drank Cucumber Mint by Tea Forte

I’m not usually a fan of green or flavored tea but since this was a free sample, what do I have to lose? It’s not actually bad. The green tea part isn’t icky & overwhelming. The mint is a little strong and I don’t really get any cucumber. I’m actually going to finish this cup, which is saying a lot.

Trying it with a bit of milk this time. Not sure it does anything for the tea. Very ‘meh’.

Dry, this smells very much like ‘tea’. Being BOP, I have to remind myself that I don’t have to use as much as I normally would. Sometimes I succeed, other times not so much. Once brewed, this is a very strong smelling tea. I catch a hint of something in the nose but not sure what it is. Fruity, maybe? Not a bad tasting tea and It can definitely handle milk & sugar. Next time I might try that.

This is a pretty smoky smelling tea. It’s not overpowering like some I’ve had but as I’m not a fan of smoky tea, it’s enough. The flavor is a little caramel, a little smoke and a little something else I can’t quite place. It’s a decent enough tea, just not one for me.

The dry leaf smells very fruity. Yes, possibly the ‘stone fruit’ mentioned in the description. While steeping, I don’t get much aroma at all. Maybe a little fruit and tea. But I have to almost submerge my nose to get it. The actual tea is not impressive. I don’t get much flavor from it at all. Though there does seem to be something ‘fruity’ at the back of my throat. This is my second cup of this tea and it seems weaker than the first though time spent steeping it was roughly the same. This requires more experimentation.

drank Cherry Cosmo by Tea Forte

Cherry is one of those flavors that gets me to buy things I wouldn’t normally. This tastes of something fruity but I’m not sure it’s cherry. After looking at the ingredient list, I see there isn’t anything cherry about this tea other than the name. Possibly the ‘natural flavors’ but who really knows. It tastes a lot like hibiscus. Who thought that would be a good pairing for almost anything herbal? The hibiscus generally overpowers whatever else it’s with and this is no exception. I suspect that some other people are right and it would be better as an iced tea.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

After several cups, I’m still not sure what to make of this tea. It’s vanilla. And it’s pretty sweet on it’s own. I think it might make a better tea latte than drinking it straight. Still haven’t decided it it’s worth a re-buy or not.

I got sucked into this tea by the word ‘coconut’. But I’m not sure if what I smell is coconut or vanilla. Could be both. Either way, it’s very cloying. Very sweet smelling. And ultimately, doesn’t taste like either vanilla or coconut.

drank Kuki Yerba Mate by Samovar

I’m dealing with the end of a cold so my sense of taste isn’t what it should be. But I can’t say this thrills me. It’s not horrible but no out of this world either. Just pretty average.

I love tea. Some say I’m obsessed.

I don’t drink green tea and I don’t like iced tea. I also drink my tea naked with the exception of Earl Grey which gets just a bit of milk (not cream) and sugar.

I’m open to swapping tea! :-)
