157 Tasting Notes
Iced matcha latte made with coconut milk. So great. I had some inflammation in my body going on from wisdom teeth and PMS and what not, and after I drank this I felt soo much better. Didn’t have to take a pain killer. The power of tea. c:
Sitting on my kitchen floor drinking this.
I just spent the night making a delicious soup and chocolate chip muffins.
And then I collapsed on the floor. And I am sitting here chatting via interwebz and drinking my beloved Luscious Watermelon iced tea.
I am too tired to move. Someone bring me a pillow? zzZzZZZZZZzZzzzzz
I disagree with the bad reviews, I think this tea’s really great. Make sure it has room to expand because it expands a lot! And it’s really beautiful. Would be lovely in a glass teapot.
The lemon myrtle and jasmine do take the forefront and there’s a hint of orange oil. I like the oolong base, it’s light and refreshing. Like the description says, it’s quite rejuvenating. I had received this as a sample and I’ll be purchasing more of it next order.
Smells amazing in the tin. Like coffee and caramel and chocolate and vanilla. MMMmmm.
Steeped in hot cocoa. MOCHA DELICIOUSNESS! There’s a hint of almonds that makes it sort of reminiscent of amaretto. This. is. so. good.
(I’m a huge coffee fan in addition to tea.)
“Chicory is well known for its toxicity to internal parasites. Chicory (especially the flower) was used as a treatment in Germany, and is recorded in many books as an ancient German treatment for everyday ailments. It is variously used as a tonic and as a treatment for gallstones, gastro-enteritis, sinus problems and cuts and bruises. (Howard M. 1987). Chicory contains inulin, which may help humans with weight loss, constipation, improving bowel function, and general health. In rats, it may increase calcium absorption and bone mineral density.”
Cool! Love yummy things that are also good for you. :)
Made a BIG pitcher of this today. :D Almost out of my first 250g bag! Oh noes.
This is pretty nice. I think I expected more marshmallow flavor. I have a vanilla creamer that tastes like marshmallows, maybe I should add a dash of that.
I am REALLY craving marshmallow treats now. Damnit, Frank.
This is an underrated tea.
Steeped with a bit of raw local honey that hadn’t crystallized yet. Mmm. Green rooibos is a lot more approachable than oxidized red, it’s a more gentle creamy taste that’s kind of unexplainable until you try it. It’s hearty, smooth, fruity and devoid of bitterness. It may be 200% more potent in antioxidant and flavinoid properties than red rooibos. It’s great for your skin and low in tannins. And it’s cheap! So try this!
I INHALE this iced with sugar.
Iced with coconut milk & sugar. Yummy!
Just purchased three more 250g bags of Luscious Watermelon. Was not joking about my obsession, folks. I’m going to need watermelon rehab after it runs out.
Made another cup of this just to make sure I want to buy a lifetime supply before it’s sold out.
Yep. Still freaking amazing. Off to purchase a lifetime supply.
Hopefully the box it’s sent out in will be big enough for me to live in.
not feeling good tonight :( save me, peppermint.
Alright. Drinking this before bed to test out the dream claims…
“Most people report vivid, cohesive, realistic dreams the night after drinking it. Guayusa Tea is also used as an admixture in the Sacred Ayahuasca Brew to improve the taste and give the user energy and confidence.”
“The Kichwa people claim that guayusa induces dreams that foretell whether hunting expeditions will be successful.”
“It also has the interesting effect of inducing lucid dreaming. For this reason, it is known as the “watchman’s plant”, as even when sleeping you are aware of your external surroundings. For those interested in shamanic dreaming this is certainly the plant to explore."
It’s also suppose to be an aphrodisiac.
Well, this should be an interesting night… I already have insanely crazy, vivid dreams every night that I can always recall… and I’ve easily lucid dreamed since I was a little girl… so my brain just might explode.
Sweet dreams ;)
Edit. the next morning
I woke up and laid in bed for half an hour scared this morning trying to figure out if one of the dreams I had was real. It was dream within a dream type of stuff. I knew I was dreaming, yet I didn’t. It was really weird. It did seem to help me face things in my mind and give me some good insight, though. Very interesting.
No notes yet.
I purchased this just for the health benefits, and I love that it’s organic. I had no idea it’d be so good! The first thing I noticed was while it was steeping it smelled so creamy! Like steamed milk. Also a hint of buttery green tea. Interesting!
Amazing on it’s own. Same creamy taste as the aroma! (Had no idea rooibos could be so creamy..) But then I added a splash of coconut milk and sweetener, so good!! I love this. One of my new favs. Tastes great, amazing for you, and inexpensive. Awesome.
I absolutely love this iced with sugar. I bought the biggest size but if it’s still in stock tomorrow I’m seriously going to buy as much as I can. I’m a watermelon freak.
Best chamomile tea I’ve had. Fruity and creamy. Vanilla frosting and butterscotch notes.
Chamomile seems to cause really insane dreams for me, some really disturbing.. to the point where I stopped drinking it… but this is so good I’m giving it a chance. We’ll see what happens lol.

I absolutely love green tea lattes. This makes the best green tea latte I’ve EVER had. Totally smooth! No fishiness, no grittiness… this is so amazing. I ♥ you, David!
I’ll be stocking up on this for sure, I’m going to put it in everything! haha. So happy to have found a good organic matcha! For the health benefits and the sheer yumminess!!
Oh oh I forgot to say how I prepared my latte…
1 teaspoon whisked in a tiny bit of hot water until dissolved, then steamed coconut milk poured up to the top. Spoon of sugar. Perfecto!

Just cooked a big breakfast and creamy Pumpkin Chai lattes to go with. :) Goodmorning.
I’m totally obsessed with this tea. Today I tried adding brown sugar & a splash of coconut milk. (At David’s suggestion of making it into a latte,) and oh my gosh… Makes it a million times better. Wow. SO comforting.. Try it!! Oh and not to mention how pretty the milky pink color is :) You will melt into a puddle of happy goodness. c:
1 tsp peppermint, 1/2 tsp spearmint per 8 ounces.
Makes me feel so good!
Enjoying hot & sweetened, but it’s veryyy good iced. Especially with a bit of fresh tarragon.
I have died and gone to tea heaven.
Steeped this up for the max time, added cream, brown sugar, and a pinch of white sugar.
This…is better than…. most things.
I really don’t understand how this is so amazing.
I’ve had pumpkin chais. And they were always weak crappy chais with no pumpkin flavor.
But this? ..Wow. That’s really all I have to say at this moment.
I have to keep this stocked up, for the rest of my life.
I really, REALLY can’t get over how PUMPKINY this is. Flipping pumpkin pie in a glass. Not just the spices that go into pumpkin pie, this tastes like amazing ripe pumpkin.
