From the reddit traveling tea box!

Phew, I was out all yesterday with 2 food festivals – Watermelon Festival and the 626 Night Market. The former being a complete bust and a crappy festival. So this morning I’m dying for tea. I just had pu’er yesterday to keep me going.

This black from Dryad tea is interesting – I can taste plum and elderberry – which have a bit of tart to it. In the background is the black tea base, herbally notes and some light spices. Definitely an unique tea and would be best iced, but the tart and spice isn’t winning me over.

Another from the reddit traveling tea box.

Finally, a Dryad Tea! I’ve been wanting to try their teas for awhile, but I have so much tea I don’t purchase from new sellers all that much.

This tea is yummy – a soft black tea, lots of sweet lemon notes with a bit of strawberry flavor. Very smooth and kind of creamy. Wish I made this iced!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Wow, just checking out their website, a lot of their teas sound really good! :)

I love the themes on their teas too.

They also have sample packs available in their Etsy store and you get to pick which teas yourself! Hrmmmm… ;)

Thank you Melissa for sending me this as a sample in my recent Hapa-tite! Tea Swap.

This fruity jasmine green tea is quite smooth and fruity. I love when fruit teas actually have a taste to match up to their aroma. The sip opens up with fruitiness and finishes with a slight grass and astringency from the green tea.

Nice to drink, but not sure if it’s special enough to become a regular part of my rotation.

Flavors: Jasmine, Peach

I had this iced yesterday and I think it probably needs sweetener to really bring out its flavors. I couldn’t taste strawberry, maybe just a little lemon, but mostly it was flowery. It seemed a bit too harsh so I think I’ll steep it less time too.

Tried the rest of the sample iced. Definitely not as good as it was hot, which I find weird because it says in the description it is good iced. The cinnamon becomes way more obvious, but it also tastes a lot more like it’s just flavored with hibiscus instead of fruit. Definitely not getting black currant, peach, or apricot. Just hibiscus and cinnamon.

I don’t think I’d get this one again though. It was great hot, it disappointed iced.

Spicy, fruity, and the lovely earthy tone of rooibos makes for a satisfying evening tea.

I’ve never enjoyed black tea before this! It’s wonderfully light and fruity. I still prefer green, but I’d never turn down a cup of Spring Court!

This tea. It’s a star. We had ours with milk, added some extra cinnamon, and had ourselves spicy chai-type teas.

It is also wonderful just straight and hot.

This one is a close second when it comes to favorites. This one ran out almost as soon as we got it, because the whole house loved it.

I’m not a huge tea officionado, so I don’t know what tastes it’s supposed to have, but I do know that it tastes wonderful, no matter the temperature.

This is one of my favorites. Good for when you need a pick-me-up, or when you aren’t feeling well. The tastes are calm and in-depth. Love it.

It’s a decent tea. It’s got some strong flavors, very peppery, and not as chocolatey as I would have liked, but my boyfriend says it’s one of his favorites.

I love this tea, but I think it might be better cold. xD

The fruit and spice in this tea perfectly compliment the rooibos. Makes me think of a porch swing in the last summer at twilight.

It tastes like spring. Fragrant and full of happiness, with a hint of mischievousness.
I love jasmine tea, I am quite fond of green tea, so this is my favorite tea!

This is an excellent relaxation tea, soothing and working wonderfully as a nightcap before bed. Its sweet and subtle flavor allows it to be savored as its warmth helps quiet your thoughts after a long day.

This was a great tea. I have it with a bit of milk and a touch of vanilla and it has just enough cinnamon and other spice to make it a tasty chai. Just delicious.

I am not often a fan of teas with jasmine. But in Goblin Green the jasmine is a nice subtle undertone helping bring forth a very pleasant flavor to this green tea.

A very nice full-bodied tea. Good with honey, milk or straight.

I love this tea! I ordered a sampler and then promptly ordered more for myself and friends! The flavor and smell are amazing- it’s currently my favorite in the cupboard :) I call it a cup of sunshine.
