So I guess this is a new Bayswater rooibos blend? I had to add it to the database and I can’t find any useful info online. The “ingredient list” on their website was more of a list of flavours. Anyway, the dry tea is very aromatic – I keep sniffing it and the only description I can come up with is “fruity and boozy”. The brewing directions on the label are pretty intense (“2 heaping tea measuring spoons for 1 cup of water. steep 10-15 min”) but I went with it. It brews up a nice reddish-orange colour. As I was tasting it, the fruity and boozy impression continued, because first it reminded me of… ok, you know when you’re making fruitcake and there’s the part where you soak a bunch of dried fruit and stuff in like, rum or something? That. Then I sipped it some more and I thought maybe it was more like mulled wine. So, fruity and spicy and boozy? It’s good. :) There a bit of tartness that makes me wonder if there’s a tiny bit of hibiscus in this blend, but it might just be the citrus, and it’s balanced by the sweet and spicy. It has “plum” in the name, and maybe that’s the only reason I’m getting plum notes, but if it’s just the power of suggestion it’s very effective.

I went back to inspect the dry tea a bit more closely. So, it’s mostly red rooibos, and the most obvious additions are these little dried orange (?) wedges, like a 1cm strip of orange peel but with a little triangle of orange attached, why is this so hard to describe. Anyway, there are also some big chunks of cinnamon stick, and some crystalline bits are definitely sugar of some sort, and some little chunks of what I think are dates.

I am confused but pleased by this tea. :)

Oh, this sounds really nice for a rooibos.

OMGsrsly

They haven’t actually updated their website in years. :/

Lindsay

The girl who helped me with my purchase did say “If you need more tea and can’t make it back to Vancouver, just email us! We can send you more of the ones you like, or if you tell us which ones you like we can recommend others that are similar”. So they seem open to sending tea by mail, even though the website is lacking.

OMGsrsly

Yes, they will definitely send stuff! But you might want to contact them to see if they have an updated product list. :)

I knew I’d like this one, but it’s nice to have it confirmed. I can definitely get cream and burnt sugar from this, but I see what people are saying about hazelnut coffee as well. :) Yet another nice dessert tea. I think I’ll have to make a cup of this and one of Divine Temptation and compare them directly.

OMGsrsly

Or mix them 50/50 for extreme deliciousness. :)

Fjellrev

Yeah, they excel at dessert teas. Happy to hear you like this one!

Lindsay

Oh I already know I like the combination. :)

MissB

Oh yes, a huge yum!

Inkling

This one sounds so yummy!

This is a really tasty variation on the classic Earl Grey. :) No big surprises here, it tastes like black tea, bergamot, and grapefruit. To me the grapefruit flavour smells pink and sweet, and it blends nicely with the overall citrus character of the bergamot. I haven’t tried it with sugar or milk yet (citrus + milk seems a bit weird to me… but then again, creamcicles), but lots of people have had luck with various additions so I might have to try that next. Thank you Steepster, for providing recommendations to make my tea-choosing a little easier. ;)

Took this to work in my new curve mug, which I am still worshipping btw.

I made it too sweet, and that made it a bit disappointing to finish. I don’t think sweet teas do well in travel mugs, because something about the flavours being “trapped” does something to the sweetness that in other contexts would be lovely, but kept in a travel mug can be quite cloying. That’s ok though: trial and error, right? It’s so frustrating, being the obsessive perfectionist that i am, to not “get it right” when I’m taking tea to go, because it’s not like i can make up for it. Oh well, I suppose we’ve all got bigger fish to fry. Anyway, I’m wondering if this isn’t the best travel mug tea, but would not ever change my opinion of this tea. I’m somehow nearly finished my 50 g and will track down some more once I’m done.

In other news, I’m going to the bluejay’s second playoff game on Friday! My husband is a huge, huge fan and gets seasons tickets each year, and so got first dibs on playoff tickets. So he’s going to all the games, and I get to go to one with him. Yaaaahhhh!!

