Thanks for sharing this one omgsrsly. I thought this one would be too much for me, but brewed it’s a fairly subdued version of an earl grey. Not intensely blergamot, nor is there really a floral component to this one. Nothing I need to repurchase, given I’m not a fan of earl grey, but this one is pretty laid back and gentle :)
minty, vanilla goodness. nothing super special about this one beyond the name… for those of you that know helen, she’s still made because she doesn’t have a new crown, but she’s making up for it by wearing a helmet now. special helmet for a special dino. enjoyed this tea courtesy of missB :)

Tea of the afternoon from the T-We shop in the Crocker Galleria. I went in looking for a rooibos blend but decided to try this instead. It’s a blend of white tea, coconut and cardamom.
I happen to love cardamom and this smelled really good in the shop. I wanted something with low caffeine so hopefully this doesn’t keep me awake later on. I’d say the cardamom is very strong in this blend and overpowers the other ingredients a bit. The coconut is present in the background as a bit of a milky/creamy taste. It’s a bit difficult to pick out the flavor that the white tea is contributing to this. Overall this is a really nice blend if you like cardamom. I tried mine plain but I think it would be good with a touch of sweetener and would be VERY good with coconut milk or coconut sugar. hmmm.
Did you know that cardamom is supposedly an anti-depressant? there’s something about it that is making me happy. ;)
Flavors: Cardamon, Cream
I’m finally getting around to trying this herbal blend I got in S.F. a few weeks ago. Dolores Day… evidently named for Dolores Park, a place the locals like to go hang out on the weekends when it’s sunny. This is definitely a good blend with lemon balm, peppermint and lavender. I don’t normally like lavender in tea but it’s subtle and nice and the lemon balm gives it a pleasant, herby note. I also feel like this would be good with some turbinado sugar but I’m trying to resist that for now. T-We makes some really nice blends and this just makes me happy for some reason ….
Kind of reminds me of Twining’s Buttermint, but it’s easier to find here. :P Still, not that easy, but, tasty enough and with enough in my cupboard that it’ll do me! Yay…. minty vanilla, who knew I’d love you so much.
Flavors: Candy, Mint, Vanilla
Something about this was painfully off when I had it – so much so that I packed up the rest immediately and planned on sharing it with someone who might like it more. Can’t remember what it was, but it just wasn’t to my tastes. Maybe the rooibos, maybe the combination of flavors? Dunno, but it made me sad, because I love this company to bits.
Finished off my box of this today, I never added it to my cupboard but it was gone fairly quicky after I purchased it. I drank this a lot as an after lunch digestive type of tea, my currently I’m on a ginger & peppermint mix or just plain ginger. I may get some more at some point but I still have a cupboard full of tea to drink at home. =)
Afternoon tea that I got at local company T-We tea in San Francisco. I wasn’t expecting too much from this blend but it’s really good in my opinion. Of course, I love ginger and that is the predominant flavor of this blend: ginger with a slight hint of orange. There’s white tea in it too but it’s actually hard to find to detect the white tea in it. I might have to go back and get some more of this next week. If you don’t like ginger I wouldn’t bother though.
I definitely felt this was warming, invigorating and SPICY! I also found if you buy a glass tumbler from them they will give you a free cup of tea every time you go in. Pretty good deal if you’re in the area, the tumbler would pay for itself in a little over 10 visits. I think I will be doing that more often :)
What with the jasmine blossoms and citrus peels, I thought this tea was going to be over the top floral soapy… but it’s not!
It’s actually a super mild earl grey with some additional floral notes. Not bad, but not really enough, either. As in, it’s not distinct enough or different enough to find a permanent place in my cupboard.
That being said, I really enjoyed the mug I had this morning. Yum!
Thank you for sharing, MissB!
Aww, it looks like MissB didn’t try this one (it was the lavender, wasn’t it?)! So now it’s up to me to review a tea that I… don’t really have any application for. Oh well, it smells good!
There is definitely a LOAD of lavender in this tea. Sniffing it, I can also smell the raspberry leaf, but wow it’s almost soap. And it takes a lot of lavender to make things smell soapy for me.
Steeped, it smells like herbal soap tea. Umm… I’m kinda scared.
It’s been sitting there for about 15 minutes while I putter around and consider drinking it.
Well, it’s not terrible. It’s a bit sweet from the “anise seeds” (aka fennel) and the lavender. The raspberry leaf is tasty enough. I can’t tell there’s fenugreek in it. But I would still much rather be drinking something else.
I think that if it’s a tea you need, this would be a much tastier option than some others, but as a tea I don’t need… I’m gonna pass.
Ah… this is a beautify-full and fragrant herbal blend that I just blogged about today so you can read all the details here:
I liked tea before tea was cool. (Sorry. I just couldn’t resist.)
This tea is one of the strangest teas I’ve ever drunk. Yes, there is green tea in it but there is far more carrot so it was less green tea with carrot, and more carrot tea. The jasmine did add a nice touch, but I wish it tasted like… well, tea.
Guess I’m not a hipster.
I stopped by this shop for the first time last week and picked this up. I think ashmanra told me about this company. I didn’t know it existed, and it’s only a couple blocks from my work! Anyway, it’s a very modern, tiny little shop. They have their regular blends and then they have their “fancy pants” blends. Haha! Their teas seem to only come in 2.5 oz. packages. They don’t have a huge selection, but they did have 3 different chai’s. They have Chai Me (herbal), Chai This, and Chai That. I picked up Chai That because it had star anise in it. I think it’s supposed to be the spicier of the two black chai’s. I was a little disappointed in the packaging, because inside the box, the tea is in kind of a thin plastic bag with one of those curl-down ties, but once you open it, it’s not as secure.
The dry leaf of this tea smells great! There only seems to be one little star anise in my little bag though. Once steeped, it still smells great! However, the taste was disappointing. I thought the spice blend was pretty flat, meaning I couldn’t discern high or low notes. Oh well, it was fun to try, but apparently not the blend for me.
I have rather enjoyed this and will probably get more someday. I’m not a huge fan of Keemun but somehow it works here with the Nilgiri and Ceylon. I wouldn’t have thought of putting those together myself but it’s a tasty blend.
I’m happy to have my Silk Soymilk back for tea. Regarding plant based milks, I keep trying different ones and Silk Soymilk is definitely the best one for tea, it doesn’t impart much of a flavor but it makes things nice and creamy.
