I wasn’t sure about this one when I smelled the leaves…..it smelled a bit sharp so I was hesitant to try it. I brewed a pot because okay……the smell tempered a bit and became more gourmand fruity as it steeped.

I had it with sugar and milk. This tea is wonderful. Truly. I though with the notes it had it would be overly candied and cloying but instead it reminds me of the scent of a fruitcake. The cherry and pineapple with the toffee create a rich sweet aura that is heightened when the sugar is added and it truly feels dessert-like. The orange is a fantastic touch, adding the element of ‘holiday’. It’s the scent of a memory, delicious and the kind of scent that in the moment you can’t quite put your finger on.

I brew teas with scents at a slightly lower temperature for black teas……typically around 195 to 200. I find that this helps boost the scenting of the tea rather than having it dissipate. The ‘flavor’ of this tea was apparent from its hottest state to its coldest. Definitely will be a regular cupboard favorite!

Tasty treat today, even if it is an oolong.

Chocolate, caramel, toffee, cereal..what’s not to love? Pretty sure this is more oolong than black tea, or a blend since it always does much better at lower temps, but i seem to have that figured out. I like the spice/cereal notes in this one that blend with the chocolate and caramel. it’s more bready like than caramel chocolate but it’s still delicious

gosh damn i love this tea. It hit all the right notes today since i managed to not only remember to brew it for longer, but also cooled the temp down a bunch. AMAZING how good tea can be when you don’t mess up the parameters lol. Glad to have tried this one, though not necessarily a repurchase for me since it’s a little fussier than others that i love just as much. today this was more like an 85 haha

I always forget i need to brew this one longer than normal. If i don’t, then the toffee and chocolate flavours are a little subdued. I am glad i picked this one up in Paris, though i wish it was a black base, versus oolong. At least it’s an oolong variety that i can get behind :)

I promise a better review once i get back in to the swing of things…maybe after the engagement picture stuff is taken care of. blech. wedding planning is the worst.

simplified review of this one? Oolong that tastes more like a black tea. B&B classify it as a black tea. Cookie, caramel, yum. Glad i picked this one up to try.

had a cup of this today. It’s a miserable wet, cold, sleety sort of day. I really just want winter to just BE here or for it to go away totally. this in between crap sucks

You mean you don’t like our weekends that are literally 50 degrees different from weekend to weekend (i.e. -43.5 one saturday and +7 the next)?

Evol Ving Ness

This particular sleet and cold soggy feet day was the mother of all miserable February weather days. Bah!

I comforted myself with milky sweet chai when I got home from that.

last tea of the day…too tired to make tea tonight after work and the movie. I love the vanilla in this one – just makes for a really nice cup of black vanilla like tea. Glad i took a chance on this one in paris.

Final Count: 142 (still haven’t had a chance to weigh my cupboard bah!)
