Dunno why this is called cappuccino anything, it’s just a caramel rooibos. A nice one at that, but I was hoping for a coffee replacement in a decaf tea when I grabbed this. Nothing wrong with it, just… not as described.

drank Lime by Perennial Tea Room
1114 tasting notes

Was thinking of this for an iced tea when I grabbed it, and I think I’ll need to try it as such to really give it a decent rating. It’s a very smooth, subtle cup, with only a hint of lime in it for me, along with something that’s not reacting well to my lips/tongue. I’m finding myself itchy/feeling like there’s an allergic reaction happening on a smaller scale.

Flavors: Lime

drank Thai Tea by Perennial Tea Room
1114 tasting notes

Had my first cup of this today, from a tea-buying spree in Seattle this past weekend, where among other things I attended The Film School, and ran into Kevin Smith and Jason Mews in my hotel elevator. It’s a nice, solid Thai tea, although I had to oversweeten it (like a traditional Thai iced tea) to have it taste authentic. I can see myself really enjoying this!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Flowers

You ran into Kevin Smith & Jason Mews? Soooo jelly…

It was so surprising, and exciting! Kevin didn’t seem social (I found out later they’d just come from a show), but Jay was all sad/quiet until he was recognized, then he lit up and chatted a bit.

Wooo! I do not know if this tea is actually from Perennial Tea Room, as where I got it, the shop owner prefers to not reveal the origin of the teas.

1st Smell: Mmmm. Lovely. Bergamot with the sweet light smell of roses.
1st taste: Just as lovely as the smell. I love the smell and taste of roses in tea. I think the next time I make this, (Which probably should be in a pot.) will be with a splash of vanilla syrup, as I’ve gotten used to EG cream, and miss that, to slightly blunt the intensity of the Bergamot.)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Strong smell and flavor (from the marsala wine). Next time I should try steeping it for a shorter time. Not sure if I like it.

Excellent Rooibos tea! This tea is smooth and sweet with caramel flavors. Personally, I don’t think it taste like coffee, but is an excellent choice for a sweet dessert type tea. Steep time doesn’t seem to matter

This is winter in a cup! The bold peppermint is mellowed by the sweet vanilla; all evened out by a great black tea. A great cup to keep you warm while you stroll through the snow… (Also, I tried uploading a picture of the tea, but it wasn’t working. To see a picture, the Perennial Tea Room has a nice website.)

Another major backlog!

I got this one from LiberTEAS! This is a really nice, traditional breakfast blend. I’ve only had one cup from the generous amount sent to me by LiberTEAS and I had it black, but I can say almost positively that this one would be equally as nice with milk and sugar. It has a nice, smooth, bold taste. There’s definitely some Assam in there, which gives it a nice bold and somewhat malty taste, but it is smooth too. Overall a very nice breakfast blend!

My cousin gave me this tea after exclaiming it was too “Bergamont-y” for her (it is double Bergamont. The amount of Bergamont is just right for me and I like how the tea doesn’t have too much of a floral taste to it (too floral = soapy for me).

Though the tea is a solid in flavor, I feel as though the flavor flies out of the tea quite fast and for me to get a richer tasting tea, I have to leave the tea in longer but that ends up with a very watery tea at the second steeping. I wouldn’t even attempt steeping it for a third time.

I’ve never been to Seattle, but after having a cup of this before work (thanks to LiberTEAS) I felt like I was there. It was just the boost I needed to get my day started on a Monday. It tasted a bit malty which is becoming a new favorite flavor in morning teas for me. This tea was also VERY smooth and bold. I could have easily had another cup, but I had to head off to work. I really need to make an order when I’m out. This really needs to be a staple in my tea cabinet!

Backlog:

This morning, my hubby and I left EARLY (5:00 am) to take our soon to be son-in-law to Olympia. I brewed the last that I had of this tea to take with me on the journey. Still just as rich and full-flavored as I remember. I really enjoyed it while it lasted.

Bonnie

Yo Hubby…get hunny some more!

Dylan Oxford

Yay, Olympia!

An excellent chai. There are exciting notes of spice as well as hints of fruit in this blend. The black tea is strong and delicious. The spices are well-blended, and add warmth and a pleasant sweetness to the cup. The fruit tones are vague but add a delicious dimension of flavor to the cup. A very well-rounded cup of chai!

This is really good. One of the best Chai teas that I’ve had. I love the spices. Very warming!

YUM! I am currently drinking it as a non-latte and am contemplating adding a splash of chocolate creme…….

Today I don’t have the luxury of being able to crawl back into bed after I get my youngest off to school because my oldest finishes her final hour at Cosmetology school today, and I’m heading up there to watch the event.

So, I need something to help me shake that desire to go back to bed! This is what I grabbed. It is a good wake-me-up blend. Strong and hefty, but, also incredibly smooth. I really like this one. A good tea to represent the Pacific Northwest!
