Recent Tasting Notes
I didn’t find out about LiberTEAS’s company until after it had closed…yes, once I read about her blends, I had an incredible sad. LiberTEAS, bless her, kindly sent me some of her teas in a swap, and I’ve been fortunate enough to get a very small supply of her Breakfast Blend on hand (it’s the best ever, and yes, I’m hoarding the stuff).
In my awesome swap box from Meghann, she had nearly a full tin of this tucked into it, as well as my beloved Breakfast Blend!! Yes, I squealed like a little girl. Actually, probably more like a tweenage girl watching Twilight, squealing when Edward appears on the screen. You would have laughed.
I’m slightly worried about this, not going to lie. I’ve not been having the best of luck with caramel teas here lately, but I know if anyone can do a tea right, it’s LiberTEAS. After all, her Masterpiece Chai is, well, a masterpiece.
She’s not let me down. It’s bold, in your face, and awesome. Creamy and caramel, but without that “burnt” taste that I’ve been finding in other caramel blends. I’m seriously considering making a T-sac full of this, taking it to Cuppa, and begging Lisa to make me a latte out of it with caramel syrup (I’m crap at making lattes at home). This is delicious. Debating adding a smidge of sugar to this, but I honestly don’t think it needs it. Nom, nom, nom!!
I broke out my coveted purple tin of this and made a super strong cup this morning after dropping my boyfriend off at work. I added the vanilla cream I’ve been using a lot, and sugar. It was perfect… something steamy and sweet before going out into the cold to my car. There’s just something about cinnamon and autumn…
Finished my sample of this the other night with a friend and my brother. It was soothing and wonderful as always… which prompted us to buy two of the last remaining tins from LiberTEAS ‘s Artfire shop. Now I’ll be able to drink as much as I want for a while! So pumped!
Had to have another tall mug of this tonight. I have been craving it since yesterday. Not much of this left, unfortunately. :/ Will definitely miss it when it’s gone, especially since I’ve searched online for a similar combination and was unsuccessful. This was a truly unique blend.
My first tea by the legendary LiberTEAS!
This is absolutely wonderful. I would never have thought to combine rose and cinnamon, but I love it. There is just enough rose in it, as I’ve had rose teas before that were almost peppery, but this is much better balanced. The cinnamon softens the rose and creates a really warm, delicious taste. The vanilla adds another dimension, especially in the aftertaste, and it’s just icing on the cake at this point. And the vanilla compliments the black tea’s natural taste, which just makes it even better. I’m definitely making a strong cup of this tomorrow morning before I work a double.
I’m actually really sad now that LiberTEAS isn’t in business anymore. Because yum.
mmm…I wouldn’t mind waking up to this! The aroma of cinnamon is wafting up to my nose, tempting me to try it even though I know it is still too hot to drink. The taste: Lightly sweet cinnamon black tea. At the swallow I can detect the rose; as it cools, it is even more prevalent. Quite lovely! Sweet Cinnamon Rose…delicious indeed!
Thank you Liberteas!
I have chai-anxiety. I really do. And I shouldn’t, since so many of the chais I’ve tried lately have been good. So I’ve brewed up a mug of *LiberTEAS*’s chai that she sent me a sample of in a fantastic swap box…and I’m sitting here sniffing it, gathering the courage to sip. The scent is very good, definitely spicy.
sigh Taste is not as spicy as I feared from the scent. It’s smooth and calming. The flavors aren’t just blended together, it’s like they’re melded into one solid taste. Nothing is standing out and screaming “I’m here, taste me, taste me!!”, and nothing is really in the background whispering “I’m here, too, but I don’t want to play right now”.
LiberTEAS, you named this one right. I think I’m more in love with the Alberta Street Chai (it’s the Lapsang Souchong, I can’t help it), but I can see myself having an on-going fling with this chai. Yet another reason I’m sad that you’ve closed up shop.
This getting dark earlier really messes with my internal clock. For about the next two weeks, I’ll be completely sloth-like and will only want to curl up and hibernate at the first hint of darkness in the evenings. Then I’ll get over it, and will resume a regular sleep schedule (hopefully with no insomnia spells). So I’m going to have a big pot of this to soothe me to sleep tonight…it’s definitely perfect for that.
LiberTEAS sent this as part of a swap…needless to say, I’m excited to try it.
This definitely wins the “flowery chamomile” category in my search for the perfect chamomile. The lavender and honeybush really make this a fantastic blend. It’s not overpoweringly flower; it’s gentle and soothing. It’s something your mom or grandma would pull out and make for you after you’ve had a really long day and need a hug.
Halfway through the pot, I can already tell that this is going to help me sleep good tonight!! Thanks, LiberTEAS, for sending some my way!!
Mmmm this is wonderful, really hits the spot. I was craving a sweet dessert tea this afternoon and this was waiting for me in my mailbox. Thanks to the SororiTea Sisteres blog contest I get to enjoy this richly caramel tea along with a tin of Liberteas British Breakfast tea. Much thanks for the tea!
Happy New Year! Here’s to good things happening in 2011.
I’m starting off 2011 with my favorite breakfast blend. I’ve managed to get a fair amount of this in my stash (thanks to LiberTEAS and Meghann!), but I know that all too soon it will be gone. It’s easily a tea I could drink every day and never get tired of. Smooth, gentle, slightly astringent and just the right amount of vanilla. Perfect for gently waking me up and welcoming in the new year.
