wow I have had this tea for so long. I think it was maybe the second order I got from davids tea. and it took me until now to drink it. all because of hibiscus.

someone else said this and it’s true, this is basically Forever Nuts from David’s Tea. which is a very popular tea. too sweet for me to really enjoy, but if offered i will always say yet to a cup.
herbal caramel teas always seem to do okay by be.

drank Rooibos Vanilla by Adagio Teas

i’m getting down to the point where i have almost no more sample or swap teas to try. and all the ones i do have left are herbal.
that is pretty amazing.
but all it means is that i can spend lots of time planning and day dreaming about what tea i’m gonna buy when i have the space!
i got this rooibos to use in a personalized sherlock inspired tea i made for myself.
it’s not offensive. it’s not really anything. i gulped it down and it was gone. sluurp.

i knowwww! Sherlock! January! (or maybe even sooner in the UK!)
i’m saving up the last few cups of all my sherlock teas just for the season 1 & 2 rewatch and the season 3 debut. :)

okay warning, i’m not really a flower tea kinda gal. i like chocolate and vanilla and cremes and mints and tend to stay away from lavender and rose petals. and his tea is chocolate and rose petals. so i rolled the dice.
and i really wish i liked this one more. it’s good. it’s fine. it’s totally a nice mellow chocolate. and i will definitely drink the whole tin. it’s just that it has a slight alcohol smell to me that i can’t entirely get past it. and i suspect it’s the rose petals.
but i’ll probably come around!
give me a couple weeks drinking this and i’ll be singing it’s glory.
but i still totally LOVE Mistie’s Blend and will buy it always and forever.

i drank this.
herbal tea is just another way to get hydrated for my saturday runs.

JustJames

because it’s chamomile, you couldn’t pay me….. (peppermint would be another story) BUT herbal tea is good for hydrating? very interesting!

Shmiracles

i knowwww i hate chamomile too. but i’ll try anything once. just once though.

keychange

Hate chamomile too.

Shmiracles

i always say, it tastes like soapy grass.

Starfevre

Technically all tea is hydrating, although the ones with no caffeine more so than otherwise.

umm is this even tea? it tastes like just lemon in water. that is colored very dark. whew. i might lose this tea on the way home. like into the river or something. i’m not a snob really but i don’t like hibiscus much at all and this tea isn’t even trying.
i have had an intensely pms shite day. like don’t ask me what i think about anything and don’t believe anything i say today. and also every song, even bad ones, sound so beautiful and also everybody should just stop moving and look out the window. just sayin.
screw dance class. i’m gonna go watch phil coulson instead.

Ellyn

Oy, I so understand those days. Feel better!

Shelley_Lorraine

of course it’s not a tea. The box says that it’s a seasoning! duh. Might go good on fish. . .

Shmiracles

Shelley i laughed out loud for realz haha
Ellyn i was surprised at how nice it was to be reminded that others experience the same thing. so, thanks for relating! it helped!

small tea story
i ran really far on saturday and then went to lunch with my boyfriend and ate everything in sight.
then he had to work for an hr so he dropped me off at the tea shop so i could get a cup! but when i got there they sadly told me they didn’t have any cups!
so then i went to panera to get a cup of tea there instead, but when i got there i was like ‘i don’t want this tea’ and i just asked for a cup and lid instead. the teenage panera-worker said i could just have a cup! hah i took it and ran.
i took the cup back to carytown teas and ordered this Pu-erh. they thought it was funny that i was determined enough to supply my own cup.

this pu-erh is not a super favorite. i kept the tea bag and had a second steep the next day. it’s true that pu-erh can be amazing. when it’s really good it will easily skyrocket to the top of my list! but when it’s mediocre it can tend towards bummer-city. this one is not memorable. and kinda lame.

JustJames

and yet the story is awesome…. so something grand came from it!

i like cardamon! i do i do. i like how it looks in it’s little pod and i like how it tastes and smells in my purple tea tumbler.

idk why i am so weary of cinnamon. i must have had some scaring experience once that has given me ptcd (post traumatic cinnamon disorder).

but heck if cardamon doesn’t win this cup! yay delicious

Thanks to Anna for this sample!

JustJames

HAHAHAHAHAHA PTCD……
