okay this is pretty awesome. sweet, fruity, a bit of a pinch/bite to it. i steeped it hot but i definitely think this is one i need to try chilled too. this 25g bag needs to last long enough for me to do it!

drank Iced Passion Tea by Tazo

I’ve been drinking a lot of these while sick because I needed something flavourful I could actually taste — even orange pekoe at its strongest without cream or sugar tasted like slightly flavoured water. I think it’s the tartness of this tea that actually hits my tastebuds amidst the nine layers of cough syrup and mucus. (Sorry for TMI).

Thankfully, I am now beginning the road to recovery — although I’ve actually pulled a muscle in my abdomen from coughing for a week solid and one of my lymph nodes still feels quite swollen. I hope it’s not strep. Ughhhhh.

Kittenna

Ahhhhh, brutal! Pulling muscles from coughing is the worst! Glad you are improving though!

So I’ve had a hardcore flu since Sunday morning. I’m so miserable right now, omg. Even tea isn’t soothing my throat because I’ve coughed it raw kfhaksdf. I’ve taken to just holding the warm mug against my throat ahahah.

If I die, I love you all tons and I bequeath my tea collection to you.

Cavocorax

Aww. That’s about the saddest thing. I hope you start feeling better soon. Lemon or licorice tea don’t help? :(

Kittenna

Oh no! That sounds terrible! :( Hope you’re starting to recover by now!

True story — I’ve gotten most of the people who work at my branch hooked on teas. Or rather, re-interested in them. Today a coworker brought in some tea that her hubby had bought for her for us to try. It was CT’s Black Cherry and when I sniffed it smelled exactly like those sore throat/cough teas I drink when I’m under the weather. It smelled comforting and familiar, and when I tasted it, I loved the tartness and the berry added as well. And no medicinal aftertaste, hahaha!

Me, yesterday to the girls on the member services side: “First I got you all hooked on Doctor Who, now I’m getting you all hooked on tea. Basically, I’m turning you British.”

This doesn’t smell or taste anything like nuts, but rather like apple crumble. I loooove it, and I hate most herbal teas. Might need to pick up a bag of this!

First steep: No cream or sugar. Sweet with a hint of tartness. I don’t taste the EG much in this at all?
Second steep: One sugar, one cream. Also steeped for longer since I wasn’t sure how much it had been weakened. Even better! Definitely a favourite.

Em sent me a bit of this to try and I’m enjoying it while I watch the Doctor Who Christmas special! This is a really nice tea with a sweet caramel-y flavour. It’s pouring rain outside and this just makes me feel all warm and cozy inside. _

Cavocorax

Doctor Who Special! I really need to catch up. :O

Valerie

Man it’s depressing. Poor Doctor. :(

Shmiracles

I’m at the movies now but I’m gonna go home and WATCH THE DOCTOR AND DRINK THIS TEA right after its done and I’m excited. Love this tea!!!

Not one of the better teas in the variety pack I got — it’s a standard breakfast blend, inoffensive and easy to drink even without cream and sugar. Nothing special but not unpleasant.

I really liked this tea — it was great hot but even better once it cooled — I think it would make an awesome iced tea. :D

Cavocorax sent me a sample of this to try :D I was hoping to compare it to DT’s Chocolate Orange pu’erh which I hadn’t enjoyed at all because of the earthy/fishy taste. :S

Steeped 5 minutes and tried it unsweetened. I taste a lot of orange but not so much the chocolate. It’s still really nice though, although a bit weak? I wouldn’t want to add cream to this because then it would taste like nothing, but I do like it. :D

Too bad this one didn’t work out for you, but that’s how I felt too. I was hoping to blame my travel mug…

Valerie

It’s still nice! It’s just not very strong! Maybe it’s just a combination that doesn’t work as well in tea!

Kittenna

Try a longer infusion? I forgot about this one while brewing it, so it probably got 6-7 mins, and I was impressed! Also, perhaps be sure not to underleaf. If anything, overleaf a little (2 tsp per 8 oz).

Valerie

Ooo, thanks for the advice! I will try again tomorrow. :D

Cavocorax

Thanks! I’ll have to do the same!
