Backlog:

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!

Still loving this one. I had a glass last night after getting home and I fell asleep before finishing it! So I’m finishing it this morning after its cooled down. Still lovely and sweet. Beautiful.

And we’re at the last of my small bag of this! I hope I can finish of my timolino full so I can re-steep the fruit etc in this one before the end of the day.

Blimy, long time no see steepsterites, my apologies for being so lax! My Whole30 went well, really well (http://mymissingfactor.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/you-are-what-you-eat/), and while it didn’t prevent me from having tea, I cycled through a few favourites/compliant options. The Art of Tea and Rabbit Hole were both very helpful! And then last week I had to have another period/withdrawal bleed/drug test week (http://mymissingfactor.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/my-period-survival-kit/), and my brain wasn’t quite into reviewing on Steepster! But I’m back! Weehee! And, in exciting news, the other half is now drinking both greens and chais, neither of which he liked before. Gotta love some whole food induced taste bud realignment. Now he can help pay for even more of my addiction! I’ve also decided that I really want to do a cupboard clean out, which will involve some drinking on my part, and some shipping out to friends (of which you guys are definitely included!), so I’ll let you know when I have a list of teas together.

Anywho, back to the sipdown at hand – Ruby Zing! Still filled with hot timolinoness, but its lovely and flavourful and tart! Another beautiful offering from Rabbit Hole. Do you ladies even know what crappy tea is? Everything is awesome!

Sil

Woot! Yay for your other half finding a happy tea place :) glad to have you back!

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.

Preparation
Boiling

Backlog:

Yum! sweet, creamy chocolate with raspberry … and the white tea is creamy and slightly earthy and complements the white chocolate very well. The coconut adds more to the overall “creaminess” of the cup rather than adding a really distinct coconut flavor.

Delicate – as most white teas are. But even with it’s delicate overall quality, there is a lot of flavor to enjoy here.

A really good tea. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/03/29/organic-white-delight-from-the-rabbit-hole/

I love it when people try this one, its so unbelievably good. I’m glad you like it, and we’re getting some Rabbit Hole love out there beyond my national borders!

It’s been a while since I’ve had this hot, it got a bit of an iced run over summer. But it’s just as good hot! Sipping the last of it now. Hmmm…..

Seriously, what do they put in this? Rainbows and puppies and happiness? Its just so unbelievably awesome every time I have a cup, and can cope with a bit of a beating, like my desperately needs a good bi carb scrub Timolino, or some not quite perfect brewing temperature and timing. Stellar work, RHTB!

And a third for the white tea on rotation mix. Not literally, all in different steeps. I’m almost out of my little bag of this one, so its on the order list! Just sublime, and gets sweeter and more beautiful with every steep.

Backlog:

A very pleasant Lemon Herbal. I like the overall subdued approach to this tea. The ginger is not overdone, nor are the lemony herbs. A lovely, sweet lemony taste that reminds me vaguely of lemon curd. Not a pucker-y citrus note. The ginger has some peppery notes but again … it’s the softer side of ginger.

Comforting when served hot, and refreshing when served iced!

Ok, I’ve finally worked out how to brew this one. No more than 3 mins, and you get just a hint of tart, which is more flavour than anything, then the hit of sweetness. Just beautiful.

The other half and I both had a glass of this today. Iced of course, because who is having hot herbals in 32oC heat? Especially in my house. North facing up the river. Lotsa sun. Anywho, this lovely, naturally sweet, and so refreshing iced. My supply is from my Christmas tea bauble bag.

Azzrian, thanks for a sample of this one! I was worried I was going to burn this one, so I may have let the water cool a bit too much! I steeped for a minute thirty. I thought white teas were not my favorite (meaning: least favorite) but WOW I like this one! It has a very sweet flavor. It’s surprising! The flavor is almost like a less fruity cantaloupe. It has a very full flavor for a white tea and I didn’t even steep it that long. The second steep tastes the same. I should really stop typing that out every time, since it is usually the case for most teas, but I know others don’t steep more than once. Sometimes the second steep is BETTER. This is probably my favorite white tea, even though I might have been avoiding them in the past, so I haven’t had many of them.

My hubby almost always prefers second steeps of multiple infusion teas.

Having this iced. Gave it a good 6 mins so the flavours came through when cold. And they do, so raspberry-ee, so coconutty. And the white tea has this comforting, oddly warming sensation even when iced.

Just stunning. If you’ve never tried this, ORDER NOW! Seriously, international shipping be damned, it’s just sooo good.

Miss Starfish

This sounds SUPER delish! Might have to place an order once there’s room in the cupboard. Do you have any other favourites from them that shouldn’t be missed?

ashmanra

Rabbit Hole does flavors exceedingly well, and they don’t skimp!

Sil

doesn’t look like they DO international shipping…unless i’m blind, which IS possible.

TassieTeaGirl

I haven’t yet had anything that wasn’t of exceptional quality, so I think you’d be pretty safe just picking a few randomly and going for it. And yes. It looks like its currently in Australia only, perhaps ill have to work something out with all of you… Definitely worth it.

TassieTeaGirl

I’ve sent some sampls of this to Michelle and azzrian late last year, and I think a few others have tried their teas, so hopefully when I eventually send a pack ofpver for a few more they’ll look into North American shipping.

Sil

that would be awesome!

TassieTeaGirl

They are just that good, I can’t let them keep their awesomeness just in my country. Remind me in March, got a few things going on at the moment but should be able to do something then. And think of an awesome American company that doesn’t ship internationally so we can swap (that’s right, not entirely selfless ;) ).

Kittenna

OH man, I’ve been dying to try this one too! It was on my shopping list as of the last time you logged it. (I’m sure I could go in with Sil on a swappy thing in the future… :D)

Sil

cough Canadian company :) or an american company that at least ships to canada haha

TassieTeaGirl

Absolutely! I’ll get you guys this exceptional quality local only tea, and I’m sure you’ll reciprocate!

Sil

For sure! Saves on shipping as well :)

TassieTeaGirl

And sorry about the nationality confusion, Canada is my favourite place, I did an exchange in Ottawa at the end of my degree.

Ok, will have to send a pack to Canada for you all then!

Sil

For sure… keep an eye out on anything you’d like to try/have us order and we can coordinate in March.

The other half just made a glass of this iced, and even though he use 100oC water it still tastes fantastic. Just a wonderful tea.

Ok…so…ICED and with shorter infusion times…this isn’t too bad. It’s still really fruity and tart but the coconut helps and it just seems to make more sense iced.

BUT…now…I’m cold…lol…rating based on ICED attempt.

Thanks Liberteas
Based on her notes I decided to WAY underinfuse this one!

Between that and the coconut it saved it a bit.
I only took a few sips and it’s ok but certainly NOT my fave from them.
I’m going to ice this one instead so stay tuned for those notes soon…then I will rate it.
