This got more and more bitter the longer I let it cool on my counter. Almost undrinkable by the bottom of the cup. Bummer.

Ost sent me a sample of this, the first cup of which I burned the heck out of. I didn’t even write a note for it that time because it was so bitter that I couldn’t even drink it. I made it again today, using the last of my sample correctly, and was crossing my fingers that it wouldn’t be bitter this time. It was a success! I’m really impressed with how much I can taste the raspberry (and that it specifically tastes like raspberry…not just some generic, unidentifiable berry flavor). It’s rich and desserty and I really wish I had some vanilla almond milk for this one.

I’m really hoping Culinary Teas has an awesome Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal. I haven’t ordered from them yet because their shipping seems kind of high. But, after having this tea, seeing the other flavors they offer, and knowing they have 1 oz sample sizes, I really would like to order from them!

Flavors: Chocolate, Raspberry

I’m waiting for them to have a really good sale too. They keep having like 10-20% off discounts. But that doesn’t at all cancel out their shipping. It’s too high to place an order! ><

The Cookie Lady

I know, right? And even when they have those 20% sales, they seem to only be on a specific type of tea (like the fruit tea sale right now and the cinnamon one they had a couple of weeks ago). If I have to pay almost $9 for shipping, I’d like to at least be able to get a discount on the whole spectrum of their teas. We’ll see what happens :)

This kind of reminds me of those strawberry hard candies with the gooey center flavor wise. Sweet, artificial, but still sort of berryish. The chocolate is definitely like those Easter bunnies that say “chocolate flavored”. Again, I can get the flavor, but it’s distinctly fake. Also a touch astringent. I did get a big whole dried raspberry in my scoop though, so there is real fruit in it, and I also see hard shiny shards that look like they might be pieces of cocoa shell mixed in with the tea leaves. This isn’t terrible, in fact I probably would have adored it back when I first was getting into loose leaf, but I’ve become a bit more picky about my flavored teas.

LOL yep – as you experience more teas, your tastes will change and you will become more discerning in your preferences.
I would not have believed you, if you had told me a year ago that my favorite teas would be straight blacks. Even 5 months ago I thought I liked Yunnan blacks, as it turns out most of my favorite blacks are Fujian…. it’s just so interesting to learn and experience new teas. You just don’t need to BUY them all at once. ;))

Up until about a month or two ago, I thought I hated black tea, and the idea of getting notes of cocoa or caramel or cherry from a black tea with nothing added to it?! Preposterous! And drinking something the people affectionately call pu? Absurd! And now? I love the pure malty bready cocoa goodness of a good black tea, the wet earth (pond water)smell of puerh gets my pulse racing, and dessert flavored teas are hardly ever even on my mind. So of course I have all this tea in my cupboard that gets neglected, and. I’ve had a few entire orders of tea where by the time I got around to sampling, I wish I never bought.

Dexter

Isn’t it amazing what happens when you start exploring GOOD tea. LOVE pond water – LOVE Chinese black tea. But I still like the flavored stuff too. I haven’t totally left it behind. I’ve become more selective, more fussy, but I LOVE some of the H&S chocolate flavored blacks (Florance, Soho, etc). LOVE good, well balanced fruit tisanes. Still questing for my favorite pumpkin tea, and the list goes on.
That’s how I ended up with 300 teas in my cupboard. I like almost everything… :))

Mandy

Oh trust me I still like me some good flavored teas, I am a sweets girl wholey and fully. A good fruity or jasmine green tea are still my go to cold brew type for taking and running to class with. I good dessert tea that doesn’t taste fake is still (once I get through my teas that I still need to try) what I like to end a long night with. The only flavored H&S tea I’ve tried so far has been Vanilla Comoro, but I really like a few of Stacy’s chocolate teas (Three friends, so happy I decided to give that a shot).
Oh if you do find a favorite pumpkin tea, let me know! I’ve had a few that are pretty good chai latte style (but then again what chai isn’t good latte style), but I’d love one that tastes pumpkin without having to summer in milk for a bit first.
If my funds were more stable (might be getting a new job that makes quite a but more than my last, so fingers crossed) I’d have probably added another 25-30 teas easy to my cupboard during July. Knowing that if I sacrum to the tea desire I wouldn’t be able to pay my electric is a pretty decent tea control mechanism, haha.

Succumb* not sacrum

You need to enjoy the tea you have and pay the electric bill. :))

That is the pumpkin tea that I’ve never tried but am trying really hard to get my hands on some. I almost don’t want to admit it, but I’ve tried a BUNCH of pumpkin teas and my favorite is still Della Terra Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie. I just like the balance of spice in that one. I know, I should have moved past DT by now, but that’s still a favorite.
I keep buying fruity green tea, and I keep being disappointed. I have a tin of cheap (don’t even really know what it is) Chinese green tea that I bought at a local Asian market. Two tsp of that, three tsp of a fruit tisane in 750 ml of water – cold steep 12 hours. Perfect every time. Preblended fruity greens always seem to get bitter, or there isn’t enough fruit. I do that with a med quality yunnan black, or Davids Bai Hao Yin Zhen white – depending on what base I want.
Lupicia is one of my favorite companies for flavored teas…..
And I just told you to be happy with what you have – sorry, it’s just hard to stop recommending. ;))
