Before I get into how this tea tasted, I added this as a new entry even though there’s a generic Crystal Malt one—they come in 3 different levels, so I thought it’d be easier to have an entry for each one. This is 120, apparently the maltiest of all.

Like the barley/corn I cold brewed this for about an hour. It brewed to a lighter color than the barley/corn teabag, but I could tell by the smell that it was done already. I’ve mentioned this, but I LOVE that these brew up into strong iced tea so quickly AND they resteep! It’s so convenient.

This is unlike any tea I’ve ever tasted. Well, it’s a tisane I suppose, but you know what I mean! It is so savory, like roasted corn and wheat. The smell reminds me of fresh baked croissants! It’s also very nutty and rich. However, while it’s really savory it’s also surprisingly sweet. The malt taste is really strong, like a malted milk ball without the chocolate, and there are caramel/honey notes as well. It’s so intriguing, I just can’t stop sipping it!

You could probably email them to ask about Canadian shipping, the guy who runs the site is really helpful!

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
