Been a while since I’ve logged anything. Nothing really great about this tea, but it’s not terrible. I bet it would be good with a gingerbread creamer or something like that, but as is its pretty mild.

Continuing sampling I picked the coconut pouchong. Smells lightly of coconut milk. Blends nicely with the pouchong tea.

Strong Nutty Hazelnut Flavors, not so much chocolate.

They listed off a whole bunch of fruits in the description, but for me i didn’t really taste any of them. The flowery-hibiscus taste kinda overwhelmed the fruits.

Back after awhile,
This tea is fairly dark with a creamy texture to it. Smells very vanillay, but not so much for taste. Personally i prefer a little more vanilla taste.
The tea is very mild, which would have lended itself to more vanilla flavor in my opinion.

Sadly I ran out of Yogi Tea’s Vanilla hazelnut tea, and when I went to the store they didn’t have any. :( I looked around and found this and thought I could try it. The vanilla and almond smell are very apparent. However the flavors are a little muted. I added some cream and caramel to the tea, which made it better. Still miss my vanilla hazelnut though.

Been a while since i’ve had this tea. Bumping rating down a little as i had rated this tea back when i had not had many types of tea.

Decided to make a chai out of this and added a vanilla coffee creamer to it. DELICIOUS.

drank Rose Tea by Golden Moon Tea

GM sample 22/31
I haven’t been a fan of rose tea in the past. Most I’ve tried have been tiptoeing the line between tea and brownish perfume. So I was kinda of skeptical at first of trying this tea. Especially after opening the package the rose smell was pretty strong. I strongly expected to gag on this.
However after steeping the rose mellowed out a lot. The fragrance is just strong enough to complement the tea without overwhelming it. Taste is smooth not unlike flower petals, with just a floral aftertaste. Is this something i would drink everyday, no. However I would drink this tea again, sometime in the spring :P

drank Chai Ultra Spice by Twinings
79 tasting notes

Snowed in at the BF’s. He absolutely loves this tea with honey in it. I do like the ginger in the tea, but it’s not as spicy as bigelow’s chai tea. The spice is more biting rather than warming and smooth. Would probably be great with some creamer.

Preparation

Bio

Hello,
I’m a college graduate, who got into tea during late night studies (late nights without liking coffee otherwise sucks). I’m currently taking a year off in Montana as an Americorps, and hoping to go to medical school (lots more late tea nights for me).
Any tips or suggestions to try are greatly appreciated.
