I had a really hard time getting this to show up in the search bar tonight, for some reason. How odd…

I received a few cups worth of this from VariaTEA today – and although I have a 50g tin of it already, I’m definitely not upset with getting more. I really like this blend! In fact, since I haven’t used anything from my own tin yet I’m gonna use up what I got from VariaTEA first just to postpone cracking that one open: you know, maximize the freshness and all.

After the pretty big let down of Vanilla Comoro (I’m gonna call it silky water tea), this is MUCH better. Tonight, it’s less strawberry gummy candy and more actual strawberries with that very light touch of tartness combined with some super potent sweetness that makes you juuussstt slightly pucker up. Very yummy indeed!

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchablah, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually a little over a year ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious, serious obsession.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends.


Saskatoon, SK, Canada
