Just the right amount of smokiness, and it’s great on the 2nd steep. I think I’ll be drinking this one a lot.

drank Plum by McNulty's

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.

drank Wild Cherry Decaf by McNulty's
188 tasting notes

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.

drank Rooibos Chai by Custom

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!

drank Cardamom Rooibos by Custom

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. :)

drank Pumpkin Spice Chai by Twinings

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.

Interesting! I like hotter and longer steepings for my chais.

It’s been a while! I finally opened my second package of this. It’s just as delicious as I remembered.

drank Lavender Rooibos by Custom

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.

drank Plantation Mint by Bigelow

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.
