Had this with heated Silk Nog — delicious! It had a little bit of roasted flavor that I don’t remember noticing before.
186 Tasting Notes
This is a lovely fall tea. The major flavors for me are spice and pumpkin. Not too much cheesecake when sugar is added, strangely, but without sugar the sweet cheesecake flavor is appreciable. I like this best with just a splash of soymilk.
I thought this was too sweet (even though I like my chai sweet) and not very vanilla tasting. There is something artificial about it, but it doesn’t even taste like artificial vanilla flavor. I managed to finish the whole box, but I prefer the regular chai flavor instead.
Brewed extra strong, and heated soymilk and sugar added, this is quite tasty. I am always looking for more spice, and this doesn’t quite knock my socks off. It’s a pretty good value and very convenient for when I don’t have time to make chai from scratch.
This is a lovely black tea. I’m not totally sure how it should compare to plain Assam, but it seems a little lighter and less malty, but still with nice body. I had this both hot in the morning, and resteeped and iced in the afternoon — delicious both ways.
Getting back into tea logging with an old favorite. Fruity and malty. I’m enjoying this hot, but I might do the second steep iced.

It’s so bergamot-y that it’s kinda like drinking perfume, and I like that. :)
This is quite tasty! I’ve been doing “iced” tea with cold water from the drinking fountain at work, and it works quite well. Very nice berry flavor.
Hey, it’s pretty good! I brewed this with cold water from the drinking fountain. It has a pretty good flavor, although maybe not quite as good as the iced tea I make at home.
Just as I suspected, this is delicious iced! I couldn’t quite finish my mug of hot tea this morning, so I poured the rest over ice and took it with me to work. The plum flavor and sweetness are more intense when iced rather than hot.
I found myself out of Lady Grey, but this is a suitable replacement. The lemon and spice flavor is soothing.
This oolong definitely has a pu-erh-like flavor. The leaves themselves actually look almost identical to the pu-erh I have from McNulty’s – very large and fairly flat leaves. The earthiness is more subtle than the pu-erh, and it has a smooth taste with no astringency.
This is the non-decaf version of a favorite. The stamp on the bag says “Amorous Almond” although I think the listing in the catalog and in the shop just says “Almond” – it might be a bit cheeky, but I like the alliteration better. :) Just the right amount of sweetness and almond flavor. It goes well with soymilk, and sugar would be a great addition too for a real treat.
Just the right amount of smokiness, and it’s great on the 2nd steep. I think I’ll be drinking this one a lot.
Another lovely flavored tea from McNulty’s. The plum flavor adds just the right amount of sweetness. I had it hot, but I think it also would be delicious iced.
This is a nice flavored black tea with a candy-like wild cherry flavor. As with many flavored teas, the scent is stronger than the taste, but a little sugar does bring out the flavor a bit more. The wild cherry flavor/scent reminds me of life savers or Luden’s wild cherry throat drops (and I love those!). Yum! I’m giving this room for improvement in my rating, but it is quite good.
I tried this with some soymilk this morning because I was in a rush and wanted to cool it down a little. Delicious! I was afraid the milk would dull the flavors, but it just smooths everything out nicely. I might try a little sugar next time – not too much, since this tea is already a little sweet to begin with.
Somehow I’ve hit on a really tasty blend of spices. Too bad I didn’t measure. But, I think I like anise a lot more than I thought!
Backlogging from last night. I crushed up a bunch of cardamom pods and put them in with some rooibos. It’s a nice combination with soymilk and sugar. I’ve been looking at a lot of recipes for Swedish baked goods lately, so cardamom has been on my mind. :)
I decided that this has been lingering in the tea cabinet long enough, so I brought a few bags to work. It seems that lower steeping temperature (hot water spigot) and shorter steeping times help this tea.
It’s been a while! I finally opened my second package of this. It’s just as delicious as I remembered.
Oh, silly me. Here I thought I had made a new combination, but I see I had logged the same thing almost a year ago! Anyway, it’s delicious. I added a bit of soymilk.
This is a nice, smooth tea with a sweet minty flavor. I usually like to mix my own black teas with spearmint or peppermint, but sometimes a bag is just easier. This is comparable to what I would blend myself – the mint is strong, but not overpowering.
