Thank you to Stash for sending me this free sample on one of their new fair trade teas.

This has so much potential, it could have been a great cup for someone else. Unfortunately, I am not the best taster for something with dandelion root and chicory, because the roasted root taste is bitter and very…rooty. The chicory is just gross (as is all chicory). I just don’t find any redeeming qualities in a cup of bitter root water. I think anyone who enjoys dandelion root and chicory would really enjoy this, however. The ingredients themselves are high quality and ethically acquired (fair trade).

Flavors: Bitter, Medicinal, Mineral, Musty, Roasted, Sweet, Taro Root, Wood

drank Coconut Chocolate Truffle by Tea Forte

As it turns out, this doesn’t steep as well as a coldbrew. Half a perfect cup ouch (~2g), 400 mL cold water, 30 minutes and the water is clear. At 45 minute the water is very light amber, but smells fragrant. I think perhaps the flavour steeps out before all of the tannins.

Hot, it tastes more of cocoa shells and coconut, but cold is tastes very heavily of coconut filling in chocolate bars (very thick, sweet, overpowering coconut). It isn’t bad, but isn’t for anyone who doesn’t love coconut.

Flavors: Coconut, Cream, Creamy, Sweet, Thick

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

There are people that don’t love coconut? oh wait Mom’s like that. She does like toasted coconut though.

Better as a latte than straight, although the tea is so finely ground no teabag or steeper will prevent tiny particles from forming a layer at the top of the cup.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Licorice, Spices, Spicy

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 45 sec 15 OZ / 450 ML

Profile

Bio

I think I speak for everyone here when I say tea is one of the greatest luxuries in life.

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons.

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sale/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard on here is not up to date. See my stash here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
