Resteeped what I had yesterday. Still delicious.
So I used a shorter steeping time and 1.5 tsps for a full Ingenuitea (~12 oz.). Couldn’t help adding the hazelnut creamer. And nice large cup of liquid deliciousness. I think I’ll be kind of glad when I use up the hazelnut creamer that got left here. It is far too good to be good for you.
A generous sample from QuiltGuppy of one of her own custom blends. This one is pretty good. I like that it is lower caffeine, which makes it great for a late afternoon/evening tea. I definitely get all three flavors…the vanilla, coconut, and hazelnut- all flavors that I like . The tea base works with the flavors, too. 24 oz. pot, 3 perfect teaspoons, freshly boiled water for 4 mintes. Lightly sweetened.
Two tsps might be too much for even a full ingentuitea. Still, very tasty with the hazelnut creamer. I think this might be my fave until I can get some more of the Caravan Earl Grey from David’s Tea.
Mmmm….so, so delicious and perfect for a movie night with my husband. I’m almost out of my bag and my husband loves this tea so much that HE came up with the idea to order more soon.
With hazelnut creamer, this is almost like drinking really expensive, nice, valentines day candy. Yum.
My jug of cold tea for the next few days. Out of a fear that the black wouldn’t resteep well (to make iced tea, I make one pot of tea, pour it into my jug, and then resteep the leaves to get my full two liters), I probably used way too much and it is super strong. I used about twice the amount of leaf I usually use for 2 L of tea, and I brewed it in a smaller teapot (to avoid having an extra liter leftover…and the other one was dirty). So it is super strong, but very, very tasty. I’m enjoying this iced a lot, though I need to be careful about drinking it after five. I like sleeping. Maybe I need to keep one jug of caf tea and one jug of decaf in the fridge.
This tea really is a delight iced, and it’s creamy without any milk added. A bit bitter, but that’s my fault. It’s creamy and sweet and everything I want in a black tea.
Maybe when I go home to Tennessee in August, I should steal a milk jug or two from mom so I’m not lying when I call my pitchers of iced tea “jugs”.
This makes a seriously awesome iced tea latte.
“I liked the idea of a lapsang souchong blend because plain lapsang can be too strong for me. Mixing with the vanilla oolong and the black cream is such a good idea. The tea really does smell like a campfire but I was hoping for a stronger marshmallow element. I ended up adding some soymilk and a bit of vanilla extract which definitely helped bump up the flavor a bit
I used my ingenuitea to brew up five tsps in just over a cup of water, then I drained it into my tea pot and added enough water for five cups of tea, put it in the frig, and now have some bodacious cold tea. This stuff if fabulous.
I brewed the last that I had of this yesterday to make a pitcher of iced tea. As good as this one is hot, it is brilliant iced. Really liking this.
I got some of this from JoeCool (Nichole) a while back, but, I never got around to trying it. This is delightful! Sweet and fruity and minty. The mint doesn’t overpower. It is a very refreshing cup. Nice! Thanks Nichole!
that’s what the name reminds me of, every time I see it in the bin. I love teas with a fun name :)
and the taste… well, this is actually the second time I’m drinking it, but the first time I made it too weak, and added some sugar, which it didn’t need… so I waited to give it a fair review.
This time, there’s plenty o’leaves, no sugar, and a generous splash of milk. Yum!!
It’s malty, vanilla, coconut… all at once. A wonderful dessert tea, courtesy of the lovely QuiltGuppy who’s provided me with so much tea joy. Thanks for sharing this one, I am truly impressed :)
The incredibly generous QuiltGuppy sent me some from her custom blend…and I just added it to my always ongoing shopping cart at Adagio! This blend is bold and strong, and utterly delicious. Now I should say that vanilla and coconut are two of my favorite flavors, and hazelnut is another I love, so of course I would love this blend! :) In each sip I taste a perfect medley of all three flavors. It brews up sweet as well – no sweetener added (not even I did, and I’m the Queen of Sweet). I think folks making the (right!) choice to switch from coffee to tea would like this as it is hearty and bold with a coffee flavor. But anyone who enjoys black tea would love this AM wakeup cuppa. Thanks QG! I am officially hooked!
Quickie post, because I’m supposed to be busy packing boxes. Chocolate, raspberry and cream, apparently.
I can definitely spot the chocolate both in flavour and aroma, but mostly the flavour. The other two, not so much. The cream shows up later as the cup cools and develops a bit, but primarily in the aftertaste and as a sensation of cream covering the tongue. Not sure I’m really a fan of that. It’s rather too fat for my liking here. If I concentrate then I think I can spot the raspberries, but they are somewhat distorted by the other flavours and not immediately recognisable as raspberries. At this point though, the chocolate notes seem to have completely faded into the background, and that one may very well have overpowered the other two from the beginning.
I don’t know, it’s nice enough, but it’s not something I would really go after if choosing something for myself. I’m finding it rather heavy.
Mmm thankfully I had the thought to bring this sample from KeenTeaTime (KiTT) with me this morning. (Almost had an allergy mishap and drank some tea with “strong hints of coconut” in it! This tea is so yummy I wish we’d had some ice in the office fridge but this is really awesome hot too.

YUMS. Although I am totally biased. :) (Please see other notes.)
