Attention everyone, this is how you do a creamy strawberry black tea! When you open the bag, there are huge chunks of strawberry pieces throughout and its like dipping your nose in a strawberry smoothie – the smell is that incredible. On the first sip you get that creamy-custardy-strawberry (or Zabaglioney) taste, which rounds off nicely with more strawberry. More strawberry! Heaven. And the tea base just kinda sits back and lets the flavours do their thing, which is grand. Can this tea last forever? Please? Please!

Dreamsicle Darjeeling, you dream! The orange creaming soda overwhelms you as soon as you rip open the foil bag, which instantly made my mouth water. Of course the flavour of the brewed tea didn’t disappoint at all, this is perfection in a cup! And how delicious would this be iced? I don’t know as its currently 5 degrees outside, but I imagine it would be just as good (if not better).
As an aside, I wish darjeeling was used more in flavoured blends. I think the characteristics of the tea could lend themselves well to certain flavours. Especially this one!

I’m so looking forward to this one! I’ve been ruminating on it forever and just ordered it today—can’t wait!

A predictably disappointing oolong from this teabag. I had to laugh when I ripped open said teabag to find some unidentifiable mulch. There is a peach aroma with an orange flavour, but I don’t think bagged fannings of oolong leaves really work.

Oolong in a teabag is just weird to me.

This flavour combination grabbed my interest after trying one of Robert Wemischner’s tea frappes (oolong, mango and apriums). Unfortunately this stunning blend is really let down by the weird mulched tea “leaves”. The mango taste is apparant straight away, with the creamy coconut lingering afterwards. Can someone please make this blend with proper tea?

such spoiled potential :(

With mint being such an overpowering beast, I think its difficult to blend sucessfully with other flavours. With this bagged oolong you get mostly mint, followed by a hint of chocolate on the back of your tongue. Probably the best out of the bagged Stash oolongs I’ve tried, the minty chocolate seems to work well with those strange mulched tea leaves. I really can’t imagine it working with a decent oolong though…
