I just tossed a few of these pearls in with a re-steeping of English Tea Store’s Angels’ Dream tea. I was hoping that the floral, green tea flavour will meld wonderfully with the blackberry and maple flavours.
Perhaps it was not a wonderful melding, but it certainly is different and tasty.
This is a tea I save for the special occasions. If you are a fan of the lychee fruit, this is one to keep in the cupboard.
The aroma is very pleasant, with strong fruity notes and hints of floral. Lychee is the clear star of the show. You can taste it prominently with each sip, and a lingering sweet and creamy aftertaste will always be left in your mouth.
I made this according to the suggestions of all who liked it. Boiling water and steeped for 3-4 minutes, but mine came out SO bitter! I finished the cup, but I had to force myself to do it because I don’t like tossing out tea if I can help it. I have another cups worth of a sample to try again. Maybe I should let it steep more/less thoughts?
Thankfully this was just a sample size!
Doing a bit of mixing…this plus an earl grey black tea.
Sadly the last of this sample, you will be missed.
This is an awesome Raspberry Champagne tea… I think it’s my favorite one that I’ve tried thus far. It is light, crisp and sweet. If I hadn’t read the ingredients and saw that it had hibiscus and stevia in it, I wouldn’t have guessed it. I can’t taste the tartness of the hibiscus, it only adds a light color to the cup. I can’t taste that funky aftertaste from the stevia. I taste raspberry and the light, crisp taste of champagne, as well as the jasmine and osmanthus. The honey tones are delightful.
Definitely the best Raspberry Champagne I’ve yet to encounter. I love it.
This is a tea I got awhile back from TeaEqualsBliss thank you very much. Smells like a white tea with a touch of black teaness. Look wise is a white tea but dark leaves in to. This tastes refreshing and light and a medium tasting white tea with abit of floralness to it. And also a little black tea taste like to. I think this tea is really good tasting and I am happy that TeaEqualsBliss was kind enough to send me abit of it.
This is growing on me. It does have a nice mouthfeel especially if I go heavy on the leaf.
Getting a lot of creamy mouthfeel from this today, and a lot of bright flavors.
Love this tea. having a MEH kind of day, so I wanted to cheer myself up. This is helping.
Try as I may, I never seem to be able to taste that citrus-y flavor I was promised. Also, to me at least, the bergamot makes this tea smell like soap or cleaning product. That being said, the tea itself tastes okay and it doesn’t smell as soapy as it cools. I probably won’t buy this again, though. No offense to people who like Earl Grey.
Backlogging I got this tea sample from TeaEqualsBliss thank you so much! This mainly smells like peach. The taste is a good medium strength sort of juicy natural tasting peach with abit of ginger thats not over the top and a light plesant white tea. I think this is a great peach white tea the perfect amount of peach taste for me. Thank you so much for letting me try this I am very thankful.
Backlogging. I got this in a swap from TeaEqualsBliss with a nice assortment of tea. Thank you very much. This tastes like passionfruit with abit of tartness and a little bit of mango and peach with the honeybush/roobios mix. This is pretty good even though I am not sure about red roobios its tolerable in here with the fruit being stronger. I drunk this lukewarm but I think this would be great cold.
After drinking my cup of Raspberry Lychee tea at Pickwick, I chose a pot of this Grand Earl Grey to have with our meal. They had a delicious array of sandwiches, and the girls and I decided to split three sandwiches three ways. My favorite was a Turkey and Provolone on Marbled Rye with Raspberry Honey Mustard. Wow was it a great sandwich.
The grand earl grey was a nice pot to sip on while enjoying our meal. It had quite a smoky aftertaste, which was not something I expected. I haven’t had a smoky earl before.
We ordered chocolate cherry scones for dessert, served with raspberry jam and clotted cream. OMG….this was the perfect tea with such a sweet dessert. I love how Earl seems to go with just about everything. I may have to pick up some of this, it is so different from other teas I have in my cupboard!
Two co workers and I decided to go out for afternoon tea today at the Pickwick Society tearoom after work today. We started by each choosing a dainty cup (china tea cup) of tea we wanted to enjoy. They the full line of Octavia teas. After smelling several samples, I decided on this tea. I love the ripe, tart berry and sweet lychee fruit aroma and I needed the black tea base to pick me up. Once they brought the tea out to me in a pretty white with pink roses tea cup and saucer, I let it steep for four minutes. The brewed tea had a highly floral scent. Maybe a hint of jasmine? I loved how the sweet lychee hit my tongue first and the berry in the end of the sip. This was devine. I bet it would be great iced as well!
VERY Strong today…Great!
Had two cups of this so far today! Lovely Black tea and floral, vanilla, caramel combo! Ahhhh!
Another SIPDOWN for today! BUT…I will miss this one!!! Sigh…
Upping the rating! This has a lot to it but it all works and I can pick out each ingredient but they all work really well together. Nothing is over powering the others. This time around I can identify the apple which I couldn’t do during my first cuppa. The chocolate is very nice and I swear I can taste orange in there…maybe it’s just ‘leftover’ from my holiday Orange Chocolate phase…LOVE Orange Chocolate! YUM! Anyhow…the Vanilla is really smooth and yummy in this and the rooibos is a little lighter than most but still stands its ground. The mint is wonderful! Gentle but terrific! LOVE THIS!
