Mmmm… This tea smells quite yummy. Both the dry tea and steeped tea pour out the scent of pineapple. It smells sweet, fruity and refreshing and it tastes the same. I bet it would be awesome iced! I started craving it a few hours after I finished my cup!

I had this tea today while helping my boyfriend build a computer, an odd combination, but anyway that doesn’t really have to do with the taste of the tea.

This was quite pleasant! I was planning on having Lime Black tea and then I remembered this tea. Thanks Rachel for sending this to me! I have only ever had peach oolong in iced honest tea form but I find it to be a great combination. I loved the undertones of almond in this tea. I didn’t get that much vanilla flavor, but I definitely didn’t find the tea lacking.

Building computers is pretty common in my house too. :-)

Haha – are you in an IT field?

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

I am not but my hubby is… I am more a computer geek as a hobby

Caitlin

My bf is in school for IT and I am slowly being converted to a computer geek myself – haha

You may as well run with it if he is in “IT” then just know you’ll be getting into it whether you like it or not. :-)

I saw TeaEqualsBliss’ note on this tea and I was like that’s what I want this morning. Had this as my morning wake up call in my favorite mug, while reading a good book. Is there a better way to start the morning?

Boiling

It shocks me how many Zoomdweebies teas aren’t logged yet!! Anyway this tea was just not for me. I expected it to taste like the fruit cocktail green tea or the tutti frutti black, both of which I quite enjoyed. I was actually afraid it would taste too much like the tutti frutti. However this did not taste anything like it. To me it tasted like bubble gum, more like bubbl gum that is beginning to lose its flavor though. I will try this tea again but I just don’t think its my cup of tea.

Had this with breakfast this morning. Earl Grey is not my favorite tea. I don’t like the feeling that I am drinking black tea while wearing really floral perfume. Its not bad. I would just prefer straight breakfast tea.

Backlogging from last night… I had this with a little milk. Despite my lack of interest in chocolate teas, I guess it was just a chocolate day – haha. Anyway this was really good, not particularly chocolatey but nice and flavorful. I enjoyed drinking it while reading a book :)

I won this in the 52 teas weekly news letter contest, on my birthday of all weeks to win! I have been wanting to try this tea since I first heard about it so I figured this would be an excellent opportunity to try it out!

Today it came in the mail and I was uber excited to try it plus I was really wanting a caffeine fix! Now I really am not a fan of chocolate teas I just don’t think the flavor can be replicated in a tea. I don’t think they taste bad but I just don’t think they taste like chocolate, but regardless I was very drawn to this tea.

I have never had yerba mate before so I don’t really know what to expect in terms of the base tea. The dry leaves smell mildly like the heath bar tea I have from 52 teas but with a little less of that protein bar scent. Also I swear… I know this is weird, but it smells like fig newtons.

Once the tea is steeped I am getting occasionally whiffs that really smell strongly of chocolate (like a chocolate syrup kind of chocolate). However it tastes again like figs. Which isn’t a bad flavor at all. In fact I throughly enjoyed this tea, but I am tasting more figs then chocolate. When I have milk in my fridge again I am definitely gonna try this both with a splash of milk and as a latte with a little bit of chocolate syrup for sweetener. I greatly look forward to experimenting with this tea.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I think the bag this tea came in is really niffty. I have never had a mighty leaf tea before. I ended up purchasing a variety pack of mighty leaf tea to bring an amazon order up to $25 to get free shipping, so I have even more tea to try = yay!

As for the tea, this is a pretty standard black tea. It has more flavor depth than say lipton black or something equivalent. I am a big fan of breakfast teas so I enjoyed this pretty throughly. I look forward to trying the other teas!

This tea tastes like the fruit cocktail tea but with a black base instead of a green one. It smells fruity and delicious and it tastes fruity and delicious. This was a very happy tea to start the morning off with. If teas had personalities this one would be fun-loving and care-free. I look forward to trying this iced!

drank Perry the Platypus by Adagio Teas

Mmm this was good. A mild yet spicy chai that kind of tastes like it already has milk in it which is kind of cool. It also smells delicious. Its one of those teas that makes your kitchen smell really good. I really enjoyed this tea as a little afternoon pick-me-up!

Profile

Bio

Tea has always been a part of my life. A cup of tea was always the solution to middle school tears and high school early mornings.

When I was in college I started quite the little tea collection in my tiny kitchen cabinets.

I have definitely scaled back my tea ordering and tasting the past 2 years or so, but I am getting back into it.

Outside of tea my interests include reading, photography, too much tv, visiting new places, trying new restaurants and playing video games with my husband.
