Why do you call it cranberry when there is no cranberry in it!?!?! Doesn’t even really remind me of cranberries; just hibiscus. It’s better cold but even so I’m still mot enjoying drinking this… I’m gonna go make some matcha.

Picked this one up from Tjmaxx. You can always find an odd assortment of tea there. I’m actually tasting truffle! It’s quite a good mix of flavors but at end you get a distinct chocolate truffle flavor. It kinda sits in your mouth and makes you want a chocolate truffle.

Must have messed this up something fierce the first time I made this. The spices are definitely prevalent amoung the flavors. I’m not sensing much pumpkin. It’s there but it’s not as strong as I thought it was going to be.

drank Guava Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Smells like Bubblicios bubble gum. Tastes like…. something not guava. Something artificial. Kinda reminds me of something but I’m not quite sure of what that is. Maybe this tastes like a guava that I haven’t tasted but it sure doesn’t taste like Hawaiian guava.

1/2 tsp matcha and 6 oz milk

Sugar is the first ingredient so technically it should be a sugary flavor I get first but I don’t; it’s salty. I prepared it as it’s listed on the package. 8oz of almond milk and 2 tsp of matcha. I’m not tasting the cherry. Maybe it’s because of the almond milk.

Update: I made it again but this time with 4oz almond milk and 1tsp matcha. Much better but still no cherry anything. It’s fine as a plain matcha just don’t call it sakura for it’s cherry flavor.

Another update: This time I mixed in the matcha with water that was between hot and warm. And then I mixed in the almond milk. Still not tasting cherry but not saltiness.


Ugh, salty matcha sounds awful.


Yea… it was weird… I’m going to try it again and hope to change this


I didn’t like the two flavored matchas of theirs that I tried. :/

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

1:30 min steep. Floral flavor. Roses. Not much of a black base like I’m used to with straight black teas. As it cools down the normal woodsy flavor starts to appear. This is good with brownie brittle. The leaves have a very interesting aroma. Slightly dark chocolate, slightly woodsy almost oaky. The way the wet leaves look kinda creeps me out.

If you are looking for a good caramel apple/apple pie tasting tea then you’ve found it. Hints of cinnamon, apples, and cream pair very well with the rooibos and honeybush. This is quite tasty. Gets better as it steeps longer.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Cream

drank Sleigh Ride by DAVIDsTEA

Surprisingly I am enjoying this quite a bit more then I thought I would. Yes …yes it is a bit hibiscusy but if you can get over that it has a great nutty flavor to it. Though I don’t think the name Sleigh ride quite suits it. Figgy nutty pudding …or something like that. Also, it is much better when it’s a bit colder.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

So I have to be honest… I needed to get to a certain monetary amount in order to get the Timolino and this tea that came along with the ornament set helped me get there.

It has a smooth, flavorful texture. Surprisingly the peppermint isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. It’s more of an after taste that leaves you with a bit of a clean feeling. The tea base seems like it would be a bit woodsy. But with the added ingredients it’s creamy. If Santa drank tea this is probably what he would drink.

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.
