This tea is really lovely if you like fruit teas, but prefer the taste of black teas. It has a lovely reddish colour and an almost rooibos-like sweetness to it. It has a very noticable taste of cherry. It’s a nice and not-too-strong tea.

Flavors: Cherry

This is probably my favourite earl grey EVER. It’s got this almost creamy flavour naturally that other earl greys really like. A perfect tea, good for both light and strong brews.

drank Christmas Chai by Steeped Tea
3 tasting notes

It’s not a bad chai tea, but very average. It has a light cinnamon taste, but I prefer my chai quite strong. It’s very mild for a chai, which isn’t bad but just not for me. It is listed as a gingery tea, but I didn’t really taste the ginger. The cinnamom and cardamon is definitely noticable, however.

For a stronger taste, I recommend using double the tea than one would normally use. It’s certainly not a bad tea, just not anything spectacular like Steeped Tea’s usual fare.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger

drank Peaches and Cream by Steeped Tea

This tea is light and peachy. Although I’m also tasting mango in here… Added a bit of sugar and it tastes good. Still not better than DT’s version.

drank Harvest Spice by Steeped Tea
118 tasting notes

This tea smells like a cinnamon candle. (Which is weird in a tea) And not surprisingly, tastes very strongly of cinnamon. I figured I’d try it since it was sent to me. It has a hint of black tea of course but its mostly cinnamon and spice. Warming.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices

I don’t know what that icky flavour is, but its disgusting. I think I maybe taste the coconut and vanilla – which are both ingredients I HATE… Oh well.

drank Pumpkin Pie by Steeped Tea
386 tasting notes

Just tried this plain, didn’t even bother making a latte. Basically paid $9.50 (after tax) for a tea that tastes like rooibos. Pumpkin pie my foot.

Flavors: Rooibos

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML
Evol Ving Ness

Try steeping with cooler water: 195-185.

Kristal

this cup was done with 190 F water (taking your advice from a different pumpkin tea compared to my usual 200F). With this tea, the dry leaf didn’t even smell like any pumpkin flavoring, unlike even pumpkin cheesecake from DAVIDs. Ingredients are rooibos, safflowers and flavoring; it must be light flavoring at that. Gunna try pumpkin cheesecake (DAVIDS) around 185, but this tea is just plain disappointing :(

Evol Ving Ness

:(

Might be a good one to mix with one of DT’s more exuberant pumpkin teas if you have one on hand.

Evol Ving Ness

I am thinking of one with either killer cinnamon or clove or both.

Kristal

That carrot cake tea with the strong licorice root may work!. I may give some away too.

Evol Ving Ness

Sounds like a plan. I’ve had success with blending things that just were not joyful on their own.

Kristal

Can’t remember who recommended this to me, but whenever I have a tea I want to get rid of I tend to post it up for grabs either on here or on reddit.com in the forun “cup on me”. That’s what I did for this tea, so I hope the next person enjoys it.

I will, however, use up Pumpkin Cheesecake from DAVIDs by mixing it with other teas for lattes.

Well, it is one of those days where I do not have much of an intro. I caught a spider and put it outside, I made a giant rice-filled sack to act as a cooling pad, and a drank tea. All the cleaning and redoing of my room I did yesterday left me very sore and worn out, so for the most part today I have taken it easy and tried not to melt in the oppressive heat.

Today I am looking at an herbal blend from Steeped Tea, Curious Cumin, a mix of…well a lot of things: Fennel, anise, cinnamon bits, silver lime blossoms, cumin, turmeric, goji berries, lemongrass, rose blossom leaves, peppermint leaves, pistachios, pomegranate blossoms, cardamom, sunflower blossoms, cornflower blossoms, safflowers, natural flavors. I was…ha…curious to try this herbal blend because it has a few ingredients I am rather fond of, especially cumin, cardamon, turmeric, and pistachios. These things show up a lot in Indian food, which is probably well known to be a favorite cuisine of mine. Plus the description lists it as savory, and I do adore herbal blends with a heavy savory quality, so when asked if I wanted to try a few teas, this one seemed like a good choice. The aroma was a bit of a cacophony, surprisingly sweet and very spice heavy. Notes of nuttiness, fennel, citrus, and flowers give it a strong perfumed finish. Totally not what I expected, a little odd and intense though not necessarily unpleasant.

Steeping in my glass apparatus, the aroma is pretty intense, it has a real weight to it. Notes of cumin, fennel, pepper, turmeric, and lemons. Surprisingly little flower and surprisingly sweet for such earthy spice notes, but fennel is like that. The aroma of the liquid is peppery and spicy, earthy and herbal, with an undertone of lemongrass and flowers. The main note is fennel, with cumin being fairly light.

So with all those aroma notes being so sweet I was expecting a mouth full of syrup, but no, it is fairly savory and earthy, bordering on medicinal. Strong notes of fennel and turmeric, with a middle of cumin and pepper, and a finish of lemongrass and a sweetness that just shows up and lingers. When the tea cools a bit it starts being sweeter in the middle and picks up more floral notes. I am not sure if I like this blend or not, there is definitely a lot going on, and the flavors do clash a little. It is not unpleasant but there is a lot of mouth noise and I found it hard to focus on just one note, also I was a little sad there was no real sign of pistachio in the taste, but since pistachios are one of my favorite things ever, me being sad is only expected. I say give this tea a try if you are a fan of really chaotic herbal blends/teas, or ones very heavy on spices and herbs.

