So… I love white tea. Especially the straight whites that taste like nectarine stones, with a hint of honey.

Yes, this is that kind of tea. Oh my goodness, yes!

While it isn’t as full-bodied as some of the higher-end whites I’ve had, it was darn good. I’ll savor the rest of what I was sent, and could happily keep this in my tea cupboard if I could get my hands on more easily. (I can’t, it came from Australia as a sample so that I’d review it).

Look for it soon on my IG account! http://instagram.com/teatravelninja.com/

Ha! Sil, I’ll happily give you the rest of what I have. I’m not pulling what I want out of this one, or the Candy Bar tea. Perhaps you can work your magic.

Oooh, this is some tasty chai! Mind you, I did add a whack of cayenne, only because I’m fighting off some sort of nasty throat thing, so that may have tainted the tea. Somewhat.

I could easily drink this alllll day.

Three times isn’t a charm for this tea, sadly.

I’ve tried. Oh, I’ve tried. I added leaf, took it out, less hot water, piping hot, more sweetener, no sweetener… it’s just not what I want from something called Candy Bar Tea.

All I get from it is a thin generic Darjeeling. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t awesome either. I won’t remember this tea. Other than, of course, that there were both popcorn bits in it and caramel pieces, and I couldn’t taste either no matter what I did.

Dear Steepster Friends,

I know you salivated over this tea as soon as I posted it. I get it. I did as soon as I received it, too.

The idea of candy bar tea? Yaasss. I’m in. Like Flynn.

Sadly, I didn’t get what I think I should have out of this tea. Why? The super cute tea spoon that it came with didn’t allow for enough room to portion it out (leaves = big = good). Plus, I had no idea as to how much – there’s nothing listed on the bag other than the name, the really cute logo (a tea stain!), and a note about not drinking things you’re allergic to.

Okay. But how much leaf?

I guessed, dear friends. And I failed miserably.

I put in (about) a tablespoon of tea and caramel bits, into a 12 oz cup of 200F hot water.

Yea, it was just flavored, weak tea. Nothing I can even grab to say, “yes, that’s what it tasted like”.

Just weak, thin, tea.

Boo.

I’ll try again tomorrow.
