Having this one a lot lately. Kind of a mellow, friendly blend of flavors.

drank Strawberry Paraiso by Teavana

The strawberry flavor is the strongest I’ve ever encountered with this tea. I didn’t care for this one the first couple of times I made it, but it has grown on me. A dash tends to blend well with other teas as well.

Keep trying this one but it just doesn’t seem to be growing on me. I’ve tried steeping with a few other teas with improves it somewhat. I can’t even put my finger on why I’m not liking this.

Got in the habit of having this most mornings. Went back to the store to get more, but they said they have retired both of these. So I bought a couple new ones to try, but I’ll miss this one. It’s probably good to break out of the habit though.

Was really excited to try 52teas for the first time. I love toffee, so I bought this tea right away when I saw it on their website. I thought the smell was chocolatey but I didn’t really get a Heath Bar smell. When I steeped I didn’t get any chocolate or toffee taste. And, am I crazy? If someone had just given me this cup of tea I would have sworn it was flavored to taste like hot chocolate. Hmm…will try again in a few days. Will hold off rating for now…

I had 5 cups of this Tuesday morning while working from home, and now I’m having more. I would describe this blend as easy or mindless. There’s not a lot of depth to it but it’s a lot of fun to drink.

Definitely can pick up on the peach notes. The chestnut and honey notes are more subtle. A nice light tea.

I was on vacation last week, and I chose to mostly take a vacation from the internet as well. So I didn’t get around to logging much, but I did have this most mornings. A nice way to start the day except the morning I made it iced instead of hot. Unless my taste buds are just weird, this tea just doesn’t work as an iced a.m. beverage.

drank Apricot Essence by Davidson's

Picked this up tonight. Had never tried it and it was cheap. The scent of apricot was incredibly strong, but much lighter when tasted. I think I’ll try an even shorter steep time next time. A good alternative to Lipton.

drank China Pacific Rose by Bartleby's

From one of the Bartleby’s own blends. The cafe is next door to the (somewhat) famous Mystic Pizza. Bartleby’s should be the one with recognition. But many people do tend to like eating cooked cheese more than drinking dried leaves.

Profile

Bio

Health coach and lover of tea.

I prefer cold tea to hot tea. But living in New England I end up drinking more hot than cold.

I go through periods when I only want my tea neat. I never add sugar or milk to tea.

I love lemon in hot and cold teas. And I sometimes experiment with other fresh fruit additions.

I tend toward subtle fruity blends of black, green, oolong, and rooibos teas but I’m trying to expand my tea palate a bit. I hope being part of this website will help.

Other websites I love for my non-tea related hobbies: AllConsuming, Goodreads, and Gowalla.

I am interested in tea swapping. I have tea by Gypsy Tea (someone else might like more) and Yogi Tea (not for me but someone else might really like) that I feel a need to find a new home for. Also anything in my cupboard I’m willing to swap. I love trying new teas!

Gypsy: Peach Blossom, King Chai, Grand Green
Yogi: Green Tea Goji Berry, Mayan Cocoa Spice, Mexican Sweet Chili, Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut

My ratings (because I need some way to conceptualize this vast system) are:

01-39 Unfollow.
40-49 Will never speak to again.
50-59 Would consider calling again.
60-69 Can hangout in my cupboard until they find a place to stay.
70-89 We can be roommates.
90-94 Here’s the key to my cupboard.
95-100 How can a tea be this perfect and special? We must be soulmates.
