This tea was a bit of a surprise to me.
About four of us went ahead this past weekend and placed our first order with The Tea Haus. I have never tried their teas before but was dying to. The prices alone made me feel like I needed to try it.
The smell of this one is DEVINE! It smelt good enough to eat. It was sweet and creamy smelling. Even my husband wanted to try it, so I made a large steeper full of it and steeped it for the three minutes they recommend.
He wasn’t a huge fan of it; said it smelt better than it tasted (which in some ways I understand). But I’m also the type that adds the milk and sugar to my tea, (Just skim milk, nothing too heavy) so to me it tasted wonderful. I felt it was kinda similar to Check Mate from DavidsTea. Only difference is Check Mate is a bit more subtle then this one. But this one is so delicious! I think I may have to order more of it. It is amazing.

I’m very excited about my new find of The Tea Haus. I think I’m going to have a lot of happy ordering happening in the future with them. And too, since it’s not too far from home, I may have to pop in there when I’m in town.

Bio

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
