drank Sweet Temptation by Tsaa
1258 tasting notes

PUDDING!! this tea… it’s heaven. Heaven in a cup. I feel as if I just enhaled a bucket full of mouth watering vanilla pudding! and a fraction of the calories. yeah baby!
Now, I’m not normally a fan of vanilla. In most cases, it’s enough to turn me off a tea! but for whatever reason… in this case, it is amazing. ahhhhhmazing!! The nougat must be laced with a slice of heaven. I tell ya…
Oh and it tastes creamy, oh so very creamy and sweet! without adding anything at all! Nope, I took this one straight up, and it’s still getting this rating from me. My first 100 folks! in 500+ reviews, this is my first perfect score. THAT is how much I love this blend.
This was my to go cup after my meet n swap, but the next time I swing by this shop, I am SO getting a tin. Oh yes, I need five tins! twenty!!!
The other thing that impresses me here is that I was able to leave my bag in and it never got sour or bitter. The guy at the shop mentioned that to me, and at first I was skeptical, but now… well I am a believer!!
Tsaa, how were you around for almost 2 years and I’m just finding you now!?

I really must get some of this tea. I’m going to start a tea mafia. I’ll launder enough tea to get this one. You in with me?

Indigobloom

Dylan: I know, I saw!! :(
but you email them maybe they can help?
Missy: LOL yes, I am IN!! we should get a code word :P

Cheryl

It’s funny how reviews like this will send us all on a google search (me included). EnablersRUs. Lucky for my budget, rooibos and are aren’t besties. Will await everyone else’s reviews : )

Just spoke to them, and they didn;t know the shipping link wasn`t working, so they`re going to update it. When I spoke to the guy on the phone, he said he thought there was a promo for Canadian customers to have free shipping over $50. I asked him what about US customers but he thought they would have to pay regular shipping fees. He really wasn`t too sure what was going on. He suggested checking out their twitter but I told him it hasn`t been updated since December 26 2011 ;) I didn`t see anything on FB either. I told him to check out Steepster and he said he knew about it ;)

So are you saying this is going to be hard to get? Maybe we need to do a bulk buy and then divi it up amongst ourselves?

Infusin_Susan

I think I need this too. Anyone wants to do a bulk buy, drop me a line — I’ll contribute!

Indigobloom

oh wow, this is awesome to come home to!!
So I think we are doing a bulk order? I’m fine with organizing it, though I won’t have much time till after my exam on May 5th.
maybe we should start a discussion in the forum before this gets too complicated lol

Azzrian

That is a good idea!

I must admit, I tried a bit of this tea from Indigobloom ‘s cup and although it was good, I didn’t think it was amazing. BUT it did smell delicious, and I was a) overheating and stressed, b) not in a rooibos mood, and c) I tried it before it had probably even steeped for three minutes. Which admittedly is rather short for a rooibos in the first place!

(Sooooooo that being said, if you pick some up Indigobloom , I’ve love if you hung onto a sample size for me to try out myself :D)

Daniel Scott

Wow, okay, I tried getting the Shipping Information page to come up by typing “shipping_information” at the end of the URL, since all of their pages seem to be easily named like that. It sent me back to the home page! I tried a few other variations too, like just “shipping,” and “shipping_info” and got the same thing. Is that ever buggered!

Indigobloom

Kristaleyn: but of course!! you’ll be getting a sample to be sure :P
Daniel: They are a startup… I’m willing to forgive them for now! but if they don’t shape up… I will be sad!
Azzrian: :)

Profile

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
