Chocolate Malt Dream Black Tea, Tea of the Week for August 28, 2023!
Our Tea of the Week for August 28 is:
Chocolate Malt Dream Black Tea – This tea is so good. So very rich and malty! Delightfully chocolate-y with notes of vanilla – the flavor is reminiscent of my favorite chocolate malt from my favorite ice cream parlor!
Our Tea of the Week for August 21 is:
Orange Tabby Soda Green Rooibos – This is the first tea created as part of the “Create-a-Tea” campaign as part of my fundraising event. The contributor wanted a green rooibos blend that is similar to my Crisp Cranberry Soda green rooibos – but instead of Cranberry, she wanted orange.
So this is the tea I created for her! It’s really tasty – it has the lemon-lime soda base blended with orange! Sweet & juicy!
Our Tea of the Week for August 14 is:
Mango Lemonade Green Tea – So refreshing! This is a tasty blend of Young Hyson green tea, mangos, lemons & lemongrass. It’s good served hot – but even better cold-brewed overnight & served iced!
Our Tea of the Week for August 7 is:
Wild Marshmallow Black Tea – This tea is one of my favorite teas that I’ve ever created. Marshmallow is one of my favorite flavors & a homemade marshmallow is one of my favorite things ever.
So – this tea, OH MY Goodness! I nailed marshmallow flavor. The base is a very special Wild Arbor Assamica – not one that I keep in stock often – which is to say, this tea won’t be around long. Grab some while you can.
And of course:
Our Featured Reblend for July is/was:
Pink Anise Black Tea – Yes, I brought this one back already because my s/o requested it to be reblended (it’s his favorite tea!) & since I had the ingredients in stock to reblend it, I figured I’d go ahead and grant his request.
THANK YOU for your support!
I feel a bit like a mind reader with the Blood Orange Creamsicle blend, haha!
The new site looks great though, and I’m excited for this year’s 12 Days selection! :)
That’s not all – though – because you also mentioned on a totally different post from a different company about how you didn’t like the word “flan” – and our featured reblend for August … contains that word in the name in the tea. (I’ll be announcing the tea on Monday but I’m sure that totally gave it away anyway.)
Thanks about the comments on the new website. I spent a lot of hours on it – but I’m happy with it. It just – looks better. Maybe it’s just because I looked at the same website for 6 years but the other one felt so old fashioned and clunky.
I’m also very excited to see these updates again. Loving the new site, it looks great!
I’m so sad I missed the 12 Teas box…no idea how I managed that. I filled out the form, so hoping there is an extra I can purchase! :)
Ugh I already have a subscription and advent and placed 2 orders last weekend and now I see the two Nov teas, so far? Will try to resist another order
AH as I was reading your description for ‘Sweet Zhang’, I was thinking of ‘Black Silk Chocolate Milk’ and then I read further and you mention it tasting like chocolate milk! Could this base work for a reblend of Black Silk Chocolate Milk?
To be honest, I’m not sure. The Qu Hao tea has a different profile than the Gu Zhang.
@anne – sorry for the delay in response. just wanted to buy some and you only had 1 left lol.
@Sil – there is more in stock. But, you should hurry and get it if you want some because it’s going quickly and I’m not – at this time – planning on reblending immediately.
I just brewed up Caramel Apple v2 today (before seeing this post). I also apparently tried the original (blended only by Frank, correct?) but have no recollection of the flavour. I like the base of v2 so hopefully v3 stands up to it!! Excited to try it when my next box ships! :D
Yes, the original batch was crafted by Frank. He utilized the Fujian Oolong (this v.3 utilizes the Fujian Oolong as well) I don’t think he used cinnamon in the tea though, but I like the cinnamon in there. I guess I just feel like apples and cinnamon belong together.
I agree! I think I strongly associate the two. I see that v2 was a baked oolong; off the top of my head fujian oolong is meaning nothing to me. I really ought to get my oolong flavour profile straight one day!
@Kittenna: I enjoy both bases. I think the baked Oolong has more of a roasted flavor that gives the caramel apple notes more of a “baked apple” flavor – whereas with this Fujian Oolong, I get more of a straightforward caramel apple flavor – like dipping apples into caramel sauce (with a wee bit of cinnamon added to the caramel.)
