drank Strawberry Rhubarb Pie by Tealyra
8479 tasting notes

Tried this one from Evol Ving Ness today and while it was a tasty cup, the flavours seemed a little muted. David’s tea – strawberry rhubarb parfait is more up my alley as i expect POP from strawberry rhubarb versus…oh hey..hi there… :) Still enjoyable but i want moar taste!

Final Count: 106


I look to you as the authority on strawberry rhubarb pie flavoured teas

pulled this one out today and added a splash of maple syrup since it’s smokey. a weird experiment since it didn’t have quite the same effect as say lapsang + maple. need to experiment more.

Couldn’t help myself…made another cup of this tonight. Love the caffeine free option even though it’s a little less OOOMPH-Y than the black tea base. I can’t order more of this until i get through some more of my samples….so i’d better hoard it a little :)

Final Count: 107


I bought this one too and the tea itself looks almost like it’s wet or something? Does yours look like that or that it’s coated in something? I made it into a latte and felt so sick afterwards…and I’m now wondering if it’s the tea …


That’s the honey if i remember correctly – ie. it should look/feel wet.

sample from omgsrsly had this one earlier in the evening. It’s a little more rooibosy than i recall but still has that delightful orangey gingerbreadish taste that i’m a fan of :) thanks again omg!

Sample from evol ving ness this is another revisit for me :) turns out this one has grown on me a little since i had it. (bumping the rating up a little) There;s a sweetness to this one with some notes in here – sort of fruity with a little bit of malt. I wouldn’t classify this as a malty assam though. just a nice cup – good for an afternoon sort of tea. thanks evol!

drank Cherry Fantasy by Tealux

Sample from evol ving ness and a tea revisit for me. I apparently had this about 4 years ago so i’m always interested to see if my opinions have changed. Looks like, in the grand scheme of things, i haven’t changed on this one :) while the tea isn’t terribad…there’s something about the cherry flavouring that just doesn’t have me wanting much more than this cup. It’s not quite cough syrup but there’s still something here i don’t love. thanks for the revisit evol! :)

Sample from evol ving ness This one isn’t my cup of tea. something about the raspberry and rosehips that just doesn’t sit right. I suspect that’s more of a personal preference thing than a reflection of the tea. However, always appreciate trying new things!


meh. it’s already out of my cupboard heh

drank Canadian Dream | Maple Tea by Tealux

Another sample from evol ving ness this is absolutely a maple tea. And funnily enough, while i adore maple added to my smokey teas – this is too sweet for me :) the maple is a tiny bit artificial but it still embodies the whole idea of maple tea :) recommend this for anyone who likes maple and sweet teas :)

Evol Ving Ness

Maybe this is the one that needs to be added to a less-than-stellar Lapsang Souchong then?


ooh there’s an idea!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
