I think this might be a pumpkin spice blend from Bulk Barn?

Maybe???

At any rate, it’s fine. Nothing special. Not super pumpkiny. Nothing fancy for the spices. I’ll drink it, but probably won’t get any spice teas from Bulk Barn again.

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA
2243 tasting notes

I think I only made this twice with a 54g package. (It’s uhh, dated May 9 2018 folks…)

It’s tasty. I like the pineapple base which means I can drink it. It’s iced. It’s hydrating. It’s a little tart weirdly so it could probably have done with some sweetener but I’ll still drink it.

Yep.

Also, steepster is still super annoying on the phone, huh.

drank Psychocandy by August Uncommon Tea

Yum. This tea is still so good!

I rearranged my kitchen cupboards which necessitated rearranging my teas, and I found this one.

I still really like it. Why haven’t I drank it more? No clue. I would order from them again if… oh hey, they are now offering “15-cup” bags for about $10. It looks like they’re not doing those seasonal releases in tins only! Oh, I might be able to pick up some of my favourite herbals. I’ll have to see where I’m at with drinking up all my no caffeine teas before I work teas into my budget again…

Yep, black currant tea!

With milk and honey right now.

I bought this to ice, but I do not like it iced. So I’m drinking what I have hot.

drank Weaver's Blend by The Capilano

Yum!

Standard steep with milk. I still really like this tea.

I’m drinking it with the Shutterbean earl grey chocolate cake. I haven’t made it for a couple years but it’s delicious as ever.

Shae

Just looked up the recipe for this cake and I’m really wishing I had all of the ingredients to make it right now. Which Earl Grey did you use?

OMGsrsly

Some random unlabelled one in my stash. :)

drank Hiking the Canyon by The Capilano

Still super sad that it looks like The Capilano is closed.

Having this one iced today, with a bit of honey. I still love this tea – it’s one of my favourites. Vegetal from the nettle, sour from the hibiscus and rosehip, citrus from the sumac and peels… just a really nice tea.

I think I prefer it hot, but I’m definitely not mad that I decided to ice it. It’s one herbal tea I can drink with abandon (no apples!).

drank Authentic Chai by Domo
2243 tasting notes

I made this as an iced milky chai and it’s really good. The blend I have does contain sugar, and I don’t love it hot (too sweet), but cold it’s delicious!

I steeped 4 tsp for 3 min in 1 cup boiling water, and I used a tea bag – there are a lot of bits in this tea that are super finely ground, and I wanted to be sure that they wouldn’t end up in my final drink. Then I added 1 cup cold water and chilled it.

My drink was ice, 2/3 milk, 1/3 chai concentrate. It’s so good! I will be using up the rest of this bag making iced chai this summer. Yum.

More of this from Sil! I just checked and neither my last review nor Sil’s review has disappeared this time.

Maybe age has improved it or I’m back at “YAY TEA” as far as flavour profiles go… but I do like it. Malty yum. Little astringent. Perfect and sweet with a splash of milk.

I should note on here that I’m now a masters student. Yes. I’m doing a masters degree AND working full-time. So I have today off as a vacation day and I’m sitting here doing readings for class. It’s a perfect time to drink lots of tea.

If I could visit with family or friends life would be good… O.o

Wow, congrats on your masters! That is a lot to tackle all at once. I envy your commitment (:

mrmopar

Congrats ! Quite an accomplishment.

OMGsrsly

Thanks! I mean, for this particular program it’s not as much of an accomplishment (it’s not a thesis-based program!), but it’s a lot of fun and I’m learning an awful lot. There are a lot of papers, though…

eastkyteaguy

Which subject are you doing your master’s in?

OMGsrsly

Post secondary education. :)

eastkyteaguy

Very cool.

drank Assam by Joseph Wesley Black Tea
2243 tasting notes

Yum! So good.

Fruity, malty, delicious.

Of course I’m having it with milk. And hot, even though it’s fairly warm out today.

So warm, in fact, I’m planning to take myself out on a picnic dinner! I made a couple things on my lunch break, and will need to mix up my limeade and fry up my marinating chicken before I head out. I’d do iced tea, but I don’t really have much in the way of fruity teas. I can no longer have apple, so my go-to selections are not good options.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Wow! Blast from the past! So great to see you!

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I’ve been off Steepster a while. And then I was doing YouTube stuff for work and a tea vlogger was recommended and I decided to dig through my (real old) samples! Working from home definitely makes tea easier!

drank Peach Ginger by Bulk Barn
2243 tasting notes

Made into an iced tea with honey. Not bad. Probably needed more leaves but I was using the reminder of my bag.

Would buy again. Possibly. In the future. When transit isn’t as much of a serious health risk.

Weirdly I can drag the bars on my Android but not on my iPad. Oh, Steepster.

Preparation
5 tsp 34 OZ / 1000 ML
