sooo this was the other tea i had last night before passing out because i figured honey was good…and no caffeine was probably good. the best part about this tea was that it got me to my goal of 95 teas in July! woot woot!

i remember this being pretty tasty. not overly rooibos like but with a sweetness to it and at times an almost spicy note…but not really. not sure how to describe it. either way, this was a decent end cap to yesterday!

Final Count: 97 (surprise cavo teas!)

OMGsrsly

Yay! Go Sil go! :)

VariaTEA

95!! Congrats!! And I am glad my tea helped you get there :P

Sil

now… a month to get through 5 more..though i may make a stretch goal of 10 since september will be a bust for me..already back up to 97 lol

Cavocorax

I only sent two at least! And if you cold-steeo our surprise tea, I’m sure you’d get through it fairly soon! (So I don’t feel bad about it at all! Hahah). I think after getting through 80+ teas in one month, FIVE in another should be ok… Even if they’re 1 oz each or something like that.

Sil

it’ll be 5 to go down…but that’s in addition to the teas i buy. hahahaha. there’s 7 coming from teavivre, and i know i’ll be picking up at least 5 from tea gschewrwer…and there are 3 coming from verdant for the blends club haha

An early spring warmth had us craving something sweet, fruity, and possibly iced. After smelling a couple of Ceylon Tea Bush’s fruity options, my sister settled on an iced Mango Tropics with shot of peach syrup.

It was sweet, fruity, and it was iced, but its flavour left us both wanting a little more. It certainly wasn’t good enough to convince me to buy any for home use, but my husband enjoyed it, in fact preferring it to the Passion Berry he had ordered.

It was sweet, it was strongly flavoured, it was fruity, it was pretty good. Not good enough to convince me to buy any of the leaves as I have other fruity teas at home that make wonderful iced teas, but it was pretty good.

Side note: my husband also ordered one, and ended up trading with my sister for her Mango Tropical Iced tea, as he found it a little too heavy a flavour for his liking.

Cold brewed this for 4 hours and I think I prefer it hot. The aftertaste is 100% sweet honey but leading up to that point it is a whole lot of rooibos. Good, but not as good as when brewed properly.

I had my final interview today with Staples and I am hoping all went well. It was earlier than I am used to waking up lately so I have myself some extra motivation by deciding that after the interview I would drop in at the bakery that sells this tasty tea. So, on my way home, I picked up a tin and brewed it up when I got back. Now I am sipping on this deliciously sweet rooibos treat. Yum! Glad to finally have it in my cupboard.

Staples?! Actual Staples?! OMG I LOVE STAPLES I COULD LIVE THERE.

VariaTEA

Haha. Yes, actual staples. I may be their newest employee :).

If you ever come to visit in Canada, I can just take you to work with me.

And then just leave me there forever.

That would be amazing.

Smooth and sweet and oh-so-delicious. The tea I reach for when I am at my friends house but soon I will be able to get a tin of my very own when I return to Toronto :)

Due to the temperature outside being unseasonably warm, I took over the extra food I got to store in a friend’s deep freezer. Typically this friend comes to me to have tea and study but instead she made me a pot of tea. This was a blend she got from her brother for Christmas and though I worried it would be too rooibosy for my taste, I gave her the benefit of the doubt that it would be a tasty cup. Furthermore, it had a beautiful honey smell that I could not pass up.

Tastewise, this was a delicious cup of liquid honey. Honey Bee is called to mind but it was no where near as cloying because the rooibos toned down the sweetness. A delicious blend that I will definitely be grabbing some more of when I go back to Thornhill.
