I finally have a few days off from work. And do you know what I’m going to do? Drink obscene amounts of tea! I’ve missed my tea :( Anyways, I’ve been saving the last of this sample for when I can just enjoy it. I love this tea! It’s sooo good. It reminds me of those cinnamon almonds you get at sporting events or any kind of event, actually. It’s full of cinnamon, almond, and custard flavors. Mmmm :)

Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Custard, Sugar

This was a sample sent to me by Shmiracles. I usually try to stay away from lapsang blends but this one had a different aroma to it. It pulled me in. The flavor is so much more than smoky lapsang. It’s tingly and slightly spicy. The peppermint and ginger/cinnamon make the lapsang a little less overwhelming. It’s a delicious blend and would make a nice winter time tea!

This one was a sample someone sent me! It smells delicious. The taste is nice. It’s creamy, smooth, has a nice base, and has a lot of natural tasting vanilla.

Also received this one in a swap a loooooong time ago. I was craving a muffin this morning so I thought this could do the trick. I’ve been excited to try this rooibos but there just hasn’t been a good time to try it. So I’m doing it now! I added a touch of honey. The aroma of the tea is just delicious :) And the flavor is very muffin like. It even has that moist muffin-y feel. It’s sweet and even has a nice nutty flavor going on. It kind of mixes with the butter flavor. Oh. This is really a good rooibos. I’m kind of sad I don’t have more of it :(

I made this one then threw a couple ice cubes into it. AHH so good. All of the fruit flavors shine a little brighter and it was very refreshing :)

drank Apple Cider Spice by TeaSource

I received this one in a swap a while ago. I wanted something stronger this morning after all of the hustle and bustle this morning. The dry leaf smells awesome! Just like apple cider. The flavor of the tea is similar to apple cider with a touch of the black tea base. Very satisfying :)

So I won a contest on Adagio a while back and got the cold brew iced tea pack for this one. It’s pretty tasty cold but tastes nothing like the hot tea. The hot tea to me has more berry and hazelnut flavor over the cream. The cold brew has a more dominant cream flavor to it. It tastes like sweet cream with a touch of berry and an undernote of hazelnut. It’s still good and quite refreshing though :)

I received this one in my grab bag :3 It smells absolutely amazing. The flavor is pretty nice too. Both flavors can be picked out but I feel like the mango shines a bit brighter. The base of this tea is lovely :3 I like this one but next time it’s gonna be cold brewed! Whewf. I can’t handle this summer heat D:

I really like this one :) It’s tart, sweet, and has a kick of spice to it. The cranberry is kind of what makes it different from other spice teas. Good blend of flavors.

Sounds like Amy, to me :)

drank Seed Harvest by Handmade Tea

I honestly didn’t know if I’d like this tea because the aroma of the dry leaf really got to me. I hate the smell of cumin so I was super hesitant to try this tea. Steeped up it’s actually a really interesting tea. The smokey black tea is what pops out first, then a touch of spice, and after all that the anise and fennel. Surprisingly I really like this tea. The flavors blend well and it makes for a bold, unique cup.
