I’m not that impressed with this tea. :( First, it doesn’t taste at all like buttered anything, let alone rum. The black tea doesn’t even taste all that great. Second, it doesn’t smell like anything! Butterscotch is normally a stronger scent – think Butterscotch Lifesavers – but this is Weak. I’m finishing the cup, but I’m glad I opted for a sample size over a larger version. The other teas I’ve had from Culinary Teas are delish, but this misses the mark.
Tried this iced today…even better! I upped the rating since it’s multi-purpose! I will be getting a larger bag; if anyone wants to try some from my sample lemme know. Or perhaps we can split an order? I’m no tea pusher (like QG! :) ) but if you’re looking for a perfect summertime strawberry tea, this is it. :) Simply yummiful! (It’s so good, I invent words for it.)
This is one of the best strawberry teas I’ve had in a while, and definitely the best strawberry GREEN tea! The flavor tastes natural and pure, no artificial Starburst-y flavors. It smells as yummy as it tastes, even as it cools. This reminds me of summer – delightful and fun. A new cupboard essential!
Thank you LiberTEAS for sharing a sample of this with me. It certainly smells malty as I let it steep. The taste is surprisingly not bitter like I have come to expect with most breakfast teas. It tastes a bit malty and rich is the word I would use. But in such a good way. I might at a little sweetener, but I don’t think I’ll need it, have to see as the cup goes. Perfect tea to kick start this perfectly rainy day in NY.
Finishing off what I have on hand of this tea … it’s been a “sipdown” kind of day for me.
A lovely Earl Grey cream. It almost makes me miss the days when I was blending tea, as I had a pretty awesome Earl Grey Creme myself. But, this is still pretty good. Sweet and creamy meets tangy bergamot and brisk black tea. A very lovely combination.
This is another treat from TeaEqualsBliss! Thanks!!!
I love me some Earl Grey, and this is a really lovely Cream Earl Grey. The aroma presents the vanilla in the forefront, as does the taste, but the bergamot weaves its way throughout the sip. The black tea brisk without being too aggressive. A very nice, soothing cuppa!
So after trying The Tea Table’s version of this tea, I had to try this version that we found in a little shop in Kensington Market to see if it was as good! It’s nearly there, though it doesn’t have quite the body as the other. Still, it’s a very close second, close enough that I won’t have to try and find a way to get the other tea shipped to me, I can just stock up on this one! Very yummy, I love the vanilla and the earthiness of the rooibos and mmmmmm.
This tea is interesting. At first I thought that it had that gross liquor smell that a lot of these rooibos blends have, but then I realized that it was almost a bit minty! This is a smooth cup with a very nice sweetness. I’m not very fond of mint which is what ruins it for me, but I think this would be a great cup for someone who likes chocolate/mint together. I’m not even sure if it contains mint, but that’s what my tongue is tasting in tonight’s steep. Many thanks to Brandy for a sample!
This tasted really artificial Like an air freshener! I am going to have to retry this iced or some other way. I added a bit of honey this first time, but it was bitter and strong. I didn’t taste anything resembling chocolate, as the strawberry flavoring was really overpowering. Maybe I brewed it too strong? (I may have oversteeped it) Maybe it needed milk too? Something went wrong obviously! I was really looking forward to this one and am a bit disappointed. Will try again.
From the journal:
With a name like Chocolate Caramel turtle, you would think this tea would be wonderful. Unfortunately, I think the flavors are trying too hard. The tea itself seems weaker than others. I can taste all of the flavors, but it is just too much going on. This one was sent to a better home.
