Im kinda disappointed. it smells amazingly caramelly. but there doesnt seem to be any caramel taste to it. I dont know where the caramel went. it was there before being brewed then…poof!…it was gone.
Theres something lovely but slightly unsettling about drinking a sparkly tea. And yes it does actually sparkle. The silver cachous actually give the tea a glittery sheen.
sparkles aside, it is a lovely tea. It has such a strong toasty flavour with a lovely sweet apricot taste as well. I love the really strong black base to it. I love this base lupicia uses (I think its the same base as cookie and joyeux noel – two of my favourite teas).
Dont steep for too long or it will be awfully strong.

I got a free sample of this tea today with my order from lupicia. The oolong base is quite nice. Although the Amanatsu is Japanese (I believe) it tastes like a Taiwanese oolong. The amanatsu flavour is very subtle and delicate. Its almost more of an after taste than a real flavour in the tea. As Im not a huge fan of citrusy teas I quite like the subtlety of it. Id consider buying this.
Yick. blah. dont like it. dont like it at all.
I really like this tea. Its really refreshing and sweet but its not too sweet like a lot of honeybush/fruit teas. Its quite nice.
This tea is quite nice. It has more of a cocoa taste than a sweet chocolate taste. Its quite good.
So sweet and tasty. I love this tea.
fluoro… tasty… but so fluoro.
This is just amazing. Its definitely bizarre but so good. When first brewed it turns a dark greeny blue but then turns to a yellowy colour when brewed.
When you take a sip its herbaceous but then has a super sweet aftertaste. It is just so tasty. Love it.
I’ve been wanting to try this for a while and I finally ordered it! I’m so glad I did. Its meant to be a recreation of the original earl grey tea. It is quite different to your typical earl grey but still has that very earl grey-ish quality but just a little more exotic.
I love the smokiness of this tea which balances perfectly with the longan fruit. Its a very relaxing tea.
I like it. Its sweet but refreshing. I love the smokiness of the tea in combination with the honey and pear flavours. delicious.
This is just a plain jasmine flower infusion. No tea of any kind just the jasmine flowers.
It is beautiful. Enough said.
My bundle of rabbit hole tea arrived this morning. I decided I would try berry bomb first. To be honest Ive thought of buying this tea for a while (based on so many glowing reviews) but havent because I’ve tried so many either disappointing or just plain awful berry flavoured black teas before (for example berry fruit from the tea centre).
I actually really like this one though. I can smell the different types of berries in it rather than the whole thing just being a random generic “berry” flavour. I can detect the raspberries and blueberries as distinct flavours rather than just rolled into one.
The black tea itself seems to fit perfectly with the berries with neither flavour, the berries or the black tea overpowering the other.
The only bad thing about this tea, I only bought a sample size.
I now understand why pandas love bamboo.
This is the first flavoured puerh I have tried. The sweet orange flavour is definitely subtle but it takes a bit of the smokey harshness off the puerh. Its probably a very good tea for puerh beginners who arent used to really smokey teas.
once again, another fantastic tea from the rabbit hole. I love the teas from this company because they are usually ones that you wont find elsewhere. There is a ton of peppermint teas out there, but adding pineapple. genius. The subtle sweetness of the pinapple really sets this apart from a typical peppermint tea.
I usually brew this tea with boiling water, and its great. however today I had my kettle set for oolong (90 degrees C) and didnt realise. I was driving to work drinking it and thought that it tasted even better than usual. the pineapple was much more pronounced and i think i will probably continue to use the lower temperature.
basically, big fan of this tea.
My order from Mariage Freres arrived today. This one smelt the best so i decided to try it first. Its a really nice vanilla tea. It has a really good strong vanilla taste. This is probably the best vanilla flavoured black tea ive had. I found a lot of others to be a a bit weak on the vanilla side. but not this one. very very vanillary. tasty.
