Sample from VariaTEA…man i like this one. A little sweetner would make the flavours pop a little more i suspect but this really does feel like a cranberry soda…maybe a little more soda than cranberry but i am digging how this one comes across. Almost wish i’d cold brewed this to see how that worked out. :) thanks variatea!

This one does sound like it’s a winner.

mmmmm this is really nice. Sample from VariaTEA and it’s a tasty one. the chocolate/vanilla combo makes it just the right sort of chocolatey taste. I’d say this is pretty damn close to the real thing, at least as close as you can get in terms of a liquid emulating that squishy bite in to yum.

speaking of yum….Americans…your girl scout cookies are evil…in a good way.

gmathis

Agreed. Especially the coconut caramel things.

Sil, your tastebuds and mine are clearly on the same pattern today. Currently drinking Chocolate Delight. But doesn’t seem to be quite as good and what is in your cup.

Sil

gmathis – hells yes….trying to get my grubby hands on a box of smores this year since they’re new. So many i haven’t tried yet lol
evol – too funny!

Omg damn you 52teas. I’ve never tried Girl Scout cookies but perhaps it’s for the best.

Sample from VariaTEA this one is kind of meh for me. It’s more maple cream to me than anything…not really feeling the spiced rum.

Rum and chocolate in the same tea? Hot damn, I obviously need to make an order.

Sample from Evolvingness

I have to say that this is a pretty tasty black tea. I’m not quite sure i’m getting exactly mango…there are a few notes in this that remind me of peach teas, but it’s NOT peach. What it is though, is a lovely light, refreshing black tea. I think a little sweetner in this would really make the flavour pop. I’d also be interested in seeing how this brews cold. Nice cup for this late morning. :) thanks evol!

Evol Ving Ness

Delighted that you are enjoying this one, Sil. Interesting that the mango is not coming through for you because for me, it’s seriously mango, as in MANGO. :)

Trying to get in some tea today since i’m back from vacation and want to clear out a few of the samples i have. This wasn’t a sample but was a sipdown and a nice start to my day earlier. sorry to see this go but hopefully i can clear out my cupboard a bit and pick up a few more teas from Nicole since i’ve quite enjoyed them!

Evol Ving Ness

And I have too, of the ones that I’ve tried so far.

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.
