This sample is also thanks to Mastress Alita. I didn’t remember if I’d eaten treacle before, but once I tasted this tea, I realized that I must have because this flavor is very familiar! This tea is so sweet, and it has a cakey flavor as well. I need to remember to drink green tea while it’s still warm though, because with this and many other green teas, as they sit there, the flavor seems to get a bit strange. Maybe that’s just me. But anyway, when I was drinking the first half of this warm a few hours ago, it was quite nice. I don’t enjoy treacle enough that I would seek out more treacle teas, but it was fun for sure.

I believe Treacle is the same thing as Molasses.

So I’ve looked it up, and apparently golden syrup also counts as treacle. And “black treacle” is the same as molasses. The more you know!

Aha! I’d say this one is more like golden syrup than molasses. So I guess we’ve all had treacle before!

I’ve actually never had golden syrup, has far as I know… only caramel, which is what this tasted like to me, so that’s probably the closest thing my palate could identify to form an association. It certainly tasted more like caramel than honey to me. And I know I’ve never had the actual dessert where golden syrup is soaked in a sponge cake. I really love this tea, though… I was sad it lost the tea elections!

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
