Finishing of the evening with what I have to say is my most favorite Genmaicha I have tasted thus far. I am trying to include more greens and oolong throughout the day as things are getting warmer here. It is nice to have something a little lighter and refreshing. However, black teas will still offer up a strong presence within my diet. :-)

Boy do I LOVE this stuff. It’s even better with an ice cream sandwich. Yummy!
Still loving this little gem. I needed a strong bold black tea this morning and this certainly did the trick. It is bold, rich, and just plain lovely. LeafSpa is very much missed by me.
First thank you Brandy for sending me this tea and sorry it took so long to try it but better late then never. :-)
As for the tea it definitely isn’t my cuppa. I actually had to dump it. I only got through half a cup. The flavors were all over the place, they didn’t make sense together and I didn’t even recognize tea flavors that were in the there. I will sum up by calling this one a mess.
Surprisingly subpar. Tea courtesy of the Red Carpet Club – United Airlines. A bit watery. The vanilla compliments the black based only because none are strong evenly. Overall “Meh”
The blueberries are so huge. I absolutely love the fresh juicy flavor I get. I think the green tea base allows the creaminess and the blueberry flavor to shine so much more. This will make it into my permenant tea cabinet. Delicious!
The dry leaf smelled authentically like pancakes with melted butter and gooey syrup all over. Just thinking about it elevates my blood sugar. Once steeped it holds true and essentially tastes like just like yummy pancakes in a not so guilty cuppa, love it! :-)
A delicious blend that at first comes off like just plain hot water at first but let it cool and the flavors start to shine. It was very creamy and lightly sweet. It tasted similar to fresh rice pudding. I just can’t adequately describe it.
Amazing stuff, I drank this all day re-steep after re-steep. The flavor lasts and never gives up. It tastes so natural. The lychee and oolong are perfectly balanced no flavor takes the other over. They play very well together. Delicious! Thank you SororiTEA for sharing this offer.
A deliciously earthy matcha with a nice strawberry juiciness. I added milk and sweetener. Yummy!
So if you didn’t already know I am reviewing 9 teas I received from Capital Teas on my blog www.MyTeasandMore.com and am giving people an opportunity to purchase a sample set of all 9 of the teas to try, review, and perhaps compare notes. I thought would be a nice way to do a tea tasting from any where we all may be. This tea is number 3 of 9 for me. I found didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped I would. Way to cinnamon and not enough roll. Check out my blog www.MyTeasandMore.com for a more complete review, purchase information can be found there too if interested.
This was a lovely gift sent to me by Sanctuary T (“Thank You!”) and I have found it a delicious addition to pastas, omlettes and much more. It give the dish an added depth and character. Just a dash does it all. Enjoying it in some lightly seasoned Greek style noodles with feta and pimento stuffed green olives. Delicious!
Tried this again today and I will say I really did taste the flavors. It is a nice light chocolate flavor. I think the coconut really adds to the flavor. It is naturally sweet but not overly. It is slightly creamy. Overall a decent cup.
I really so enjoy this. I made it in my Yixing pot this time, it was fun. The leaves opened up so beautifully. Wonderful on a dark and stormy night while watching Lord of the Rings which I just noticed is available to stream on Netflix.
Thank you Jaime for sending me this tea to try. To my surprise I am the first to review it. Overall a decent cup of tea. The peach flavor shows first and the lychee tapers in deep tones towards the end of the sip. Although it was a pretty decent cup I didn’t find it over the top and would probably not purchase any in the future. It is one of the those cups of tea that taste good at the moment but the memory fades once the cup is empty.
Thank you Jaime for sending me this sample to try. I found it very interesting and very sensitive to water temperature. I made this once as if it were a Rooibos and steeped it for 6 mintues in error and it was terrible. This is the second time around and for some reason I treated it as a black tea and used boiling water. However, I steeped it for 2 1/2 mins and it was infinitely better. I still found it a bit bitter but the tropical flavors did shine a lot better this time around. Next time I will be sure to use a lower temperature. I have high hopes that it will be much better.
Very delicious. A nice surprise of deep, rich flavors. Thank you Jessica for sending me this sample. I regret not tasting this sooner.
I really wanted to like this one. I tasted the honey and caramel essence but I didn’t feel as if they played as well together as I would have liked. With that said it isn’t terrible but I guess it just didn’t live up to what I imagined it would taste like in my imagination. I will definitely finish the package but I don’t have any plans to purchase more.
So loving this. I shouldn’t be having this so late but I just needed something robust to cap off the evening and this hit the spot.
