Best. Accessory. Ever. I get so many amazed stares and comments whenever I use this-- truly, the design is simple but ingenious, and is nearly impossible to botch and make a mess. That doesn't mean you can't, though, so be sure you always set it down on a level surface...

If you're sensitive to heat like me, getting the infuser out of the cup can take a bit of finagling. Also there aren't any holes on the bottom of the infuser, but that's easily remedied by (cautiously) grabbing the edge and swirling the infuser in the glass.

Sweet and tart in equal measures, this tea can pack a punch and soothe your spirit in the same sip. You can taste each individual fruit, and the black tea base rounds it out to keep it from being bitter. This is one of my go-to teas, and that's not changing anytime soon.

This tea was unexpectedly fantastic. I say unexpectedly only because teas with strong bases of chocolate and vanilla tend to come off rather plain-- they're kind of a staple of the tea community. But with the cinnamon and apple, everything pops and is altered just slightly and it's fresh and bold and so very like the mascot. Instant favorite.

I've learned that the initial taste of chamomile isn't my favorite, but the aftertaste of this particular tea is heavenly. It reminds me of a blueberry muffin fresh from the oven.

Definitely better warm than cold. Feels a bit like a remedy for a cold, but without the nasty aftertaste of repressed childhood memories. Very soothing, very sweet, and with substance.

It tastes like one of those orange-filled chocolate truffles! How neat!

When I got this tea, I knew exactly what I was getting into. Fire and engine grease and that ridiculously smooth personality are all included in this blend, and I look forward already to several night spent curled up with a mug of it.

I've always been a staunch dissenter of anything mango flavored, but since teas tend to have a different flavor scope than artificial syrups, I gave this a try and I loved it. It's light and flirty with a wonderfully strong base, and pairs quite well with the Pilot tea, oddly. It also rounds out Jakku quite nicely.

Seriously, I can't say enough about these teas. I love love love the peach and apricot overtones-- forget pumpkin spice, this feels like fall or late, late summer. Absolutely one I will want more of.

WHOAH. This stuff is the real deal. If you ever wanted a tea that tastes like melted butterscotch, this is it. It's almost too sweet to have at a random time but when you have a craving, this will sate it. I can almost feel myself transported to the Three Broomsticks, chatting with mates and watching the snow fall outside.

I bought this on a whim because I wanted to taste more things with lemon in it. WOW. The initial taste is just sour enough to get your attention, and then it immediately smooths into a rounder, sweeter taste and aftertaste. I loved it so much more than I thought I would. Great hot and as it cools!

this tea tastes like the quiver of a mouse's breath on a snowy, starlit night. How? I have no idea. But I am grateful for it and the art is stunning!

I'm a sucker for earl grey in just about any form, but this tea is what got me to stop hating irish breakfast. Because this was also the tea that taught me I'd been doing it all wrong. The collision of flavors adds base to the Earl Grey and tempers the otherwise sharp bite of the Irish breakfast.
There's a strange aftertaste that I can't seem to identify in this tea, and I am consistently unsure if I like it. But it keeps me trying it over and over because the initial taste is so good. A bit of milk and sugar helps to temper that odd taste. This tea tastes like childhood and shadows.

Earl grey, chocolate, and vanilla. What's not to love? It's great to sip while reading, or staring outside and wishing for snow while an old movie plays in the background. It feels very nostalgic and sweet, like a kind of thin blue-gray filter over memories.

This tea feels a bit like baby Neville-- full of potential, but afraid to really roar. It would pair wonderfully with a sweet treat, because it's not so sweet that it'll compete with the flavor. A solid tea though, make no mistake. Not to be underestimated.

It felt a little plain, but sometimes that's what you need after an overwhelming day. All of the flavors work well together, they're just very common flavors. A sweet treat at the end of day, good or bad.

I learned the hard way that cherry flavoring tastes like cough syrup to me. That's no shade on the maker of the tea, just a fact I did not know about myself going in. If you like the cherry flavoring in most foods, you'll love the chocolate cherry aspect of this tea.

It didn't make for a very good introduction to tea itself, but once I came back and tried it again after expanding my palate a bit, it was pretty great.

As bright and light as Remus' tea is dark and earthy, this blend seems to be the flavor version of a practiced expression of innocence and a 'who, me?' Playful and extremely floral, it's a tea best enjoyed in the afternoon while relaxing with music.

For a tea whose only chocolate is in the accent, this blend is incredibly chocolatey. Smooth and rich to the point of feeling like a denser liquid, it is going to be absolutely perfect when winter sets in to stay.
Nov 12th '15
All of the comments about fruity pebbles are true. This tea is sweet, endearing, and possesses a quiet strength at its base. Much like its namesake!
Nov 12th '15
This tea tasted a bit like warm ice cream, which was a little off-putting. If you are a fan of sprinkles, the aftertaste will be absolutely up your alley. I think, however, that it might be best over ice for maximum flavor and sweetness.

In general, I am Irish breakfast's least supportive fan. But in this tea, the overall result is like a wet and muddy dog who has just returned from keeping his best friend company all night. The aesthetic is so good that I don't mind the flavor. In short, it doesn't taste like most irish breakfast teas I have come across, and I do recommend it even to the doubtful.

This was my first experience with chamomile, and I am not entirely certain if I like that little tang that comes with it (though that might not have necessarily belonged to the chamomile). i finished my whole mug, however, and I foresee many future cool evenings spent relaxing with this cup of friendship in my hand.

There is quite a lot going on in this tea, but the majority of the flavor is overridden by the strength of the cherry, so it lacks the nuance. It tastes like a good tea to drink when you are sick.

This blend is fascinating. It tastes like the scent of rich, moist earth, sunlight, and berries. A perfect mix for our favorite forest boy.

Wow! This tea smells a lot like coffee but tastes sweet and comforting. Perfect for late-night studying or just a get-together with your fellow hunters.

I'm not certain I did everything right, because my first impression was mainly spice and a flash of berry, followed by the faintest hint of flowers. All great, but not a lot to it. I'll update when I have tried again!

Tastes smooth like nebulae dust and an offered, friendly hand. Perfect for adventuring or just curling up in a warm blanket while the cold wind whooshes outside. Definitely happy I bought a huge tin of this one.

Tastes like a bolt of energy between the ribs on a warm summer night. The mint smells overpowering at first, but it gives way to the green chai once steeped, while still leaving a chill on your tongue reminiscent of a last breath.

This was the tea that sold me on Earl Grey. This tea tastes like kindness and rougeishness, with a hint of sadness and the wild thrown in. It is a liquid hug, the knowledge that someone believes in you.

This tea tastes like tinsel and everything Christmas, with none of the stereotypical flavors that generally accompany a Christmas tea. More aesthetic than taste. I love it.

Perfect for a movie marathon or a crisp autumn afternoon. Less pumpkin than spice, but comforting and brave all the same.

This tea is like a hug from the captain himself. Smooth, inviting, with a sprightly grin of cinnamon that dominates its features and soothes a bad day. It's definitely a go-to for me.

Dark, smooth, and easy on the senses, this tea exemplifies the warmth and sweetness for which hufflepuffs are known. Perfect for an autumn night of movie watching with friends, or a companion as you bustle about to make yourself dinner.

This tea gives you the kind of warm feeling associated with eating lunch outside on a hilltop with your mates, enjoying the rare sunshine and a break from inter-house competition. Brings to mind the very best of slytherin.
