This smells horrible, BUT it tastes okay and knocked me out last night so it did it’s job. Definitely wouldn’t drink this just to enjoy it. I’ll finish up the box but then I’m off to find a more tasty tea with valerian.

Too tired for a long review – but this was a free sample so I’ll do my best.

Lovely berry flavor but the smell throws me off a bit. The dry leaf (are they still leaves?) has a very medicinal smell. It doesn’t translate as much into the liquor but still slightly off-putting. In any case, not bad but I have other rooibos blends that I enjoy more.

My Try Me sample is all gone. :( Definitely putting this on the to buy list along with some more Smokey Mountain sTEAp and probably a few others.

I still can’t seem to figure out how to describe this but it’s certainly smooth and very delicious.

Yum! Lovely blend of caramel and almond and a hint of spice from the chai. However, not too spicy because I’m such a wuss. Added a bit of sugar and it made it perfect.

I’m still aliiiiive. I’ve just been swamped with work, vet tech school applications, etc.
Anywho, put in a recent order from Adagio with a gift certificate I got during Christmas and this was one of teas I ordered.

This smells freaking fantastics. I would inhale this all day long if I could. It reminds me a lot of Crunch Berries. Yum. The taste is lovely too, light and a bit fruity. The gingerbread kind of mellows everything out. I could easy drink pots of this. Still fiddling with temp/times but I’m pretty satisfied with my first attempt.

For a moment I had a thought that this was a cannibalistic tea. Human flavored. Actual tea sounds tasty. :)

I don’t know, if people tasted like this than maybe…

Haha Fortunately, most humans smell rather unappetizing. Otherwise, we’d be living in a scary place. :)

Yum yum. I’ve ben absent from Steepster because work has been so so crazy. Plus I’m finally getting over the flu/whatever I had and can taste again. No point in drinking all my lovely tea and not being able to taste anything!

I do love this tea, I was actually expecting it to be a darker oolong when I first got it but I like the orange and creaminess with the lighter oolong.
