Yum! Almonds and cinnamon.

This is nice and comforting on this cold and misty day.

drank Rose Marzipan by Sands Of Thyme

Finishing off the last of this sample that was sent to me with my order. I really like this blend.

Today I am getting more of the cardamom flavor, and I am getting a cinnamon note as well, although the ingredients do not list cinnamon as an ingredient.

This is yum!

Any chance that you know if this is similar to the discontinued Teavana Rose Marzipan?

LiberTEAS

I cannot remember if I’ve had the Rose Marzipan from Teavana. Based on the description of it here on Steepster, I would say no, this one is not the same.

TeaEqualsBliss

No…this isn’t the same…the main difference is that Teavana’s has those crystallized sugar cubes…this one doesn’t…but it’s still lovely! :) Minus the sugar that is…

TeaEqualsBliss

Actually…it’s the “sweet candied violet pieces” I was thinking of – see above…

Auggy

Ah yes, I forgot about the violet. Darn!

drank Shizuoka Black Tea by Den's Tea

This is awesome!

I do hope that Den’s will consider offering this tea because it is really outstanding.

The flavor is rich with notes of fruit and malt. There is a creamy sweetness to it as well. It has an appealing sweetness to it – not overly sweet, but it is so delicious that it keeps me sipping to experience the sweetness.

I do like this!!!

Delicious!

I agree, I was thinking too that if Den’s starts offering it eventually, I would have to be a black tea drinker every now and then. :-)

drank Fleur de Grey by Mad Pots of Tea

This is really nice. I love the lavender in this cup, it not only offers such a pleasing scent but the flavor of the lavender is strong as it intermingles with the bergamot. I like the combination of flavors here very much.

I just wrote a review about this one for the Tea Review Blog – it should publish soon!

Oh this is good! Rich and smooth and robust!

It has a really pleasant sweetness to it and a nice chewiness. Excellent!

2nd infusion: it is a little sweeter than the first infusion. It has a burnt-sugar caramel kind of taste to it that is quite delightful!

Yum! This morning I decided to add a splash of milk to it and make it a latte… I like it fine like this, but, I think it’s better without the milk.

Here’s my full-length review on this tea:

drank Honey & Pear by Lupicia

Oh this is YUM! Like YUMMMMMMM!

The pear flavor is not particularly strong here, but, I don’t think I’d want it to be more pronounced, because as it is, it is just perfect. The toasty notes of the Houjicha are the strongest flavor of the cup, and I can taste lovely pear and honey flavors coming through.

So very nice. Yummy!!!

drank Silk Oolong by Tea Forte

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

This is an excellent Oolong, but I can’t help but think it would be even better if it were not in the pyramid. The leaves just don’t have much room to expand in there!

It has a very pleasant, buttery/creamy taste to it. Smooth. Yummy!

I adore TeaForte’s pyramids. I keep telling myself not to, but they’re soooo pretty.

Good to know about the oolong.

Why dont you just cut the tea bag open and brew it loose leaf?

Yummy! I’m pretty sure that this is Almond Cookie from SpecialTeas, but I don’t know for sure. It tastes good though!

I really love the aroma of this tea. The combination of the rose and the cranberry is enchanting!

Bio

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.
