I made a bunch of this iced. It’s amazing! Just as good as it is hot, if not better. Sweet, refreshing, creamy, and the perfect mix of vegetal green tea and light fruitiness. Ideal summertime drink.

Having a mug of this in my Serenity Prayer mug. Because after the absolutely horrid day I had at work, I need it. And it’s much healthier than a beer.

I absolutely love this tea! The vanilla just gives the regular Sleepytime blend a more satisfying and soothing finish.

drank Vanilla Caramel by Lipton

These Lipton Pyramid teas are my guilty pleasure. This one is my favorite. The base is fairly astringent, but if you catch it early and ditch the teabag after one or two minutes, it’s actually a really tasty tea. The caramel and vanilla make it creamy and sweet.

Vanilla teas appear to be my weakness. Lol

Had this at a company event tonight, in lieu of coffee. It’s utterly unremarkable.

Bummer.

drank Nutty Almond Cream by Tiesta Tea

Cuddling on the couch with my dog, watching Big Bang Theory reruns, and drinking a nice mug of this tea. Absolutely perfect way to end a hectic day.

It’s creamy, apple-y, and has a nice cinnamon finish, which is rounded out by the almond slivers. It’s weird, because there is no actual tea in this tisane. But I can’t help loving it anyway.

drank citrus kiss by Good Earth

Yuck. Disgusting. I can only taste the stevia. It’s like drinking sugar water with a twist of something vaguely fruity.

PASS. If I want a Sprite, I’ll crack open a can of it. I don’t want my tea to taste like it.

This stuff was so vile I threw it out.

Thank God it wasn’t my cup! I had one sip from my boyfriend’s mug. That was enough. It’s pretty awful.

Finally got my hands on some of this! I’ve been meaning to try it for a long time now. Regular Sleepytime bores me these days. I think I’ve just drunk too much of it. This variation is immediately identifiable because the dry bags smell very strongly of spearmint and just a hint of vanilla, whereas regular Sleepytime bags just smell like chamomile.

Steeped, the tea smells wonderfully of sweet vanilla, chamomile, lemongrass, and spearmint. Sipped, I taste primarily the chamomile, but the vanilla is definitely there, albeit subtly. I’ve had two cups of this tonight. I am enjoying it thoroughly. I think I’ll only buy Vanilla Sleepytime and Sleepytime Extra from now on! No more boring old regular stuff.

Yup, definitely still love this. One of the best vanilla flavored teas I’ve experienced. And it’s a rooibos! Two ordinary flavors come together to become extraordinary. It’s simple, but perfect.

I can’t stress enough how much I love this tea! Lemongrass and green tea were a match made in heaven. The pomegranate almost gives it a cranberry flavor. I love it. Tiesta green blends are the bomb diggity.

I cold-steeped this one at work, and I found it to be even more refreshing than hot. The bergamot presents itself as a sweet and crisp orangey note, and the more earthy and chocolatey notes from the base that I get when it’s been brewed hot are replaced by it. Perfect way to brew this tea for the summer.

Bio

Hello! I love literature, politics, and tea. I work in the Information Technology field and am currently working toward an MA in English.

Favorites: Black, oolong, and rooibos. Blends that are vanilla, chocolate, nutty, or dessert-like are especially appealing to me. I also love ginger, citrus, and lemongrass.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base and be heavy on the cinnamon and light on the nutmeg. Also iffy about mate and herbal teas in general, although chamomile and I are usually on speaking terms.

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
