Holy hannibel this is sweet. I think it’s the marshmallows and the sugar – ie, i would be happy with one or the other :) it may also be the cinnamon as well…giving that sense of sweet. It’s not bad, but i’d like to try this again with a shorter steep :)

Besides the cinnamon does it have any heat? Always liked the idea of spicy cocoa and this kind of blend looks neat! :)

Sadly not really, it might be the sample I had but it was mostly sweet, cinnamon, chocolate vs being spicy

Another sample from VariaTEA – this one isn’t bad. Im’ a little sick of chocolate mint these days, so that probably explains why i don’t LOVE this…but it’s not a bad mint chocolate tea. There is a creaminess here that it pretty tasty as a whole. glad to try these out but i’m worried it may prompt an order heh

VariaTEA

No need to order when I still have lots to share. Just saying :P

Sil

I feel bad about taking all your teas!

VariaTEA

I have more than I could drink alone. Don’t feel bad :)

Sample from VariaTEA. I figure i need to keep working on these samples since my cupboard weight is at least trending in the right direction and there’s a whole month left! Of course trying these samples may make me want to place an order lol I didn’t have any rice kernels in my sample that i noticed, so this was more of a marshmallow black, but man this was pretty krispie treat like in terms of the goey marshmallow flavour. i’d pick this up again… heh

VariaTEA

I’ll pack another sample and make sure it has rice in it

Sil

It’s still delicoous, regardless :)

Struggling today. Ever since we got back from vacation, my other half has been coming home late as he tries to catch up with the apparent shit show that happened at work while he was away. As a result i haven’t slept well all week since i often can’t sleep until i know he’s home/close to home. I am still enjoying this one..for me it’s one of those every day sort of, don’t have to think about it teas. I don’t need to buy this again, but it’s good enough for every day while i still have it :)

Another sample from VariaTEA. I don’t really get smokey from this one. Mildly spicey…i guess (but i’m a spice wimp and this is REALLY mild) but mostly that sort of generic pumpkin flavour. To me this isn’t anything special – i prefer my pumpkin ginger tea.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
