Another spring tea flavor to try.
Hmm. Strawberry flavor is very strong in this cup. I think someone else once said almost jam like, and I must say I agree. Its almost thick, in the flavor.
I think its a very good strawberry tea, refreshing and fun. Would be good for the warmer months.
Good! I’m thankful to JustJames, who sent this my way a few months ago to help me when I was feeling blue.
Yum. Now, off for a walk, to soak up the spring-time feel. Its going to rain here again tomorrow, so is should take advantage while I can.

(a steepster note. I find it funny that “asparagus” is listed as a flavor in the drop-down menu, but strawberry is not. Huh? Also “roasted chicken”. Please tell me there are not chicken flavored teas out there….)


Lol – roasted chicken flavoured tea is not high on my wish list either! ;-)

One of Adagio’s TARDIS blends (not the Cara McGee one) tasted like caramel and chicken broth to me…


eeeeek. Poultry flavored tea is to be avoided!


haha, I was going to ask if you liked it, but I see not. I guess even the caramel didn’t help. ; )


Chicken flavored tea = boullion?

Today, in my part of the world, its going to be in the mid 70’s. Gorgeous spring weather. Its not supposed to last, but I should take advantage of it, while I’ve got it.
And, cue the tea! Paris is so, so delicious, and I feel an almost perfect companion for a beautiful spring-like morning.
Light, bright, fruity and elegant, its one of my favorites.
I love Paris in the springtime. ;)

One of those mornings where I woke up too early, and when I was finally dozing back off, my alarm went off, and forced me into the day.
I have got tea, though. Delicious, delicious tea. And so I am going to drink this.
Today the honey note is particularly strong, which is delightful.
It will help friday get off to a strong start!

Flavors: Honey, Stonefruits


i definitely plan to order a sample of this…if it’s anywhere near as good as Paris, i’m in trouble!

all the glowing reviews & the honey and berry notes sound too tempting ;p

Sami Kelsh

Phwoarrr, this sounds fit!


Affirmation from my tea cabinet as well. It’s hard to ruin, too. (One of my favorite qualities in a brew.)

drank Carol by Lupicia

Time to sip down!
I’m trying to work out the wintery teas out of my collection, which is taking some work.
And I only had a serving left of Carol, so I decided to finish it off.
However, funnily enough, I’ve never found Carol to be very wintery. Its too fruity and light, so in my mind, its a spring tea.
Well, never mind. Its still a light, vanilla and fruity tea, which are flavor profiles that really push my buttons. Yum.
Also, I have some Yume, and I think that its very close to Carol. So I wont have to do without.

I steeped this too agressively today, so it has a hint of bitter this morning. But the vanilla note is also, strangely, more prevelent this morning. So thats good.

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo

Tea! But I’m still not really feeling up to the very good teas, so I am reaching for this.
Its a perfectly reasonable tea, but nothing amazing.
Still, there are nights when nothing amazing if a fine thing.

Spicy and bright today. Yet another tea that I seem to have one cups quantity left. Damn! Come on tea, lets sip down.
This is nice, though I doubt I shall buy it again.

Another endless batch of tea, though I think I’m one pot from the end.
This S&V tea at least does what is advertised, but I wont be looking back when its done.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

My significant other made me a cup of this last night. Trying to sooth my throat.
My cough is much better, but I have injured my side, so any coughing is agony.
Well, Comoro is always welcome.

Sami Kelsh

:( Vanilla good, but I hope your cough goes away! snuggles

My last tea pot worth of filtered water went into this pot. For my next act, more water.
Ah, the Tower. I’ve been thinking about the Tower of London, the place, as I’ve been watching a documentary about Richard the Third, who is a favorite historical figure.
And its all grey and rainy, and this tea seems to suit this tea.
My best friend send me a “get well” care package, including a few new teacups, one of which I am using to sip this lovely blend.

Flavors: Stonefruits


What a nice caring friend you have, enjoy your new cups :-)

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.
