missB sent this one my way. it’s an intersting tea…not really sure how i feel about it. I think i’m landing on the side of, thanks but no thanks… this has a quite distinctive taste…and i’d argue that once it cools a bit, it does start to taste more like a stronger alcohol…which, lets be honest, if i’m going for that, i might as well drink the alcohol! still, a unique tea to try. thanks missb!
last cup of this tonight because i need some calming teas AND because i promised myself i’d get to 150 before i was allowed to open my damn fine teas that arrived today…and i want to drink at least one tomorrow. soooo here i am lol rock ME like a hurricane!
yes..that’s right. i went there.
this was another one sent my way by missB Funnily enough the chocolate smell/taste in this one is intense. I have to agree with her, that when something has spicy in the name, you expect it to be spicy…not sweet. This is chocolate rooibos with a hint of something else going on there. it’s still tasty, but it doesn’t have the kick i was expecting it to have. I’ll have to play with the steeping a little to see if there’s anything i can do to make it a littler punchier.
in other news? salted caramel criollo is amaaaaaazing….
Final Count: 149 (19 + 4 to go)
I mistakenly grabbed this tonight thinking it was something else. Had it anyway, even though it’s really just an apple tea with a touch of cinnamon and herbals way in the background. Less palatable as it cools, although more… satisfying, knowing it’s an herbal, and potentially helping me feel better.
Still wondering what’s in here, so I just omitted the red chunks of whatever-it-is, and brewed it up. Hot, it really is lemon meringue pie – more thick creamy lemon than anything though. As it cools it got a bit metallic, although I’m still finding it delicious.
A sad sipdown, although this is tasting less amazing than I remember it. I did have to underleaf a bit because I had too little left. Maybe it’s because when I think Kashmir tea now, I think of that amazeballs concoction in Edmonton… no chai will ever compare. Seriously.
Had this the other night after I went to Pekoe Tea Lounge, and there’s something off about it for me – perhaps some strawberries? Still waiting on an ingredient list, which will help me determine what the pinkish yellow soft things are in this brew. It does smelll like lemon meringue and taste (mostly) like it, minus anything crust-like, however I’m reserving rating it until I know more about this tea and try it again.
Had this last night, before bed. It’s an interesting tea, and I wish I knew what was in it. Took a bite out of what looked to be dried apples, and I (think?) they were indeed apples. Tasted more like really chewy marzipan though. Unfortunately I’m forgetting most of what this tasted like, other than it surprised me.
Bah. Images not working. I do have a lovely picture, and will add it when I can. So, this is a green chai, which intrigued me enough to get a sample from the owner of Pekoe Tea Lounge. I must say, it’s a delicious blend — however I do think there is some black tea in here as well, or at least something granular that looks like black tea. It’s sweet and earthy in a chai-like way, with all of the requisite spices in there… cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, black pepper. I wish I’d grabbed more!
Bah. I can’t upload images from my phone! I took a great one for this Tea.
Went into Pekoe Tea Lounge today because my fancy phone told me it was nearby. Talked to the owner about where he gets his Tea from… now I know but they’re different names and several companies. Easier if I post this way then, right?
pretty Sure I under leafed this, will have to try again at home. Definitely chocolate, just a but weak and got a touch bitter as it cooled.
2 min steep, No idea temperature
I stumbled on Pekoe Tea Lounge as I was walking down the street. I had this one in house. I have been SEARCHING forever for a great tasting, not too artificial or chemical tasting apricot tea. This one smelled so good. Like sweet, dried but juicy, apricots. I ordered a large French press. I am unsure how long it steeped for but I am guessing between 3-5 min before I pressed the plunger down. It tasted like a medium bold black tea with a nice apricot flavour. It is slightly artificial but still quite delicious. There is a very slight sweetness. Very similar to fresh, dried apricots. The tea got astringent towards the end of the French press but I am not surprised as it would have been sitting for about an hour.
This one is OK. I don’t think I care for the Ceylon-heavy base tea, but I do like the flavours. It’s almost more peach than strawberry, even though it does smell quite strongly of strawberry.
This is another one I think would be better iced – either cold steep or flash chilled.
