Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box #5
Hmmmm… hot I was not a fan of this at all…. it tasted like bitter black plain tea. Weirdly enough as it cooled the flavored appeared. I just got a creamy flavor and a tiny tiny hint of coconut. Many 52 teas I have to experiment with a lot to get the perfectcup. :/

I saw this at world market last week, and when i saw it in thr box i knew i had to try it. This tea will definitely warm you up. The spices linger in your throat and on your tongue. After adding cream it brought the coconut out. While I did enjoy it, not one of my favorite coconut teas and will not be purchasing it after all :)

I’ve only ever had this as bagged tea. And I love it so much more loose! You can smell the bergamot upon steeping it. The taste is very comforting. Fruity yet creamy. I get notes of blackberry and vanilla. You can also get the caramel flavors near the end of the sip I may have to keep some of this behind with me:)

Mmmmmmmm this reminds me so much of the Coconut Pouchong Stephanie sent me from Golden moon. Sooooo smooth. Soooo creamy. I am really enjoying this. The coconut is just right. I will not be keeping any unfortunately because there isn’t much left, and I will be sending this one on its way.

Well here goes my journey with this box. I love this one! Its literally mexican hot chocolate but tea version. The smell is so delicious you can taste it through smelling it! The spices and creaminess from the chocolate was superb. I added milk, tiny bit sugar, and cinnamon on top! Perfection! And perfect to relax with after work! http://www.flickr.com/photos/20741867@N05/10564089135/in/photostream/
Hmmmm… I was hiping this would be better. But then again rooibos is hard when it comes to my taste. I love very few rooibos. This was deffinitely melony and cinnamon, but it had that rooibos taste really bad! Strong! Awh man, thank you linnaete for sharing this with me!
I had this, this morning for work. Mm mm mmmmmmm mm mm! This is definitely a chai. I can taste all the spices! It smelled like a rooibos tho how weird. You can actually taste the pumpkin! Finally! A pumpkin tea with pumokin!
Where have you been all my life, little tea sample from Verdant?! I’ve had this one in my travel with me vintage lipton tea tin for a few months now and have yet to try it. Now that I finished the Traveling Tea Box C, I can focus on my huge swaps and samples and orders I have piling up in my closet. Ha Ha. I am actually making a Verdant order tonight and this baby is getting ordered. I loved the smoothness this tea brought. Defintely could taste all the notes. Chocolate, roasty rice, caramel, love it! Each steep was completely different from the one before which I loved, it’s like have multiple teas in 1. I got 3 steeps out of it before it started to get to late to be drinking a black tea. I should be in bed by 8 for my 4AM shifts:) I also ate with it some chocolate that paired perfectly with it. :)
Well I love this one and don’t know what more to say about it. Speechless.
Traveling Tea Box C #24
Wow! You can smell the lemongrass as this steeps. But the taste is less potent. I loved the combo of coconut in here it tamed the lemon grass and hid the ginger. Perfect:) ginger is not my cup of tea. This was fun to try but not something for me.
Traveling Tea Box C #23
OH MY GOODNESS! This tea! I love it. This is my nee favorite green tea blend. I don’t know why the ratings are so low :( there are subtle floral notes and a great sweetness to this tea. This is amazing. This would make a really great, sophisticated hard candy or sweet mint! Like those rose mints with the rose seed in the middle! That’s what this reminds me off! Less floraly though! I love it!
