drank Blueberry Merlot by Tea Forte
135 tasting notes

I have to start by saying that I am not a big fan of blueberries. It’s 8:20 AM and I’m getting off of a ridiculously miserable night at work. I received my samples yesterday and I am very excited to try them.

I read the reviews while it was steeping and I was nervous to take the first sip. No sweetener/milk.
I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is, but something makes me feel very nostalgic while drinking this tea in bed.

I do enjoy it though. I’m trying not to. Damnit, I can NOT enjoy something that tastes like blueberries!

Would I buy this again? Possibly. It’s something light that I can drink before bed without any bitter aftertaste.

So is this blend your own dealy worth it? I’ve been wondering. With the high rating I’m guessing so.

There was a deal where you only paid for shipping so I got in on that! It’s a ton of tea too for the price :)

drank Rooibos Chai by Teavana

So here I am, the night before a big trip to San Fran. I’ve packed up all of my favorite teas. Now I’m checking to see what’s left behind. Here I find Rooibos Chai. I bought it recently before a night at work when I was in a bit of a rush. I don’t remember disliking it, but the aroma is strong and intimidating. I decided to brew up a before-bed-pot and settle in.

I actually enjoyed this more than I remember. I’m very new to tea so a description is hard to fabricate. The cinnamon is a bit strong, but a bit of milk settled that down. I find my mouth feeling dry after each sip. Other than that, it quiets the mind and body enough to hit the hay!
