This comes to me courtesy of TeaEqualsBliss – thanks so much for the sample!
I was a little nervous after finding some red peppercorns in the sample and I also know this tea has dried orange peel as well as rooibos so I thought it would be curious and interesting.
Hmmm, for a rooibos blend this is pretty nice. I like my rooibos with soymilk so that’s how I’m drinking it this afternoon. The orange element is very strong and I’m also picking up on coconut and a nice spicy element. It’s a bit like a rooibos chai but fruitier. Nice afternoon tea but I don’t think I need to run out and buy any. :-) Thanks for sharing, T = B!
Whoo, this is the first time I’ve been able to write anything on Steepster in DAYS. I’m going through withdrawal. I’m backlogging this from 3 days ago or so, and my memory is a little fuzzy, but I remember liking it! This is sadly also the last tea I had. Yes, 3 days ago! The horror. I got food poisoning and then had some weird vitamin deficiency from the food poisoning and now… I don’t even know, but somehow I am still sick. My luck is the worst. ;~;
Anyway, this is another from the box from LiberTeas. I was jonesing for something comforting and familiar, and lavender earl grey is one of my absolute favorites. This is an excellent blend, not too floral and the lavender is well-balanced with the bergamot and the base, which is nice and mild. I actually ended up drinking the third steep first and it was still quite flavorful! (I got overly nervous that the milk was bad in the first cup, and the second I steeped for 5 minutes and it was ungodly bitter)
I love the little caramel squares in this tea! I wanted to nibble on it, but I refrained. When I steeped this up, it was a nice black tea. Strong! It tasted good on its own, but I felt the need to add a little sugar and some milk to it. It brought out the caramel/vanilla flavor. It also had a tinge of powdered milk taste to it. The caramel melted! This is a delicious tea!
I finished this tea up today as well. Woo I’m on a roll. I have teas lined up for later as well. This tea is good as always. I brewed this up Western style, but this tea tastes a lot better brewed in a small gaiwan or small vessel. Delicious! This doesn’t have the powdered milk smell or taste to it, which is great! Lovely tea. :)
It is Christmas Eve, and I am getting excited for the evening! This morning called for something warm and cozy. I chose French Vanilla by Tea Cozy. I received this in a holiday swap a while ago, but I finally transferred this tea into a tin. Delicious tea! The vanilla flavor is subtle and theres a nice sweetness to this tea. There was no bitterness or astringency. I added some sugar and milk, but I think the milk took away a lot of the flavor.
Thanks for this one, too, LiberTEAs
I have had some superfruit teas that are really tarty-bitter that leave your mouth dry almost like cottonmouth…but this one is nice! I can taste the Acai but it’s paired with pom and maybe straw/rasp or something like that and it’s nice! It goes good with the green tea base too! Nice flavored green right here!
Reminds me of Hina’s Mexican Winter…with a bit of something extra…backlogging…more on this soon over at http://sororiteasisters.com
I received this from a friend this past spring, and I’m finally getting around to trying it. I’m not able to find much information about it, since the description on the Tea Cozy website is a bit off with their descriptions (they have 1 description for their Fuji Green Tea and it was simply cut and pasted for all their flavored green teas). The dry leaf is really pretty, long tea leaves (it looks like a Chinese Sencha) and big chunks of red fruit (strawberries and cranberries?)
I can taste a strong berry flavor here, definitely can taste Acai. A hint of pomegranate is in there too. I don’t really taste much of a strawberry flavor, it tastes more like blueberry to me. It is sweet and tart and really quite tasty.
I’m celebrating Cinco de Mayo a little early so that I can review this tea and publish it tomorrow for the holiday.
This has an interesting aroma. I can smell the orange, the cinnamon, the chili and the rooibos… and together they create a very intriguing scent. The rooibos is less obvious in the flavor than it is in the scent, and that’s just the way I like my rooibos. The woody/nutty taste is there, but it isn’t very strong. The cinnamon and orange are much stronger. The coconut is barely there, but, I like the way it peeks its way through.
The chili is subtle at the start, and it slowly develops, and eventually builds to a point where it sort of kicks you at the finish. The more I sip on this, the more I’m liking it.
After dinner tea… mMmm… The first steep was fantastic. The second steep I added Ottawa Tea’s Canadian Ginseng Root. I had never seen actual ginseng before. It smelled really nutty! I can’t really describe it. I added 2 medium-large pieces. It is so good! It added a woody/nutty quality to the milk oolong. It is a nice, mild taste. Not quite like the ginseng oolong I had before (the other one tasted more green to me but maybe it was the oolong or the green outer shell it had). I digress… So this one was great! Mild but noticeable taste.
I might try adding this to everything now!
RAVE – Ottawa Tea’s HoppiTea package was awesome. She was super sweet and sent me a whole bunch of goodies! She even wrote me a really nice, informative letter! Thank you soooo much!!! :)
I received a package of this tea from a tea friend. This is pleasantly chocolate-y with a lovely hazelnut note. It’s reminds me very much of nutella, only in tea form. The black tea is brisk but not particularly bold and doesn’t attempt to overpower the chocolate and hazelnut. Nevertheless it is quite flavorful and melds well with the flavors.
The hazelnut is sweet and nutty and the chocolate is a dark chocolate flavor – I suppose if I wanted milk chocolate I could easily add some milk to this but I’m finding it quite delightful neat. A very enjoyable tea.
