Recommended steeping time: 4-6 minutes. Actual steeping time: 25 minutes.
Smells like a field of juicy, dripping blueberries (you know, after the kids have run rampant and eaten/squashed them by the handful). I thought it was a bit tart though drinking it… of course, my ridiculous oversteep is likely the cause of that.
I liked this, and really liked it after adding Truvia – the blueberries and apple really turn mouth-watering then, almost like a sweet blueberry pie, minus the crust. There’s zero to pick out that was ‘bad’, I just… wanted to like it more. Blueberry fans should definitely try this.
I love fruity herbal teas and this one offers a good variety of taste. The raspberries and blackberries add delicious subtly and it is definitely not too minty.
I got this on a tea shopping trip to Toronto in September. It was nice to visit Tealish and talk to the staff.
Have you ever really loved a tea and then just one day you could no longer even stand the smell? Well basically that is what happened to me with Forever Nuts and by extension, this tea as well. Courtney so graciously sent me a sample and since I was a huge fan of Forever Nuts, I knew I would love this too. Except one day I made myself a cup of Forever Nuts and could not even drink it. So I have been putting off trying this. However today when I smelled it, I was really intrigued and decided to brew myself a cup. Despite it being buttery and filled with wonderfully nutty flavors, I just could not drink it. I know it is a good cup of tea but it just is not for me. Thank you Courtney for sharing!
Courtney was kind enough to share this with me a couple weeks back and I had not gotten around to it yet. However, today I woke up in the mood for greens and so this made it into the gravity steeper.
After the Bella Berry, I worried this would go the way of potpourri but I was pleasantly surprised. I only brewed it for about a minute and what I ended up with was a very delicate tea with a hint of strawberry. I am not picking up any rhubarb but I am enjoying this nonetheless.
Thank you Courtney for sharing this with me :)
I’ve been quickly making my way through the 50g of this I ordered. I really have only two herbals and I’ve been trying to alternate my black teas with herbals to make it a bit easier on my stomach lately. I also find this tea comforting, and the name suits it so well.
I want to order more, but the shipping is much too expensive when the order is less than $50. Bleh.
Courtney was kind enough to share this with me so thank you Courtney! Unfortunately, this just does not do it for me. My roommate took a sip first and mentioned it tastes like potpourri and once that was put into my head it could not be undone. I didn’t taste berry but rather found this to be more on the floral side (and I am not even sure if there is florals in it??). It was pleasant enough to try but I don’t think I will be buying any of this in the future.
Almost every single tea with the word ‘love’ in it has strawberries, so when I saw that this one was free of them, I had to grab a small bag to see what I was missing. Or, I’m hoping there’s zero strawberry in here… Tealish’s ingredient lists are usually AWOL other than the describe flavorings.
Out of the bag, this smells like a juicy melange of fruit and green tea. Steeped it smells more like currants and spice. My first sips are tentative – are we sure there aren’t any strawberries in here? – and I’m having a hard time telling. There’s something making my lips and tongue tingle, however it could well be the red peppercorns I saw in the mix. It takes like currants with a bit of spice for the most part, with hints of roasty green tea in the background and the finish.
It’s nice and pleasant, and while I do enjoy it, I’m still focused on the possibility of strawberries in here. I’m off to go email Tealish and ask them.
Another Tealish tea from my swap with Courtney
This is pretty true to it’s name, it’s a nice berry black tea. There are some hints of melon in it. I think that distracts rather than accents for me, but it’s not bad.
Thanks Courtney for letting me try this.
Thanks Courtney for the sample of this tea.
This is an ok fruity green. It’s not quite strong enough for my tastes, and I’m not sure sencha is my favorite green base.
This is slightly sweet (strawberry), slightly tart (rhubarb), a little bitter green.
Thank you for the opportunity to try this Courtney – nothing really wrong with it, but also nothing really special. Just ok for me.
My cat is interfering with my drinking tea tonight.
They were doing fire alarm testing in my building today, including entering all the units to test the smoke detectors. My cat hates loud noises and doesn’t do well with strangers – this was going to be a bad day for him. I gave keys to my neighbor, and went to work – need to work if kitty wants roof over his head and food in his dish. While I understand he isn’t going to like it, I can’t really do anything about it.
I come home and he rejects food, lectures me for about 20 minutes, then plops himself down on top of me and won’t move – decided he needed to get caught up on all the sleep he missed and he was doing it using me as his pillow. I of course feel sorry for the cute little thing, and allow the clingyness. A hockey game and 3 hours later – he gets moved, and I finally get up and make more tea.
I’m telling stories rather than talk about the tea – yeah I’m avoiding commenting on it. Courtney generously sent me a sample. Thank you.
I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but here goes……. this is flat, lacking in flavor – there is nothing offensive, it’s just boring. I prefer Davids version of this.
Thanks Courtney for the opportunity to try it.
I received this in my swap package from Courtney – thank you so much!!!
I’m currently drinking my third cup of this, and I’m still not sure what to say about it. Strange little tea. The description isn’t matching my experience and that’s confusing me.
Vanilla?? hmmm nope
Almond? no don’t get that either
Hibiscus? Yep there is some of that but just a touch it’s not too tart
Orange zest? ok, there is some citrus in the back but I think there are other fruity flavors that are more predominant
Cinnamon and Clove? really – I think there is some spice but that’s not the spices I would say.
