This was okay. A black tea with a orangey flavor and a hint of cinnamon. I wish the black base had been a bit better though.

This surprised me. It’s one of my favorite Stash teas. A great flavor. I think the teas combined here would have worked well individually, but they work great together too. I don’t taste or smell any hint of jasmine though. But I think I used four steeps from the same tea bag, I liked it so much.

I’ve been holding onto the last couple Butiki samples I have because I love them so much, I want them to last. This tea is light and simple but elegant at the same time. The lovely chamomile serves as a base for a delicious lavender. Lavender reminds me of my grandma’s house. Just the two ingredients works well. It couldn’t be better! Another amazing tea from Butiki!

This one didn’t have too much flavor, but I could have swore it was lemongrass. It isn’t listed in the ingredients. Maybe it was a weak orange. I didn’t taste cinnamon either. I like my tea with a ton of flavor. This isn’t it.

Usually licorice isn’t for me. But this tea surprised me. It immediately reminded me of Yogi’s Aztec Sweet Chili, which I love. Looking at the ingredients, they are pretty much the same, except this one has sarsparilla and the other has pepper. I think the flavor works. It’s a silky licorice flavor, not as strong as a licorice candy, so maybe that is why I like it.

You have to steep this one just right to find even a hint of berry flavor. And the green rooibos isn’t as great as the red. There isn’t that mellow vanilla flavor to it that I love rooibos for.

There is a LOT of ingredients in this tea. Seems like they just threw everything in here. But the only thing I could really taste is a delicious sugary cinnamon. It was best that I could only taste the cinnamon though, since I think tasting a lot of these flavors together would be really bad.

I was surprised at the flavor here. Usually fruity teas don’t seem to have much flavor. There was a nice black currant taste here. Otherwise, a mild black tea base.

This is the last of my Stash pumpkin. I haven’t drank any in a while, and I figured Halloween was the perfect time to drink the last tea bag. I remember I complained it didn’t have enough pumpkin in it. It still doesn’t, but there is more pumpkin here than I remembered. Not a bad tea. Though if I drink a black tea I usually don’t prefer decaf. But a good fall tea!

More bad Twinings tea. I didn’t think hibiscus should have went with these other flavors and it was overpowering them too. I like the idea of a cherry and cinnamon tea but Twinings teas just don’t work for me.

I really do not like hibiscus (with some exceptions) and Twinings “fruit” teas are all awfully overpowered by hibiscus to my taste. Apart maybe maybe from raspberry and echinacea one, but even that one I am not sure.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
