Iced, this is yummy and cinnamon-y and good, but too hibby and still kinda bitter like orange peel. This was a sipdown, though, so it’s a nonissue for me.

I love the sparkly cinnamon vanilla goodness of this tea, I think i need to move it out of sipdowns. This is one I definitely need to keep in stock.

This is one that I really don’t understand the appeal of. Perhaps I need to try again. Am I doing something wrong?

It’s one of those that when it’s right, it’s amazingly yummy, but when it’s wrong, it’s horrible. For me, I love the cinnamon hit. I brewed it at boiling for two minutes using one “perfect” teaspoon. I also drink all of my “hot” teas lukewarm >.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm. Apparently, I need to play with it a bit more. Not a big cinnamon fan, so there’s that.

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you for your suggestions.

Daddyselephant

Anytime. This tea can be hit and miss and if you’re not into cinnamon, it may be a consistent miss, sadly.

The old blend or newer one??

Daddyselephant

new, probably, but idk.

Michelle

If it had gold stars – its new. Gold balls is the older one. Which I find tasted so much better!

I have been craving this tea for days, but always think of it later on in the day and I didn’t want the energy burst. It’s hard enough to get to sleep right now due to our lack of a bed >.

Morning cuppa and it’s just alright. I had this iced a few days ago and it didn’t taste good, but I thought it was just because my iced tea mugs needed a good clean. However, now that I’ve had it hot, the issue is with the tea, sadly. It’s just eh. Only a little bit of this left and I’ll be glad to see it go.

Yesterday my wife and I made butter using Tea Monkey’s Vanilla Chai cold brewed in whipping cream. I was making a tomato soup that called for cream, so we made butter to use up some of the extra cream. The butter is delicious and surprisingly strong in the chai flavor area! But the process of making butter also creates buttermilk and I saved it to splash into this to amp up the chai flavor and it is delicious. Not gonna change the rating because I don’t know how much is the milk and how much is the tea.

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have five! live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put stevia in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
