Mmmmmmmmm perfect dessert tea to lull me to sleep tonight. The creaminess was perfection. I was not expecting that. The aroma was so tempting that my boyfriend looked at me with a smirk and next thing I know he is taking a sip! This must be dream. The first thing he says is “mmmm that’s creamy what is that?” Ha ha any tea that has him wanting more is definitely a success on my list. Thank you Janelle for this sample.

drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA
206 tasting notes

I had this going to bed last night. Yummmmmy! This was ij my HUGE swap from Janelle. You definitely can taste that there is almond extract. But I love that flavor for some reason. One of my favorite relaxing drinks to make is almond steamed milk. Its just so soothing. This would be great with a lot of foam and some steamed soy. Thank you for this sample. I have about enough for one cupfull left. Then I’m ordering it from Davids along with brazillionaire. :D

drank Jasmine Pearls by Custom
206 tasting notes

Mmmmmmmmmmm! I got jasmine pearls from Stephanie from an unknown source. I am a sucker for jasmine tea. This one was very light. But not bitter what so ever. The jasmine strength was perfect! Watching these little guys steep was so amazing. They were so pretty as they opened. Not only is this a tasty tea but an entertaining one too ha ha.
Thank you for this sample!

Stephanie

I don’t remember where I got those particular pearls, heh. Glad you enjoyed!

Hmmmmmm….too strong for me. Its an expertly crafted blend but just not for me. I could see myself cooking with this type of tea.
Thank you Stephanie for the sample.

OH MY GAWD!!! I love it! This was one of those that I just browsed by on the DavidsTea website, but after Stephanie sent me the cute little DAVIDsTEA samples that you get with orders, I am stocking up on it! I have been Sipping on this all day getting all the steepings I can out of this baby. This is a nice naturally sweet tea. The brazil nuts add a great nutty flavor. Overall it is a nice robust tea and I’m lovin it!
I enjoyed it with some crumpets with my aunts homemade peach preserves and cookie butter and pumpkin spice granola cereal that I picked up at trader joe’s.

Thank you Stephanie for this sample. I had this iced and its quite delicious. Its delicate… with a slight floral hint. The cherry note is quite pleasing. I like how simple this tea is yet still very impressive. Thank you for this little slice of bliss:)

This was another sample from a swap from the lovely Stephanie. This tea unfortunately was nothing but sweet sweet sweet that is all I could taste and I really am hoping it was something I did wrong and not the tea. Unfortunately I only had enough for one cup:’( Really sad. Hopefully I come across this little guy again and until then I will not rate this tea. Thank you Stephanie!

I tried this one again! Thank Goodness Stephanie sent me quite a bit which gave me room to experiment. I had this one today as a latte and it was fabulous! All the elements of a Cinnamon roll, especially the frosting, that might have to do with the fact that I used vanilla cream. Ha Ha. I am currently sipping on this one again as I go to bed but plain jane this time and I am still loving it. Love the cinnamony flavors and the creaminess. I wonder what this would taste like with American Tea Room Brioche blended in.. hmmmm… oh the possibilities. I will have to try that next:)

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec

I’m quivering with excitement about trying Brioche tomorrow!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Stephanie

drank SBT: Lime Cola by 52teas
206 tasting notes

I had this iced today. And Wow wow wow. I haven’t had soda in over 9 years and this reeks all the tastiness but leaves out all the terrible parts of cola. Yummy! It truly smells like cola, tastes like cola, it must be cola! Wrong! It’s cola TEA! Can you believe it? And I am a lover of lime so the subtle tart and sour from the lime pairs quite well. If you haven’t tried this… Well… You must!

Preparation
Iced

:D ooh sounds good
