Bought this one as Mulberry Monster – spooooky. What better to drink on Halloween?

I need more herbal teas as I’m trying to limit the amount of caffeine I consume in a day, and I picked up 40g on a whim after I smelled the dry sample in store. I’ve never had mulberry before, but the dry leaves smell so good! Fruity, nutty and sweet as well.

Figures – this is another one that smells different once you brew it. I’ve been caught by this before and should know better! Luckily (for me), it tastes GREAT, even if the liquor is murky and ugly.

It was really good as I sipped it hot, but I got caught up with a bunch of Halloween things, and am now sipping it cold – it’s still really good. I can mostly taste the nuts but it works really well. Some reviewers are comparing this blend to cookies and cake – I can’t say that I’m getting that, but I do appreciate the sweet nutty flavours in this and I like being able to drink an herbal tea that isn’t super fruity.

I drank the whole pot! Seems like it got nuttier as I got to the end.

I only used 1.5 tsp for the entire thing and that was enough. No sweetener required!

This one is a bit more expensive than I’d like ($9 for 50g) so I might not be able to justify keeping it in the cupboard all the time. We’ll see how long my 40g lasts…

I’m running out of caffeine-free options in my tea cupboard, perhaps I should check this one out?

Maybe you’ll like it? I’ve never had a tea that was nutty like this before so your mileage may vary.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
