Another sample from the festival this weekend. This tea is alright. It has bit more hibiscus than I would like, but then I’m not usually a fan of hibiscus in anything. There is also a pleasant berry flavour. Overall, this tea doesn’t wow me, so it isn’t likely that I’ll be buying more of it.

This was my first ever black tea and I loved the creaminess to it. I was always afraid that black teas were strong and bitter but boy was I wrong. I love this Tea!

Smells like a light, white coconut. The coconut flavour is not overpowering; you can still taste the white leaves. Looks beautiful steeped – leaves really come and it’s a gorgeous light gold colour. Very refreshing flavour, little aftertaste, mild notes.

Flavors: Coconut, Rose

drank Amaretto by Steeped Tea

I found the papaya for some reason to take over this tisane for some reason. The nuttiness is there, but in the background for me. I see where they are going to get toward the amaretto flavour, but it’s not quite there.

Thank you to Kristal for sending me a sample of this! This has been a fun first exchange on steepster.

I really don’t know how to describe this tea other than to say it tastes like a warm root beer float, without the carbonation. You might think it sounds disgusting, but it’s remarkably good. The best thing about it is that it lingers long after I’ve finished the last sip. It’s a wonderfully warming tea that would go well in an eggnog latte— especially around this time of the year.

The one thing I like most about this tea is that it’s strong, balanced, and has a bold flavour that I don’t think I’ve found in any other tea. I’m tempted to try Steeped Teas again just to see if it’s a universal attribute.

Note: I drank this with 1 tsp sugar and 2 tsp milk because I unfortunately untaught myself how to drink black teas black. I’m going to try to cut back on my additives in the future.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Maple, Root Beer, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

First off, thank you to Kristal for sending me a sample of this tea. It’s the first one I’ve ever tried from Steeped Tea. Ironically, it’s packaged in Ancaster/Hamilton— and you sent it to me from Northern Ontario. How fun!

I tried this tea tonight because I wanted something non-caffeinated before bed. It’s been so long since I’ve had a rooibos.

First steeping was lovely. It was sweet, slightly berry-ish, and had an incredible flavour when inhaled. It’s funny how that inhaled flavour doesn’t translate much to sipping. The steeped tea smells much more fragrant than it tastes. What I like most about rooibos is that it has that overwhelming almost alcohol/almond flavour to it. I haven’t had it in so long that I think I really missed that about rooibos. The tea starts off sweet, and then turns woodsy and hay like. The colour is a beautiful copper red as well.

There’s not a ton of added flavour, which is nice. I find that many rooibos teas have an artificial aftertaste. This one lacks any sort of artificial-ness. It tastes like a basic red rooibos with a gentle berry finish.

The second steeping was hay-like and earthy. There was no real berry flavour or sweetness to it. The colour changed to a much paler yellow-copper. I don’t think this tea is suited to multiple steepings.

I would probably get this tea again if offered. I’m unfortunately a little iffy about the whole catalogue-ordering style of shopping, especially when their head office is right near me. It would be nice to feel less pressured to buy at least 50g of tea, and to receive samples instead.

Flavors: Alcohol, Almond, Berry, Decayed wood, Earth, Hay, Rooibos

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! For me, this tea is just okay and I’ve been using it up buy mixing it with lemon myrtle and drinking it when I’m at work. One of the nice things about Steeped tea is that it appears that none of their flavorings are artificial. But I agree about the catalogue ordering style- I really wish I didn’t have to commit to 50g every time I ordered. If you look at my tasting note for this tea, I went on a little rant about that :P

Alyssa

Hey Kristal, I saw that on your note. It looks like there’s a consultant around the corner from my house. I think my foray into loose leaf tea has only been limited to Davids and Bulk Barn and maybe one or two others. Perhaps my tastes will change as I venture out into the world, haha.

Kristal

Haha, for me it’s mostly DAVIDs, but I’m just went to my local tea shop and I’m loving that place :). I’m def going back!

