back to a green tea after drinking blacks….
The dry leaves are like a forest green, curly, toasty
I love this. When brewed…The smell of raw sunflower seeds, green beans and butter….then the final brew tastes like butter, sunflower seeds (raw) and maybe fava beans? Smooth
It’s a beautiful light emerald green color

Wow. I was expecting something more from this tea. I wanted Earl grey. I wanted vanilla. I wanted Creme. I thought I was cheated on all 3 parts of that name. The bergamot was lacking and was too mellow…and the vanilla was almost non existent. Where did the Creme go?
The name of a tea should tell a guy what he’s about to drink & it didn’t
I’m disappointed

I think I’ve said this before in another Tulsi review. I hope what they say about Tulsi is true. the claims of calming I mean. All the health benefits.
This is a great herbal tea blend. The flavors blend so well. It smells nice. no after taste. Slightly sweet & fruity, but not candy
This was a sample sent to me in my order and I’m grateful to Fusion for introducing me to Tulsi
This is what I need to help me relax as I’m watching Hulu and getting ready to sleep

This just might be be my ‘go to’ (so far, just quote me on this January 2012 day) Earl Grey. I mean, why bother drink a plain Earl Grey after this one? At least, for me anyway. The bergamot is not too strong and the vanilla-creme flavor stands out….but shouldn’t it? If it didn’t, then why make an earl grey Creme Vanilla tea?
It doesn’t need sugar at all…but I guess when i’m feeling it..I could make a strong brew, add some sugar and soy milk and go to town

We definitely have to share the Vanilla Creme Earl Grey’s. I have the one from California Tea House & I think you might like it. I love it! I would love to try this one. Wanna swap??

if you are nice enough. Post your address here so I’ll know where to go

SunnyinNY

Umm….around the corner. You know the spot! :)

I like this one a lot too. I bought more, along with the (plain) Vanilla, and can’t decide which I like more. Tonight I combined them and it’s perfect for my tastes.

This is a great Mate. It blends the toasty-nuttiness of pistachios seamlessly with the tangy citrus flavor of lime so well. Not one flavor dominates, but it masks that musky herbal flavor that Mate has, which I find slightly strange.
yum

Do you have some to share? Just enough for one cup please. I would love to try it!!

SunnyinNY

Thanks!!!

rmark25

your welcome!!! lol

SunnyinNY

I really wish I could like this flavor. I feel so bad. I love the smell, but that funky aftertaste really didn’t help me enjoy the cup.

rmark25

If you feel that bad there is only ONE thing to do…NYC has many tall buildings hint hint

rmark25

but seriously..it’s the Mate..it’s an acquired taste. It’s very herbal & earthy.

SunnyinNY

haha….good thing I know your sick sense of humor.
Seriously, I don’t think I’m going to care for yerba mates. I really didn’t like the funky aftertaste.

rmark25

then I think you will like Guayusa. It’s a similar herb used in South America. I believe it has anti oxidants and healing qualities, plus caffeine. It doesn’t have that earthy flavor, but more of a pleasant sweet flavor. I had a few samples from “Butiki Teas” that were really nice

SunnyinNY

I’ll try it.
I think I’m now afraid of yerba mates after this one.

I’m nervous about white teas, but the ones I’ve tried from 52teas have been really nice and inviting. This is no exception. Lightly sweet, hints of strawberries and lemon. Enjoying it hot on a cold Winter night, but must be awesome cold in the Summer!
It has a great aroma and the flavors are delicate and not too intrusive. A nice departure from blacks & greens..my taste buds can relax a bit just about now.
I’m still weary about trying whites by itself

yum. A nicely flavored green. Not too strong-the pineapple dominates, but I swear I taste & smell guava. Nice. The green tea flavor is present and really nice. Slightly sweet, as well.