Evol Ving Ness

Where in Toronto does one track down this tea? Or did you order it online? When I checked the company website, this particular tea was not available. So, do tell.

keychange

It’s actually based in Vancouver, and I had omgsrsly pick some up for me and bring it to Toronto when she came to visit. I do believe the company ships, though, which is how I’ll be getting my next batch, I think.

Fjellrev

I never thought of a travel mug doing that to sweetness but that makes so much sense. BUT. I will add sugar to my Grapefruit EG from Acquired Taste, which Bonny thinks comes from the same source, to step into your world and see what that would taste like.

I’m so ignorant. So wonder why people are going crazy over the Blue Jays right now. Playoffs! I have friends here in Alberta who are even flying to TO to watch the games, who I swear never talked about them before so I was wondering what the hype was all about.

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, keychange. I did check their website and am still not seeing it under Black Teas. I do see a gazillion other teas on their site that I would not be able to stop myself from putting on my order list though. And as I am way way way behind on getting through even a small bit of what I do have in stock here, I will wait a bit before I place an order.

keychange

Fgelrev, adding sugar to this tea tastes heavenly in a mug, and like an absolute tragedy in a travel mug. It is the only thing about travel mugs that I dislike. And evol, I know what you mean about not being able to resist many of their teas but needing to plow through more of your own stash first! As for the bluejays, my husband has been a dedicated fan for two decades now, and so this feels like his dream come true. His words: “The playoffs will be populated by true fans, because by the time the blue jays were doing well, play-off tickets had been offered to season ticket holders and were got by people who loved them even when they sucked.” :)

OMGsrsly

Evol, their site is AWFUL and has not been updated in years. I think it’s $4.75/50g.

Keychange, if you want more you can also let me know. I know how to ship parcels. ;)

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you, OMGsrsly.

Oh my god, what a morning. Last night, I thought I’d save myself all sorts of time by setting out today’s clothes in advance (remember how we were encouraged to do that as kids?). I even decided which teas I’d take to work and which I’d drink at home, and proudly went to bed.

Then this morning happened.

I woke up on time, and made this tea with breakfast. it was quite delicious, especially because I was worried it wouldn’t be as I was using a larger mug and had to adjust accordingly. So in 10 oz. of water, I used 2 tsp of leaf and a sizable pinch more, still a fairly generous puddle of cream, and 2 tsp of rock sugar because i find grapefruit to be very sharp otherwise. Brewed for four minutes, and it was a most excellent choice. Because of the combined sharpness of the grapefruit and the bergamot, it stands up to additions beautifully, and always manages to taste fresh and invigorating, which is exactly what you need on a Monday morning.

But then I started brewing my work tea, and stupidly started filling the travel mug with the lid still on it because I’m a tool (it was just the mesh lid, but still). Whatever, got over that and sorted it out. Then, I blasted around the house looking for my water bottle, which I was sure I’d brought home from work on Friday. But nope. Then the doorbell rings, and it’s my ride. Assure him I’ll be out in just a minute, abandon the water bottle, and harness up the dog and get on my shoes and coat. Decide I don’t have time to let him use the bathroom, and haul ass onto the bus. Sit down, and then realize I don’t have my cell phone. Feel like I now have sixteen disabilities instead of one. Send Mr. keychange back into the house to grab my phone, but he can’t find it so has to call it from the home phone and hunt it down. It was in the bathroom. He comes tearing outside, and off to work we go. Drop him off first, and then onto my work. Once i get here, I let myself and Arden (my guide dog) into the office, and then take him down the hall and outside a side door to relieve him, something I’ve done several times before. He goes to the bathroom like a boss, and then guided me back to the door beautifully. Only it’s locked. So we stand there stupefied for a while, and then walk around to another door, which is also locked. I’ve also only been here a short time, so I’m not familiar with like every door on campus, and the sound of the nearby highway also drowns everything out. So then we just stood there, and finally a wonderful human being walked by and we found another door together, but that was also locked. But then she sightedly saw people on the inside and waved at them to let us in, which they did.

