…..and that’s a wrap on these two teas. sooo good as a latte tonight!
Even with the teas I received today i’m still only at 143 :) that still buys me some time to get down a bit further in my cupboard before my butiki order arrives (15+teas!)

A blend of Creme Brulee and Divine Temptation (both black teas) from Bayswater. I drink them this way often enough, I figured I should add them as one tea!

I found this hiding in the back of the cupboard when I was organizing last night, and I’m nearly out! Good thing CrowKettle and I are planning to go to Bayswater soon! :) (Anyone have any requests?)
Anyways, it was as delicious as always. Burnt sugar, sweet nougat. These teas go together SO well.

What can I say, the two really balance each other out, especially since Divine Temptation is quite sweet on its own and Creme Brulee has a coffee bite due to the toasted hazelnuts. The two make one powerhouse of a blend.
I’m enjoying this with 2% milk today but I like it even more with half and half.
Two at once sipdown so that I can try this recommended combo! I am happy to be drinking these teas again, but sad to be sipping them down right now.
I like this blend of the two, especially since the divine temptation mellows the smokiness of the creme brûlée. However, I still love the divine temptation by itself most of all, and I may seriously have to acquire more of that tea eventually. I am a sucker for a well-done desert tea!
I know I just recently made a tasting note for this, but I feel like I needed to do another one just to jog my memory later and remind myself how much I really, really like this (memory, if you are reading this at a later date, take note!).
Each tea was really great on its own, but together they’re a total symphony in my mug…. the flavoured tea I could drink every day. :) Nutty, cookie-like, graham notes, hints of cooked caramel; I swear I can almost taste the crunchy, sugary top of some decadent dessert… It’s not sweet on its own, which I prefer in a tea….it’s just so, so perfect.
I even have a terrible headache at the moment (I don’t get headaches usually), and a period that makes me want to curl up into a ball and not unroll for three days… but, this tea is helping. It’s utter comfort!
So, I’ll go take my mug now and sit in a dark room and watch The Amazing World of Gumball with my kids….and drink this tea. :)
Sipdown, but somehow this one wasn’t added to my Steepster cupboard so my number wont actually be decreasing; which is a little bit saddening.
I just finished watching the double eviction with Tre and it was horribly predictable and anit-climactic. I hate this whole “best for the house” and “unanimous decision” way of playing Big Brother; true big brother is not played that way. Big Moves are made, and contestants are not scared of making the decisions that further their game and voting for who they want out instead of who the HOH tells them to. By this late into the season there should be a major divide in the eviction votes, and that’s not happening. These players are scared, and it certainly doesn’t help that more than half the cast this year (and pretty well everyone remaining except Derrick) were totally unfamiliar with the show before being on it.
Ugh. I’m just disappointed right now. It’s sad that the highlight of the night was Christine getting booed when she was evicted because I couldn’t even enjoy that; the level to which she was booed? Pretty heartless. Not even Aaryn, from last season, received that negative response and she was practically evil.
Anyway, the tea. That’s what you all care about, right? Thanks VariaTEA for the sample. I think you got it from OMGsrsly right? I think this is her “custom blend” if I’m remembering that correctly. Honestly, I’ve never had either of these teas individually so together was an interesting experience. I only had a vague idea what flavour was coming from which tea.
First off, wow. I made this in my timolino and the mouth watering deliciousness of this one was shocking. I honestly had no expectation this one could come close to being that good. The most prominent, mouth watering notes in this were caramel, custard, vanilla, and sponge toffee – all of which were accented with lighter notes of mocha, chocolate, and perhaps some subtle nuttiness. Just because of the balance of flavours, I’m assuming I was picking up on the Creme Brulee more than the Divine Temptation?
Also, the black base here was SUPER smooth. Like, Mike Boogie/Dr. Will Kirby smooth. That’s a big brother reference; apologies to the non Big Brother watching Steepsterites who probably don’t get it; but I think it’s fairly witty if you do know what I’m talking about? They were basically one of the best alliances (arguably THE BEST) in American Big Brother history – in great deal because they had one of the smoothest/most seamless social games in BB history.
I think the reference kinda suffers if I have to explain it though. Oh well. Anyway; I’m crushed I’m out of this now that I know how good it is. Next mini-goal, I suppose, will be trying each of the teas in this individually?
I made this more than 12 hours ago in my carry mug and just remembered about it now. It is still warm so yay for efficient thermoses! I am especially happy because this is the last I have of this blend and it would have been really hard to not get to enjoy it. As it is now, I am savoring every last sip of the sweet but toasty deliciousness. I will definitely see this again because it is awesome and I will definitely miss it now that its gone. Thank you Cavocorax for sharing!! 168.
Oh no! I never tried this as a latte. Well, I guess I have to get more of it now :P
