Weird. I’ve reviewed this and rated it but steepster said I didn’t.
Anyways…

Delicious as well when iced with a tea bag :)
I wanted something cold and sweet that tasted like cake, and this is it. Vanilla cake mix with sprinkles almost. And macadamia nuts.
Mmm MM MM

I still haven’t tried this iced! You’re really selling this tea that way. :)

I love this tea.
So many cocoa notes and good malty comfort.
It reminds me of the last week my love was here before he deployed. He made me this tea every morning with breakfast. First time in a long time that I’d eaten breakfast, or made tea in the morning. I can’t function in the morning you see. Definitely a night owl!
Regardless, after a 12 hour shift, this is a lovely tea with good memories attached.

I’ve been cold brewing this at work.
It’s sooo delicious, especially with lemon. The lemon makes the chocolate malt notes really pop. I highly recommend trying it with lemon!

I love this tea. Hot or cold.
Yummy cinnamon with orange and clove gets me every time. And the lovely sparkles make me smile as I drink it.
. I need more of this

Such a delicious tea. Glad I decided to break into this one.

It tastes like Laoshan Black, but with a sweeter, more caramel edge. I would say this is closer to a caramel brownie than LB is…. But also with a side of vanilla ice cream. Or maybe is it caramel ice cream with pineapple? It almost reminds me of buckwheat too… one of my favourites for bread. Lovely tea

I had a cup of this today at work. It’s not a tea I crave often, but it was a comforting tea so I went for it today.

My wonderful boyfriend was deployed to Afghanistan yesterday. I’m a sad panda and the tea was a nice choice for a yummy comforting brew with creamy vanilla tones and softer bergamot. I do enjoy this earl… but I would give up all my tea just to guarantee his safe return. sigh
I need more comfort teas. Suggestions open.

I’m hoping your boyfriend stays safe too! Earl Grey Creams are my most comforting teas, so I’m not sure what else to suggest. Hazelnut is comforting to me as well, but I guess all teas are comforting to me.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Vanilla teas are most comforting to me. Hope your bf is well.

I iced a big bodum of this today as well. For some reason, I never seem to get the caramel flavours of this. I do always get a strong lemony bergamot with stone fruits and some vanilla wafers in the background. I like it, but I do find the bergamot to be a little overpowering sometimes. Florence is more delicious in my opinion, though this is still a delight to drink (especially as a base for an iced matcha shake with almond milk)

I made a massive bodum of this for icing. The first thing that it reminded me of was long life oolong by DT. I think I like this one better, as I can taste the green and black tea, sans the floral that I get with the LLO due to the oolong base.
Overall it’s refreshing. Peachy keen and does not need sweetening for iced which I really like. I don’t think I’ll restock this, but I am enjoying it as a nice summer drink

My 200th note! Woooooooo!!

I’ve been slowing down my tea drinking lately due to my busy schedule! Sadface. I have been sharing what tea I have been drinking with my boyfriend, who appears to be enjoying the tea adventures.
I decided to make this one as I knew it was delicious… absolutely delicious.. and he really liked the Laoshan black, which has a somewhat similar flavour profile (though still very different).
Success! Another tea he loves.
Delicious chocolatey malt with big red robe mineral notes that I adore. What a lovely tea.

Now I’m off to Thailand for 3 weeks! I’M SO EXCITED

Nicole

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
