2716 tasting notes

“Why hello again, Sexy”. That’s what I said to this blend upon opening up the package of it and making a piping hot cup of it. As it was brewing, the hello developed a bit more into a “Get in my mouth now, bitch!”.

I was lucky enough to receive about 25g of this from both VariaTEA (for my birthday) and Scribbles (as an add in to the package she sent me). That makes me a very happy tea drinker; I’ve just fallen so in love with this one! This cup in particular is from Scribbles’ package. Since it was the older of the two I figured I’d use that one up first.

This tea is just amazing though. It is so creamy with plump notes of vanilla, and has such a thick mouthfeel and rich caramel taste that I cannot get enough of it. Once I’ve emptied the DT tin currently filled with Birthday Cake this is what’ll be going in its place! It’s for sure going to be a nightime staple for me – and I think it’s not unjustified for me to say that it’s my favourite rooibos blend from DT overall (I think Gingerbread would maybe be second? And then Jessie’s Tea). It deserves a much higher rating here on Steepster…

GET IN MY DROOLY MOUTH!

Hello;

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

You know you’ve got it bad when you get your hobby tattooed to your arm.

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 straight 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, sometimes mango or peach

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, and anything with Goji berries

I also write reviews for SororiTea Sisters! Typically what I post there is more edited, focused and expanded reviews of what I’m posting here. Unless I was sent a tea specifically to review for the blog, I will post here first.

If the tea was sent to me specifically to review there then the full review will only be posted there, and my Steepster review will just contain a snippet of the review and a link to the full review on the SS site.
