Ordered a sample of this, because of COURSE I had to try the carrot cake….
Again, like the last two Tea Guys’ rooibos (I just googled ‘what is the plural of rooibos, and found that ’the plural of rooibos is rooibos’…. I did not know that.. lol) I tried, I added milk and sugar to this.
This is another really yummy evening treat… I’m not always looking for this type of thing (creamy/sugar tea), but when I am, I really love it.
There are definite ‘carrot cake’ spice notes, along with the vegetal sweetness of carrot…
This one’s a keeper for me, especially as a decaf option.
This was one of the many of sample sizes I got with my Tea Guys order at the beginning of this year. This is the first one that I have tried and it’s really pleasantly scented! I brewed a cup hot for myself and then cold brewed the rest for my smoothies. The fruity cup of goodness is very strong on the papaya and pineapple. Maybe it was just my sample, but I hardly got any ginger notes to speak of.
This was a strong tea ices, and I could taste it very distinctly through my green smoothie. Not that it was a bad thing, I’m just used to my tea in my smoothies is be a very light addition to them.
I am glad to have tried this tea both ways, and while I cannot say that it would be my fist choice for a repurchase, it was lovely to test out!
Note: this is was a listing for a white blend, Tea Guys sells this as a green and white blend. I’ll make the update in a second.
Flavors: Green Beans, Pineapple, Tropical
This is my second rooibos from Tea Guys, and I’ve gotta say, I’m liking their rooibos.
Upon opening the bag, I was hit with a most definite sea salt caramel thing… there are nuggets (mine are round, not square like the picture) of caramel mixed in, and I’m a sucker for that… When I’m going for a flavoured tea, I love when I can SEE a bit of what’s going into that flavour. These aren’t little nuggets, either.. They’re pretty substantial for a tea. It’s great!
I might like this one even better than the bourbon egg nog one last night, because this one isn’t as sweet on it’s own. Being in control of the level of sweetness (if any at all, even), is something I really do appreciate, and this tea totally hands that control over to the sipper.
I know that I could add sugar to this right now and amp up that caramel taste, but I’m enjoying this with a little cream at the moment… The scent is very caramel-y, while the sip is a little more subdued… It’s really nice, actually.
I can see myself craving this as a night-time treat
ETA: halfway through this cup, I added just a sprinkle of raw sugar. Oh, man, is it good! This is a super yummy rooibos, and I’m really glad I grabbed 3oz of this. :)
Finding myself out of decaf teas, I went online searching for rooibos, and decided to place an order with Tea Guys (the flavours all sounding amazing…).
I ordered a sample of this to try, and I’m really liking it.
The scent when I opened the bag was fantastic… bourbon-y, maple goodness.
I added a splash of milk to this, since I tend to like spicier rooibos with milk, and thought it would bring out the ‘egg nogg’ feeling… It did.
This tea is downright decadent treated that way, and I’ve got it steeping for a second round right now (I usually get 2 steeps out of my rooibos, even though the second is oftentimes far less flavourful than the first… ).
The sight of this was happy – it’s a colorful, full looking tea. The smell hits you right out of the freshly opened bag – whoah, nice aroma, cinnamon and spice and everything nice.
The brewed cup color is a nice red that reminds me of autumn, cranberries, and fall happiness. Now on to the tasting…
The taste is interesting and nice – a hottish cinnamon touch with the background of cloves, followed by a brief impression of bitterness from a fruit rind. I don’t get much of the orange effect, but I’m guessing the bitter rind is the part of that; I’d say a citrus zest.
I’m not a bitter fan but this is only a mild bitterness – very good stuff.
Flavors: Bitter, Cinnamon, Citrus Zest, Clove
Being a Canadian I have been searching for a perfect maple tea… and I think I may have just found it. As soon as I opened this up and I was hit with the delicious aroma of maple. Once brewed there is a nice smokiness from the tea base that helps offset the sweetness of the maple. I found all the of the flavors worked with one another and this one was best enjoyed once it cooled to around room temperature. If you are a fan or even remotely like maple, this is definite must try!
Flavors: Cocoa, Maple
Very surprised by this one. The dry leaf was nice but just okay, but once brewed – yum! This tastes just like German chocolate cake … if it were a tea. The blend is spot on and is incredibly smooth from start to finish. I drank this one straight and can’t wait to try the latte recipe!
Maple. Sugar. Creamy. Cinnamon. Cookies.
This tea is so much more than I expected! There’s so much in it. It’s so full and rich. This is definitely another win from the Tea Guys!
My only complaint is that I can taste the black tea base a little too much. Think I need to steep it around 4 mins instead of 5 and a half. But once I figure out the steeping, this tea is gonna make for an awesome cuppa!
A must try for any dessert tea lover! :D
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cookie, Creamy, Maple, Sugar, Sweet
Sample sipdown-yah! Well, kinda yah…Don’t know if this actually counts since I sipped this sample down the same day I got a 3oz pack of it in the mail xD But I’m gonna count it!
This one has really grown on me. At first I hated the dry leaf smell, but it’s kinda grown on me. Don’t know how much I’ll love it after 3oz, but since I’m drinking a crap load of decaf teas these days, it will be nice to have another creamy vanilla tea to add to my selection! Still pretty impressed by how well they blended this tea! Delicious!
