Extra Note:

Trying 4 tsp and 2 sugar cubes, added 1 afterward- the tea was a bit more bitter, but in a nice way- the taste of some island fruits/tartness though did overcome most of the sweet tones. This time it tasted more like the Wild Orange Blossoms herbal tea (by Teavana). Maybe less steeping time? Maybe I’m letting too much of the bottom of the tealeaves (in the infuser) seep into the cup?

Any advice?

Maybe less tea? I haven’t tried this one, but 4 tsp seems like quite a bit. If I’m not happy with a tea due to bitterness, I generally use a little less tea and lower the temp, and see how that works for me. :)

Ah, thanks for the tip! I’ll try that =D

This one really grows on you- it tastes mild (NOT bland), soothing- hints of lemon, rose, orange, chamomile, rose hips (I think), floral and earthy tones. Very nice and relaxing! It can be a little bitter/tart at first, but in a good way.

SOOOOOOOOOOOO good!

It was like cotton candy in tea form! It was sweet, but not too sweet, with hints of rose, orange, and tones of fruit (papaya or mango?)- This is one of my favorite desert teas so far!

LOVE this one! Like a sort of lemonade…

A bit bitter, but in a good way- tart…orange, rose, and some hints of apple and/or strawberry- maybe it’s peach or papaya or mango? Some sort island fruit…Floral- again, a lemonade kind of taste.

I totally like it! A great, refreshing, morning tea or afternoon tea for when you need a pick-me-up or refreshing. I bet it would taste lovely as iced tea too- though I used to consider iced tea a blasphemy before my obsession began lol

I was very disappointed in this one. Somehow, it has a good cocoa taste but is still pretty tasteless and bland- definitely didn’t taste any caramel. The chocolate flavor was nice, fresh, prominent…there was a hint of coconut and hazelnut…but somehow the whole cup was too watery/mild despite the heavy taste of cocoa. I tried it more than once (I use an infuser), doubled my tea leaves, used less water, but it didn’t get any better.

I wasn’t expecting hot chocolate, but this was pretty dang bland. Pretty pissed, actually- I was expecting much better than this so, obviously, I wouldn’t recommend it- if you’re looking for a caramel/desert-type herbal tea, I’d eagerly refer you to “Bengal Spice” by Celestial Seasonings- and “Celestial” isn’t a brand I tend to recommend, but this one here is soooo good, like a cup of cinnamon caramel!

Nice and sweet, hint of mint. A bit more mild than I prefer, but still a good tea. I like to mix it with Bigelow’s or Twining’s Chamomile tea or Bigelow’s “Sweet Dreams” for when I’m going to bed.

Bio

I am still a very n00b when it comes to tea even though I’ve been drinking herbal tea all my life. I only fell madly in love with it just a few months ago- next thing I know, I have 11 boxes of different teas. (I just counted xD)

I’m Mormon/LDS, so I only drink herbal tea. I drank black tea for a while, but eventually decided to switch back to herbal for religious reasons- though I loved the taste of Traditional British Breakfast, Chai, and Earl Grey (all under the Twinings brand).

Since then, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed finding and tasting different herbal teas- it came be so relaxing or so energizing. I love it!

I’m a 24 year old university student born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. I go to school in Provo, Ut where I’m majoring in English and English Teaching.

I love to write, read, dance ballet, and basically passionate about all the humanities.

I’m a big Sherlockian, Whovian, and totally Cumberbatched.
