A rich, thick vanilla tea, almost Chai like, but not quite… Almost like a spiced vanilla pudding . It’s more of a full bodied vanilla then anything. Preferred it as it cooled over when it was piping hot. Some astringency in the base.

Flavors: Astringent, Custard, Thick, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Seriously, this stuff is like liquid, chocolate gold. It’s no hot chocolate replacement, although I do need to try it steeped in milk!

Found a Winter Collection box of Kusmi tea and had to grab it! This was the only herbal in there, and it was surprisingly delicious. Also, it put me to sleep on Christmas Eve, which is exactly what I needed!

Wowza. Now this is some amazing tea! It’s like drinking a rich thick tea caramel with a hint of chocolate. It’s nuanced, and beyond divine.

Hm. Not my favorite herbal tea,although I may have over sweetened it. The bitter orange peel is quite prominent, and perhaps just not to my liking. I want to say it’s like a dry orange juice that less sweet than any orange juice you’ve ever had. Yet there’s a sweetness to it… So hard to explain.

Flavors: Drying, Orange Zest, Tart

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 2 tsp 24 OZ / 709 ML

Grabbed a 100g bag of this from Harrods in London just because of the smell. It made me think of Victoria, BC in the spring when the city is pink with cherry blossoms. This tea smells like that: fresh, sweet cherry, and a touch floral. Drinking it isn’t as amazing sadly… There’s a sight bitter and dry aspect to the tea that tells me the base green isn’t great. I knew I shouldn’t go for a green, but the smell… Oh God the smell!

As I don’t have a variable kettle while traveling, I used boiling water cooled 17 minutes, and steeped for two minutes. Had to add a touch of sweetener to make the cherry flavor pop even a little bit.

Also, no ingredients listed, but was told in store (and they triple checked) that it’s only a cherry flavor used.

Flavors: Bitter, Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Drying, Hay

Bought in the UK but enjoying in France, I’d say this is my favorite green tea of all time. It’s light yet creamy, fluffy and caramely, I actually get the rhubarb in there as a slight tang, and even I want to say a baked crumble feel. It’s divine, more so with a touch of sweetener to bring out the flavours.

Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Rhubarb

Oh yes. Oh very yes. For those who loved a certain cacao tea that was more Mexican hot chocolate than cacao, this is your new replacement. It is mine! A mix between a Chai and cacao, with vanilla and barley thrown in… Delicious.

Sounds yummy, especially with the barley!

Totally! I burnt through a couple boxes of these when I lived in Europe. Kind of miss it.

Smells amazing, tastes quite lovely, although that syrup “flavoring” didn’t add anything that I noticed. Drying as the cup cooled. It’s good, but not in love.

Something made this bitter after I stepped it too long (the cinnamon, is that even possible?) but otherwise this is a lovely, rich tea, with only a hint of heat. A new favorite treat.

OMGsrsly

Not like Kapha Organic? :D

MissB

Nope, nothing anywhere near as spicy as that!

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in France, was in Ireland and England prior, next up Belgium) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time exploring, playing board games, reading, hiking, hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
