drank Maple Sugar by Tea Guys

Usually I have this in the morning and I love it. It’s not overly sweet and I haven’t really understood why so many people describe it that way.

But this morning I could barely finish my little cup. Perhaps the maple chunks are heavy and now that I’m getting more than half way through the canister I’m steeping more into my tea. D’oh, gravity!

Received a generous portion of this from Mel. Love it. It’s nice and light and earthy. Great mellow tea for the evening.

Resteeped the leaves and added a pinch of rooibos key lime. The citrus flavors danced!

Tastes exactly like Kool-Aid.

Received this from Mel. I was really excited about this being Chocolate and Puerh. Then I read the description on the tea bag pouch that read, “velvety and vanilla.” So I got a bit worried. What happened to chocolate? Then I read the ingredients on the back of the tea bag pouch with more ingredients like nutmeg and cinnamon. Now it’s a chai? Darn.
I thought this was ok. Not being a fan of chai I could still drink it. The flavors seemed to mellow as I drank it even. But I thought the chocolate was the most distant flavor of the bunch. Not at all what I expected. But ok.

Steeped three parts rooibos key lime with one part utopian jewel oolong. I liked this blend. Really smooth and all the tropical flavors compliment each other. I like the key lime on its own but the oolong seems to lack something so I’ll probably use it up faster this way.

Decent cup of tea. Everything I’ve tried from this company seems like it was created in a lab to get the best possible balance of flavors that the broadest range of people will appreciate. Not necessarily a bad thing, but none of the ones I’ve tried really stand out as something I’d want to have all the time.

Usually steep this one for 3 minutes. Left it in a bit longer accidentally and it seems to get a bit bitter.

Was loving this last night. Still love it, but now I’m distracted by the jasmine notes.

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.
