huh…3100 tasting notes, now isn’t that a little scary! 1333 teas rated heh

Shmiracles

holy crap! 1333 is so exciting! when did you join steepster? just curious :)

Sil

uh..July 2012 so about a year and a half

OMGsrsly

When you say ‘TRY ALL THE TEAS!’ you really mean it. O.o

Sil

I always say what I mean lol why do you think I also keep drinking earl greys lol

tigress_al

Whoa, I thought my 600 was lots! You go!!

Sil

don’t know your 600! that’s awesome! i drink a LOT of tea..and this is my version of a mini blog without having to actually blog lol

OMGsrsly

Are you going to try that one I sent you? :D

Sil

It’s on deck for this weekend during operation “figure out how my cupboard exploded when it’s not half the size it was” I have 23 teas to sipdown minimum before the end of the month

Shmiracles

July 2012, huh. i joined in April 2012 and i’m not even half way to your numbers. i’m such a SLACKER! i better start the swaps back up! :)

Cavocorax

1333 teas tasted? That’s amazing! :D
And I’ll try and come over in the next week and clean up your cupboard. Y’know. Just helping out. :P

Sil

I have an entire box and a half of “swap teas” as well for you to root through…they’re not in my cupboard….if I haven’t swapped them. Away by July, to the garbage they go!

Fjellrev

Sil, you’re a tea-drinking machine.

Amariel

This is good stuff. I have a little Divine Temptation left, but I definitely could use more of both.

I really shouldn’t have since it’s midnight, but I’m getting sick of writing this paper and felt that I needed a little boost even though I should go to bed and try to get up earlier tomorrow. I made this with some milk and a hefty helping of Bailey’s Irish Cream. It’s necessary. Oh, believe me, it is.

I think I prefer Bailey’s with homemade cocoa (Fry’s cocoa with milk and sugar) but it pairs nicely with the hazelnutty/coffee notes in this tea. I also way overleafed. I was staring down into my measuring cup like a zombie, mindlessly pouring the leaf directly from the pouch, and twice the recommended amount ended up in there. So it’s a strong cup too.

Hot diggity, the holidays can’t come soon enough.

OMGsrsly

I didn’t realize what time it was. And I just had another mug of black tea. Oops?

Fjellrev

I honestly think it doesn’t affect my body anymore haha. Anxiety = problems falling asleep regardless of caffeine consumption anyway. Do you think you’ll have a difficult time falling asleep now?

OMGsrsly

Maybe. At least my mind isn’t racing and my pulse is nice and steady. :) That bodes well for sleeping. I can always take some melatonin, too. I haven’t been using it much recently so my sensitivity to it has increased again.

Fjellrev

Nice, that never really worked for me. Same as 5-HTP, unfortunately. But I’m glad to hear that your midnight indulgence shouldn’t affect you!

OMGsrsly

I take magnesium, 5-HTP (when I can afford it!), Sam-E (when I can afford it), omega 3’s, B12, etc, etc. The magnesium definitely helps in the evening, but I’m not sure about the rest. :)

Fjellrev

Hmm, thanks for the tip regarding magnesium. I’ll have to look into getting some. :)

OMGsrsly

Umm, one warning. Be careful with it as it can upset your tummy something fierce. Google it. :)

MissB

The only thing that has ever helped me with sleep is GABA. In a nutshell, a neurotransmitter that helps reduce anxiety, and as it was explained to me prior to my taking it, “Shuts down the chatter in the brain”. Zero side effects that I know of.

MissB

Oh wait.. and teas with passionflower in them have worked for me as well.

OMGsrsly

Hmm. I’ll have to check out passionflower. I can’t do gaba. :)

Fjellrev

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting about GABA. Thanks for the reminder! I refuse to resort to sleeping pills. :)

I only have one cup of this left! And that’s only if I mix it with some Divine Temptation!

Wow.

Anyways, delicious as always. Very coffee-like today. All I added was some creamer.

