Very cinnamony – and very sweet. I adore cinnamon and I love chai, but this isn’t my favorite way to enjoy these flavors. This was a sample – I won’t be purchasing.

drank Caramel Corn by DAVIDsTEA

I am not a huge fan of popcorn, I like caramel corn even less, so no surprise this isn’t my favorite. I was surprised, however, that I liked it as much as I do. It does taste like caramel corn, including the butter. Not bad considering all the flavors are not favorites.

Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Popcorn

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

I liked the name of this much more than the tea itself. I have so many of these samples, trying it every now and then, still don’t love this one. I can taste the nuts, I love nuts, I guess I don’t love nut in tea.

Preparation

drank Punjabi Masala Chai by Teabox

A very strong chai, it was good and strong. I enjoy spice and usually drink my chai without additives, as I did this one. It seemed a bit strong for me, I had only one serving since it was from the Joy box, a Christmas Advent box. I wished I had added milk before it was finished, I didn’t think of that until it was too late. Oh well, a good chai but not my favorite, but then I didn’t really give it a complete try.

Flavors: Astringent, Cardamon, Clove

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Such a strong taste of menthol, that is all I taste. I had forgotten about this tea, and I think I will push it back in the far reaches of my tea cabinet, I am not a fan of this tea.

Now my favorite Earl Grey, and I have tried many since it is my favorite blend of tea. I can always drink a cup of earl grey. My husband likes an occasional cup of tea as well, if he isn’t drinking a craft beer, then tea is a possibility. He asked me what this one was since it tasted distinctly better than any earl grey he had previously had. I must say, I agree. It is the best of all the ones I have tried. I will put this on my list for the next Harney & Sons, thankfully, I bought a pound bag, so I have enough for all the comings mornings :). I made two teapots of it this morning, sharing is hard :).

Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot

I brewed this Gongfu style, delicious. It really brings out the chocolate notes, especially in the pre brewing aroma. A delicious tea that I am sorry is now gone.
This was from spring 2017.

Strong coconut aroma, that is the primary smell of the tea. I really don’t taste or smell the tea, although the liquor resembles an oolong tea, the taste is overpowered by the coconut. Coconut is a great flavor so it isn’t really a problem, but I wish the flavor of the tea was stronger. I think hot is good, but I bet cold is even better, that is next.

Flavors: Coconut

drank Chinese Five Spice by 52teas

Very interesting, in a good way, tea. I enjoyed the sweet, caramely flavor makes for a warm, slightly astringent tea. You can taste the Yunnan black tea, delicious. The sweet mandarin orange adds aroma and sweetness, of set by the clove and peppercorns, spicy in a new way. I enjoyed this cup of tea, perhaps, I’ll have another!

Flavors: Clove, Orange, Peppercorn
