drank Gypsy Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

With this tea I understand why people don’t like rose teas. This smells and tastes like perfume. Too intense, and drowns out its tea base. And you know its too much when I, who do like rose teas, think its too much. Proceed with caution with this one.

Ahhh. Meadow is the chamomile that I have been looking for. This is as rich and flavorful a chamomile tea as I have ever said. This was part of a bunch of teas that I got the last time I was in Oregon, and I really, really like it. I am always questing for a good chamomile to crown my evenings. This isn’t available anywhere locally for me, but thank goodness for the internet. I’ve got to try some more Smith Teamaker teas now.

Bought a tin of this on a whim. Eh. I’m not going to repeat that. Its got a strong enough flavor, and isn’t exactly unpleasant, but its far from my favorite, and the little granule balls of tea are a bit unsettling. Next time I’ll add a little milk and sugar and see if that improves the pot.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Ah, Comoro. Vanilla Blacks decaffeinated little sister. I would be more weirded out by a decaf black tea, if it wasn’t so lovely. A way for me to have the flavors of my beloved Vanilla Black in the evenings, without running the risk of being up all night. This is a delightful vanilla balm for the soul, and a great cup for the end of a long day.

drank Yume by Lupicia

Ah. Ahhhh. This is the stuff. Yume was an impulse buy, and I should listen to that impulse all the time. This is wonderful, simply marvelous. Fruity and light and simply wonderful. I am working on a month long 50000 word writing project, and my writings are always powered by tea. This is the perfect pot to start off this novel. Yume has beautiful fruit and vanilla flavors, though I don’t get much of the rose out of it. Yum!

drank Royal Wedding by Harney & Sons

This tastes like a macaroon, one of those coconutty ones! I can really get a sort of sweet almond, and the coconut, of course. Less of the rose flavor that is advertised. I like this, its sweet, without being cloying. I suspect this will be my only tin of this, but what a pretty tin it is!

drank Loke Lani by Lupicia
826 tasting notes

My parents returned from a trip to Hawaii and brought me this tea. I LOVE this tea. Its light, and seems to sparkle across the palate, which may be a weird thing to say about black tea, but there you have it. Its got rose in it, but its amazingly subtle, and just turns into a light and delicious tea. The sad thing is that this tea is only available in Hawaii, and I am rapidly running out of this. Sadness. I will save my last couple of pots of Loke Lani for a special occasion.

Had a pot of this this morning. This is a lovely spice blend, the addition of the citrus keeps it from being too cloying, and too dark tasting. A night bright note in the middle of the earthy spices.
Shame its only out in the wintertime, but I’m nursing my supply along until then, so I don’t run out.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
