Disclaimer: I don’t like green tea or caramel popcorn >.>

That all said, I enjoyed this tea. Not enough to restock, I think, but I’m glad I tried it. It is tasty, if not a little weak. In my experience re:steeping times, less is more, so I only steeped this for four minutes instead of the recommended 5-7, which might be why it’s weak, but most people think this is kind of weak, so who knows. I’m really enjoying the maple, I love maple. I managed not to screw up the green in this cup, yay!

Overall, a tasty tea, but not worth keeping on hand for me.

Another one bites the dust…yay!

Edit: The more of this I drank, the less I liked it. It just is not my cup of tea.

I found the same thing (liking it less the more I drank)! I liked it even less on a second cup. The tea definitely doesn’t stand up to the gimmick.

I was tempted on this, but not 100% convinced. I trust both Ladykittykat & Jessie’s judgments. Thanks for being the guinea pig. :)

Uniquity

Apparently it became part of the permanent collection already…And Goji Pop didn’t? : )

I didn’t expect to like it, and then I smelled it and thought I was wrong. Nope. I was right, this is not the tea for me.

Glad we could help, KiTT ;).

Uniquity, I have to say, after going through a tin of Goji Pop, I’m kinda over it. I can’t get past the hibiscus. I suspect it’s going to be like Pumpkin Chai, it will come back every Spring. Also, the impression I get of the “monthly” teas is they’re tests. If the tea sells well, it becomes part of the permanent collection. If it doesn’t, then it’s discontinued at the end of the month.

Maybe Goji Pop will come back like Glitter and Gold did?

I thought that Goji Pop was permanent. Haven’t tried this one yet but it will be in my order I am getting on Monday (assuming no postal strike).

I do love Pink Flamingo though. Wish it was permanent.

Uniquity

I’m still bummed that Mojito didn’t come back. I’d toss up quite a few teas for that one…I gotta stop getting sucked into trying the new ones, I usually don’t like them long term.

Cattibrie, Goji Pop was part of the spring line that, as I understand it, was discontinued as soon as the Summer line came out.

Uniquity, I’m with you on that one, most of the tried and true ones are much better than most of the seasonals, in my opinion.

Cattibrie

I just thought I saw on facebook that Goji Pop was going to be continued. Could be wrong. They have announced a few recently.

I sit corrected, apparently Goji is sticking around until the end of summer.

Indigobloom

I tried a sample of this in the store. It was ok, but too much like a flat pop than an actual tea! I don’t like my teas to be too gimmicky anyhow, and this one, well I think it defines that word!

Indigobloom

that said, it would be great to have for the kids

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
