I have no clue where this tea came from, but it was in a sealed container so I decided to use my found Melon flavored white tea for a pitcher of iced tea. I cold steeped it overnight which may have been a bit too long because the iced brew has an alkaline tinge to it. Fortunately, it’s just a tinge so I’ll have no problem drinking the rest of the pitcher. All in all this white tea is pretty tasty with a natural melon flavor.

Nothing hits the spot like curling up with a fluffy fleece Tinkerbell blanket, a Hello Kitty pillow, your Kindle with the recent time-traveling romance on it, and a good cup of hot tea with a dollop of honey for your sweet tooth.

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

I cold-brewed this tea overnight, and the result is a delicious tea that tastes lightly of ginger and peach and green tea. The ginger is only slightly peppery. It is a very refreshing iced tea.

I do enjoy this tea — light, with the perfect amount of mango flavor. It is a good everyday-type tea that fits many moods. It is also good when in a rush as it takes very little time to steep.

I hot brewed it last night. This is incredibly refreshing – the blueberry flavor is strong and sweet, with just a hint of tartness. The black tea is brisk. Nice with lunch.

This is a very pleasant cup of tea. Relaxing and vegetative. Brothy. Nice. Sweet with a nice savory overtone. I like it.

Had this for the first time today on a mission to find the perfect earl grey. pretty good cup of tea, with a good helping of bergamot. The aroma when opened up is quite pleasant and makes me really crave a cup. I dont think its my all time favorite earl grey but a pretty darn good one.

Finishing off the last of this that TeaEqualsBliss sent me. (Thanks!)

I really love the aroma of this tea. Yum! Sweet and creamy. This cup is not as astringent as the last one was. Nice!

This is a tasty breakfast blend. Strong and brisk. A good tea to have on hand, especially on those days when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare tea but still need a good, brisk cuppa!

Everybody needs a library of good no-fuss morning teas for the days when the eyes…just…don’t….want….to….open….

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!

The aroma that is wafting from my teacup at the moment is quite yummy – it is very vanilla-almond-esque! It almost smells like dessert!

The flavor is also quite nice. The black tea is strong and astringent, the almonds taste sweet and toasty, and the vanilla is smooth and creamy. I’m loving this tea and I’m surprised that this much flavor came from a teabag!

Just finishing a cup of this tea – the last that I have of this tea too! It was a pretty good tea. Here is my full-length review of it: http://sororiteasisters.com/2010/11/04/pomegranate-green-tea-from-the-tea-nation/

This is a decent black tea. The black tea is surprisingly strong for a Ceylon base, and it is not to be overpowered by the tropical fruit. Sweet with hints of bitterness in the background. An interesting cup that I think is even better iced than hot. A good summertime tea!

Not a terrible Earl Grey, but not the best I’ve tried either… this one rests at a happy medium. A fair amount of bergamot that doesn’t taste artificial or perfume-y (although the aroma worried me a bit before I took sip because it didn’t quite smell like bergamot but rather a bergamot-based perfume)

Nice!

Starting out the work day, it just seems right to start green then move into the black zone as the day goes on…wonder if I am the only one who thinks this way…for some it may be the other way around…or no black at all…

Good way to start the morning…wondering about making the leap to loose tea, how different it will be. I like a little flavoring in my green, next to Jasmine, Raspberry is my favorite.

I am down to this tea after finishing off another box of Twinings Irish Breafast.

I have figured out that I really like this tea with a little bit of milk. It doesn’t overpower the tea and it just rounds out the flavor a bit. I even got my boy to try some and he liked it fairly well. He prefers Numi though.
