is strong, but the black tea flavor is stronger. It is very luxurious tasting – smooth and rich and creamy, but at the same time it is soft and light. That is to say, it doesn’t have a very heavy presence even though it is smooth and rich and creamy.

One of the better coconut black teas that I’ve tried!

I like this one. It is very refreshing and crisp. I like the aroma of the dry leaf, it just smells so clean and fresh.

This has a nice balance between green tea and mint.

drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas

finishing off the last of the sampler from my 12 teas of Christmas box. So yum!

This is the first tea that I’m brewing in my Libre Teas mug too! I feel like these mugs are perfect for things like Mate since mate doesn’t get bitter as it continues to steep.

Yummy, chocolate-y malty-ness!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Got to love the Libre! I have some of this on its way to me and I can’t wait to try it in mine.

The aroma of this tea is fantastic. One of the best orange spice teas that I think I’ve ever had the opportunity to smell! I almost want to set a bowl of this out in the living room so that the house smells like this! Orange-y, cinnamon-y and cloves! It smells divine!

It tastes good too! The orange and spices are strong but do not overwhelm the cup. The black tea is strong and delicious. The overall effect is very comforting which is nice after spending the afternoon at the mall.

Yummy!

Yum! So good. To make a good thing even better, I added a little bit of Dark Chocolate Breve Creme to this. Now, I have chocolate coconut cream pie in my teacup…

This was the 3rd Tea of Christmas … you can read my review here:

drank Out Of Your Gourd by Indie Tea

This is one really awesome blend!

A lot of different tastes in the cup, primarily I taste hints of citrus and licorice, but there is a nice smoky spiced undertone to it too. Very good! Not very much in the way of the chocolate flavor, but, the other flavors going on are delicious and intriguing. Spicy, but not too spicy, sweet… but not too sweet. Very well-balanced.

I really am liking what I’m seeing from this tea company so far. Cool packaging and interesting and very DIFFERENT blends.

Attempting to wake up… and hoping this tea will help me.

Bold and brisk. Nice. And most importantly right now since I’m cold – it’s nice and hot!

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.
