Thanks Sil! I finally finished this sample! (156)
I’ve never heard of this company before but the blueberry in this is good. It’s very strong but doesn’t taste really artificial or anything. I guess it had actually blueberries in it too? Great.

Thanks again!

Oh, and now that I’m NOT getting my Teavana order in, I’ll only be at 180 once all my orders/swaps etc arrive! So I’ve got room for more? Ha. NO. No nO NO.

I received a wonderful holiday surprise from Sil. She sent me a tea sample in a card. So awesome!

Inside the card it reads “I know you’re ok with not loving puerh, but since you’re not buying it – I thought you might like to try another flavoured one”. Ha ha. Bring it on!

This dry tea smells like an orange creamsicle. Quite delicious.

The tea package recommended a 10 minute steep – eek! I stuck with 2 minutes, ha ha. It was quite a thick liquor, dark after steeping.

The tea tastes more like an orange rind black tea. Does not taste so much like puerh to me – and I am more than ok with that. The creamy orange creamsicle taste returns in the aftertaste. This one is definitely better as it cools. Not so much blood orange to me, but more just orange, which is also ok. I think if I would have steeped longer, that might have brought out more of a tart blood orange flavour.

I received this from the company in the mail today and rather than have it eat up room in my cupboard, i opted to make a cup and toss the other cup’s worth in the box for Cavocorax so HA!

If you sign up for their newsletter they send you a sample every couple of months with their newletter which came with a coupon for free shipping (and their shipping is pretty expensive so not a bad deal) it’s enough to make me want to pick up a few more samples of a couple of their teas.

This tea isn’t bad – there are actual blueberries in this. However, this particular brand of rooibos is that kind that always seems to be present no matter what it’s blended with. so it’s not my favourite. But it’s not bad. this does taste more closely to wild blueberries as well than just normal old blueberries and that makes me happy. over all, not bad but not OMG AMAZING! :)

I also had my cold brew of this from the other day. Since i essentially put my left over leaves in to see how they would turn out, this isn’t really a sipdown. What i can say though, is that as a cold brew this is pretty delicious! The puerh adds a strength to the brew so it’s not quite like drinking juice but the flavours still shine through and make this delicious! Added a tiny bit of sweetner to this and it was even more tasty! I do like this one a lot. Just wish they hadn’t been picked over when we went back to the craft show :(

I picked this up at the christmas craft show – i wish more vendors there would consider smaller sizes. There were a few others that peaked my interest but i have zero desire to add a 100g to my cupboard of new teas that i’ve never tried. This was the only tea that offered a sample pack of the ones i wanted. (i’m hoping if go back they’ll have Callebaut Black Raspberry in particular ’cause man that smelled divine!).

i’ve never heard of this company before, but they are canadian and from out west, so i figured what the heck. This smells AMAZING! i figured if it tasted half as good, i’d be set. Steeping time on this one called for 10 mins, which sounded crazy to me so i stuck with 5 mins. I probably could have gone longer but the brew was pleasantly tasty. I could taste the puerh as a base but then the blood orange came through. Also to note, it was blood orange and not orange…the two being different beasts all together!

On the whole, this was quite nice, and if the company didn’t have silly shipping prices, i’d be more inclined to try a bunch more. As it is, i’ll try and catch them at craft shows and try a few more that way first.

Too bad about the lack of sample sizes. I really wonder what the mint would be like with the raspberry though!

Sil

Oversteeped.. oops! Still ok though, with that Green Tea kind of astringency (or whatever you call it) and strong cherry/subtle rose notes.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 8 min or more
