I’ve had this before. Going through my stash of samples and this one smelled good.. and a plus side, it’s a sipdown. Shortly after I arrived here on Steepster MissB was so generous to send me samples to try… This was one of them. I have so much trouble drinking the last cup of something that I think I like when I know I won’t likely reorder soon.

I remember enjoying this one, but didn’t have refined tea taste buds when I first tried it. I have to say it tastes very different to me now. I didn’t taste the complexities of it before. I get bergamot, and orange peel mostly (of which the orange peel comes as a kind of bitterness at the end of the sip), maybe a bit of vanilla, and if I really think about it, maybe some nutty dryness at the end of the sip. As I near the end of the cup I get more nutty flavor, and maybe that caramel, maybe. Kind of strange to get both bergamot and orange peel in the same cup and being able to detect them both. Trying to decide if they compete with each other.. Hmm..

I think

Flavors: Bergamot, Caramel, Nutty, Orange Zest, Vanilla

37 yr old wife and mother who left her day job to take care of our son. Now running a property management business with my hubby.

I grew up on Lipton -hot w/milk & sugar, Lipton iced w/fresh spearmint and sugar, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime … Don’t criticize.

I came across Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy out of chance and it spurred my interested in trying new teas because it was a flavor I had never had before in a tea. I’m now new to the world of loose leaf teas and looking forward to learning what I like as I journey through some new flavors. Hubby has always enjoyed the occasional cup when we’ve been out and about at restaurants.. now we will find out what good teas are really all about! On with the adventures!

Still relatively new to loose leaf, but I’m learning… Coconut, cinnamon, chai, chocolate, mint, & pineapple are just a few of the flavors I enjoy. I have found that I can do green teas so long as there are other flavors as well and it isn’t the primary flavor. I have only found 1 rooibos blend that was too woodsy for me, most of the time the base is hidden or blends well enough w/flavored versions for my liking. I’m beginning to enjoy fruit teas more and more. I occasionally like a straight black tea.

Hubby likes milder flavors, any base, berry flavors, sweet aromas, sometimes tart, and or floral, and chocolate to my surprise! Almost the opposite of me.. go figure!

My 8 year old just took interest and loves root beer.. so far Butterbeer is a hit, but we haven’t tried any root beer or cola teas yet.. soon thanks to the Marvelous MissB for sending some samples. He enjoyed Winter Nog (Della Terra) recently, but turned away something else I gave him.. darn if I can’t remember now what it was!
