I love chocolate so when I read that this had hints of cocoa, had to try it. Was not disappointed. Adding a bit of Agave only made it better. Makes a great morning brew, starting the day off right.

Tried this tea for the first time and love it. Was looking for a strong morning tea. Something that would stand up to cream. This is the one for me.

This tea is smooth with a bit of bitterness if brewed too strong. Goes with anything from toast and jam to bacon and eggs.

Received this as a sample, wishing I had more. This tea was very warming in a chocolate since. There was a sweetness that added to the pleasure. It was given a very perfect name. It really is a rhapsody on the though

Had this tea for the first time 18 days ago. Brewed some up this morning, still yummy. Then before heading to work I rebrewed the leaves up to 6 times before it looked a little light in color. The best part is that I had some great ice tea for dinner. Better than yummy.

Tried this Assam for the first time about a week ago. Then brewed some this morning. I really like this tea, it has an earthy caramal note that I love. Although oolong is my favorite, I think I will have to add this as one of my favorites.

Last Day of April and it still feels cold this morning. Promises to get up to 60 today, but cloudy. Felt I needed a strong pick-me-up. Pulled out the O’Sullivan’s and brewed up some. I think I"m going to make it through now. I can always count on this brew to do just that. It’s a staple in my tea cupboard.

Know as the Five Color Tea. First time I had this tea tea was at tea tasting at the the Tea Haus in Ann Arbor. Love it then still do now. A slight woodsy taste with fruity undertones. This is even after brewing several times.

Made my way over to Ann Arbor this weekend and stopped by the Tea Haus. The tea cupboard was a little empty. Really like this tea even if it’s a little pricey. I love the carmel, malty flavors. One can pick out the fruity flavors as well. Great for sipping on an overcast gloomy spring day.

I always try and get the most out of my leaves, so I steeped the same leaves for a second time. Not bad, really, just not as good as the first steeping.
