Hot with milk. Perfect to curl up to with a book on a rainy day.

I know I had something written here, but I don’t remember what it was. Probably something about me being boring with my tea choices lately and needing new tea.

I probably had this cup hot with milk. I really like this tea that way. Especially if I drink it in the morning.

Dad keeps this tea in the house, so I decided to try it. I heated the water up in a smaller tea cup, so I think I got the water too hot. I also decided to add honey to it. Five drops of liquified honey.

This doesn’t really have a taste to it. It is really smooth though. Not what I was hoping for in this cup.

I forgot that I really shouldn’t let this get cold when I am drinking it. At least, not on an empty stomach. I had a really rough morning with my brother and the animals so this is the only thing I can get down right now. Tea saves my sanity.

Hot with just a touch of milk. Just enough to give it a creamier mouth feel, but not enough to start to cover up the green tea.

After reading some reviews of different chocolate teas, I decided that I would really like a cup of chocolate tea. There was only one problem: I didn’t have any chocolate tea. After some thinking, I came up with a compromise. Make a cup of this and add some chocolate milk to it.

It isn’t that bad either. I could have brewed the tea a little stronger for more of a tea taste, but the black tea is there. It lingers at the back of your throat at the last minute. The milk mellowed the tea out a lot. More so than plain milk. I’m not sure why.

If I was going to do this again, I think I would pick a stronger tea to do it with. Probably something like Irish Breakfast so the tea would stand out more. Or break down and get some chocolate tea and try it. This will do fine in a pinch though.

The last bag from the Charleston Tea Plantation. This is such a nice cup of tea. It tastes clean and fresh. It is a very plain tea, so I bet it would be good in almost any tea preparation. I would totally get some of this tea as a safe tea to carry around in areas where you can’t control the water temperature very well. Like a college where you have to pick between a communal tea kettle or the boiled water that is in the cafeteria.

Hot with milk. Surprisingly good with hot dogs.

I found the last two teabags from the Charleston Tea Plantation that my friend gave me about a year ago. I thought I had finished them already, so I was pleasantly surprised to find them.

At first, I didn’t think I would like the raspberry. Sure, I like how they taste and it smelled nice, but I remembered the Peach Tea from the plantation. I made it hot and plain. I was a little underwhelmed at first sip. It was light, but it didn’t taste bad. I could barely taste the fruit. It didn’t have the “wow, this is fruity” punch that I was expecting. By the time I reached the end of the cup, I had decided that this would be a good tea to have for tea parties with people you like. A social tea.

I think that the raspberry would have been brought out more with a little honey. I could see this being an interesting iced tea too. But, I don’t think I would drink it again.

Meg, appreciate your review of the Rockville Raspberry, we’d agree that the flavor profile could be heightened with the addition of a little sweetener such as honey…if you wish not to try this particular flavor again, please call us to perhaps try an alternate flavor at 1-888-244-3569

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
