Cold brewed this! I didn’t get a whole lot of orange out of this. This is one I prefer warm.

It looks like my opinion of this hasn’t changed much since my last try. It’s mostly chocolate and tea. While it tastes good, it’s not what I was expecting or wanting. This would be a nice chocolate tea, but I was expecting other flavors as well. I have about a cups worth of this left, so I should be finishing it off soon. I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t get more.

I’ve had this one for a while, so it might be losing flavor at this point, but I feel like no matter what I do I can’t get the flavor out of this that everyone else gets! Oh well, I guess it just isn’t meant to be.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 30 sec

drank Strawberry Vanilla by Unknown
252 tasting notes

I received this in a TTB that I organized long ago on another site. It was a home blend by one of the participants, made to replace one of their favorite teas when it was discontinued. I picked it for my morning class tea, as I was still craving something sweet. I definitely get the sweet strawberry flavor, its very smooth and creamy. However, I’m getting more of a chocolate flavor than a vanilla flavor. Its still very good, just not quite what I was expecting.

What? Another site? Do tell. Or maybe I shouldn’t spread myself too thin, got my hands full already.

I don’t know if you’ve heard of reddit, or know how it works. It’s basically a link aggregation site. It’s divided into specific sections for just about everything. My favorite tea related sections are reddit.com/r/tea and reddit.com/r/teaexchange

Drank this yesterday evening. I was needing a caffeine boost, and was craving a sweet chocolatey tea. This always smells so delicious steeping up. However, I accidentally let this go longer than I meant, and it got a bit bitter. The chocolate was still there but I wasn’t getting any orange. It was completely my fault, but I would recommend not going past four minutes with this one.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

drank Coconut Chai by Premium Steap

Just finished this off. I enjoyed this, especially with milk. The coconut added a creamy aspect. However, it was a bit weak for my tastes. I would really like to find a strong coconut chai!

drank Hairy Crab Oolong by Virtuous Teas

Finished the rest of this off today! I’m still inexperienced with oolongs, so I’m not super sure of what I’m saying. But I would say this was a nice, lightly floral cup. It was very refreshing and kept me alert while studying!

Wow. I wonder how well this is selling, with such an inviting name! :)

Emilie

I received it in a traveling tea box, and I was definitely a bit hesitant at first!

Uh-oh. This smelled a bit soapy before I steeped it. I’ve heard stories about coconut going bad, and now I’m worried to drink this! Of course, I just showered, so it could also be that..
After steeping, it still smells of that delicious bakey coconuty smell that I was expecting. Maybe it hasn’t gone bad!
Hmm, so there’s definitely not as much taste, most likely because I’ve had this for a while, but it doesn’t taste bad. I’ll have to finish the rest of this off quickly just in case!

I received this in an exchange with wheezeybee, thanks! I really love smoky teas, which seem to be something that most people feel very strongly about, either love or hats. I needed something yesterday evening to keep me going through studying. This seemed perfect! I don’t remember much about it now, but I do know that I enjoyed it!

Kittenna

Teeehee, love or hats! Apologies, typos/funny autocorrects make me giggle :D

Emilie

No, its pretty funny! That’s what I get for typing on my phone!

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
