I don’t know exactly how much milk and sugar my hubby added to my mug, but it was PERFECT this am. Sweet, creamy , floral. A heavenly cup of tea for a Sunday morning

drank Lady Grey by Twinings
2269 tasting notes

Had a big mug this am (the Copco mug I won from bite of the Best, actually) with milk and sugar. It definitely helped wake me up! My tin is almost gone (maybe 6-7 tsp left?) but I have plenty of Paris to drink when it’s gone, plus some Lavender Earl Grey (Revolution), and a ton of Tippy Earl Grey (GM) that I won recently but haven’t opened…

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

drank Pearfect White Tea by Honest Tea

Meh. Rather heavy, for a white tea, and a bit bitter, for a sweetened tea. Won’t buy again.

Preparation
Iced

prepared using “So Delicious” brand vanilla flavored, sweetened coconut milk (I sifted the matcha first to get most of the sugar out, since it’s a sweetened milk – I’ll use the matcha sugar as yogurt or ice cream topping or something else)

Sifting it- great idea! Although I’d be interested as to why it only got a 45… you stopped after explaining how you made it lol.

drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons

this actually smelled like chocolate and rose, and tasted a bit that way too. I appreciate the complexity, but would only drink this once in a blue moon.

drank Watermelon Mint by Rooibee Red Tea
2269 tasting notes

just as you finish tasting the sweet watermelon, the mint cuts in with it’s refreshing zing. This is the most unique, and refreshing of the Rooibee blends. I think it’s my favorite simply because it brings something unique to the mix, and it keeps your tastebuds engaged and the flavor combo stimulates your brain. At least my brain feels that way…

Preparation
Iced
Rooibee

You and I agree! This is my favorite flavor as well!

drank Paradise Green by Lupicia
2269 tasting notes

It is a bit weak in the flavor dept. (as others have mentioned), but at least I knew to expect that. Basically a smooth, light green tea with a hint of tropical flavor. I prefer the stronger flavor of their strawberry & vanilla, but this isn’t terrible, and would probably be good iced.

note: I opened the sachet and dumped it into my mesh basket style steeper. Also used about 6 oz water because I couldn’t stand to use only 4oz …

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 2 min, 0 sec

It may be light on flavor, but it sure is pretty!

Janefan

yes, it sure is! It looks almost as good as the picture.

slightly bitter, will steep for less time next time. Looking forward to finishing my bags and trying the full leaf sachets. May order the real deal this fall (drinking last year’s batch now – less than ideal)
