I like it. It makes me think of the Atomic Fireballs that I love! Usually I add milk to my spiced teas, but it’s not necessary for this one. It’s probably unnecessary to sweeten it too, but I add a bit of sugar anyway.

It smells increadible in the tin! That said, once brewed, the raspberry flavor wasn’t as apparent as I’d hoped it would be, but it was still a tasty cuppa Earl Grey. I prepared it the same way I do all other Earl Greys. Sweetened with suger (raw this time) and a splash of milk. Despite the not so apparent raspberry taste, no regrets on having picked this up.

Well, as soon as I poured the water on this one I knew there had to be some vanilla flavoring in there, because for whatever reason, teas with vanilla always seem to stink during brewing. At least to me. However, they usually taste pretty darn good, and this was no exception. I liked this tea as well as I’ve liked other red teas. Quite nice when you want an herbal with a little more flavor.

No bad at all. I like a spicy tea, and it’s a good thing, because as soon as you open the box, the ginger jumps up and slaps you in the face! Admittedly, when I bought this one I didn’t read the ingredients, so I was expecting more lemon flavor, because I’d assumed the “lemon” meant the citrus fruit, but I can’t say I’m disappointed. This could be an excellent “go to” tea when I have a cold.

Pretty good. I prefer the darker teas for the stronger flavors, but when you have a cold, a nice cuppa Chamomile is tough to beat. The added citrusy flavor is also a bonus. Got to be sweetened with honey. I enjoyed it.

Rather tasty. Not quite as spicy as the Ultra Spice Chai, but definitely a nice, light pumpkin flavor to it. I like it for the seasonal aspect. Good stuff.

Yet another free sample from The Republic of Tea! I’ve gotta be honest, I saw the words licorice root in the ingredients, and was immediately apprehensive. Not a big licorice fan. But it was free, and it smelled pretty nice in the sachet, so what the hell! Once I’d steeped it for five minutes, and added some sweetener, I was still a little concerned. However, after I added a bit of milk, I was pleasantly surprised! I bit on the fruity side with a lovely blend of spices! I like it! I might even order some at some point!

Pretty nice. Twinnings is usually a good go-to brand of teas for me, and I did enjoy it enough to finish the box off in relatively short order. A little on the light side, with not as much ‘oolong’ flavor as I’m used to, although the flavor is there. But I think I’ll stick to the cheap Golden Sail brand Oolong tea I get at the Eastern Arts store in the mall when it comes to this particular variety of tea.

Such a nice, classic tea. Mother used to buy htis tea when I was a kid, so when I was shopping for black tea to make my sun teas and I saw this one, I grabbed it. It makes for a decent iced tea, but I think it does even better as a hot cuppa! I add some sugar and a bit of milk, and I’ve got a sweet, creamy spot of hot tea!

Of course I’ll continue to make my iced tea with it as well. Tea in bulk is best when you’re burning through iced tea during hot weather!

I’d also forgotten about the little trinkets they’d included in the packaging! Found me a little blue fella in there! Hahaha!

Very nice! My sister actually found this at Marschall’s of all places. Weird. At any rate, I love a good white tea, and the pomegranate was not at all too sweet, as I’ve experienced in the past with other pomegranate flavored teas. Seemed a waste to only steep it for the recommended one to two minutes, so I went a bit longer. Then I just added a bit of sweetener and went to town!

Bio

I love tea and Border Collies. I am a college graduate (Class of 2011, BA Psych from Bay Path College), so I no longer have to buy college textbooks, which I strongly disliked!

However, now there are these bills showing up asking me to pay back student loans.

Oh bugger.
