Guys! I am TOTALLY in the home stretch…well mostly, provided no teas show up tomorrow, though i also kind of want them to lol SIPDOWN! Bringing my grand total to 208 and i still have Friday and Saturday! If i don’t manage it, it’s going to be awfully close :) Of course the week after I’ll be back to adding teas into my cupboard but at least i’ll be able to try and keep it around the 200 mark…still aiming for 150 by november heh.

I save this tea for the last of the day because I wanted to pay attention to it. Last time i gulped it down distractedly without taking notes. Soo i um may have accidentally steeped this one for about 25 mins LOL

The good news? It’s only slightly more hibiscusy than i would want. It also REALLY reminds me of another tea. it’s appley and cinnamony and i just enjoy this one. quite a bit. yep tasty! i think this would be pretty good cold too if the hibiscus didn’t overpower everything.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

There are things I want to order but I have resisted. I have 174 in my cupboard, but that does NOT include ANY of my samples! Eep!

Sil

ash – yeah 3 weeks ago i was at roughly 325 including all my samples etc… it’s been a concentrated effort to get down this far in that time. I much refer to keep my cupboard at no more than 200, though less it better for me since i tend to order in larger quantities when i do lol

Terri HarpLady

Your cupboard’s been going down, while mine’s been going up! Kind of like a see-saw :)

Sil

Terri…mine will go up, promise you hahaha. Mostly I need time to sit and split out shared orders and there are at least 2 swaps on their way and 1 order

As the mornings get colder, I’ve been turning to this one more than I have over the past few months. Its fruity caramel taste is just the thing when I arrive at work feeling cold and shivery. It’s not as good at waking me up as my normal morning mate, but it’s certainly a yummy tea. I’ve come to like this one a bit more as time has gone on. AAt first, it was just a confusing mess of flavours, but now I think I understand it better. Red fruit and caramel are a bit of an odd combination, but not terribly so. Somehow, the cinnamon helps to bring them together. Unusual, but I like it!

It’s the second or third time I brew this and I’m not that impressed.
The dry tea looks lovely with the dried apple pieces, the almond pieces (I thought those were hazelnuts), some bark of rose hips. The spices include cinnamon and others, as of now unidentified.
The taste is rather pleasant, though I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon or spices in drinks. The almond flavor makes for a strong basis, but there’s a sour tanginess which strikes me at first, with the spices, that I’m not so fond of.
A very good quality rooibos that I most probably will never rebuy as it does not really correspond to my tastes. It’s definitely not an auto-pick from the cupboard, as there are so many others that I almost hear screaming my name and see jumping in their bags waiting for the teapot.

I have not rebought this yet – i liked it (and it is got a special place in my memory as the only hibiscus done subtle ever) but it´s pretty much not a yumchaa favorite though it would be a rebuy if it was a local supermarket stuff, if that makes any sense. But if ordering from yumchaa, they got many more teas I love better.

The sour tanginess is probably the hibiscus – as i said it´s subtle but there!

Ysaurella

Teresa, do you buy your yumchaa on line or while visiting London ?

Ysaurella

@LaFleurBleue : do you have more attraction for black teas now after different tastings ?

LaFleurBleue

@Ysaurella : I actually like black tea very much; main problem is I can’t drink them, nor green or white, after 3 or 4 pm in the afternoon. Otherwise I cannot fall asleep.
I personally bought my yumchaa online and got it sent to France, as it was quite cheaper than to Singapore – a little under 8 Gpb for 8 bags. It was delivered very quickly – about 2 or 3 days after the order in a thick bubble enveloppe. The enveloppe waited for me about 1 week in a bedroom, which smelled perfectly delicious at our arrival.
@cteresa : I recommend you to try Courtesan next time, no rooibos, and less hibiscus flavoring so no sourness. I believe you would like it and could enjoy it in the hot Portuguese summer.

cteresa

Courtesan sounds lovely indeed, maybe! Though I got a fruit infusion from a spanish blender which might be similar to it and which is so so good iced (and mariage freres´Casablanca. Though I look at how much tea I use and mentally calculate the price and yikes…)

The first couple times I bought Yumchaa I got it in person from their stalls or the camden shop in London. Later I bought it online direct a few times (the mailman praised the smell, said it perfumed his all mailbag!) and often got it through a friend who lived in London. Just got a new package of Wanderlust and oh it is so lovely.

LaFleurBleue

This one is the same in terms of quantity used vs. price. Not the best of yumchaa’s deal. However it is one of my favorites in terms of flavors. I also have a fruit infusion bought in a Chinese grocery and unbranded – it was cheaper but it’s definitely not as good and reeks much more of hibiscus.
I’m quite sure you would like to love it.

This is my foremost example of tea with hibiscus does not NEED to actually stink of it. Hibiscus can be done subtly. Seriously. Though this besides being my foremost example of that, it is also my only example but that is not the point of this review.

If I remember correctly, this tea has rooibos, hibiscus, rosehips, some cinnamon, I think some almond and some other things. All those tastes merge together without clashing and making something new (where even paranoid hibiscus haters can ignore it!). It is a lovely blend, keyword being blend, making something new and just right and totally different out of individual things.

My original tasting note said this was a definite rebuy. It is, though maybe it is not a definite immediate rebuy, this is very good, but a couple or more of other Yumchaa rooibos blends are even better (IMO. YMMV and all that,)

Fiiiinally working through my collection! The more teas I drink, the closer I get to buying some on my shopping list and opening ones I’ve already bought! My mouth is watering just thinking about the Jardin Bleu I have in storage, but first, let’s get through all these teas I’ve amassed over the months!

Last year I placed an order with Yumchaa for their Wanderlust but there was a delay in posting the tea, so to apologise, they sent me a bag of this tea, as well. I’m not much of a fan of rooibos with spices but the fruit and almonds included really piqued my curiosity – and hey, it was free, so why not?

This is my last serving, and in the effort to empty out the bag entirely, I may have brewed it a little stronger than I would normally for rooibos. First off; the aroma is POWERFULLY fruity. Strong citrus, probably helped along by another of the spices, but the scent is so juicy I feel like I could be approaching a fruit tea! And certainly the apple and kiwi come out very strongly in this one; the spices and almonds kind of round off the flavour, but the fruit are definitely the star of this tea. Not much going on in terms of spicy mouthfeel, but I’m glad for that.

What an excellently fruity tea, in any case. Thank you for this adventurous experience, Yumchaa! :D
