Made this in a timolino (a little overleafed to use it all up) and brought it to work! I drank it while on break, and it was really good and yummy! This one definitely travels really well.
I have to say, I’m not that sad that it’s gone though, even if it was consistently good and I got to experiment with it in a lot of ways. This’ll just open up my cupboard even more to be able to try out other pear teas, because gee whiz do I love pear tea! Besides, this is from my very first online order and one of my first teas so it definitely feels like I’ve accomplished something in finishing it off!
It is my 600th note, I think! Eeep! How time flys when you are drinking tea.
Well, its a sipdown of this soft vanilla cloud. I liked this a lot, even if it wasnt the truest of loves. But I enjoyed it all.
Maybe someday I’ll bring it back in, but for now, more experimentation and exploration are to be done in the world of vanilla teas.
Tea #6 from Considering a new TTB
I’m so excited to see this one in the box since I didn’t get a chance to order it this fall despite it being one of seasonal teas I really wanted to try. After all the green teas I’ve had this morning it was nice to have a little bit of a sugary kick to get me through the middle of the day. All the flavors I was hoping were there, the burned caramel, sugary marshmallow, and lots of spice. The black base was a little weak, but a longer steeping time would have helped, I had intended to steep this for 5 minutes like I do s’mores, but got impatient around the 3m mark. As much as I enjoyed this hot, I think I would enjoy it more as a tea latte, I think it really needs the creamy aspect the milk would add in order for it to be perfect.
Attempting to sip down a whole bunch of teas before packages come sooo yes VERY EXCITING.
Roommates are going to kill me when they see me come home with packages hahha but it’s all good!
This tea is nice. Very almond-y and coconutty, which is decent. Not a fan of coconut but I’m learning to love the flavour of it in teas :)
Oomph…this is a smooth, creamy oolong that slithers along the inside of your mouth and leaves a sweet sort of caramel lingering on the palate. The oolong has all of these roasty notes that sit right in the middle of this whole caramel oozy delightfulness.
I’m kinda in love with this cup, honestly, but I will admit that it gets a little too sweet as it cools. I’ll probably put less sugar in future cups so that I can enjoy the flavour without so much saccharine heaviness at the end.
Great tea, though, and one I’d gladly drink again.
Even dry this tea is a bit…stinky, for lack of a better word. I wasn’t all that excited to steep it, but figured I might as well get it out of the way so I could figure out if it was worth keeping.
Post-brew it was a bit interesting, still. The pepper still sits at the forefront of the taste and has a definite burn, both during and after each sip. You can faintly taste the fennel in behind the burn…and I can almost tell that there’s some apple/cinnamon/spice layered deep under the rest of it.
I’m tolerating the burn today – although not what I would consider pleasant – because it does such a nice job of clearing out my stuffy nose. It’s not one I’d be willing to drink in the future, though, so into the swap drawer it goes.
Cold Brew: Fourteen hours total.
This was kinda weird as a cold brew, which is weird for me to say because I’ve had it so many ways before, including iced and as tea soda. I’ve expermineted with this one so much. But yeah, it was like really floral pear candy.
Also, one/two more cups left! Yay for getting some older teas out of the way!
This one grew on me! So, I’m actually pretty sad to see it go. Thanks for the sample VariaTEA.
I had two cups over the last four days – both were really good, but also fairly different so if there’s one thing that’d keep me from stocking this it’d maybe be the consistency. That’s becoming a very important thing for me on my tea journey, and I’m noticing that some of my “must stocks” are only ‘80s’ taste wise as opposed to some the higher up teas I have, but I think I like them better overall because they produce a more reliable cup in a variety of steep methods.
The first of the two cups was very sweet and caramel with a kind of green candy apple flavour, and no noticeable spice. This was the better cup – because I think I like candy sweet much better, and I know I’m not the biggest spice person.
The second cup was also good, but it did have more spice to it – though it provided a warmth to the tea that did remind me of Autumn. The black base was also stronger, though I personally love the Della Terra black base. The caramel was also milder.
So yes – I would really consider getting this again. I was definitely sad when I’d finished it off.
I love the randomizer; this is the tea it spit out on the first try today, and I gladly went to search for it. Definitely chocolate truffle -like, however again, I’m missing anything spicy or chili with this brew. In fact, it tastes remarkably like DAVIDs Chocolate Chili Chai (which happens to be sitting on the other side of my workspace), however I get more cream than anything out of this one, with faint chocolate and vanilla notes.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream

Absent-mindedly brewed this one up after a long day at school…I’m actually rather impressed with this cup.
