219 Tasting Notes
Did not find this listed and did not want to add it since I don’t know much about it. Karamell by Qualitatstee,TraceyC got this while visiting Germany and I loved the idea of trying something I can not get easily. This caramel tea reminds me of the beerbutter I’ve been drinking up lately but better because it is smoother. Way too sweet for me this morning but it does have nice caramel flavor. I would take the rest but I’d rather leave it for someone else.
It smells so caramely sweet that I don’t drink it very often. I’m not sure if it is actually sweet or just seems that way because of the scent. When brewed it taste like strong burnt caramel in the good kind of way but still seems way to sweet for me most days. I’ve found the perfect way to help me finish the ounce I have left, 1/2tsp of this added to 1tsp of black tea. I love it this way perfect amount of creamy burnt caramel to my black tea of choice.
It smells wonderful, my first thought was that I wanted a candle that smells like this before realizing they sell one :) I’m so disappointed in this though, all I get is flavored water not even sure what flavor. I wish I knew what to do with it to make it better, so many people love this tea.
I have a small pumpkin addiction, I bought so much pumpkin spice items last year I was sick of it by the time Thanksgiving came and even Christmas and it lasted throughout the summer. So, I was sure it would not be that bad this season but I was wrong it has come in full force this past weekend. Items we have had so far this year all pumpkin/pumpkin spice: glade, toaster strudel, cookies, candy, muffins, english muffins, cereal bars, Tazo tea, soda, 2 different kinds of yogurt, 5 different beers and I’m sure I forgot something.
Thank you Cameron B. for helping my curiosity on this one.
Oh boy! Do I have problems, when searching for this on steepster I noticed DAVIDsTEA has new pumpkin tea coming soon? Pumpkin cheesecake and Pumpkin patch!
Marco Polo TTB
Yay, My first taste of Whispering Pines! I was so excited when I found out this would be in the box. It’s such a special tea I would not expect to find it in just an ordinary TTB. I’m very grateful to have a chance to try it. I already planned on getting some the next time I’m allowed to buy more tea (November), this sample just helped make the amount I would buy go up.
Yummy, Yummy, Vanilla bread tea. I read I should try it with shortbread, so I did and although it was delicious I felt like I was wasting the tea and think I will drink and savor each sip on its own for special days in the future.
My son wanted to dip his cookie in his tea but could not because it was in a large mason jar and his tea was almost gone so I let him use my tea, I did not think about how it would ruin my cup and turn it salty with cookie crumbs on the bottom I was just thinking it would be a nice way to share the special tea with him. I will look for the chocolate next time and not let my son stick his cookie in it.
Bonus* I was lazy and left the leaf in the steeper over night and just rinsed it out before adding black tea in the morning. Pleasantly surprised to find leftover vanilla flavor in the first two steeps of morning tea :)
