Thank you MissB for the chance to try this tea. It is certainly very interesting. It tends to be different with each cup though. Sometimes it is juicy blueberry, some sips are tart, others are incredibly sweet. It is all pretty tasty though.

Both Dexter3657 and MissB were so generous and sent this my way. This is a very warming cup with some nice spice but I think it misses the mark when it comes to the name. I don’t think I will be ordering any of this in the future but it was nice while it lasted. Thank you guys!

I decided to finish what was left of this tonight. I might grab more in the future as it is definitely a delicious blend however I have a lot of the chiffons left and I think I would need to get through those before I can justify buying some of this. Thank you MissB for sending me this to try. It is lemony and creamy and just a very pleasant cup.

On another note, why is “cannabis”, “green bell peppers”, “asparagus”, etc. flavor options but there is no “lemon”, “mint”, etc.? I find this very, very strange.

With those options, one might as well start reviewing frozen stir-fries and special brownies.

VariaTEA

Haha. i just don’t understand why such common flavors are not available but those made it on the list. Apple is another missing one.

Fjellrev

Me neither. Someone was clearly out to lunch.

OMGsrsly

Must have been a very interesting salad… ;)

Kamyria

There is no “pineapple” or “mango” either… Many flavours common to tea are missing… lol so strange.. but I found “fish broth” :o

Starfevre

roasted chicken is in there

VariaTEA

Who came up with this list?!?

OMGsrsly

Maybe they were just really very hungry… :)

mewakeling

I was just looking for mint last night and thought precisely that. Cannabis but no mint?

Courtney

My favourite is “autumn leaf pile”!

Isaila

But… don’t you guys have cannabis fish broth asparagus tea? With some iodine and yam flavouring?

My friends asked for some after dinner tea and you know you have too much when you get stressed because there are too many choices to just pick one. So I asked what they felt like and as a joke one friend said “peanut butter”. Of course when I actually pulled a peanut butter tea out, they got excited.

I brewed up a pot and though some were really impressed, others, including myself, were not as in love. There is a slight tang which might be the cheesecake and a saltiness that could represent the peanut butter but had I not been told the name, I would never guess those flavors. At least the pot used a significant amount and brought this close to a Sipdown.

Thank you MissB! I finally got to try this hot but tbh it was actually much fudgier once it cooled. The cinnamon is more prominent in this cup it is still reminiscent of a brownie. I am not sure if I would get more of this but I am glad I got try it.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I feel the exact same way about this tea. Mind you, I think it the first genuinely fudge-y tea I’ve found.

VariaTEA

When I had the first cup cold, it was very thick and fugdey. It lost some of that when it was hot.

I will miss your caramel smell but your taste leaves something to be desired. I am ever so thankful that I got to try you though so thank you Dexter3657 for making it happen.

Bio

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
