Backlogging. Made jugs of this to take to Orange Beach. Refreshing and light chilled. lifesaver since it saved me from the dreaded beach heat exhaustion.

Backlogging! I went out of town for 2 weeks and this was one of the Breakfast teas I took with me. this is a smooth and mellow tea. not astringent but not overwhelmed with milk. this is not smoky tea like Teas,Etc. ’s Bohea.

Wow! Lemon grass and mint – a perfect combination . The mint tempers the tanginess of the lemon and the lemongrass gives the mint a tang. Wonderful iced.

drank Jasmine Peach Bai Mudan by Samovar
328 tasting notes

What a pleasant and soft tea. Upon opening the tin, the peach flavor was overpowering. So I thought. hmm, is this going to taste like some icky, peachy Jolly Rancher? Suprisingly, when brewed, both the peach and jasmine flavors are subtle and “synergize” into something quite nice.

Backlogging.

Is this tea new?!? Samovar and their surprises.

Lori

I think it is new…..

drank Bohea by Teas Etc

Backlogging…

Like others have said before, this is sweet and SLIGHTLY smoky. The smoky flavor in this tea is not overpowering…. It is quite mild and pleasant . I think I am going to enjoy this one….

ashmanra

I didn’t know until a few months ago that I liked smoky! Now I want to try more smoky teas and perhaps even work my way up to being able to keep up with Doulton!

drank Organic Relaxation by Teas Etc

This blend is a bust! It tastes 100% chamomile . So why not just save some money and purchase chamomile? Oh well…. luckily , this was only a free sample. And obviously I am backlogging from this weekend…

Jillian

Better yet – why not save some money and GROW chamomile? ;)

Rabs

I had a wonderful sample of this one so I bought a larger bag. I don’t know what the heckie-pooh they did to this tea, but the bag I got was absolutely blech. I still had a little left in the sample bag and I sniffed it: it smelled like a different tea (much sweeter and fresher). I think that you’ve nailed it — they upped the chamomile with a few things sprinkled around it. Denisend had mentioned “dirty sock” and that’s what I get from it now :(

Lori

Now that is an idea Jillian! Rabs- some other reviewer mentioned the blend change…

Rabs

I had read that reviewer’s note but it seemed like he’d had the exact opposite reaction “what have they done — they’ve made it sweet?” So perhaps they got enough complaints and went back to the less sweet version because I got sweet in my sample and yuck in the bag.

drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas

Another winner! I was quite suprised how “creamy coconutty” this one tasted…With milk and sugar, this one was a dessert….

drank Butter Pecan Black Tea by 52teas
328 tasting notes

Yum! First couple of times I did not get the steeping right but on the third time, with a little bit of sugar and milk, it really did taste like butter pecan ….In fact, as the nuttiness is quite subtle (and so is butter pecan ice cream), I have been having this as my morning brew for the past couple of days…

I love this tea. As it is getting warmer (well really hotter) , a dense , heavy Mountain Malt does not appeal to me in the AM right now. This tea is a whisper of smoke but again I don’t want to wake up w a roaring barbecue during the summer. It has a sweetness in the aftertaste so this is a nice light breakfast tea in the summer months.

Lori

Just got an Ipad and need to learn how to adjust the tea ratings on it. This tea is no 38

Rabs

LOL! I was wondering ;) At least it’s a very good reason for the temporarily low rating :D

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Lori I know what you mean…I have the iPad too. You can’t drag as I am sure you figured out you have to tap beyond what you want and hope it lands on the number you want. It takes time to figure out and is annoying but you will get used to it.

Lori

Thanks fixed it.

ashmanra

I had the same problem when we got a new laptop!

AmazonV

Man i could not rate stuff using the ipad, so frustrating!

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
