(Preface to be deleted later). I participated in this year’s Secret Pumpkin and Beorhthraefn sent me 22 samples. Some I won’t review because traveling in baggies hurts some teas.

Steeped three times: 3 minutes, 5, 8.

Taken without milk or sugar. This mostly smelled and tasted malty, although there were dark fruit notes in the third infusion. Ordinary, every day cup of Assam.

Tea, the final frontier! These are the voyages of the Starship Teakettle.

So, I am back home now. After a week of drinking coffee, it’s nice to have tea again. This smells like malt and cocoa. There is a nice malty flavour as well. Watching the very first Star Trek- TNG episode. Q is pretty amusing.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt

Not My Cup O’ Tea TTB

I was so excited to find some new-to-me Butiki teas in this TTB! This one makes a great breakfast tea: strong and malty with a rich, chocolatey flavor. Also good for multiple re-steeps, which makes me really happy since I won’t be able to re-purchase.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt

Preparation

Hmm, tried this for I guess the first time last night, and wasn’t a big fan. A bit astringent, and not flavourful/chocolatey enough. The second infusion, which I drank tonight, was a bit better, so it’s entirely possible that the amazing Hello Sweetie just made this one pale in comparison. I’ll reserve a rating until I try it again.

It’s weird that there aren’t many reviews for this. I really enjoy it as a breakfast tea with milk.

Yesterday afternoon at work, I had a cup at around 3pm. I had a head ache and I was starving but I’m doing that stupid “be extra healthy for the new year” thing which means I have to monitor what I eat.

It helped fill me up a bit, and warmed me up. It’s malty and bold and I was reminded again why I like it so much.

And why compared to teas like this, the Davidstea Assam Banaspaty pales in comparison. (I admit I didn’t bother looking into which regions they come from or if they should even be compared. I’m just going by the word “Assam”)

What are you using to monitor what you eat with? It’s good to do that, but it’s also not necessarily good to be headachy and feeling like you’re starving. Things that can help with that – make sure you’re getting enough water (I count tea towards my water. My dietitian is a-ok with that), make sure you’re getting enough fat and protein (they are the ones that stick with you longer), make sure you’re getting enough carbs (that’s the quick energy). The first two are more important. Another one is is if you are also adding exercise in, that you’re getting enough food to make up for that.

(Sorry if I’m coming across as preachy, but it’s something I really care about.)

I’m on my fitness pal, and I got a fitbit for Christmas which I’m using to monitor my food, and exercise.

I’m definitely eating lots of protein and fat, honestly for the last month or two I’ve been eating lots of crap – chocolates and Christmas baking galore – so I think at this point I’m just crashing.

Also I don’t regularly get headaches or anything, that would be worrisome :)

I’m a part of MFP too and pretty much stopped once I went to AB for a while to help my mom with things back in October. Still haven’t gotten back to “dieting” between that and now holiday food madness in December, so I know what you mean. Once I go back after such a long period of eating crap/irresponsibly, I know I’ll probably get the same symptoms.

Which Fitbit did you get?

Plunkybug

Yes, which fitbit? I’ve thought about one off and on. I use Striiv to monitor my steps. but that only works when I have my phone on my. I definitely feel the effects of the holidays too…I can’t get my boots zipped up quite as easily now, and feel like I have a “winter baby” if you know what I mean.

My cupboard exploded yesterday, as i knew it would…and there’s more on the way. Back up to 162 with about 30? on the way haha. I opted to pull this one out earlier because i don’t want to try my new teas as i wasn’t sure if my tastebuds were having issues and i know this one is fairly safe as far as that goes. A lovely cup this morning in between sleeps :)

Kittenna

I think I bought this and haven’t yet tried it. Bad.

I decided to attempt to not have my ice coffee, or any coffee. Right now I can’t remember why. Rather than weaning, I went cold turkey today and now I have a splitting headache. This tea seemed like a good choice.

Black teas are, more often than not, comfort in a cup for me. This one is deep and dark and perfectly Assam-y. I’m glad I picked up a bunch. When my head stops pounding, I may write an actual tasting note.

caile

Hope the tea helps your headache!

Sil

hey! you! answer my FB question :P haha sorry you aren’t dealing well with no coffee :)