The white chocolate is there, but it’s not overwhelming – it adds a smooth, sweet-ish note over the white tea base (which is actually a tiny bit bitter, but not obnoxiously so) and contributes to the overall nutty mellowness of the cup. I’ll admit that I like the aroma a bit more than the taste, but I think that’s more due to the head cold I’m dealing with than any failing in the blend.
Overall it’s nice enough, but I don’t know if I’d buy it in the future.
Today I learned several things. First of all, I learned that I do not like spinach pizza. Second, I learned that I can become waaaay too invested in a show ( I’m looking at you, Weeds). Third, I learned that I can enjoy jasmine!
I don’t like floral teas as a rule. They just don’t taste good to me and the scent can trigger my migraines. But I already have a migraine and foolishly grabbed the first mint tea I could find. However, it mixes well with the jasmine and creates a lovely, soothing tea. My migraine is worse, but them’s the breaks. I don’t blame the tea, I blame the Indian food last night and the dang sun this morning.
I just realized I am nine blog posts away from my 200th post, awesome! I will have to do something fancy for my 200th post, maybe I will throw a tea party Other than being on the mend, having some snow flurries, and making stars, it has been a very basic uneventful day. Tomorrow or Friday, however, Ben has promised me a trip to the thrift store to get a new iron, hooray!
Today’s tea is A Rabbit’s Garden by Della Terra Tea, this unusual tea came to me by accident, I ordered the Try Me Sampler and one of the teas I selected were out of stock so they substituted this one. I was a bit miffed because I was really excited for the other tea, but hey, I like trying new things! This tea is a blend of Green Tea, Green Peas, Corn Kernels, Peach Pieces, Carrot Bits, and Lemongrass, this tea truly is a garden in a cup. The aroma is very peachy with corn sweetness, there is an underlying aroma of dried peas and slight vegetal green.The aroma is very sweet, it is like an orchard with peaches and fresh vegetation.
After giving the garden a good watering the aroma of the brewed leaves is still very sweet and fruity, best of all there is no aroma of lemongrass (I still don’t like lemongrass). There is more of a vegetal tone specifically peas and spinach. I have to admit the aroma is a little odd. The liquid is very mild, quite peachy but not as sweet, with a touch of corn as well. As a finishing note there is a bit of vegetal.
The taste is surprisingly good, like really surprising for a tea made out of peas and corn. Imagine drinking veggie broth (made from the instant dip or soup mix that comes in packets) and then immediately drinking peach juice. And having both tastes in your mouth. It is a strange blend of flavors but it not unpleasant. There are notes of peach, spinach, tart lemons, it is very vegetal and very fruity. Once the tea cools the corn adds a bit of a nutty taste, the aftertaste is lemony and sharp and leaves a dryness in the mouth.
Flavors: Peach, Peas
Interestingly, this is almost identical to my beloved Caramel Pu-erh from Tea Desire – although this is a black tea. How do I know they’re almost identical? Because I’ve been sipping them both all afternoon, and at times I have to question myself which is which. I like the pu-erh more (oversteeped it to get more depth out of it), however this Caramel Creme is quite yum as well. I might even buy more. Maybe.
Flavors: Caramel, Cream
This is actually a resteep of earlier’s cup but since there is so much time between the two I count it as a new time having this tea and thus it gets a tasting note. However, the flavor hasn’t really changed and I don’t have much more to say about the tea itself. Instead, I will use this note to talk about my excitement.
Tomorrow, I am going to the American offices for Nina’s Paris again. YAY!!! I had such an amazing time the last time I went that I look forward to seeing them all again. Also, I get to stock up on Japon which is always something to be happy about. Plus, I plan on trying some new flavors and buying some other teas since my cupboard is shrinking fast and needs to be replenished.
This tea is a touch weak but that is probably due to it being underleafed. Consequently, I am not getting as much blueberry as I usually do (though there is still a fair bit). Instead I am tasting mostly a buttery baked good quality that is still very nice. Now that this is gone, I doubt I will be restocking anytime soon but I certainly would not say no to another glass.
I received a sample of this in the box of teas I bought from BrewTEAllySweet. Thank you.
This is a decent cup. The vanilla is a tad on the light side. I have had a few flavored vanilla teas and this holds its own, but would probably not purchase again.
