Egyptian Chamomile is one of the first teas my mother gave me when I was younger. It was a staple in our household, normally reserved for those nights we couldn’t sleep or weren’t feeling good. It is known to be a mild sedative and also for its ability to calm an upset stomach, which is why my mother always pulled it out when we were sick. It is also naturally caffeine free so you’ll commonly see it listed as an ingredient in various herbal and bedtime blends. The flavor is mild and somewhat sweet with a slight taste of apples. You can drink it on its own, blend it with other herbals, or serve it with a large drizzle of honey to ease a sore throat. While I don’t generally purchase chamomile on its own, it is still something great to have on hand. You’ll find it listed as an ingredient in many of the teas in my cupboard.

Out of the six teas I’ve sampled from Steeped Tea, Coconut Calypso is the most colorful. The large leaves of white tea are sprinkled with blue mallow flowers and delicate pink rosebuds, giving it a somewhat romantic feel. As much as I love the way this tea looks, it is unfortunately the one I enjoyed the least. To start off, it has such an unappealing smell that I struggled to drink it. Scent is such a huge part of what I enjoy about tea, if the tea doesn’t smell good it ruins the entire experience. The unpleasant scent does tend to dissipate as the tea cools and isn’t nearly as noticeable when I cold steep this blend overnight. It seems to come out at its strongest when the tea is prepared hot. So as a solution, I’ve stopped preparing this tea hot.

While this doesn’t taste quite like a Piña Colada, it is delicious. The flavor tastes strongly of brown sugar with all of its maple goodness. Since the pineapple and coconut flavors don’t stand out as much this blend tastes more like pineapple upside down cake. Still tasty, but not quite what I had expected. The pineapple did come out more once I iced this tea down, but the coconut flavor stayed in the background keeping it from truly tasting like a piña colada.

I love dessert teas, they have all of the flavor of a well crafted dessert without any of the calories. Crème Carmello has that wonderful deep burnt sugar flavor you find in crème brûlée. It’s seriously delicious and the addition of hazelnuts only makes it better. I’ve never had hazelnut crème brûlée, I’m not even sure if it is a thing, but if it is I imagine it tastes just like this tea.

Someone was giving away samples of this at a local flea market recently. I’d never even heard of “Steeped Tea” as a company, so I had to google it. Looks like it’s basically Epicure but with loose tea. I’ve never been much into those home party business gimmick sales dealios, but I admit to buying random jars of Epicure.
I can’t see me entertaining the notion of doing it with tea though, seems cheap somehow. Like, where does all this tea even come from? I guess I can’t help but compare it to Body by Vi and other ridiculous empty promise pyramid schemes. Soooo negative connotations over here, clearly!
Anyway, this wasn’t half bad, I cold brewed my sample. It was moderately strawberry tasting but pretty hibiscus heavy. The dry leaf smelled freakin amazing though.
I cannot see myself seeking these teas out anytime soon. Though it’s kind of neat that this company exists, as far as getting the word of “loose tea” out to the masses!
I am loving this tea! Its smells so amazing like a nutty caramel dessert. The taste is mild and not to powerful. The color is a beautiful light amber color. I use my Steeped Tea glass tea traveler and add about a teaspoon in the removable fine mesh infuser that it comes with. (perfect for rooibos!) I just keep it in my cup and it never gets to strong or bitter. I received this tea in my consultant kit and I am loving My Steeped Tea ;)
Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut
Had this one this afternoon at work. I didn’t know what it was, but I knew what company it was from and at least some of the ingredients within it and this is the one that popped up.
It’s tart from the hibiscus and the lemon, but it’s not overpowering thankfully. Other than those, I didn’t really notice the other flavours really… Meh…
This one isn’t too bad, but not all that memorable to me.
From my Great Blueberry Taste-off this morning:I’m just not liking this one at all really. The hibiscus is making it weird and combined with the raisins, I just don’t feel that this one is for me at all. This one is really baffling to me. It’s not as bad once it cools down quite a bit, but I’m more of the type to drink my black teas HOT. I don’t usually wait until they are cooled down a bit.
I definitely prefer other blueberry teas to this one. Won’t restock this one. Actually probably going to give it away, so I’ll call this a Sipdown (sort of) and give it to my aunt.
Yet another two packages of tea landed in my mailbox last night from Steeped Tea. This is one of them.
I’ve never been a huge earl grey fan as I get the dreaded “soap” flavour when I have it, so I don’t have high hopes for this one. This one smells very… lemon floor cleaner to me. :(
My first burning sip was terrible. Couldn’t wait to get into this one apparently… either that, or I’m just that tired. That’s probably it… Anyway, it made me want to add milk and sugar so I did. It almost seems to mellow out the lemony smell a lot by adding the milk, which is making it easier to sip now.
It’s actually pretty good!! Milk and sugar make it better for sure. It’s now a slightly sweet, almost like lemony treat… Lemon is by far the most predominant flavour, but when you smell this one you expect no less. The orange is a nice touch as I think it seems to mellow out the lemon just slightly… or maybe it just compliments it. Either way, it’s a nice addition.
Verdict! I will drink this one and not give it away. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if I drink it up fairly fast as it’s sort of summer outside and this is the season for all things fruity and light and refreshing. So yes… I will, but I think it will be fast and I think that I won’t restock. It’s not one I would have chosen normally and I honestly don’t think I would think to rebuy. Glad I got to try it out though.
Edit I will admit though. It still has a bit of floor cleaner-ness to it, but it’s not nessecarily in a bad way…? Does that make sense?
Sipping on a cup of this now. Really smooth with vanilla notes. The maple is a little less discernible and I found that I needed to add a pinch of sugar to bring the maple forward. The cinnamon is subtle but I like that, because cinnamon can be sometimes aggressive and I like that I can enjoy the three flavors – vanilla, maple and cinnamon – rather than an overpowering cinnamon note.
A really tasty cuppa.
I got this with my monthly tea-zer program through Steeped tea. I was surprised to see this one as I was thinking about buying 50g of it, but decided against. Now I have a 50g bag to enjoy!
I’m going to be comparing this one to the Nova Scotia Wild Blue tea that my dad got me for Christmas as that’s the one that’s definitely the closest. This tea is nothing like the Blueberry Jam from Davidstea. I didn’t care for that one all that much. But this one and the Wild Blue, I LOVE.
Anyways, this one is VERY similar to WIld Blue. Now, I’m going on memory of the Wild Blue as I haven’t had it in a while, but rereading my note on it is refreshing my memory a little bit.
This one is quite nice. I do wish the black tea base was just a bit milder, so the blueberries could take more of front seat in this one. But that’s not to say that the blueberries don’t to some degree already take a front seat. It’s just I’m not getting the juicy blueberry taste from this one that I was with the Wild Blue.
I was just thinking… I did steep this for 3mins when Steeped Tea recommends 2mins for their black teas. I probably over steeped it, which could explain why I feel like I’m getting some bitterness in the tea. I think next time I would do more than a 1.25tsp for 12oz but do a shorter steep to see if I can kick up the blueberry flavour but drive down the bitterness.
Overall, not a bad tea. Just needs some tweaking. If I still get the bitterness after a 2min steep, then we’ll have to talk. haha
This was another sample that I was a little afraid of. I don’t normally do well with anything licorice.
This isn’t your average licorice tea. The anise is mild and gentle, there is some creamy tones, the black base is present, and maybe a hint of nutty from the rooibos. All in all, I don’t hate this, I don’t think I would drink it everyday, but I’ve had two cups of it tonight.
Thanks Sil for a sample of this interesting tea. :))