So now I’m back in my office which is freezing, but man this morning was supposed to have gone so differently. hahaha! But this tea was an absolute winner.

Indigobloom

Hey atleast you had your outfit picked! :)

keychange

Yup! the important stuff!

Fjellrev

What a morning! The sad part is had you not planned your outfit ahead of time, this entire train of fail probably wouldn’t have happened in the first place. Oh, life.

Plunkybug

Wow! Crazy morning! My morning was sadly tea free as nearly all of my neighborhood was without power from 7:45 to 9:30, and there was a cougar loose on my street. Not quite as crazy as your morning though. :P

Holy shit. Last night, i was craving this tea, but I have a no caffeine after 3:00 rule, so I thought I’d wait until this morning. And oh my god, it was perfect. 1.5 tsp of leaf, used a generous amount of cream, two tsp of sugar, and brewed for four minutes. And I was blown away by how well this tea took the cream in particular. Both the grapefruit and bergamot were prominent, and the cream just amplified the latte-like thickness and comfort, but the zing of the grapefruit was not muted which was mind-blowing. I really hope this tea keeps well. I’m still on the hunt for the best tins in which to store tea. My ideal would be a tin where you can’t smell the tea from the outside, no matter how hard you try.

I know you guys know what it’s like to brew a perfect cup of something. Doesn’t always happen, but when it does, boy do you know it.

Preparation
1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
Dexter

I’m not sure this is the answer – but I have a gazillion Davids tins that aren’t perfect air tight. I put the tea into a ziplock bag — nothing fancy just the ones you buy at the grocery store – and then into the tin. I find it helps keep the scent in and clean up of the tin for re-use easier. :)

Marzipan

I do the same, bag plus tin.

keychange

Oh, I never thought of the bag+tin combo! great idea!

Christina / BooksandTea

Does the plastic affect the flavour of the tea? I might try that too.

Marzipan

I have never noticed an issue, if the tea comes in foil that doesn’t officially reseal, I usually fold it over a few times and tape it, then put it in the tin.

I don’t really like grapefruit, or grapefruit juice (why am I starting off my tasting notes by saying that I pretty much never expect to like things? hmmm). Anyway, I read the rave reviews for this tea, and also suspected that grapefruit and bergamot would pair really well together, as they are both quite crisp flavours. That said, it’s possible that they could have been too contradictory, but I somehow doubted it. Anyway, omgsrsly picked up some of this for me and brought it to the meet on Saturday. I decided that it would probably be a nice, kick in the pants tea, and when I woke up this morning and it was dark out and I felt as though it was the middle of the night and I would have offered up my soul to the devil to get some more sleep, I knew it might fit the bill.

Brewed up a tsp of leaf in 8 oz. of water, and added in my normal amount of milk and sugar. I have been halving the amount of sugar in my tea lately for some inexplicable reason, but I figured I’d go with the full amount as I’d read about how tart the grapefruit can be here, and combined with the bergamot, I knew I’d be in for a mouthful. Anyway, steeped it for four minutes, and it was delicious. The grapefruit and bergamot work amazingly well together, and I wouldn’t really say one drastically out shown the other. I couldn’t get too much of the base, but I’m not surprised, as it’s quite strongly flavoured. The tea (as with most teas I drink) tasted better as it cooled, and the milk made it taste oh so creamy. I can see myself reaching for this tea for a variety of reasons: in the winter when I need a brisk pick-me-up in the mornings; as a comfort tea to cozy up to with a good book; as a spring tea to awaken my senses. It is a fairly straight-forward tea with little in the way of nuance or surprises, and that’s just fine by me. I will have absolutely no trouble finishing off this bag, and depending on how often I reach for it, it may become a staple. Too early to say yet, though.

