Near a sipdown (two cups left)…
I remember this getting cold and then tasting really gross. Meh.
(I just remembered I have episodes of The Voice to catch up on too – and that made me really happy! Oh, and Bones, HIMYM, Intelligence, Archer, and Agents of SHIELD! That’s a little overwhelming – but also really exciting!)
Sometimes just because you CAN do something, doesn’t mean you SHOULD . For instance, just because you CAN eat four Krispy Kreme donuts in one car ride does not mean you should eat them. Or just because you CAN chug two bottles of water in under a minute, does not mean you should. I, of course, am speaking in the hypothetical here however should you decide to do those things and just happen to feel quite nauseous, you may want to drink a mint tea. Perhaps one like this tea. Just a thought.
I stashed a box of this at work for when I just really, really need some comfort tea. Which was today. Brewed it up in the Timolino and left it uncovered so I could drink it some time today because that sucker keeps everything NUCLEAR HOT. It’s bagged tea, but it’s damn good. I don’t expect much of my bags and this delivers. Creamy, mint, soothing.
I downed two cups of this tea last night before retiring. Obviously it worked, since I could not even muster up the energy to write a tasting note!
The flavor is really not bad at all for a functional tea, and I like the idea that I am consuming catnip—in honor of HRH Emperor Oliver, may he rest in peace.
So if I plan on keeping up this balancing act of one cup caffeine-free tea for every caffeinated cup I have, I am really going to have to find some more caffeine-free options to get excited about. I was going to have Lime Chiffon again but I had that so much recently that I decided to go with something new. This seemed like a plain and simple choice that would be enjoyable enough. It is minty and sweet and has a dash of vanilla which makes for a nice cup. Nothing to write home about but a good compliment to my cup of Paris :)
Back in Florida so I am reunited with my Candy Cane Lane and Nutcracker Sweet teas. Seeing as it is midnight, I of course reached for the caffeine free option (though I don’t think caffeine really affects me), and it tastes just like a candy cane. Delicious!
In other news, DAVIDs officially launched their March tea and it is “Hibiscus Punch”. Why?!?! Does DAVIDs really need more hibiscus-heavy teas? I think not! So far, 2014 has been a disappointing year as far as tea of the month goes.
If you’re looking to an alternative to Fast Lane, check out Zest Tea. It has even more caffeine and it’s pretty damn good tea.
This tea is like a treat when left to cool entirely. Better than a candy cane! The bagged aspect creates a somewhat dusty note, but the mint and vanilla make up for that. I quite enjoyed my cup, and I certainly wasn’t expecting to. Then again, I have a soft spot more mint green teas :)
A friend gave me half a dozen bags or so. I’m not sure that I’d want any more than that at one time, so I’ll have to go halfsies with her next time as well!!
So I totally meant to drink Sugar Cookie and not Sugar Plum, as I rummaged through the tea bags that VariaTEA was nice enough to send me, but whoops?
This was actually ok. I was worried it’d be a little too tart so I added a little bit of sugar and it was pretty great. I drank a mason jar of! Awesome. :D
Tisane of the afternoon here. For some reason I keep forgetting I have a box of this, but it really is a good rooibos even though it comes in a teabag. ;)
I used two teabags in one mug of tea to get a little extra flavor. The vanilla is nice and creamy here and this was very enjoyable with soymilk and some rock sugar. I like this better than a lot of more expensive rooibos blends I’ve had. Earthy and smooth.
I got sucked into another episode of MI-5, so I decided to brew some of this Sleepytime Vanilla to follow upon my earlier Harvest Chamomile. Not quite a steep-off, but I did discover that I seem to enjoy the Honey Vanilla Chamomile (aka Harvest Chamomile) a bit more than the Sleepytime Vanilla. I attribute this to the presence of mint in the latter and the absence in the former. Still this is pretty good for a bedtime brew…
Flavors: Flowers, Vanilla
Based on the ingredients list, this is what I am drinking, although my four-bag sample pack is labeled “Harvest Chamomile” and is of unknown provenance and age. Anyway, this tastes pretty good. A nice change from Sleepytime in that there is no spearmint or any other mint whatsoever in this blend.
Here the honey and vanilla flavors are rich accompaniments to the soothing scent and flavor of good old chamomile. This is similar to Sleepytime Vanilla, of course, because of the vanilla and the chamomile, but there is more honey here and less vanilla. And best of all no mint!
This is a pleasant and calming chamomile blend, and I have found in general that Celestial Seasonings uses a honey note to my liking. My favorites from this company always seem to contain either honey or vanilla…
Flavors: Flowers, Honey, Vanilla
I have a bit of backlog from last night, but nothing all too long, so yay for that!
This one was intended to be my last tea of the night; I felt exhausted and just wanted something caffeine free and sweet to close off on. It definitely satisfied those requirements and was super tasty. Except then I was suddenly hit with a wave of energy which resulted in more tea drinkage and my being awake until around 3AM…
Started with a cold a couple of days ago and woke up this morning unable to taste much of anything … Ugh. I don’t know if it’s a change of the weather thing, or a true cold, but I’m so over it already!
I reached for this because I was hoping to be able to taste it being it’s a bit spicy. The first chai I reached for I will have to rate later, my own fault for thinking it might work (Lipton pyramid I picked up due to an awesome sale)- I should have known better but with a lack of local sources I caved.
I can faintly taste the spice and the sweetness of this tea this morning.. my normal sugar added to this. At least it’s something compared to the nothingness of my first attempt. Wish this had a little caffeine but I believe my first cup this morning did, so I should be set to go.
Glad to have something quick, easy, and with a punch this morning.. Hoping to gain some taste buds back as the day goes on.
Mmm, I really like this one! Two days ago it was one of my last teas for the night, just as something that was really relaxing and consistently yummy.
I seem to be a touch off my “plum” flavoured things kick, but still really quite good! I guess I was a bit worried that now that I’d not drinking plum flavoured things daily anymore that I wouldn’t like this as much – happy to be proved wrong.
I really like this tea. I love peach teas and this one was one of the better ones I have had. It has hibiscus in it, which I am not usually a fan of, but it is definitely hardly noticeable. The chamomile and peach notes are definitely the prominent flavors and make this a very enjoyable tea.
