Predominant notes of lavender, sweet honey, and a hint of coconut. I was surprised to find myself nodding off after drinking a mug of this tea.

I just finished a bag of Ginger & Tumeric. A bit of a lingering sweetness on the finish, but I did enjoy this tea for its stomach soothing properties.

drank Lemon Sorbetti by Tea Forte
65 tasting notes

I go to Bliss Spa in DC frequently and they serve Tea Forte in their relaxation lounge. I have tried the company’s fancier-packaged teas, however, this one is a plain paper tea bag. I agree with a previous reviewer; this tea is a good introduction to green teas if you typically dislike them. You can taste the sencha, but the lemon is more prominent. It doesn’t clash with the tea. I felt like it tasted like green tea with a squeeze of lemon juice, versus citrus zest. I probably would not purchase this for myself.

Tried this the other day as recommended by the description: Viet-style, with condensed milk. I didn’t have it iced, though. Interesting blend of flavors. It doesn’t pack a sugar-rush whammy like Vietnamese iced coffee with milk (ca phe sua da) but it wasn’t bad, either. It was the last of my stash, so unfortunately, I won’t be able to continue my experiment further.

drank Black Forest Berry by Honest Tea

This is a review for the iced tea version. At $0.99/bottle on sale, how could I resist? Honest Tea is the company that turned me to lightly sweetened ice teas, so they have a soft place in my heart. This one tastes a bit odd, like you can almost taste the blackberry and raspberry powder. If you are looking for a loose-leaf tea, I would recommend DavidsTEA’s “Bear Trap” over this one.

Preparation
Iced

You know what makes this tea awesome? The fact that there’s a picture of an over-caffeinated lemur on the package. That in itself is almost worth the purchase. As far as tea goes, this falls along the same vein as Celestial Seasonings. Not the best quality but it has its place. This is especially good if you doctor it up with milk and sugar. I have also used it to make vanilla tea-infused granola multiple times, so it gets extra points for that. It’s finely milled, so you don’t have to put it through the spice grinder.

I love chai and being Vietnamese, I love me some Saigon cinnamon. I’ve had this iced, hot with honey, and also almond milk/honey. I do enjoy drinking this tea, but I don’t love it. It’s a nice cinnamon-flavored tea. I prefer my chai to have more of a “punch you in the tastebuds” impact, so unfortunately, this didn’t make the cut. Will not repurchase, but it does smell oh-so-lovely in the bag.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

Has it been so long since I’ve reviewed any tea? We visited Davids Tea while in New York. The description of this tea is right up my alley, but oddly enough, it was my boyfriend who purchased it (He That Shuns All Sugar). Now I wish I purchased some for my own personal stash. It shimmers so prettily in the cup, you don’t have to add any sweetener, and just a touch of milk does soften it a bit. If the golden bits were pink, it’d be the Hello Kitty of teas. Delicious!
