This chocolate and cherry wonder hit the spot for me today. I’m so ready for a vacation, even if it’s just one precious day off from work when I am not sick! I’d love to try this iced, but it’s so cold in my office today I just need warmth.

I really do enjoy this sweet cuppa. :)

Chocolate and cherry – what a great pairing! This tastes like those cordials from chocolate boxes, more dark chocolate than milk, which is my preference. The cherry is slightly artificial tasting, but sometimes that’s the taste you get in a box anyway! It’s delish regardless and the black tea base is a great AM wakeup.

I love that you can re-infuse these. I’ve been working on one all day; I’m on my second infusion and will finish up soon, infusing for a third time and the ride home. I cold brew in a 20 oz cup, so that’s even more than a usual mug size. These are perfect for summer!

These are ingenious and delicious! I placed my first order from Culinary Teas last week and opted for these as they are on sale in May. These work well – I also mixed with matcha powder (more on that later). I actually don’t let them sit for the recommended 4-5 hours, I just brew for an hour or so and go. Delish! Cold mint green tea has to be one of my favorite things on Earth.

Had my eye on these thanks for letting me know!

I’m not that impressed with this tea. :( First, it doesn’t taste at all like buttered anything, let alone rum. The black tea doesn’t even taste all that great. Second, it doesn’t smell like anything! Butterscotch is normally a stronger scent – think Butterscotch Lifesavers – but this is Weak. I’m finishing the cup, but I’m glad I opted for a sample size over a larger version. The other teas I’ve had from Culinary Teas are delish, but this misses the mark.

SimplyJenW

I agree with you on this one. I was so disappointed. I am pretty sure I sent it to a new home…. ;)

Infusin_Susan

That’s too bad. Weak tea is one of my least favorite things.

KeenTeaThyme

It’s entering my “tea swap” bin so it will end up in a new home… Weak tea is the worst, agreed!

OMG – I love this iced, but right now I’m enjoying a hot cuppa. This blend of strawberry and green tea is just HAPPY. :) Please see other notes, this is a fave of mine!

I love, love, love this one! I haven’t had it in a while – didn’t want to run right through the tin – but opted for it this morning. So glad I did. The strawberry flavor tastes real (not like an additive, or artificial flavor) and is real strong.

Please see other notes – this is one of my faves. :)

Tried this iced today…even better! I upped the rating since it’s multi-purpose! I will be getting a larger bag; if anyone wants to try some from my sample lemme know. Or perhaps we can split an order? I’m no tea pusher (like QG! :) ) but if you’re looking for a perfect summertime strawberry tea, this is it. :) Simply yummiful! (It’s so good, I invent words for it.)

QuiltGuppy

Hey! I object.

KeenTeaThyme

I’m sorry – I’ll send you some of this to make it up to you!

Indigobloom

hey I will admit freely that I AM a tea pusher!! :p
(and yoga to. You should try it! haha)

JoonSusanna

I have been dying to try this since I saw your earlier tasting note! I love iced tea so much and it’s making my mouth water. How heavy is the strawberry?

IllBeMother221B

I too am wondering how berry the taste is.

This is one of the best strawberry teas I’ve had in a while, and definitely the best strawberry GREEN tea! The flavor tastes natural and pure, no artificial Starburst-y flavors. It smells as yummy as it tastes, even as it cools. This reminds me of summer – delightful and fun. A new cupboard essential!

Infusin_Susan

I think strawberry flavor goes very well with green tea. My favorite one from Teavana (Nine Treasures) was discontinued, so perhaps I’ll give this one a try!

KeenTeaThyme

I loved Nine Treasures too! If you want me to send you a sample from mine, just PM me your addy. I think you’ll be happy with it, though. :)

Thank you LiberTEAS for sharing a sample of this with me. It certainly smells malty as I let it steep. The taste is surprisingly not bitter like I have come to expect with most breakfast teas. It tastes a bit malty and rich is the word I would use. But in such a good way. I might at a little sweetener, but I don’t think I’ll need it, have to see as the cup goes. Perfect tea to kick start this perfectly rainy day in NY.

Thanks for sharing this, brandy3392!

I’m loving this. It is delicious! It could use a touch more sugar, but the raspberry flavor is strong without being overbearing, fruity without being tart. Definitely one I plan to keep around!

Finishing off what I have on hand of this tea … it’s been a “sipdown” kind of day for me.

A lovely Earl Grey cream. It almost makes me miss the days when I was blending tea, as I had a pretty awesome Earl Grey Creme myself. But, this is still pretty good. Sweet and creamy meets tangy bergamot and brisk black tea. A very lovely combination.

This is another treat from TeaEqualsBliss! Thanks!!!

I love me some Earl Grey, and this is a really lovely Cream Earl Grey. The aroma presents the vanilla in the forefront, as does the taste, but the bergamot weaves its way throughout the sip. The black tea brisk without being too aggressive. A very nice, soothing cuppa!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is a stout tea with some real heft to it! Strong, malty, rich and delicious. A great breakfast tea for those days when you really need some extra gusto! This tea has it!

IllBeMother221B

I’ve never tried a Scottish breakfast. I don’t care for the English breakfast teas I’ve had. Loved most of the Irish breakfasts I’ve tried. I’ll have to look into this tea.

SIPDOWN – backlogging.

Something I noticed yesterday was something that tasted like grenadine or something similar in addition to the maple. Still a tasty cuppa tho!

Thanks LiberTEAs! I have been craving Maple flavored black tea for a while. This is alright but not overly flavored maple. Still pleasing, however. A very nice cup!

So after trying The Tea Table’s version of this tea, I had to try this version that we found in a little shop in Kensington Market to see if it was as good! It’s nearly there, though it doesn’t have quite the body as the other. Still, it’s a very close second, close enough that I won’t have to try and find a way to get the other tea shipped to me, I can just stock up on this one! Very yummy, I love the vanilla and the earthiness of the rooibos and mmmmmm.

This tea is interesting. At first I thought that it had that gross liquor smell that a lot of these rooibos blends have, but then I realized that it was almost a bit minty! This is a smooth cup with a very nice sweetness. I’m not very fond of mint which is what ruins it for me, but I think this would be a great cup for someone who likes chocolate/mint together. I’m not even sure if it contains mint, but that’s what my tongue is tasting in tonight’s steep. Many thanks to Brandy for a sample!

Paul M Tracy

A lot of rooibos have a minty flavor for me. I think it’s their high phenolic content including methyl salicylate which is a primary component of wintergreen.

Sorry, I should have included a “chemistry geek alert” with that last comment.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this delightful Darjeeling.

A very deep flavor to it, a stronger flavor than I’m used to with a Darjeeling, but I like it! A nice muscatel in the background, a bit of astringency at the tail. Very nice Darjeeling!
