having this instead of hot cocoa (except then I topped it with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream so I guess that’s almost as bad in terms of calories & sugar!)

Mmm.. sounds good. I have mixed feelings about this tea. I haven’t willed myself to order some yet. Some say it’s the MOST creamy chocolate tea they’ve tried.. others say it’s not really with all that much chocolate/dessert flavor. What do you think?

I like this one but to be honest (and I may be in the minority) this was not very dessert-y to me..

I added about 1 tsp half & half, instead of the several teaspoons warm milk and steamed milk suggested, but ti was still rich and creamy. It is rather like a grown-up, caffeinated version of Nestle Strawberry Quick, because as Auggy pointed out, strawberry + vanilla = strawberry quick (aka “pink milk”) if that is your childhood memory of those flavors.

This is nice, but doesn’t really conjure up the holidays to me. I love Lupicia’s Strawberry Green with matcha and plan to order some early next year, but this one I will let pass.

drank Smoky Black T-Dust by Sanctuary T

I toasted a piece of Fabulous Flats™ Whole-Grain Tandoori Naan, slathered some Tribe Lemon Hummus on it, then sprinkled over just a bit of Smoky Black T-Dust to play up the “grilled” flavor of the charred bits on the (really good for prepackaged) naan.

I’m also drinking a V-8, and it occurs to me this would be good over that instead of just pepper… or on tomato soup… or on a bloody mary…

I LOVE hummus, but lemon? Hmmm…

TeaEqualsBliss

Lemon juice is IN many Hummus, actually. Of course if it were Lemon Hummus Specifically I would assume that the lemon would be intense. I’m ok with that! I think lemon in hummus is great…at least what I have tasted thus far! :P

TeaEqualsBliss

I could go on and on about Hummus, actually, lol, but I won’t…if anyone is ever looking for some funky hummus ideas – let me know! teahee!

Cofftea

TeaEqualsBliss- send any and all hummus ideas my way:) I saw a pumpkin hummus once. Don’t know if I’m that brave though.

This sounds like it would be fabulous on a Bloody Mary! I looove Bloody Marys—and with tea dust too? Sounds perfect! :)

I thought this would go perfectly with some leftover spiced apples and sweet potato casserole.

However, after two sips (one naked, one with half&half), I dumped it out. Something about this blend just doesn’t work. It tastes watery, papery and stale to me (ad I steeped it 5 min not the 2-4 suggested!). I’m a licorice hater, so maybe a licorice lover would find some redeeming value. However, I think this blends problems go beyond licorice preference.

My mother bought me a whole tin of this for Christmas. :( I don’t know what I’m going to do…

I’ve had this twice now, and am surprised at how much I like it since I generally don’t care for cinnamon in teas. I bought this bag as a gift for my mother (at the MD Renaissance Festival of all places) because she loves cinnamon spice blends (Harney’s Hot Cinnamon Spice and Bigelow’s Cinnamon Stick are probably her faves). Anyway, she gave me a couple serving back in t-sacs so I could try it too. It smells like a bowl of potpourri when dry, but when brewed it mellows out a bit and the apricot and cinnamon are well-balanced and compliment each other nicely to make a soothing fall tea. The apricot floor is not very strong, or particularly “fresh” tasting, but neither is it overwhelmingly fake.

Eastern Shore has quite a range of blends. Maybe I’ll pick another one up from Herbalist’s Delight next time I’m at the fest (I go maybe every 2-3 years now).
