Pu-erh seems to make my tummy feel better. Or, maybe it was just an excuse to have this delicious tea?

My stomach has bugged me for the past few days… and today it’s come to a head. :( So, I’m drinking a huge mug of this to help settle things down.

It’s still working for me (when I had this last night, anyway), although it’s still far from what I want it to be, I still find it delicious.

Made this last night again, because it’s just that darn good. Was a lovely treat waiting for me after I got home from hanging with a few friends. Always delicious!

drank Dubbele Chocolade by Della Terra Teas
1344 tasting notes

I grossly oversteeped this accidentally (around the 10 minute mark) so I had low expectations for this tea, and had planned to dump it. Surprisingly, it held up well to the oversteep, and I’m still getting delicious chocolate flavoring out of it. I’m unsure if it’s my error or the tea, so I’ll have to try again soon, however there is something off in this blend. The chocolate feels, tastes… weird. Something almost chemical about it.

Yeah, I find that their chocolate tends to be on the artificial/chemical side. :/

I would try it one more time. I really enjoy this one.

Hahah!!!! I have been eying this one and with that statement I guess I need to add it to my “must try” list:)

It’s very, very good. Well, all of Butiki’s teas are.

drank Bamboo Integrity by Zen Tea

Maybe it’s me. I’m confused. Most of my teas tonight (save one or two) have been… off to me. I mean, they’re good, just missing something über yummy that I normally really enjoy. This was one of those teas. Normally, I really enjoy this. Tonight? Just meh.

drank Walnut Ave (Sweet Macaron) by Tealish
1344 tasting notes

So, I get this is a tea named after the street Tealish started on. Still, wouldn’t they, you know, use a walnut-based tea for this? Honestly, I picked this up and thought it would be like Nutty Enough or something instead of a tropical drink that it (seems to be) aiming for.

First off, I overleafed significantly, based on other reviews. I also brewed it at a low temperature for the same reason. It looks odd brewed up; I used a paper filter and yet it’s… chunky? Hard to describe. Thick. Velvet. Hard to see through.

I had to add a touch of stevia to this, and that’s when it really, really perked up. I get luscious, velvety, deep coconut with a pineapple twinge mid-way and well after the sip. I could see this being spectacular cold, with some booze added to it.

EDIT: Uh, okay. So there are supposed to be walnuts in here? I saw zero in my bag.

Ah, boo. I underleafed this one; used only 1 tsp for a 8 ounce cup. I LOVE Della Terra’s samples (I think I maxed out on their sample offerings my first order, and am still working through them). I just wish they had steeping instructions on them.

Having said that, this is DELICIOUS. I seem to strongly favor DT’s chocolate blends and a few herbals OMGsrsly shared with me, and kinda feel meh about pretty much everything else that has that ‘pancake syrup trying to be maple syrup’ flavor to it.

Really though, try this. The salted caramel is bang on, and kinda sorta blew my mind. Reminded me of the gelato I get when I’m on Salt Spring, when I mix their dark chocolate with salted caramel, and get only awesomesauce explosions of sweetness and salt in my mouth.

This sounds amazing. Shopping list!

Now I’m sad I didn’t put this in the sampler I ordered! Next time, maybe.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Just got back from a six month exploration of Western Europe, so I’ve got some pretty lovely tea that we just can’t easily find this side of the pond. Woot!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time exploring, playing board games, reading, hiking, hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, although for some reason the French seem to have figured out how to do this without making me ill. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
