drank Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea
392 tasting notes

Had this tea last night as a before bed drink…

Mmmm… the dry leaves of this tea smell so delicious! They smell like caramel and pear and just overall very sweet and strong and desserty! It is so strong smelling that I could smell it before I even opened the package.

The lovely scent carries over as it steeps! This was one of those teas that I couldn’t wait to drink as it was steeping. It has a really nice flavor. I have never had a pear flavored tea before but I adore pears so this tea has been on my wish list for a while. This tea definitely lives up to its name. It tastes like pears and caramel. It is quite awesome.

I received the dessert sampler pack as a gift and this tea made me super excited to try the other 3 teas included. Can’t wait to have one after dinner tonight!!!

Mmmm… I love this tea so much!!! I had 2 cups today one for breakfast and then one when I got home because I was craving it all day!!
It is so delicious and creamy, with a citrusy flavor and a strong black base. I just love it! Plus I just want to eat the dry leaves they smell so good!
My boyfriend got 4oz as an early anniversary present and I am so excited to drink every bit of it!!!!

Pj’s, mint tea, milano cookies and discovery channel are a great end to a very long day!

This tea is so relaxing and yummy. It is very enjoyable! Also I am surprised by how dark this tea is. It brews to be as dark as a black tea. I wonder why?

Backlogging a bunch of cups of this…

I am just getting over a cold and I drank a ton of this tea to help combat it. It tastes like fruit loops not even kidding. That is what I think when I drink this tea every time. It is decent. Not my favorite, but it works well as a soothing tea.

Also I love the look of this tea in the bag. It is so colorful and pretty! There are so many different visible ingredients!

Just read through some of the other tasting notes of this tea and realized Meghann M also thought this tea smells and tastes like fruit loops – glad I am not the only one – haha.

Tabby

Adagio’s Citron Green tastes just like Froot Loops, too!

Caitlin

Thats funny – I want to try it now – lol.

Tabby

I highly recommend it. :)

My boyfriend surprised me with an early 2 year anniversary present of thepuriTea flavored tea gift set which has this tea as well as passion fruit and mango – mmm!

This tea smells very sweet, kind of like strawberry mike and ikes. It tastes pretty much the same as it tastes. That is very sweet and very fruity. I quite liked it but I think I need to try it iced to truly appreciate its flavor!

drank Cookie by Lupicia
392 tasting notes

Okay this tea is AMAZING!!!! It smells like absolute heaven. It is this wonderful mix of vanilla, caramel, biscotti, and a little bit of coffee. It smells just like this coffee and gift store my mom used to take me in when I was little. This was one of those teas that I just couldn’t wait for it to finish steeping because it smelled so delectable!

It also tastes delicious. It tastes like an almond biscotti cookie, combined with a caramel latte. I can’t wait to drink every bit of this tea!

drank The au Lait by Lupicia
392 tasting notes

So I went for a 4min 30sec steep on this to try out what it would taste like! It was indeed very strong, but not bitter which I was happy about. The extra long steep actually brought out a sweeter element. It had this nice bold fruity undertone, that I really enjoyed. If I had to pick out what fruit I would probably say a raspberry like flavor. I quite enjoyed it. (Plus an excellent way to wake up in the morning!)

This is all I could think about this rainy, icky day. I made sure to make myself a nice hot cup as soon as I got home. This time with milk. I think I actually liked it with water better. It was still quite delicious though.

drank Passion Island by Lupicia
392 tasting notes

I was surprised no one else has logged this teas. Anyway this is another one of the teas I got with my Lupicia order. I actually had this one yesterday. I mad a pot of it iced. It smells delicious dry and while steeping, very fruity. I was really happy to see the chunks of fruit in there cause I like my tea to be flavorful!
This tea was great iced. It was fruity and refreshing (not as flavorful as thepuritea’s passion fruit tea but a close second). Also my boyfriend helped me drink the pot, I am starting to get him quite addicted to iced teas!!!
Also on a completely different note, I missed my 1 year anniversary of joining steepster (september 23)! I am sad I forgot about it but glad I have had this awesome site to use for 1 year!!

Mmmm… strong but yummy! I love strong teas! I saw Rachel’s review of this teas and I was like I have to try that tea! I love really strong breakfast type teas and that is exactly what this is. I steeped it for 2 & 1/2 minutes and it was stronger then most black teas that I steep for 5. Not gonna lie I wanna try what this tastes like at 5! I bet its crazy. I had the cup with a splash of milk as suggested and it was delicious!!!

Haha! Definitely looking forward to your 5min tasting note… you could even try 6, my prefered steeping time for blacks when adding milk.

Caitlin

Yeah I am definitely gonna play around with this one!

Tabby

I am intrigued. I love intense teas.

Caitlin

Yeah that’s why I bought it too – haha! Its quite good :)

Profile

Bio

I am a typical college student, an Evolutionary Anthropology major. I spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend and friends, playing TF2 and popcap games, reading, and of course drinking tea.

I first started drinking tea every morning when I was a freshman in high school. I have recently discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I absolutely adore trying new teas (especially ones that sound like desserts)…Although I will always have my old favorite: big bold breakfast teas and my new favorite: wonderfully flavorful rooiboses.
