So far this is one of my favorite lemon teas! So many other lemon flavored teas taste like floor-cleaner lemon. This doesn’t have that chemical-y, artificialness to it.

It has this really bold, natural tasting lemon flavor that smells even better.

Be careful brewing this though… If you let the teabag steep for too long it gets really bitter and the lemon flavor is destroyed

I think it was a mix of the bag being old, and me not letting it steep long enough that led to it not being as good as it usually is this morning.

Oh, well. When fresh and steeped properly, this tea is pretty good. I find the black tea base to be astringent (I know, I know, that’s what I get for not buying the finest stuff on the market), but the berry flavorings are delicious. I taste raspberry and blueberry mostly, although I think there’s blackberry, too. My internship supervisor sniffed the air near my travel mug and was like, “I smell raspberry… or maybe even cranberry?”

Okay, maybe it wasn’t as weak as I thought.

I highly recommend these Pyramid teas, though. Especially steeped in a glass vessel.

I usually don’t go for Lipton when I choose my teas, but the wonderful shmiracles sent me some in our swap!
Compared to the other chai’s that I’ve had, this one is //decent//. I like my chai with a small dash of milk and sugar. Ran out of sugar so honey it is! With a bit of tweaking, I got the chai that I wanted :)

Shmiracles

haha yup i basically sent this cuz i have a lot of it (given to me by a co-worker) and it’s not too bad. :) and i’m no snob, I will totally drink anything once. I usually make it right on the stove with a pot of milk and agave. and it’s comes out yummy enough. how could it not?!?!

Some mornings are for the fanciful, flavoured teas. Some are for the refined. Yet others are for the basics; the lowly black teas from the supermarket shelves that claim to be nothing more than “tea”. On some mornings, these are just right to be cups of comfort and “home”. This is one of those mornings.

Normally, I doctor up this sort of tea, but today I’m having it clear.

Actually, that wasn’t a bad decision. While not the peak of refinement by any means, the tea is approachable, mainly earthy, and thankfully clear of the floral tones I sometimes find in black teas, and of which I’m not personally a fan. (If you are, that’s great. I just don’t find it the best taste personally.) It’s on the mild side, yes, but I expected that and appreciated it all the more clear for that.

Overall, I don’t think it’s a bad little cuppa at all.

I’m surprised this tea has such low ratings. I’m an herbal tea drinker and this is the only caffeinated thing in my cupboard. The white tea flavor is very light and delicate and compliments the peach flavor wonderfully. I didn’t taste any mango, but in any case I still like it :)

Generic tea, nothing special. But beggars can’t be choosers, when this is usually given for free in the plane, meetings, conferences, or the lounge area at the office.

I normally only like teas that I don’t have to add anything to. This one is not so great on it’s own. Mostly taste the spice but not the black tea. BUT if you make a latte out if it, it’s awesome!! I mix in some raw honey and sugar and then froth some milk in my french press. Excellent desert tea.

This is one of those teas that you drink in a pinch. Never very smooth, turns terribly astringent and bitter really easily. But if it’s the only tea around and I’m feening for a cuppa, then it would do.

Last night at mom & dad’s. We were playing cards, when mom suddenly exclaimed, “Oh, I forgot to pour up the tea.”
“Uhm, how long has it been steeping?” I asked.
“Not long, I put it on just before you got here.”

Yeah, we had been there like an hour and a half. Typical glass of mom’s iced tea. Is it any wonder I seldom notice astringency?

Sil

haha

Steeped with a mother’s love! :)

Veronica

Sounds like the tea my grandma used to make. She’d steep it for hours so it’d have more flavor. :)

K S

The funny thing is this doesn’t taste a whole lot different when steeped correctly, but its home.

