This tea is so smooth, and overall, it’s really tasty. It’s naturally sweet and very pleasant. The mango, however, is kind of barely there. It’s present in the aroma but only faintly there in the actual taste. In fact, am I really even tasting it, or am I imagining the taste because I know it should be there? I feel like my mind’s playing games with me.

I like this tea, but it’s not amazing. I received it as part of a sample with my online order. It’s pretty tasty, but it smells kind of strongly, and it’s a little too nutty for my taste. Lots of almond, not much oolong. It reminds me a lot of Teavana’s almond biscotti, actually.

This morning, I woke up and immediately entered a state of despair, realizing that I had run out of honey, rock sugar, stevia, and white sugar. Absolutely nothing to sweeten my tea. As it was so cold it felt like there were small minions of Satan nibbling at my face that morning, I didn’t want to make a run to the store just to enjoy this tea, so I took it without anything in it. It was pleasant enough. There’s a really nice, warm nuttiness to the tea. Not as much chocolate as the tea itself would suggest, but that was okay, too. I enjoyed this tea a lot. It gave me a nice morning kick, and I fretted no longer.

This was when my stroke of genius kicked in.

Now, the tea is nice without anything in it, but I thought it could be a bit sweeter. i baked pumpkin snicker-doodle cookies a while ago, and I had saved up some of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar mixture that coated the outside of the cookies in a small container just in case i had to whip up another batch. So I spooned a bit into my cup of nutty goodness, and it turned out lovely. However, now it was missing another thing… a snicker-doodle cookie.

So now I am a little saddened that I did not bake more cookies.

Positives: nutty, warm, clean, characteristic mate kick, instant distress relief
Negatives: not enough chocolate, could stand to be a bit sweeter, not having any cookies

A friend of mine bought this tea for me from India. It came in a cute little navy sachet in a gift set that also included Darjeeling and Assam. Slightly floral and smells pretty nice, and it tastes really clean. I like this tea a lot, and I can imagine it becoming a morning go-to. Takes milk very well.

So I hate fruity tea. It always tastes really gross an artificial to me, even if the fruit flavor is completely from real fruit. I think it’s weird.

However, this one tastes great. It’s sweet, refreshing, and not at all artificial. I loved it in the sample pack with the German rock sugar!

A very nice Earl, and I love the idea of loose leaf in a bag. Better than tea filters, I think.

Really great with a touch of milk and some rock sugar, but kind of bland by itself. The almond comes out just fine, but the actual black tea seems a bit on the weak side.

I’m Connie. I’m 20. I’m a second year in college. I’m insane. I’m complex. I like to dance in circles and sing crazy songs that make no sense whatsoever. I like smiling so much that my cheeks get sore. I like talking to my friends about anything and everything that comes to my mind. I also like helping people, although I’m not always good at it. I love people who make me laugh until I cry. I love people who would care to call me when I don’t feel like smiling. I have the strangest laugh. It changes each time, but you can always tell it’s me. I like knowing random things that will never help anyone in life. I like hugs, but I don’t ask or reach out for them unless you’re one of my closest girls. I much prefer when someone hugs me. My tone of voice changes depending on who I’m talking to and my mood. When I get excited I get a bit more high-pitched. I tend to cover up my true thoughts and feelings with randomness and retardedness. I’m overly self-conscious. Function is more than form in my mind. I really am not sure what goes on in my mind. And those are some random facts about me. :]
