Thanks to Momo! I received this in out Christmas swap. The smell of the dry leaves is just lovely. It kind of reminds me of Green Goddess from Tea Grotto with the hints of fruit. The flavor is just as lovely. The peach is very light but it works well with the sencha and jasmine. It’s very light and crisp with soft fruity, sweet notes. Thanks again Amanda!

Well guess what… I made this in my brand new BREVILLE :D yay Christmas. And even better I got this as a lovely sample with my order and it seemed appropriate to drink it today.
The flavor is very tart with hibiscus. I can also catch hints of ginger, cloves, and cranberries. I think the hibiscus is a bit strong D: but I still enjoyed it :)
I hope all of my steepster buddies had a good holiday!

This tea has always caught my eye so I was happy when I saw it at the store :] Well I decided I’d give it a go and now I’m on my second cup! It has a wonderful baked taste to it. It almost tastes like cookie dough and the aroma is amazing. The flavor could be a bit stronger, but maybe I will just try two tea bags. I will have to stock up on this!

I didn’t read the description of this tea very well when I ordered it.. But that’s ok because I’m up for trying something a bit strange :] Well… At least lychee and ginger sound weird to me…
The aroma is floral and a bit spicy. The flavor is odd.. It almost tastes over-steeped, but I can still pick spicy notes of ginger and the floral notes as well. Still enjoyable but maybe next time I make this I’ll shave off a few seconds.

So I was expecting BAM STRONG LAVENDER FLAVOR EVERYWHERE. But instead I got a lovely, relaxing, floral flavor. After reading reviews I thought this one would be too much, but it’s very soft and sweet. I’m slightly disappointed that the liquid in my cup is gray/blue and not a purple. But I feel this is the perfect tea to drink before bed. I’ll be sleeping good tonight!

I can’t believe that there are no tasting notes for this tea! I’ve been wanting to try this one for a good while now so I was happy when I saw the sale.
I love the sliced cranberries with the green leaves and lemongrass. This tea is not only beautiful, it’s delicious! It has the perfect tartness from the cranberries and a nice lemony flavor going on. It’s a very light tasting herbal. Probably one of my new favorites!

I really wasn’t sure what to expect with this tea but when I opened my cute little sample bag it exploded with juicy aromas. The flavor is light and fruity with a malty black tea base. Overall I liked it but I wasn’t impressed with it.

This tea was just the right thing to put me in a more optimistic mood today. It’s so pretty to just look at and the flavor is starting to grow on me..

I received this in a swap I did with someone and it got mixed in with all my other samples so I’m not sure who I got it from but thank you!!!
This is a lovely green tea :] The green tea base is soft and slightly sweet with hints of a buttery flavor. The orange and citrus flavors are very light and complimenting. It’s a very natural orange flavor, which is nice :]
Thanks again!
