I made a big pitcher of iced tea. I’ve been drinking most of my tea iced lately. I find it a nice change of pace from having it hot and I’m finding it quite refreshing for the summertime. I mixed together this tea with Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla and the result was a treat. Tastes like strawberry bubblegum! Really nice! The strawberry flavour was obviously coming from this tea and it did taste like sweet, ripe, juicy strawberries. I will prepare this combination again until my Sleepytime Vanilla is gone and then I will make it using only the Strawberry Daiquiri.
Flavors: Strawberry, Sweet
Want to like. Keep trying to like. But, do not like. Sadface. White teas never seem to ring my bell, so maybe that’s it? I dunno, though. I keep searching for the “almond” in the “almond biscotti”, but I can never find it. All I get is a thin, vague sweetness. If I spot it on the shelves again this holiday season, I think I’ll take a pass.
This is my kind of cookie in a cup. Lightly sweet, lots of almond flavor, and even though it is a white tea there is a bread-y flavor that lends a distinct cookie taste. Plus, this is a tea bag, so it’d be so easy to throw a few in my purse to keep on hand for tea emergencies. I’d definitely pick some up if I were to happen across them.
Thank you OMGsrsly for giving me the chance to try this one.
This is a really decent spiced white bagged tea. I’m glad I got it whenever it was I picked it up, but I don’t think I need to get it again. Today it’s mostly chicory and white tea that I’m tasting, with a few spices and a little sweetness.
And I’m still under 260 even with the new teas, which is nice. I might drink a few more easy sipdowns tonight, or maybe not. :)
Pretty good! I added a couple drops of stevia to this, and it was just nicely mildly sweetened.
The chicory and stuff in it lends to a somewhat thicker feel, which is also nice. Not a lot of caffeine, I don’t think, but I still enjoyed it. :)
(2 tea bags in 14 oz)
In other news… As far as nails go, the ones where I did base-top-regular.polish-top are looking better than the one I did regular.base-regular.polish-top. The more you know. I also did my toes with the kit colour. I’ve never had red toenails. I don’t think I ever want them again. I really dislike this red, wow. I wish I could have chosen my own colour. And of course since I’ve used it now, I can’t exactly give it away. :/
I, uhh, double bagged this one tonight. Yes, tea with caffeine at 11pm. Why? Because I feel like it.
I’m supposed to be finishing up a presentation for a meeting tomorrow, but I don’t wanna. I should have enough time to do it in the morning if I don’t sleep through my alarm. Again.
Anyways. With a dollop of cream, this is really nice. Didn’t feel a need to add sugar to this cup for some reason. Maybe because it smells so incredibly sweet. Chocolaty, biscuity, and I can even taste the white tea today.
I need to remember this is in my cupboard so I can drink it all ASAP.
I got sucked into buying this tonight. It was either this for $2.69, or a tin of Coconut Matcha (sweetened) for $9.99. This won.
I’m actually rather impressed. I had guessed it’d steep into a bitter, terrible mess, but it hasn’t. Yes, the flavour is strong and isn’t the best quality, but the cocoa shells and chicory raise this up over a normal flavoured bagged tea. I’ll definitely finish the package, but I don’t think I’d buy it again.
This tea steeps too weakly for my taste, even with two teabags in a cup. I honestly think that I’ll need to use three or four to get a decent cup. I only paid $2 for a box of 16 individually packaged teabags so for the price it’s not bad. At least the packaging makes it convenient. But personally, I’d prefer to pay a bit more for loose leaves that give a stronger steep than this one. It’s always nice to try something new though.
I never tried this because they’re always more expensive than the Ito-en/kirkland green teas that are always beside it…
But one time they had a sale I decided to pick it up. What a mistake.
It’s not so good. It turns sour/bitter way too quickly even if I adjust the water temperature, tastes more smokey like cheap Chinese green teas that I don’t like too much…
Not very pleasant… I’m chugging it down so I can go back to my old green tea…
