Had this today at the dinning hall. Nothing very exciting, but I needed some tea after my 3rd exam this week.

Had this today on the way to work. I wasn’t in the mood for black tea so I decided to switch from my normal darjeeling tea. This tea isn’t great but it is quick and only costs 85 cents so it works.

It has a very week green tea flavor. I think this is because this tea is a blend of green and white tea which makes it have a lighter flavor. I personally prefer green and white tea flavored.

Sadly I got busy and my tea got cold before I could finish it but it was decent while it lasted.

I was really in the mood for green tea this morning so I got this on my way to a meeting. It was okay. It is pretty basic and very light. It never really gets a strong green tea taste, but it did solve my craving of green tea.

Backlogging. Sunday late at night.
My mom has a box of Sleepytime Vanilla from her many purchases from when she visited the Celestial Seasoning’s plant in Denver, CO while vacationing and visiting my sister Kath’s ex-fiance. This is not the first time I’ve had this herbal at her place. I like it pretty well for a non-caffeinated bagged herbal before bed. Better than plain Sleepytime, if my memory of it is correct. The vanilla mutes the flavors into a better mix.

Heavy on the cardamom, and too light on the other spices. I wanted more spicy ginger, but the cardamom overwhelmed.

Love Sleeptyime Tea. Drink it fairly often at night, especially in fall and winter, along with Grandma’s Tummy Mint. Sleepytime has wonderful aroma, great flavor. Gave it to my kids growing up and is one of those yummy comfort food type of treats.

Love yummy comfort food – and just recently found a whole new category – comfort teas!

Like Umbrellathorn I also like this tea and the cinnamon qualities and I also don’t let it steep very long… maybe 2 minutes max. Nice during cold winter days.

I didn’t think I’d like this because of its sweet smell, so I didn’t add any sweetener (normally I add a teaspoonful of raw honey or rock cane sugar to almost everything). It doesn’t taste as sweet as it smells; I mostly tasted the hibiscus. Tolerable, but Celestial Seasonings makes better.

Finishing up my box of Morning Thunder by making my homemade version of 52teas Malted ChocoMate. It is really, really tasty this morning. I’m a bit sad that I’m out of this tea now, I would love to have another mug of this!

I used this to make my version of the Malted ChocoMate. 1 bag, 1 Tablespoon chocolate malt powder, hot water, and milk. Pretty close to the real thing.

I decided to make my own version of 52teas Malted ChocoMate since they are out of the blend on their website and I absolutely love it. I added 3 spoons of chocolate malt powder to hot water, steeped 3 bags of Morning Thunder in the concoction for 5 minutes, and added a healthy splash of milk. Awesome! It is very similar in taste to 52teas version, however my version is milk chocolate while theirs is dark chocolate. I’m giving this tea a ratings boost because I can use this two ways and it is much easier to come by than waiting for a reblend from 52teas.

how resourceful of you! I’ve been wanting to try morning thunder anyway. Good to know it’s so versatile :-)

I am SO tired! I didn’t sleep much last night, I was up late reading the Time Traveler’s Wife. (Very good, but definitely a tear jerker, not for the faint of heart.) I am so tired that tea didn’t sound appealing to me, but I knew that if I didn’t have some type of caffeine I would be paying for it with a massive headache later. I chose this because it has caffeine and is bagged, I’m much too lazy to properly make tea this morning. I like this tea with a bit of milk, it doesn’t really need sweetener thanks to the natural sweetness of the mate. The caffeine isn’t really helping my alertness much, I think a nap may be in order before I tackle cleaning my apartment and writing a linguistics essay.

I did the same thing with that book!!! I couldn’t put it down. I responded very emotionally to it too – I loved it.

Why am I drinking this at 8pm? Wow, probably not a great idea. Oh well….

I was pretty nervous about this tea because it is a black/mate blend and the directions say to steep it for 5-7 minutes. I never steep my black teas for more than 3-4 minutes. I went ahead and followed the package directions, praying that it wouldn’t come out bitter. It actually didn’t. The bags smell very much like a black tea and the smell after steeping reminds me of my old English Breakfast. There is a natural sweetness from the mate that makes the tea feel a bit delicate, but still is substantial enough for a breakfast tea. I love mate in general because of its caffeine kick without the jitters and without the crash later in the day. I think this would be a great tea for someone who wanted to try mate, but didn’t want to commit to buying loose leaf. The mate is definitely the starring player in this one.

