I’m drinking the Red Velvet Cake tea right now…still have 12 new teas I need to try!!!

Artp said

is that red velvet good? I see it every time I go to the one in the city, but haven’t gotten to try it yet

Artp- it’s soooooooooooo good!

Artp said

really? I have to pick it up then! Especially as a gift; at least half the people in my life are red velvet addicts.

Lariel select said

Now I want some cake flavoured tea.

TeaLover58 said

Arpt-It’s very good! I have a cold and I can still smell the flavor of cake in my house when I make this tea.

Tina12 said

I wantto try glitter and gold, bear trap and pink flamingo next.

Lariel select said

Pink Flamingo sounds like a cocktail with one of those paper umbrellas.

TeaLover58 said

@ Tina12-I saw a video review on glitter and gold, and the individual said it was really good. It has a really strong cinnamon aroma, and I’m excited to try it. Bear trap smells like trail mix, pretty excited to try that one too. Pink flamingo smells the best of the three (like oranges), so that’s the next one I’ll be drinking once I finish my Kiwi’s Big Adventure, which I somehow left off of my list of tea that came in the mail.

@ Lariel-I agree. It has a REALLY strong citrus smell to it, probably the best smelling tea next to Mom’s Apple Pie that I purchased.

I’m bummed out. My Upton order was supposed to arrive today but the USPS blew me off because of the storm. :(

TeaLover58 said

I hate when this happens! So disappointing. For me, I live out in the middle of nowhere, so sometimes I have to track my packages down because it was delivered to the wrong house or they left it at the post office because they couldn’t find my house.

I just got some David’s tea in:
Banana Dream Pie
Hot Lips (Organic)
Swampwater
Ginseng Oolong
Guayusa (Organic)
Licorice Twist
mom’s Apple Pie
Plastic Bombilla
Green Mate

How is the Banana Dream Pie? (mmmmm banana)

TeaLover58 said

Let me know what you think about Licorice Twist. I love licorice, but I’m afraid it won’t taste good as a tea.

Lariel select said

What is guayusa? I think I had that with rooibos once. I want to try the swapwater, mostly because of the name.

It’s tea made of leaves from the holly tree in Ecuador. I had a sample of it from Tea District. It’s definitely different in taste. Kind of silky too.

Tina12 said

I haven’t tried any of it yet but banana dream pie smells like dark chocolate/ bourbon /banana. Licorice twist smells has a strong mint smell hopefully the licorice taste shines through it. Guayusa smells very green like green tea, it’s an herb that is supposed to provide energy. Swampwater smells fruity,like kind of fruit punch. Opening them into their tins makes me want to drink them all now!

The copper tins are gorgeous!
