I really like the idea of dragon pearls and I really want to love them so that when I travel I can just pack a few little balls of tea and call life good, but this tea just hits me a little wrong. I get the mellow bready goodness, but then the end of the sip is followed by something that I would describe as tar. This was an enjoyable cup today, but not something I would purchase for myself again. ( Sipdown )

This was a sample I received a while back. This was one heck of a pick me up cup. I don’t usually react to caffeine overdose, but man oh man were my hands shaking this morning after this bad boy. It was an astringent, strong cup. Being that I like these strong brews I found this very enjoyable for my morning cup. This cup reminded me of Big Red Sun. ( Sipdown )

I believe this is a sample I received from Kiwi in a Christmas swap 2 years ago. A very delayed Thank you! I love mint teas. This was no exception. Mostly I just really love mint. I drink a lot HS Mint Verbena before bed and this was good as well. It was simple and to the point. It made me think I should look into Moroccan Mint teas again. ( Sipdown )

I picked this up with my recent HS order knowing that it wasn’t the perfect chai, but workable. It is decent enough. It is definitely a tea that requires some doctoring. I do like the mix of spices in here. Tonight I am drinking this with a splash of pumpkin spiced eggnog. Num num num.

You can track tastings without having to write anything in the note box if that’s what you’re trying to do, just hit review and then save it

Thank you Sil. I didn’t realize you could do this without a message.

Sil

NP! Figured that might be what you were trying to do :) It’ll show up in your tealog, but without text, no one else will see your note. I do that often, especially if i want to track things but don’t have anything fun to say. Glad i could help!

Sipdown. This is a decent tea. I am not sure I would purposely purchase it again. It is a strong minty black tea. It might be better with a bit of sugar and milk. The tea base was a tad too astringent for the additional flavoring.

It was an okay cup. Not something I would purchase again. H&S has other blends that I prefer more.

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