Wow, just strange. I think this is a juicy, fruity, slightly tart with a hint of spice. If I hadn’t read the description, I would have thought berry, hibiscus, lemon, pepper……..
I guess the good news is I’m still drinking it, it’s so strange that I just keep going back for more. I like it.
A very smooth and mellow green with a delicate jasmine flavour.
As advertised, this smells like a tart lemon meringue pie. Steeped it smells little, which surprised me.
Drinking it is like sipping a very, very tart lemon pudding, with the egg white meringue sneaking in at the very end and lingering a bit. It’s crazy good, and even better with a bit of sweetener to remove some of the extra tartness. Some sips I notice the meringue, and others I miss it… however I love tart lemon pudding (and have yet to make some since going grain-free) so this is a true delight. Will definitely re-order more, although I did get a 50g tin of it.
Took a nice big scoop of thisin my travwller to tutoring tonight. Perfect choice to round out the evening! Sweet, nutty, and just a little spicy. As always, I loved my cup (and the fuschia colour just makes everything better!!)
This was another sample I received from Courtney. I’m so grateful that she was nice enough to send me not one, but TWO packages of tea samples from her cupboard.
I don’t know how to describe what I was expecting from this tea, but it sure isn’t what I got! I guess I assumed it was going to be very sweet with an assortment of very strong berry flavors, which I also would have really enjoyed, but instead it had a slight berry taste and a flavor I wasn’t familiar with. At first, I thought it might be some sort of flower, so I headed over to the Tealish website to investigate. I came to find that this tea contained melon, not flowers, and I immediately realized my error. What a fantastic combination of strawberry and melon!
This is another tea I’ll have to add to my shopping list. I’m excited that Tealish is a Canadian Company and that it’s available at retailers throughout the country.
NOTE TO SELF: Try this one iced as the Tealish website suggests.
I received a sample of Toasty Almond from Courtney this past week when I found an unexpected package waiting for me in my mailbox! Prior to receiving it, I don’t think I had ever heard of Tealish, so I was really excited to try some of their teas.
This tea is nearly identical to DAVIDs’ Forever Nuts. Both had that nice pink color and the same delightful aroma, smelling of baked apples and almonds. At first sip, I found Toasty Almond to have a very strong apple taste; however, I found the almond flavor in my second sip.
Although there isn’t anything that is overly different between Toasty Almond and Forever Nuts, I still prefer Forever Nuts. I find it has a slightly smoother taste over Toasty Almond and since it’s the tea that began my addiction, it will likely be preferred over any other tea I find similar to it.
While this tea doesn’t taste very much like carrot cake, it’s not a bad tasting tea. It has some spiciness that’s not overpowering. I added some creamer and a touch of sweetener (maple syrup) and I found this to be a pleasant dessert type tea.
I tried a re-steep – didn’t work. Had to dump it. Bleh.
This again is similar to David’s Toasted Walnut, and by similar, I mean essentially the same haha. Although I believe this one is ever so slightly less expensive. The walnut, almond, and green tea is a lovely combination, especially with the added sweetness of the brittle and pineapple. This tea doesn’t need anything to sweeten it up, and it’s nice to find a green tea base with flavours that clearly shine through, but don’t completely overpower the tea.
Toasted Walnut was always one I meant to go and get refilled, but never ended up doing. I’m definitely happy I ordered this one, and an added bonus the other half enjoys it too. Yes!
Okay so I sometimes get a little overexcited in my tea ordering rampages and should’ve realized this is Tealish’s version of Forever Nuts by David’s. I enjoy Forever Nuts, but it didn’t ever make my cupboard permanently.
Perhaps Toasty Almond will make the cut :)
This is a lovely herbal. The combination of baked apple, almonds, and a hint of cinnamon is quite comforting. It’s unlike many other herbals in that it feels slightly more substantial. I’m not quite sure that’s the correct way of wording it, but until my mind works out something more suitable, that’s what we’ll go with. Perhaps it’s the almonds? I will enjoy this one the rare times I’m not trying to caffeinate myself as of late, to get the least amount of sleep humanly possible.
I generally do not enjoy fruit teas with a black base. The ones I’ve tried just seem to be at odds between the fruit(s) and the base, but alas, this tea is quite tasty.
I threw this in my order just because. It had melon, which is always so tempting. The melon is right there, beneath the surface, and I’m getting a hint of strawberry. The strawberry and melon work great together. There is a hint of an artificial taste, and usually this would be a deal-breaker, it’s not overly offensive in this tea at all. I am quite happy I threw this one in on a whim. Perhaps there’s hope for black teas with fruit after all.
Not great. Not terrible. Not something I’d purchase again.
The smoky flavour is there, but I’m not getting any of the other flavours or spices from this tea. There are other smoky tea’s that I prefer. Disappointing. Ah well, onto tastier teas.
I’ve been looking over other people’s notes on this one, and I’m one of the odd ones that actually likes this tea. It’s a little nutty and lightly spiced. Even though I enjoyed my cuppa, I didn’t like it enough that I would re-purchase.
I’ll be honest, we drink this tea and Forever Nuts pretty interchangeably in my house. However, that does not change the fact that it is an amazing tea. I never get over how nice and comforting the nutty base is against the hints of apple and cinnamon. And what an easy steep! Basically toss it in and forget about it, it only gets better with time!
