This is my first time trying a vanilla flavored tea, and it may very well be the last. Way, way too strong and completely overpowers the tea. The smell itself was hard to deal with. I grudgingly finished it as I don’t like to waste tea, but I will not be having it again. And, while the bag satchels are totally adorable (the hand-stitching is super cute), the string absorbs the tea and drives it to drip out of the cup. I don’t know if this was due to user error (am I supposed to take the bag out once it’s steeped? I usually don’t…) but it was annoying to have to keep a tissue nearby to soak up the drippage.
Edit: I’m upping my rating, slightly. As the tea began to cool and I drank larger gulps, it did seem to become more palatable. Still, I don’t think I’ll be getting it again.
Aromas: lemon, orange, grapefruit, floral, mint
Great tea bag quality, I appreciate that there is no staple on the silk pyramid pouch.
This tea has really strong floral notes with hints of citrus, a very subtle chamomile. The lemon zest that lingers is quite pleasant and adds to this tea’s sophistication.
Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the share. However’s I don’t think I am this tea’s target audience given my dislike of chamomile. It’s not the worst chamomile tea I have tried and the lemongrass comes out quite strongly but that isn’t a flavor I love and even if it was, it isn’t enough to hide the chamomile. It is always nice to try new things though because you never know what might surprise you.
Few teas added to my cupboard yesterday courtesy of the lovely evolvingness. So of course, since i’m desperate for new things, they’re on the menu today! this one wasn’t half bad. I never expect much from this company for some reason but this was a decent cup to start the morning. Nothing that i need to keep around but it was a decent “every day” sort of tea.
Chai Tea is my go to at coffee shops and breakfast joints, especially if they have a good one. Making chai at home is an adventure I am still pretty new at. It’s complicated, finicky, and messy. The outcome is god though, and with more practice, I think I could make a pretty good cup of chai, and even an acceptable chai latte.
This specific chai is not bad. A little on the spicy side, as it probably should be. The brew itself I need more practice with, but with time I think this could turn out to be a great mix.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Peppercorn
Jet black needles with bits of gold. Pretty. I am guessing that it is a DianHong Gong Fu cha, or Yunnan Gold. The tea steeps up red brown. Punchy—good hit of malt, dark cocoa, and lingering muscatel sweetness. A bit bewildering for my tastebuds—like a mega Darjeeling crossed with an intense Yunnan black. I am currently on steep four and it appears to still be going strong.
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Honey, Muscatel, Sweet Potatoes

I just found this bag in my tea cabinet, and made a small pot last week. It’s been a while since I’ve had a pot of tea, I’ve been having an afternoon coffee almost exclusively for the past couple of years. I had forgotten how wonderful this tea is with some raw sugar and a bit of cream or 1/2&1/2. I went to the Mighty Leaf website to order more, and was sad to find it’s no longer available. I’m on the hunt for a replacement chocolate tea.
Making myself a cup of this on my break from Spinzilla spinning. As always, drinking it with milk, since I think that enhances and supports the vanilla flavor, which is in line with what I’m looking for right now: a nice, comforting, reliable cup to relax with, since I still have a long way to go today before the to-do list feels like I’ve done it justice.
Still trying to get back into the swing of things after Irma. This Orchid Oolong arrived a few days after the hurricane passed, while I was still in the midst of cleanup, and I’ve been waiting to do a tasting note until I feel I can give it my full attention. Well, today still isn’t that day, but I’m drinking it anyway, because sometimes, mood trumps ability.
Steeped a slightly rounded teaspoon of leaves in 9ish ounces of water about 10 seconds off the boil, 4 minutes.
Dry scent: Cool, deep, fairly complex. Sort of sweet and bitter at the same time, with varying notes. At times a chocolatey scent comes through, or a zesty fruity scent, or the oolong base, or a faint cream underlaid by sharpness. Reminds me of a cool, damp, shady tropical forest, with mossy rocks and hanging plants.
Scent of steeped tea: Lighter than the dry scent, slightly creamy, with oolong sweetness and an underlying cool earthiness.
Taste: Would it sound odd to say this tastes like light amber? A light, refreshing oolong flavor overlaid by a touch of caramel and a veil of pale flowers, not much depth. Pleasant and drinkable, but not remarkable.
Five years ago I had a sample pouch of this that I remember being intriguingly delicious, and there are multiple reviews on the Mighty Leaf site that sound like they’re of the same tea I had then: unexpectedly floral, silky, full-bodied, addictive. I wish this tea were that tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Flowers
I weighed part of my cupboard the other day though I still have about 1/3 of my cupboard to go. Consequently I decided if I drink the teas I haven’t weighed yet, it would be less work and since I haven’t weighed the teas from Evol Ving Ness (or even finished adding them all to my cupboard) I decided to pull some teas from there.
The box is full of chais it seems which worked well today since I wanted to make a latte and chais make for good lattes. However, weirdly enough, I ended up making this tea instead of one of the many chais and I am blaming the power of persuasion since the bag said it was better as a latte.
It’s an alright blend and definitely has some spices which make for a nice latte. I’m getting cinnamon and ginger but also a fair amount of anise, which I don’t love. There is also a fruity element so I can certainly see how this is a holiday blend. It is not my favorite but I can see the appeal as a holiday blend and Evol’s latte recommendation was appreciated. As was the share. Thank you Evol for sending a sample my way!
