drank English Toffee by Simpson & Vail
701 tasting notes

I have come to the realization that S&V does dessert teas well. Quite well actually. I was sitting here sipping away at this, and next thing I know, it’s gone.

This was very tasty. Not overly sweet, but sweet enough. For some reason it was reminding me of Maple Pecan Oolong in the last few sips, but I have a feeling that’s because I just read a tea note on that tea haha. I may have to make another cup and update this note.

That’s good to know! Now that I figured out you can get better shipping to Canada if you call the order in, I’ll have to place an order in the spring!

Courtney

Gah! I just started an online cart, I have to stop all these tea orders!

Sil

cavo… dont forget ME if you do…

Cavocorax

I’ll try not to! It won’t be for a while though, but I’ll make a note in my spreadsheet somewhere. :)

And Courtney – if you try and order online the min shipping will say $30 to Canada, but if you call it in it’ll start at $9. Otherwise you can place the order, and then email them to refund the difference. I haven’t tried it yet, but I emailed them and that’s what they told me.

Sil – I think if I order from somewhere “rare” in the US like that, I’ll give you a heads up first.

Courtney

Yes, I know Jessi emailed them a while ago about shipping and it began at $9. I will have to give them a call to place this order. I have the worst self-control when it comes to tea.

Sil

Cavo – if we do it later, we can use sharon too. Only reason a shared order would be really nice is because of their sizes. it’s sad but 2 oz is just so much. 1 is better LOL

I’m making an order with S&V this weekend, and having it shipped to my US tea place. Just a matter of waiting to see if they do anything more outrageous than just free shipping over $25. Happy to add if anyone wants me to, and then send it over. I’ve got two other folks in on that order already… :)

Courtney

I’d love to get on board MissB!

OMGsrsly

MissB, you are SUCH an enabler.

I think I need to change my handle on Steepster to, “The Enabler”. :)

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
