Now this is a good tea. Really good. I don’t tend to like fruity teas, in fact, I generally avoid them. I got this because I needed one more for my ocho sample so I threw this one in. The only way I can describe this is in terms of Jelly beans. But this isn’t an overly sweet tea. Just sweet enough. It tastes as though I have both a juicy pear jelly bean and a cinnamon jelly bean in my mouth. And those happen to be 2 of my 3 favorites (the other being the popcorn jelly bean—anybody found a tea for that one?). I will definitely be re-ordering this. So far I’ve really liked 3 out of 4 of the joy’s teaspoon teas. Not bad!

@sil, you’ve never had this one? They have an awesome choose your own sampler deal. Not sure about the shipping to canada though. Worth a try if they do!

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
