193 Tasting Notes

I love gadgets and bought a MR. Coffee iced tea maker at walmart for $16 that you can use loose tea with. I decided to use some off this to make some iced. Some may think this tea iced wouldn’t taste good but it was Yummy!

Kristin

Oh cool. I’ve been wondering if one of those machines would work well with good loose teas. Please post if you use if for other teas! I want to know what works in it. :)

gmathis

We have one and make big pitchers of inexpensive Chinese oolong in the summer. You may already know this tip, but do let the brewed pitchers cool on their own before putting in the fridge so the tea doesn’t cloud up.

Do you put a filter at all to cover the hole, when using loose leaf?

gmathis

Yes, we just use cheapie coffee filters.

I just don’t know how Frank does it but he is my tea blending idol!! Take a look at the picture on the label of this tea pouch-picture the buttermilk pancakes dolloped with butter then drizzled with maple syrup. That is exactly what this tastes like! I enjoyed this for breakfast so much that I went on the website this am to see if I could snag another pouch but it was sold out :( This is super yummy!

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea
193 tasting notes

Had a VERY emotional and difficult day today at the office….wondering today why I decided to take the business manager position on a day like today! After having issues with an employee, decided to make a cup of pineapple sencha to take me away from all the stress of the day. It helped alot! Praying tomorrow is a lower stress day!!!

QuiltGuppy

Your raves about pineapple sencha convinced me that I needed some, too. I ordered two bags! :)

Jessie

You do need some! I see why Kristen used this as a de-stresser; it makes me so happy. Even just sniffing the bag does it for me.

Cofftea

Yay for happy tea! Hopefully today is better.

Kristen

QuiltGuppy-anxious to see your reviews! I LOVE this stuff-first I ordered the pouch but my last order I got a POUND!!! And it resteeps nicely!

Enjoyed a wonderful cup of this while visiting with friends last evening. It was nice to be able to drink a great cup of tea and have nice conversation with friends while the kids played. This tea is a DEFINITE in my cupboard and now also my friends cupboard!!

ashmanra

Did you have the loose leaf? It seems sweeter than the bags I am told.

Kristen

No I haven’t bought the pound yet but I think I will purchase it next! My tin of sachets is almost finished! I am anxious to compare the two!

ashmanra

I have never had the bags, but I bought the pound and loved it. I have heard that it helps to jumble up the leaves so the goodies get spread around as they tend to settle a little. I know mine has lovely vanilla bean specks in the last cup from each pot that are so yummy.

What an April Fool’s Day!!! I woke up on April 1st in Eastern Pennsylvania to snow….crazy weather! I NEED spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway I had this perfect cup of cinnamon spice tea to wake me up.

JacquelineM

I woke up to the same joke from Mother Nature! Poor flowers and seeds!

gmathis

We had rain all day yesterday in Missouri interspersed with flakes the size of quarters.

DecemberMint

We still have more than enough snow on the ground here. Fortunately the weather is beginning to cooperate after not seeing the sun for 2 weeks :) (I think we stole your good weather!)

The tea sounds delicious! I love cinnamon-spiced teas <3

I used Raleys ORANGE SPICE Black Tea To Chase Away The PA SNOW Today
Seems Like the ORANGE and CINNAMON Does it.

Resteep from yesterday- This resteeps nicely! Lovely cup of pineapple and coconut for breakfast! Celebrating my husbands birthday today-we are heading out to lunch for seafood. Yippee! We are going to have a grownup lunch without the kids, but we will probably end up talking about them the whole time. :)

First I want to thank KeenTeaThyme for sending this for me to sample. She added two other goodies that I am anxious to sample but since I am a chocolate addict I decided on this one first. Next let me say I LOVE Joy’s Teaspoon!
The tea smelled like chocolate and made the kitchen smell lovely but the flavor was not what I was expecting. This was not my favorite chocolate tea…something seemed off with it to me. I can’t place it but I am glad I got to try it.

KeenTeaThyme

Guess you had a similar response like I did… now I don’t feel so bad. Maybe I’ll try to tweak it. I’m still a huge fan of that tin! I am currently storing some advil in the lavender one I had and makes the pills smell nice… great. now I sound like a drug addict! ;)

Wow I placed my order for this I think Tues night or Wed and I already have it and am drinking a cup. That is the fasted I have ever received Frank’s delicious blends!
This tea is AMAZING!!! I personally like the green tea base better with this than the honeybush. I have another favorite pineapple green tea but this one is rivaling that one because this has yummy pineapple and coconut with a super good green tea base. Only sad part is I wish I ordered more than the one pouch! Frank you are awesome with your tea blends. Now if you could only do a Smore’s tea with chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker flavor…. but one request no lapsang in it! Maybe a honeybush base! Please Please Please! ;)

Kristen

or a black tea base but no lapsang.

LiberTEAS

Kristen: He already made a Pina Colada Honeybush. :)

Caitlin

I agree this tea is awesome!

Kristen

@ Liberteas I know I have tried the honeybush and like this one better! I was asking him for a Smores tea with a honeybush or black base! That would be yummy!

Made a pot of this yesterday afternoon when my parents came over to visit. We were looking through my stash deciding what to make and I said to my mom to smell this and she said “OH make that one!” :) My mom loved it! My dad drank some but really doesn’t care for fruity blends but said it was ok. But my mom goes to me again later… that it was really good. She really enjoyed it! I keep pesting her to get on steepster but so far she has not. :(

Always been a tea drinker but just recently experienced loose leaf teas. LOVE LOVE LOVE actually trying new teas and it has become a bit of an obsession :) I like all types of tea, but I am not a fan of rooibos.
I am mommy to two little princesses who are also starting to love tea….(3 year old and 1 year old-thus my need for caffeine! although they get the non or very low caffeinated teas) And my husband will kill me soon if he keeps getting to the UPS boxes and mail before I do LOL I will have to start shipping it to my work!
