Wasn’t much info on this one. Really thought this was going to be mediocre but surprisingly it’s quite good. I did luke warm water because I didnt feel like scalding my tongue. The black base could be a bit stronger but the bergamot is light enough that you can still taste it. Slightly fruity aftertaste.

This was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting more earthy and rose flavors but instead was bombarded by fruit and rose. Both in scent and in taste. The fruity essence is quite a bit more then expected.

Sometimes a good cup of tea is just what you need. This tea has a great base. The other flavors work well together. Definitely hints of berries and vanilla. Somewhat woodsy base.

drank Ripe Mango Oolong by Lupicia

This tea is amazing. I didn’t think could beat Alpanso Mango (and that one is right next to this one on the amazing scale). As soon as you open the packet the mango scent overpowers you. The taste is just the same. Is this base Tie Guan Yin? It matches so well with the mango. I’m cold steeping this one. It’s amazing.

drank Chai Guarana by DAVIDsTEA

Had to cold steep this one because there are no ceramic cups in the room. I’m tempted to try it hot later and see if the flavor improves but generally I find that most tea I cold steep are a bit stronger … this one is pretty lite. Not enough ‘spice’ to it for a chai. And I’m not entirely fond of the flavor. It leaves a weird aftertaste in my opinion.

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas

This tea has me stuck in a rut. It has a slight flavor reminiscent more of thai cooking then it does of thai tea. Which I was kinda hoping for thai tea but I feel like I should be eating this with a thai dish. It needs a bit more of a kick for it to be considered a chai in my thoughts. Otherwise its good.

To be honest I think it sounds better then it tastes. It’s somewhat tart, a bit lemony and not very raspberryish. I feel more like I’m drinking an herbal then a black as I taste no black base.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
