MMmmm strawberry!
Not as distinct as the orange version. A little more generic than that. Still, it was pleasant and a perfect balance of tea vs flavour. I swear, the day I bump into this brand at a store… well let’s just say my cupboard will be in trouble. and my wallet.

is this a russian tea?

Plunkybug

I have seen it at my local Bulk Barn.

Indigobloom

Kirkoneill – I’m not sure. Could be!
Plunkybug – Oh bulk barn, the most wonderful evil place haha

Kirkoneill1988

bulk barn sells tea?! :O

Plunkybug

Yes, they even sell loose tea!

Kirkoneill1988

wow… Canadian bulk barns right?

Indigobloom

Kirk, yup Canadian Bulk Barns. It isn’t the best quality though. They keep it in clear containers and it tends to be a bit crunchy. Still worth a look!

Kirkoneill1988

Indigobloom

Oh man this is good!! Another one from the travelling tea box.
At first I was skeptical. Surely this one would be too much for me. But it is super pleasant!
Other reviews are so right. With a splash of milk, it’s just perfect. Spicy, refreshing, and brisk. Quite astringent mind you. My mouth is super dried out feeling.
Still, if I see this in a store, I’m gettin it!!!

OMGsrsly

I really enjoyed this one too. :) In fact, I think I might still have a packet. I’ll have to dig through my box… Set it out for tomorrow!

Indigobloom

I think there is one more in the box… very tempting haha

Another one from the box!
Black tea. Orange flavouring. A bit fake but tasty nonetheless. Kindof like a lollipop. More like orange creamsicle when cooled off.
I dig it.
Extra points because most fruit black teas lose their mojo for me when they cool down. Not this one! noms

Kirkoneill1988

scoot over! i shall try this one too :D (someday hopefully)

From MissB! Thank you! (also a sipdown, whee!)

This tea is so good, IDEK. With milk, it’s just amazing. Strong base, WOW cardamom, dash of milk to even anything out (not that it really needs it, I don’t think), and yum.

… and I’m sitting here thinking I should have sent my last bag to Dexter. Sorry! But if you see this in a grocery store, get it. It’s actually really nice!

Sil

is this one from the other box?

OMGsrsly

The TTB from before she left. :D You can get it in various international/eastern european shops. I know I’ve seen it before, I’ve just never bought any.

Plunkybug

I think I might still have some…I can check and send to her if you want, or send to you with the other stuff, and you can send out when you have more.

A sample from MissB! Thank you. :)

This is really really good. It’s exactly what it says it is – a cardamom black tea. Nice and strong, very spicy, amazing with a splash of milk.

I really like it, and if I was in the market for a cardamom tea I’d totally hunt this down and buy some. As it is, I have Too Many Teas. ;)

join the club :D

When/if you decide to look for it. It can be found lately at bulk barn, Metro ( or whatever subsidiary is around you), among others. It hasn’t been to hard to find lately. The strawberry one is pretty good too!

OMGsrsly

High fives, TeaBrat! It’s an interesting club to be sure.

yyz, I was just going to say we don’t have a bulk barn here, but apparently we do! Just in a pain-in-the-butt location to bus to. :)

Kittenna

Would mixing green cardamom pods (or ground cardamom) with black tea have a similar result?

TeaBrat

@Kittena, I have used dessicated cardamom with good results, not sure about the pods. The powder is super fine and might just make a mess in your tea.

yyz

I just crack the green pods and added them to good result. It’s not quite the same flavour as this tea though.

OMGsrsly

I’ve done cardamom powder in coffee before so I’m sure it would work.

Grabbed this at a Middle Eastern Market in the Mission while I was in San Francisco. I’d say this is really coffee-like with zero coffee in it – although that may be because my son’s grandparents put cardamom in their coffee grounds prior to brewing. (Try it, it’s delicious!) Rich, full, heavy and thick tea, and surprisingly tasty for bagged.

Flavors: Cardamon, Thick

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML
TeaBrat

oh, I love cardamom. do you remember the name of the market or where it was? :)

MissB

I can’t seem to find the name of it. It was right on Mission, along the less, er, nice side of the street, just past the 24th & Mission BART station. So my horrible directions… it’s almost directly across the street from the soda shop on Mission. Oh wait, I think I found it on Yelp. Samiramis Imports, 2990 Mission Street (between 26th and 25th).

TeaBrat

groovy, thanks!

drank Strawberry Tea by Alokozay

This has a pretty nice strawberry flavour, tart, bright and fairly natural. Tastes convincingly like fresh strawberry. The flavouring is pretty strong over a light Ceylon base. The tea was more bop size rather than the dust you usually find in bags, faintly astringent and enough body to give the tea depth, but it`s flavouring is pretty lost to the flavouring. I taste just a bit of bitterness underneath. The tea has enough depth that it could take milk. Not bad for a tea I only bought so that I could meet the minimum for debit!
