This is actually my mom’s tea that she picked up at a tea shop in Alaska. I wish it was mine though because it’s really good! The orange in this tea is fresh and yummy tasting and vanilla and mint blend very well with the orange. I think orange and peppermint is a hard combination to balance personally. This tea does it very well and the red rooibos tea base is nice here too. I definitely get winter solstice vibes from the flavors in this tea.

Flavors: Cream, Mint, Orange, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Orange and peppermint does sound like it would be tricky, but this one sounds so good!

Another sachet sample that came in the mini sampler I ordered. I wasn’t too excited to try this one because even though I really like tumeric teas I don’t usually like ginger and turmeric paired together without any other ingredients. I have been meaning to start looking for some more turmeric teas since it’s a great anti-inflammatory and I find that it helps during flare-ups.
This is actually not what I was expecting both spices are very mild in this. I can definitely taste the green tea though. It’s a little bit boring but I’m glad that the green tea comes through more than the ginger. I’m gonna sip on this while I take my exam. I would drink this again if I got the chance but don’t need to purchase a jar of it.

175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Banana Flambe by Curtis

Ordered this because of Steepster
I was excited to try this since I only recall having tried one other banana tea in the past from A Quarter To Tea. (Still hoping She’ll reopen again at some point)
This one smells so good once steeped and tastes like a Banana Dessert. This is delicious it reminds me of these chocolate covered banana candies that I always get at the greek deli in town. It’s literally that candy but in tea form.

The flavor still is tasty when sipping even though the tea is in tea bag form? Onto the wish list this goes.. :)

I’m right there with you on the hopes of someday placing another AQ2T order. The Grilled Spiced Banana was a favorite of mine.

Tiffany: It’s really good!
Dustin: I never got to try that one, unfortunately. I loved her Turtle Dove tea though!

I miss AQ2T’s banana! Their Banoffee is one of my all time favorite teas.

Made a pot of this for everyone tonight. Everyone seemed to really like it. It’s one of my favorite teas as well. It has a Nice buttery apple flavor that definitely does remind me of buttered popcorn. Starting to get near the end of the bag so I went and looked to see if it was still available. Unfortunately, it’s not but hopefully, it’ll come back at some point so I can stock up.

One of my all-time favorites from DT! XD

I wanted something Chocolate-y tonight and this was pretty much all I had. Not quite what I wanted but I do like this one! It’s a lovely night time tea. Very creamy with some mint and lavender. I’ve been meaning to work on finishing up the box of this anyway.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 10 OZ / 295 ML

I just finished a cup this evening! Creamy is a good description, and now you’ve made me wonder how well it would take milk. (Note to self … )

drank White Peach by Adagio Teas

Another single serving sample packet
This one was ok not bad but probably my least favorite thus far. Flavored white teas more often than not just miss the mark for me. This one was quite earthy with a slight peach flavor. I’d drink this again but don’t need to purchase it. I got two steeps out of this one. I prefer the Peach Oolong to this one.
