Much better this time around. I’ve had far too much tea today. I can’t so much taste the rum, and I like my other coconut green better.

DaisyChubb

Maybe this one would be a good swapping tea… >_>;

Erin Hurley

When I swap. I give you a bit of all the business I own!

YANA! Dr Who S3E14.

With Paris tea? Perfect blend. Distinctly spicy tasting this morning. I think Paris adapts well to my mood.

LittleMewBrew order came today!

The smell is… off-putting to me. Smells like grape medicine. I don’t wanna take the syrup!

I added sugar and cream out of fear. Lots of it.

It tastes like medicine. I’m sorry! I want to love it! I’ve enjoyed these teas so much! I must have been grape traumatized as a child.

I know what you mean about the smell of this tea. To me, it smelled like bad, bad, bad, cinnamon potpourri. I liked the flavor once it was brewed though. I guess we can’t love them all :/

The Purrfect Cup

I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it. :(

I put Diet Squirt in it…. Do this. Do this often.

Ashley Bain

good idea. I love Squirt. I don’t drink diet pop though because I try to avoid aspartame and other fake sugars.

Let me tell you why I’m drinking this, and not my new box of Vanilla Apricot White Tazo….

I went to Whole Foods this morning and bought two new teas, One I thought was a coconut rooibos (it was green tea, my bad) and the other was Vanilla Apricot White Tazo… I thought. I walked to the cupboard, opened the box and pulled out a Lipton tea bag. Strange, a Lipton sample in a Tazo box? Wierd… and another? and ANOTHER?!!!

SABATOGE! Someone stuffed this box with bummers…. :(

At least I have some other new teas to experiment with, thanks Ashley! I love everything mint. This is all hot and cold at the same time! Perfect for cozying up on the couch with for some CSI before beddybye!!! Gracias friend!

SimplyJenW

A box full of bummers IS tragic! I hope the store will sort it for you…..

Jenn

Foiled by a box-o-bummers… tragic to be sure.

Ashley Bain

what the HECK. who would do that. and why 0_o

Erin Hurley

I dunno…. to steal good teabags? I thought maybe they bought a box of lipton tea they had stuffed with the quality tea bags, but I don’t think they sell Lipton there o_0 So I have no clue.

I brewed a tall dark pitcher of this in the fridge. Oh my criminy! Everyone at work drinks Passion. I like it so much better cold than hot! Nice on the porch on a hella hot day. No sweetener required, but it didn’t hurt!

Ashley Bain

when I worked at Starbucks we always had iced pitches of this on hand. It was actually pretty good mixed with…. something I can’t remember right now, damnit.

Ashley Bain

or pitchers*

SimpliciTEA

I’m glad you rated this tea. I still have a few bags of this left. I wasn’t too impressed with it hot. Maybe I’ll have to try it iced. Thanks!

Erin Hurley

It’s so pretty to watch too! I bet it’s good with lemonade!

Megs

I totally agree with you – it’s so much better iced. When I worked at Starbucks, we figured out that the Passion Tea Lemonade (easy to make at home), tastes pretty good with vodka as well ;-)

Ashley Bain

Maybe thaaat was it. Passion Tea Lemonade. That sounds right.

I’ve made a huge mistake…..

thought this was rooibos for some reason

DaisyChubb

Why is this a huge mistake? That sounds bad! :(
Oh noes I must know more

Erin Hurley

I steeped it as though it were rooibos. Talk about a bitter MESS!

Erin Hurley

I plan on doing a cold brew later today :3

DaisyChubb

Ohhhh badness!
haha I hope your cold brew serves you much better!

I’m not so sure what I’m drinking is organic. It doesn’t say so on the label, but I’m sure it’s Genmaicha with Matcha Blend by Den’s Tea….

This is my first and only Genmaicha, and I adore it most of the time. Here’s the problem. I made a big batch of it iced and well, I’m not digging it… It’s okay though, i’ll rate it as if I was smart and brewed hot ;) Toasty and tasty!

Hey guys guess what? It’s another ASHLEY TEA!

This is a better time for honeybush. Busy work night, followed by a nice swim. I’m health nutting like nuts. My face looks thin but dag nabbit I’m too sissy to jump on the scale!

Steeping steeping. Smells wonderful! Strong strawberries. Dark dark brew. Waiting for it to cool is the worstest part! I’m getting a lot of cinnamon in here. Not as buttery/crust-ish as the Coconut Cheesecake, but It’s still yummy. As I’m getting to the bottom I’m tasting more strawberry, but it isn’t overwhelming. All in all I liked it! Might not be something I’d buy, but It’s just what I needed before bed. Goodnight everyone!
