Sipdown (193/195)!

So, I made the last of this in my timolino and drank it on the walk home. It started snowing! Like, fairly heavily. Boo! Fingers crossed it all melts by tomorrow. DEATH TO ALL THE SNOW.

Anyway; this was nice! It’s sweet and maybe a little more “chocolate” flavoured than the previous cup was – but mostly it’s the cloves I’m really ‘digging’ right now. Concluding thoughts: this will be a little missed, but I’m sure it’ll be short lived/soon forgotten – it was a good, solid gingerless chai and I loved that, but I don’t think it was special enough/unique enough to be remembered over the other chais I keep stocked.

Thanks VariaTEA for the Transylvanian Transsiberian Chai!

this one is awesome.

VariaTEA

It is definitely one of the few chais I like but I don’t think it is one I will keep stocked either after I finish what I have. I think my future Camellia Sinensis orders will consist of Ombrelle de Papier and copious amounts of Des Roses et Des Bonbons.

OMGsrsly

Ombrelle de Papier was SO GOOD.

VariaTEA

It is one of my favorite white teas for sure. Weirdly enough, aside from mulberry white teas, all the whites I really enjoy are from local companies in Mtl.

VariaTEA

JustJames, I can probably send you a sample as well :). By the way, I think a postal worker has run off with the package you sent me since it still has not arrived :P.

JustJames

i know! what a dirty trick…. am i rebuilding your parcel and sending it off now?

VariaTEA

Haha thank you for the offer but you don’t have to do that. I have plenty of tea here already :)

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.
