Thank you, VariaTEA. :)
Tea of my childhood. I can’t believe I used to steep this forever and put in heaping spoons of honey. Holy moley. It is SO sweet. Cinnamon-vanilla-spice tea.
Definitely off my shopping list at this point, but I’m so glad I had an opportunity to try it again! :)
I have this in my paws thanks to the lovely Dinosara. Thank you so much!
I steeped this super short. 2×3o seconds mostly to flavour some water. It’s tulsi and that root beer tree (sa… Whatever it is.) and a bit of toasty earthiness in the background.
This tulsi is super strong. Almost licorice or fennel flavoured.
And now I’m at work. So thank you again for the lovely teas. I’ll do more steeps of this when I get home and also edit this note because I’m having typing issues on my phone right now. :/
Holy moley! Dinosara sent me a HUGE package! O.o Thank you SO much, that was entirely unexpected. I love the bags you packed everything in.
So because I still have a migraine and I need to head to work now, I thought I’d start with this. Hot, in almond milk, with a little honey.
Doesn’t smell as good as Redberry Tonic from DavidsTea, which is my other “Sea buckthorn” sniffing experience. It’s really green. Green grassy. I’m guessing some of that will be the matcha.
Whisking it into water, it didn’t froth nearly as much as other flavours have. In fact, it was difficult to get any froth. Interesting…
Actually, I don’t need the honey. This is a sweet, grassy, almond milk latte. I know that to some that sounds unappealing, but I’m quite enjoying it right now.
This smells so good! Fruity candy deliciousness. It smells like something I’ve sniffed recently, too. IDK what though.
I’m really getting cherry from it.
Oh wow, this tastes so good! For me, it is verging on perfume, but it doesn’t really matter because it’s tasty.
Thanks so much, VariaTEA! I definitely need to keep this company in mind. :)
A sample from Fjellrev! It was the Tea On Top today, so I picked it. :) Lucky tea.
It’s pretty tasty! Really gentle flavours, although they are strong they aren’t IN YOUR FACE or super duper sweet. It is a sweet tea, but it’s not like ahem teavana.
Really, really nice. I could totally see picking some of this up the next time I visit Nanaimo.
Thank you! :)
And that’s it for the samples MissB so kindly shared. Boo!
Things to know:
- it resteeps well.
- it’s fun to tell people you’re drinking “O’Connor’s Cream”.
- it’s amazing with whisk(e)y.
- it’s also amazing with nothing. :)
Also: OMG!!! There were SO MANY NOTES on my page that I had to scroll and scroll and scroll and skim and read comments and ACK! Y’all drink a LOT of tea!
Oh tea with the ridiculously giggle-causing name, you are SO good.
Tonight, with a bit of Jamieson’s (because it’s in the cupboard), some maple syrup and a touch of coconut milk.
I know, I know. All those additives might hide the flavour. BUT THEY DON’T! It just amps up the delicious sweet honey chocolate booze notes in the tea. YUM.
Definitely on my shopping list.
Marco Polo, why have I treated you so wrong? Lost in the back of my tea cupboard, I found you this morning.
Yum yum. Fruity, vanilla, floral. The lower temp (an accident – I was impatient) worked well. A touch of honey, and I have delicious tea.
(Tasting note 900! Wow.)
