soooo i think i have more of this coming my way via 221….this sample though was from cavocorax and let me tell you..NOT.A.FAN. those who know me, know that i like a little smoke in my tea. This for sure has this, but outside of that, this was like a soapy weird gross smokey tea. There was no graham taste..or marshmallow or chocolate…just smoke that was REALLY nice…followed by soap. blech. if 221 does send me more, i’m hoping that it will be a bit tastier, or that i can coax a little more out of it…

Lol, I hate smoke, and somehow, I really like it :-) lol, I was at a bonfire the night I drank it, maybe I was just swallowing real smoke along with it!

i love it in teas and when camping… as long as it’s coming from a fire and not cigarettes lol

i tried the last of this one as a cold brew this week as well….it’s a bit less woodsy for me, but still nothing to write home about. However, really happy to try another pear tea offering, so thank you a bunch variatea

That’s so weird because I tasted rooibos more in the cold brew.

thanks for sending this one my way variatea I pulled this one out the other night when i read roswell’s tasting note. sadly, for me this tasted too much like rooibos – the woodsy type i don’t like. When i DID get a mouthful of that delicious pear taste it was heaven! but every other sip was pear+ woodsy rooibos. so, not a fan over all :( but soo close to being a fantastic pear tea.

I wanted an herbal tea the other night and dug this one out of the teas cavorcorax sent my way…i want more. THis is a great tea with (as always) not enough ginger, but enough to make me happy. I am a fan! The rooibos isn’t overly present – so none of that weird woodsy taste…just delicioud, warming, ginger snap like taste. yum!

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.
