drank Paris by Harney & Sons
281 tasting notes

The smell is better then the taste, but the taste is good. I’ve never been to Paris but if there were a tea to go along with every city name this one would be a good fit. Perhaps I steeped it too long. I am tasting some bitterness and more black tea then I am the other flavors. I will retry this again and be more careful about my steep time.

Preparation
5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

I love this tea. I prepare it with just under boiling water and let it steep for 4 minutes. It’s only slightly bitter that way but the flavor stands out more – personally.

drank Plum Crazy by Joy's Teaspoon

Well shoot. I steeped what was left of the sample. Mostly broken tea leaves. Even with the brokenness i can still tell this is a good tea. Mine just lacks some of the plum.

Not really a fan of this tea. Pretty sure i steeped it for the right amount of time. Not tasting much chocolate though. This is one I’ll just have to retry and see if it comes out better next time.

You might want to edit your review as the tea is called Slimful :)

It’s really good with a touch of milk.

drank Raspberry Patch by Adagio Teas
281 tasting notes

Some herbals pack a punch and some just gently land kisses on your forehead. This one is a forehead kisser. IT’s nice and light but still has enough flavor to make you feel like your not drinking flavored water. I was hoping for more raspberry flavor. Perhaps I shall go stick the remaining raspberries we have in our fridge into the tea. In fact I think I shall.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

The first couple of sips I took I did not like. Way too pepperminty. As it cools down the flavor blend better but I still don’t like the pepper mint. Don’t get me wrong its a good tea. I guess I’m just not in the mood for peppermint right now.

It’s a very subtle cookie. The almond is also subtle but in a good way. Think I will try this one again with some amaretto honey and see what happens.

Amaretto honey sounds amazing :)

My husband would enjoy this if he could drink it. Alas, it has dairy so he can’t. The orange flavor is very subtle compared with the chocolate. Which is probably good because using real orange slices to flavor things (when they are dried) can be tough. Most of the time they end up bitter.

Preparation
3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

drank Chocolate Chai by Chai Diaries
281 tasting notes

I’m going to have to give an official rating later. I think I steeped it too long and lost the chocolate flavor. I can still kinda taste it. The chai is good though. It doesn’t have that spicy kick I like but the flavors are enough for me to look past that.

Going to add some chocolate almond milk and warm it up…

Too hot… but good!

Hi – try steeping it for just about 3-5 mins…its subtle more as an aftertaste…

drank Caramel Apple Oolong by 52teas

Better hot. I love the apple flavor with the touch of caramel. The oolong they use is good but I don’t think it’s anything special.

Preparation
1 tsp

Tea. Like coffee and many other things, is basically just flavored water. But don’t you tell any tea or coffee drinkers that.

I’m willing to try out any type of tea, except of course the ones they suggest nursing mothers to not drink. (Like ginseng tea… and I love ginseng sadface)

The cute little baby in the picture is my daughter, Athena. She loves to stick out her tongue.
