drank Caramel Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

I have had this sitting on my kitchen table for 3 long days. Finally this morning I get a chance to enjoy it with a warm cinnamon roll. But you can buy it here:

I got this a few days ago along with a tin (it’s only $3.99 extra) and left it just sitting there… well I opened the package today and OH MY GOODNESS. It smells so, so good. My boyfriend brought home some cinnamon rolls this morning and I knew it was meant to be. When I first made it I used a bit too much matcha so I got a way too overly sweet flavor. At first I was like… there is no caramel here… But I added a little more water and now we’re up to speed. Delicious carmel goodness! I’ve noticed if you choose the “delicate” flavor choice the flavor lingers in the aftertaste and slightly behind the matcha. But the caramel is a little bit more bold. It shows up as the aftertaste still, but it’s stronger. It goes well with the matcha, it has a slight bitterness to it but it fits. MM this is the perfect combination of matcha and caramel. And it goes so perfectly with my cinnamon roll :D
If you like caramel anything this would be the perfect choice for you. It’s a little bit healthier (unless you’re pairing it with a cinnamon roll..) than those little caramel candies and it has tea in it! And again you can buy it here:

drank Pumpkin Spice by Adagio Teas

I have to say I don’t really like this on its own. So I tried mixing it with pecan black tea and it was wonderful! It really brings out the flavors and tastes like pumpkin pie :) goodbye to that weird bitter taste it had before!

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

A big thanks to TeaEqualsBliss :]
At first I was like…. no…. I don’t like pecans…. But then I was going through my little sample/swap drawer and thought ok, we’ll give this a try. And I’m happy I did :] It is not overly nutty but still has a sweetness to it. I like it :] I think I may try it blended with a bit of my Pumpkin Spice tea. Mmmm…. :]

Many thanks to TeaEqualsBliss!
So as I read the other reviews they said that they liked it better cold.. But it is such a chilly morning I think I’ll enjoy it hot :] This is a mellow tea. A strong black tea with hints of papaya and passion fruit here and there. A little bitterness at the end but it just adds to the experience. Mm :]

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss!! This is a delicious rooibos :) It’s sweet and mellow. You can definitely taste the current along with hints of the rooibos. The flavors work really well together. Thanks again TeaEqualsBliss!

Eh.. I love fruity teas.. but this one just does not like me. It’s ok.. it has a fruity taste but it is kind of weak to me. I can taste a bit of the green tea, which isn’t so bad. Overall it is a solid ok..

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss!! This is such a cute tea! It’s fuzzy! I think I liked the feel and look of it more then I liked drinking it haha I love it. It smells so pretty. It smells floral and grassy. The flavor is sweet with a hit of citrus and it finishes off with a melon taste. Mm I love white teas :) it is very smooth. Thank you again!!

Silver Needle is my second favorite white tea. When you just need pure, sweet, amazing, it’s the perfect drink.

KallieBoo!

Oo I agree! Another one of my favorites is white peony :)

White peony is my definite favorite. Love, love, love it. It’s the best ever.

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss! I didn’t like this when I brewed it hot then iced it.. So I just went with cold brewing it and it’s awesome. Light and ever so slightly watermelony!

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 :]
