I cold-brewed this tea again. This is now in my top 5 cold brew teas! So delicious, refreshing, and light. I love the slightly sweet berry taste to it. It isn’t tart either. mMmm.
1451 Tasting Notes
I finished this up this morning. Thank you darby for this swap! Good tea overall. I don’t think I would be purchasing this tea. It isn’t the kind of chocolate I am very interested in. This is delicious with milk and sugar though.
So I found a little rust in the inner edge of my electric tea kettle. I am so upset about that. What do I do about it? Should I toss it or is there a way to salvage it?
I finished this tea up. I used a pot to boil water and make this tea; however, this tea tasted strange after steeping it. This is a good tea overall though. I love the dry leaf that is furry and curly.
This is a nice, soft Keemun. It smells like the cocoa, malty scent that Keemuns possess. I brewed this for 2.5 minutes, which I think is long enough. It is a little bitter and astringent in my mouth. It was a honey brown colored brew. The taste is lighter Keemun, which is nice because sometimes Keemun can have an overbearing malty almost metallic taste in my mouth. This one doesn’t leave my mouth that way. This is a nice Keemun, but not my favorite.
This week has been busy for me but this is a backlog. I love this light tasting tea. So fruity and refreshing with no astringency.
I really love Dan Cong oolong teas. This one is no exception. I love this tea. The first steep was a bit difficult because it brewed a deep golden amber very quickly. So, it was a little bitter. The flavors weren’t that pronounced. The second steep, on the other hand, was beautiful. It was a light honey color. The leaves smelled delicious like peaches. I love the fruit and slight floral tones in this tea. The lower the temperature, the better tasting this is. It has some roasted and warm components to it. This is a darker oolong.
This is a great tea that can withstand several steeps.
I went shopping at Trader Joe’s this afternoon and stumbled upon this. Normally I would pass by the chai mixes in stores, but this one caught my eye. Perhaps its a craving. I wanted it so bad. When I got home, I heated some milk and added about 3/4 of a scoop of mix. I was in heaven. This is arguably one of the best chai latte’s I have ever had. It is sweet, and so sinfully good. MMmmm… I want more, but I am holding myself back! It isn’t too spicy. It has the perfect blend of spices – cinnamon, clove, cardamom, anise, ginger, vanilla. mmm….
This is delicious cold! I cold brewed 3 tea bags. This is so refreshing and fruity! Yummy!

I cold brewed this one and it was so disgusting. bleh. I had to throw away the whole thing :(
Backlog: I haven’t had much time to go on steepster, but I have been drinking this tea in the mornings before going to work.
I opened this package today! It smelled so good dry! Malt and cocoa are two things I love in life. The leaves were twisted and dark brown. Since I haven’t been brewing teas for long periods of time, the liquor was a bit scent-less to me. When I drank it, it tasted like good Assam. I detected maltiness, slight fruity notes, and some cocoa notes as well. It was still strong, so I added sugar and skim milk to it. Delicious and easier to drink with the additives, which I usually like to use when I’m drinking assam teas. I imagine that this would be a good base for blending teas or making chai.
This tea blend is okay. I like the banana notes, but they seem a little artificial with alcoholic type scent… like an banana-scented ester that I made in high school chemistry class! I noticed the chocolate, which helped the banana a little bit, but not enough IMO. This is good with a little milk to subdue the banana notes. Otherwise, I don’t think I will be purchasing this beverage in the future; however, it is a good beverage for bedtime just because its rooibos.
I keep telling myself I am going to make this over the stove-top, but I haven’t been able to! I have been so busy with work. Anyway, I had this before going to work yesterday. :) Delicious! I love the ginger bits in here.
So these English Tea Store chai blends are not as strong as I hope they would be, but it is good anyway! I have been brewing it Western style, so maybe thats the problem. I will use the rest of my samples for the stove. This is a decent cuppa tea to accompany breakfast. The vanilla flavor is very light, but this blend is nice and creamy.
I cold brewed this, and I think this is BEST when its cold. I could taste the raspberry and rhubarb flavors.
I wanted a hot chocolate flavor, so I went into my sample basket and reached for this one. This was a tea in the Tea Box Pass! Delicious! I couldn’t taste the chocolate as much and the spices were a little muted. But I could detect the chai flavors.
I love this tea! This time I had milk, and I drank this happily! The spices are great and authentic. I love it!

This is a new favorite for me! I love the Ceylon black tea base here. I didn’t have any milk but added some sugar to this strong chai blend. I love this! The flavors are natural.
