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! :)

drank Smaug Tea by 52teas

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 :)

I wonder where I went wrong with this one.

Stephanie

Everyone’s taste buds are a little different…

YUM. This is really good. I’m having trouble distinguishing it from the normal Laoshan Green, though. I’ll have to taste them side by side soon for comparison :)

Ooh look what I lost in the fridge and then found again! Tasty afternoon snackage as a blended latte with ice, milk and honey! Yum :)

Courtney

You keep your matchas in the fridge? Fascinating. Do you find the keep better?

Stephanie

I’ve heard they keep better in the fridge, but I’ve not been drinking matcha long enough to know if it’d go bad quicker or not!

Dinosara

I keep mine in airtight bags in the freezer. I’ve had them for a long time but they are still very flavorful!

Courtney

Hmm. Good to know. I’ve always kept mine in the bags they come in, then within a ziploc, in my cupboard. I’ve had four flavours for at least 6 months and they still taste great. Perhaps the fridge or freezer would be even better.

Had this for breakfast. It is good but I prefer green oolongs!

Another amazing blend by Verdant! Sweet but spicy, warm but cooling…there is a lot going on in this tea despite only 3 ingredients! I can see how this might not be a tea for everyone, but personally I wish I had ordered more than just a sample pack! I think it would be perfect to sip on this fall! I agree with pretty much everything JustJames said in his review :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

As soon as I’m done with the tea box, I need to try all the blends I ordered. I can’t wait to try this one!

Stephanie

Looking forward to other reviews!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

It was between this one and the Golden Fleece this morning. Golden Fleece was the choice… Will have to try later today :):)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
