Having a rare and lovely huge mug of this as I catch up on Being Human (the US version). So comforting this tea, especially as I try and wind down (really early!) for the night. Here’s to hoping I actually sleep a good five hours straight. ;)

2.5 tsp in 20 oz.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

A surprisingly creamy night tea, similar to Lemon Chiffon but with orange built in there. I remember loving this when I first found it, in an extremely generous tea exchange on RedditGifts a few years back. It’s actually better than I recollect!

1.5 tsp in 12 oz.

Flavors: Cream, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Overleaf this and prepare to die. Holy moly JustJames, now I know what you were referring to. Kept a tiny bit from OMGsrsly’s bag, understeeped, and yet… it’s all chili. Still delicious, and like drinking liquid fire.

Properly leafed, this really does taste like baked coconut. Lovely, yet there’s something that’s sitting off with me. I have to wonder what it is, because it’s enough for me to put it in the swap pile for someone else to love.

Hmmm… One I was looking at for if/when I made an order with them. Maybe I should reconsider it.

I throw the rest of what I have in your Root Beer – themed bag, if that works for you? Pass it along to someone else if it’s not your thing. :)

Tried it again today, this time double bagging it and steeping it less. Much better – it tastes like a chai, for starters – however now I’m missing any sense of coconut. It’s an okay blend, and I’m sure I’m cool with sipping it down, however I will refrain from purchasing more.

Gosh I love this tea. I wish I could pick out all the lovely flavors in it. Tulsi, definitely. Maybe something sweet and fruity, yet hard to place. A hint of licorice perhaps? Dunno. I just love it. A really unusual blend of flavors that I’m sipping way too fast.

Last time, I oversteeped this. This time, I only steeped it for two minutes, and it was still tasting astringent and icky. I ended up dumping it after a few sips.

Flavors: Vanilla

Profile

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and 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 (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

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 either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

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.
