This dry ‘mix’ looks like Almond Cookie by SpecialTea and The Spice and Tea Exchange. It smells really close to it too! I’m excited to try this and my infusion is almost complete! (insert giddy/evil laugh here)

Oh yeah…THIS is NICE!

I’m thinking the Almond and spice is a little bit more prominent thank the black tea in the other tea companies take on this…and I’m not sure if there is as much ‘cookie’ type taste but regardless this is darn tasty! YUM!

I revisited this one again today and found it to be a little TOO creamy-like this time around. I still like the offering from compass but I’m going to lower the rating a tad…next time I think I will try infusing less of the loose leaf.

I can’t believe this one wasn’t in the steepster database!

This is a very creamy/vanilla-scented Earl Grey. I always look for twists on earl greys because I like to see how different they can be but still be classified as an earl grey. I know there are some people out there that stand by the phrase “Leave My Earl Alone” but not me…I love the variety, the creativeness, the uniqueness!

Again, this aroma is delightful! black tea, bergamot, creame, vanilla, ahhhh!

The taste is VERY creamy! The cream and vanilla both town down the bergamot and I really like this. Lately I have had a lot of EG’s that overdue it with the bergamot or use a really REALLY funky bergamot flavoring and it tends to be bitter or leave that strange aftertaste. Not this one! This is pretty darn good right here! VERY smooth…darn near the smoothest tea I have ever had. Some may say the bergamot isn’t strong enough but I really like the way this one plays out!

Delightful!

Hmmm, sounds interesting and yummy!

This is good and strong to get you thru the morning! It brews up fast and dark and has your typical black tea aroma. It offers a peppery-kick at the beginning of the sip and a semi-smooth finish!

I received some of this in a swap with a friend of mine.

Nice and fruity. I prefer green rooibos to red rooibos, the green rooibos seems to have more of a fresh, light taste instead of the woodsy taste I get from the red. I also find that there is less of that artificial saccharine-y taste to the green rooibos.

Very pleasant tropical flavor. Sweet. Nice.

Boiling 8 min or more

Lol! Nasty bunnies!

Veri-Tea

Bad bunnies! Bad! Hee hee hee!

Rabs

I second the lol! Bunny violation! Plus my mind went to Anya from Buffy which is an added bonus :)

SoccerMom

You better hurry up and get rid of the snow bunnies before they get dust bunnies. LOL

Ricky

I know these bunnies are evil! Bunny teas are not to be trusted!!! Luckily it seems Steepster only carries beach and snow bunnies.

AmazonV

hey, leave my bunnies outta this!

Ricky

Your bunny is just as guilty and you know it!

Rabs

::rabbit disapproves:: ;)

AmazonV

lol! man i wish lolbunnies was up right now so i could link that disapproving rabbit

Rabs

lolbunnies? LOL! I only know this one: http://www.disapprovingrabbits.com/

AmazonV

it was like this: http://icanhascheezburger.com/tag/lolbunnies/ but a whole site of them – my bunnies fail to disapprove or cute they just flop

Rabs

Oh teh cute! ::splodes::

Ricky

A year ago a friend of mine showed me the icanhascheezburger link… and I said really? Once again I laugh and go really!?!?

Oh bunnies… I think I have a picture of my friend’s bunny that looks just like that brown one . It was one stinky bunny.

Veri-Tea

Oh lolbunnies…. too cute, I can’t stand it…

Beach Bunny? Sounds a bit naughty…

Ricky

It’s a naughty tea ;)

Imagine this in Jacqueline’s cupboard? Oh boy….

Angrboda

She’d be the only one with an X-rated cupboard… o.O

Thanks for that mental image. Really. Thanks. :s

JacquelineM

I’m not sure what would happen if both Thomases and Jackee saw a Beach Bunny saunter into the cabinet! I am sure if it got out of hand the Samovar teas would intervene – they are very PC and would perform an intervention if not a citizen’s arrest!!!! And then my tea cabinet would also have a JAIL – I think on the third level near the food processor accessories.

