I got this tea in “The Republic of Tea Experience Sampler Cube”. I rather like it! It has a smooth, lovely, creamy vanilla flavor with a beautiful aroma. After taking a sip and then breathing, it almost feels like I’ve gotten a whiff and slight taste of vanilla cake. I was expecting a bland ho-hum thin vanilla flavor, not the robust and well-balanced authentic flavor that it actually has. What a nice surprise! This is more like what I was expecting from the Double Dark Chocolate Mate that I also got from Republic of Tea… I wonder how a mix of the two would taste…? Alas, I only had one sample of the Good Hope. I will likely buy a tin of this in the future.

Wage slave, artist, crazy cat lady, and all-around slob.

A lifelong soda addict, I am in the process of changing my drinking habits from over a 2-liter bottle of sugary soda per day to maybe a can or two of Coke Zero and lots of tea per day instead. As such, I tend to enjoy teas that are naturally a bit sweet and not at all bitter, which (so far) means that I’ve had more luck with herbal and rooibos blends than with traditional black teas.

I’m trying different teas to expand my selection and knowledge, and I think that Steepster is going to be a great resource for me to keep up with what I’ve tried and what’s out there.
