this is a new blend coming out from janet that she included as a surprise sample in my order for some of the trouble i encountered with her website. I have to say sometimes that i like having issues with my orders if only to really see how stores deal with problems. Janet has some excellent customer service in case you were wondering :)

I’m beginning to notice a trend with a lot of Janet’s black blends in that they all taste vaguely familiar. In this case, i’m getting memories of the steapshoppe’s cinnamon swirl bread but without the cinnamon part. :) not that it’s a bad thing but so far i’m finding i can live with msotly just her cinnamon swirl bread in my cupboard and maybe one of the chocolate teas. I’ve got plenty more to try though and i’m looking forward to it!

This is an interesting mix of teas, & reads kind of like a who’s who of steap shoppe teas, almost as if they swept up a mix of leftovers from various teas, added a few more things, & voila! Pound Cake!

The truth is, I’m sure nothing could be further from the truth. I have never ordered from Steap Shoppe, but have received samples of quite a few of their tasty teas from various friends, & they’ve all been good, especially the cinnamon bread & brioche blends. So I know a lot of care went into this blend.

The results? It’s tasty! Bready, buttery, thick to the tongue. I can feel & taste the pound cake reference, & my hat is off to Steap Shoppe for their efforts. Thanks to Sil for this sample.

this is their new one…not sure if it’s on the website yet. Janet sent it to help make up for some cart issues we had to figure out. Excellent customer service!

Thanks to Sil for the sample, and the easy sipdown! (156)

So I can’t cheat with this and read the description, which is unsettling. What am I drinking? What should I be looking for? Well… it’s a black tea?

It’s also a little heavy, like the cinnamon swirl. I should have checked to see if there was puerh in the leaves, but now I’ll never know. It’s amber coloured and smells slightly sweet too. Hmmm… It’s a bit rich? It’s tasty? It’s MYSTERIOUS. I wouldn’t say no to more of this either, but I think I’d rather just drink the Cinnamon Swirl since it’s incredible!

I really like this one and Lance likes it too, Just now as I was going to post about it and I read the posts before I realize that this one DOES in fact taste kinda like the “sunrise sensation” from steapshoppe which IS itself kinda similar to the cinnamon swirl bread, this one is kinda of minus the cinnamon compared to those two but I still think Janet’s teas are quite nice, I really like her tea spices they are awesome!
anyways Lance fave is the sunrise sensation and he really liked this one too :)

Thank you Janet for this Sample Tea

My first puerh’s were flavored ones. I don’t really consider this ‘flavored’, not like the ones that were sprayed with who-knows-what alcohol artificial flavorings that would make me barf if I drank them now.
But then, I thought that tea was dessert and a subsitute for cake and cookies. Tea was a way for me to indulge my cravings and lose weight.
It worked for awhile. I lost 20 lbs. in the first few months that I landed here on Steepster.

Then I became a tea snob.

No, no, no! I hope I didn’t/am not. I just changed and learned some things about tea and how it effected my health.

Tea has been revolutionary.

Within the last several years of drinking tea, I decided to change. I lost more weight, made new tea friends, ate healthier, and now drink tea that is naturally flavored or not flavored at all(I wouldn’t be rude if offered artificially flavored tea).

I was pleased when Janet created her first naturally flavored Puerh Tea, Cinnamon Swirl (which was outstanding)! Talk about a good dessert!

This new pound cake tea was a direction I didn’t expect. Usually, companies create chocolate or strawberry puerh but Janet was playing with bready Puerh instead of more common cedar or woody tasting puerh. I think her choice was smart.

The first steep was ‘nice’ (as in ok or average).
The second steep was much better because the puerh was ‘awake’ and contributed more flavor and full-bodied breadiness to the pound cake tea making it truly dessert-like.

I suggest adding milk for sure, even coconut or almond milk would be delicious. Stir with a cinnamon stick or throw in a piece of ginger for flavored pound cake.

I re-steeped 3 pots of tea 20oz each.

A cocoa nib version of this same tea would taste just like chocolate chip cookies!
