My humans tried this awhile ago and find it lives up to its name. Even if it is a flavored tea! http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/12/review-joys-teaspoon-winter-wonderland_08.html

Had coconut flavored teas before? Set them all aside and try this one. Real coconut flakes. Some got caught in my spout. My humans had to push them out with a stick. Hee! http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/12/review-boston-tea-companys-coconut-joy.html

Another special tea from the Arya garden in the Darjeeling area of India. Thunderbolt Tea always carries only the best. They sell out fast. http://v.gd/tna8E2

Another great Ceylon tea, this one is from a local Indian market. My humans just love having such stores in the area. http://is.gd/fYNns

World Market used to have some nice teas in wonderful square tins. This was one of them: http://is.gd/fXeyr

Now, every time my humans come home from WM, they whine about the lack of loose leaf teas and the preponderance of flavored tea dust in bags. Happily, they don’t bring such things home and expect this little teapot to steep ’em.

My humans found that this tea tasted quite different form the description on the company’s site. This is the case with many teas. Didn’t matter. Still superb. Check out the photos and details:

So loving these wonderful teas from Thunderbolt Tea in their heat-sealed foil pouches with all the air sucked out! So fresh when my humans open them! This one is another hit with us and lives up to the Darjeeling name. Photos and details: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/11/review-thunderbolt-teas-2010-sample-2.html

Another version of this classic tea, and as splendid as others we’ve tried. The leaf pieces really expand and tend to tickle this little teapot’s innards! Photos and details: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/11/review-thepuriteacoms-ti-kuan-yin.html

Somehow, the blenders at Boston Tea Co. manage to keep that tea taste in there, despite all the stuff being mixed in. Still, not quite like getting those wonderful fruity flavors from the tea leaves. Cute photos of me (and the tea, of course!) and details: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/11/review-boston-tea-companys-ginger-peach.html

My humans are definitely nutty over the malty taste of Assams. This one is a good example. It’s more of an Orthodox variety, as opposed to a CTC variety. Check out the cute cozy that keeps me so warm while I steep! Photos and details:
