drank Highland Toffee by Steeps
52 tasting notes

I love this tea. It’s probably one of my favourite teas ever.

I had it in a Steeps shop with my wife – she recommended I try it. It was the first Steeps tea I ever had, and I adored it.

It’s quite a strong, black tea which I really like. It’s got a really soft caramel undertone with toffee notes in there. It’s rather rewarding to find a tea that actually tastes like toffee, instead of being reminiscent of toffee.

Steeps tea have really nice quality tea, and this is evident in this blend. I like to have mine with honey, but you could definitely experiment with milk or sugar, or whatever you fancied. It’s also one of their most popular teas, which really helps speak to the calibre of the tea.

Flavors: Caramel, Toffee

Not much flavour in this tea…at least not like the name claims…there is no “Zing” in this tea…its name sounds so promising, but the tea falls flat.

Once again this is a random tea I bought at the Steeps store in Edmonton and was delighted in my choice. A creamy, toffee tasting black tea that is exactly what it claims to be…I love toffee and this tea tastes like toffee. It is a bit astringent, but still good.

drank Almond Joy by Steeps
157 tasting notes

I bought this tea at “Steeps” a cafe that sells loose tea in Edmonton, Alberta at the University of Alberta and I was expecting an average tea, but I was surprised this tea is fabulous. I steeped it four times and each time was as good as the first. It is full of flavour…almonds, coconut and I taste lemon, not very much chocolate, but a mouth full of delight.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut

Sounds amazing! I think I found their online store ( http://steepstea.com/ )but I couldn’t find that flavor listed :(

drank Blueberry Black by Steeps
934 tasting notes

This one sucked me in for its juicy blueberry aroma in the store. It was quite fragrant and I imagined this to taste like a blueberry candy.

Steeping this changes the story. The tea, while maintaining the aroma, loses its blueberriness in the world of flavour. It’s mostly just black tea with a hint of blueberry. The blueberry flavour sits on the fence between artificial and genuine. Unfortunately, I find the black tea a bit too astringent than what I was expecting. It’s one of those teas that misleads you by smelling better dry than how it smells and tastes once steeped. Still alright. Will use up my little tin but won’t repurchase.

I get this tea (bagged, in a cup) at a local cafe. It is wonderful – amazing vanilla, and mild rooibus. Lovely pairing.

One of my all time favorites! So warm and cozy on a cold winters day and the leaves stand multiple steepings beautifully.

drank Nutty for Almonds by Steeps
25 tasting notes

Even though this is a mellow tea, the simple flavors are really evident. First the black tea, followed by a sweet almond after-taste. I found, like any nut tea, I had to steep it for at least 7 minutes to really taste the almonds.
It could use a little more “oomph”, but overall it’s not bad!

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

drank Nutty for Almonds by Steeps

Like many of steeps’ tea this lacks a little boldness and isn’t very strong. Having said this, this is the perfect tea for a little treat on a cold evening. It’s naturally sweet, has real roasted almond slices in it and paired with a drop of skim milk is like a little slice of cake in a tea cup.

drank Rose Tea by Steeps
10 tasting notes

This is a fairly solid rose flavoured tea. I do find it a little over-flavoured and the tea isn’t very strong. So, it’s difficult to get this to be a good, dark black tea as over steeping it provides much too much rose flavour to the cup. It’s a good back up when I can’t make it to Vancouver Island for my favourite Silk Road.

drank Moonlight Lavender by Steeps

Good, but the sage comes through too strongly if oversteeped.

Ramallamas

I thoroughly agree. The sage can really overpower the other herbs.