I think I’ll ‘have’ to pick up 50g of this one, and 100g of Divine Temptation (when I eventually head back out there), because the mix is perfect for the winter!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec
Sil

i need to try this one soon… maaaaybe tonight..

Fjellrev

You too! I’ve been ripping through mine and thought I have lost my mind. Also picked up the Chocolate Macchiato and am almost finished it too despite not even writing a note for it yet. Ahhh, she does the creamy ones so well!

Sil

good to know!

OMGsrsly

I didn’t get the macchiato one due to the COFFEE flavour. This one is just burnt sugar enough that I don’t feel the tea is trying too hard to fake it. :) Definitely worth the $4 or whatever it is.

Sil

yeah i suspect i’ll want to pick up a few more teas from bayswater once i get my cupboard a little more in control…

OMGsrsly

LOL. I’m hovering at 209. As I drink one tea, I find another that isn’t in my steepster cupboard! NOOO!

Sil

haha i have less teas than you! woot woot! though that will last for like a day.

OMGsrsly

Just wait till my Verdant stuff comes in. ACK!

Sil

um yeah…then you’ll totally be way higher than me hides the receipt for her verdant order, her tea box from terri, her swap with dexter and kaylee and the 2 orders she’s looking at now from omg…

Fjellrev

Her prices are amazing. I have Verdant coming in too. Mine just cleared customs after eight days. Thankfully I’m nowhere near either of you on the tea count haha.

Sil

incendiare. I can change that.

Why does this make me think of coffee? I keep emptying my cup before I fully review it. Good thing I stopped for the last few sips!

So I am getting a nice black base, hazelnut and vanilla, and a bit of creaminess which I assume is from the coco bean? It’s very smooth and luxurious, and only a little astringent. I really enjoy this.

I’ve really enjoyed a lot of these flavoured Bayswater teas. Sil and Kittenna – you guys better like them too because I might want to order more and want to split the shipping cost! I split your samples up, double-baggie’d them, and then wrapped them in tin foil for MAXIMUM freshness. :P Now that I’ve done this, I can fit my parts into my travel box and drink them all before I see you guys.

Sil

Haha goose.

OMGsrsly

This one makes me think of coffee too! Heather said it might be the burnt sugar smell. I really want to mix this one with some of the nougat tea tonight.

Amariel

Yeah, I get a very strong coffee vibe from it. I do think it is the burnt sugar giving a roasted/toasted smell reminiscent of coffee.

Thanks for giving me some of this tea, Cavocorax!

Both the dry and brewed tea smell ridiculously like coffee. Like, ridiculously. This tastes absolutely nothing like creme brûlée to me, but hazelnut coffee? Very much so! With a 2-minute infusion, it’s pretty smooth – just a suggestion of astringency that blooms slightly as dryness in the throat post-sip. I think this tea would be crazy delicious with milk and sugar, but for now I’ll resist…. I only say this because although flavourful, I think that eliminating the dryness would do wonders for it.

Anyhow, yum! Glad to have sampled this tea, as it’s not a flavour combo I’ve really tasted before (well, in tea at least!) :)

Picked this one up in Vancouver last week for the Vancouver Meetup before Cavocorax moves to Toronto. We spent a long time in Baywater looking at tea and sniffing, and this one was one that a lot of us liked, so we shared some.

Anyway, so my day ended up a little frustrating, and I had a bit of anxiety toward the end. I made the Gui Fei Oolong from Butiki earlier, and while it was tasty, it was not the warm hug around my heart that I needed tonight, so I brewed up a cup of this.

The first thing I pick up with the smell is almost a coffee bean smell, but if I smell deeper, it isn’t coffee bean, it’s the burnt sugar topping from creme brûlée that I am smelling. There is a sweet vanilla undernote, but it’s not an artificial vanilla…it feels warm and earthy.

I added milk and sugar to this. The sugar was fine, but I’m not sure of the milk. I was hoping it would be an enhancement to the creme part of the title, but I don’t know. I think it may have muted it too much, though I can still detect the burnt sugar notes through it.

