I gota sample of this when I was at Bellocq because I was unsure about it since it was based on a darjeeling. I’m glad I did because it’s quite delicious! The coppery bright taste of the darjeeling is tempered by the strength of the spices and the sweetness of the rose. The rose is definitely a hey lement to this blend. Without it the tea would have seemed muddy and dark. The vanilla in this is fantastic! I’m trying to pick out the spicesand I’m getting cinnamon, cardamon, and saffron? I could be wrong about the saffron.

This is definitely a warmth-bringing, cheerful tea! I might just grab up a little more for. Around the holidays.

It’s on my list of favorites. I already need more.

I’ve been really enjoying my Bellocq teas.

They were at the American Made event last night at Grand Central. I stopped by hoping to save a trip to Greenpoint in the future but they were mobbed and only traveled with a bit of their inventory. I’ll head back at any time :)

you guys are making me want to try some of these with your reviews!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

It’s worth it, Sil!

I’ll have to look them up in a few weeks. Do they have an online store that’s decent? I’m so lazy lol

This company is on my list to check out too. Their blends look so interesting, but they’re a bit on the pricey side?

Sil

Looks like it. And laaaaarge sizes. Holy 3oz.

OMGsrsly

I feel like I probably shouldn’t do this, but I’ll share stuff if you’re doing a bulk buy, Sil. Not too picky although I’d like to avoid mint.

Ifyou guys want I can send each of you single or two cup samples of the teas I have from them. Just message your addresses. I don’t mind shipping to Canada.

I can’t say no..

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
