Sipdown on this one. I sent this to the ladies in the BBB Box mostly for a play on the names of the teas. They received a breakfast blend and then an afternoon blend. :) Next trip is going to be Fancy teas!
This helped solidify in my mind that Murchie’s teas are only for me if i want a a nice delicious tea with milk and sugar. It helped as well that i finally figured out i need to steep this at a bit cooler temperature since there’s some sneaky darjleeing in there.
Overall, not a fantastic tea but it’s well enough for the small quantity that let me play with it and share it. I don’t think it’ll be a super huge win with the ladies, but that’s part of the fun! we get to share experiences and some are wins and some are less wins hahaha
Uhh, JustJames, I think I have a problem.
Thanks for that. It required some negotiating to find this tea in the cupboard.
I actually really like this smokey tea. I didn’t think I would, until Sil suggested maple syrup, and then I ended up with Too Much whipping cream. Maple whipping cream + Russian Caravan tea = match made in heaven.
This tea probably isn’t the best quality out there, but I’m enjoying it and that’s what counts. Right? It will definitely be a void in my cupboard when it’s done, but what to fill it with…
Sipdown from, uhh, a couple days ago.
Guys, no internet for 2 weeks was HARD. I tried to keep up at work and on my phone, but I’ve used up most of my phone data for the month. :/
Anyways. I liked it, it was refreshing, I won’t buy more. Iced or cold brewed is best. (This time it was cold brewed.)
This is SO GOOD with maple whipped cream. So good.
Just don’t over-whip your cream. You might end up with a couple chunks of soft butter in your tea.
It was still good.
Lil early? Nah. I was Xmas shopping online this morning – well, browsing and adding to my shopping cart, anyway. ;)
This is ok. It’s not great. I drank it, but I don’t want any more.
Sadly I’m all out of this – a sample box I got at Murchie’s in Victoria over the summer. Tea was one of the highlights of my trip! I doubt I will order more since shipping is $10 to the States. Nice with a touch of soymilk but doesn’t need sugar, IMO. Highly enjoyable morning tea.
sipdown! (179 after adding in my samples from angel/teavivre). I had this as a latte with dinner and walking dead tonight. It was as it usualy is. I’m glad to be done with it and likely won’ re-rder since there are other vanilla blacks out there that also taste delicious as a tea and not a latte!
Tried this as a normal tea. Tonight. Um no thanks. I stand firm in my belief that murchies sells teas best served with milk and possibly sugar. I’ve got two more bags to use up tomorrow in my latte and then it’ll be a sipdown woohohoo!
Afternoon tea latte after a crazy long day or trying to take mom shopping atthe outlets. Found a crazy good deal on a suit for her, which she needs and isn’t a fussy duddy suit. Exhausting, but a good day to do it as it was a bit cloudy. Overall just having a great time out here. This morning we got to watch the pelicans pass over the water as well as the herons. So good.
Had this earlier in the afternoon. This is a decent enough blend,though I prefer it with the addition of caramel or vanilla.
Latte style vanilla tea! Mmmmmperfect second tea of heathy day before getting up and getting going"
This is so perfect today with a dash if milk and sugar. So warm and comforting! I thought I had a lifetime supply of this, but it might not last the winter.
I’m having such an awesome weekend too. Today we are relaxing by reading and computer games. We’re totally dystopian with Prison Architect and Papers Please on the computer, while I read some angsty fic.
Tea of the morning here, I had a fabulous weekend with my Sweetie but now it’s back to real life…
This is a really great blend of black teas esp. for a teabag! I accidentally oversteeped it but it still seems good to me. It reminds me of my lovely vacation in Victoria B.C. Hopefully I will go back there someday. See previous notes for more details.
This shines with the promise of strawberries and lemon, but once steeped it kind of loses its appeal.
I definitely prefer it cold steeped or flash chilled over hot, but it’s a little chilly right now and I don’t want cold. I want hot lemon strawberry goodness.
Still, it’s decent. I think as a hot “iced tea” herbal I prefer Baywater’s Cranberry Orange Chili Pepper. It’s more versatile. And so good with cranberry honey.
I have SO MUCH of this tea. Maybe 6 oz? But now it’s starting to get cooler out I’ll start drinking this up a lot more. It’s pretty awesome with just a dash of sugar/cream.
Treat this one as a green. It’s the only way!
If you don’t it will end up really overdone and bitter.
Treated as a green, it’s pretty good. Not my favourite, but drinkable.
Sipdown – I fiddled a bit with the leaf amount and steaping time but I was never able to get more flavour out of this tea. Even with milk, it never improved beyond basic-black-tea-with-a-hint-of-cinnamon.
Cool, here is another sip down. I went through this faster than expected, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I think I was just subconsciously trying to get it out of the way.
The last cup accidentally got soy milk. I meant to use half-and-half, but grabbed the soy without thinking since I just used it for a peanut butter banana porridge recipe I tried out (it was so delicious) and it was already on the counter.
Eh, not great with the soy but yay for one more down.
Yeah, I’m done with this one. The idea is great, but I’m sipping the tea and meh. I had no choice but to add cream and sugar, to try and smooth out the flavours. This way it’s drinkable, but still not that great. And it’s becoming more bitter and cloying as it cools.
I don’t need “meh” teas in my cupboard in large quantities, especially when they’re using up a precious tin. So, goodbye tea. Hope you enjoy your new life in the compost bin.
Made myself a latte with this one as a break from the straight tea i’ve been drinking today. This is a fairly average vanilla tea – not too strong and not too bad. I think? i bought it to try something after visiting the store but now i can’t recall lol oh well! it’ll do in a pinch when i want to use tea bags for things.
