Backlog:

I really have enjoyed all the teas that I’ve tried from Bird’s Eye Tea, and I was actually surprised at how much I really enjoyed this one. I am not usually a big fan of chamomile but this is a really good night time tisane.

The spearmint is a subtle note, and the licorice-y tones are faint. I guess I’d like a little more licorice, really, because I do love licorice. But, it’s a really tasty tisane even with the mellow flavors!

I really enjoyed this Floral Focus Oolong. One of the best teas I’ve gotten from Bird’s Eye Tea thus far. The Osmanthus enhances the natural peach-like tones of the Oolong, and highlights the floral notes.

A nice floral tea – sweet, but not too sweet, not perfume-y or soapy … just pleasant to sip. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/27/floral-focus-oolong-blend-from-birds-eye-tea/

drank Xocolatl by Bird's Eye Tea
6770 tasting notes

I had this a while back – straight-up and it was chocolate-E but also spice-E. Today I had this with a double-shot of the loose mixture and added Raw Agave. With this addition – this flavor was more of a chocolate milk with a bit of spice. While I did like this flavor while I was drinking it I wasn’t overly fond of the aftertaste. Still good while drinking, tho!

Special thanks to Liberteas for this one!

drank Honeybush Spice by Bird's Eye Tea
4322 tasting notes

This is lovely. One of the nicest honeybush and spice blends I’ve tasted … I think I like this one especially because of the combination of licorice root and star anise in this. I love the strength of the sweet, zesty licorice-y taste in this … it’s strong, but it doesn’t overpower everything else. I taste the cinnamon, the cardamom, the orange, and the ginger. And the honeybush. This is warm and cozy to sip.

drank Awake by Bird's Eye Tea

Alrighty! I am almost finished with a mug of this tisane, and I can say that it is DEFINITELY invigorating me, but I don’t feel jittery … in fact, I feel calm. I don’t feel stressed even though I’ve quite a bit to get done and I probably WOULD feel stressed without the assistance of tulsi and brahmi, although admittedly, I didn’t even know what brahmi was until I started reading about it on the Bird’s Eye Newsletter: http://blog.birdseyetea.com/post/35083367109/november-2012-tea-newsletter

All I do know is that this herbaceous, slightly minty, earthy tasting tisane with a tingly berry aftertaste has rendered me awake, and that is just what the name of the tea promises.

Maté is awesome because it has tryptophan, which is a calming agent. Really good stuff when mixed with the caffeine in maté for concentration and work :)

I always drink a cup before a test at school. Love the stuff! This one sounds good for sure! :)

I really liked this … my only real complaint would be that I wished there was a bit more of the currant flavor … but the overall cup was tasty.

It’s definitely a clever blend!

This stuff is seriously amazing! SERIOUSLY amazing. If you’ve ever had a traditional cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate than you’ve had something similar to this, because this tastes so much like the hot chocolate that my Latina friends would serve in their homes when I was younger. Sweet with chocolate – rich and creamy, but also with enough spice to keep it from being the cloyingly rich, sickeningly sweet cup of hot chocolate that comes from one of those individually wrapped, foil-lined pouches from the grocery store.

There is so much to the flavor here – I taste every element! I taste a hint of rose, I taste a very subtle note of chamomile, The chocolate is rich and has it’s own unique dimensions with the roasted and the raw chocolate notes. I taste the ginger and cinnamon and chipotle, and I even taste just a hint of star anise (for those of you who don’t like anise, you needn’t worry, it is so very subtle that I doubt it’s presence would disrupt your enjoyment) … every element works so harmoniously with the other ingredients, and the result is something better than the individual parts could produce.

Amazing. AHHH-mazZZING!

Wow, a 100! I’m going to need to add this one to my shopping list.
