This tea is PERFECT.
I’ve only got enough leaves left for one more cup… Sad, sad little cup. Maybe I’ll save it for next weekend when I order 2 oz more. :D
Here’s another one from VariaTEA. She didn’t care for it, but I don’t mind it. The spices are quite nice, and u can actually taste the pumpkin
I know the retail stores have a bad rep, but I’m happy VariaTEA had a few samples to share so I could try Teavana with an open mind.
Uh-oh. This is my second to last cup and I don’t plan on getting more for awhile. I shall savour every drop.
And there goes another of the samples from JustJames! Now my cupboard is at 88, which is nearly half of what it was in the summer. That’s crazy!
I think this is another one I’ll have to stock up on, somehow, at some point. It’s creamy, with strawberry and smells delicious. I don’t even mind the rose petals – it just adds a touch to the fragrance without making it perfumy.
I wish I’d realized that this was a black/green blend as I steeped it at near boiling, but this isn’t bitter at all. It’s just fragrant, and fruity and perfect.
I couldn’t wait to have this again, and now it’s gone.
Ahh.. C’est la vie. :P
Ahh.. C’est la vie. :P(Also, this sorta reminds me of Butiki’s Caramel Vanilla Assam. Except it doesn’t re-steep as nicely).
Thank you VariaTEA for this sample! I sorta jumped on it as soon as I opened the package – it just looked so good!
And I thought it was pretty good too. It was maybe slightly lacking next to DT’s White Chocolate Frost, but if you let it cool a little the flavours sorta pop out a little and it tastes good.
So good that I almost took advantage of Teavana’s 30% sale. Eeek. I’m terribly impulsive, but I did feel a bit of satisfaction when I closed the browser (for now) and moved on. :P
Anyway, I have one more cup of this left, and I’m certain I’ll enjoy it.
And what better tea to follow up the Choconut Oolong with, than this? It’s a cup of pure minty YES. It’s my favourite bed-time tea at the moment, although Mango Lassi is a close second. They’re both perfect for different moods, so I guess I don’t really have to choose.
Goodbye. Good riddance.
Not added to my shopping list.
And I’m going to do a dance for this sipdown. The cup was ok – it was better than throwing it out, but there’s not much going for it. I just wanted to finish my sample to make double-triple sure (as I had high hopes).
And that’s another matcha gone! (81) :O I try to drink one cup a day (a big one with 2 scoops!) and only keep 4 flavours open at a time to help out with the freshness.
What did I think? I like this – it’s creamy and sweet and enjoyable for times I don’t want to be overwhelmed by flavour (i.e., pumpkin matcha, or bubblegum). Would I get it again? Maybe. There are so many other options out there, but, I would’ve say no to more.
I had a sample of this before, direct from Nina’s Paris, but JustJames surprised me with just a little more. And I’m happy he did. I still think this is my favourite from Nina’s Paris. I just love the caramel and vanilla.
I may have to pick up some for myself. :)
