Thanks Roswell for this one.

Darn hungry steepster, eating or should I say drinking all of my tea notes.

Dry, this tea doesn’t smell like much, brewed this tea smells deliciously fruity and sweet, very red berry.

The brewed tea tastes like light white tea. I am getting notes of sweet plum and strawberries. After reading the description of this tea, I guess I could be tasting sweet red currant along with sweet lemon. Not necessarily champagne, but still good. It is a bit astringent in the aftertaste. I am very impressed with this blend.

This is definitely my favourite from Tea Desire – I’m glad you seem to have liked it.

I like this one too, especially when it’s fresh. :)

I actually went into Tea Desire to buy more of this since I’m getting kinda low already, and they were all out. Apparently it’s really popular, and the other day someone came in and bought 450g of it. Just thought I’d add that here, in case either of you maybe found it funny or interesting.

Glad to know it’s popular! I just wish there was a Tea Desire in Victoria, and the one in Edmonton keeps shutting down and relocating. :/

Profile

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
