I’m glad I grabbed a couple of servings of this one. The black base is unobtrusive, and the Lychee flavor is natural and delicious. This would be wonderful iced!

I found this one in the tea box and grabbed a serving’s worth. Eh, its not bad. I like a good green oolong, and the peach flavoring is not bad. This one is just average in my book!

Tonight I was in the mood for a treat! I made up some strong decaf English breakfast, mixed in some of my chai mix in. THEN I added a shot of creme de cacao! Heck yeah!!!!

drank Northern Wilds by Verdant Tea

Final tasting from the October Verdant Blends Club box!

This one is really hitting the spot for me today. Very complex, but well balanced. It is herbal and woodsy and does taste like an autumn forest :) The mint is present but not overpowering…same with the cinnamon. Kudos Verdant!

Numi is pretty good for bagged tea, so I grabbed one of these to try. I was surprised to read that this is primarily a green tea, with just a hint of pu-erh! The magnolia is very intriguing! We have magnolias in our yard and I love the scent. The magnolia+green is like a twist on jasmine green, and the pu-erh adds a hint of rich undertone to the whole package. Very nice. I would love to see someone like Verdant or Mandala do a straight pu-erh version of magnolia!

Backlog from last night!

I think I need to play around with my steeping parameters with this one. I brewed it up a little weak for my tastes. Also, there’s a flavor in here I’ve never tasted before! That is always exciting! I presume it is the dandelion root.

Also? I know this is supposed to be caffeine free but I could NOT sleep last night! It could have been a coincidence, but man, it sure felt like I’d had some sort of stimulant.

drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas

  1. from the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box

I got my first traveling tea box today from Tea Sipper! I had to go to the post office to pick it up on my lunch break. I haven’t had a chance to look through it all yet, but I found this near the top and I’ve always wanted to try it!

Well, I’m always happy to try a 52Teas blend without having to commit to an entire 2oz pouch. This one lives up to it’s reputation! This is one of the better 52Teas blends I have tried. I love coconut! This one is very creamy and the black base is mild and unobtrusive. There isn’t a whole lot in the pouch so I’ll probably leave the rest in there for other Steepsters to try. I just wanted a cups worth for sampling purposes :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Mmmmmmm…I hope this gets.resteeped soon!

Tea Sipper

I hope you find a few you like in the teabox! :D

I did find many things to try! I separated the samples I took out into my own little baggies, and it will be heading on to BrewTEAlly Sweet TODAY! I hand wrote out everything I added and took out, but I will type it all up ASAP!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Cheater! Your supposed to enjoy the box. But this is very smart too. I should just do that now with the teas I have left to try in my box since this one is heading my way already :)

Trying my first tea from the Verdant blend club I am sharing with BrewTEAlly Sweet!

Looks like a couple other people have written tasting notes on this one but no one wants to give it a rating! heh.

The spearmint and tulsi are the prominent notes here, with the warmer spices and puerh itself taking a back seat. Not a bad blend, but I think personally, this morning I was hoping for something with a stronger darker base note. I’m still on my first steep, so maybe the 2nd will have a little more oompf to it. I will give it credit for being very forest-like!

Like Bonnie said, I imagine this would be excellent chilled :)

Sample sipdown! This tea is really hitting the spot for me today. I was so busy this weekend I barely had a chance to sit down and enjoy a good cup! This is a really nice rich complex black tea that I would totally drink more of if I had some. I’m really looking forward to trying my half of the Verdant blend club box which should be arriving today! :D
