Thanks The DJBooth for this one! This is quite an interesting tea. Very unsual in flavor profile. I like the fruity/spicy flavor of it. I agree with The DJBooth on adding cinnamon it really would taste like a holiday tea. But it is quite tasty I like it.

Oh man this is good. I love teas that taste like a sinful dessert minus the calories :-) Wow this is the first one from Frank that I really want to get a full batch of and always have in my stash. This is so creamy and smooth no bitterness at all. I never want to be without this tea! Yum!

Thanks The DJ Booth for this sample :-) This is pretty good. Its strangely sweet though which was surprising. I agree with one of the other reviewers it almost has a cinnamon gum taste to it. The dry leaf and steeped leaf smell delicious but I feel like the taste doesnt match up. But still a decent mate blend.

This is a whole lot of YUM! I agree with the other reviewers that this one done as a latte really makes it shine. Just gives it that extra bit of creaminess it needs. I actually did it with unsweetened coconut milk. Which was a delicious combination. Will definitely order this again :-)

Nice! I just ordered this!!! Do you think it’d be good with almond milk too? Although coconut sounds pretty darn good!

Zephyr

Yeah almond milk would probably work well too. Soy is always a good choice as well. :-)

This tea is from a small shop near where I live. I got it as a gift for xmas last year. It is a really strong blend but I really like it. It is heavy on the cinnamon and light on the orange and I like that. Will probably go get some more once I run out. Also when I go I’ll make sure to find out what the complete blend is since I am unsure of the base tea and I’m curious. :-)

drank Strawberry by Lupicia

Got this as a free sample with the Lupicia letter that comes in the mail once a month. This one is okay but I just wish it had more straberry flavor to it. It smells wonderful and I wish that came across in the flavor. Oh well it was free so I can’t really complain :-)

Man this is my last cup of this too. I’m finishing off a lot of 52’s this week. It’s sad but my stash is looking more roomy for new teas :-)

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas

Well there wasn’t any question that I would enjoy this one. I love Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha and Browncoat Genmaicha. This was pretty much a combination of the two and yum what a perfect combination it is. This is a very smokey yet sweet genmaicha. Definitely one I will purchase again when it gets reblended. :-)

Mmmmmmm pancakey goodness. I don’t know why I waited so long to order this one. I guess I was just not worried since it was a permanent blend so I just kept glossing over it when I went to the site. Man that was stupid! I love this tea. I knew I would love it after I had the gooey butter cake black tea. Frank does the buttery/pastry like flavor the best! I wish this had a little more maple but otherwise it is delicious. Yum sipdown!
