This is pretty good, although not as yummy as the “Sun Tea” version (Orange Red Carrot). It’s a nice medley of fruit and spice, although both flavors are muted. Worth a try since it’s herbal/green rooibos (my fave for its sweetness). I wonder what this would taste like with a dash of cinnamon/cinnamon tea…

No rating as this is my own blend from Adagio.

I really do enjoy this cup of cherries, chocolate and cream – with no fat! I do add sweetener as I find some of Adagio’s teas are too astringent. If anyone wants a sample, PM me. :) I like to keep my stock rotating so I can buy more!

I can just tell it’s gonna be one of those days…so I’m starting out right, with a cup of this abfab chai. Please see other tasting notes; this is a fave! :)

This one is easily my fave of 52Teas. I love the combo of maple syrup and butter – pancakes without the calories! Since I let this steep for the length of the cup, second infusions don’t go too well. But if you steeped for just a few minutes you could probably reuse the leaves.

I never got to try the Strawberry Pancake one…waiting patiently for a blueberry or chocolate chip version… (hint hint, wink wink)

mm blueberry pancake would be the perfect combo!

Started my AM off with this cuppa. I really enjoy this one iced as well (although today the cuppa was hot). The coconut flavor is strong, but not overpowering; there’s just enough tropical spirit to get you in the mood for a vacation!

No rating as this is one of my own blends.

I added less jasmine pearls and more natural flavors with my recent batch.

It’s a great afternoon tea, especially iced. :)

As this was a blend for my b-day week, I had to give it a shot. Frank, please consider adding this one to your permanent collection too! I love this bright-eyed cuppa! Citrus and lemon flavors mix wonderfully with a light-tasting yerba mate and guayusa blend that just rocks!

Can’t wait to try this one iced! If I have any left, that is… Oh, and I let it steep for the length of the cup, which means the last few sips were super-charged and super citrus-y – which I love.

Frank, this one is a gem. Delish!

I completely forgot about these selections from Rishi. Major Tea Fail over here, I know.

The dry leaves smell like bright floral – like flowers in a summer garden. First steep and the liquor is a gorgeous golden brown, looks very luxe. First sip and I taste the soft peach and bright floral flavors. It’s quite the sipdown! Second steep, same flavors, same crispy flavor. This one’s a winner, guys!

Nice review short and sweet. Why don’t I read more reviews of Rishi Tea? Ah well. I have a sick sense of humor today…first flush makes me think of the…loo

Another cuppa this fave. It’s great in the fall, but I’m enjoying it more and more iced. Absolutely delightful. Spicy and sexy in a way…

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
