I feel so privileged to have gotten a free sample of this one! It is extremely smooth, malty and caramelly. I’m on my third steep now and savoring every sip :)

I only have one tsp left of this after I finish drinking this cup. Makes me sad because I LOVE this one! Must savor it…

I can’t remember who gave me this sample…but thanks! I really like lemongrass, which is good since that is 90% of the flavor. It is good but would be even better with +50% more pineapple and or coconut flavoring :)

I think this sample was also from Emilie I love me some jasmine and I love me some coconut, so I was super excited to try this! It is very light and bright and I’m mainly tasting the jasmine here. I may not have known there was coconut in this without seeing it in the name. Its pretty good though :)

Thanks Emilie for the swap! I am very fond of white teas in general. The vanilla seems more prominent than the pineapple in this blend. It is enjoyable but a bit too gentle. I’d prefer a stronger flavor, I think! Overall pretty tasty though :)

Yum! Finally tried this one tonight. It’s really nice but I prefer the piña colada honeybush slightly. I DO want to try this one as a latte! I bet it’d be fab :)

Thanks for the sample My Friend Rashad! Apparently I am a big fan of nutty teas. This one is good times! Nice and nutty and creamy too and the green tea isn’t overly astringent. Perfect!

My afternoon tea is also a swap from My Friend Rashad! (thanks again!) The black tea base on this one is very earthy (almost too earthy for me) with a punch-you-in-the-face fruit flavor on top. Drinkable but not going on my shopping list or anything.

My Friend Rashad

A lot of people don’t like it. I have history with this tea. It’s nostalgic for me.

Stephanie

Oh, I totally get that.

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.
