Oh yes. This tea is… perfect. I had this paired with a piece of chocolate cake and I think I’ve had enough chocolate to last me at least two days. The chocolate in this cup is so creamy and spot on. The raspberry adds a tart note to the cup. It’s… just… perfect.. Mmmmm :)

Finished this one off today! I’m happy I had a cup of tea by me today. I run my own etsy shop and a lady has been messaging me about a custom order. Turns out she’s just trying to figure out how I make it so she doesn’t have to actually buy it >:( That makes me grumpy because I make my own recipes for my own products and work really hard at it too :(
Anyways.. this tea is enjoyable. It has a sweet flavor that reminds me of peaches or apricots. There is a nice floral note and a touch of melon. Mmm :3

It’s gone :( I love this tea! The flavor is fantastic. Banana, cheesecake, and crust all present. I will miss this tea so much!

This is one I always want to add cream and sugar to but I know I don’t really like cream or sugar in my tea :/ I enjoyed this cup. Nice black base with flavors that remind me of caramel and toffee. They blend well.

I found this in my sample drawer and decided to drink the rest of it. It’s a nice refreshing cup. It’s mainly minty but you can definitely taste the other ingredients. I really enjoyed this cup :3

I’m pretty happy it’s a short day at work today. This tea is ok. The only thing I’m getting is roasted mate with a sweetness to it. Some other reviews suggested steeping this like a green. I might try that and leave the rating black for now.

Added bit of honey to this and the fruity flavors shine a bit brighter. There is a base of smoke which is interesting with the fruit. The lemon is definitely there but the blueberry just adds a juicy/sweetness touch to it. It’s an ok blend. I’ll have to try it iced or cold brewed!

Decided to brew this one up today! I went .30 longer than I usually would and it turned to the bitter side…. Still has some flavor just a slightly bitter aftertaste that gives it a malty-ness. The coconut is in the background. As it cools a slight sweetness comes out.

Using my gourd this morning! I love it :) the first few gourd-fulls are pretty strong but this is actually quite different than the regular yerba mate. It has a mellow flavor but has so much going on. It starts off kind of grassy but has almost a minty/pine flavor too. The finish is sweet with super light citrus notes. I almost like this better than the regular yerba mate. I want to go camping and take this and my gourd!

Flavors: Citrus, Grass, Mint, Pine

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
