Having a sleepless night for some reason so I dug around and found this in the back of my herbal drawer. I’M A PRETTY BIG FAN OF CHAMOMILE and I really wouldn’t say there’s anything wrong with this one! Just good ol’ standard bagged chamomile. I think the Trader Joes brand is bit better though, more flavorful or something.

Milk, sugar, cinnamon and whipped cream is just the perfect combo with this tea I do say. I’m going to call this the TRIF-TREATMENT.
I actually tried to re-steep one and IT WORKED OUT WELL I just let it steep a big longer. I DON’T REALLY KNOW… WHY I DIDN’T TRY IT BEFORE. Wow that was dumb of me. AT LEAST NOW I KNOW!
Going back and forth between this and the Gyokuro SO DIFFERENT BUT BOTH SO DELICIOUS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT!
Gyokuro and Dragonwell have been my staple work teas lately. Sometimes it’s hard for me to decide what one I’m in the mood for… so I will just have both. At the same time. Two cups of tea on my desk, what a cool kid.
Added milk, sugar, cinnamon and WHIPPED CREAM this time.
GUYS… IT WAS AMAZING.
I only have one more of these left nooo! This is my favorite bagged jasmine green, I feel like the jasmine smell and flavor don’t overpower the green. IT’S A REALLY GOOD LATE NIGHT TEA for some reason.
Work tea! It was pretty good, reminded me of a more orange version of their pumpkin spice!
THIS ONE IS DEFINITELY GROWING ON ME the more I have it the more I seem to like it. Probably only have about one more cup left of it now, and I’m not sure if I like it enough to buy it, but definitely a good sweet dark oolong! —I ALMOST SAID BLACK TEA I actually tend to forget this is an oolong it doesn’t really taste like one at all.

More backlogging! I really want to expand my collection of earl greys because wow I have yet to try one I don’t like! As tasty as this one is though I still prefer Zen Tea’s earl grey cream the most… AND MY SAMPLE OF THAT IS ALMOST GONE! NOOO.
Wow earthy teas are definitely a thing with me I JUST LOVE THEM this is probably one of my favorite loose leaf oolongs I have right now YUM.
Late night tea, this is such a unique tasting and nice looking oolong~!
This very well may be the most delicious smelling tea I own.

Another work tea for today, one I shared with my coworker again. It’s too earthy for her, but earthy is what I really love about this stuff~ EARTHY AND SMOOTH!
This was my work tea yesterday, I shared some with my coworker as well and she commented on how great it smells too! I seriously would make potpourri out of this stuff.
I MADE THE MISTAKE OF NOT STEEPING THIS LONG ENOUGH… which is a rare problem for me usually I always forget about it until 10 minutes later. So it was kind of underwhelming this time. BUT I KNOW IT’S A GOOD TEA I’ll just remember to steep longer next time HAHA.
I GAVE THIS TEA ANOTHER TRY. The chocolate smell was very off-putting the first time I had it and I think I may have steeped it too long too, but this time around… NOT SO BAD! I like hazelnut and this has a lot of that. I think I’ll actually raise the rating on it now, it’s not bad at all!
So this tea re-steeps better than I expected it to! Though I guess I shouldn’t be surprised seeing as the flavor is so strong. STILL DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE TEAS!
One downside I will give this tea is that if I have a large glass of it and don’t steep it forever it’s almost TOO light. But usually if I have boiling water and I wait it out it’s poifect.
Having this tea has definitely inspired me to get more ASSAM TEAS wow what a lovely tea.
Still having trouble getting this one right AGH! I really love the taste either way but a true fusion of green and lemon grass is hard to achieve.
YOU KNOW, THIS WOULD GO REALLY WELL WITH CUPCAKES!
