I had this one last night, and while i was a tasty cup of tea, it was very much a cherry cup of tea. There doesn’t seem to be much banana in the bag, though i’m not sure if that’s intentional, OR if i just got a bag full of no banana. Either way i’m ok with it only because the cherry tea is nice. :) I’ll drop a few points off the rating though, for being a cup of cherry goodness versus banana and cherry.
Final Count for the past two days: 119
This morning I had coffee, but I also managed to make up a mug of this to bring with me.
So tasty. I need to grab some whiskey so I can have this as a toddy when I’m out camping. :D
Oh tea, how I miss drinking mugs and mugs and mugs of you every day. Soon I will get things together again so I can make 2-3 mugs to bring with me for the day. :)
Thank you so so much MissB this was on my wishlist and one of the last teas sent in your mystery pack that I really enjoyed. It only came to my attention and made it to my wishlist because of your reviews.
January of this year all I could think about was DAVIDsTEA and I messaged my cousin who lives in Chicago how lucky he was. He responded back “I don’t know a David in Chicago and i don’t know that I’ve had his tea!” Later in the conversation he let me know about this company my response (I looked it up) “I never heard of that place, it seems a little fancier than Davids, I bet it is good since they have stores all over the world.” He is coming to visit in October and I hope I can get him to bring me some more of this tea because it would make it extra special.
The tea: Creamy Lemon not the pucker your mouth tart that I don’t personally like. This is just a light comforting creamy tang I wound maybe find in a lemon cookie or lemon poppy seed muffins.
mmmmmmm…. so i picked this one up, because on my wishlist i had anna’s from tin roof teas but got confused and thought that it was anna’s from tea gschewoiruoewiru….
I’m super glad that i did. while the dry aroma isn’t all that fantastic, brewed – this is a really nice raspberry tea. Hot, it was delicious and as it cooled, it was still a pleasant cup of tea. I only picked up a sample of this one, but i’d consider picking up more the next time i’m in chicago again…AS LONG, as i get through some of my teas… lol
this was a sample from tea gscoiewrowieru…. and i’m largely unimpressed. there is very little that is tangerine like or yogurt like to me. I made sure to get bits of all of that in my teaspoons and i’m really just getting a vaguely citrus like green oolong. It smelled really nice, but i’m glad i just picked up the sample.
So, I was salivating over the notes for this tea, and Stephanie, awesome as she is, sent it as a bonus sample in our swap! Thanks, Stephanie!
I love caramel, and I love black tea, and I haven’t really found a caramel black tea that I love. I thought this one would be it, but unfortunately I don’t think I’m fond of the black base. I only steeped it for 3 minutes, and it’s a bit bitter. There is a touch of caramel coming through, but it’s overpowered by the base. Maybe I should have steeped it for a shorter time, but really, if it’s gonna be that finicky, I don’t want it. Alas, this one’s not for me, but I’m very grateful that I was able to try it first before buying a bunch (which I almost did!) That could have been a major bummer, from which my tea friend saved me! Yay for tea friends!
Nice mild oolong with a pleasant, floral accent. Wish the tea would live up to the aroma of the loose leaf which was full of honeyed apricot notes, but the flavor accents are much more subtle than the aroma leads you to believe. Still a very good tea, just not what I was expecting from the aroma.
This Assam is lighter than other notable teas from the region such as the Hattialli (broken) and the Mokalbari (SFTGFOP1). A lighter color than the aforementioned Assams, the beauty is in its lush reddish hues, similar to hibiscus that seem to penetrate the lovely transparent light caramel color which to me was like peering through stained glass at the slight sediment at the bottom of the cup. While the flavors are not as direct as other black teas of note, the clear fruity, nutty, caramel notes are highlighted with a heavy malt and roasted barley flavor reminiscent of a Belgian abbey dubbel beer yet holds a very mild astringency making for a perfectly balanced cup. This balance makes it a wonderful every day, or “sessionable” Assam which would also be at home at a gathering of tea enthusiasts.
Thank you Marzipan for sending a sample to me. I drank this tonight while I was making dinner: “grilled” chicken and rice pilaf with peas and carrots
This is nice. Sweet, creamy and vanilla. I already have a couple new favorite vanilla teas (Capital Tea Ltd and WP GO), but this was still good. Thanks again Marzipan.
Thanks Kimquat for the sample! Honestly, was a littttle scared of the name.
Smells like a strong citrus followed by black tea. It reminds me of an english breakfast, pekoe, or earl grey tea. The sip is strong with a bit of astringency at the end, but a buttery smoothness in the front and clean citrus taste in the middle. This almost reminds me of eating a nice slice of citrus pound cake in the morning.
Flavors: Butter, Citrus, Cookie
Got a sample of this tea in a swap from kimquat.
Not really what I expected. Most lemon teas I’ve tried are pretty strong but not sour. This one is more sour. I guess the cream and butter flavor kinda outweighs the sour lemon taste. But just not enough for me. Not my favorite lemon tea for sure!
Flavors: Butter, Cream, Lemon
had this one tonight with a little lemon, mostly because i was trying to decide if it was one that i might want to pick up while i’m in Chicago. I’ve had it a couple times now, but after every previous cup, i’ve wondered how this would do with a little honey…and tonight i remembered! :) With a little honey, this is even tastier than previous cups. As an evening herbal, i can get behind this one for sure, especially in winter for that calming hint of warmer times :)
Final Count: 99 – double digits!
So I drank a cup of this earlier and it was bitter and I hated it.
But I had one cup left so I super-steeped it and then added ice for instant ice tea, and it’s much better.
Also, I realized that Second Flush might mean darjeeling so maybe that’s why it’s a little bitter? I probably should have steeped at 95 instead of 100. Oh well! I’m happier with it then I was, which is good because I expect good things from TeaG teas!
F*ck yeah, sipdown! 193!
This tastes like it says! Cinnamon and vanilla pastry. Very vanilla pastry, with a touch of cinnamon. I can’t say how relieved I am that the “stars” portion isn’t candy sprinkles in the tea. PHEW. It’s dessert-like enough without added sugar (For me. Others may disagree!).
I quite like it, actually, although with warmer weather coming again, I don’t think I’d drink it much.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Pastries, Vanilla
i took the last of this one with me over to friends where we played a few games, hung out with the little one, had dinner and then turned in to pumpkins ‘cause we’re all getting old. so we went home. loving this, but still undecided about whether i want to restock this to use as an additive for some of my other teas…
