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 was wondering why my English Breakfast has been tasting a little weak recently. It turns out that mom kept slipping in boxes of decaf on me. I think she might be worried that I’m drinking too much tea. I don’t have that much a day.

Anyway, hot with a drop of milk. Still yummy, just been a little blah.

Hot with a drop of Silk Vanilla Soy.

I have been drinking this fairly often because mom picked this box up for me the last time she went tea shopping. As a plain, hot cup it is pretty good. A little bland, but it is pretty good anyway. It mixes really well with other things.

Normally, I drink my green tea plain, but I have 40 bags to go through and there are only so many ways that you can drink a hot and plain cup without it getting boring. The Vanilla Silk does not overwhelm the cup. It makes it very creamy and gives it a hint of sweetness. Makes for a very nice after dinner cup.

This is my last cup of this tea. I have to admit that it has grown on me. I wish there was more of a vanilla flavor and some more spice, but it is a pretty good sweet tea. If I had it in the winter, it might beat out hot chocolate as my drink of choice because I do drink this one sweet.

We’re happy that you’ve enjoyed the Vanilla Chai…..and will certainly share your comments with our research & development team concerning your thoughts on boosting the vanilla flavor, with a little bit more spice.

When you need comfort, it is easy to turn to a faithful cup of tea. Hot with milk and a little on the strong side.

I’ve been drinking this tea down. It is a good afternoon tea and has replaced my Earl Grey love for now, but I don’t think I would get it again. I gave a cup to my brother and he liked it. I think the verdict on this one is once it is gone, it is gone.

I got this tea today when I was out shopping with mom. I wanted something different and the only chai tea I have ever had was the Oregon Trail mix. I made what they call the “quick version” and added sugar and milk.

It tastes good to me right now. I could have made it a bit stronger. I think it will taste better if I actually heated up water in the kettle instead of in the microwave. And possibly brewed it longer. I have a whole box to try, so I will experiment. Not rating it right now. I’ll figure out how I like it first, then rate.

Nothing tastes better at the end of the day than a reliable cup of tea with milk.

Hot with no milk.

Drinking this after getting back from being with my sick boyfriend. His fever broke so he should be fine. Now to see if I dodged the bullet as well.

Profile

Bio

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.
