Great flavor. So mellow and calming. I feel like I am laying in a field of flowers with the warm sun and a slight cool breeze blowing whenever I take a sip.

Don’t you love it when hotels give away free things? Well technically you are paying for them in your bill but it makes it more fun to think they are free. Tea for example is a great thing for hotels to give away. It’s cheap and it can make people happy. Especially those that don’t drink the in room coffee. Right now I am drinking one of the in-room teas. It’s quite good.

drank Earl Grey by Numi Organic Tea

Very smooth. Good hot, warm, and cold. No harsh after taste. In fact, not much after taste at all. It just ends on a fine note and leaves you wanting another sip. This one is for all you Earl Grey lovers. Besides Chamomile, the in-room tea that I brought back with me also included Earl Grey and this one is very pleasent. Not too over powering and has the right blend of Bergamot and black tea. Perfect for a day like today where it’s raining, thundering and getting increasingly darker. (Is thundering a word? What an odd one that is)

Another TJmaxx find. When something says passion fruit or Lilikoi on it I feel that I have to try it. I’m not a terribly huge fan of Tulsi for their taste but they do have a good company. It’s also the types of teas that I find are good to drink when your not feeling well. This one I bought purely for the passion fruit flavor. All I tasted was tulsi with slight hints of Passion fruit. it was good regardless but I wished they added more passion fruit in.

heh, I got some straight tulsi tea from TJmaxx a while back :) Passion fruit sounds interesting!

drank Peppermint by Chado High Tea

Another tea from the many hotel teas I’ve picked up. Peppermint. You have to really try to mess this one up. Even from an unknown “tea company” like this one. Just like most other lower grade peppermint brands. Nothing overly special about this one.

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

If I were to describe this tea like a fight it would go like this: You would step into the ring and the fight would commence with honey skating around you making everything sticky and slippery. He/she would bring you down with one clever roundhouse. Then Lemon would drag you to the floor in puckering fashion. Your eyes watering and your mouth stuck in the ‘fish’ position. Last would be Ginseng who would finish you off with a kick to the side. This tea is just too bitter with not enough flavor.

drank Vanilla Rooibos by Tazo

Good flavor. Light on the vanilla and heavy on the Rooibos. I think it would make for a wonderful latte with pure Rooibos concentrate.

Dry. I don’t really understand how a tea can leave your mouth feeling dry but this one is good at doing that. The taste overall isn’t anything special. But then again as you all know, I’m not especially fond of English Breakfast Tea. But I will still keep drinking it in hopes of one day finding one that I don’t think is bland.

Perhaps I got a bland bag or I didn’t steep it long enough; whatever the case, I am not tasting much strawberry or lychee. This is disappointing because I really love both of those flavors. The black tea that they use is quite good though.

Today is St. Patty’s Day. It’s the first tea I thought of to drink. A little cliche I know but whatever. Even though I don’t think it’s close to what they drink in Ireland (see link below) I still think its good. It has an interesting grassy, chocolate-y, minty flavor to it.

drank L'Abricot by Fauchon
255 tasting notes

I have to start making a list of who sent me what. I go on my trips and bring some with and now I can’t remember who sent me what.

Anyway, this tea is good. If you like apricots, even if they give you gas, you should try this tea out. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from this tea but as soon as I steeped the tea that wonderful apricot scent came forth and I was like… whoa. It has cooled down quite a bit since breakfast but it still tastes quite good. The black tea does over power the apricot slightly but in a good way. Making sure it’s presence stays known I suppose.

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)
