Holy Crud! How did I get up to 320+ teas?!?!?!
So I guess someone on our international flight decided to be super sweet and share their cold/flu because my poor hubby has been sick as a dog for the last two days which could be managed with sleep, recouperation and chicken soup except he’s got this insane work thing going on at the moment and he’s walked back into 12 hour days onto of evening networking events… So I’m making him this tea with honey every chance I get which is really helping his scratchy throat and cough a bunch… I never would of thought to mix this with honey but it actually adds a nice touch of sweetness to the delicious toasty popcorn flavor… A favorite of mine and glad it’s helping the hubby cope with evil illness
I have drank many types of rooibos because they are caffeine free but I chose this for a tea that I could use as desert at night and the no caffeine was a bonus. I figured as a fan favorite it would be obsolete in regards to its taste but I find it to taste more like piece of angel cake that has been toasted around some wood. While that taste is not nasty, it is not the kind of sweetness I was looking for. I’ve tried steeping this about six different ways I am not finding it to be any better than other desert rooibos that I have had.
Ahh this tea,
Yeah it’s spring but I keep turning to this tea lately.
The weather where I live is like October right now which is so unusual.
We’re used to tons of snow and never ending cold and it’s only -7 – +2 and no snow on the road.
Anyways lol, I enjoy this tea straight as usual. it has savoury flavours just right.
When I drink this tea, it feels like I’m drinking a rich, high caloric drink.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Pumpkin
One of my favourite white/green tea blends, I discovered this one last summer and ever since I have it once or twice every week. It does have some strong fragrance as others have suggested, but I guess all tea blends with rose petals have these artificial notes.
Flavors: Pear, Rosehips
Received this from EmilyGee to try, thanks Emily!
It smells more chocolate/orange dry than it does when brewed. I don’t sense the orange anywhere except maybe a slight hint of citrus right at the end. But it’s ever so faint, I miight even just be willing my tastebuds to notice it.
The chocolate is there, but in a very earthy sense as opposed to the sweet commercial sense. Or it could just be that I’m not familiar with pu-erh tea and the earthiness is from that.
I don’t think it’s orangy enough for my liking, so I doubt I’d buy it in future.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Earth
My first and favorite roobois.
I love everything about it, from the taste to the smell. It is a definite pick me up tea for those days where a little extra is needed to get out of bed, both physically and mentally.
Books recommended for this tea are:
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender ,
Beautiful Maria of My Soul, Oscar Hijuelos, and The Tiger’s Wife

I’ve been wanting to try this tea for a while now and was so happy to get it for a gift this past weekend. It’s a really nice cherry-coconutty tea that I like to really over steep to get the full flavor out. Great if you’re in the mood for cherry.
Flavors: Cherry, Coconut, Floral
i think this tea is best iced down and cold per the tea person’s recommendation. the other reviewer is right, more than a cup, it’s a bit nauseating since it’s so fragrant. also, after subsequent brewings, you will notice a bitter note—so don’t steep too long and ice it down! this is an once in a while type tea!
oh yes, i like this tea very very much. on any day, it is very good. seriously like the name implies, the tea carries with it a creamy taste and feel, and every time i brew this tea, i can steep several times. whatever makes it milky and silky is probably radioactive, but nonetheless, one of my favorites!
I really like what I imagine the pu’erh part of the taste of the tea is. The rest of it tastes like, well, one of those chocolate oranges, with more orange flavor than chocolate. The tea is kind of “less-than” for me since I’m not super fond of that flavor, but I might try it again.
David’s Chocolate Chili Chai is the reason I joined Steepster … just to write this review. This tea is sublime! A little bit about my tastes: I drink coffee, love spicy foods, red wine, and chocolate. This tea is great first thing on a misty morning, or sitting at my desk on a winter evening watching the snow fall. It’s sublime. As I am writing this, I have finished my cup but the scent of this tea still lingers the air. David’s Tea should start making candles! Unbelievably yummy. Two things I would like to note: I used an 8 oz mug and I like a little more tea than the average bear: I use a tablespoon. The flavor makes the more rapid dwindling of my stash so worth it. I can always get more. And I will. :) A million stars.
