Drinking this iced. Tastes just like it’s named. Light, naturally sweet, delicious. The strawberry and lemon perfectly balance eachother. Can’t wait to try it hot.

Brewed for 10 minutes.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

One of the few teas I’ve tried iced before I’ve had it hot.

Absolutely delicious! The chili is not terribly spicy; rather, it gives the tea an almost effervescent quality. Fruity, but not overpowering; you can still taste the raw rooibos underneath.

Brewed for 10 minutes.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

drank Apple Lemon Pomegranate by Teavana

When it first hits your tongue, it tastes just like an apple. Which is wonderful, but then the cardamom taste comes out. Have decided that I really, really don’t like cardamom in my teas. Finishes rather lemony, but the after-taste is straight cardamom for me. It’s not bad enough for me to throw out the pot, but I won’t be purchasing this again.

drank Japanese Green Tea by Khai Sinn Tea

This was given to me as a gift from a friend who has friends working in Japan. He asked them to send him tea to give to me. And so they did!

It’s green tea in a bag. Delicate, not grassy at all, which is nice. It’s not bad, but nothing to get excited about. Just your every day, plain green tea. Will probably take to work to share with a coworker who only likes plain green tea.

I’ve never been a fan of coconut. It’s more the texture than the taste, so when I saw this tea and its lovely packaging, I decided to try it.

Each pyramid bag comes wrapped in its own foil package. When opened, the smell instantly hits you…thick, rich, chocolate-y. Not overpowering, mind, but noticeable. Your first cup will have you literally standing over the brew, watching the timer count down until it’s ready.

I brew this for 5 minutes, sometimes with boiling water, others with cooler water. When brewed with boiling water, it creates a thick, deep-bodied tea that (to me) has little coconut taste. When brewed with cooler water, the cup is rather delicate, with the coconut predominant and lingering. Both are wonderful.

I was lucky enough to visit the Charleston Tea Plantation this past March. It was a wonderful experience that every tea lover should have.

Rockville Raspberry has a very delicate raspberry taste. You can tell that flavoring is used rather than actual raspberry bits, but it is a more natural flavoring rather than the candy-like flavorings I’ve had in other teas.

I can definitely taste a difference between the Charleston Teas and teas grown elsewhere in the world. One sip from any of their teas and I’m transported back to the plantation, where I sat and drank that first cup whilst gazing at the tea plants.

Purchased as part of a sampler pack. Brewed for 10 minutes, as I like my herbal teas strong. This tea is indeed very cherry, but I can taste the chicory. Can’t decide if it’s a good thing yet or not. I’m not a big fan of sweet cherries, and this is definitely sweet.

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
