drank Floral Passion by Primula Tea

This was in the sampler with the teapot my wife and I received as a wedding gift. Not a bad tea flavor wise but bloom looked like a old tattered flag. Not bad though dark for a green tea.

drank JavaVana Mate by Teavana
374 tasting notes

Had to get some more of this when we went to Teavana. This morning a TSP of Java and a TSP of the good Dr. Tea’s Imperial Pu-Erh…..Yum!!!!!!!!!!!!

SimplyJenW

Which Teavana do you visit locally? I think Beachwood is closest to me, but I am afraid to go in. I hate pushy sales people…… I still need to make it to the Asian market, too! I would ahve gotten there sooner if my tea cabinet were not overflowing! Any other good local sources?

The DJBooth

I normally would go to the one in Beachwood but now they have one in Belden Village in Canton. I’ve tried to search for more places…praise tea is based in cleveland but I don’t know if they have an actual store. You can try Clementines in Olmsted Falls as well.

SimplyJenW

Thank you! I do think Praise Tea goes to a Farmer’s Market in the Peninsula, OH area on Saturdays.

I bought this tea to get me up to 25 dollars to get a free box of tea since I was re-ordering my Pu-Ehr :) I was surprised. A nice Oolong tea. I could pick out the Oolong flavor…Ti Kuan Yin maybe? The combination of the flavors actually tastes a little peachy to me. I think it’s quite tasty.

Cofftea

Pu Erh probably would have been a better base for this lol.

KeenTeaThyme

I don’t get it…is it just ‘cuz he’s the president or does he have an interest in tea? Hmm… ;)

Batrachoid

It’s like the statue of Liberty yixing, I think. If one can slap a recognizable symbol on something to sell a product, someone will. To knowledge Obama is a coffee and cigarette man, correct? Tsk tsk. XD

Cofftea

@KeenTeaThyme, because then the same words would describe the tea as his political practices.

@Batrachoid, What’s wrong with coffee and why are you judging him for that? I’ve heard he’s quit smoking twice- yet another way he’s dishonest. Oh well. As for tea. I’m guessing that because of his ethnicity he’s probably drank red and/or green bush before. Maybe even African chai.

Batrachoid

I meant the cigarettes. I used to have a deathly allergy to them. I like coffee sometines too. Kenya AAA is one of my favorite kinds, actually XD
I hadn’t thought of that but when you think about he did live in the region of Africa that grows rooibos…He probaly at least know about loose leaf brewing at least.

Starting my day with this one…Oh how I love it! Truly an incredible Pu-Erh! This was my last bit of it….but it’s on sale for 10 dollars at Dr.Tea’s website. So more will be ordered!

drank English Breakfast by Twinings
374 tasting notes

Found a can of this at Big Lots for 2.50 already a win. I’ve found this one to be quite good. Malty, not too strong black flavor. In my experience between Twinnings and Teavanna there is not much deviation in the flavor which is good. If you like English Breakfast you could go with either it will be good. I did notice that Twinnings loose leaf are a little bit tinier almost like a CTC Assam. Made it in the french press…two tasty steepings so far. This could become a favorite.

teawing

I have only had the bagged version of this, but I am going to swing by Biglots today with the hope…
It has been a staple for me for some time. Thanks for the heads up.

Another tea from my Easter hoppitea package. It’s light. Nice coconut undertones to this one. Added some of David’s tea Cocomama Lime to it. Made quite a nice treat. You put the lime in the…. :)

Tried this on a suggestion of my wife. Overall this is pretty tasty tea. Reminds me a lot of Lipton’s peach ice tea that you buy in the store….minus the sweetness. Not bad for a three dollar box of tea.

gmathis

I wish our selection of grocery-store Stash was bigger here in the Midwest; we see three, four flavors tops on the shelves here.

Jillian

I’m rather fond of this one too – it isn’t half-bad iced IMO.

The DJBooth

Ha ha @jillian my wife and I actually said that when we were trying that.

Starting off the day with Dr. Oz and Margaret. Another Tea that fairyfly sent me in my Hoppitea basket. This is my second time trying a selection from the garden. It’s bright has that muscatel/nutty flavor that is characteristic to Darjeeling. Darjeeling alway reminds me of fall which is my favorite season. Very good

teawing

and my favorite season as well! currently drinking some darjeeling chai at the moment…
