Had a nice pot of this in memory of little Sox. The aroma is very sweet and the flavor is relaxing. I love the vanilla almond flavor to this.

drank Vanilla Black by Harney & Sons

Finished off my sample of this! Of course I had it with my missed shortbread cookies :] What a delicious snack.
When I first opened the bag it smelled like vanilla bean cup cakes. The flavor is very light but blends well with the malty black tea base. Very simple. Not a whole lot to say.

drank Rose Earl Grey by Red Leaf Tea

Thank you Alphakitty! I decided this would be a nice tea to go with lunch. I have never had a rose earl grey but it’s delicious! I love anything with rose in it. It’s such a nice flavor. I’m always hesitant on earl grey teas because I find them overpowering for some reason, but this one is very well balanced. The rose and bergamot blend well together. I really enjoyed this! Thank you again!!

Thank you Alphakitty! This tea smells wonderful! It has a nice citrusy, berry aroma to it. The flavor is pretty great. It has notes of orange, lemon, strawberry, currant, and a little bit of a floral flavor. The black tea base is present with malty/sweet notes. It almost reminds me of berry lemonade. But better. Because it’s tea :]
Thanks again!!

Thanks ToiToi!! This one smells so strongly of cinnamon. I feel like this tea is strong in cinnamon and clove flavors. There is a bit of a citrusy flavor to it as well. Thanks again!

Thanks for this sample ToiToi! This is a very mellow tea. It has a nutty taste to it but I can still catch the black tea base. Very nice :] Thanks again!

Thanks Alphakitty! I was excited to try this tea becuase papaya and ginger sound amazing together. First taste this tea reminded me of bubblegum O.o I can catch the ginger and some fruity notes. I actually really like this tea :]

Thanks Alphakitty! The aroma of this is so sweet! There is a nice peach flavor with a few floral notes. I’m always happy when I can taste the tea base under the flavors. The green tea has a bit of a buttery-slash-vegetal flavors going on. This was perfect to start my morning with! Thank you again!

The flavor of this is magical. I love that I can taste both flavors equally. The sweetness of the lavender compliments the apple/floral of the chamomile. It’s perfect. And now I’m off to sleep! Sweet dreams Steepster!!

So I’m pretty sure this is the tea that was sent to me..
ANYWAYS thank you Alphakitty! This tea is actually pretty unique. It’s also very pretty. I have never tasted another one like it. It’s sweet but still has something I can’t put my finger on. The green tea base is nice and I feel like it adds a bit of vegetal sweetness to it. I can catch hints of the orange and lemon flavors. I’m not sure what juniper berries taste like but I’m sure they’re adding to the sweetness :] I reeaallly enjoyed this tea. Thanks again!

Alphakitty

Yup, this is the one! It’s a really interesting blend, the juniper berries just add something extra.

KallieBoo!

I loved that it had juniper berries in it. I’ve never tried them but it definitely made this tea.

Alphakitty

Yeah, it’s not common in teas at all. I think I might order some for blending!

KallieBoo!

That sounds like a good idea! If you blend something delicious I’ll be more than happy to test it :)

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 :]
