Thanks to tea-sipper for this one! It’s really quite the tasty dessert tea. It’s a little nutty and chocolatey, and I can definitely say that I like it a lot! It’s tasty with milk and sugar. I’ve had two lovely cups of it and have just enough for one more. The flavors aren’t super strong, but they’re really nice.

This one sounds tasty. I’ve been going back and forth on an S&V order and now I may need to consider this tea to add haha!

AJRimmer

They’re my favorite company, so I definitely have recommendations if your order isn’t large enough already :P my favorites are snickerdoodle, apple cinnamon french toast, candy cane, blueberry cinnamon crumble, and carrot cake cupcake, to name a few!

Courtney

Hahah thanks! I have most of these in my order actually (save for candy cane because I’m not huge on mint). I’m waiting to see if they do anything for Black Friday because the shipping and rate exchange to Canada is bleh.

AJRimmer

Excellent choices (: I definitely get that! There are several Canadian/international companies I’d love to order from, but those shipping prices hurt!

Courtney

Right? Sigh. Which Canadian companies did you have in mind?

I also had chosen: Almond Sugar Cookie Black, Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake Black, Coconut Macaroon Rooibos, Winter Wonderland Rooibos, Chocolate Orange Rooibos, Decaf French Vanilla Black, Pumpkin Spice Black (most of the rooibos and decaf options are for my partner). :)

Yasss AJRimmer I loved all of those from the advent! Though I’m not sure if I tried Carrot Cake… Their green rooibos blends are so good.

@Courtney – Almond Sugar Cookie is a good one for sure. I’m trying to remember what Winter Wonderland was…

Courtney

Yaas! I had it many years ago and went back to check my note haha!

AJRimmer

Ooo I’ve tried most of those, but a few are still on my list! I want to try all their teas one day (:

The Canadian companies I still need to try are Dessert by Deb and Totalitea. I just emailed the latter to see if their free shipping barrier applies to the US as well because I have a large cart ready to go, but there’s no way I’ll pay $45 to ship it.

Courtney

I’ve never tried either of those, but that shipping is truly insane. The Totalitea I had never heard of but when I looked it up I see it’s in the city I’m currently in haha.

AJRimmer

There are so many tea shops in my city, and I haven’t been to any of them! I’m a bad tea fan!

Courtney

Haha I am also that way! I mean, there’s just no way I would go now, but even beforehand I just always ordered online!

Bio

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
