I really don’t get caramel from this. The rooibos doesn’t play that well with the black tea, so it tastes sort of boring. I get a tang of clove, and other than that, it’s mostly rooibos, maybe a slightly desserty flavoring. It’s better cool, but it’s not a great tea.

I hadn’t heard of this brand before, but it was fun to try something new from the tea box. Wow, this really tastes like cheesecake! I don’t get any fruit, and I taste a bit of dessertiness that could sort of be interpreted as caramel. But the cheesecake flavor is so strong and clear. The resteep was all cheesecake too!

Just looked at the company’s site out of curiosity and they have some cute advent calendars.

Oooo I’m somewhat enticed! I just wish there were pictures so I could recognize the teas I’ve already tried from other companies better!

Same I wish they had an easier online shop format. Also, have a monthly tea subscription as well.

Additional notes: I’m enjoying this good one from a long ago teabox. I have so many little amounts of teas everywhere! It’s amazing I can keep track of them.

I think I mentioned Jonathan Wilson’s music here before, and he has a new one out. All four of his albums are solid. And here is a lovely calming song I forgot about for a while: Sin Fang – Down:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_2tm6rLihQ&list=OLAK5uy_kGZlzT-mmgXLXYJzk_VWRGbDv4_m-sgoU&index=9
Hope you’re all doing okay out there.

Another musician like Jonathan Wilson a bit is Gaz Coombes. I still love his album ’World’s Strongest Man’ from a couple years ago.

Or maybe I just discovered them around the same time… so maybe not similar.

I’ve met the Tea Mistress, though I can’t recall her name at the moment. She organized several tea festivals in Houston a few years back. She also did a tea meetup group, though I’m not sure that’s active any more. There was a fun gongfu session at a tea place in Houston China town, I think of the group only she and I had done gongfu before. I’ve never been to her tea shop, though I suppose I should stop by the next time I’m in Houston.

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #9
Teas like this are why I love teaboxes! It’s a little tea company not on Steepster yet but this blend is wonderful. A nice hot comforting cup of no-caff tulsi chai while watching a harrowing Sherlock episode a couple days ago (second steep was last night — just posting this tasting note now.) I love tulsi and it isn’t overpowering here with the lovely spices in the mix. The tulsi has a mild vegetal flavor while maintaining some sweetness. I think even people who don’t usually like tulsi might like this one. There is also vanilla…not sure if I can tell. The website for this company doesn’t really list their teas since they’re seasonal… it says to e-mail them about it. Thanks to whomever included this one in the box! Just a perfect tasty cup of tea.
Steep #1 // 1 3/4 teaspoons for a full mug// couple minutes after boiling // 4 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 5+ minute steep
