I’m not sure what it was, but I really disliked this one. It reminds me of Stash’s Hibiscus teas, which I also really dislike. I wonder if it has licorice root in it.

I liked this one, but it tasted more like Hibiscus-apple than Strawberry Vanilla.

I liked this. This is the sencond gingery rooibos chai I’ve had lately, and I’ve liked both of them, so I will keep that in mind for he future.

I had this with some milk and a pinch of sweetener, but it seemed a bit too sweet for me. I seem to be very picky about my pumpkin teas.

This is quite good. It’s definitely on the sweeter end, and just a touch artificial, but not unpleasantly so. It’s mostly a pleasantly creamy chocolate-coconut flavor. It’s not a super strong flavor, but I think it would be too sweet if I used two teabags, like I have for other RoT teas. I’ll bet this would be good with milk.

drank Osmanthus by Adagio Teas

Sample from Nichole. Thank you!

I’ve been curious about this for a while. I always like trying new herbal teas and this sold out before I could put in an order. I wasn’t a fan of this though. When I first opened the package, the smell reminded me of something, but it took me a while to place it. This smells like eyeshadow. I don’t think eyeshadow smells bad, but it’s not something I’ve ever thought of tasting. This just strikes me as really odd.

Herbal TTB.

I got the Herbal TTB that I started in January back today and it’s packed full of things I want to try. I thought this looked interesting so I gave it a whirl, but honestly I couldn’t drink more than a couple of sips of it. It was kind of gross. Ah, well. On to the next sample

Marzipan

They had this as a sample the one time I visited. Vile.

I’m glad to have the chance to try it, because I’m always curious about unusual herbal teas, but unfortunately it tasted really unpleasant. I would still be interested in trying tomato teas, but this one was not for me.

Wow this has a surprisingly low score. I actually quite liked it. It has a delicate strawberry flavor, with just a hint of oolong to it. Most of the berry teas I drink are bold, hibiscus-based blends, so this is a nice change of pace.

TheLastDodo

Maybe it was the name?

This is good! I like it as much if not more than the jasmine greens I’ve had.

drank Eggnog by DAVIDsTEA

Sample from VarieTEA. Thank you!

I was curious about this because I like creamy teas, but at the same time I wasn’t sure that an Eggnog flavored tea would work well on a green rooibos base. This also comes presweetened, which I don’t always appreciate. As it turns out, my concerns were well-founded. This is sweeter than I prefer, not all that cream, and tastes weird and artificial with the green rooibos base. I am not a fan.

I drink a lot of herbal tea, and the occasional cup of traditional tea here and there. I really enjoy experimenting with my own blends. I tend to reach for floral and savory teas in the spring, fruity teas in the summer, spice, nut, and barley teas in the fall, and dessert and honeybush teas in the winter.

Flavors I like:
Tea (unflavored/desert blacks, dark oolongs, jasmine green, unflavored/fruity/floral whites)
Desert (chocolate, molasses caramel, vanilla, honey, cream)
Spices (ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, black pepper)
Fruit(raspberry, honeydew, lemon, lime, apple, blueberry, plum, fig, grape, pineapple, orange, mango, grapefruit)
Flowers (jasmine, hibiscus, chamomile, rose, chrysanthemum)
Nuts (coconut, hazelnut, pecan, cashew)
Misc. (anise, honeybush, green rooibos, mint, barley, rosemary, dandelion leaf, rice)

Flavors I Dislike: cardamon, lemongrass, coffee, chicory, red rooibos, lavender, licorice root, stevia; artificial peach, cherry, and almond flavors; bitter or astringent teas, unflavored greens,

I have participated in the Overboard TTB, the Butiki Herbal Blending Box, and the Butiki Educational TTB and am currently running the Herbal TTB and the Monthly TTB Club
