Mmm, I really like this one! Two days ago it was one of my last teas for the night, just as something that was really relaxing and consistently yummy.

I seem to be a touch off my “plum” flavoured things kick, but still really quite good! I guess I was a bit worried that now that I’d not drinking plum flavoured things daily anymore that I wouldn’t like this as much – happy to be proved wrong.

Haha, that’s ok. I have way too much tea right now, and still several cups worth left of this one :)

I loved this one so much I used it to make cookies. :-) The fruit flavor is impressive — I’m so often disappointe by “fruit” teas that don’t taste fruity, totally expected to be disappointed here too, and wasn’t. Great tea!

How did you use it for cookies?

Making cookies with tea? That sounds interesting! I have always wanted to bake with tea, but haven’t made the leap yet.

I made sugar cookies and it was fairly easy. I melted down some unsalted butter, opened up the tea bags, and added the tea directly to the butter. I let the tea steep in the butter while it boiled until I got a color/scent that I liked. Then I strained the butter (to get rid of the tea leaves) and added it to my dry ingredients.
The only difference between using tea-infused butter and normal butter is 1) you have to use unsalted butter and 2) you have to use a little more butter than the recipe calls for so that after infusing/straining, you end up with the right amount.

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a nearly 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.

Location

Saskatoon, SK, Canada
