tfw you have to add a new tea that you clearly forgot to add when you first tried the sample months ago
and you remember really enjoying it months ago
(except you can’t remember how you brewed it then)
and this time when you use the last of your sample in a cold brew you probably brewed it too long or it just didn’t really suit cold brewing because it’s not super awesome
but you’re all out of sample so you can’t keep playing with it
dangit this wasn’t even a sipdown
Oh gosh, it’s beautiful as a cold brew, too.
This time I was reminded of my recent overbrewed mistake with white tea and so these leaves only got soaked for 4-5 hours. The drink came out beautifully blushed pink and cloudy, with a strong scent of berries, the taste echoing the scent and adding coconut and chocolate.
This is so, so good.
(Considering the raspberry and coconut laden through this, I clearly have a Type. Looking at you, Fantasy Island.)
Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut, Raspberry
Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh HAPPY. YUM.
Yes, this is a tea I’m losing my vocabulary over.
I compared my sample of this with Rabbit Hole’s Turkish Delight tonight and this one came out on top SO HARD. It’s light and delicious and so good and it doesn’t need anything else at all. This one, this one I’m gonna restock.
Let’s get these samples down! Tonight I compared this one and Rabbit Hole’s White Delight. Both lovely, my favourite way to serve them is at crazy opposite ends of the scale. This one definitely tastes best for me with sugar and cream. A crazy good dessert tea. It’s a bit too bitter for me on its own. Even with just cream it’s good, but sugar too takes it to another level.
Aaaaand I couldn’t help but finish off the last of this tonight. About half a tsp sugar added to this made it ridiculously sweet; I wish I’d tried it before adding the sugar! But this was definitely a nice brew and I’m glad I got the sample, even gladder I read the ingredients the other day and realised I wanted to drink this ASAP.
Forgot that I already tried cold brewing this sample and promptly cold brewed it again. Luckily I have a scoop left to try hot!
This time I overbrewed and the ginger is a bit too prevalent (I’ve discovered there’s ginger in here. Hahaha). It’s still very nice but just remember this is one you shouldn’t overbrew! Maybe 12hrs max for cold brewing.
I’ve passed over this sample so many times because it just doesn’t LOOK like a blend I want to drink, but I’m an idiot because all the ingredients are like yeah, yeah, YEAH! I went on an iced tea bender yesterday afternoon and packed some of this in my beautiful glass tea bottle to cold brew overnight for work today. I’m so glad I did because today is stinking hot too, and this iced blend is HEAVEN. Pine, lime, coconut and a dash of black? Yes, thank you. I want to try this one with some fizz in it, and maybe a splash of booze. This is a winner!
So a couple of weeks ago at work I ended up on a computer with a huge screen right as Rabbit Hole emailed about a brand new tea and I just couldn’t resist so I bought a bunch of samples, FINALLY! And then just after they arrived I caught a cold… so I was pretty stoked to have ordered this guy. I think “cold/flu” teas are more of a placebo than anything, but I still love them, and this one was no exception to that love.
This is an absolutely dreamy blend of lavender and Oolong. Sweet, floral, creamy and just … really BEAUTIFUL.
If you’re a fan of lavender, you probably are aware that lavender is easy to overdo or under-do … but Rabbit Hole got it just right with this blend. This is lavender perfection, balanced so delightfully well with the vanilla and Oolong notes. It’s really quite heavenly.

This is one of the better Tropical teas I’ve tasted, and I’ve had quite a few. I really like the Oolong base with this one! Very interesting … very unique!
The pineapple is a sweet, juicy taste and melds beautifully with the Oolong base, the orange really brightens the cup, and the coconut marries nicely with the creamy notes of the Oolong. I really like this!

I only had a small sample pack of this tea, and the first couple of pots I brewed with it, I was not a fan, at all. It seemed too orangey. So it sat there on my shelf at work for a while unused. The other day though, I was craving oolong, and had run out of toffee apple (also by this brand), so I brewed up my last scoop and strangely, I loved it! and now I wish I had more…
I got a small sample packet of this tea this morning. This tea smells amazing! You are just hit in the face with an amazing fruity smell. But when its brewed, its a lot more subtle and you don’t really get that super fruity flavour. The fruitiness is more of an after taste. I am quite enjoying this tea, and the more I sip it, the more I like it.
Despite being in the process of narrowing my tea cupboard, I went and ordered more RHTB samples. Damn you RH peeps, your teas are just too tasty, I couldn’t stay away!
I opened this this morning when I was madly finishing making lunch to brew for travel in my Timolino. Holey moley this smells like a berry farm! No, more than that. More like the smell on your hands after spending a day in the sun picking fruit. Intense, lush and authentic. Smells just as amazing when brewing. In fact, after I’d discarded my leaves from the steeper, the other half asked if he could lick out the sink becasue it smells so good. Yes, he’s a bit odd, but THIS TEA SMELLS RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING!!!!!
And now for my morning disappointment – I uncapped my timolino just as a meeting started next to my desk (my desk sits in the middle of my workplace next to a meeting space, there’s no office for it), and someone came in from outside who was wearing strong, floral perfume. Bitchface. Seriously ruining my tea experience. But underneath, the black base is nice and hasn’t gone bitter, and the berries hit the back of my mouth. Just so disappointed my first cup of this got intereferred with. Will rate when I have a more accuracte sample.
I can’t believe I haven’t logged this tea before. I am such a slacker. I made my final pot of this tea today (sob) to christen my new teapot (yay!). I have had a rather itinerant lifestyle for the last few months and it has wreaked havoc on my ceramic with several breakages. I am trying a stainless steel pot until things settle out plus it has the biggest infusion basket I have ever seen.
So back to the tea. It has large pieces of cinnamon, whole start anise, cardamom pods, cloves and black pepper. It smells like a heavenly combination of all those spices dry. I brewed for 5 min with boiling water. The wet leaves smell similar to the dry. The tea smells similar. The tea has a very good base. I don’t really taste bubblegum but I do have a nice mix of cinnamon, anise and clove. Adding milk and honey makes it more smooth & sweet but I think it is just as good without.
