Thanks Tealizzy for letting me try this one! I love coconut :) this is very nice, but I think I prefer the Golden Moon coconut Pouchong slightly more. They are very similar though!

Tealizzy

Ha! Me too! Well, now we know which one’s best!

Thank you Tealizzy for the sample of this! Bancha is probably my least favorite green tea. There is something almost fishy about it. I definitely prefer a sweeter sencha! Also not really detecting any rose here…I’ve had some pretty decent ones from Harney but this one seems to be a bust.

Tealizzy

Oh no! Thought you might like it because it’s a green. Oh well!

Stephanie

No biggie, glad I got to try it :)

Yay! Thanks CK for swapping with me for this!

If you like matcha and pina colada you’ll very likely dig this. I thought it was great as an iced latte!

How did you prepare yours? I’m experimenting right now

Stephanie

Hmm, I think a cold latte with real milk- shaken with some sugar or honey, I forget which one- in a cocktail shaker with ice.

Thanks to Tealizzy for sending me a sample of this! Everyone’s tasting notes on it have made me DROOL! Anyway, I’m amazed at how natural and BREADY this tea is! It really does taste like cinnamon bread but without that artificial taste some flavored teas get. I can see why everyone raves about it. OK, I gotta go steep it again right now… :D

Tealizzy

It’s SO GOOD! :D

Stephanie

I got three excellent steeps out of it! I don’t think I’ll have time for a 4th before I get off work, but I’m half tempted to drag the used leaves home somehow…lol

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA

WHOA this tisane is different! The smell of the steeped cup is exactly like a cinnamon roll. Warm cinnamon under sweet sticky vanilla frosting! I just want to keep sniffing it, lol. It tastes nutty, with a warm subtle cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. I’ve always been curious about this tea, but I didn’t expect to enjoy it this much! It’s definitely not something I’d drink very often, but it might be a nice winter evening treat.

Thanks so much to Tealizzy for the sample! :)

Stephanie

Ooh, I want a version of this with coconut in it. Mmmmm

Tealizzy

Glad you liked it! I agree that it smells delicious! Like baked goods! Just was too weird for me.

Craving pu-erh again. It doesn’t even taste that wonderful. I dunno what the deal is.

I knew this one would be good, but WOW! Regretting only buying a sample packet now. The rice is a little different here somehow than in other genmaichas, but it blends perfectly with the malty Laoshan black! I’m not detecting as much chocolate as the other reviewers, but I love it anyway. I tried this unsweetened and then sweetened the second half of my cup and I loved it both ways. Roasty caramelly goodness folks!

This is DELICIOUS! But I do think I prefer the Autumn Harvest! Oh well, it is still incredible and I’ll still gladly drink it all up :)
