Now that I’m out of True Blueberry, this isn’t so bad.

One of 3 samples in my David’s Tea order! Hubbsy is drinking it now. I nerded out and did proper water temp, measured with a spoon and timed it too. Nerd-sy. Amber colored, and very lavender-y. He says: “nice blend of several different flavors, pleasant aftertaste.” Even though initially saying he would buy it, when I told him this cost 32.5¢ per cup and his favorite blueberry cost less at 17.5¢ he said he would rather have the blueberry. I personally don’t like the taste, so even though I did sip it, I’m not interested in it at all too lavendar-y.

Ran out of C.S. True Blueberry and this isn’t a bad replacement. Wish my Davids Tea would get here!

I’ve been enjoying this nightly for a while now while I wait for my Davids Tea order to come in. Its probably my favorite grocery store herbal – not that I’ve tried a lot. And I’m drinking it without sugar! See how I can be a grown up! pats myself on the head If Davids Tea doesn’t pan out, I will buy this one again.

I’ve been trying herbal teas without sugar. So new for me. Can’t not have milk though. They all are tasting watered down though. May have to brew longer and maybe less milk. But I love milk in my tea. :(

I bypassed Tetley Orange Pekoe today. I recoiled and became a snob overnight. I’m sure it will only get worse as the days go on.

Malty, and as good as regular caf, even though my mom says decaf is awful. She isn’t making it right.

This is my husbands tea. I’m usually not a fan of the smell. But I’m going in… I’m a little worried though because I take my tea with milk. Although at the same time, I believe that many people have milk in their Earl, so we will see. Going in!

Okay, so not as bad as I thought. It has a pleasant smell. But its kind of empty on taste, compared to English Breakfast. I guess I’m missing that malty-ness. With a big slurp I get the lemon, and I’m just not a fan of the floral-y Bergamot.

If I was handed this tea, I’d drink it fine, but I would be wishing it was a different tea.

I go through periods of being tea crazy and then coffee crazy. Right now, I’m trying to expand my tea horizons, as really only cream or creamer makes coffee okay for me. So bring on the tea leaves!
