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
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.

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.
Flavors: Apple, Cranberry, Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Orange, Rosehips, Spicy
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…
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!
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 :)
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]
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. :)
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
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 :)
