brought some to class tonight. for some reason, it was more bitter than i expected. i tried adding sugar, but the white sugar classes with the orange flavor. i might try rock sugar or honey next time.

made another soy latte today. i got frustrated that there wasn’t enough flavor and so my vigorous stirring tore apart the tea bag. since i would have to filter it anyway, i heated up the resulting cup to get extra flavor.

so in the end, it tasted pretty good, but i would hate to have to sift my latte every time just to get enough flavor. =/

I like =] spicy enough to keep me interested, soothing enough to keep me calm.

also found out that it pairs well with chocolate =]

Just bought I box of this. I tastes pretty much like the Bigelow Orange and Spice, at least I couldn’t notice much based on my memory. If anything, I think there’s something a little stronger here, either more orange oil or one of the spices is stronger. Anyway, I like both of the teas, but not orange black teas. Iono why, but I’m glad I bought this! (and at $2, why not?)

One of my favorite cheap bag teas. I am a vanilla hog, and they lay the vanilla on thick. A good afternoon tea, summer or winter. I also think it makes a decent iced tea. There are better vanilla teas on the market, but for the price and the ease, it is a good thing to have in the pantry.

For a cheap, bag tea this is some pretty decent stuff. The only issue I have with it is that… well, it isn’t really tea! There is a nice honey taste. A nice vanilla taste. But where or where is the tea taste? I can make hot honey and vanilla on my own. The Camomile is in there, but still… no tea!
I would love to see this, exactly as it is, but with an Irish Breakfast Tea hiding underneath. Blending it myself was tasty.
It is an ok herb drink, and a tasty snack drink. I would buy it again.

Yup, having this again. I’m starting to see a pattern developing. Peach Passion followed by Sleepytime Extra. Not a bad pattern, but I wish it was with a yummy loose leaf.

Drinking this again because yeah, I can’t sleep. I was exhausted by 9:30 this evening and I went to bed early which of course meant that I woke up in the middle of the night completely awake. Wow, my sleep schedule is really messed up so maybe I’ll just force myself to stay awake until tonight so I can get it back on track. I think I could do that since it is already 4 am.

Oh and as an aside, I’ve been inspired by the Steepster Book Club and am watching the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on Netflix right now (the BBC television series, not the movie although I want to see that one too). It really is great if you haven’t seen it, the book is really good too!

This is much better than the Tension Tamer. I like to have this tea around just for the days when I can’t sleep, like tonight. It usually helps but I may need another mug tonight for it to take effect.

Time for bed – I am taking a certification test tomorrow, but all the mate and black tea I have had today I feel slightly wired…which is strange because I usually drink coffee all day and don’t have trouble sleeping.. oh well, made this with 2 teabags for 2 cups of water with 6 pieces of rock sugar. (why do I count the pieces of rock sugar??)

This tea is very light and has a slight mint taste, not too overwhelming. It is great with sugar, but does not hold up to milk. The valerian root is helpful for relaxation and is nice to drink before bed.

Even though I was expecting tea that tasted like a candy cane, I still enjoyed this. It’s a subtle-tasting and comforting green tea with a peppermint aftertaste.

This was my go to when CS discontinued Strawberry Fields.
Respectable in its own right, but toss in some taste of the islands (coconut/pineapple) and I ended up finding myself addicted to a whole different tea (even if I still have a soft spot for Strawberry Fields) :P

Oh my!
Uber strong…so much so you can get 2 cups out of a tea bag (whistles innocently).
Still how can you argue when its chai and it has caramel in it? Can’t say I really appreciated the chocolate but lovely nonetheless. And, uhm, maybe we accidently drank the box empty in a week. (oops)

My encounter with almond sunset was a fluke. After raspberry chocolate bliss left me in highschool (taking english toffee and vanilla hazelnut, its sisters in afterdinner tea happiness, with it), I would from time to time try another. I admit selection was made mostly on CS artwork (there I’ve said it).

Almond sunset didn’t win me over that way. Its art was kinda boring. But I gave it a go, and OMGosh it rocked. With milk (like most teas I fancy these days), it was sweet almond amazingness. Even if that equates it with cyanide,….well, I was prepared to go. :)

Can’t make this one without everyone knowing.
Tastes of buttery mellow mintiness.
Turned a coworker onto this one, which is double badness since i don’t get back
to the US enough. :P

How do they make a sugarcookie flavored tea (wo/ a cookie crumb in sight)?
Lovely,light tea that does well with milk. Especially nice that CS teas always can be
made in a mega mug (not like stash teas that get watery). And with milk thistle,
see ma, tea is good for me. So if you want to give your liver some love, sugar cookies are the way forward :)
