drank Tricky Treats Black Tea by SBS Teas
122 tasting notes

‘Tricky Treats’ is a Halloween limited edition from SBS Teas. I don’t believe it was available this year, or if it was it came and went so quickly that it’s no longer on the website! That’s rather too bad, as it makes it hard to provide information about the tea, but I’ll try my best.

So in my bag of this blend I can see black tea, flowers (chamomile would be my best guess?) , little chocolate candies, cloves, cinnamon, and candy sprinkles. There’s also random chopped up bits of this and that, but I don’t know them by sight.

This is a sweet tea. It reminds me a little bit of a mild cinnamon candy. There’s the familiar cinnamon tingle, but the blend is more complex, with a rich ‘mulled spice’ flavor that is sweetened with the sugary taste of the multicolored sprinkles.

Side note: I’ve never seen sprinkles in a tea before. First time for everything!

Honestly, I think this blend really captures Halloween. It’s an adult flavor with warm spiciness and just a hint of trick-or-treaters’ candy. Quite yummy.

I’m a dork and I found the website with the information on this tea and updated the information. It sounded so neat!

Awesome :D That’s so cool – how’d you find it? I have a mighty heap of other teas from this company that I need to find better descriptions for!

Carolyn

Very clever. She used the Wayback Machine to find the descriptions. I hadn’t thought of doing that. Here’s the URL for future waybacking: http://www.archive.org/index.php

Yay sprinkles in tea! That’s one reason I like Adagio’s Birthday blend so much. It has sprinkles!

Yep, the Wayback Machine is extremely useful. :-)
