Tea Desire Chai mix with Tea Desire Chocolate Christmas Loops black tea…

I added extra star anise, cloves, candied ginger, cinnamon sticks, cardamon, and peppercorns.
Made with almond milk (unsweetened) and 1 tsp of honey.

The result is a delicious, sweet cinnamon/clove/cardamon/chocolate brew that’s perfect for the morning!

What the heck?
I definitely wrote a note for this. But where did it go?!
This has been a love of mine since discovering DT… why? Here are my reasons:
1. I love popcorn
2. I love caramel
3. I love caramel popcorn
4. I love caramel apples
This tea features all of these delightful flavours and more! .. such as maple syrup. Let’s not get sidetracked by that though.
I iced mine, added a bit of raw sugar and some salt. This beats any juice I’ve ever had, and hence why I love tea.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I do enjoy this one… but It’s not my favourite varietal of black tea that’s for sure.
I crave maltiness in my black teas, and this is not strong in the malt factor.
I get notes of raisins, orange and almost a candied ginger note?
A sweetness develops on the second cup for me (gongfu style with ~86˚C, 30s).. it’s nice and accompanied by a slight drying at the back of the throat.

I like it.. I don’t love it.
Thank you Angel for the sample.

First tea of my birthday… even though I haven’t slept yet so it’s not officially the day of my birthday.
This was one of the first DT’s I fell in love with. It’s been a while since I’ve had it, but my golly it’s so so so good. All sweet and vanilla cake like. Scrumptious.

Now hopefully this tea knocks me out so I can get to the laboratory early tomorrow…. hmmph.. I’m no early bird thats for darn sure.

I’ve been icing this.
SO GOOD. Holy bananas good. Sweet nectar with yummy sweet pea, honeysuckle and green bean flavours. Layers of thick honey too.
Crazy delicious

I’ve been trying to give this tea the benefit of the doubt, but it keeps leaving me with something to be desired.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it… it’s just.. missing a key element. Not that the tea is bad, maybe it’s just not my preferred oolong. It’s my first shui xian. I do love Wuyi oolongs though.
I’m on my 3rd steep from leaves I used last night. I am finding the waffle cone flavours.. and almost a vanilla custard oddly enough.
Still not absolutely blown away though.. I don’t know why.

(oh yeah.. Steeping parameters: 10s, 206˚F, ~5g, 5oz… increase time 1s each sequential steep.)

Holy Hannah This Stuff IS GREAT!
Smelling the leaves is heavenly! Definite chocolaty notes with malt and buckwheat.. I was so excited to try this tea.
I rinsed/steeped at 205˚F for 4 seconds and 2 ‘perfect teaspoonfuls.’ Delightful. Chocolaty malt and definite buckwheat.. all tied together with a dark honey of sorts. mmmm
Second steep was 8s. The buckwheat and malt notes are sticking around.. the chocolate has gone, but now there’s a thickness thats developing.. melting like butter almost. I would say this steep was half as sweet as the first.

Loving this Yu Lu Yan Cha!

Oh my gosh..
I made an iced version of this by using two small handfuls (~10g) of leaf per 4oz of filtered water. Put this in the fridge overnight and the color is a beautiful light and bright greeny yellow.
It tastes so magnificent too! Nicely sweet with a green bean like flavour, except delicate veggie flavour.. perhaps it’s delicate because it’s been mellowed by the lovely sweetness on my tongue. The lingering flavour is like a baked banana caramel dessert with vanilla bean ice cream and a graham cracker somewhere in the mix at the end.

I have a feeling I’ll be drinking LOTS of this. It’s still cold outside and I prefer black teas for comfort during the cold days… but this a nice drink for in-between tea sessions is perfect! (And I’m still consuming tea! . )

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.
