I’m back!! I had quite the health scare last year and I think I’m on the other side of it all. Ready to jump back into life… & tea :). I’m going to try and limit my caffeine at least for awhile so will be looking for suggestions for good decaf/herbal/rooibos blends.

I’m drinking this one tonight because it’s one of the few herbals I have that I bought in the store one day after having bought a cup to try it. Of course they made it overly sweet and used lots of leaf so my cup tonight isn’t as flavorful. I don’t even know how much tea she used in the cup I bought, must have been double or even triple what I would consider normal for a cup.

This almost smells better than it tastes. Hubby walked past tonight and asked what I was making. He wasn’t sure what to make of the smell.. Didn’t make himthink tea. I said, “Smells like glazed roasted almonds at the mall?” Yep, that was it …!

It is sweet carmel almond with a bit of artificial something flavor. Pretty color, although in my timolino tonight I’m missing out on that. It’s not something I would reach for often, but if you want something sweet, it does the job. Not going to change my rating as this is good but not great.

Flavors: Almond, Caramel

1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

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!
