Sadness! This is the very last of this tea from WheezyBee.

It’s so tasty. IDK what it tastes like, exactly, but I’m getting vanilla and sweet-tart fruit. It’s very creamy, as well.

If it was available, I’d totally buy some. Sadly it’s not, but I’m really glad I was able to try it! Thank you!

drank Dosha Chai Rooibos by Teavana

A friend from work gave me some of this in exchange for some of my Kava Stress Relief tea.

Oh my gosh, is it delicious! It has pieces of real cinnamon stick in it. I taste coconut, apples, lots of warm cinnamon, and a sweet rooibos base. It’s warm and smooth and perfectly blended. Like liquid apple pie.

This tea is a game-changer for me. I was ready to write Teavana off as a bunch of overpriced hibiscus-lovers, but this made me reconsider them.

This is one of my all time favourite teas to sip in the evening. The cool, floral notes of the lavender are forefront, and perfectly complimented by the woodiness of the rooibos and the sweet, creaminess of the coconut.

Everything about this tea just makes me feel calm and happy. It’s very mellow, but still distinct and unique, and very easy to drink.

After a long weekend of road tripping, and all day in the car today, I’m so pleased to curl up on the couch with this cup.

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Floral, Lavender, Wood

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 1 tsp 7 OZ / 207 ML

Sipdown!

I had a lot of this today. It’s one of those teas that I neither love nor hate, and this was an easy sipdown. It’s good. Sometimes it’s fruitier than others. Sometimes it has this weird not-quite-creamy-but-trying-to-be-creamy taste to it. And it’s not a bad tea to end the night on.

drank Sakura Allure by Teavana

Yesterday’s steep of this was so disgustingly floral, I almost dumped it. If I wanted to drink perfume, I’d do so. Or … maybe it’s my fault for getting too many of the little rose buds in my infuser?

I digress.

I made an effort to mix up the little bit I have left so that my infuser wouldn’t be filled with flowers again. And it seems to have worked out — the first steep was fruity and quite nice! I was pleasantly surprised. The second steep, however, cooled a little too long and all I got was an oil mouthfeel. What a pity, too, seeing as the first cup of this was soooo tasty.

Preparation

First off, I am a big fan of Oat Straw tea, and was sad to see no one had listed any yet here on Steepster!

Oat Straw is such a mild, lovely tea. Great for kids and adults alike, it has a super mild, grassy and slightly sweet flavor that is like a warm summer day in a mug.

It has fantastic properties, too – high in b vitamins and magnesium and calcium, it is a great “nerve tonic” – super soothing and calming. Perfect before bed.

Anyway. This oat straw is high quality and really fresh smelling and looking. Nice mild grassy/oat flavor. I use this primarily to blend into other herbal blends. I steep for 5 minutes, but sometimes make an infusion and let steep for 4 hours.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

It’s interesting to me how different people taste different teas.

The other reviews of this tea say it has no flavor. I agree it is a lighter tea, but I don’t think it has no flavor. I love the flavors coming from this tea. I find it to be somewhat fruity, and then it ends quite sweet.

It doesn’t really do multiple infusions so well. A second infusion is lightly flavored, barely there.

I had never looked at the price of this tea on the website, and I don’t think I would buy it. So I am enjoying what I got in my July box, and the extra I got from the very sweet Marzipan

I like red raspberry tea for two reasons: One, because I don’t drink caffeine, and it’s great as an iced tea – tastes very similar to black tea.

Two, because it has some really great health benefits, particularly for women.

I tend to turn to Yogi teas when I am feeling lazy and don’t want to brew up my loose leaf. I am happy with the consistency of the quality of Yogi for the price. The flavor is not as full as I get with my loose leaf, but it definitely does the job.

I steep for 10 minutes.

Preparation
8 min or more

Decent Ceylon, very respectable. Not my favorite, as it can easily be over brewed and get a bit bitter. I prefer a brighter taste to my Ceylons. Surprisingly good iced.

I won’t even try to do this one justice. I had it a few times over the weekend and my dad kept going back to this one to drink it again and again. So i left some with him when we left. A better review will come later, promise :)
