A very nice tea for when I want something light and fruity. I really like to mix this with things. I put in much more tea than recommended, since I want a stronger flavor than it seems to provide otherwise.

Sometimes, this tea is pretty good. Sometimes it really, really isn’t. It is a difficult tea to brew without burning the green, but still getting full flavor out of the blacks. I think I’ve finally found the perfect time/temperature combo for me. It brings out the cinnamon, and earl grey green isn’t too bitter. I like this with a little honey and milk.

180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Smells a little medicinal in the bag, but that goes away when you brew it. It’s smoky, with a sharp taste to it from the ginger. There is the slightest undertone of carmel, which is very nice. However, it is VERY caffeinated (which fits Tony perfectly), so be careful drinking it unless you are really used to caffeine. I know I get a little jittery if I drink more than one cup.

Hi Jordyn! i know you aren’t super active here on steepster but i thought i would check with you and see if maybe you’d be into doing a swap? mostly just because i’d love to try the Tony, Bruce, and Steve adagio blends that you have. (if you haven’t finished them yet)
here is a link to some steepsters talking about it….

if you’re into it, perhaps you could pick a few teas out of my cupboard and i will send them to you along with extra baggies so you can send me some tea back? just an idea.
if this doesn’t interest you feel free to ignore :)
also if you don’t wanna swap tea but just wanna recommend some fics that’s okay too haha

I wasn’t sure about this tea at first, but it is very good. The green isn’t harsh at all, and the chamomile blends with it very well. It tastes like it has honey in it. A very soothing tea.

One of my favorite Cara blends. It took a while to figure out how to bring the flavors out, but if you add an extra teaspoon of the leaves, put in a drizzle of honey, a little bit of amber sugar crystals (just a tiny tiny bit or else it will be too sweet with the honey), and some cream it tastes just like apple pie. A very good dessert tea.

Note: This review is only for the sachets. I have not had the loose leaf version of this tea (though I would like to).

This tea is pretty good. It is very spicey, which I actually really like. It isn’t as flavorful as I would like – you definitely have to use filtered water or else you can taste the minerals in the water more than the tea. Still a good tea, but I would like to try it loose leaf to get it a little more flavorful.

I received this as a free sample with my order. I really enjoy this tea. It is sweet with a lot of tart, but you can bring out the sweetness easily with a little bit of amber sugar crystals. It is good hot, but even better iced.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

I don’t generally care for Teavana (in fact, I generally avoid them at all cost because I can’t stand being attacked by sales people), but I love this tea. This blend was actually what got me into tea in the first place. It is a very smooth chair, with light spices and some notes of berry. It is very easy to steep correctly, you just have to steep it for a long time (I do like my tea strong). I generally steep it for 10 or so minutes. One of my favorite teas.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

The pu erh dante adds such a unique, woodsy flavor to the blend. It is wonderful with some cream.
