I actually finished all I had of this. I went to order more and send some to my daughter (who loves spearmint) and the Nina’s US site was flipping gone! I sent Laurent a message on Facebook and no response. Oh well. So this brings my cupboard number down to half a billion or so. The cupboard here is woefully outdated and the thought of doing inventory gives me hives.

VariaTEA

Oh no! I hope they are still a thing because they used to be my tea stop when I was in Florida. I recall a while back getting a notification on fb that they changed their name so maybe they are just operating under a different company name?

It doesn’t look like they have a site for their new name (La Courtisane) but it looks like you can still order off Amazon? At least that’s what I noticed a few weeks ago.

I think AQ2T does maple really well (as in Syrupy Pumpkin Pancakes OMG), so I had to order this one. It’s a giant snuggie of yum. Super flavorful, maple and pumpkin. I don’t always like chai and I don’t really know why, but I am loving this one.

I was sold at “snuggie”. Sounds wonderful!

I had this again last night. 16 oz of it after 7:00, which means I was up all night peeing but it was so worth it!

Kristal

Ironically having a mug of tea before bed has been helping me get up at a decent time in the morning since I have to pee :P!

Fjellrev

Haha the same thing happened to me last night, but with ATR’s Nirvana. So worth it.

Om nom nom. This is yummy. Caramel/brown sugar over light peach notes. I hope this sticks around.

Fjellrev

You’re making a peach tea sound so appealing. And I’m normally not crazy over them. You’re good!

Lauren | A Quarter to Tea

I really like this one too, actually! My goal was to make a peach tea I liked because I typically can’t stand that candy/gummy peach flavor. But the really rich caramel notes temper this so well, I think. :) Glad you like it!

rosebudmelissa

I’ll have to check this out. I’ve always wanted to find a peach tea I could actually enjoy. I love real peaches and I actually like the peach flavor in candy, but for some reason I can’t stand it in tea.

That is a lovely tumbler! I don’t have to be creative lately but maybe I’ll think of an idea for your special tumbler teas.

This is totally on me. I should have known not to buy a tea with the word “smoky” in the name. The sweet potato got me though, and I ordered it. To be fair it’s not very smoky but I still taste it and it just isn’t my thing. The rest of this is going in Stephanie’s box. Someone else will be able to appreciate this more.

Emilie

I feel the opposite about this tea! The smoky catches my attention, but the sweet potato scares me away

Marzipan

I think I have emotional cooties about smoke, my ex was a smoker.

keychange

Hahaha I feel exactly the same as Emilie does re this tea!

Fjellrev

I’m the exact same when it comes to smoky notes. The slightest hint ruins it for me.

I hope this isn’t a temporary tea. I might have to cry.

Fjellrev

You Steepsterites are making it very difficult for me to resist making an order. ;)

Marzipan

It’s seriously lip smacking good.

Lauren | A Quarter to Tea

No worries! As long as there’s interest, anything not marked as a limited release is around for the long haul :)

Well this is delicious. I don’t always like cheesecake flavors in tea but this one is rocking my world right now. The chocolate isn’t slapping me in the face – which is a good thing. I just got a nice blended pumpkin cheesecake flavor with a hint of chocolate yum. I think I might be a fangirl.

Sil

nice!

WayGood Tea is a new company to me, and when given the chance, I was happy to review this tea for them. They are based in Seattle and the focus of the company is promoting wellness through healthy tea. The product line consists of four blends; one contains camellia sinensis and the other three are tisanes. I was allowed to choose which one I wanted to review, and since I quite like both Earl Grey and lavender, this one was a no-brainer for me.

Profile

Bio

Mom of two practically grown girls, extremely happily married to a man who is amused by my obsession with tea, and company owner who works from home. Life is good.

Likes/dislikes: I love black teas, especially strong/malty ones. I am ok with flavored teas if the base is strong. I like some whites. I really don’t like any tea that tastes “green” – if I wanted to drink something that tastes like green beans, I would cook some green beans. I am not big on green teas or genmaichas. I am learning to like puerhs.

If we are trading, I have a STRONG aversion to coconut, banana and licorice. I love citrus, vanilla and spice. Not a fan of florals.
