drank Vanilla Caramel by Bigelow
433 tasting notes

This blend usually gets passed over in favour of Vanilla Chai when I’m in the mood for a vanilla tea, but every time I have it I remember that I really like it. The smell can be a bit strange, I guess, but I like it. It’s a smooth caramel-y vanilla black tea that tastes great and goes well with a rainy, cool kind-of-almost-autumn morning.

drank Earl Grey Tea Latte by Tazo

Steeped this for the perfect amount of time, thankfully. Hit the spot today—my stressed out stomach couldn’t handle the usual chai but I really needed the caffeine.

drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea

My sister sent this to me (because wow, do I need some stress relief right now), and I wasn’t sure what to expect. When I read the ingredients I was pretty leery, because I really don’t like licorice or ginger, but the carob pod saved it for me. I was pleasantly surprised that it was tolerable, and maybe even okay. I sure wouldn’t drink this for the taste, and I didn’t notice any particular effect that it had on my mood/stomach ache, but I’ll try it again for sure.

drank Chinese Oolong by Bigelow

Paid closer attention to the brewing time and only brewed this for just over a couple of minutes today. I think it’s perfect, and the smell isn’t bothering me much (although I had to laugh when I saw my previous review here since that was the first thought I had again today, that I don’t care for the smell!). It’s a nice change from my few regular boring black bagged teas that I drink at work (when I’m too lazy/running late to bring a loose variety).

drank Tastes of Summer by Twinings

Felt like a fruity black tea today, so this was the pick. I was kind of specifically craving cherry, so I probably should’ve gone with Four Red Fruits instead, but this was close enough. Nice summery blend for sure!

I forgot to review this as I was drinking it today (and I guess I didn’t review it the last time I drank it either), so I can’t go too in-depth, but there isn’t really much coconut flavour in this. It also says it’s an herbal tea but it contains black tea so I think their definition of herbal is a little funky.

I enjoy this tea just because it’s different, but I’m not sure I’ll be too sad when I use it all up. I stuck some in the Traveling Tea Box, so I’m anxious to hear what other people think!

drank Iced Chai Tea Latte by Tazo

Not sure I’ll be going back to the hot chai any time soon… this summer is suddenly way too hot (after a very late start).

This is such a conundrum for me- I LOVE the bagged version and HATE the concentrate… but I can’t figure out a way to use the bagged version in iced chais…

Profile

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
