I saw a post on Facebook for this tea recently witch a special offer of like 80% off So I had to check it out while it was on sale I got 2 of them :)
I’m really glad i got 2 because this stuff is really really good, one of the best Caramel flavored things that I’ve had.
I made this one our Usual way for doing Matcha here at our house, with cold milk and a little sugar and I also tried it hot the way matcha suppose to be made so i can try it both ways.
It as Delicious both ways, I really enjoyed it.
The aroma of this Caramel Matcha reminded me of Whiskey actually, read why on my Blog post :)

I’d really rather make No Review at all before I make a Bad Review BUT in this case I really had to, there is something horribly wrong with this tea to me :(
This tea seriously makes me stomach hurt, I’ve tried it on 3 different occasions and I decided to try it again this morning but NO Good :(
I have honestly never had a tea that made me belly hurt like this after drinking so very little of it, tho I have drank teas that have made me feel bad, this one really hurts I can’t even change to something else because my belly is upside down.
Tastes like a Yunnan Black but really taste all goes out the window when your belly starts hurting.
It makes me sad too because I ordered a few teas from Silk Road Teas(4) and honestly only 1 out of 4 was even worth drinking and that was only when it was Iced.

Very Disappointed with Silk Road Teas :(

I get like that with oolongs. I’m finding a few that I don’t react to, but for the most part? I get violently ill within minutes.

Oh MY, This is Good!
I’m not sure why I haven’t tried this one sooner I know I’ve seen it on the site before, I will not overlook it again.
Ok so I don’t know what to say because I read all the other reviews on this one and I think they cover it pretty well :)
This tea is just as the others say it is Orangey Chocolatey Creamy goodness in a cup, It taste like Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange and Creamsicle at the same time.
I see folks mention Christmas and Halloween, This one makes me think of Both at once lol Taste like Halloween but brings memories of Christmases and of my Aunt Judy, how she would slam those Chocolate Orange Candies on the tabletop at Christmastime to break the pieces apart.
Wonderful Chocolate Orange Tea, maybe even the best :)

Flavors: Chocolate, Cream, Orange Zest

These Woodland mugs are great, I use mine everyday.
This mug is the perfect size to use with Whispering Pines “Infuser set with dish” and they feel really comfy in your hands when filled with your favorite hot tea.
Lance and I both have one of these little guys(Lance keeps his at work) they are the perfect size for a nice cup of tea and they look cool too.
Only 22 of them made so if you love Whispering Pines Teas You best go and order ya one before they are gone, you’ll love it.

I thought I had some kind of allergic type reaction to hibiscus But I’ve been drinking teas with it here lately and it hasn’t seemed to bother me, weird, Anyways……This one is not very tasty, Don’t taste much Vanilla and it’s way too tangy and tart and kinda sour, this just tastes like a really strange fruit tea, It don’t even taste like a specific fruit just some weird tangy sour fruit. Not very enjoyable as a warm tea to me, Maybe it would be better cold but I’ll never know that cuz i’m done with it after just half a cup.
Not My Cup Of Tea :)

This is an Awesome Lapsang!
It has changed some since the last time I posted here :)
Wonderful smoke flavor with mesquite hints, a slightly sweet note and absolutely smooth with no bitter or astringent at all.
Super nice one the Best Lapsang that we’ve had (we’ve had lots)
Great morning, afternoon or anytime slow sipping tea :)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec
Ysaurella

seems lovely. I need to develop maybe more my palate to really appreciate lapsang souchong but now I can already drink smoked teas…I may be on the way :)
