8166 Tasting Notes
Picked this one up at the Toronto tea festival this past weekend and i’m happy that i did. As Kittenna pointed out, i have an obsession with all teas that are creamsicle like in nature. I have to say that this one is pretty decent. As a herbal, it’s nice to drink something that isn’t all about being “berry like” (al la red berry variety) while there is a citrus component to it, it just enhances the orange flavour. The vanilla brings out a little of the sweetness and turns it in to a creamy delight. My only complaint is that i wish it was a little more intense. That aside, super happy i decided to try this based on the smell and that it didn’t disappoint. Of course, now i wish i’d picked up more! haha

OMG with all the samples in my cupboard I really need to get my drink on. I finished this one off today for a good tea to get back in to work with. I was on training for the last 2 days of work so it feels like i’ve been gone forever. Sad to see this one go but also a little happy for the sipdown haha
I had the black tea version of this one at the tea festival and loved it. So i figured i might as well also try the rooibos blend for late night chai. Made a batch of it this evening to try it out and it was delicious. Lacking a little bit in the depth behind the spices compared to the black one, but still exactly what i wanted. :)

Tried this one out today but puppy interrupted my tea drinking with a need to to go play outside with friends. So MOST of this cup was had relatively cold lol I’ll write a better review when i get another chance to drink it hot, but cold it was a nice cup – smooth without any bitterness, good way to start the day!
Need to spend some time with my cupboard this weekend to package up some teas for Evol Ving Ness as there are a few of us meeting up tomorrow. I also have to figure out where my cupboard is sitting at the moment since it’s almost the end of the month :) This is a sipdown as the last little bit will go to evol to try out. I’ve enjoyed this one, so no complaints here.
