This tea is on my: I will have to take a sample home and try again" list. I tried a small sample in store… He claimed it tasted not like tetley, but more like red rose (ouch) and I kinda agree. For all the hype this one fell incredibly flat for me! :(

Cattibrie

Wow. That is bad. I would definately get a small amount to take home and make yourself. I prefer it with some brown sugar and a little milk. But this is my new favourite tea and I hate red rose.

YellowBoxFish

I agree with Cattibrie. I love this tea with a splash of soya or almond milk. It is beyond fantastic, and has been coming back every fall for the last 3 fall seasons

I don’t know why the picture did not work.

This tea is defiantly better as a lemonade. Thank being said I don’t think this is a tea I would purchase again, it is rather acidic if I have had a strong black tea or coffee before this one.

But… the kids at work love it!

I just saw someone else write about how they were unable to make Steepster accept their picture. There must have gone something loose somewhere in the site machinery.

Mmmmm.

This is roasted so well, it tastes like coffee but without that terrible acid reflux, AND there is a distinct chocolate scent/flavour that gives this the potential for a yummy chocolate latte!!

There is a reason hibiscus is the first ingredient… BLECK! I wish I had some lemonade or fresh lemons, because that would fix this tea right up!

Undecided..?

It smells so deliciously of caramel I was a little un-nerved that once iced all I could taste rooibos, although there is a distinct finish of caramel with each sip. I think this might be better hot with some steamed milk.

drank Raspberry by Tea Desire
232 tasting notes

Good.

This is one I might actually enjoy and it might actually encourage me to go back for more, or maybe send my mother. (I’m still reeling from the service in the store, and my dirty decorative tea tins)

First steep was intense raspberry flavour, with a buttery finish that allude to thoughts of raspberry crepes.

Second steep… I think the water may have been too hot, but there was a slight astringency that I did not appriciate and the raspberry bits started to look tired (they were a blanched white, no more pretty red)

I might take the time, when I get home tomorrow to try this one again.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Buying this tomorrow at Tea Desire!

They did not have this in stock, so upset, and they only sell the boxes of these teas, and for an exorbitant price!!

Had this again tonight at White Spot, and I am so buying this tomorrow when I go to Tea Desire!

So excited!

So let down, this tea will just have to be a special tea I have when I am out at White Spot or willing to walk to the Roost. (But I can live with that)

Profile

Bio

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
