Made this one when I got home tonight!

On the sample package it says “Sil” – but I didn’t get it directly from her. I wish I could remember who the “go between” was so I could thank them too…

I thought this was really good! The black base was delightful for a Ceylon which I’m typically impartial to, at best and the vanilla and hazelenut flavours were very strong and comforting. It seemed like a nice peaceful nighttime tea and one to enjoy slowly and cradle close, though I imagine it’d give the same impressed as a gentler black tea to have in the morning. I also vaguely got light cocoa notes. Next time I intend to try it with a little milk added in!

So thank you Sil and whoever got this from her and passed it to me!

Flavors: Cocoa, Nuts, Vanilla

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
