Finished this one off earlier this week, as my morning/breakfast tea. I thought the stronger profile/caffeine level mixed with the fruity elements would be a nice start to the morning and I was right.
We had a wicked wind storm the night before I drank this one and the morning of. Like, I live across from a small park and the wind was so bad that one of the boughs/limbs on the tree in the center of the park snapped off. It sounded really scary/intense and it was totally unexpected so it freaked me the fuck out. It sounded like a HUGE crack of thunder, but there was no rain/water or anything…
Anyway, point is that while I sipped on this I also storm watched. That’s one of my favourite things to do: we have a huge living room window with a bench under it so I’ll sit on the bunch in the comfort of my house and watch nature do it’s amazing, beautiful and sometimes scary thing.
This was actually really delicious though! Very, very strong flavours/full bodied profile overall. It was really, really earthy from the pu’erh but that was easily matched by a really bright, sweet strawberry flavour that was like a mix of overripe strawberries, strawberry candy, and strawberry jams. Just like, strawberry to the core. It’s almost weird how well that sort of sweet, vibrant flavour compliments the deep, intense earthy flavour of the pu’erh. It worked, though! Like, really well. The mango was a lot more subtle in flavour; but I liked the sweetness of it as well. Flavour wise, it was like being pleasantly assaulted with strawberry/pu’erh and then just as that attack is starting to ease up the mango just runs up to you and… waves? Like, “Yes, hello I’m here too! Don’t forget about me!”. That’s it though; just the reminder that it’s there – no impact.
Still, really liked this one and the mixture of opposing flavours coming together in a complimentary way. It was a good morning option, for sure! I also feel like there’s LOTS of potential for this to be a really nice latte, too. Don’t know that I’d want it in a large quantity, but if I was already going to be ordering from TeaTaxi? Yeah, I’d totally add in another sample to revisit it.
A Christmas Night unlike any other. The expected orange and clove is no where to be found in this christmas blend. This is a black tea with ice cream bits and chocolate and strawberry pieces and it smells just like a strawberry milkshake.
I had a whole 25 gram sample to work with so I made this plain, as a latte, and as a smoothie. Though this tea was unique relative to the many Christmas teas on the market, different doesn’t necessarily mean better.

Thank you for the tea VariaTEA! I’ve been putting off trying because I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it; but I’ve been feeling especially stuffy/had a sore throat today so I thought it was a good day to give it a shot.
It reminds me really strongly of DAVIDsTEA’s Throat Rescue blend, with some of the peppery/spice elements of Pick Me Up, the sick tea that they did last year with the yerba mate base. It’s very fennel/licorice root heavy in flavour and normally I don’t know that I’d be really into that but it’s very soothing on my throat right now, and I appreciate that. Lots of spice and mint in the body of the profile; tons of peppermint and a mix of clove/cardamom and savory tulsi. The saffron peaks through in the finish; it’s warming and a very interesting spice component alongside that sweet licorice root profile.
I wouldn’t drink this on a regular basis – but for today and for being sick in general?
Totally works for me!
Thank you VariaTEA for sending this one my way! I was interested to try it for sure; anything with caramel typically catches my eye, and I’m not one to shy away from caffeine either!
I made this one hot, and then added a fair bit of milk to it as well. The flavour was really nice and smooth; obviously sweet caramel notes, but also the sweetness of like condensed milk which I’m sure was exaggerated by my addition of milk in the first place . The mate base was very roasty, which almost made it just a little coffee like, as well as toasty and nutty. It was a really nice compliment to the overall caramel sweetness.
This wasn’t really anything fancy, and I’ve definitely tried similar teas before too – but I enjoyed it a lot for what it was and I’m thankful I got to try it!
Love the name. Smells and taste good. It’s a winner for me. It’s very fruity and I can taste the apple flavor in the tea along with light hibiscus, berry and kiwi. I am having it with pizza as a midnight snack-it actually pairs well with chicken bbq pizza. I am trying to reduce my sugar intake and have replaced pop and fruit juices with flavored iced tea. It’s going pretty well so far! So many options to choose from and pairings to try.
Thanks VariaTea for this very strangely named tea. I decided to try it blindly, and these were my thoughts:
- Very buttery; dry leaf smells like movie theater butter in a bad way
- Steeped liquor is also very buttery, but in a more pleasant way
- Like a milk oolong??
- Both with the buttery/creamy element and because of the floral elements
- Of which there are many (floral elements)
- Has a soft fruity undertone; but it’s very mild
- Kind of raspberry(ish) I suppose?
I just looked it up for the first time and all I have to say is… MANGO!?
Yeah, definitely NOT mango. That doesn’t even remotely seem accurate. Even sipping on the last bit of the mug, now knowing that it’s supposed to taste like mango it still doesn’t taste like mango…
I don’t know; overall this wasn’t bad. It was weird though, for sure. I think regardless of whether it accurately conveys the fruit flavour it wants to, it’s just a little bit too buttery tasting for me to really get into it.
Thank you VariaTea for the sample! This one really had me curious; and I was really hoping I’d like it. Overall I just thought it was really plain, though. Not bad, totally drinkable but really underwhelming.
- Mostly very earthy Pu’erh
- With very subtle vanilla undertones to it
- Adding milk made it smoother, and a little more custardy
- And really thickened the mouthfeel as well
- However as “creme brulee” this was REALLY lacking
I added all the teas from the package CuppaGeek sent me and I am back to 315 teas (well 314 now). Not too bad since it seemed like there was a lot more teas in the envelope. Instead it seems like there was larger quantities of fewer teas.
Cherry punch is a pretty accurate description. The coco part is okay though I think I could do without it since it is a touch lotiony and off. Luckily it is fleeting and only pops up now and again but it does distract from the cherry punch/kool aid type flavor.
