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”

I’m not particularly impressed by any Numi tea I’ve tried up to this point.

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.

Lychee must be in season as it seems I’m seeing it everywhere. I almost bought a tin from H & S but I didn’t want that much in case I didn’t like it. I really like the actual fruit though.

Oh man! I’m a sucker for lychee oolongs… I might have to give this one a try :)

It really was awesome. I could have even steeped it more but alias it was time for bed.

A deliciously earthy matcha with a nice strawberry juiciness. I added milk and sweetener. Yummy!

If you’re gonna add milk, might as well add chocolate :)

I saw it, tell your wife I appreciate her sense of humor.

Deeply grateful for spouses who, if they don’t exactly enable, at least endure the tea habit :)

@gmathis – I couldn’t have said it better than that. :-)

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.
