Used Dark Chocolate almond milk in lieu of sweetener/creamer. Yummy! Chocolate tea for breakfast :-)

Smooth, buttery, floral. But no discernible cherry taste, despite the description. This is probably because the rose petals overpower it. Blegh. They aren’t terrible, but I’d prefer ti without them. Why did I order this? (It was a very long time ago, to be fair.) I should’ve given this tea away to someone it would suit better, but instead I horded it and finally opened it and drank it and am underwhelmed.

This is my new go-to iced tea! It’s easy to brew (1 teabag for a 2 quart pitcher, steep 5 min in 1 qt hot water then add 1 qt cold) and there’s no sweetener required — the mango flavor adds just enough!

I found this a pleasant surprise! I added a spoonful of milk as suggested in Lupicia’s newsletter, and had it with a side of dark chocolate creme-filled cookies, which was ideal. The dry tea(bag) had a slight musty smell (it is a pu-erh!) but in the brew all I noticed was a hint of earthiness. The chocolate and strawberry flavors are just a hint, which is perfect because so many flavored teas are cloying in this respect. I may have to buy some of this (but first I have a pile of Lupicia samples to get through!)

trying to make a margariTEA, based on a friend’s description. I thought she said that she mixed equal parts frozen margarita mix and tea, but that tasted a bit too much like straight up margarita mix still, so I upped it to 2 parts tea. It may be because the tea I am using is light in body/flavor – an iced green tea, sweetened with agave & sugar. Not sure if I was supposed to use sweetened, but that’s what I have on hand and felt like using. I can still taste the puckery lime so I think it’s ok. Will let it chill and mingle in the fridge for a bit and come back to it later. It’s going to be a hot day, so hopefully this will be nice to cool off with.

Definitely think going 2x was the right choice. I always use enough tea for the entire volume of my beverage in something like this. Speaking of which- you gave me a great idea! Check my tasting notes soon. :)

I think the ideal mixer would be 2 parts strongly brewed, lightly sweetened iced black tea to 1 part frozen non-alcoholic margarita mix. And I suppose an ounce or two of tequila might be nice…
