I don’t think I steeped this one long enough the first time. In the tin, it smells delicious so maybe when I steep it longer I’ll get more flavor out of it.

Not bad for a fruit tea though.

Got this in a sampler from Teaopia. It’s not bad overall, but it’s really just a slightly sweet green tea, nothing really special.

I’m done the tin now, but I suspect it may have made a pretty good iced tea. I won’t be buying it to test the theory.

I will say the bits of fig in the loose tea were tasty.

drank Amazing Vanilla by Teaopia

I really enjoyed this vanilla tea. In the tin, it’s got a great vanilla scent. Brewed, it’s got a great, light vanilla flavor complimented by the Rooibos tea. Definitely a favorite.

drank Creamed Earl Grey by Teaopia

I’m not normally a fan of Earl Gey but I do enjoy the Creamed Earl Grey.

It smells great in the tin and the creaminess softens the slightly bitter edge I find in black teas. I like it and will probably keep some on the shelf for my father in law, but for me, it’s not really a must drink.

drank Plum Oolong by Teaopia

This tea was my introduction to Oolong teas.

I’ve got a bit in a sample tin that I’m scared to use until I find out if I can get some more. Which doesn’t really make any sense because if I don’t drink it, it’s like I’m already out, right? Right.

I love how this tea smells.

I brewed it up last night for some iced tea and it’s got a pretty good flavor overall. Am I slightly disappointed that it doesn’t taste like an actual root beer float? Yeah, I am. But looking at it realistically, it’s tea.

And as a tea, it’s pretty darned tasty.

I am considering adding either whipped cream or root beer flavored vodka to it. Probably the whipped because it seemed to lack that super creamy flavor I expected.

I tried this partly because of the great reviews here. Chocolate, raspberry and almond? Sign. Me. Up.

When I open the tin, it smells like a raspberry truffle. Yum. Yet another tea I could just sit and smell all day long.

Once brewed, the taste lives up to the smell – so long as I use enough leaf.

This one will be staying on my shelf.

drank Wild Cherry by Teaopia

I waffle on this tea.

I really like passion tea from Tazo so I think that’s why this tea is ok to me – it’s full of hibiscus.

But, that’s also why I’m not always keen on the tea. It has an amazing cherry scent. I open the bag just to take a sniff once in awhile because it smells that good.

But I only brew it when I’m craving Passion tea because it has such a strong hibiscus flavor. I’ve tried brewing it for a shorter time. I’ve tried brewing it longer. Nothing seems to bring out the cherry more.

Maybe I should try it iced?

drank Mojito by Tetley

When it comes to bagged tea, I don’t have a lot anymore. This is one of the few you’ll still find on my shelf.

I like the mix of mint and lime. I find I like it better iced rather than hot.

I’ve always enjoyed tea. Lately, I’ve stepped away from the grocery store selection of bagged teas and found the world of loose leaf teas.
