From DAVIDsTEA

High altitude taste

Have you heard of the barbegazi? According to Swiss lore, they are a group of furry little men that live high in the Alps. They are known for their long, icy beards and enormous feet, which they use to ski down hills and surf on avalanches. But how do they stay warm up in the frozen mountains all year round? We like to think it’s with a fortifying brew like this almond-scented rooibos, with apple, cinnamon, and ginger. If you see some very big footprints next time you’re out hiking, follow them to the barbegazi’s cave and see if they offer you a cup. Limited edition.

Ingredients: Rooibos, coconut chips and rasps, apple pieces, cinnamon pieces, ginger bits, cardamom, black pepper, rose blossoms, almond flakes, artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Tree nuts and coconut

OK…let me tell you, when the winter collection came out…as a newbie to this tea thing I RAN to the store to get it to try it out, I tried Hot Tobaggan and loved it. Today while I was working on my computer, I decided to brew a pot of Alpine Punch. The smell was to die for and yes this smelled and tasted like warm Amaretto without getting the effect. I am so loving this tea that I think I will be making a stop for a tin…it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside

Mmmm tried this tea at my friends this morning. Great tea for a great hangout with my friend and her two little ones.

Not only does this tea taste delicious, it smells amazing! I think I might love the smell even more than the taste! Gonna have to pick some of this up for myself. Yumm.

I liked this rooibos when I first tried it. But there is something in the flavor—some artificiality—that really puts me off. Yesterday afternoon the weather was cold, wet and raw and I needed a hot beverage without caffeine. So I gave this a try again, and it was okay. Still a little something not quite right though.

YUMMY!! I wonder what Bubbie’s Baklava is like because to me, this tastes like baklava! Almond, rose, honey, very buttery… everything is there. I drink this as a latte with eggnog and milk and it’s just delicious. I’m definitely buying another 100g tin of this tea… And I’ll probably try Bubbie’s Baklava to compare.

This one sure took me on a roller coaster ride. Every sip of my first cup was filled with warm roasted almonds and comforting spices. However, the last couple cups fell a little flat. Where did the almonds go? At least the rooibos base consistently behaved well. No woodsy base notes to be found. It makes a decent caffeine-free cup with light cream but overall I won’t bother with it again.

Steak, Brussels sprouts, and mashed potatoes = a mega stuffed moi! Looking forward to trying out some more tea tonight.

Ooh, darn. I forgot about this one. I used to LOVE it and bought 100g, but then the love died… and I barely touch it. I think one 50g bag isn’t even open. I hope the coconut is ok :/ It’s nearly 3 years old at this point.

Fjellrev

Oh yeah, let’s hope you don’t have a rancid mess on your hands. :/ How many times have I bought a larger amount of something only to get sick of it so soon. Sigh.

I’ve been a lot better quantity-wise lately. My biggest mistake was buying like, 8 oz. of 52teas’ Chocolate Malt Mate, or whatever it is. Yikes. I never ever drink that anymore.

Tea of the month, finally got around to tasting it. I was worried it would be way to sweet, but I was surprised. Always lovely to have a caffeine-free and sugar free tea. This is a rooibos blend that smells like sweet marzipan and spice, with a little bit of apple tartness. The aftertaste is super creamy, almost coconutty. This is a nice alternative to the various chais and super fruity herbals out this time of year, and it’s not too sweet, even when steeped for hours. The red medicine rooibos flavor is mild and works well with the strong almond. It is definitely like a nutty, marzipan apple cake in a cup. So glad I tried it!

It’s starting to be chilly in the mornings (although still warming up in the afternoon), and I thought this tea would hit the spot. I guess I haven’t rated it before, but this is hardly my first time drinking it. I’ve discovered over time that I’m not the biggest rooibos fan, but there is enough in this tea to cover the base. I do like the fruity and coconut of the tea…a nice pick-me-up, although there’s no caffeine.

Pass the Stash TTB #17

Almonds are my first love. And this tea is wonderfully almondy. Though there are some aftertastes that I am less than thrilled with (oh, hey, look there’s ginger in the ingredient list) but for the most part I’m enjoying this. I wish there was some added depth in flavor though – maybe something to add some creaminess or sweetness. Mmm.

I sampled this in store today. It was okay, but really made no impression on me. It just tasted kind of weak and generic? I was expecting much more, since I’ve ready lots of good reviews of it.

Kicking myself for not buying a full tin of this, as it’s a winter seasonal. Really, really tasty. And it would be really good as an ice tea as well. Like gourmet fruit punch for adults. Great dessert tea and decaf so I can have it late at night. Really just makes you physically smack your lips, it’s so good. It’s on the sweet side of what I normally like so I brew it a little weaker than most herbals. Very distinct tastes within the tea.