I know I just recently made a tasting note for this, but I feel like I needed to do another one just to jog my memory later and remind myself how much I really, really like this (memory, if you are reading this at a later date, take note!).
Each tea was really great on its own, but together they’re a total symphony in my mug…. the flavoured tea I could drink every day. :) Nutty, cookie-like, graham notes, hints of cooked caramel; I swear I can almost taste the crunchy, sugary top of some decadent dessert… It’s not sweet on its own, which I prefer in a tea….it’s just so, so perfect.
I even have a terrible headache at the moment (I don’t get headaches usually), and a period that makes me want to curl up into a ball and not unroll for three days… but, this tea is helping. It’s utter comfort!
So, I’ll go take my mug now and sit in a dark room and watch The Amazing World of Gumball with my kids….and drink this tea. :)

kieblera5

I love creme brulee :) I still haven’t had a creme brulee tea though.

Plunkybug

Yay! So happy you like these!

Plunkybug

The creme brûlée tea in this combo almost tastes like coffee with the burnt sugar, which is one reason this goes so well with divine temptation…it is almost like a hazelnut coffee.

See, this is where I go, “you don’t need more tea. really.”….
But, this combination of two teas sent to me by Plunkybug is honestly so good, and not really like anything I have in my cupboard right now. It has notes that remind me of Lupicia’s Cookie, but this blend of these two teas is just perfect… it’s that desserty, comforty kind of cup that I love when I’m in the mood for a flavoured tea.
Oh, man… I keep sipping and this is just SOO gosh darn good…
(no kate, you don’t need more tea….you can buy this someday….)

Plunkybug

I’m so glad you tried it! I think it might have been me that suggested it (and later tried it) when we were at Bayswater initially. And it just caught on. It is SO GOOD!

Just got the most lovely package in the mail from Plunkybug. Everything smelled so wonderful, it was really hard to pick which to try first.
I decided to go with this one, and it’s heavenly…
Nothing artificial or weird, just lovely and grahamy, and cookie like, and nougaty, and a little break of fabulous in my mug.
But it’s not overly sweet at all…just perfectly balanced.
I feel so lucky to have gotten the chance to try this. Thanks so much Plunkybug!!

boychik

hey, i was just thinking abt you last night :)

DeliriumsFrogs

I’ve been thinking about you! Do you know, I’m still using the perfume samples you sent me. ;)

DeliriumsFrogs

(haven’t been on steepster much at all; trying to avoid the want to buy more tea… you know, that want that turns into a need, and then your bank account is drained? lol)

Dexter

What teas do you NEED DeliriumsFrog? Can I help?

boychik

tell me abt it. IG is even worse. Feeding my teaware addiction

Plunkybug

So glad you like it. As I said in the FB post, try it with the Creme Brûlée too. I gave you enough of each to try individually, and to try blended. Also, I realized I forgot to double bag…oops. Hope it ended up ok still.

DeliriumsFrogs

OH, Dexter, you’re so wonderful! But really, I don’t NEED anything. And, you sent me SO MUCH before! :D
(I need to make myself come on here more often, I miss chatting in these little comment sections. haha)

DeliriumsFrogs

Plunkybug, don’t worry about it! Everything was packaged great! And, I’m definitely going to try them blended… yay!

DeliriumsFrogs

boychik, I can definitely see IG having the same effect on me. TEAWARE! There’s nothing better….

Cardboard? Yeah I kinda see it. but I don’t hate it.
Something about vanilla and coconut always has that profile, in my mind anyhow.
A dash of milk and a teeny bit of sugar make it uber creamy.
So while I wouldn’t run out and buy out the shop of this one… I wouldn’t turn down another cup! :)
Also, I don’t see much chocolate here. Or maybe that kind of chocolate that’s been so washed out that it tastes more like vanilla!!

