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.

1 tsp

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.

Monthly TTB. I always find these champagne named teas to be a little interesting. I’m not a huge fan of champagne but from the ones I’ve had this one is probably the best yet. It has that brutish taste without the alcohol sting. The strawberry is there but it’s very mild. surprisingly I’m not tasting much of the green tea. Kinda a weak base or something….

drank Peach Melba by Lupicia

Thank you Lupicia for the free sample. I’m not a big fan of Red rooibos. It always gives me a funny sensation in my throat that makes me wonder if I’m allergic or something. Anyway, did you know that peach melba is a dessert? Go look it up. Sounds pretty good. I’m tempted to mix this with a raspberry tea to get that flavor. Without the raspberry it’s still close to what I’m assuming that would taste like. The peaches and cream flavor is great. I’m tempted to try almond milk but I don’t want to ruin it.

And I’m sorry but who has ever put marshmallow topping on their tea? No. Probably…. maybe. Maythe Japanese. Could make a really cute milk tea drink with burnt marshmallow toppings..

drank Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas

I’m not really a fan of rainbow sherbet because I’m not a fan of fake lime flavor. I’m surprised though that this tastes so much like the name. But the lime flavor really doesn’t do it for me….

A basic matcha. There are no ingredients listed and I didn’t see it on their website. I’m not sure if there is any sugar but I don’t think so. I heated 1 oz of water. Mixed in the matcha and then added almond milk.

1 tsp

I never sleep well before early morning shows. If I have to set an alarm I just don’t get sleep because I’m afraid it won’t go off. But I did this to myself. I asked for the early morning reserve so that I could walk with my dad to his gate. He arrived early as well cause he had trouble sleeping. I think it happens to everyone. We went to get scones and tea/coffee. I picked this one. My tongue is a lil burnt from trying to try the tea while it was still too hot. But it doesn’t take away from the good grassy flavor this tea has. It’s a calming tea. I must admit though that it is still not quite as good as it could be. The after taste is not what I usually like in a green tea.

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.
