Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

I like this very much. When I first looked at it, I thought there might have been a mistake … this looks more like rooibos than a black tea. But, interestingly enough, it tastes more like a black tea than a rooibos blend.

These flavors meld very well together – creating a rich, sweet, delicious flavor that is all at once chocolate-y, coconut-y, sweet and creamy. Deliciously decadent!

drank Peach White by Tea Addiction

Last night while brewing my cup of hot tea, I decided to keep on brewing and make a pitcher for the fridge. It’s so refreshing as an iced tea. The flavors are a little lighter, but it tastes so good. I can feel it cool me down as I sip it. Thirst-quenching and yummy!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is really lovely. It’s delicate and delicious. The peach is light, and the hint of mango really is just that … a hint. Overall, the cup is sweet and fruity, but with a nice, light, refreshing taste of white tea in the background.

A very nice “unwind” kind of tea.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is really very good. I didn’t have high hopes for it, because I have difficulty combining tea and coffee together. I know that it’s good, I’ve had it before, but, I still have some malevolence toward coffee, so that tainted my initial reaction to this tea.

This has a little more tea flavor than coffee – the coffee notes are there though, but I think it is mostly from the chicory rather than the coffee beans. There is some bitterness to this because of the coffee notes, but there is also a very deep, rich flavor that is quite enjoyable. If I were to change something, I’d probably want more almond flavor in this.

Backlogging…

This is REALLY Good! One of the better Magnolia Teas/Oolongs I have had! Very flavorful sweet and floral – semi-smooth, too! Lovely!

Thanks LiberTEAs…backlogging…Steepster has been giving me problems lately…anyhow…

This was MUCH better than I anticipated! The cacao and vanilla in addition to the mate worked well together – nothing was overly intense tho…I really appreciated the roasty/toasty effects too!

When I first tried this tea, I was pleasantly surprised by its flavor. I only briefly steep this tea for a minute and it is great also as a iced tea.

I gave up coffee for this tea! I enjoy two cups of the smooth mint tea every morning at work and I love the light minty taste of the tea, its so refreshing.

drank Magnolia Oolong by Tea Addiction

This is so lovely – not just the Oolong… but the fact that I’m indulging in TWO Oolongs in one day. I love it.

The flavor is floral but not perfume-y. Smooth and subtle. An excellent Oolong.

Thanks to Kristin for sending this one along!

I almost feel like I’m drinking two teas at once. There’s a darker smoky flavour, and then a moment later the sweetness of the rooibos and white chocolate hits you. It is a quite sweet dessert tea, which isn’t actually my usual cup of tea. It tastes more like white chocolate than chocolate teas usually taste like chocolate, which is awesome! Too sweet for before bedtime.

Ahhh.. can’t go wrong with this one in the mornings.. I recently (as in 2 days ago) received a tin from two different people (!) for my birthday.. I know. Weird. This is the official drink between coffee and tea for those of you who are interested to know what that would be, and its pretty much fantastic! Anyway, thanks guys, love it!

Backlogging on this one. I first drank this a few days after receiving it a couple weeks ago. It was the first blend my husband (the coffee drinker) was interested in trying! yay Reason being is that it’s blended with whole coffee beans as well as almond slivers which gives it a slightly nutty layer but still tastes quite similar to that cuppa jo he enjoys. This blend is also great because the coffee beans give you that next level of kick above black. I’m glad I found this because we can finally enjoy a cup of tea together in the morning <3

First time tasting this. I actually think I almost forgot that I had it.. ::h o w e v e r:: I am very glad I went with this one today! I’m really into coconut right now, so this was an obvious choice, but the blend of rooibos and black makes it very smooth (and I over steeped it, doh!) Had I used my Breville Tea Maker, that would not have happened, but since this blend does have cacao, I would prefer not to introduce any sugars to the pot. BUT, I still used the Breville to heat my water to 212 deg.. and it was ready in a snap. After I poured the water over the tea to steep, the tea maker kept time for me with its handy “time since brewed” indicator. It would have been less fail had I not walked away.. but whatever. It came out perfectly yummy. I might add that upon opening the canister, you do get a bit of a punch of that cacao scent over everything else, which made me think the flavor would’ve been more pronounced—but it was balanced perfectly. Funny how that works out… I am adding this one to my favorites. Seems like I have quite a few now.. and I am realizing most of them are black.. :D

This is a great tea. I know I know, some of you are going to drink this and think “tastes like black tea. So what.” But there is something wonderful to me about the hints of vanilla and honeysuckle in this smooth smooth black tea that I just love!

I like it with and without milk and I like just a pinch of truvia to enhance the vanilla/caramel flavor. This is my new favorite. I just love to smell it! Yummmmm.

This one really made me think before typing a review here. It’s REALLY good but what I like best is the lavender (and I am not usually ‘all about’ lavender). It’s a creamier lavender and not that overly floral/fragrant astringency that intensely floral teas sometimes give you…you know what I mean?The EG flavoring is nice but not the highlight of this tea…the creamy lavender is! It’s really great tasting! YUM!

Thanks LinerTEAs!

This is one of the best Earl Grey Lavender teas I’ve encountered, if not THE best… the lavender is strong but not too strong – it is at the perfect level! Not soapy or perfume-y in any way. I like the note of jasmine in there too. I like how these two flowers play to the flowery notes of the bergamot, and at the same time, lets the citrus-y tones come through. This tea is so well-balanced.

If you like lavender in your Earl Grey, you should really try this one! It’s awesome!

So, I walked by my co-worker’s desk (chris_s) and noticed he was opening a new tin of tea. I smelled it and then begged him for some… I think I said ‘Gimme!’. It has actual coffee beans and chunks of roasted almonds in it. It smelled so amazing, like almond coffee. It smells just as good brewed and has an interesting complexity because of the coffee beans. This is definitely going on my shopping list.

I like it. So much that I may copy and paste your review as my own. :)

Awwwwww – yeah! This is such a novelTEA – love it!

I took it to a meeting and the whole conference room smelled great… like marzipan and coffee.

Sounds like something you can’t decide if you should brew it or eat it.
