This poor dear was given to me as a sample in a zip lock bag. Goodness knows how old it was when I got it. I wouldn’t say it was fresh because it had very little aroma in the leaf. I steeped it and was greeted with the ghost of a chai. So faint I know that it must have been a victim of time and improper storage. Oh well.
So, I think Tealish has renamed this blend to Blueberry Bliss. Anyway, I’ll post my review here because the photo and the ingredients are the same as the tea I am drinking.
Spring has sprung in my neighbourhood, and this is one of my favourite teas to have at the beginning of the season. It tastes like bright, sweet, fresh blueberries and the hibiscus flavour isn’t too strong. I think it would also make a great cold brew as well, but I’ve been having it hot. I bought a big bag of this tea 2 weeks ago, and it’s almost gone. I will definitely be restocking this one.
Flavors: Blueberry, Sweet
The strawberries. The chocolate. It’s like chocolate covered strawberries… in a small container. It smells so good and it tastes so good. I picked this up at Chapters one day because it was on sale and I wanted to know what Tealish thought “donuts” tasted like. Well… this tea doesn’t taste like donuts… but when the flavour is strawberries and chocolate, it is impossible to feel let down. Well done Tealish. Well done.
I had entertained trying this tea before, but I wrote it off as just another generic ginger tea. But when I came across this one in my Tealish sampler, it was love at first sniff. The dry leaves remind me of Jelly Babies. (Which happen to be my favourite British sweet)
The flavour of this tea is soft and whimsical, which I’m finding is true of many Tealish teas. It’s pleasantly gingery, but without being too strong, and somewhat sweet and citrusy.
If I keep having success with Tealish teas, I’m going to have to take a trip to their store in Toronto…
(Though it does bother me when tea companies recommend people use boiling water, even on delicate green tea leaves)
Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Sweet
This is very similar to Tealish’s Lavender Mint tea that I raved about in the summer. It also reminds me of Davids’ Midsummer Nights Dream tea. Both are pretty high on my favourites list, so that’s a good thing. I’m pretty in love right now.
It differs from Lavender Mint of course in the fact that there’s no mint in this one, which makes it a much more subtle flavour. It’s also got a creamy citrusy-ness to it.
I picked this up in a sampler pack of Tealish at Indigo today, but I’m glad to see that Well.ca carries Sleepy Fairy so I can easily restock!
Flavors: Cream, Lavender, Lemon, Orange, Vanilla
the more i have this one, the more it reminds me of the ones from fauchon and DF but with a black base…or roasted oolong, i forget which this is lol i don’t think i need this in my cupboard for a while – maybe once i’ve finished the fancy french versions and i get a longing to have that taste again – then i might consider it. :)
Tea from omgsrsly this one smelled pretty strong when i opened the package but i gave it a whirls anyway. Brewed at 190 for 3 mins, this is a pretty decent cup. it reminds me a little bit of DF and Fauchon’s salted caramel oolongs BUT less buttery because of the roasty oolong it’s got going on. It’s a pretty good cup and if i was looking for an easier substitute or a NON green oolong, this one might do the trick for a caramel oolong in a pinch :)
sipdown! pretty proud of myself for getting this far down from my mini cupboard explosion without getting another weekend in to drink tea. Gives me hope for my tea weigh in that i’m hoping i can do this weekend -ESPECIALLY if rental dog goes home a day early! enjoyed this one from missb and omgsrsly though not enough to kee it in my cupboard. would be nice to revisit from time to time though :)
Another one from omgsrsly this one smells divine. what’s confusing to me is that this tastes like a fairly normal citrus blend, but there are peppercorns, coconut and cardamom in here…but all i’m really getting is lemon orange citrus delight. Not that i’m complaining, but it seems funny that i’m not getting some of the other flavours in here. either way, still a fun cup and tasty!
I was ready to not be impressed by this. I’m not usually a fan of twee flavours of tea, but as it turns out, there’s nothing twee about Earl Greypfruit (in spite of the name). Earl Grey already has a strong citrus flavour; grapefruit instead of bergamot is a surprisingly perfect move. This tea is clean and very fresh-tasting, not bitter at all, not from the grapefruit, or from the tea. I got really into this tea about two years ago after sniffing it at the Tealish shop on Queen West, and I figured I’d get over it after a few months. I still drink a cup of it practically every morning. It’s perfect. I love it.
I got this tea in a pyramid shaped tea bag with whole leaf tea inside. Just looking at the tea bag it looked like a premium tea. There were so many leaves in the bag that when I steeped the tea expanded so much that the pyramid was bulging .
The tea tasted very good but they could have used a bigger pyramid for the tea.
I have it on good authority that this is the source for, um, another tea with the exact same ingredients over at DAVIDs. Shh. It’s still yummy, and I still love it.
Found this at Chapters of all places, and immediately grabbed it. Tealish has been hit or miss for me – I loved Lemon Meringue so much, I grabbed almost a pound of it, but their macaron fell flat – so this was a risky choice. Well, for a few bucks.
I saw the ingredient list and say – hey, wait a minute. I know another tea with exactly the same stuffola. So I ask… and yes… same tea. Shh. Really.
What about the tea? It’s amazing oversteeped/overnight/cold brewed, and reminds me of a cinnamon bun every time I have it hot. Ultimate indulgence.
Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Sweet, Toasty
being sick today means drinking weird teas, getting to weigh my cupboard and making a plan for 2016. January = get to 120 teas and 7025g; zero purchases (though that won’t likely happen since the tea festival is jan 31)
I don’t think i’ll pick up more of this later – it’s not bad but it also doesn’t call to me like other herbals. I’ll enjoy finishing it up but then i’ll be good.
