This is what my daughter and I started out with when we grabbed the Sherlock tin bundle – and it was a great choice! Creamy with a chai kick, that’s the best way to describe this. Maybe a touch cake-y.

This is just okay. Got it at Robust level flavoring, and while it’s definitely raspberry, it’s chemical-tasting and smelling. There’s a depth to it that I assume is chocolate, however it’s just not enough for me to say… truffle.

Preparation
Iced

drank Tiramisu Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Ah, I love tiramisu, even if it’s been a while since I’ve had it. I definitely wanted to try this at a Robust flavor, because I’m finding I prefer all the dessert matchas stronger. This was creamy, eggy, and chocolatey, although I did miss any sort of flaky pastry in the mix.

Preparation
Iced 0 OZ / 0 ML

Oh me too.. A favorite dessert, & we have a restaurant nearby that does them well. Unfortunately we usually have someone with us & I have to share. I need to try my hand at making it myself sometime! Sounds like this was pretty close… And much better for you!

Robust flavoring this time around, and this is by far the best version I’ve had. Creamy, peanutty, with a bit of dryness that I associate with nuts. Yum!

Sounds like Yum! Wonder what it would taste like if you made it a smoothie and added a banana?? I enjoy a peanut butter and banana sandwich once and awhile… Maybe I’ll just add a touch of peanut butter to my smoothie this morning. You inspired me :)

Sounds great

Wow, this is super tasty tea, and definitely needs trying as a cold steep! Juicy peach, or I guess in this case maracuya (passionfruit), reigns supreme, and it’s absolutely divine. I may need to get more of this!

Smelled richly of chocolate as I opened the bag, and then just as much after steeping. It was a beautiful cup hot, but as it cools I’ve lost the chocolate flavor other than the richness of it, and it’s become a bit astrigent for my liking.

drank Lemon & Ginger by Clipper

This is what I drink when I’ve had too much to drink, and I’m an obnoxious arse who asks their nearest and dearest inappropriate things that makes everyone laugh — too inappropriate for Steepster, I assure you. Thanks for putting up with me, friends, even if sometimes I’m a bit.. mischievous! :) And thank you, tea, for allowing me to purge myself of this lovely wino-ishness.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 4 tsp 18 OZ / 532 ML
Hello.Kiki

That’s ok, I think everyone does that to some extent. Last fourth of July/my birthday after far too many shots of tequila, I spent fifteen minutes crying to my husband about how wonderful and sexy I think he is lol.

ooh, this is delicious! I get little almond, but I’m okay with that, as it’s a really nummy chocolate tea. Dinosara you’ve spoiled me rotten. Thank you!

drank Organic Chocolate "O" by The Tea Spot

Smells strongly of chocolate, and tastes of it when hot. Cold, it’s more tea than chocolate, while warm, I wasn’t a fan at all. Hot though, this was liquid chocolate awesomeoness.

Dinosara thank you so much for letting me try so many teas on my wishlist. This was something I’d wanted pretty much since day one on Steepster, and I’m really glad I got a chance to try it!

Profile

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
