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

drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas

This tea honestly smells like breakfast to me. Maple syrup, smoky bacon, and black tea :) I haven’t had this tea in a while so I added a pinch of salt to help the bacon. This is definitely a delicious cup! Maple and bacon are both present! Although I do wish there was a bit more bacon to it ;)

Thank you so much to Angel and Teavivre for sending me a generous sample of this tea. The dry leaf is a beautiful grass green. The aroma of the dry leaf is buttery and leafy. The flavor is rather different than other tie guan yin oolongs I’ve had. Usually I’m used to strong floral flavors but this has much deeper flavors. It’s woodsy, buttery, floral, sweet, and a touch of creaminess. I’m going to enjoy a few more steeps of this one :3

Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sweet, Vegetal, Wood

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 :]
