Wanted to Start the Day Little Spice.
So I went with the Strauss Apple Cinnamon.
The Dry Sachet Smells like a Warm piece of Apple Pie.
When Steeped for 5 min with 205’ Water the Fragrance gets stronger.
And on 1st Draw The Warm Cinnamon is Treated with Apple Overtones
The Nectar is Golden Brown, and the Right Mix of Apple Cinnamon.
They must have proof tested this Tea at a Pie Bakery.
Very good choice.
Keep on Steepin.

This Strauss Wildberry Herb became so Memorable for me.
On opening the Can the Dry Sachets remind me of a long discontinued Wine.
A very Good vintage (1960-1970’s) French wine Nectarose.
The Fragrance was so Strong and Sweet, I was anxious for the water to heat.
The water being added diffused the fragrance even more.
I waited the 3 min steep time and enjoyed the profound smells
The nectar in the cup displays a pink/rose color (like the Wine I recall)
The first draw of the liquid was such a Joy, Sweet Fruit Warm Explosions.
With a Tasteful sense of Comfort and pleasure.
This Tea has just moved to the Head of my class.
Highly Recommended Try this Out if you can find it.
Keep on Steepin.

1st Steep of the Day and 1st of the Year.
Wanted to Start the Year with a Little Spice.
So I went with the Strauss Apple Cinnamon.
The Dry Sachet Smells like a Warm piece of Apple Pie.
When Steeped for 5 min with 205’ Water the Fragrance gets stronger.
And on 1st Draw you might want to wipe off any PIE Crumbs you dropped.
The Nectar is Golden Brown, and the Right Mix of Apple Cinnmon.
They must have proof tested this Tea at a Pie Bakery.
Very good choice.
Keep on Steepin.

2nd Steep of the day, Last Steep of the YEAR.
Tried this Strauss Pear Green Tea.
This is a Good Green Tea, But a Little Light on the Pear Flavoring.
Could be More Profound in the Cup.
The Dry Leaf Smells Rather Strong, But gets lost in the Cup.
Have to try it again in the New Year.
Keep on Steepin.

100th post Celebration Drink
1st Steep of the Day.
Just took a Chance on this Tea from Ollies Bargain Discounts
I usually don’t like White Tea, but a Blueberry Flavored was worth a try.
GREAT CHOICE HERE, The Dry Tea Sachets smell WAY WAY Blueberry.
Reminds me of a piece of Blueberry pie, or Blueberry Cobbler.
The Liquor is Light Colored, and very aromatic.
The flavor explodes with the berry taste and Light White Tea presence.
Can’t wait to try the Other Flavors that I got with this Purchase.
Green Tea Pear, and Green Tea Jasmine.
This is Great for the 100th post.
Keep on Steepin.