I don’t know if I will like this one as compared to Divine Temptation, but I did have a thought to mix the two to create Hazelnut Creme Brûlée. So this is a winner from Bayswater. The only one I did not like so far was the Lemon Basil Oolong.

Cavocorax

I’m surprised they all turned out (mostly) so well! I’m really happy we went!

OMGsrsly

I’m really pleased with the teas so far too. Maybe we all just have good taste! :)

Mmm, I’m in a dessert tea mood, which is nice because I have a pile of tasties from OMGsrsly and not much to do today.

This is an interesting one. It tastes a lot like the burnt-sugar caramelized crust of the creme brulee but not a lot like the cream custard itself. I think the burnt-ness of it is what evokes coffee a bit. It’s a bit too burny for me overall, but I am still enjoying this pot it this afternoon. Interested to see how it will play out when I mix with Divine Temptation.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
OMGsrsly

:) I prefer this one mixed. Unless I make this as a latte.

I picked this tea up over a year ago when I lived in Vancouver. I loved this tea shop. So much. I wish I could still go there!
Dry: Classic black tea with pieces of nut? It smells like creme brulee! Milky carmel deliciousness. It fits its name to a T (all pun intended)
Liquor: Dark and delicious. No if ands or buts this is amazing. Its naturally sweet and a toasted carmel flavour comes out. Creamy on the tongue a bit when it cools.. slight refreshing astringency. Very subtle though.

I want more!

Sample sipdown from OMGsrsly, my second creme brûlée tea of the night.

It’s a pretty potent tea. I definitely get that slightly bitter burnt caramel note.

It’s a very heady dessert tea that I wouldn’t mind having a small quantity of, but nothing I would want to drink regularly. I’d probably add a bit to my cart if I was ever going to place an order but I wouldn’t place an order just for this.

Thanks for sharing, OMGsrsly!

Sil

this + cream from teaG or divine temptation smooths the burnt note out and makes it delicious!

JustJames

drat…. might have to explore this company…….

Sil

james – they have some really nice things and some icky things.

Amariel

I do love this and divine temptation.

Sipdown!! (182)

Thank you Fjellrev for sharing this amazing tea! When I was brewing up The Morning Star, I didn’t know what to expect so I wanted another tea that I knew I would enjoy and this popped into my mind. I am sad to see it go as this is one I would most definitely stock (if I lived somewhere I could buy Bayswater Teas that is). It has an almost coffee-like quality at first but as I continue to sip, I realize it is not coffee but rather a caramelized sugar flavor that is bordering on a little too well-down giving it a nice roastiness. I am definitely starting to see where the name Creme Brulee comes from now and I am really loving it. Too bad it is gone :(

OMGsrsly

Did you get any Divine Temptation?

Fjellrev

She sure did, and I did mention mixing them. :D

VariaTEA

Yes I got some of that as well because Fjellrev is awesome! However, I didn’t get a chance to mix them because I finished the Creme Brulee too quickly on its own :(.

Fjellrev

Aww, I can always send more of both next time I send you stuff.

VariaTEA

Haha. I might have gotten a bit excited about this one :P. Btw, have you tried Sweet Seduction by RiverTea? It is also a nougat tea (like Divine Temptation) but with a green base. It was really good.

Fjellrev

I haven’t tried that yet but was considering ordering that when I eventually make an order with them. The first thing that came to mind when I saw it was this tea.

OMGsrsly

Fjellrev, I have loads and I’m closer than you are. :) I could send some in the parcel I’m putting together!

OMGsrsly

Oh, and Bayswater does Divine Temptation with a green base as well. And I think also a bai mu dan white. Maybe even rooibos. It’s a best seller!

VariaTEA

Haha. OMGsrsly, we have Sweet Temptation, so I don’t think we should jump on any rooibos versions of Divine Temptation anytime soon:P.

OMGsrsly

Oh right. :D Sorry, I get excited about tea and stuff… :)

Amariel

I need more of this one, seriously. And DT.
