I think I only have about two cups left in the sample of this. It’s still pretty good. I like the pineapple and that’s what I think of when I have a cup of this. I’m pretty certain I won’t order this in larger quantities, but it’s been a good one for this phase of life.

Inspired by the iced tea chatter over here, I made a liter of this and chilled it. It’s pretty good. It actually reminds me of iced Constant Comment… which I think is mostly due to the cloves. I’m certain I wouldn’t want this to be a summer staple, but it’s nice tea to drink iced.

I had this again, this morning. It’s such a good drink, though so unlike a real tea. I hadn’t really thought about making it at home until I saw it listed here with a picture someone clearly took at their place…. now I’m thinking I need to get some to whip it up at home (and save a LOT on the total cost of the drink)!

Inspired by the “where is everyone” discussion post, I made a glass of this iced. It’s really good that way! I sweetened it, southern style, so it reminded me a bit of strawberry candy. I also had never really thought of making iced tea by the glass (we do it by the pitcher in my house), so I’m glad the post made me consider that. Now I’ll try a bunch of iced teas in the near future!!

I make it by the glass cuz I can’t stick w/ one flavor for too long lol.

I, too, got this one from the TTB. And I’m so glad I did! I don’t know much about McNulty, but I’m a fan of caramel, so I took a sample’s worth. It’s another tea that is more about the tea than the flavoring; just the way I like it! I had it with waffles for breakfast this morning, but I think it would have been even better on its own. I recommend it!

Another from the Travelling Tea Box! I think I prepared this one with water that was a bit too hot, but that’s okay. It was still what you’d expect from an oolong. I did a 30 second rinse and then a 3 minute steep.

Steep 1: 3 minutes. Much smoother, and a bit of the vanilla and floral notes I was hoping for from the description!

whoops! That last one was Steep 2.

Steep 3: 3 minutes. This tea continues to be smooth, and better than I expected, really. What a fun surprise on a cloudy afternoon!

Steep4: 3 minutes. And smoother. I think I’m picking up the vanilla still. It’s not vegetal or floral at all at this point.

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