Again with this tea company being underrated!!
Seriously, you guys. If you’re into flavored teas, check this company out! They really make their blends spot on!
This tea was shockingly good too. I hated the dry leaf smell, reminded me of a hookah I smoked once. xD But can’t place which flavor that tobacco was.
The tea itself was actually a good mix of sour chamomile and the creamy, smooth vanilla bean flavor. The vanilla bean dominated this tea, but you could still taste the chamomile. Really well done-especially for a chamomile!
Another win from the, Tea Guys!!! :D :D
Flavors: Creamy, Smooth, Sour, Sweet, Vanilla
Soo Tea Guys is so insanely underrated. I’m not even joking. I don’t see why they aren’t more popular. They were one of the first companies I ordered from.
This one really surprised me. When I opened the sample bag it smelled super strong of egg nog. Like way stronger than DTT’s Winter Nog.
Oversteeped it on the first steep, so had to dump it. Second steep wasn’t as strong, but I definitely tasted egg nog and creaminess. There was definitely woody notes in there too from the rooibos. I think the first steep would have been better. But the second steep wasn’t that bad. I’m excited to finish off this sample! :D This really is a great egg nog tea! If you like egg nog I think you’ll like this tea! :D
Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Eggnog, Smooth, Wood
This is a very good coconut cream, made less impressive by a little chocolate scratch-n-sniff flavor. :)
It’s already creamy. With the addition of some actual cream and minus the chocolate this could have been a favorite coconut. I’m glad to have tried it! Thanks, Flyawaybirdie!
I like cassis, one of my favourite ice cream blends is cassis with coconut. I like the mix of tart and sweet and that unique black currant taste.
I am of two minds about this tea. There is something off putting about the scent where it does occasionally remind me of what ifjuly found ( cat urine), but at times the flavour is pleasant. It has a tartness to it which is rather hibiscus like but there is also cream, a reference to the sweet and slight spiciness of cassis, and a certain depth and richness to the base. It is not as sharp as some blackcurrant teas I have had. This is probably not a tea I would buy but it is not terrible if you can avoid that occasional smell.
Thanks * JustJames* for the experience.
There is a store across the street called Lollicup. They mostly are known for their boba (sp?) tea, but they also offer loose leaf. It isn’t kept well, but it is cheap. They get their tea mostly from Adagio and Tea Guys and a lot of the teas are only .25 cents more than what I would pay online, so I don’t feel too bad stopping in. I wasn’t quite prepared for a fall of mostly caffeine free. I am running dangerously low on options. I ran across a few rooibos and honeybush options at Lollicup when doing our mid week banana run today.
This is okay. I didn’t mind it as a latte. There is some spice and there is a weird taste at the beginning that at first I wanted to call tobacco, but after sipping a bit it was probably nut? I do not get pumpkin out of the blend, but I know that is a really hard flavor to get right. This is okay. I think I will drink up the rest of the ounce I bought, but I would not buy this again.
The dry leaf smells a lot like butter pecan flavoured coffee which reminds me a little of this wonderful woman I worked with when I was in university. She often brought me food and coffee when I worked with her. She kind of mothered me but her kindness was always appreciated.
The tea smells of coffee, honey and roasted pistachio. There is unfortunately something a little soapy in the scent as well.
The tea has a biscuit like note, with a coffee note, a good dose of honey and a nutty note. The base tea is bready and flowery,with a touch of fruit. It brews to a rich red orange. The flavour is pleasant but the floral note seems out of place. As it cools the floral note dissipates and the base becomes much more fruity with red berry notes. I much prefer this to the floral notes when hot.
This is a nice tea for those who miss flavoured coffee or who like a mix of bitterness balanced by sweetness in their dessert teas.
Thanks JustJames for the opportunity to try another tea guys tea. It suits a certain craving of mine.
Another from the reddit travelling tea box
I got 72 hours with this teabox, so I’m chugging what I can. This one is quite nice – pumpkiny smooth, spice, sweet, nutty and creamy. Apparently there is candied peanuts in this so the flavor is very unique to a pumpkin spice tea. The only thing I don’t like is there is a stevia sweet aftertaste, but probably because I don’t like stevia. I am also at the bottom of a sample pack, and from my experience on stevia’d teas that weird sweetness seems to be stronger at the package crumbs. The rooibos is fine in this and the blend isn’t watery.
Thanks to the lovely Ost for sending this my way. I was painfully curious.
It smells freaking amazing in the bag! Not a big fan of rooibos, however, so I went in with some trepidation. I used 1.5tsp for 10oz of water and steeped it for a good 9 minutes. It tastes like carrot, cinnamon, and some nonspecific pastry item. No cream cheese icing that I can tell, though it is awfully sweet. Not bad. It’s close! Unfortunately it left a medicinal rooibos taste in my mouth afterwards and that is a thing I can’t stand. I might keep the rest of it around as a before-bed dessert tea, but I won’t be getting any more. Maybe I’ll try it with milk and sugar next time, see if that helps!
Flavors: Carrot, Cinnamon, Medicinal, Rooibos, Spices
