Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for this deliciousness!

I’ve had two chocolate strawberry teas in a row – this one won the contest! (Although I still prefer Love Tea #7)
There is a slight sour note from the flavouring, or maybe the base, but that passes quickly and creates a nice dessert tea! Good chocolate flavour and the strawberry is strong, can’t be missed! The scent is just heavenly – I wish it came out in the taste a bit more!

For my second steep, I added a tiny pinch of rose congou – mmm much better! I love a bit of rose in my chocolate/fruit teas. I rounded it out with some vanilla and milk – very tasty!

I have been very impressed with Culinary teas for the most part! I wish the shipping to Canada wasn’t so crazy ; 3;

that’s why I haven’t ordered tea from some places, the shipping is just too much. I think it was $26 or something… I can’t remember.

DaisyChubb

It’s true! Being in Canada definitely has its perks, but price of shipping isn’t one of them

Helena

Butiki Teas was $6 I think and Verdant Tea was free because I hit the $35 mark which is a lot better than most places where it’s $50. The smaller companies have it hard so I don’t mind paying a bit. I always choose free ground shipping whenever possible to save money :D

Helena

I’m Canadian too so I feel your pain :D luckily we are getting some things now that we didn’t before. Netflix Canada actually posted some current movies/tv shows so we’re not as far behind as we were :D

DaisyChubb

Yes! Netflix! I try not to look at what the US Netflix has because I get jealous, but yay for fairly updated movies!

Butiki & Verdant are amazing and can always have my money :D

Helena

they put up all 5 seasons of Primeval, first season of BBC’s Sherlock, the first 2 seasons of The Glades and I forget what else. Not enough to cancel cable yet but getting there :D

Helena

Butiki Teas I will order from again & again because the tea is great and I like Stacy. Verdant tea people seem really nice I just can’t say most of their teas’ names… I’ll know more when I taste theirs I picked up the phoenix chai, laoshan black, laoshan village chai, and imperial breakfast. I’m going to pull from my vacation fund to cover the tea since I’m not going anywhere this year :D

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