Well this one is exactly what it says it us. Lemon and ginger. It’s citrus with some spice. Not my favourite, but okay. It’s good for someone with a cold which is what I Have… lucky me

Kristal

Love this tea! Just bought 100g not too long ago. But then again, I really enjoy lemongrass and ginger… :)

2tsp for a 300mL pot at 85C. Steeped 3 minutes 30 seconds.

Don’t oversteep this beautiful tea — it will get bitter. I can taste a faint bitterness in the finish. Shorter steep next time.

Dry leave is very pretty: long pai mu tan leaves with blossoms. Strong but not cloying scent of peaches and papaya.

Liquor is dark for a white tea, verging towards bronze.

Juicy pai mu tan with peaches and papaya dominating, with some mango notes. Delicious.

Kristal

For me, I like my greens (on average) steeped about 2min at 175 degrees F. Of course, every tea and person is different though :)

Two things that annoy me about Steeped tea are the facts that I cannot read an entire ingredients list of one particular tea before ordering and the fact I cannot order anything less than 50 grams of a particular type of tea (unless it is part of a collection, in which you may get 25g of 6 types of tea). I decided to order this tea because it sounds like it would make an amazing latte. I pictured a tea that was rooibos base with chunks of dried strawberries and dehydrated yogurt pieces (think strawberry rhubarb parfait from DAVIDs without hibiscus). Unfortunately, what I received was a tea that was rooibos based with different flavourings. When I opened the bag up I certainly smelled the strawberry flavour, but after making this tea two ways (Way 1: 15grams steeped in 8oz of boiled water, mixed with frothed milk and a hint of sugar as a latte. Way 2: 1.5tsp steeped in 8oz of boiled water plain) I can concur that maybe a hint of the flavour is in the taste of the tea, but that’s it. It’s basically just the taste of rooibos.

This tea was a letdown. It’s not gross, just underwhelming. Definitely not a repurchase: I will use it up by mixing it with other teas and drinking it at work when I do not pay attention to what I’m drinking really. The one thing I’ll say is that I’m glad I used up a third of the tea already through the latte and simple cup…

I have always been curious about Steeped Tea. An acquaintance of mine sells it, but I didn’t really want to buy it from her just in case I didn’t like it, because then I would feel like I would have to continue buying from her, even if I didn’t like the tea. I have also thought about being a consultant. So many of my friends are into the “sell from home” type of thing….maybe I should give it a try. So I guess I needed to try the tea to see if I was really interested. And then years went by and I never got around to sampling some of the tea.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to a trade/craft sale and there was a lady selling this. I asked her what her fav black tea and she suggested this one. I thought, here’s my chance to try this company, and I like earl grey generally, so I will give it a shot.
On to the tea….the bergamot is a little strong in this blend. There is a hint of vanilla but not “creamy” enough in my opinion. The base seems to be a tad astringent but maybe I should lower the temp next time I brew.
Overall, I like the cream earl grey from Zen tea and the blend from my local tea shop more than this offering.
The price point of $10/bag is a little too high to pay (in my opinion). But maybe that was just what this particular lady was selling it for, I’m not sure what price they usually are.

I will have to try the other tea that I bought from the company, but I think I will pass on becoming a consultant for this company…..maybe I should sell my own hand crafted items instead!

That was my overall impression. Okay tea, but too high a price point for what you get.

keychange

I have only tried one tea from this company, coco-sweet sencha. I loved it and am getting some for myself. I do want to try more of their teas, but I wish I could try more without hosting a party and all that jazz.

Nicole

I was thinking it was like Tupperware or Pampered Chef – you could find a consultant online to buy from without a party.

tigress_al

I am not even sure how it works online. I have never even looked at their website actually!

