Last of Tuesday’s backlog! Hooray! And, there’s not much for backlog from yesterday; I spent the entire day out at interviews/with Robyn, so I really only enjoyed some travel teas.
But anyway, this tea did a spectacular job of satisfying my intense dessert cravings; plus it was another yummy cream cheesey type of tea for the day which was lovely.
My favourite Red Velvet Tea <3
Thank you VariaTEA for providing me with so much of this one! I enjoyed sipping at it late Tuesday night while watching the newest Supernatural episode! It was sweet and yummy with cream cheese icing and everything.
Also what the frick frack was up with that episode! I watched it with Tre and we were just both in emotional turmoil over all the Garth stuff (he was too cute when he was angry/all wolfy) and then the fucking ending! AUIegdpISFCNBPdisgv! Plus of course Norse Mythology, which I love!
While I was out yesterday afternoon I may have went birthday card shopping and picked VariaTEA up a birthday card. Nothing expensive because I’m broke as balls, but still…
So before I sent this all off to Roswell Strange I decided to give it one more try. I was actually really surprised at how good it was this time. I remembered there being a strange, dusty quality to this blend last time I had it but this is like a completely different tea than what I remember. This smells of raspberry but the taste is predominantly chocolate. Really not bad at all. I might even keep some tea bags for myself because I would drink this again. Although I don’t think I would restock it or keep majority of the bags just because there are so many other cups I would reach for first.
I’ve transitioned to teabag mode. This one was an extra add in from the oh so generous VariaTEA who noticed that I have a thing for Stash brand teabags! I was a little hesitant about trying this one, to be honest. I had a really bad experience with DAVIDsTEA’s Red Velvet Cake: it just tasted horribly artificial and generically sweet and yucky. This one looked like it had good ingredients though, and I have faith in Stash – so brewed this one up tonight with decent enough hopes!
So, 1 teabag for 8 oz. of boiling water, steeped for three minutes. The smell is divine: chocolate, and caramel, and cream cheese icing! Mmm! I took an extra long time just smelling this one before sipping, just in case the taste was awful. However, it’s awesome. I get lots of Cream Cheese icing with a rich chocolate and caramel layer of notes underneath. I bet it’d be super good with milk, which of course I don’t have at the moment… Boo.
Anyway, thanks so much VariaTEA! I’m sad this is a sipdown now, because my faith in Red Velvet tea has been pretty well restored. I’m gonna have to go hunting local grocery stores for this: it’s one of few Stash teas that my local Safeway doesn’t carry.
Sidenote: Does anyone on Steepster play Cards Against Humanity? I really want to play it right now, but all the games currently running on Xyzzy have really weird expansions added in…
Mmmmm…both times I’ve tried this I added sugar and almond milk. The first time it tasted like raspberry hot chocolate. The second time was more raspberry taste, less chocolately. I love this tea!
Just had a cup with no milk, only sugar. This has been my favorite way yet. It tastes like berries with a light hint of chocolate and cream. I could definitely drink this every night.
Oh Yes!I LOVE STASH! Lively cherries 、 chocolate,with creamy notes like vanilla ice-cream,what a surprisingly tasty treat! The liquor also reminds me of a yummy chocolate cake with cherries and raspberries ~XD Smooth,with crystal clear and a little tart flavor, warm&gourmet yet refreshing at the same time.Stash is definitely one of my favorite grocery store tea brands.And this tea is as far as I could dream of, with such reasonable prize and endless surprise.So lucky that I finally settle down to Stash (which makes me want to come back again and again ) as to fruit teas LOL(Of course I’m still eager for new brands too :3
