Hot with milk. Surprisingly good with hot dogs.

I found the last two teabags from the Charleston Tea Plantation that my friend gave me about a year ago. I thought I had finished them already, so I was pleasantly surprised to find them.

At first, I didn’t think I would like the raspberry. Sure, I like how they taste and it smelled nice, but I remembered the Peach Tea from the plantation. I made it hot and plain. I was a little underwhelmed at first sip. It was light, but it didn’t taste bad. I could barely taste the fruit. It didn’t have the “wow, this is fruity” punch that I was expecting. By the time I reached the end of the cup, I had decided that this would be a good tea to have for tea parties with people you like. A social tea.

I think that the raspberry would have been brought out more with a little honey. I could see this being an interesting iced tea too. But, I don’t think I would drink it again.

Meg, appreciate your review of the Rockville Raspberry, we’d agree that the flavor profile could be heightened with the addition of a little sweetener such as honey…if you wish not to try this particular flavor again, please call us to perhaps try an alternate flavor at 1-888-244-3569

I was wondering why my English Breakfast has been tasting a little weak recently. It turns out that mom kept slipping in boxes of decaf on me. I think she might be worried that I’m drinking too much tea. I don’t have that much a day.

Anyway, hot with a drop of milk. Still yummy, just been a little blah.

Hot with a drop of Silk Vanilla Soy.

I have been drinking this fairly often because mom picked this box up for me the last time she went tea shopping. As a plain, hot cup it is pretty good. A little bland, but it is pretty good anyway. It mixes really well with other things.

Normally, I drink my green tea plain, but I have 40 bags to go through and there are only so many ways that you can drink a hot and plain cup without it getting boring. The Vanilla Silk does not overwhelm the cup. It makes it very creamy and gives it a hint of sweetness. Makes for a very nice after dinner cup.

This is my last cup of this tea. I have to admit that it has grown on me. I wish there was more of a vanilla flavor and some more spice, but it is a pretty good sweet tea. If I had it in the winter, it might beat out hot chocolate as my drink of choice because I do drink this one sweet.

We’re happy that you’ve enjoyed the Vanilla Chai…..and will certainly share your comments with our research & development team concerning your thoughts on boosting the vanilla flavor, with a little bit more spice.

When you need comfort, it is easy to turn to a faithful cup of tea. Hot with milk and a little on the strong side.

I’ve been drinking this tea down. It is a good afternoon tea and has replaced my Earl Grey love for now, but I don’t think I would get it again. I gave a cup to my brother and he liked it. I think the verdict on this one is once it is gone, it is gone.

I got this tea today when I was out shopping with mom. I wanted something different and the only chai tea I have ever had was the Oregon Trail mix. I made what they call the “quick version” and added sugar and milk.

It tastes good to me right now. I could have made it a bit stronger. I think it will taste better if I actually heated up water in the kettle instead of in the microwave. And possibly brewed it longer. I have a whole box to try, so I will experiment. Not rating it right now. I’ll figure out how I like it first, then rate.

Nothing tastes better at the end of the day than a reliable cup of tea with milk.

Bio

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
