I had this a couple of days ago for lunch and it makes me so sad that I only have two bags of it left. It tasted so good. It wasn’t sugary sweet which was fantastic but it had enough flavor to compliment my meal.

I just need to start making myself hot tea again instead of going with the big pre-prepared sweet tea that my school has.

I was browsing my teacher’s tea basket and found this instead of the tea I was looking for. So I decided to pick it up and make it for dinner.

I wasn’t sure how to make it so I just dumped it into a mug of hot water and stirred in the powder until it was dissolved. Because I wanted a cooler drink with my meal, I then dumped the mixture into a 16 oz glass filled 1/4th with milk.

It was really interesting. The milk made it very creamy. I thought it tasted like a pumpkin pie. It was good. I would probably have it again but not very often. It was almost too sweet for my taste.

I got excited when I saw this sitting in my teacher’s tea basket. She was excited that I wanted to try it. So, after several attempts of taking a drink (and burning myself) I finally got a taste.

First, it doesn’t really taste like much. It tastes a little peppery to me. Not bad but not something that I would drink all the time.

Second, this tea smells like bacon. I swear it does. One of my classmates sat down from me and asked where the bacon was so I wasn’t the only one.

Overall, it isn’t something I would drink all of the time but it was interesting to try.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

This is my mom’s favorite tea and I was happy to see it in my school’s cafeteria. I remember trying it before when I was little and hating it because it wasn’t sweet enough. So, I decided to try it again.

Now, my mom doesn’t really like gingerbread but this is what the tea reminded me of. Fresh baked gingerbread. It wasn’t bad, and I actually drank it a few times. I actually like it best when I brew it together with Twining’s English Breakfast.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

Well, it has been a long time since I have written a note. My English teacher loves tea and she keeps a very well stocked basket of teas. I found this review on an index card with my notes with a note on it to put on here after class. Well, that didn’t work but I remember writing the note! Here is what it said:

faint carmelly taste
probably needs sugar to bring out more of the sweetness
drank hot
would make a better sweet tea, not desert tea

I remember not being very impressed with it but I may take a bag to try it out as a sweet tea sometime during the weekend. My teacher keeps her room open and urges us to come and relax in the room. And I have two reading days coming up so I will probably be making this tea again to try as a sweet tea. As much as I love the school’s normal sweet tea, I need more variety.

drank Earl Grey by The Tea Nation

So, I’m finally getting around to writing about this tea. I find it a very light Earl Grey but I like it a lot better than Stash’s Earl. It is very nice to drink before bed and at any time of the day really. I bet this would taste a lot better if I didn’t have to estimate steeping time but I have been rushing at college recently. Maybe next time I’ll be able to slow down and actually enjoy a cup of tea.

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Yummy. After putting up with a no-name tea with coffee creamer at work, this is fantastic with a little bit of milk. It is a bit of a balance to find because if I put too much milk in it then I dilute the flavor but I find the flavor to be lacking with no milk in it at all.

Don’t remember how long I prepared it but I do remember that it tastes really good with the leftover milk from my honey nut cheerio bowl.

I figured out how I like drinking this.

Two teabags for about 4-6 minutes, a half a mug of water, and fill the rest with milk. It isn’t my favorite tea so far but I have apparently been on a kick because it is now all gone.

This is quickly becoming my standard cuppa. Hot water, steep for 4 mins (mostly), add a splash of milk, and enjoy. : D

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.
