I was at Trader Joe’s last week, and picked up this tea. There I am, standing in Trader Joe’s, pulling up Steepster to see if the tea is any good or not.

I tried it last night. I thought it was pretty good. It was different, but I seem to like a whole lot of white teas out there. I could taste the pear and the white tea…not so sure about the ginger. There are plenty of tea bags left to try to figure it all out.

This tea isn’t going to break any boundaries of new flavors. It isn’t groundbreaking. It isn’t fancy. But it’s nice enough.

someone here decided to make me a cup of tea since I seemed down. Not down so much as perplexed as every few minutes everything for my schedule changes and then I am supposed to run in a different direct. I always seem to be behind too (as in oh you are going to AK in sept not next year, why don’t’ you have everything lined up. I need a presentation for Thursday, oh no how about in 2 weeks and no presentation). So this tea stopped me, hey this is a decent green its got hints of jasmine but I wouldn’t have said “jasmine” if I hadn’t checked to see where it came from. More of a floral sweet green not very deep in flavor but a nice sipping drink that pulled me right out of the artificial race.

Flavors: Floral, Sweet

This is actual a travel staple for me. The strong vanilla and cinnamon notes tame bad water taste on the road. So for vanilla tea week I broke out a box with the happy lemur looking at me while drinking his tea I just had to cheer up. Its foggy out and I can feel the warm cinnamon opening my eyes and lifting the fog. The black on this tea is a bit harsh something I like in a wake up morning tea. The vanilla is strong in the scent and mixes on the tongue with the cinnamon. Adding some honey enhances the vanilla sweetness. I think its great for a bagged tea and for the price! Also you can’t really over steep, I’ve accidentally left it over 10 minutes with no additional bitterness.

I love this one. I wish it was available year round.

yes I stock up and store it sealed up in plastic boxes in a cool spot so I have enough to make it through the year. I just went shopping and found a new TJ’s tea coconut lemongrass green. I’m not sure if that’s something I’d like but the price was right so its hopped into the cart

ugh, this is my favorite tea! it’s just so delicious, i can’t get over it. sometimes i get strong butterscotch, other times cinnamon oatmeal raisin cookie. i was devastated to know it was only seasonal so i searched far and wide to find it at other stores.

Rosehips- you’re in luck! this tea is the exact same thing as Celestial Seasonings’ Nutcracker Sweet, which is available year round! if u can’t find it in stores, try the CS website :)

*i’m 99.9% sure it is the same tea, believe me, i have several boxes of each and there’s no difference!

Work buddy brought me a snack bag of this to try—it’s just lovely! Light and leans heavy to the sweet coconut cream side. First cuppa was so sweet I added just a pinch of fresh leaf and am attempting a second steep, chilled. Will be tasty for a feet-up after VBS Day 1. I have two phenomenal teenage helpers—one of whom showed up in fedora and trench coat and cheerfully provided secret agent code names for my little pod of nine-year-olds. Henceforth, you may refer to me as Captain Bigelow.

I usually don’t buy mixed teas but I saw this in Trader Joe’s and I’ve never seen loose tea there before so I figured I’d give it a shot. It has a nice fresh taste to it, the coconut is definitely present but not overpowering. It slightly reminds me of thai curry, but I guess that is just the coconut flavor. Overall a nice different tea for the 6 dollars it cost me.

Sipping this tea, I get no hint of white tea or pomegranate or even lemongrass as is listed in the ingredients. This tea is an assault of hibiscus, nothing more.
