Had a cup of this tea this afternoon with some crackers and cheese. It was a wonderful pairing. I don’t drink this tea that often but sometimes the bold smokiness really calls me. Today was one of those days and it was a spectacular cup of tea.

drank Passion Island by Lupicia

Easter morning breakfast tea! It looks colorful like spring!

I could have sworn I logged this before. Regardless this is a nice fruity tea. It isn’t as good a thepuriteas passion fruit tea, but it is still quite yummy. I love having it iced. I am really looking forward to drinking tons of iced tea again soon.

Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

I really liked this tea. It is certainly very unique and fun. I love trying new products like this. It tastes like nothing I have ever had before. Although it does have distinctive chai and coffee tastes. It is lightly sweet, lightly spicy, and has a light coffee taste (without the bitterness), but that is not to say that it is light on flavor. If you get a chance to try this product out, I definitely would. Especially if you like coffee but aren’t really crazy about the bitterness.

Caramel? Apples? Honeybush? What’s not to like? This tea has an awesome caramel apple flavor and the honeybush is a nice base. I really like this tea. Hopefully I can save a little for actual autumn.

Had a cup of this when I got home from class today. It was so yummy. It makes me want pancakes every time I drink it though – haha. Today I paired it with a blueberry muffin though which went well together.

I love the idea of pancake tea and I love the execution of the idea even more. I love that this tastes like pancakes and not just like a maple teas. I also love that the flavor doesn’t overwhelm the cup. Some flavors were meant to be in your face and others were meant to be subtle and in my opinion maple is one of those flavors.

I vote for more pancake teas (chocolate, blueberry, etc)! Anyone else with me on this one?

I vote for BOTH – this tea is amazing! How about a strawberry pancake tea?

Now I’m just making myself hungry!

Got this as a free sample. I liked it. It was a very nice cup of Jasmin green tea, but I didn’t really get any of the Mandarin flavor :(. It pretty much tasted like most other jasmine teas I have tasted. Regardless it was a decent cup of tea.

Dear Extra BOLD Masala Chai,

You are spicy and sweet and bold. You taste like some delicious baked good that my Grandma might make. In fact I bet you would be an excellent ingredient in baked goods. I wish I could drink you every morning as my morning boost. You are spicy with out being too intense for the morning. Thank you for being so awesome!

Magazine sample. This is a pretty standard cup of green tea. It is pretty good. Although it tastes pretty similar to Celestial Seasonings Green tea and that one is cheaper so if given the choice I would probably go with the Celestial Seasonings. But I’m not going to say no to a free cup of tea!

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.
