headache tea. Its weird how much I associate this with relief from sinus pain. I wonder why…
Finishing up the Thanksgiving cards with this mellow almond cup of tea. I love sending cards, I can hardly wait until its time for the winter holiday cards as well!
Not a complicated tea, but sweet and gentle and nice.
Sometimes you just need a basic simple cup of tea. After a long adventure of shopping yesterday, it was nice to sit down at Panera with a cup of this. Perked me up for the drive home.
I’m addicted to this stuff! It’s got a soothing, citrus flavor that is refreshing without being astringent. The teabag design means that it sinks to the bottom of cup, making it progressively stronger as you drink more. This is a benefit since the brew time seems to last forever. I’m not sure what type of tea this is, but I enjoy it immensely.
mmmmm took a bath and had this one with me. Pretty sure it was steeped the entire time i was drinking it and it’s no worse for wear. I’m a fan of teabags/herbals that let you do that since sometimes you just can’t be bothered fishing teabags out, or dealing with loose tea on the go. Still really enjoying this one as a substitute for making actual apple cider.
Gah. I like to get my Nanowrimo writing done as early in the day as I can. Admittedly, during the working day, this is after work, but on the weekends, I usually do it in the mornings.
Drat. Today got away from me, so now I’m working on the wordcount for today. Whew.
This cup to help me along. Easy, uncompliated, nourishing.
Received this one from Darby in round 2 of the secret pumpkin swap.
This was in tea bag form. It smells super delicious. Like sweet pecan pie. You can definitely smell the maple.
This tea is so, so, so creamy without adding any type of creamer or milk. It tastes like maple butter. This tea reminds me of pecan pie or a pecan pastry. There is definitely a pastry type flavour. It is a heavy pastry, made of lard. Delicious. Ha ha. There is a pecan flavour as well as a definite maple syrup sweetness.
Finished off the last bit of my tin this morning by preparing a pitcher of this to keep in the fridge. Technically not a sipdown, but I’m happy to see this tin leave my collection. It’s certainly not bad by any means, but as the weather has gotten colder, my tastes have changed just a bit and I’m doing my best to keep my stash fresh. I may just buy another tin next summer.
Last cup! This one has to be absolutely boiling to taste best. I’ve realized this the last few cups I had, and I thought I had it hot enough before! When the water is as hot as I can possibly get it the cinnamon comes out much more and it’s a much better cup.
As of right now I’ve had this tea an entire year, so finishing it off feels like a big accomplishment. Bye, Hot Apple Cider.
Not a fan… fake fruit flavor and fake sweet flavor.
Republic of Tea makes some awesome products, like Plantain Coconut Green Rooibos, Mango Chili Green Roooibos, and Pomegranate Green Tea. I get their sample bags in the mail and some have been stellar like the Pumpkin Chai sample that comes at the beginning of fall. So, when I saw this new line of teas from them I jumped on it. I got the Lemon Chiffon and Blueberry Bundt since both are caffeine free. The Lemon Chiffon was clearly the better of the two.
This is a rooibos, so I use boiling water and let it steep upwards of 10 minutes. The first disappointing thing is that it really doesn’t taste anything like blueberry for me. There is a slightly cakey taste that leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. There is a woodiness from the rooibos, but it is mainly overpowered by some other taste I can’t really place. All in all, it was drinkable. I am just about finished with the whole tin, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
Wha-? I’m awake. I’m awake……… zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Help, Vanilla Almond, to get me going where I need to go!
Lovely scent, nice mesh of flavors.
Ah, when I saw this in the grocery store I could not resist its call. I got this last year, when I had first moved into my house, and its smell brought me right back to those days of the house with too little furniture and nothing on the walls.
I like it. I get almond, not coconut out of it, and almond is one of my favorites.
I have a soft spot for this.
I got a sample of this tea just yesterday with the Republic of Tea catalogue. Usually, I let the Rep. of Tea samples sit around along time before possible sampling them, but usually I get rid of them. I’ve only ever had one teabag from them that was halfway decent.
But I’ve been feeling experimental lately, and brewed this one up last night.
It’s junior-mint-like, if you imagine what such a mint would taste like having sat under the sofa cushion for a month, squished and blended with other unidentifiable crumbs, possibly some bug guts. . . It certainly smells awful enough. I think it’s the rooibos adding a sort of rotten quality to it. The flavor almost has redeemable qualities, but not enough to make it drinkable. The mint releases a burst of extra minuteness on the way down that makes me think that it’s going to cover up the bad flavors, but it falls short of the goal. The chocolate, if I could pick it out from the rooibos and mint, almost seems authentic. . .almost, but still in a cheap-chocolate kind of way as is common for chocolate teas.
All in all, not a good cup of tea. I did not finish the cup.
Feeling a little virtuous, for getting the word count in. Now, to suit up and go to work.
A soothing cup of this, to wind down from the mornings cups.
This is the type of tea that you can drink at anytime of the day during just about anything. It has good flavors but they are mild. It would be nice if it actually did something for your skin but I drink too many other teas for this to be the case (as I am sure is the case with all of you who are on this site).
It’s good hot and lukewarm but I don’t like it much cold.
I got this in the mail (attached to a RoT catalouge) mid last week. And I can say this isn’t something I would have tried otherwise.
The apple element is a lot like a green apple Jolly Rancher and the caramel doesn’t really become prominent until it cools, and then it becomes a burnt sugar, caramel note. All in all, it reminds me a lot of those caramel apple suckers.
Unfortunately the rooibos is also a prominent note, which isn’t exactly my favorite flavor.
LOVE this tea! It’s amazing – I was introduced to it by a co-worker, and I haven’t stop drinking it since! Really good with some agave nectar!
