Newly Added to D’s Teas – Our Permanent Collection!

Because the love for this tea is so strong, we stuck closely to the original recipe.

One difference is that we’re utilizing different teas in our black tea base. I think you’ll notice the difference and I’m confident you’ll feel this was a change for the better! We’ve made a really yummy thing even better!

The Large Size is 50g.

Ingredients: Organic Black Teas, organic marigold petals and all-natural, organic flavors

Here’s Frank’s original description:

I’m tempted to start this post with, “You’re not going to believe what we did this week!” But we’ve created enough unique, one-of-a-kind blends, that I imagine our unique-ness is getting rather ho-hum.

But seriously? Who else would bring you a PANCAKE BREAKFAST tea? With the essence of hot, buttery, maple-syruped pancakes infused through our premium black teas (a bit heavier on the breakfast teas this week). Who else, really?

Our new Tea of the Week for the week of April 4th, 2011

Mmmmmmm pancakey goodness. I don’t know why I waited so long to order this one. I guess I was just not worried since it was a permanent blend so I just kept glossing over it when I went to the site. Man that was stupid! I love this tea. I knew I would love it after I had the gooey butter cake black tea. Frank does the buttery/pastry like flavor the best! I wish this had a little more maple but otherwise it is delicious. Yum sipdown!

REALLY love this one! Perfectly balanced flavors, nothing too strong. All the maple-buttery goodness is so cozy and great to wake up to.

I feel bad for not having posted about this sooner. I’ve been smitten with this tea since I placed my order back in …April? I was incredibly fortunate in that my sister had ordered some as well and decided it wasn’t for her. I’ve been on a not-so-sweet tea kick the last couple of months involving some unflavored assam and ceylon, but this has still been making my drink hard with a vengeance list despite it’s clear inclination toward being a sweeter tea. I distinctly pick up more of the the “buttery” notes than the maple, though while the maple somewhat tries to sneak away in flavor, it’s present and accounted for in the fragrance. Ooh the fragrance! The fragrance is wonderful. It’s a Sunday morning breakfast over newspapers with orange juice and the works. Slightly malty, slightly savory and slightly sweet, it’s been great for when I can’t make up my mind and not burning out on something stronger while pulling all-nighters for school.

I simply adore this tea. I’m from The Pancake Hub of the Universe (not kidding – so of course, I had to make this purchase as soon as I saw it online.

It is a perfect morning tea. It’s strong but not overwhelming and the taste surpasses the aroma, which is a bit mapeley for my taste. The tea tastes like pancakes. I don’t know how else to explain it but it is buttery and velvety and worthy of hearty breakfast meal, although I generally am just enjoying mine solo.

Reading the description of this tea, it sounded like quite the perfect breakfast tea, I immediately went and bought a pouch. Looking at the reviews the past week or so, I was really excited to find it in the mail, let’s just say i had some high expectations for this one.

Opening the bag.. to be honest, it didn’t smell all that great, very odd smell but whatever, its how it tastes that matters! Sipping it, I do get a lot of buttery taste and it mainly tastes like a black tea. Now about that pancake thing, that’s when things go downhill. I don’t know how many of you have ever had soy milk before, but really that’s what I’m getting here. Black tea? Check. Buttery flavour? Check. Pancake? errr. Soybeans? Check. That’s what I’m getting as aftertaste too, so i don’t know maybe i did something wrong..

Anyways, I think I will sweeten this one with honey/maple syrup next time and give it another go.

This does smell very pancake-ey and almost liquor-like when opening up the package. I’m not exactly sure what the marigold does for taste, but it gives the blend a nice yellow highlight. Upon first sip, I noticed the medium sweetness after which a mellow buttery aftertaste came around. I added a splash of cream, and o man… this stuff is an awesome pick for morning time.

I think my palette must not be very refined, because lately all the sweet-flavored black teas I’ve had have tasted the same. This tastes like black tea with a sweet syrupy flavor (I added just a pinch of sugar; I’ve learned from the others that a full tsp makes it too syrupy sweet). This tea is not bad, but it doesn’t distinguish itself from others I’ve had recently.

(Sample from silentrequiem. Thanks!)

I had high hopes for this one, and they were met! With a little bit of sugar and milk, this tea is just so unbelievably smooth. The aroma is dead-on for pancakes with maple syrup, but there’s no overpowering sweetness in the taste. I really, really wish I knew how this was made!

I’ve tried this tea quite a few times now and can’t believe that I’ve forgotten to write a tasting note!

The tea smells very sweet and syrupy, both dry and after steeping. Unfortunately, it leaves a chalky and dry feeling in my mouth and is a bit too sweet for my liking. I discovered that, for me, this tea is best as a latte. I add 4-8 ounces of hot milk and it is heaven in a cup. Especially now that the weather is turning cooler it is a great treat morning, day or night! I can taste a buttery smooth pancake with a syrup aftertaste. Not too sweet and no longer chalky.

I love love love this tea. I usually add a little half-and-half and a lump of sugar to enhance the buttery flavor and the sweetness. I tried adding maple/agave syrup but I didn’t think that worked very well – I would like to try some maple sugar and see it that kicks up the maple flavor.
