Had this last night after a scary incident of losing one of my cats (still a kitten really) for a couple hours. It looks like she slipped out the front door when I got home and I found her (after much searching) on the steps leading up the next floor (we rent a condo). She was curled up in a little ball and looked miserable. I felt horrible but I’m so glad she didn’t go far. She does have a microchip and a collar but still… Anyway so I needed a nice cup of tea to calm me down.

I really loved the flavor, nutty and a lovely bit of cinnamon (which I love in tea). I also love the color change, tea should be fun. :) I’m a big fan of sprinkles in flavored teas as well! I’d definitely love to have more of this on hand, it was enjoyable to drink.

Glad the kitty was found! It’s a nightmare scenario for me :(

I have a bit of this as part of the Spring Collection. It smells amazing, even with my stuffy nose. I forgot to set the timer so it steeped for at least 5 minutes. Not bitter at all though and still quite tasty. I think I get a hint of pomegranate in there but it is mostly mango. The juicy mango flavor is the most prominent, as opposed to black tea. I bet this would make a great iced tea. No sweetener needed either, I think the sugar on the mango pieces might help. Very yummy!

205 °F / 96 °C

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. :)
