Love…Love…LOVE…this green tea. 1st Steep – Vegetal, bold, slightly spinachy, and very green. The leaves are so fine and grow amazingly once steeped. 2nd Steep – Just as delicious and more roasty in flavor. It has made it into my permenent stash. :-)

I quite enjoyed this one as it was prepared for me by Tony of Chicago Tea Garden at a tea tasting of his and then again by my hand at home. It is very clean, slightly grass, and sweet. I would say it is bright and balanced. Delicious!

I had this after my almost daily cup of coffee. Yes, coffee just one cup though. Nevertheless, as for teas this one started my day. I was lucky to first sample this goodie at Tony’s Tea Tasting at the Chicago Tea Garden and since I enjoyed it I picked some of it up on my way out along with others in his delicious tea arsenal.

I found this one to be bold and smooth, a little smokey and toasty. It was a delicious cup, especially in the morning.

I have a cup of coffee in the morning too – on the weekends sometimes two! I don’t feel like I have to choose :)

This is sorta off-topic, but I saw your sales post on Tea Trade and I am SO getting some. I’ll probably do two orders because I couldn’t pick just five. :D

Sweet, Tabby! If you want to get it today I can ship it out tomorrow. :-)

I agree JacquelineM. I too enjoy a great cup of coffee. Nothing wrong with that. :-)

Sure, I’ll PM you. :)

Thank you “KeenTeaThyme” for sending me such a generous sample of this deliciously creative tea. I was surprised to get a taste of toasted marshmallow. I tasted a hint towards the end of the sip. Overall, I wish it was a bit stronger in flavor but I will say it is smooth and just the right amount of smokiness. Yum!

Thank you for sending me this sample LiberTeas and all the other goodies you spoil me. :-)

This stuff is good and normally I am not that impressed with strictly vanilla teas but this so unique. I honestly can’t describe it well other than to say it isn’t sweet but it is smooth and tastes totally different than any other vanilla tea I have tried and that is a good thing.

I made this again and added some honey and wow it was good. It would make for a refreshing iced tea. Perfect for a hot summers day. I bumped up the score.

I got this for my husband over the holidays as a stocking stuffer. He allowed me a taste and I for one am not a fan. The Candy Cane peppermint flavor really wasn’t pronounced enough for me. It was a bit bland but it was smooth.

Have to agree…I can not get a real strong pepermint or minty taste from this one.

First, I want to say “Thank You, LiberTeas” for sending me this sample some time ago now. Unfortunately, I am a mood based tea drinker and if I am not in the mood to try a specific tea I will not be able to properly appreciate it. That being said my mood drove me to try this wonderful concoction. The bananas taste fresh and juicy. It is light and remenisant of a traditional old fashioned Banana Cream Pie. Yummy!
