Just bought a whole tin of this on impulse from Whole Foods’ valentine display. I opened up the tin and let the scent waft about my car on the ride home. I was genuinely worried after reading others’ tasting notes that this might turn into a cognitive dissonance thing (hello psych degree) where I’d convince myself I like it just to avoid buyer’s remorse. But I honestly do love this. . . with TONS of sugar. Delicious candy in a cup!

The first of this sampler pack that I genuinely enjoy. I accidentally let this steep for 7 minutes instead of the recommended 3-5 and it is not at all bitter. Very light, in fact. I was skeptical of the inclusion of Stevia because it seems that sweetener is a personal preference…however I think it works. Without the sweetener this might actually taste bland.

Not sure why I said it tasted like white last time. This is definitely green and has an earthy flavor. Nice, but basic. This is the last of my stash and I doubt I’ll be replacing it.

Found glazed donuts waiting for everyone at work today. Hooray free donuts! I thought this would be a good time to try this vanilla spice tea sample I picked up at a cute little shop in Fredricksburg (cute B&B type small TX town). The tea bag smelled heavenly next to the warm donut and it works pretty well in liquid form too. I even gave it a little dunk, as I hear people do such things with donuts and coffee. (note do not dunk donuts in tea unless you enjoy watery donuts).

HAH! Never enjoyed dunking donuts in my coffee, but that’s funny.

For once, a fruit tea that is not overwhelmed by hibiscus. I honestly like this. “Soft” is a good descriptor for the blackberry flavor. Its not biting me with berry flavor, but its there. This was better without sweetener. After adding agave nectar, it took on a fake candle wax kind of flavor.
