Finishing this up! Starting weight watchers has refocused me on making sure I drink more tea, for hydration purposes, and I am so glad! The past two weeks have reminded me how much I love it!

This one is earthy and strong, really perfect for a quick wake up drink for every day. Not my most favorite in the world…but good.

I bought this as an inexpensive way to have tea at school. I also love blackberries, and particularly love them combined with herbals. I wish I had a candle of this. I had a blackberry basil one once upon a time and it was amazing. I am surprised at how fragrant this is. While it might not be the best in the world, it is very tasty, and I will likely repurchase.

Long time no reviews. Heck, long time no new tea. In my travels, I decided to get a Numi variety pack. Normally I am loose leaf all the way but at school and while travelling, bags are just simpler.

That said, I didn’t find this to be very special. Black tea. Standard bagged fare for me.

This was very interesting. I tasted butterscotch the strongest, followed by the peach. The slight smoky edge gave it a sense of cooked peach, combining with the butterscotch to give an overall feel of a baked peach dessert. I enjoyed it, despite smoky teas not being my thing, because the smoke was really subtle.

I definitely taste tangerine and marshmallow in a strong way. I wouldn’t say it is reminiscent of a cupcake, but it is still pretty tasty. I like this hot, because citrussy marshmallow feels odd to me cold.

Delicious. Oaky and woody and it smelled like cocoa (but oddly didn’t taste like it to me). Awesome.

I haven’t reviewed a tea in forever it seems. School was crazy and I had a moment with coffee, and so I didn’t drink as much tea as I have in the past over this year. When I did, I was usually too zonked to think to log it.

Anyway, summer is here, and I am back. I like this one a lot. I love florals, but sometimes find them very strong. I like that there is a dessert-y quality, but also the soft floral. I have been starting out my day with this, very happily.

Warm and bready and vanilla sweet, but not super strong. Vanilla is definitely more of an undertone, but it is still there. I enjoy this a lot, but I probably won’t reach for it over other offerings from this company, or other vanilla teas I have supercharged by adding lots of extra vanilla. I like my vanilla to be more in your face.

Now a certified teacher, beginning my first year in third grade this fall. I have been involved in the tea world about 5 years now. 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!
