This would be better with some Cavalla added for REAL chocolate flavour!

Otherwise, this is a decent chocolatey coconutty tea, better with milk than without.

I’m probably going to keep a tbsp or so and send the rest in the box. I think it’s worth trying, although it’s not a favourite.

Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut

Preparation

backlog!

Last of this finished up yesterday while the other half and i got in a tv show and dinner. I try really hard to make sure that even if i’m working like nobody’s business during the week, i shut down on friday at a reasonable time, and spend a relaxing evening with my other half not thinking about work. I may get up at 7am the next day to finish work but i need that evening to take time to reconnect with him and just unplug from all the work frustration. So this + tea AND to bed “earlier” than i have been, means i may survive this weekend lol

So I am super confused by the popcorn in this blend because I don’t really think it adds anything. With that said, this is still a very nice maple tea. It has cinnamon in it which couples nicely with the sweet maple. I enjoy it and wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered but I don’t think I would seek it out either. If I am being honest, if I were to get any maple tea from Vancouver it would probably be Maple Seduction from Steam but this is a pleasant alternative and one I am very grateful to Sil for the chance to try.

Another one from earlier today – love that creamy deliciousness :)

I ended up mixing all of this with CB because the combo is just so much better! And, now it only takes up ONE spot in my cupboard. Bwahahah.

Cold steeped about 24 hours before I remembered about it. Oops?

Oh well, it’s still good. It’s a hibiscus based fruit tea with moderate orange-ness, and a kick of chili. Goes well with Kapha Organic.

i love friday nights. They are typically the one night a week guaranteed for E and i to relax and take a deep breath after long weeks and before the craziness of the weekend sets in with work or running around with friends. Played some Terra Mystica while having a few cups of tea tonight and it was fantastic. i love this tea because it’s limey and a little spicy and just downright yummy. now if only after a year and a half bayswater ACTUALLY did something with their website…

JustJames

OMG!!!!! their website! dun dun duuuuuuuuuun. i am stunned =0(

Sil

yeah and it’s not up to date…and they’ve been saying for like 2 years they’re “almost ready to launch an ecommerce site”

OMGsrsly

It’s so frustrating. Even living in the same city, just being able to browse before I went in would be amazing.

Bear With Me

when you say “limey and a ‘little’ spicey” how limey to spicey are we talking? lots of lime with a bit of a punch, just enough lime to be a lime tea with a real kick of ginger, etc?

OMGsrsly

Needs more ginger. I can start another “box” for you, Bear With Me. :)

Sil

it’s just got a bit of a kick…most ppl who can stand spicy things would probably not notice this much

Bear With Me

I’ll send my sister to get me some while she’s over there next week :) there’s a few I want to try and I need to top up on grapefruit EG again (already. oops)

OMGsrsly

Mmm, grapefruit EG. I totally forgot about that one the last time I was in.

Bear With Me

it’s one of my favourite iced teas this year apparently. Only EG other than DAVIDs (now dc’d) Earl of Lemon that I like cold. I blame the punchy citrus.

Sample sipdown from OMGsrsly, my second creme brûlée tea of the night.

It’s a pretty potent tea. I definitely get that slightly bitter burnt caramel note.

It’s a very heady dessert tea that I wouldn’t mind having a small quantity of, but nothing I would want to drink regularly. I’d probably add a bit to my cart if I was ever going to place an order but I wouldn’t place an order just for this.

Thanks for sharing, OMGsrsly!

Sil

this + cream from teaG or divine temptation smooths the burnt note out and makes it delicious!

JustJames

drat…. might have to explore this company…….

Sil

james – they have some really nice things and some icky things.

Amariel

I do love this and divine temptation.

nom nom nom nom flavoured tea of the day from earlier, along with creme brulee. so love mixing the two together – this adds an element that cuts down on the intensity of the creme brulee for me. I still need to make more of these as lattes though heh

So I have tried (and loved) both of these two teas separately. However, I liked them so much, I never got to try out OMGsrsly’s beloved combination of the two since I drank them up too quickly on their own. Luckily, Cavocorax was sweet enough to share some of the preblended mix so I wouldn’t be tempted to drink them separately again.

