From sTEAp Shoppe

At first you will be enveloped by the aroma of cardamon a subtle yet fragrant spice that lingers in you senses as you take you first sip. The cranberry like flavor of lingonberry will hit your taste buds and bring them alive. In the background you will get just a touch of citrus to round out the experience. As you swallow the lingonberry will linger on your tongue surrounded by the robust floral flavor of this high grown Ceylon Black Tea.

This is FANTASTIC! With the flavors of orange and cardamom you get a very “orange spice” kind of feel to the background. It isn’t overly spicy, just warm and exotic, and the orange is sweet and adds a little bit of brightness to the overall cup. But what really makes this blend unique is the lingonberry. Lingonberry can be very tart but here it isn’t overwhelmingly so. It is tart … but there is more of a sweet-tart kind of taste rather than straight up tart… which probably has a bit to do with the addition of the orange to this blend.

The sweet-tart taste is there throughout the sip, and the finish is tingly and tarty and lingonberry-ish. The warmth of the cardamom is also present throughout the sip, while the Ceylon plays a good support for the rest of the flavors – offering a delicious, medium-bodied flavor of black tea without becoming too intrusive on the flavor. In this case, that is a really good thing because it’s a lovely way to experience lingonberry.

I like this one a lot. This might just become my “holiday blend” alternative. Very nice.

Had this last night but it was so late (early!) I forgot to log it and don’t remember the details, oops. Will have to give it another go…I do recall being pleased you could taste the lingonberry (love lingonberry preserves!); it’s not strong but it lingers at the end of the sip.

I believe I got this from Lazey, thank you!

I prefer the Lingonberry tea from last night, the addition of spice to the mix is alright, but I prefer just straight berry. Not sure also how I feel about black tea as the base for the flavor. It could make for an interesting iced tea though, I may have to try it that way.

That’s really all I want to say right now…just found out a guy who had been playing for the Canadiens’ AHL team and suffered a fractured skull back in Nov is retiring from hockey…he’s 24…I saw his first game as a Canadien, and I really liked him because he was from the south too. Also he was the FOURTH generation of the same family to play for the Habs. So sad.

A nice, citrus-tasting tea. Also tastes like cranberries, which I guess is the lingonberries. Slight hints of cardamon. As this tea cools I notice that it tastes fruitier. This cup I only added a touch of sugar to, but I might try it with a little milk later.

This tea almost feels familiar, which is a good thing. Not a bad tea to start the day off with.

Second steeping- about 4 minutes with 200 degree water. The cardamon is more noticeable, the citrus/berry taste is only a little weaker, same for the ceylon tea. How do they make tea this strong? Didn’t add any sugar to this cup. No milk either, on second though I’m not sure if the lingonberry would curdle milk and don’t want to risk it.

I purchased this tea along with a few others from sTEAp shoppe hoping to try something new. The anticipation of waiting for a new tea is one I delight in. The day the box arrived I found myself savoring each moment as I opened each tin of tea and got lost in the wonderful aroma’s. Once I open the tea I must consider the proper food to serve it with in order to embrace it’s true intent. Yes, Tea has intent you must first smell then steep it partake in the flavors without any sweetener then add a sweetener to see what additional flavor notes can be pulled from it by adding sweetness. Tasting tea is not just relaxation it is a mission with intent. Well getting back to the tea I must say from first scent I was engaged with the unique aroma of Cardamon a wonderfully mild yet bold spice. As I took my first sip of the first cup I found my taste buds attracted to a tart berry flavor and noticed the color of the steep had a pinkish hue to it. This was floral yet fruity with a bit of orange to compliment the cranberry like flavor. The Second cup I found had a more subdued berry flavor and the floral hearty tones of the Ceylon tea and the earthy Cardamon came through a bit more. This tea is such a departure from any tea I’ve tasted and resteeping your cup seems to bring on such a drastic change it it’s flavor it was like I was drinking a different tea almost. Very exciting. I decided this tea deserved the perfect accompaniment and I was on a mission to find it. As I combed the isles of the grocery store I debated whether to counter balance the flavors or to mimic them. I made my selection and as I left the store a whole new bit of excitement came over me as I anticipated what my flavors would bring to this tea. So I sat down for lunch on a sunny Saturday with hot tea in had. I had created a sandwich I felt would be worthy of my spectacular tea. I found this spectacular deli that sold smoked turkey (the real stuff none of that processed crap) a wonderfully crispy yet soft centered Ciabatta fresh from the oven and created what I believe worked beautifully. Slightly toasted Ciabatta with a wonderful cranberry Wensleydale cheese just barley melted onto it 3 sliced of my juicy smoked turkey, 2 thinly sliced heirloom tomato slices, a small bunch of arugula and the condiment of choice a sweet corn aioli(my own creation). There have been better Saturday afternoons I am sure but I can’t think of one right now.
