This lovely tea isn’t going to last long! I am starting to inhale it! It’s so yummy iced in my new iced tea travel press! I love this thing. Like so much!

Anyways, I’m loving this one as an iced tea. It’s already sweet enough on its own so nothing added to this one. The rest of my tin won’t last long now…

Have you ever cold-steeped it? I have a random bag hanging out in my collection, and I still haven’t tried it.

Haven’t tried the cold-steeping on this one yet. I could see that being pretty good though

I love this tea so much. I do wish there was a bit more black tea in this one as I feel there really isn’t much there, but I do love this one. I love the combo of the nuts and creaminess to it. This tea is just so yummy. I do love it as a latte too. :)

I really wanted to love this tea, but there are just way too many apples for me. So sad.

How many times have I reviewed this one now? Too many? Either way again today I’m loving this tea. I steeped up western style as I have somewhere to be in about an hour and still have to pack a diaper bag and get ourselves ready to go out the door. But this time I’m adding some milk! I know it’s crazy to do that with this lovely tea but for some reason I just wanted to.
I love this tea. So smooth and yummy. It’s helping my day start a little better.
Do you ever have one of those days where you wake up and instantly think about everything that’s gone on in the last few weeks? Today was one of them. My husband is finishing his last week at a job he basically hates now and is starting a job next week that i think he’s going to love.
Mid to late January we had to put our one cat down. He was becoming too aggressive and spooked about everything and he gave me such evil looks near the end and I thought he was going to pounce on me and my son. He didn’t handle change too well. I didn’t want to have to but we knew it was for the best especially since we knew he wouldn’t do well going to the humane society, if he couldn’t handle me moving furniture around and a few new noices of my son I knew he wouldn’t handle the humane society. Something was off about that cat. I miss him because he was so sweet at times but I don’t because his bad times where really bad.

Anyways…. Lots on my mind today. And it’s nice to have a moment to sit and wash it all down with a very delicious tea.

I tend to wake up in full throttle, too. Not always a good thing, is it? :)

I have decided I’m so over black teas with peppermint. I’m not living this one even though it’s a good tea. I’m just so done. I was so addicted to them at one time but I think I over did it.
Anyway I’m saying goodbye to this one. Think I’ll see if my aunt wants the rest of this one? I dunno

Sipdown from yesterday! I do enjoy this one but I’m not sad to see it go. Bye tea! Probably won’t restock for a . Trying really hard to drink down some of my teas

Another sip down! Still on my straight tea kick. Not sure why yet. Anyways, last cup of this today. I’m still doing the milk and sugar thing but whatever. haha

I definitely get the jam/fruit taste which is fine, but not something I would go for everyday. I definitely prefer black teas that don’t have that.

But even still, this is a good tea and I can appreciate it for what it is. I probably wouldn’t get this again though.

Haven’t had this for years, but I remember liking it a lot.

For some reason I’m on a straight tea kick. But I’m making it the way I always use to make my Orange Pekoe when I very first started drinking tea: milk and sugar. It’s so yummy.
This tea didn’t stand a chance. I inhaled it. I would love to get more of this one as my alternative to Orange Pekoe, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get it easily again or not. I found this on the discount shelf at the grocery store sometime last year… But I do know of a place not far that sells a Canadian Breakfast tea from Metropolitan tea company so maybe I’ll switch back to that one.
Either way, this tea is super good and I loved it. It will be missed for sure.

I have fallen in love with this tea all over again… as a latte! I’m amazed at how good this is as a latte. I love adding a bit of agave to it, even though it doesn’t really need it, but I find that I love sweet lattes.

Anyways, highly recommend. So yummy

Oh yeah, so good!

I believe this is my first ever time having this as a latte. I made it today at home with my advent calendar tin. It’s so lovely as a latte. I’m glad I didn’t sweeten it as it’s sweet enough on its own, but it’s so lovely with milk and is such a great colour. Love this tea.

Kristal

I still want to try this as a latte! Maybe when I get home after work I will as a treat :)

Alyssa

Mmmm this sounds nice as a latte. Thanks for the suggestion.

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I’m also looking to finish a novel that I’ve been writing for the last several years.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m a proud new mom of a sweet little baby boy born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