Honestly, this is VERY good. At first I am noticing the delicious creme brulee sugar crust – all warm and gooey and amazingly glazed. As I continue to sip, the sweet nougat appears and coats your mouth so that when you are all done, it is almost as if you had a tasty dessert treat. Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this with me! I look forward to trying this as a latte next :)

Cavocorax

Right? They should really sell it like this. Also they should REALLY just sell tea online. Someone should just link the page of Bayswater reveiws to the vendor so they can see the demand!

VariaTEA

It would be pretty awesome if they sold it online. I really want more of both the teas. Tbh, this is good but I think I would prefer having them separate just so I can decide if I want one, the other, or the two together.

OMGsrsly

I mix them 25g at a time, because I have a 50g tin dedicated to this tea. :) So there’s almost always unmixed teas in the cupboard as well.

And yes, it would be super great if they would sell online. Seriously, drop down menus and paypal links. Ta-da!

Today this was really nice. the peppercorns made it much spicier than normal so it was a happy time for me. Not as much ginger as i wanted, but given the peppercorns it still had kick. I need to remember to a) cold brew this tomorrow and b) add a little honey to see how that brings out the flavours.

Final Count: 182 [70 samples = fake cupboard at 112 with a week and a half to go! 1 tea from October left in my cupboard and 4 from December…not too shabby, figure maybe 110 by the time july rolls around at this rate heh]

OMGsrsly

Remember you have a parcel coming from meeee! :)

Sil

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so many samples to get through.. lol

I forgot how much I liked this tea. It’s good! So good! Just add milk and you have a nice creamy, coffee-like substitute with cocoa notes in it. And maybe hazelnut? I’ll have to get more. Maybe someday Bayswater will ACTUALLY get their webstore going so that I can do so without relying on others to get it for me. :D

sooo how do you make this tea taste even better? Mix it with “cream” from tea gscwe2nwhweriyw398y… that’s right. I did that today and it was deeeelicious. Adding the cream to this really brought out the creamier flavours and cut back on a little bit of the IN YO FACE that this tea has going for it sometimes. Overall, a really nice way to enjoy this tea as a non latte. :)

Courtney

“tea gscwe2nwhweriyw398y” :P

Sil

Lol I hate typing it…but realized the other day tea G might be taken for something else

OMGsrsly generously sent me a sample of this fruity herbal. I was curious about this one when the group visited Bayswater, but was too chicken to buy some at the time. Now that I’m into iced teas I’m even more grateful for the chance to try this, as it makes an awesome cold steep.

The flavours are predominantly citrus and cranberry with a tiny amount of cayenne pepper that is not always present. The overall effect makes a tart, sweet, and refreshing cup.

Flavors: Apple, Citrus, Cranberry, Hibiscus, Pepper

mmmmmmm…this one is growing on me, which is bad because omgsrsly has not yet succeeded in making steam have a REAL ecommerce site…but if they did, losts of ppl would want this…and others. sigh

Courtney

This one is Bayswater silly. But delicious, yes.

Sil

riiight but whatever they both need ecommerce sites lol

OMGsrsly

Haha. I know, right?! Not even a horrible facebook one. And Bayswater seriously needs to update. When I went in a few weeks ago they said it was coming soon, but it’s been over a year since they first said that!

Dinosara

Haha I would totally order this one if they actually had an ecommerce site. But it’s probably better for me that they don’t (yet).

Sil

yeah…while i appreciate companies willing to ship if you email them..blah blah blah…. no thanks. make it easy or it’s not happening.

I had this tea hot again last night, and I really do prefer it this way. I finally got a kick of ginger nearing the bottom of my cup!

So I think I’ll hot steep the rest and pour it over ice/chill it in the fridge. Quite a tasty tea, especially with that ginger!

Funny, I just commented the other day that I’ve never tried a Bayswater tea before but last night when I was digging around in my sample basket I found this one from OMGsrsly!

I made it to drink while I finished up season one of SOA.

It tastes unique for sure….definitely sugary and a bit roasty and reminiscent of creme brûlée. I didn’t get the coffee feeling that everyone else mentions, but I have enough left to try another cup later.

Overall I enjoyed it! Thanks to OMGsrsly for sending along my very first Bayswater tea to try :)

Still digging this one a bunch. I’m happy that gambles paid off when I hit bayswater. Nt all the teas I picked were winners but a bunch have been great. I also haven’t even tried a huge number of them lol. I like that this one reminds me a little of lime gelato from David’s but is zippier!

Courtney

Gambles paying off is always awesome.

Cheri

This sounds good. Do you do it as a cold brew or hot?

Sil

both actually!
