drank Plum Oolong by Teaopia

This tea was my introduction to Oolong teas.

I’ve got a bit in a sample tin that I’m scared to use until I find out if I can get some more. Which doesn’t really make any sense because if I don’t drink it, it’s like I’m already out, right? Right.

I love how this tea smells.

I brewed it up last night for some iced tea and it’s got a pretty good flavor overall. Am I slightly disappointed that it doesn’t taste like an actual root beer float? Yeah, I am. But looking at it realistically, it’s tea.

And as a tea, it’s pretty darned tasty.

I am considering adding either whipped cream or root beer flavored vodka to it. Probably the whipped because it seemed to lack that super creamy flavor I expected.

I tried this partly because of the great reviews here. Chocolate, raspberry and almond? Sign. Me. Up.

When I open the tin, it smells like a raspberry truffle. Yum. Yet another tea I could just sit and smell all day long.

Once brewed, the taste lives up to the smell – so long as I use enough leaf.

This one will be staying on my shelf.

drank Wild Cherry by Teaopia

I waffle on this tea.

I really like passion tea from Tazo so I think that’s why this tea is ok to me – it’s full of hibiscus.

But, that’s also why I’m not always keen on the tea. It has an amazing cherry scent. I open the bag just to take a sniff once in awhile because it smells that good.

But I only brew it when I’m craving Passion tea because it has such a strong hibiscus flavor. I’ve tried brewing it for a shorter time. I’ve tried brewing it longer. Nothing seems to bring out the cherry more.

Maybe I should try it iced?

When it comes to bagged tea, I don’t have a lot anymore. This is one of the few you’ll still find on my shelf.

I like the mix of mint and lime. I find I like it better iced rather than hot.

drank Ice Age by Teaopia

I have a tin of this at home and a smaller tin at the office.

I first tried it cold brewed at home and it makes an amazing iced tea. Minty and citrus-y and sweet without needing added sugar.

I even enjoy it hot, but as with other Rooibos teas, I have to be very careful with steeping it too long – something that happens far too often at work when I get sidetracked. I either need a timer or this tea just goes back to living at home and cold steeping.

drank Strawberry Fields by Teaopia

Maybe I should’ve tried this one iced. Most of the reviews rave about it, but I found it wasn’t that great brewed hot.

I ended up mixing it with the creamed earl grey also from Teaopia and that helped it, but it’s not a tea I would buy again.

Not my favorite Rooibos. It’s nice, light and slightly sweet and I suspect it would make a delicious iced tea, it’s just underwhelming brewed hot.

The first time I tried this tea, I’ll admit I was slightly disappointed. When you open the tin, it’s got a fantastic (if slightly strong) fruity smell.

Once brewed, it loses a lot of that fragrance and comes up a bit short on flavor.

It does make a nice, light green iced tea in the summer.

Before I discovered the wider world of loose leaf teas available to me, it was always on my shelf. Now I’m trying to use up the tin I have so I can experiment with other options.

Tasty, standard chai tea. Nothing really outstanding, but nothing bad about it either.

I’ve always enjoyed tea. Lately, I’ve stepped away from the grocery store selection of bagged teas and found the world of loose leaf teas.
