Had this to warm up and this cold, rainy day.

Backlogging from the weekend
I had some sugar sprinkles in my apartment from baking a cake and I figure I would try them in this tea as I never have sugar in my tea and never have sugar in my house. Ick, bleh, yuck…. Still hate sugar in my tea! It tastes flat and sweet and tasteless. Maybe I am doing it wrong, but than again I don’t like soda, or really sweet juices so probably just personal preference.
Backlogging from the weekend
I had this with a dab of chocolate ice cream. I have heard other people say ice cream is good in tea and they were right! This was so amazing!! It tastes like one of those 7 layer dessert bars with coconut, chocolate, graham crackers and caramel. Mmmmm so good. Will definitely repeat!!!
Had this tea this afternoon as a cure for a sucky morning… Perfect remedy :)
This is one of the teas I one in the SororiTEA Sisters Blog Contest! Thanks!!!
This tea smells delicious! It also tastes yummy like toffee. Very good. I think this tea might be good with a splash of milk :).I don’t think I steeped it long enough though, it was slightly weak. I am gonna hold off on rating it.
This was also the first tea I have ever used a T-sac to make. It went very well – no roobios in the bottom of my cup = yay!!
This made me jittery today for some reason – now I wish I had a nice herbal tea to settle me down
Sipped on this tea this morning while picking out classes for next semester – somehow it is that time of year already
Had this with breakfast again this morning – mmm. I am curious to try this with milk. I am throughly enjoying it plain and simple though. Really a great breakfast tea!!!
Another tea from the SororiTEA Contest! Thank you!!!
I thought this sounded like a nice tea to take me out of a Sunday night homework funk, and I was right. This tea is positively lovely!
The tea smells very sweet and it tastes warm and rich and buttery and sweet. It actually reminds me of this weird thing my mom used to do when I was little where she would put butter and sugar on rice to get me to eat it. This tastes exactly like that! Which sounds completely disgusting, but it is a nice sweet/savory combo. I really enjoyed this tea a lot!
I got this tea as a bonus with my winnings from the SororiTEA sisters blog contest – thanks LiberTEAS !!!!!!!!!
I decided this would be a good tea to have with breakfast this morning. I like more plain teas in the morning and I wanted some energy to get some studying done – yay midterms :(
The only yerba mate I have had is malted chocomate from 52 Teas (ironically also won in a contest – haha) and I have been wanting to try more. This looks way different than the 52 Teas one! It smells roasty kind of like coffee beans, it also has this odd kind of salty smell to it.
It tastes very roasty and kind of earthy. It also tastes very healthy, which probably sounds negative but it was in fact quite delectable!!! Great way to start my Saturday!
Another tea from the SororiTEA Sisters Blog Contest – Thanks!!!!!!
I was really excited to try this one so I thought it would be the perfect way to kick off the weekend :)
First off the blueberries are huge! All the dried blueberries I have seen as like half the size of rasins and these are more like double the size of rasins!! Mmmm!!! I love blueberries and blueberry pastries and blueberry teas so this tea is pretty much an automatic winner for me!! It smells and tastes very much like blueberry which is great. The only thing is I wish it had more cream cheese flavor – I am not really getting any, but I enjoyed the blueberry flavor so much I didn’t really miss it :)
Thank god I saved this tea for later in the day… it helped prevent me from picking up the computer and shaking it til Microsoft access worked properly.
This tea is a very yummy Moroccan mint type tea (which I love!) Glad I had this sample to try!!! Okay back to mircosoft access now :(
I keep debating whether this tea is actually the tea I am buying or whether I am miss logging. Regardless it is a bagged darjeeling tea from either lipton or twinnings but I am not sure which and I always forgot to look and then I think I remember and then I am not sure – ugh! Okay rant over.
Regardless of what brand this tea is it is very nice to have in the morning to wake me up for work or class. For a little while the water where I buy it was a little bit cooler and the tea had this wonderful honey quality that I miss but oh well. It is still yummy!
Also today when I was buying this I noticed there were these odd little things that looked like ketcup packets but they were lemon juice packets – has anyone ever tried these? I was curious but I don’t drink lemon in hot tea.
Looking through steepster trying to find my tea really made me want more tea but I have to be strong and conserve my second cup as I am at work for many more hours -haha.
I just received my prize from the SororiTEA Sisters Blog contest yesterday – Thanks LiberTEAS !!!!
I decided to try out one of my new teas to recover from a brutal exam. And this tea sounded nice a happy! It tastes delicious. It tastes like white tea with a hint of melon and a little bit like honey but that may just be part of the tea or the melon flavor. I throughly enjoyed this tea, and I am feeling much more peaceful now :)
Used this as motivation to study for my history exam… It was a nice cup :)
Had this with breakfast today – great way to start my day!!!!!
Had this when I got home from class yesterday – mmm :)
I made a pot of this the other night and had a cup hot and then put the rest of the fridge. This was the last of my Art of Tea dessert sampler that I had to try. I must say I have loved every tea so far and this one was no exception!
This tea is all about the banana! It smells like BANANA and it tastes like it too, but I really enjoy banana and banana bread and banana runts and pretty much all banana flavored things, so that was a good thing for me. I am not really getting much chocolate but I am also not getting that “I am trying really hard to be chocolate but I’m just not” flavor that I get from most chocolate flavors. It also tastes a bit of roobios but I love roobios especially flavored roobios.
On another random note this tea tastes pink to me and yes I know colors don’t have flavors but if they did this tea is what pink would taste like. I think I might think that because it has this fruity sweet flavor that I associate with pink candy that I don’t know the flavor of, but its yummy!
This tea is great both hot and iced and while I don’t think I would drink it every day I am definitely looking forward to the rest of my hefty sample.
Had this today as a sample at teavana – it was pretty heavily sweetened, but it was pretty good. It was nicely spicy. For some reason I found it to taste a bit like rum which I thought was odd. But it was decent. I would have to have more of it and have it non-sweetened to more properly rate it.
Okay that is so weird I was just looking through my old tasting notes and I saw this tea which I did not know I logged. I had this last weekend. And definitely enjoyed it! I was surprised that I had previously given it a 56 and said it was too sour because I was pleasantly surprised at how un-sour this tea was…
Mmmm so relaxing and delicious!!!
Brought some of this to work today – sadly the water cooler was running out of water so I only got 1/3 of a mug but its okay because its almost the weekend which means more time to drink tea!!!!
I really enjoy this tea. I really enjoy rose teas in general (which is not something I would have expected). I love the pepperiness of this tea especially – even though I am not sure where it comes from. I am sorry there wasn’t more to drink, but it certainly perked me up for my last bit of work!
Had a cup of this today while watching a movie and eating some popcorn. Due to the popcorn and a very long day I will more fully review this later but I can say this – it’s yummy!
Mmmm… this tea is superb with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! It is minty and smooth, and a little bit chocolately! I really enjoyed this tea. I am however extremely confused by the inclusion of apples??? But oh well it works!
