One of my favorite custom blends! I love creamy flavored teas. Blackberry ice cream is a nice balance of cream and fruit. The fruit isn’t so prominent, which is great since I’m not a fan of hot fruity teas. I added some non-fat milk and agave :)

Blended this with PG Tips loose leaf. Delicious blend! I use only one tsp of WCC and one tsp of PG Tips for 2 full sized mugs. Can’t wait for my boyfriend to try it out. :D
A very strong and concentrated brew since the leaves are crushed up. I steeped for about a minute, and I also added Rishi’s West Cape Chai, sweetner, and milk to balance out the strong black tea. The blend was pretty good! :)
Iced! :) Yum!
Yum! This is great except it got bitter the longer i had it sitting there…

Yum! A nice and non-bitter black tea blend! :) Tastes like most other black teas that I enjoy. I have a ton of it too since I got this off Amazon.
My sister went to Paris and came home with Kusmi’s green teas in little cute canisters! Cute! This one smells so good out of the can! Brewed, it is less intense but still delicious nontheless. Perfect! I want to try this iced as well.
YES! Just finished my exam! Step 2 is complete!
I finally got around to opening and trying out the chai sampler from Adagio… starting with this one – Green Chai aka Bengal Green Chai. One thing I noticed about most chai blends is the amount of spices in the mix. I am almost tempted to pick them out and put them aside to use on different occasion. You can bring out so much flavor with not so many spices. This one had a decent amount.
I love how the dry leaves are rolled. It is very pretty. Very spicy – cinnamon or cloves. I can smell it from across the room. No need for sugar. Next time I’ll try it with sugar and/or milk! I love to experiment. _

I’m trying out all the teas from The Republic of Tea Experience Sampler Cube. This one is delicious. The vanilla stands out more in this blend than it does in Adagio’s. I like it. It smells just like Adagio’s too. I like this one.
Not so bad. Pretty good. I got this from a swap off of teachat. It looks like houjicha but mostly twigs and stems. It smells and tastes nutty, a little smokey, and very light. It is a milder houjicha… I have to try this again another time, but so far so good.
sugar water. My mom stopped by and gave me a bottle.
I have another box of these tea bags. Soon I’ll be heading off to Tanzania! I know I’ll be drinking tons of these there! I can’t wait to stock up on more!
I need to stay awake! Tomorrow is my big exam!! crosses fingers This tea is helping! I know I shouldn’t be online right now, but I can’t help myself. Go tea go!
My last sample of this – gone! I am thinking about buying this as soon as I’ve finished off more teas. I still have a long wishlist!
Delicious! My boyfriend shared a cup with me. We both agree – its great! Still remains as my favorite from RoT.

I wanted to try this out so I bought a box at the grocery store nearby. I can’t rate it this time since I used it to make spiced chai the way I like to make it – on the stove. I am studying for my step 2 board exam, which I’m taking on Monday and needed a break. Chai – my comfort beverage of choice!
This is exactly what I needed.
This was f a n t a s t i c! I added 2 heaping tablespoons of this blend. From the box (its a cute box IMO) it smelled like it would be strong and possibly bitter alone… the leaves are all cut up really small – fannings? CTC? Is that what its called? This blend turned out darker than any of chais that I’ve made in the past. It was not bitter! So delicious! Great tea for chai. Well… I think strong tea is great for chai. It balances out all the spices. _
If I were to try this plain, I would probably add half a teaspoon and steep for a short amount of time. Til next time!

Yum! I try to use this as sparingly as possible. I love this blend so much! I added some Caranda Fine Foods – Usambara African Breakfast to the mix, agave, and milk. Delicious :)
