Creamy vanilla taste, with a nice bold black tasting base. This was a nice way to wake up this morning. It made the kitchen smell wonderful too!

Received this as a free sample in my recently LARGE purchase from 52Teas. Always love to try new samples and this one was a new one for me. I am not really in love with this one though. It doesn’t rock my socks off like some other 52Teas blends. But that is ok. Glad I got to try it. I would drink it again but don’t think I would order this one for myself.
Thankful this tea is back in my life! I was glad when Frank said he would reblend it if I purchased a pound. Well Happy Valentine’s Day to me! (LOL) I ordered the pound and it arrived yesterday! WOW this was the first time I ever got a pound of tea at one tea (at least of one particular kind- That’s a lot of tea!!! I am in tea heaven! Thanks again 52TEAS!!!!!!! You are wonderful!!!! I enjoyed a cup of this at work this am!
For those interested in knowing, my mom LOVES this tea! She texted me while I was at work just to let me know how much she liked it and she posted a message of her love for it on my facebook wall! Think she likes it :)
Re steep of yesterday’s leaves just as perfect as yesterday’s cup! Love this! For anyone interested it will be back in stock according to Den’s teas in about two weeks!
I LOVE THIS!!!! I couldn’t wait to try the pineapple sencha after trying the apple sencha earlier this afternoon. I ordered the apple for my mom and the pineapple for me. This is so so good! I did use the recommended short steep time of 30sec. and boiling water and the pineapple taste is simply amazing! I think this would be great iced but I am enjoying this hot. It kind of gives me the feeling of summer but with warmth during these cold cold days here in Pennsylvania. This one will be on the reorder list for sure! I think next time I am going to order the orange sencha as well!
Thanks to Kristin for this sample! I actually sent her some Talbott tea Luscious Lemon Meringue and she sent me this one. I have to agree with her. These teas taste almost identical! So if you miss special teas Lemon chiffon try Talbott Teas Luscious Lemon Meringue
Cup at work today….so nice to take a moment to enjoy some good tea during a crazy work day!
I placed my first Den’s Tea order and it came really quickly! I ordered the $3 sampler for novices and am really looking forward to broadening my horizons and trying them! My ultimate is to one day try matcha! Have been a little timid and nervous for some reason about Matcha. I figured a great place to start would be Den’s tea sampler to try some Japanese greens!
I actually ordered the apple sencha and pineapple sencha in addition to the sampler pack. The apple sencha specifically for my mom but I took some out of the pack to try. It is great…really taste quality in this. The apple is awesome. Now I can’t wait to break in the pineapple sencha! Really like this, too bad that pouch went home with my Momma! Can’t wait to see what she thinks of it!!
I took some of this into work today and after lunch I decided to make a cup. Well I had to step out of my office for something and when I came back in my office smelled DELICIOUS!!!!! (This would make a great scent for one of those plug in things!!!) Yummy
Thanks to Chi of Tea for the sample offer! This is the first of their teas I am trying. Smell from sample pouch=Orange. It is a pleasant orange! This has a hint of ginger taste but orange is the dominant flavor. Very nice! I am hoping the ginger and ginger root in this will help settle an upset stomach from eating a McDonalds Quarter pound cheeseburger last night. That would be great! This is a tea I could definitely see reordering!
Ok this time I steeped for appropriate time and still am getting a “weird” combo…I think it is the berry herbal and black thing that is not meshing well for me. Too berry like medicinal even at the correct steep time. This I must say is the first Harney’s tea I was not super impressed with. I can finish the cup but not something I would reach for again.
Superb! This is my first tea by American Tea Room and I am thankful to Kristin for the swap! I really like this…. chocolate!!!!! chocolate!!!!!! And no caffiene such a plus. I am funny with my rooibos tisanes. I just started venturing out and buying some but this is one that I do not taste any rooibos at all. I am glad! So even if you don’t normally drink rooibos don’t let that inhibit you from trying this tea! Thanks again to Kristin!!
Thanks to Kristin for sending me a generous samples with this in it! I am not going to rate this one yet because I accidently let it steep for like 20 minutes. Oops got caught up in a phone conversation. It was drinkable but very very berry almost medicinal tasting. I am going to give it another shot when I pay closer attention to the steep time and will repost another review/rating then! Thanks again Kristin for swapping!
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!! I have my chinese new year eggs simmering in Cha Yen Thai tea!! Just posted a pic on Teavana’s facebook wall. If you can like my photo before 5pm today!!!!! I can’t wait to see how the eggs turn out…I am going to let them simmer for a while.
Thanks Meghann for this sample to try!!! I am not sure what I am tasting it seems as if every sip I get a different fruity flavor. It is good! So glad I got to try it. I don’t think it would be an everyday kind of tea for me… that of course is the one pound of chocolate peanut butter cup that Frank is blending for me :) But this was an enjoyable fruity green sample!
You know how sometimes you hear the question if you could take one thing with you on a deserted island what would it be? Well the Breville one touch would be my answer.
Although I was a little apprehensive about the price I am so glad we made the purchase! I use it multiple times during the day and absolutely love setting the autostart feature to have tea ready for me in the morning!!!
Enjoying a comforting cup of this tonight. I am bracing myself for the snow/ice storm that is heading our way tonight. As my taste for tea as grown I have been using less and less additives but I treated myself tonight and added a touch of rock sugar to this. A nice sweet treat!!! Thankful my parents were so kind and ordered another tin of this for me. So nice that even at almost 30 years old my parents still spoil me!
Had a bag of this at my in laws this afternoon. (I bought a box of teabags for work and tucked of few in my purse for when we are out.) I realized when drinking this today although the teabags are good for convenience the loose leaf tastes even better!!!
My husband and I enjoyed an afternoon at the mall and he actually let me walk into Teavana!!! (Usually ends up with me spending way too much money and not necessarily on tea but accessories… cast iron teapot, Breville, teamakers, spoons you get the idea!) This is why my husband usually wants to chaperone me if I am going to the mall LOL!! But he was in a good mood and actually went into the teavana with me…(probably just to keep a close eye on my wallet!) But I got a $5 cup of “crack” if you will. That is what I think Teavana puts in this blend ;) It is so good when they make it… and there has to be some kind of drug in it for me to spend $5 on a cup of tea!!!! It was heavenly though!
(And when my husband wasn’t paying attention I got 2 oz of Jasmine green pearls and 2 oz of strawberry lemonade. I love blending the two! :) All in all we had a great mall trip!!!
Enjoying this cup. I am breaking my rule though of no caffiene after 4pm…hopefully I will sleep tonight! I am so tired though, I needed a little pick me up. I am actually liking this one better than the first time I had it. Bumping up the rating.
I really like this one! I just ordered a sample of it in my last Harney order but the next one I am going to order a tin of it!! Very nice black tea with an apple taste with a touch of cinnamon. The cinnamon is not real strong but you can taste it. Well so far I have not had a Harney tea that I didn’t enjoy!
Decided to mix it up today and make a cup of green tea. This one is nice, smooth peachy tasting green. I actually bought a pouch of this for my mom at Christmas time to go in a tea tin my girls painted for her. She loves this one too!
SNOW DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Home with the kiddos and did round one of putting the snowsuits on and heading out. fun fun! Now enjoying this cup of tea to warm up! Love this stuff!
