Monthly TTB. I keep forgetting to add that. It gets hard to remember when I’m drinking a cuppa and feeding my daughter at the same time while trying to write a note. And she likes to try and grab my phone with her food covered fingers.

Anyway. The smell of the dry leaves reminds me of an apple pie you get in a grocery store and not a homemade pie. Or at least not the pies my mom or I make. Dark amber color. Not the best apple pie tea I’ve had (I think Indigo is better). It’s light but still has good flavor. Just not the pie flavor I think of when thinking of apple pie. I’m not a fan of store bought pies so that’s probably why I’m not a big fan of this tea.

drank Chai Love by Tiesta Tea

I need a lil something to put a lil bounce back into my step before going to work. This is a good one to do it with. I probably should have let it steep longer then 3 minutes but it still came out nicely. Just a little light on flavor. If steeped for around 4 – 5 minutes, probably 5, I could see this chair being really nice. There is a nice spiciness to it that I find a good chai should have.

Creamy, with a splash of peppermint. Light on the lavender. In fact I can’t really taste that much lavender at all. Which is surprising because it can be a very over powering flavor. I’ve put a few lavender buds by themselves into the pot to see if that does anything.

A song later…

It added a bit of lavender flavor. But not quite as much as I was hoping. The creaminess probably comes from the vanilla which accents this tea very nicely. I’m trying to tell what the base is for this tea but I’m really bad at guessing black bases.

Flavors: Cream, Peppermint, Vanilla

Anyone else here want to try this with Frangelico? As tempted as I am I also kinda think Frangelico would just overpower the tea. The tea itself is not amazing but itvreally does have a nice after taste. Almost kinda reminds me of chocolate silk pie. Actually I’m uping my rating. I’m amazed at how well the base blends. Pretty sure it’s a woodsy base but it’s hard to tell. The main flavor though I don’t find to be anything special. It’s thw after taste that I’m really loving.

Well I can’t compare this to the real thing because I’ve never had it but if it tastes anything like this I am sure it is good. Cream, banana, slight chocolate, and a woodsy base. Though honestly, I think it’s better when its luke warm. It’s fine hot I just think the flavors come out a lot better as it cools off. In fact the more I drink this the more I think about frozen chocolate covered bananas. Nummy.

Flavors: banana, Cacao, Cream

drank Cream by Adagio Teas

Cream is quite a name for a tea. Simple but so easy to mess up. I can definitely taste it, the cream flavor, but I’m also picking up maple syrup (the pure kind not that nasty fake crap). The base is quite woodsy. Kinda twiggy. Twiggy being branches, twigs.

Coconut in tea can be hit or miss. Sometimes it can taste too artificial and mess with the rest of the tea. This tea has a nice woodsy base that lingers long after the coconut. The coconut flavoring is ok but I feel like it’s just not as good as other coconut black teas i’ve had. This is from the Monthly TTB.

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.
