drank English Toffee by Simpson & Vail
740 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 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, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

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

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