This is my second new tea, I love mint & chocolate, however it’s almost always in a caffeinated tea. So I was really glad to see this one.

However this was kind of just a blah tea. The rooibos takes the lead & the mint & chocolate take a major backseat & hardly come through.

Rooibos kills most other flavours for me. Sorry it did that for you with this one.

Soooo many new teas to choose from in my order that arrived this morning.

I’m not sure why I chose to try this one first, when what I have really been waiting for is Malt Shop.

This is really freakin good. Creamy & stawberry-ie, it’s better when it’s still quite hot, I find the flavours come out more. I’m not getting much chocolate, most of it is at the end of the sip.

This is definetly ice cream in a cup, melted & warmed deliciousness. YUM!

I really forgot how much a half ounce of tea is, I’m gonna be at this forever! 19 new teas to try.

You know how just when you think a tea can’t get any better? Then it does?

Yea well this is one of those. I have a feeling I will be through my 2oz in no time & will need more, MORE, MORE, MORE!!

gah it’s so good. Quite different this time, more of a light floral note, still earthy, light & so freakin good!

Thanks Brenden (I have to say I am impressed that your name is spelt this way, my brother’s is the same & you rarely see it spelt like this), for this amazing blend!!

I’m really surprised this hasn’t been reviewed yet.

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this tea yet. I need some time to sit with another mug of it.
It definetly remind me of camping (ok so 90% of Whispering Pines teas remind me of camping & I can’t tell you how much I LOVE that!), both in smell & taste. It’s earthy, almost hay like & a bit berry-ie.
The colour it steeps up is so strange. I had it in a white mug & the tea touching the edges of the mug was a yellow-ish/green & the centre was an almost grey/green colour.

I feel like I should be drinking this in a sauna or by a fire.

Alright so once this steeped up I was really worried about it because it smelt so much like coffee.

I dove in sitting at work, slacking. Errr my fear is realized it tastes so much like coffee. I’m sure there is some chocolate linering at the end of the sip, but I can’t get past the coffee taste.

I’m sure this is a great tea, if you like coffee. I just can’t get behind this one.

I won a sample of this a while back from their facebook page.
the first time I had this (which I forgot to log), I really really didn’t like it.

this time around is much better. I really dislike the smell of this tea once it’s steeped, smells way too rooibos & something else off putting.
the taste is mostly citrus, I’m not getting the other individual flavours, but somehow they all work together to create something pretty good.

I received this in a swap a while back, not entirely sure from who, and finally got around to a pot if it. I needed tea & can only drink herbals at this hour. it’s been raining all day, I’m super blah, tired & irritated, thus I need tea.

I really expected to hate this tea. I don’t hate it, but I also don’t love it. considering this has lavender I really enjoy it way more than I expected. I get mostly lavender with a touch of creamy coconut. this would be a really nice bedtime tea.

I’ll finish what i have, but probably wouldn’t buy it. as a side note, my daughter really seemed to enjoy it.

This is the fifth tea from the ones my cousin picked up for me. I didn’t do my note for the fourth yet.

This tea reminds me of camping, both in the scent & taste. I don’t know if its psychological, because of the name, all the berries. I don’t know. It even smells/tastes like pine.

Ugh this is so delicious & is making me long for camping, late night fires, saunas, berry picking. Too good for words.

I just made some of this to stick in mason jars in the fridge. It is also fantastic cold!

MissLena

You’re making me long for camping :( lol

I haven’t had this one before but your description makes me think of Finland. :)

Number 3 from the pile my cousin picked up.
Another go at an unflavoured oolong. Tung ting failed me when I bought 50g, but was great in the sample I got.

The dry notes smell delicious, milky & sweet with a hint of orchid. I am not a fan of floral teas, but maybe every other aspect will come out.

I used two perfect teaspoons instead of my usual 3. So far so good! Creamy & milky with just a slight lingering orchid taste.
Really enjoying this so far.

You usually use 3 teaspoons?! :O

tattooed_tea

Haha yes! I like my tea flavourful & strong.
I know It’s a tea crime & I never do a second steep.
