#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #90 overall / Tea #6 for March
#drinkwhatyouown February slot 22/25
Wednesday 3/3 — Another longer day with work as I came in a little early and learned some basic tasks in another department (1230-3) before my 3-11 shift. Needed something hot/warm & tisane (because I have 7a-3p Thurs 3/4) towards the end of my day so I pulled this out of my bag (2 teabags) and this answered the call. Not “the best tea ever” but I enjoy when I do grab a box of this for something easy and fruity.

A friend of mine gave me two boxes filled with a. variety of tea bags. So sweet of her. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I am a bit of a tea snob—not really as I will try almost any tea—and have mountains of loose tea at home. Mountains.
So I am housesitting, which means that I have peace and quiet, internet access and a reliable fridge to keep milk in.
This tea is ok, but just. Having been blessed with Anne’s stellar chais, this one hardly compares. But I’ll drink it because milk, winter, cold.
And Steepster, oh how I have missed you. My wifi died and then my computer died and then I couldn’t remember my passwords to come back and could not even possibly start a NEW Evol account. And then there’s been the thing of my neighbours keeping me awake for the past 5 years and me having lost the will to live in this permanently exhausted state. And my own health issues even before that started. And then, of course, this covid situation, God help us all.
But while I have wifi for now, I am back!
Another tea bag from ashmanra, thank you!
Well, this tea sounds great but it isn’t that great as name suggests. The orange isn’t juicy at all, ginger way too strong as well. Overall it tastes quite watery as well and flat.
It’s a shame, becasue when I have opened the pouch, it was very mouthwatering and nice aroma. It was like a fresh orange juice with hints of tangy ginger. But nope. The result is sad.
Flavors: Ginger, Orange
TEA MAIL from ashmanra, thank you for sharing a few cups with me again :)
Okay, another exam passed. I was exhausted. And cold, as it was raining all the time I was going home from the train station. Felt asleep watching a ice hockey match in early afternoon!
So, decided to brew this one. It sounded very fiery and I wasn’t that sure about it at all, ginger and Mate; Fire in name, I was afraid this tea isn’t for me.
Well, it has got indeed interesting taste. I had Yerba Maté several times, but never cared if roasted or not, or how it should taste like and those things.
Today cuppa woke me up sucessfully. And it was somehow mineral, quite spicy (fiery, from ginger I guess) but it wasn’t excessively. A wee hint of cinnamon.
Wouldn’t call it Chai honestly. It was a ginger drink with yerba maté. That’s it.
Flavors: Ginger, Mineral
I made a pot of this to share with my partner, who is slowly opening up to more and more teas. I added a splash of milk to mine. It was very floral and lavendery today, I didn’t really get much bergamot! I meant to add sugar and completely forgot. I’ve never had an amount of tea this big, I think it allows the ingredients to mix and separate interestingly and each cup seems like it’ll be different! What an interesting tea adventure
I’m trying (yet again) to get back into reviewing teas on Steepster. I love the community and always miss this place :)
One of the reasons I’m trying to get back in is because I bought a new milk frother to make tea lattes with! I’m a sucker for London Fogs and want to try replicating those at home. I saw a review on the milk frother that said this tea was a great way to do just that! I was excited to see that Stash had a loose leaf version and bought that, not realizing I was buying an entire pound of tea that I had never tried before!
I brewed this today with my amateurly frothed milk (definitely needs practice!). I was getting Earl Grey bergamoty flavors, as well as a kind of floral perfumey bitterness. I’m not sure if I got a bit too much lavender or steeped it too long or what! I added some simple syrup and that smoothed out the bitterness but covered up the lavender.
Now that it’s cooled off to a kind of lukewarm temp, I’m getting more lavender as well as a more distinctly orange flavor. I have a whole pound of this tea to get through so I’m looking forward to playing around with it! Maybe I’ll even try to get into baking and cooking with tea!
Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Lavender, Orange
this is a tea that must be had with milk, but only non-dairy milks with vanilla flavoring, because the artificial vanilla flavoring of said non-dairy milks masks the base flavors of the tea. this is my first review on this website and the tea is absolutely atrocious; never trust a bagged tea that promises well-rounded or even interesting flavors. respectfully. i’d try to brew the tea for longer and at a lower temperature, but i literally boiled it according to the instructions on the box. maybe if mixed with a coffee in a dirty chai kind of situation this tea could be nice, but other reviewers are correct in saying this tea tastes like dirt.
Flavors: Artificial, White Chocolate
I have received this tea bag from ashmanra with wonderful New Year (and Christmas) greeting card. Thank you!
Apparently, again a new tea bag for my collection. And apparently a day with most tea drank today, so far in this week. Compensation for yesterday with only two cups.
Anyway to Organic Very Berry. It’s hibiscus and thus tart. I don’t notice any rooibos. I can believe being it super tasty iced and Mastress Alita would be a fan of this as well. Red currants. Nope, they aren’t in. But raspberries? I guess so.
Well, I think I had better berry teas. This is a bit overflowes with hibiscus. It’s just unfortunately very tart. If it was less tart, I would enjoy this tea more, I am sure.
Flavors: Berry, Hibiscus, Raspberry
I wanted something Chocolate-y tonight and this was pretty much all I had. Not quite what I wanted but I do like this one! It’s a lovely night time tea. Very creamy with some mint and lavender. I’ve been meaning to work on finishing up the box of this anyway.
2020 Advent Swap – Day 22
You’ll love the smell of this tea, it puts me in a good mood!!
I can see why Devon Bartholomew said this tea puts her in a good mood – it smells exactly like the green apple Jolly Ranchers! The aroma is very strong in the bag but lightens after steeping. It still tastes more like apple candy than pear to me, though I do eat pears much less often than apples and associate them more with their sandy texture than with any pronounced flavor. The green tea was light but noticeable. I don’t think I’ve tried many pear teas so this was very unique.
Flavors: Apple Candy
Day 18 of Sara’s Old Tea! Part 4 of 6
Oh wow, the tea bag smells kind of like cinnamon candy.
Smells like that steeping in the cup too, though I can also pick out some hibiscus smell, mmm. I left the bag in the cup and waited for it to cool down.
I mainly taste hibiscus, with plenty of cinnamon at the end of the sip. It’s a nice combination.
Oops, it cooled down too much. So I added some ice, and mmm, spiced punch. I like it even better chilled.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Hibiscus