CHAroma

Mmm, vanilla cardboard. :P

I found the Bayswater Tea Co while explore a cool neighborhood on West Broadway St in Vancouver. It’s a very multicultural neighborhood with strong Greek/Balkan/Persian vibes – so cool. The tea shop had an good selection of interesting blends, but I restrained myself from going too crazy (stop laughing) so I eventually decided on this tea. The smell drew me in right away – it reminded me of candied grapefruit. As it turns out, the grapefruit flavour is a bit too pungent for my tastes when the tea is plain, but with a splash of milk it turned into a wonderful, medium-strength cup of tea with a tangy, citrusy grapefruit flavour that’s almost juicy in nature. Much love.

Finished this one off today. Thanks again to OMGsrsly for the sample; it was yummy! I had no problem reaching for it this morning, and am a little sad to see it go. I think the various additions besides maple all support the maple and give it a depth of flavor that is sometimes lacking in single-flavor teas. Another nice offering from Bayswater!

As I alluded to before, now that I’m done with my sip-through of my cupboard I feel paralyzed with indecision over what tea to drink. My tea drinking was so prescribed for 4 months, and now I have to make a choice?!?!?

Last year at this point I decided to work on a few sipdowns, which is what I shall do again. This is not a sipdown but the penultimate cup of this tea. I almost didn’t drink it but then it smelled really yummy so I couldn’t resist. I accidentally forgot to take the brew basket out after my timer went off, so it was probably in for another minute or so. Fortunately, it does not seemed harmed by the experience. Not bitter or astringent, but there is definitely more cinnamon in this cup than there was in the first. Still, a very tasty cup and still very mapley.

OMGsrsly kindly sent me samples of a few teas back when she sent me the Divine Temptation, and I just never got around to trying them. I never even properly added them to my cupboard (I did later). Well, here they are now! Thanks OMGsrsly!

This one (#2) is really quite tasty. Very mapley. Maybe not so much taffy? But I don’t know how you would really distinguish “taffy” flavor. I don’t really get much in the way of distinct spices, which is kind of funny, since I definitely see the cinnamon stick pieces in my infuser. Anyway, glad this one got sent my way! It was quite yummy.

Another Bayswater sample from the lovely OMGSRSLY

I was looking forward to trying this based on the delicious name and the delicious smell. I made a cup last night when I got home late after a hair appointment.

I was so tired, I just wanted to relax, it seemed a good night for a caffeine free tea.

Unfortunatelyyyyyy I think I can officially add Honeybush to my list of herbal “teas” I loathe, along with Rooibos.

This wasn’t as haylike or woodsy as rooibos is to me, however all I was getting from this repeatedly with every sip was some weird hay note and pepper. PEPPER so much PEPPER. I almost dumped it, the only thing stopping me was that I didn’t feel like making another cup of tea and I really wanted something to drink with the rest of my cookie.

Thanks so much for sending this along, OMGSRSLY, it had so much promise but I’m sad to say it’s not for me!

I won’t rate it because that seems unfair, like rating an egg salad sandwich poorly because I hate eggs. (Not true, and I love egg salad sammiches, just using that as an example)

OMGsrsly

Yeah, some people get pepper from it! I’m sorry honeybush is not for you.

Plunkybug

Hmmm, sad. It does sound like it should be really delicious though. I do like honeybush, so maybe I’d like this.

OMGsrsly

It’s really good, Amariel, but I’m out and won’t make it to Bayswater before April.

Plunkybug

I think CrowKettle might be back in Van soon and maybe she can get some if it is not too inconvenient. But no worries. I’m happy if I can try it, but not the end of the world if I don’t. :) Is April still looking good?

Received a sample of this from OMGSRSLY, was super pumped because it’s been on my wishlist for awhile!

Made some just now, packaging some tea up while the baby naps.

It’s really as good as all the reviews state! Dessert in a cup but doesn’t have any weird fake flavour notes that I notice. I would definitely buy some sometime if the opportunity ever came up.

Thanks for sharing, OMGSRSLY!!

