Ummm, maybe not the best tea to have at 9pm, but when I purchased it today, I could not wait to get it home, and there was no paitence to wait for Sunday breakfast… Nope, not at all!
When I first smelled the leaves I was struck at how much this smelled like that horrid “Raspberry Mocha” from Starbucks. This left me a little leary to try it, but I figured there really was nothing to loose since there is only one tea from DAVIDs that I truly did not like (Dolce & Banana) This tea is fun to watch as it steeps and I am a little sad that I left my glass bodum at work, since the raspberries plump right up!
I could only smell the raspberries and chocolate, but taste the mild chicory and almond taste… we’ll see what tomorrow brings.
This was my “tea to go” today, myself and two other co-workers piled into my car for a trip to DAVIDs for a between shift purusal… uh-oh, 3 women in a tea shop is like a bunch of kids in a candy store screaming for the attentions of the one person behind the counter. But I must say she was calm cool and collected!
When I first sniffed these maple infused leaves I was hit in the face with so much syrup I worried that it would come off tasting like a D grade maple syrup, but I decided to take the plunge and who knew this would be so delightful?! Drinking it hot reminds me of winters huddled around troughs filled with snow eagerly holding that precious popcicle stick, breathing in the scent of fresh snow, fresh tapped trees adn boiling maple syrup and waiting, WAITING for that sticky boiled goodness to be poured over the snow so you can wrap your stick in it and stand cheeks rosey and toes frozen as you savour that maple goodness that makes Canada Great!
This is a great tea and my first Rooibos that will leave me looking for more on pancake and french toast Sundays!
I accidentally oversteeped this! Egad!!
Not a good thing to do with this tea, that really does ruin the flavour when it sits for too long.
I didn’t get as much “whisky” flavour this time around. It was good, but I’ve had better steeps of this one. My bad *sighs
Oh, but I did do a second steep, and when it was still hot… I had a few sips of overwhelming peach!!! I’ve never seen that particular aspect present itself so strongly in this tea before. Who knew??
By the time it had cooled, the peach was well and gone of course. I wonder if I do more steeps next time, will I get an entire cup of peach? Hmmm. Usually, I don’t make it past two, maybe three… Me thinks I need to push atleast four!
After my last tea-scapade I needed something surefire to pick me up. and no surprise, this did the job! Two steeps and I was in heaven. See my previous notes for the reason why!
Only now I’m a bit traumatized… it’s been so long since I had a new yummy black tea, I’m feeling the burn man! (yes, I am an addict, and I don’t need help!)
I’m considering drastic measures here— Renting a Telus bike on my lunch hour tomorrow just to score some goods. ha! I’ll find that evasive wonder tea somewhere even if I get jitters trying!
now here we have a novelty tea! but I love it.
The first infusion was heavy on the whisky, not letting much else come through. It was strong, and generally what I had hoped for, except that the peach was far too mild. The second infusion was even better! I could really taste the peach here and it became super smooth, almost creamy. The third infusion was more or less the same but weaker… enough so that I doubt it could have done a fourth.
Next time, I’ll try shorter infusions and see if I can get more out of it.
Either way, this one is naturally sweet, complex, drastically different between infusions, and overwhelmingly tasty!! nothing but good things to say about this one.
Oh ya, and eating the nuts/fruit afterwards is fun to! :P
As we know by now, I am from The South. Not the south as in any state in the lower half of the US, but The South. Grew up in Tennessee and went to college in Kentucky. My area’s known for not letting the civil war die (I’ve done many reenactments in my time), good manners, chivalry, and, of course, whisky. So when I heard about this tea I had to try it. I love my whisky. I have three kinds in the house now, all made in Tennessee or Kentucky. (Can you guess which three?)
I made a jug of this for the fridge as soon as my wife got home with it. I adore this tea. Like she said, it tastes like whisky without the burn. I brewed it a little weak, but have no fear! This tea and I are in for a long, happy future. It is delicious and as tempting as with was to drop a little Jack or Jim in when I first tried it this morning, I resisted. However, it is well after five now…hmmm. Nah, I don’t want to mess up the smoothness with the burn of alcohol…tonight, anyway.
Also, I drank two cups of tea last night so this could be my 400th tasting note. Holy cow!
I don’t care for this tea, to be honest. I didn’t expect to, but I wanted to give it a go, since I didn’t expect to enjoy Read My Lips either. I’m just not a big fan of chocolate in teas.
Also, something in this tea gives me an intense headache…I think. I’ve had it twice now and twice I haven’t finished it due to headache, but I’m going to give it one more try before I say for certain.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea – it’s really good. I can see why it’s been such a hit with the Steepsterites. It has such a rich, delicious flavor.
I love the way the buttery note builds. By the time I’ve finished the cup (which I just did), the flavor is so very buttery and rich and creamy. YUM! Very decadent.
This tea has a very light citrus flavour and the bergamot creates a very smooth taste that makes it easy to drink.
That said, I think this tea is a bit too mild for me. If one doesn’t really like grassy flavour typical of some green teas, I can see the appeal of this particular blend, but I would personally like something with a bolder taste.
