This was one of the generous samples that was added to my order. Thank you!
I love Passion Fruit anything…and now I’m beginning to realize I really enjoy green Rooibos.
It brews a nice golden-orange-brown color. It has the flavor and aroma of passion fruit without all that acidity-which I like, but might be unpleasant in a beverage like this
It’s sweet & fruity, but tame. I will be ordering this.
It must be great iced with a little sugar for more body and a touch of citric acid for tartness?

I like this…Let me just start off saying I don’t know what characteristics a good EB should have, but I’m assuming something quite strong that would take milk & sugar and be great in the morning?
This one fits nicely. Smooth, sweetish, nice. I like it. Aromatic.
I had it plain.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

drank Cream by Adagio Teas
71 tasting notes

Wow, the reviews for this tea have a range!
I’m going to rate it higher…I think it needed a little bit of sugar to help the creaminess come through. I think Adagio could have put a little more effort in this one…maybe instead of just a Ceylon (AGAIN), they could have maybe blended it with an Assam for maltiness and a touch of vanilla?
I kinda like it. I probably will not drink it on it’s own again. I’m going to hunt down some marshmallow root and add that with some vanilla and experiment. Maybe I’ll add some licorice root?
Ok, my high grade comes from the fact that it’s a good base to add some herbs to it. It’s nice, though. little boring & slightly disappointing, but I’ll still drink tea. It’s Vegan, that’s a bonus

thank you Angel at Teavivre for this generous sample
coming home at 6:30 AM from work I was looking around at what kind of tea to try..and perhaps review here on Steepster. I was also pretty hungry, so I started re-heating my Vegan Jamaican Curry Chicken to go along with the Tea.
This is a great black Tea, smooth, slightly smokey and with that delicious maltiness that is great alone and very much complimented my ‘Curry Chicken’
It has a familiar aroma & tastes I’m trying to describe..? Maybe nutty as well? Hmm, it’s an awesome black tea that’s a “stand alone” and for when I’m felling in the mood for a black with a pedigree. It’s something to savor. I will order this one for sure
I brewed it according to Teavivre’s suggestion at 185, but almost went for boiling.
Did I mention the dried leaves were beautiful?

drank Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas
71 tasting notes

This is the right tea as I get ready to head out into the cold, get into a subway to deal with the crowds in Times Square so I can go to work.
It has that familiar flavor of sherbets I had as a kid at Baskin Robins…just more natural ;)
Raspberry, Orange and lime nicely combined. No bitterness. kinda sweet..a little sugar “brought it together”, but optional
Another hit from 52teas

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

Vegan!
Great flavor. This is what Genmaicha should always taste like. Love the real marshmallow root. This is sweet, smooth with a hint of vanilla. Yum

A surprisingly tasty black tea. It’s brisk with the real taste of pineapple. You feel the tinge of acidity, but still remains smooth.
It’s great alone, but I’ve also blended it 50/50 with a coconut black tea and that was a great “Pina Colada”
I think people need to sample the teas from ‘Enjoying Teas’ more. They are affordable & have a nice selection of teas and herbals
I bet it’s great iced

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

I’ll check out their website!

You are in SF, so shipping will be fast! When I’ve ordered from them I swear they use Camels! It takes forever..but that’s a minor complaint I guess ;)

More lime than coconut. Sweet, juice, fragrant. Probably great iced. Fun.
I like it. In the world of citrus flavored greens..this one shines. I’m going to wait until summer to have it iced!

This is a nice addition to the world of Earl Greys…bergamot shines here with the aroma of lemon grass and oranges right behind. It’s nice..if you like Earl Greys. How did they conceive of this in other Russia? Maybe the Silk Road or something? Do they really drink this in Russia or is it some British invention? I’m a little too lazy to Google it right now..I need to finish the tea.