Not bad for a flavored and bagged green tea. Tastes mostly like passionfuit and orange though. The green tea can be pretty bitter for a name that suggests such sublteness. Somewhat harsh aftertaste, but it’s not all bad when you add honey to it. But by then it’s mostly just a fuit tea with a hint of jasmine aroma. I recommend a very quick steep at a lower than normal temperature to reduce the harshness.

I liked this tea, although it was a bit weak. The spices felt like I could just about taste them to their fullest, but I never could. Although I could taste the cinnamon the most.

This is a pretty basic green tea. When I don’t feel like steeping my flavoured teas, this is my go to. I treat this like water, I only drink it to quench a thirst.
When steeped, the tea itself is pretty dark. It’s a tad bitter on it’s own. There are better green teas out there, but I keep going back to this one for 2 reasons:
1. Basic, Dependable
2. Cheap (100 bags for under $5)

So, my day started off really shitty but thankfully it seems to have full turned around! I’m so pumped for tonight and seeing Catching Fire with Robyn since (and I don’t want to jinx it, so knock on wood) everything seems to be going my way!

First, my unexpected shift at work went by SUPER quickly and I had a really, really good hour or so conversation with the manager at the yogurt bar near my kiosk. Turns out she’s a huge tea fan too, and not just the “I’m strictly familiar with DAVIDsTEA” and “OMG TEA CAN HAVE CHOCOLATE IN IT!?” type of tea fan either. It was super cool getting to talk to someone in person (other than Robyn, of course) about tea and use all the ‘lingo’ and not have to ‘dumb down’ the way I was talking.

And then, walking home, I thought about the possibility of there being one of the swaps I’m expecting in the mail today possibly. That cheered me up, and although I didn’t find anything I was expecting in the mailbox I did find something I wasn’t expecting! I didn’t even know she was doing anything like this, but the angelic Lala was SO super kind to send me a totally surprise holiday card with a tea sample in it! Gah! The kindness and generosity on Steepster is just too much, and I really really needed this unexpected gesture of kindness today to make my day better! Thanks so much Lala and Merry Steeping and Happy Sipping to you too (and PS. the card is SO FREAKING CUTE)!

Then, on top of the other things that are going good, the cut on my gums that’s been giving me so much displeasure it healing up super quickly and nicely – and I’m totally going to credit sticking these Lipton tea bags in my mouth as the reason! It’s really nice to be able to drink tea without it hurting me doing so.

Lastly, and maybe the best thing of all, my dear friend Renee talked to me today! This might not seem like a big thing, but she’s been my BEST friend since 8th grade, we worked at the movie theatre together for nearly a year and she’s just so special to me. Sadly, the last few months before I moved I was going through some really bad depression and we grew apart and then, after moving to my new town, we completely fell out of contact despite my spending my first month and a half hear trying to talk to her. I was told from several people (friends and former coworkers) that she had grown to hate me the last few months before I moved, was happy I was gone, and no longer considered me a friend. That was a huge blow, and sorta sent me back into a depression (which I’ve been doing so much better coming out of this last month). So, it’s a BIG DEAL that today she messaged ME out of the blue and actually started catching up with me (and we’re now making amends). I’m quite literally crying tears of joy. Pure fucking joy. This was ALL that I needed to completely erase every little bit of shittyness that it feels like has been dumped on me since moving.

It’s SO SO SO good to know that I haven’t lost my best friend. Everything feels good now, and I feel like I’m going to be ok and I just felt like I had to share that. Steepster has been amazing for me and amazing in giving me a group of truly caring individuals to talk to and share a passion with. Just, what a great turn around to an awful starting day. I truly feel blessed.

Lala

Wow that got there quick. I am glad it helped to cheer up your day!

Roswell Strange

It probably helps that you’re only a city away. And it definitely helped cheer my day up! It’s a great feeling receiving mail just as thoughtful as it is unexpected! I instantly smiled! I’m also curious to try a Cuppa’T blend since I only started exploring different tea stores after moving – and therefore missed out on visiting this store! The tea you sent me smells heavenly, though ^^
