A nice bold & lightly malty cup.
Sorry for the lame reviews.

Backtracking, this was my 2nd cup of the morning, enjoyed with breakfast.
Just came in from planting my 3 San Marzano Tomato plants & doing some weeding. My garden is gradually coming into shape. I have tons more weeding to do, tons more stuff to plant. More terracing to do, etc. So far I’m eating asparagus, kale, collards, onions, & lettuces. I had a few carrots too. I saw the radishes I planted last week starting to sprout, & in another week or so I’m sure things will be coming up like crazy everywhere! This evening I noticed some volunteer purple potatoes coming up, & the annual volunteer sunflowers that I love! I planted sunflowers once, years ago. I only grow them for the birds, especially the yellow finches who come. I’ve had sunflowers every year since. I always transpant them to grow along my back fence, because they get taller every year & I have to tie them to the fence for support!
My end of the day tea count is 223.
This tea? It’s ok. I’m gonna drink it in the bubble bath while reading the latest issue of ‘Organic Gardening’. The perfect end to a perfect day.
Tasty desert like tea for the end of the day :)
OK, it’s time to drink some tea that doesn’t have caffeine in it!
I think this may be my official favorite Rooibos blend. It’s lemony & tasty. What more can I ask for?
This tea smells so GOOD! Sweet and fruity!
And it tastes as good as it smells. Delicious strawberry notes that are both sweet and tart, with a luscious mango flavor that melds beautifully with the strawberry and the fresh taste of the green tea.

Just what I needed to start my morning!
As always, I went a little heavy on the tea, & it was a bold & tasty cup!
Admittedly, this was my least favorite of the three, which was unexpected, as I love ginger! The truth is, it wasn’t bad at all, it just wasn’t really all that gingery & was really kind of heavy on the nutmeg.
This Peach Melba was also quite good, with a juicy & bright flavor!
So today I discovered ‘Trail Lodge Tea’, a local company who was selling tea at the farmer’s market. Most of their ingredients are fair trade & organic, which is a plus!
This was the first one I chose to sample, & it was quite nice! It really reminded me of lemon pudding, both in the flavor & the smell, possibly with a graham cracker crust (but I might have imagined that).
I tried all 3 of the rooibos blends, & this was my favorite.
A really nice caffeine free blend. I find that I prefer blends with both rooibos and honeybush in them as opposed to pure rooibos. I like the way the two herbs compliment each other. The honeybush makes the rooibos taste better.
A delicious cherry almond flavor. Really tasty. Here is the full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/02/cherry-and-almond-rooibos-from-trail-lodge-tea/
Lighter on the Pumpkin – especially on the front end of the sip and greater on the spice. Close to the end of the sip more pumpkin – same amount of spice – but more creamy.
My fave part is that everything tastes TRUE. Not artificial…not fake…nice spices and pumpkin.
Another reason I wanted to drink this one at the moment is because I was looking for something with clove in it and was unable to find any chai in my stash. This did the trick!
How on EARTH could I be low on CHAI?
Full review on http://sororiteasisters.com/ on the 23rd but for now here are the snippits:
Eggnog from Trail Lodge Tea has a distinct aroma of spices and custard when steeped. From the visual aspect, white tea, is my favorite tea. The dry leaf is beautiful, downy, and whole.
There is a lacking in the sweetness for me personally, yet I did not try it with any added sugar, so I can’t say if that would have helped or not.
Overall this is a good eggnog blend and it does indeed taste like eggnog. Its creamy, and it has the right flavors with the spice and vanilla bean. I don’t know if this is one I would personally go right out and order, yet I would suggest if you enjoy this flavor profile to try some. I know Trail Lodge Teas has several other teas in their arsenal that I adore, so now and then I would probably add this to my cart before checking out.
I agree with LiberTEAS this is a good pumpkin pie tea.
The tea is very present and the spices are really nice. I would also like a little more pumpkin but overall it is one of the better PP teas I have had :)
This is seriously yummy! The peach is so sweet and juicy tasting, and the raspberry adds just the right tart touch to the cup. There is a creaminess that weaves its way throughout the sip, and the nutty flavor of the honeybush and rooibos … really just works so well with this… and gives it a very dessert-y kind of taste.
Liberteas Thank YOU!
This is a sturdy blend of multiple black teas. I didn’t find it smooth like Liberteas did but I found it strong and a bit crusty with tad of smokiness to it. But first and foremost bold! I like it!
This smells so festive … very much like eggnog! It’s making me want to start trimming the Christmas Tree (I’ve not had time for that yet, I’ve been busily working on some things I needed to get done first, but, I think that I’ll finally be able to work on the tree and decorations this coming week!)
Seriously, this is my kind of eggnog. I like eggnog, but, I don’t drink it much. My husband often indulges in a few glasses every year, but, I find that I can’t even finish one glass because it’s just too sweet and creamy for me. And I thought I was the one with the sweet tooth in the house. But, eggnog is just TOO MUCH for me.
