Just as promised. A delicious blend strawberry and chocolate. The chocolate flavor is just like candy but in a mellow subtle way. I think I may have to purchase this one. I am very picky about strawberry and chocolate blends and this is the first one I have enjoyed. Delicious!

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. :-)

Tabby

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.
