Yummy!
I picked this up as a sample a while ago and haven’t written a note about it yet. I think this would be so delicious iced! But hot.. Delicious! To me it tastes like a tamed red heart candy. Not really spicy, but it somehow has a berry flavouring or deep rich berry taste. Like a swedish berry? I dont know but it is very random. Maybe it’s due to the sugar in the mix. Who knows.
It also reminds me of Christmas a lot. With the clove/orange flavours. It’s beautiful to watch as well.. a fun tea to sip and relax with. I’m enjoying this thoroughly.. a nice change from unflavoured.

Yum, I love this one. I can’t imagine it cold though, for whatever reason. Perhaps cinnamon = hot to me. Just like I can’t imagine most chais cold (although the Peach Fuzz Chai I tried cold was pretty good).

It was really great! I kept sniffing the bag randomly trying to find the perfect time to drink it (sometimes cinnamon teas just don’t appeal to me unless their in a chai). When I was sipping it.. it got a little cold and was very yummy.

Oh, I totally believe it was great cooled down! That’s how I drink many teas! Icing it just sounds wrong to me though :P

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
