I really enjoy the creamy finish to this lovely full bodied black tea.

Truth be told, the only reason this doesn’t have a review from me yet is because I’ve been trying to figure out whether I can find anything bad to say about it. I don’t think I can. It’s sweet, fragrant, and delicious— currant and caramel go so well together, and the hint of bergamot adds a delicate, flowery note. (Delicate is key— the black tea base is a background sort of flavour, which brings out the sweetness and nuance of the other flavours. I find myself not wanting to waste it on mornings where I can’t really sit down to enjoy it.) All in all, it really does feel like a Paris kind of tea. One of my favourites for sure! <3
mm aromatic and creamy rooibos thats sweet from the chocolate and strawberry notes with a hint of that amazing rhubarb tartness.
As a child, some European neighbors would give me bars of marzipan dipped in chocolate, which I loved. As an adult I became a tea lover. This tea combines both in delicious almond goodness. Mmm
This was always one of my favourite teas while living in Japan. This particular blend has a fairly strong green tea blend, that I feel overwhelms the flavour of the rice. While still enjoyable, I prefer a genmaicha where the flavours are more balanced.
This is a fabulous Earl Grey, tempered by the roundness of the creamy flavours. It is almost like a wave – first you’re hit by the irish cream scent, then the taste of the earl grey tea itself, and a creamy light finish. My only issue is that on a lot of brews, the Earl Grey is almost a little too bitter. This tea is almost always better on second brewing.
This is a delicious rooibos with just a subtle hint of vanilla flavor, but an excellent scent. Great tea to have curled up in a blanket on the couch on a cold evening.
Very mild orange notes, with hints of Christmas spices. This is one of Nikaido’s teas where they chose to include almonds in the mix. It works in some, but the oily flavours it adds are a bit of a distraction in this case, especially with the rest of the flavours being so mild. I think it depends a lot on whether you get more orange rind in your brew.

This is a delightful rooibos tea, with strong citrus flavours, and just enough sweetness. I especially enjoy this at work in the afternoons – the citrus is a light pick-me-up without any caffeine hit.

Chai and rooibos make a great match. Sweet and tasty.
This tea is, as far as I know, only available from the Nikaido gift shop, which is in the Steveston area of Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is fantastic, and one of my farourites.