Olor y sabor penetrantes. Es casi un vicio, mas poco accesible en latitudes caribeñas. Coincido con Celinus, no es recomendable endulzarlo.

After reading a post by TeaEqualsBliss about a Summertime Earl Grey, I just had to drink something. As the post was about a peach-flavored earl grey (which sounds amazing!), and I love fruity teas, I decided to break out my Celestial Seasonings fruit sampler (I know, they’re not real tea).
Following my thoughts from the last time I logged this, I microwaved the water longer (still no kettle) and just left the tea bag in. It is a much stronger, but still mellow flavor. Someone mentioned it tastes like a sour peach gummy, which I sort of agree with. I think it would do well iced with a hint of sugar.

I’ll admit I was hoping for a slightly stronger cup—perhaps I need to up the microwave time. Oh, for the days when I will have a kettle…
Anywho, a nice, light peachy flavor, with some other unidentifiable savory flavors. Would taste wonderful iced and lightly sweetened, I’d imagine. Note to self: hotter temperature next time.

This tea is yummmmmy. It’s different from other spiced rooibos teas, and I like this version better. It tastes a little more down to earth than say good earth, though both are good. Looking at the box, it looks like the ingredient labeled sweet piquante pepper flavor is the only major thing different. Mmmmmm, yummmmmmmy. =]

Tasty and sweet, but nothing special. I was given this as a gift, and although I would drink it if it was served at a friend’s house or accept it as another gift, I probably won’t buy it on my own. I grew up with Wild Berry Zinger, and that one has a lot more flavor and, well, zing. The teabags are also hard to fish out of the mug. Why no string?

I like this infusion a lot. The herbs taste quite natural and fresh for a bagged variety. I’m also a sucker for packaging so no doubt the cute Teddy also helps…

Sipping this one again tonight and finding that it’s got a sort of sickly sweet aftertaste in the back of my throat. Otherwise I still like the tea, but the way the taste just sticks at the back of my throat is a little… ick. I don’t know if it’s the chamomile or the flavourings for the honey or vanilla.

It might be the chamomlle. I haven’t tried this particular tea but some chamomile teas I’ve tried have been almost sickly sweet-tasting.

Usually I don’t like going out and buying teas without first checking Steepster to see what’s been said about them (although I always get a little excited when I find teas that haven’t even been added to the database yet), but I decided to just go for it and got this one. I wanted a herbal, but I also wanted a vanilla. And they had vanilla rooibos’, and vanilla white teas, and other chamomiles, and then a lady came by and slapped a half-off price on this one. I figured it was a sign.

The flavour’s very light, and mostly chamomile, but there’s a sweetness of slightly-artificial-tasting honey in there. The vanilla is more in the smell, although I didn’t really drink it with a Steepster Review in mind, so I suppose I wasn’t really paying attention or searching for it in the taste. I remember smelling it though, and picking up a good vanilla and strong honey, and thinking “I bet this would be wonderful iced”.

After drinking it, the flavour’s probably too light for that, and if you made it double-strength, the chamomile would just overwhelm the honey (and supposed vanilla).

It didn’t make me sleepy, but that may just be because I’ve already felt tired most of the day. Didn’t get much sleep last night. I downed two cups of Murchie’s Assam Pure, then passed out on the couch no more than three minutes later; I woke up about four hours later, finished my statistics homework, and stumbled off to college. Came home, bought this—I like it, but not enough that I think I’ll get it again when it’s done (honey and vanilla are a good IDEA, but they’re sort of muddled in this, and I don’t like it much with the chamomile; maybe I’ll try CS’s Honey Vanilla White Tea next, that looked promising!). I’m still on the lookout for my perfect vanilla caffeine free drink for bedtime (although caffeine doesn’t do all too good a job of keeping me up anyways, but). I actually went to IGA with the intention of picking up a vanilla rooibos, but came home with this instead. Hm.

Sweet, light, oddly fruity, honey taste, but vanilla’s only in the smell. Ended up leaving the teabag in there the whole time. I took it out after five minutes, but decided that the flavour was so light that I’d just leave it in.