Kristal

The thing I find with steeped tea is that its more cost effective per gram when you order 100g vs 50g. Many teas are around $10/50g but then about $17/100g. It really makes it costly to try new teas. I already find 50g a lot to commit to, never mind 100g…

I don’t like home selling parties in general, so I have a consultant I found online and I just shoot her a facebook message every time I want to buy some tea, and pick it up at her house.

Not too bad. Has nice caramel and toffee flavours to it, but it’s not one I’d grab for very often. Will probably try as a latte next.

love these types of teas for lattes!

This is one of my favorite iced fruit teas. I make a pitcher of it and usually add a small amount of sugar to the pitcher (about 1/4 cup) and it adds a hint of sweetness to offset some of the bitterness that it can taste like on its own. Very refreshing!

The best Cream of Earl Grey I have had. super creamy and has the right balance of bergamot. I have tried a lot of other companies version of this tea and nothing measures up to it. Definitely an earl grey lover’s staple! (You can buy it here: http://www.mysteepedtea.com/TEAWITHKAYLA/shop/PRODUCTDETAIL.aspx?prod=1011 )

drank Lemolicious by Steeped Tea
312 tasting notes

Wow, this is the last tea in my cupboard I had yet to try! Won’t be trying anything new for the next several weeks: I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t buy any more teas until September and until my cupboard reaches less than 40 types of tea (when I made this promise a little over a week agoI had about 52 teas, now I have exactly 40. So I’m well on my way :)).

I cold brewed this tea overnight. It’s interesting that a lemon tea is red, but that is obviously due to hibiscus. When I tried it I got a mix of mildly tart and sour, which is the hibiscus-lemon combo. Pretty decent and standard flavour I’ve been having all summer in terms of iced tea. One of the better iced teas I got from Steeped tea, I think the lemon flavour is done well. I’ll have no problem using this one up, but like a broken record I have to say that for $4ish for a pitcher, I can probably make a similar tasting iced tea using Meyer Lemon and Strawberry Pomegranate tea bags from Stash for a quarter (or less!) of the price. I’m always mentioning the price, which I hope isn’t tacky, but budgeting is on my mind a lot and I think the taste/quality of a tea needs to merit the price

Flavors: Lemon, Pleasantly Sour, Tart

go you! getting things under control!

Kristal

Thanks! Actually, last night I even managed to get my cupboard down to 37 :) 2 teas were used up in a pitcher of iced tea and the other tea (Cocomint cream- grabbed it from work a few days ago) was unfortunately rancid so had to be thrown out :(. To be honest though, I was more interested in the container than the tea because it has a screw on lid so it’s really secure for traveling. Either way though, it’s nice to see the numbers go down so fast! :)

Kristal

hows’s your sipdowns doing?

raven22

I totally get you on the price thing! I love making iced teas as well, and a lot of the flavours from Davids work really good for it, but you’re right, per pitcher the cost is really pricey. I’ve also ranked teas lower on this for being pricy (even if it’s just a single hot cup), so no, it’s a legit thing to be concerned with. :)

Kristal

Haha, other people have told me not to be worried either, it’s just I mention prices so often I feel guilty about it, lol.

I have also rated teas lower if the taste doesn’t merit the price. Also, I love a lot of DAVIDs fruit blends too but agreed that they can be pricey. Although, they are cheaper than Steeped tea. David’s herbal fruit blends are mostly around $7.50/50 grams, while Steeped tea’s are between $8-$10/50 grams (with more than half being $9+). Mind you, the price is a bit better if you buy 100grams, but still, that’s crazy.

Either way, I have made the decision to not buy any loose leaf fruit blends for the rest of the year (possibly til next summer), because I found some excellent bagged herbal fruit teas to make iced tea with. They are True Blueberry + Black Cherry Berry from Celestial Seasonings and Raspberry Hibiscus from Stash. They are wonderful cold brewed and taste just like the fruits they say they are. They are $1 or less per pitcher and are better than most loose leaf blends I have had. I’ll save my money for buying expensive loose leaf green tea, because then it makes a serious difference :).
