This was a fun tea. The raspberry still got to me a little but i love the balance of sweet and spicy here. Largely cherry with more aroma of raspberry and then the spicy kick. Nothing like Kaphaa but just enough to really highlight the sweet. Thanks VariaTea!

Helena

mmm..cherry. Sounds like a good tea to try. I remember seeing it and thinking about it. Of course it will have to wait until I drink my current tea stash down to make room.

drank Campfire Strawberry by A Quarter to Tea

Oooh! i quite like this one. It’s not too smokey but it’s smokey enough to have the strawberry cut through it and bring a delicious sweetness to it. I think i may need to look at getting more of this one. I’m also really loving the strawberry flavour!

this one sounded really interesting to me. So thanks for the share VariaTea. I am thoroughly enjoying this one. cranberry sweet/tart with that basil coming through. I couldn’t drink a lot of this but i think this one is pretty well done and i’m glad to have tried it!

I just realized I still haven’t tried this. I guess I should before placing the order

Another one that i’m super happy i got to try before buying as i probably would have purchased this one. I need to remember that i don’t love on raspberry teas. This has got a fantastic creamcheese flavour to it but i’m not getting coconut. I’m also not a huge fan of the raspberry flavour – it’s a little artificial feeling to me. Glad to try this though.

Thanks again for all the samples VariaTEA! This one is really quite good, especially if you like a good stout. haha. In my head i was expecting a little more chocolate but as i was drinking this, the flavour sort of built, like on the rare occasion i drink beer. Now i need to decide if i need more of this as it is quite unique and tasty.

VariaTEA

Haha I am in the same boat where I am debating if I want more of this or not.

VariaTea had this one right. The dry tea for this one smells amazing…the berry lemonade is just noms. Brewed, this is a really nice, light cucumber berry tea. the lemonade aspect is pretty muted. I don’t know that i need this in my cupboard but it would make a really nice cold brewed tea i think (or hot and then cooled with a tiny splash of sugar).

Nope. While this one sounds great in theory…i am still not really in a peach mood yet. What i get from this is sort of a mish mash muted vanilla, peachy drink with a hint of blueberry. In otherwords not what i want. I’d totally go for this if is was more blueberry vanilla with a hint of peach haha. Still really glad to try it and enjoyed my cup well enough.

Going to be a bunch of samples from VariaTea today. I had this one yesterday because i need to try and get through a bunch of samples asp so that we can place an order. I figured this one was a safe one for work travel mug and i was right. Also… NOMS. Even though i always want more banana in banana teas…this one doesn’t NEED more banana. i could have more banana but honestly, not necessary. As it cooled it took on more of the praline note but was still enjoyable :)

Tea from yesterday – didn’t get much drinking on since we cancelled date night to go help a friend move. blaah! They needed the help, so happy to do so but i’d been looking forward to date night. Oh well…maybe i can convince the other half to play some games today instead :)

only one more cups worth of this i think. I’ll enjoy it and might think about getting more of this in the fall. It’s a nicely balanced apple oolong + caramel

Helena

oooh sounds really yummy! I have never tried teas from there before either so it would be a new place to try as well.

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.
