“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 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.
