I’m drinking this cold, and the mint and white chocolate are pretty well balanced, strong, and bright. Many versions of this sort of tea are really artificial and disappointing. This one ended up a little oily, but I don’t mind that, and the flavor was quite pleasant. This is a nice option, though at that price, I’d still choose another brand if I were in the market for this flavor profile. I did like that they used white chocolate like in my favorite Teavana version.

I need to try Simpson & Vail’s White Chocolate Peppermint green rooibos… It’s on my list for my next order!

Also I haven’t tried Plum Deluxe yet, but I’m excited for my advent calendar! :D

That one’s on my list too! Yeah I’m definitely excited for all my advents (:

I don’t really “do” advents anymore like everyone else, aside from trying to find those companies that typically only sell “large” quantities of tea or their teas are on the spendy side and use the advent as a handy way to “get samplers” that otherwise aren’t available. I got a Plum Deluxe advent this year too, as their price per ounce for tea is rather high, but the cost of the advent to get 24 samplers was quite reasonable, especially compared to many other advents. (Still hasn’t shipped, though…)

@Mastress Alita – That’s kind of the point for me, too – to get a lot of samples in one package. Although it is also fun in conjunction with Steepster, because you get to read others’ thoughts on the same tea that you had each day. :)

See, last year Steepster “spoiled” an advent calender gift I got because someone was doing their advent on different days, and that kinda put me off. I even stopped reading the site for a time, then when I came back, I had a ridiculous amount of reading to catch up on… now I just rip all the samplers out of the advent immediately. I don’t celebrate Christmas anyway. I probably won’t log any of them until much later… and not mention they were “part of” an advent.

I just got a notice 3 days ago that the Plum Deluxe advent was shipping. Tracking still doesn’t have it in their system as picked up yet.

Cameron B.

Oh, well that’s not cool. I’ve been doing two advents this month but I’m saving all the notes in a spreadsheet to post on the correct days in December.

Mastress Alita

Huh. I pre-ordered back in October, and STILL haven’t received a shipping notice…

I pre-ordered the Plum Deluxe advent in October too, and was wondering when it would ship. I reached out and they said they sent it yesterday….but I never got a tracking email. May be the same for you.

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
