drank Raspberry by Adagio Teas

I enjoyed this very much – raspberry is one of my favorite fruit flavors. The raspberry is present but not overwhelming when cold steeped as iced tea. I will definitely be repurchasing this summer.

I enjoy this, and take it with me when I go away, but am not sure I will be repurchasing. For chai, it is decent, and definitely has some spice. But I have noticed a lack of cinnamon taste and also a lack of vanilla. Considering it is vanilla chai, this disappoints me.

drank Lemon Chiffon by Red Rose

I was surprised by how much I liked this for a cheap grocery store tea. It really does taste like a cake, but not too overwhelming. I would absolutely recommend, and I think I might have to look at a few more options from this brand for my teabag needs.

I enjoyed this, it was very nutty. But it had an almost smokey taste that was a hair reminiscent of coffee. I probably won’t repurchase, but will enjoy what I have. Recommended for those who like strong tea.

I absolutely love this for iced tea, but it is tasty hot too. Very citrussy and delicious, and will absolutely repurchase.

A very unique and pleasant green – it has smokey notes, and ocean-y flavors, and citrus. I love how it isn’t astringent at all, because it helps these strong flavors from being overwhelming. I am not the biggest smokey tea fan, but I did enjoy this.

I like these for travel mostly, and they do get the job done. I would rate them higher if the spice were stronger. Recommended for travel, but you can get better if you are willing to hunt some better loose leaf stuff.

Really not too bad for bagged cheap tea, but also not super special. I would definitely use in a pinch, with an almost citrussy aroma that I like as a standby. Recommended for travel or guests who won’t appreciate the fancy stuff.

drank Lemon Green tea by Pukka
169 tasting notes

I enjoyed this – I typically don’t use teabags, but I travel with some regularity and am a pet sitter so I spend lots of nights away from home and need portable tea. This has a very light lemon scent, but is almost undetectable in the flavor. I prefer this to artificial flavors that overwhelm, but it could use a bit more. I got two steeps out of this.

Bio

I am a 28 year old return-to-college student working on my certification in Early Childhood Ed, who discovered the (incredibly vast) world of tea about 3 years ago. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
