This one reminds me of an old SpecialTeas blend (White Chocolate Moon). It’s almost exactly the same, so it’s nice finally finding a replacement for a long-discontinued tea.

Out of the 4 blends I bought at Tealuxe in Cambridge, MA last sprig, this one has to be my favorite. It’s a nice blend of fruits, and a balance of sweet and tart.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

This tea has grown on me somewhat. I am not huge on chai, but sometimes it hits the spot. This one is lighter on the spice with some notes of pumpkin.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

This was the 2nd tea my aunt brought back for me from Benalmádena, Spain. This one is light on the flavor,so you get the tea as well as the cherry. They also have some amazing flavors on their website, such as Té verde champan con fresas (Champagne and Strawberry Green Tea), that I want to order!

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec

My aunt recently came back from her trip to Spain, and I had asked her before leaving to pick up some loose teas for me if she could find them. Among the many teterías and tea shops she found, she got me two teas from the town she was staying in mostly (Benalmádena).

I like this tea, because it is simple, yet strong in flavor. The chili was what I noticed first, but the the cherry came into the picture soon thereafter. I may be able to find this one stateside due to the simplicity of the blend, but I will hopefully be ordering some more of their teas once I find out how many limbs it will cost me to have it shipped from Spain.

This tea pretty much tastes like a cocktail. It has a sort of ‘fizzy’ note along with a Cranberry/Pineapple flavor. It’s not bad.

I was given some of this by a coworker of mine, and I like it somewhat. The pear is very nice, but there’s something tart in the overall taste that I’m not ultra-crazy about.

I know several people who had mixed thoughts on this one, and I wasn’t so sure about this one based on the description myself. This one has a lot going on, but overall the flavor is pleasant.

I expected a lot from this, and I enjoy this for the most part. The only part I don’t enjoy is the liquorice root. Those notes tend to disappear when I blend this with another tea.

This blend has a nice balance between citrus and spice. It’s not my most favorite from the new teas, but it is one I’ll probably have around just in case I’m in the mod for it.