But, the green tea and white tea give this cup a lightness and a freshness that I wouldn’t experience in a glass of real eggnog, but I still taste some creaminess and sweetness from vanilla and a custard-y like taste … and a lovely hint of nutmeg. So, this has the elements of eggnog that I like, but without being too creamy and cloying.
I’m loving this tea!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!
Unlike my SororiTea Sister, I like bananas. I wouldn’t say that I LOVE them, I am not crazy about the fruit … you know, just eating a banana, that’s not something I’ll do often. I do love to add a banana or two to my smoothies so I usually have some bananas on hand. I don’t like banana runts, although I love banana ice pops, I love banana cupcakes, and I love banana tea. And I really like Banana Cream pie, although it isn’t usually my first choice when it comes to pie. (I’d prefer lemon meringue, if you’re curious)
So, I was really excited to try this Banana Cream Pie flavored tea!
This is really yum. The scent of the dry leaf is really quite odd, I must admit, It smells very little like bananas (that is to say, I hardly smell any banana scent here at all), and the same is true for the brewed tea. Very little banana smell.
But it TASTES like bananas. Actually, after the first three or four sips, my palate was able to assemble the flavors and it tastes like Banana Coconut Cream Pie. Yes, I know the name of it is only Banana Cream Pie, but the coconut is a strong enough flavor that it should be considered part of the name of this tea.
I taste banana, and vanilla cream custard, I taste coconut and I even taste pie crust that has been lightly seasoned with allspice. The tea is there too, and it’s all constructed in a very careful balance to create a real Banana Coconut Cream Pie experience in a teacup. Very nicely done, indeed!
There are a lot of pumpkin pie flavored teas out there, especially during this time of year. Some are better than others – this is one of the good ones.
From the moment I tore into the package, I could smell the pumpkin pie goodness! The smell filled the kitchen – you’d swear I was baking a pie.
The flavor is very pleasing – the black tea base is a solid, strong flavor, it isn’t one of those wimpy black tea blends that allows the flavor to do all the work. I like that I taste TEA here. The flavor of the pumpkin is a bit more mellow than I would like, I think, it isn’t a dominant flavor … but it’s there. The spices are warm and very delicious.
Overall, a very pleasing pumpkin pie blend.
This is a wonderful black tea blend – perfect for a breakfast blend or an anytime blend, really. It is rich and robust enough to serve as a that important first cup of the day, but, it has a crisp lightness to it too, making it a nice choice for afternoon sipping, especially when it’s cold and the wind is howling like it is this afternoon! It has a nice coziness factor!
Very pleasant – rich, smooth, almost creamy. Would make a good latte if you wanted one, but, I like it just fine served straight up too. A really good blend!
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!
I’m loving this. It tastes so bright and deliciously orange-y, but I see where it’s getting that danish-y connection too. It has a pastry-like taste to it, sort of nutty and sweet and buttery. It has a very cozy and comforting kind of taste to it, like dessert … only without all the fat and calories!
I like this one.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this rooibos.
This is seriously yummy. If you like Tiramisu but don’t want to indulge in all the calories, this is a tasty substitute. Sure, I’d rather eat the Tiramisu too, but, it’s not something I could eat everyday… this tisane, though … I think I could drink this every day. It’s yummy. Chocolate-y, caramel-y, sweet, and creamy. Hints of coffee. Rich and warm and really very good.
This smells AMAZING!!!!! It’s like Lemon Custard and Cakey-Bakey-Heaven!
Yeah! Much like Lemon PIE – the aroma makes me melt!
The flavor is much like the aroma but it has a sugary-sweet flavoring popping in and out thru-out the sip…reminiscent of lemon drop candy…in addition to the natural sweetness of both the honeybush and the rooibos AND the natural lemon bits! YAY!
I think this is neat because it features both rooibos and green rooibos AND honeybush – not to mention the lemon bits and calendula and cornflower petals! These ingredients work tremendously well together!
This is a treat – that is for sure! YUM!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this chai. It’s amazingly good.
There is a lot going on with this chai, but, it all works together so very well! It is a chai blend that I think can appeal to a wide range of tea drinkers because of the different flavors that are represented here, and what I like is that no one component overpowers the rest. It is a very pleasing balance between warmly spiced chai, black tea, chocolate and mint. It isn’t overly spicy, but it is warm enough to tell you that you’re drinking a spiced chai. The black tea is a bit mellow in the midst of these other strong flavors, but it isn’t completely obscured. The chocolate is there and the mint, giving this a dessert-y kind of goodness. This is one of those chai blends that I sip and elicit an audible mmmm~ afterward.
Let me start off by thanking TeaEqualsBliss for writing her review of this tea. It was enough to get me to buy it. This tea is amazing. I already know the next time I steep this tea I am going to up the steeping time by a minute or two. My first thought is that this chai is a cool twist on the traditional chai. The chocolate is subtle enough that it is in the background, and doesn’t overpower the other spices. Add a little milk after steeping for a nice after dinner drink or a great way to start the day. My thanks again to TeaEqualsBliss.
