My first thought in smelling this tea is that it reminds me a lot of Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA, which is hardly a bad thing — I happen to quite like this one.
I think it’s sweeter, though. I’d like it a little stronger in flavour — I may use more tea than it suggests next time — but I do like it quite a lot. The aftertaste really makes me smile.
Sweet, creamy, and citrusy, this tea is making me smile (much like the charming owner of this fabulous company).
I love this tea’s scent. The taste is a little too citrusy for me, though I think it could make a beautiful London Fog (Brampton fog? Is there an official ruling for this?). Definitely a nice take on the Earl Grey idea, though, and is making me grin as I drink (my cheeks are going to be hurting by the time I’m done with these leaves, and I look forward to it!)
Sipdown! One of the shared teas between Kittenna, Raritea and I. I figure since they were easy sipdowns, i should at least try to get those down tonight since i haven’t managed very many sipdowns, and word on the street is that there will be a package here soonish. This one smelled pretty darn good when we were looking at it. Sadly, upon brewing it, it’s sort of a weirdly black, sort of caramel ISH kinda tea that doesn’t really make me think of popcorn OR caramel. How sad…
I suspect that some would refer to this as being similar to forever nuts by David’s Tea, at least from what i can remember it tasting like. I like the colour of this brew..it’s a happy place for me today. I like this one…a hint of cinnamon, some almond flavours kicking around..yep works for me tonight AND that puts me at 170 for the evening.
i think i can, i think i can, i think i can….
So this isn’t exactly cupcake tasting to me..but it does have that echo of “red velvet” taste about it. It’s a rooibos tea but doesn’t taste like that woodsy rooibos that i don’t like. instead it’s very muted and takes a background to the other flavours that are trying to hang out with this tea. Overall, not my favourite but not a bad tea. Just happy enough to be splitting this 3 ways haha
Picked this one up at the tea festival in a shared purchase with Kittenna and Raritea. Gotta love being able to pick up sample sizes and then split them 3 ways haha. This one is a green tea and the strawberry taste is pretty darn tasty. Only downside is that as it cools, there’s a floral note hanging out in the background that i don’t like. Did i mention i kind of forgot about it? heh. sooo many shiny things to distract me with tonight…
Sipdown! Thanks to Raritea for a sample of this one.
This basically tastes like a standard coconut green. So fairly tasty, but not really a tea I’d go for too often. However, I think it would be great cold-brewed and sweetened. Since it tastes much like the coconut green I just got in my Amoda tea box, I think I’ll have to try it with that one soon!
Sipdown! Thanks to Raritea for a sample of this one.
I like this rooibos! It tastes very much like a blueberry muffin, light on the blueberry but with a tasty baked goods flavour and little rooibos. I haven’t had a lot of luck with blueberry-flavoured rooibos in the past, so it’s nice to have one that really does work. That said, I think I prefer the blueberry/black tea/rooibos blend from Della Terra.
ETA: Second infusion was also pretty tasty, and the infuser smelled like there was potential for a third, but I opted for a new tea instead :D
Another one from SIL – thanks!
This is cake-E, Bake-E, Crusty, Lusty, Croissant-E!
Out of ALL of that you only saw the word lusty, didn’t you?
Anyhow…this has a deep blueberry flavor in addition to it being muffin-like, which is GOOD because it’s all part of the muffin, right? YUM!
This is a fairly intensely flavored Rooibos and the Rooibos itself even taste deeper than most Rooibos’s – or should I say Rooibos-EYE? Not real sure…perhaps Rooibos is like Deer – it’s Deer – if there is one or 100 of them – is it the same for Rooibos? Or is more than one Rooibos known as Rooibos’s? LOL – teehee! Just jabbering!
This is a nice tisane, tho! Clever! I like it!
This one is a little disappointing. I’d really hoped for more out of this. I steeped it in water that was a little under boiling to prevent the astringency that raritea mentioned. There is guava taste to this but it’s more in the aroma than in the taste of the tea. I almost think this might have been better as a green tea. I’ve tossed the rest into a cold brew to see how that fares tomorrow.
Thanks to Raritea and Sil for this sample!!
It’s… well it’s certainly interesting. I get where the muffin part comes in, though I don’t feel its unique. Something about this profile is annoyingly familiar! Where do I know this taste from??? It’s bakey and sweet, and even a little savoury. I feel like there is salt in there, like you would get in an actual muffin. Still, I know this taste… and it’s gonna drive me nuts. Le sighs…
Anyhow, I noticed a hint of blueberry. And by hint I mean very faint! In fact, I’m sure I wouldn’t have pinpointed it if I hadn’t seen the tasting note. It is definitely there, once you know to look for it of course.
Overall, a comforting cup, but not something I’d be willing to keep in my cupboard.
im a fan of this one, though i likely shouldn’t be today since lack of food today will likely lend itself to caffeine hitting me pretty hard lol. I really want to add just a bit of cream to this to really through the flavours together. I’m not getting the spiciness that kittenna did but i AM getting that espresso flavour that is blending really nicely with the black base. I think i steeped this one a little longer than 3 mins by accident and still there’s no bitterness or astringency so that’s a positive.
I think this could be one of those teas that I have in my cupboard every so often when i need a more coffee like creamy experience.
SIPDOWN! mwahahaha my cupboard goes down, kittenna’s goes up lol Just enough in the bag Rarietea and i split to have a cup for me and a cup for kittenna. Although i reaaaaallly don’t like coconut all that much in teas, we tried this one at the tea festival and it wasn’t too bad. So it made it’s way into our mini purchase since raritea looooveeeesss the coconut!
Now that i’m having it at home, it’s not tooo bad. I am certainly good with this one cup but only because i’m drinking a tea that tastes like tanning lotion smells like. delicious! but oddly weird as well :)
Split purchase with raritea from the toronto tea festival. This is supposed to be a blueberry muffin but i think it’s more muffin than blueberry. That being said, the rooibos in this makes for a pretty decent baked muffin kind of tea. Just wish it was a WEEEEEEEEE little bit more blueberry.
mmmmmmmmmm muffins! wheee!
Sipdown! Thanks to Marie and Sil for giving up a cup of this one :D
I can’t even begin to explain how incredibly delicious this one smells. Sooooo divine. Like… cheesecakey, sweet, peppery, chocolatey… yum! I was trying to think of what the aroma reminded me of, and it’s actually reminiscent of Della Terra’s Chili Chocolate Truffle. However, the flavour is not the same as that tea. There’s a dark background note, kind of like coffee, with a sweetness and delicious creaminess, topped off with a bit of spice. The spice is a bit odd to be in a tiramisu blend, IMO, but oh well. I think the flavour wouldn’t be as good without it. I do think that this blend is one that smells better than it tastes, however the flavour is pretty good. I’m not the biggest fan of spiciness, so I don’t think I’d reach for this tea frequently, but I would definitely seek it out if the mood struck! I’m curious as to how this would taste sweetened…
[Uh, perhaps I should read what’s in tiramisu… espresso! Which explains the coffee note! Go me, for picking up on a flavour! Also – the black base is pretty decent here. Not really any astringency; I think what I am feeling is just the spiciness.]
Thanks for the sample, girls!
ETA: A re-steep in half the water turned out a less flavourful version of the above, with pretty much no spiciness. Reasonably tasty. I do like this blend!