This is a decent chamomile, but I honestly prefer the mellow stale grocery store tea bags to this. I don’t enjoy the fresh and almost fierce flavour of looseleaf chamomile. Still, I really enjoy trying new brands of things and will drink this until its gone.

The good news is that it does not oversteep (it has been sitting in my cup for 2 hours because I forgot about it) and also can be brewed multiple times.

Flavors: Biting, Flowers, Lemon, Pepper

I’m the same way. Bagged chamomile just tastes better to me. I keep hoping to find a loose chamomile I like, but I haven’t yet.

Arby Robilliard

I can send you a sample of this if you want to try it, but I’m not sure it will be any better than the loose ones you tried.

rosebudmelissa

No need to go to the trouble. Just keep me in mind if you do run across a good one.

I like the strong flavours of sweet winter spices like clove and cinnamon in this. It is a bit sweet and a bit spicy. The black pu’erh base is quite tasty. I taste tannins (but not in a bitter way) and Earthiness from the fermented base. I can’t make out all the flavours from the pu’erh because of the spices in it, but I can taste some fermented flavours. I like pu’erh in this more than a plain black because the pu’erh flavours go really well with the peppercorns and molasses flavours.

Very strong and fresh peppermint. This has a strong menthol flavour, so if you prefer mellow mint flavours, this might not be for you. The good news is that it can be brewed hot or iced and is easily resteeped a few times.

I don’t know why I bought this. Perhaps it sounded wonderful and the smell was enticing. This has a vague sour strawberry taste that is wrapped in something musty. It doesn’t add to the tea at all. Tried it numerous times with different steeping, sweetners etc. nothing helped. Pass.

Flavors: Cherry, Musty, Sour, Strawberry, Tea

Wonderful tea. My favorite of all time actually. Lovely strong Pu’erh with the listed toffee and caramel flavors but I also taste a hint of coffee, chocolate and nuts. Amazing. I’d have it all the time except I find Steeped Tea’s organization irritating. I’d prefer to pick up my tea when I need it rather than having to chase someone down.

I had high hopes for this one… It’s not as strong as I would have liked, despite me steeping it for ages and using a fair bit of the leaves. The smell is good, though! And it does make a good iced version (though again, not as strong as I would like). Some people might like the milder taste, as a general rule, I do not. :P

Kristal

Just double checked my review of this tea from the summer, and apparently I thought it was pretty weak too!

drank Apple Crumble by Steeped Tea
329 tasting notes

Another winner from my care package! The smell is pretty much on par with the legit apple crumble my flatmate’s girlfriend made last night, haha.

Other than DT’s Apple Studel, I’m not sure I’ve had an apple tea with a black tea base. I tried this one plain, and with a bit of milk and I loved both cups. Now that I’m transitioning into autumn (and winter is coming, woe!), I’m getting back into those warm, comforting teas, when normally at this time of year I’d be going hard core into the iced stuff.

My first care package from home had this in it!

Honestly, this is probably in my top three of teas I’ve sampled from Steeped Tea. It’s really good, and I was craving some cinnamon tea. The cinnamon, vanilla and maple are muted as individual flavours, but whatever combination they’re in here works. I added some milk and this was a delightful addition to my dessert. Yum.

Kristal

Wish I could drink black tea to try it! I have bought from steeped tea numerous times but have been disappointed more times than not lately, so I wish I would try this since most people who have it really enjoy it.

raven22

The past few times I’ve had Steeped tea has been what others have given me, so I haven’t actually bought any myself in a long time, LOL. Black tea is like a staple in my diet – I don’t know how I would be able to go without!

drank Amaretto by Steeped Tea
34 tasting notes

For a tea with papaya, I didn’t find this pushed the wrong buttons for me. The scent is incredible, reminding me strongly of the now defunct Teopia’s blissful “Amaretto Cherry,” however the almond flavour notes do not quite come close to the strength the scent would seem to imply. It’s a little more vague than you’d expect, though the tea still packs a punch of flavour, enough to stand on its own even with milk added, which is my preference.

For me, it’s a nice approximation to a nutty amaretto tea, though not quite as obvious in its almond as I expected. I still enjoy it quite thoroughly, though! Simply be warned that the flavour will differ from the scent you might first preview. If you can sample it before you order it, I would highly suggest you do. Especially since I was ready to give it a miss based on the papaya, yet still found it enjoyable – many other reviewers, it seems, found the opposite to be true.

Flavors: Almond, Fruity, Nutty

Okay, I opened this tea without realizing it’s name had BERRY in it, thinking it was some kind of empowering tea. I know, I can be silly. It has a very powerful berry aroma though. I made a pot….and immediately enjoyed it. So I am drinking it again. I love the berry notes of this tea. It is not sweet, but has such a great berry flavour you would swear it is. I can drink a whole 1.5l pot in a few hours, it tastes great all the way to the last drop.