Angrboda

Food processor accessories? O.o Your cupboard jail has torture things???

LiberTEAS

We have done several reviews of Compass’s teas on the Tea Review Blog.

JacquelineM

Angrboda – The Samovars would report me for that!! I better do some rearranging!

Ricky

Poor teas! You’re going to throw them into the food processor with all the shiny blades!?!? It’s a torture chamber! Even the beach bunny doesn’t deserve that!

Thanks for the heads up LiberTEAs =]

Angrboda

Someone ought to write the Saga of JacquelineM’s Cupboard… :p

JacquelineM

I think it would make a great graphic novel or animated short!!!

SoccerMom

Someone please send JacquelineM some beach bunny! I wanna read her review. :)

Ricky

Fwahaha ;)

JacquelineM

We can have the Beach Bunny and that tea that Alicia said was the Dita Von Teese of teas in the cupboard and see what happens!!! Personally I think Dita should give the Beach Bunny a makeover! Then they can do a show a la Crazy Horse Paris in my tea cupboard! Now that the Tiger is gone, I can turn his cage upside down to be a stage! Tupelo Honey will most likely perform too (if that isn’t a great burlesque name, I don’t know what is!!)

Ricky

Just wait until those Damn Freres Brothers joins the cupboard. Oh man, Jacqueline’s cupboard is going to come alive!

Doulton

What fun! Have you seen Pagnea Teas? They have a “NaughTea” and a “NaughTea Monkey” and a series of “Tea Enhancers”. Very SoCal!

This tea tastes quite similar to da.u.de’s Xaouen blend, although I found that one to be more floral while this one tastes more fruity. Also this blend lacks any green or white tea which seems to make it taste a bit sweeter and less vegetal.

This is another one of the teas I received in a trade with silvermage2000/Ashley.

The smell of this tea…wow, it’s just incredible. I open the bag and instantly I’m bombarded with scents of luscious mango, peaches, and papayas with undertones of rose. If they made a perfume out of this tea I would so totally buy it!

I’ve never had a green rooibos tea before – I’m not a huge fan of it’s red cousin, but people have said that the flavour is considerably different, so I was willing to give this tea a shot. The taste starts out similar to a red rooibos tea, though not as woody or tart, and then it changes into tropical fruity goodness (yum!). The tail end of the flavour has an refreshing taste with ‘bright’ notes. Seriously, I don’t know what words to use to describe them. There’s a lingering floral aftertaste, just a faint hint of rose, nothing artifical or unpleasent.

This tea gets a solid thumbs up!

Janefan

oh this sounds wonderful! I’ve never tried green rooibos, so your description is very helpful. added to shopping list

Jillian

Well the problem with a blended tea is that I’m not quite sure if what I’m tasting is the rooibos base or the added flavours. But I do think that I wouldn’t enjoy this tea as much if it were made with red rooibos. :)

Another Ashely tea…thanks Ashley!
I cannot express how much I LOVE the smell of this tea! It’s brilliant!
The tasting is lovely as well. If you can’t drink at work (LOL) this is a great substitute! :P

It’s like a raspberry, grape-E goodness with noticeable white tea taste, a tad floral and fun! I can almost feel the bubble starting to brew! teahee

gmathis

I have yet to find a white that makes me go oooh…but this one sounds like it could. Grapey. That’s what sold me.

I had a cup of this awhile ago. I think this is a pretty good med strength blend of black teas.

This looks like a dark black tea with light brown specks. I assume this this has a blend of black teas but did not see anything specific on the website. This smells like good black tea. I steeped it up. It tasted like black tea slightly strong without being extremely strong. With no bitterness or anything like that. I thought this was good.

i can see the ingredients. This mostly smells like orange. I brewed it up. The taste a strong sour orange with some chamomile and abit of mint. The orange is too strong and tart and overwelms the other ingredients. This just does not taste all that good. to be because of that.