Cavocorax

Oh man, I wish we could (easily) order from these guys bc I would be DOWN.

Sil

I’ll be there in April i think again…

Fjellrev

I just emailed her last week asking about shipping to AB and she said that 750g or so costs like $11, so maybe to Ontario it would be more like $16? Still seems like it’ll be such a huge hassle to order.

whatshesaid

And to NB – $20? Boooooo

Fjellrev

Yeah, if it’s already that much to AB, I feel really sorry for the East Coasters. She doesn’t do shipping deals either. :(

OMGsrsly

LOL. Just get me to buy it and walk it over to the post office. Sil just sent me a massive box for $15, and I swear it was 2kg or so.

Sil

LOL it wasn’t 2k…was it!?

OMGsrsly

That was HEAVY! My scale won’t weigh that much. :P

Sil

it wasn’t as heavy as one of the boxes…

Thanks to OMGsrsly for the sample! Mmmm, this is delicious. I started drinking it without reading the description and I was thinking that it tasted like some sort of caramel dessert. Now that I’ve seen nougat in the description, I’m going back to it and realising that really is what it tastes like. I added milk and sugar to the 2nd half of my cup, which really brings out the desserty-ness of this tea, but it was pretty delicious plain as well.

My sister picked up a buttload of Grapefruit EG, Grapefruit Rooibos, and a wee bit (50g) of this one for me before she came home at Christmas.

Oh my goodness, I can see why the Tea Frens like this!

I wish the base was a wee bit stronger. It’s smooth, but a bit weak. I think a nice rich Assam would be perfect with the sweet nutty nougat.

I think I’m going to make a latte out of it now that this plain cup is done.

Definite restock next time she is planning to come home/I eventually make it across the pond.

Flavors: Marshmallow, Nutty, Sweet

OMGsrsly

That’s one reason I like mixing it with Creme Brulee. You get that almost burnt sugar bite that really counterbalances the sweet nougat. :)

Bear With Me

I haven’t tried creme brulee yet, but think I might pick some up next time.

this was another from omgsrsly and for some reason, one that i was reluctant to try…for no reason at all beyond the fact that every time i went to have it, i was like….mmmmm maybe later lol. This is actually quite a tasty tea. even cooled it’s got a great flavour to it and it really enjoyable. with a little sweetner this would be perfect! thanks for the share omgsrsly!

haha i love that omgsrsly found this one weird..and odd. For me, it’s actually pretty tasty, even if it is an oolong but the mango reminds me more of peach….but then maybe that’s the result of the passion fruit flavour being added to it. Still though, quite a ncie tea, and i’d be interested in trying it hot brewed, iced. with just a dash of sweetner to really bring out the flavours… thanks lady!

OMGsrsly

It’s just a little toasty. I do like the flavour of this one!

The minute the hot water hit the leaf, the hibby purple began to spread. Consequently, I didn’t let this steep as long as I would another herbal and that might have been a mistake because this is tasteless. Perhaps the cold brew will be better. Nonetheless, thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try something new.

Sipdown (104)!

So, I have like six hours of paid online training to do for Sobeys but it took a week for them to process my employee hire info (even though I started working) during that week and get me an employee number and add it to their system. I get it, ‘cause Dollarama had to do that too for new employees; but it took two weeks to clear. I finally got my employee number on grand opening though, but I still can’t log online to do the online training portal. My account just gets rejected. It’s very frustrating because if I don’t get that done I’ll get in shit, but also because, I’ll repeat again, it’s paid.

But anyway, thank you again Sil for sending this. I cold brewed the last of it because sweeter dessert teas usually work surprisingly well when prepared that way and this is definitely a sweeter dessert type tea. Sadly, I didn’t like it very much as a cold brew. Here’s basically what I jotted down in my online notes:

- Coffee/Burnt Caramel notes
- Sweet but in a very artificial way
- Kept getting strange bitter coffee notes too
- Not actually a huge fan; took me all day to finish it off…
