Wow. This is everything a breakfast tea should be. It’s very malty and rich. There is also a light floral note that is just hinting at something citrus. Then there is the dark, and again rich, cocoa note at the end of the sip with a light touch of smoke.

I could get used to having this in my cup. Also, this tea pairs incredibly well with a veggie omelet. Yum.

Tea of the evening. Sipped on this while watching old Veronica Mars episodes. I love that she’s a kick butt detective and her name’s Veronica. :) Anyway, this was a nice creamy mint vanilla tea. I like the mellow flavors but that it still taste like a dessert tea. One of my favorites from DT.

Tea Sipper

One of the series I’ve been meaning to watch for ages!

VERONICA MARS OMG! Sorry. I just really like the show and the movie is coming out the day before my birthday and I just realized I wasn’t punctuating but that is mostly because this is one long, excited sentence in my head. Sorry. I REALLY like the show.

Veronica

Ooh, I just looked up the release date of the movie, and it’s a few days after my birthday. Yay for March babies! :)

VariaTEA

Haha! Yay! It is like the world is giving us a birthday gift :)

drank Starry Night by Art of Tea

This was really good. A great cup of vanilla yumminess. I added some sugar and a bit of milk, so it was wonderfully sweet and creamy. It was exactly what I wanted for an afternoon treat.

I like the sound of this, and the name of the tea company. I’ve never heard of them before!

I used to order from Art of Tea a lot, before I discovered that there are hundreds of other companies out there!

I actually buy it form my local tea shop who buys it wholesale from Art of Tea.

drank Ice Wine Tea by Design a Tea

I needed a bit of sunshine this morning, so I chose this tea. It’s light, floral, and fruity which is helping me combat the crazy cold weather we’re having. Every time I have this tea I tell myself to hunt down other good pear teas. I like the juicy feel the pear lends to the tea. Yum.

drank Chocolate Chai by Wegmans

I couldn’t decide between hot chocolate and tea this morning, so I chose this thinking it would be the best of both worlds. Lots of spicy chai and melted chocolate which is exactly what I was looking for.

drank Lemon Soleil by Adagio Teas

I cold brewed this, and while it’s better – a lot better – than the hot tea it’s still not my favorite. Even cold brewed there’s some harshness at the end of the sip.

Sipping on a cup of minty chocolate goodness with zero guilt is sometimes all a girl needs to be happy. I love that the great dark chocolate flavor comes from the tea instead of an artificial flavoring, and I love the amount of peppermint used in the blend. It’s a great mix.

So. Much. Blueberry. I really enjoyed the sweetness of the berries combined with the tangy cream cheese note. There weren’t any pastry flavors that I could detect, but the great blueberry flavor more than made up for it. I hot brewed my tea and then let it cool in the fridge. Next time I’ll try cold brewing it to see how it changes the flavors.

Tea of the morning. I love the strength of this Assam, and I love the depth of the malty notes. Part of me want to stay here and drink pot after pot, but I think I’d be twitching from all of the caffeine before I even started on the second pot.

drank Earl Grey Cream by Zen Tea
462 tasting notes

This was in my cup for most of the day yesterday. I wanted to relax and play video games with my family, and this was the perfect tea to sip while getting my butt kicked in Mario Kart and while building my fortress of solitude in Minecraft.

My thoughts on this tea are the same as always. It’s an amazing EGC.

Your reviews of this tea are the reason that I wanted to check out this company. And I am glad that I did, because this tea is awesome!

Veronica

Yay! Zen Tea is a great company, and this is a delicious tea. :)

Profile

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
