Started my day today with a big to-go cup of this iced. Had a tough time at an outdoor art fest with 100+ degree heat indexes today. After this tea I just drank gallons of water till later on when I got home. Glad it’s over with. Probably one of my least favorite art fairs ever!

Smaug again this afternoon. Still good but I may have needed a little bit more caffeine….Zzzzz…

I made myself a treat for breakfast this morning! 1/2 tsp of this with a small handful of ice, half an avocado, a cup of milk and 2 tsp sugar in the blender. SO GOOD! The white tea flavor goes really well with avocado :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Wow never would have thought. I can’t wait to try my sample from you:):)

Stephanie

Have you ever had an avocado shake? My husband taught me to make them. He learned about them in Brazil I think. Sometimes adds a drop of rosewater! They’re super tasty even without the matcha :)

Fjellrev

Interesting combination! I’ve never had avocado in a shake either.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Never! Rose water??? Love it!!! I just never know where to buy it

Stephanie

Asian food store or international market!

drank Sencha by Harney & Sons

I have no idea where I got this sample sachet from Harney and Sons, but this is not a bad sencha at all! I’m fairly impressed :)

Gosh I love green tea SO MUCH! It’s so perky and green and comforting.

Me too!—which is so weird for me to say because I hated it for the longest time, ha. Yay greens.

Oooh, cool vanilla/minty goodness! I really wasn’t sure about this flavor combo, thank you BrewTEAlly Sweet for sending me some in a swap!

I am picky about my mint teas, but this one is nicely balanced with the vanilla, and the lavender is in there somewhere, but it is not overpowering at all. Very nicely blended and I could sure use the energy boost from the guayusa this afternoon! I still prefer the Good Morning Sunshine flavor of guayusa, but this is a nice change of pace :)

I felt the same way about the flavor combo—seemed odd to me at first—and then found I really dug it because it was blended so well. And yeah the way it’s soothing but also energizing is awesome.

Mmmm, good oolong. Thanks for giving me this one forever ago Dinosara! I have one cup left :)

Well this is interesting! Disclosure- I haven’t had real bacon in over 10 years (semi-vegetarian). I am mostly getting chocolate from this tea, with a hint of smoke. I’m actually pretty glad the bacon flavor is subtle. This is definitely not something I’d drink every day, but I was very curious to try it! Thanks again RogersCK! :)

Yay! I finally got to try Smaug! Thanks RogersCK :D

I’ve been sampling a lot of cinnamon teas lately, it seems. This is the very first green tea with cinnamon though! I really appreciate the uniqueness of it. Everyone else’s tasting notes made me expect it to be a lot spicier than it actually is. So, if you haven’t tried it yet, don’t be scared! He’s a pretty friendly dragon :)

Even though I’ve been tasting a lot of FANCY cinnamon teas lately I think my favorite is still Harney and Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice! That stuff is IN YOUR FACE cinnamon! This is a refreshing change though. I love the hint of cayenne in it.

RogersCK

Glad you liked it! I love the cinnamon and cayenne pepper mix.

This is an excellent tea for Fall! Makes me think of spiced sweet potatoes, warm cider…stuff like that :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I wonder where I went wrong with this one.

Stephanie

Everyone’s taste buds are a little different…
