Mango is a BIG thumbs up for me. It will overtake Green and Fruity for that "type" of taste for me.

I think I'll like this one. I'm going to make it to go along with my sesame chicken that I have for lunch. It'll remind me of a chinese/japanese restaurant.

I really enjoyed the jasmine tea! I do find that it tastes like any other jasmine tea, nothing special or funky about it, but it's really good.

I've never had jasmine tea so who knows if I will like it or not! I'm looking forward to trying it.

yeah it's pretty surprising! And costly (in the future). :lol:

I did like the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait - as an occasional tea I think. ;) it's on my buy small amounts list.

I enjoyed today's tea. I was surprised as I don't normally like green teas.

This morning I measured out two tea bags - one of day 1 and one of strawberry rhubarb from the other day. At least I *thought* I did. Nope, I put both in one bag :evil: I didn't want to waste the tea so just went with it. Surprisingly it was not too bad.

i haven't been doing a very good job this year of drinking these in order. just trying blueberry jam now. i think i would buy it. i tend to buy the same old black teas, so i need to shake things up a bit. i normally associate fruity teas with herbal teas. this one is a pleasant change.

It smells amazing. I will have some when I get to work. I wanted to try this one, so I'm happy to see it in the calendar.

although sometimes my thoughts change on the second cup. I think it depends on how I steep. I use the recommended time but some of them I like to steep less time.

But yes it smells amazing. It smells even better when it's steeping. :drool:

Coffee cake smells wonderful. I am enjoying a cup at my desk. Not sure I need a big tin of it but would like to have it for the odd time.

I like it, too. Agree that I likely won't buy a tin, but it is nice and I'll be enjoying more than one mug today at work.

I'm starting my day with neocitran... but looking forward to trying a cup of coffee cake later! I've never even heard of this tea and black is my favorite so it will be a nice discovery.

I'm not in love with today's tea. It's OK, but I don't think I'd buy it.

I found today's tea smelled and tasted very much like Santa's Secret - which I have a tin of already.....

What's today's tea? Coffee cake? That's nothing like Santa's Secret (mint).

I was wondering that! I haven't tried it yet, but the ingredients don't seem similar at all.
