Rooibos is a sharp-tasting tea and the vanilla in this is strong and tends to soften it a little.

Nice fresh spring oolong base, with a little bit of seaweed. Great berry flavor that is enhanced by a subtle, but noticeable floral undertone.

Tea #38 from Another Traveling Tea Box

This is a nice mint tea with a background of vanilla. The addition of the vanilla is really nice, and adds a depth I wasn’t expecting to find. It hits at the end of the sip and reminds me of buttermints — a little creamy and quite smooth. Really yummy blend~!

Editing to add: I just got the coolest mug ever. The Cheshire Cat disappears when I add tea.

That mug is pretty awesome. We carried those at my work about a month ago. I probly should’ve grabbed one before they sold out. Lol.

I took the little bit of this out of the HH teabox! These teabags you can fill are so handy for rooibos blends. Much more enjoyable for me when I don’t have a billion wood chips sitting on my throat. I’m glad I bought two boxes of 100 from Red Leaf (two different sizes – but I think the big ones are easier to fill.. even with rooibos it is tough to fill the smaller ones). But I might drink so much more rooibos because of these teabags that I will go through these filter bags fast.

Anyway, this tea is lovely! A nice candy like strawberry flavor… I’m confused by the description mentioning three fruits… and none of them are at all like strawberry. I swear it’s strawberry! The rooibos is a great base for it. Nice!

Also, I should mention I’m such a Steepster geek that I can’t wait until I have time to add all the teas to my cupboard that I acquired from these tea boxes (and also remove the teas from my cupboard that I put in tea boxes!)

What tea bags where? I’ve been away for a while and I haven’t caught up yet.

Tea #13 from Another Traveling Tea Box

This is a really nice vanilla mint tea, it will be great at Christmas time. I liked the addition of vanilla, it gives the tea a little something different than most peppermint/black blends. It should be great for the moments near christmas where I want something sweet, but don’t need to eat another bite.

I think I’ll pull a little bit of this out of the TTB. There is a fairly good size amount so I’ll pass on the rest for everyone to enjoy.

This sounds delicious. I actually checked out their website and they only ship within the US :(.

Another one from the TT. It’s been a while since I’ve had a Rooibos. I liked the description of this one, tho! WICKED GOOD! Let’s see if it IS…

It smells like rooibos and that’s about it.

The taste is…not bad. Not Wicked Good, but not bad.

I can taste something sweet…like sugary-sweet, maybe chocolate – but not sure. I’m not getting much cream – or any cream – and I am not ‘finding’ that Pie-Like comparison. It’s not highly flavored. I’m left wanting more of that Boston Cream Pie for it to live up to its name. Again, not bad tasting, just not memorable or true to its name.
