From Citizen Tea

Famously known as the best Italian dessert around, and with good reason. Tiramisu is indulgent, with layers of cream, chocolate, and coffee. And while we would eat if every night if we could, the calorie count on one piece alone makes us feel too guilty. Inspired by our favourite cake and the need for a guilt-free alternative, we offer you a decadent herbal blend. A combination of cocoa nibs, coffee beans, and creamy vanilla, Tiramisu is the perfect way to enjoy all the delicious dessert flavours without the guilt.

Ingredients: Apple pieces, apple pieces white (apple, citric acid), yoghurt-crisp (sugar, yogurt made from skimmed milk, starch, sodium alginate), cocoa nibs, coffee beans, flavouring, vanilla pieces.

Brewing Instructions: 1 tsp per cup, 6-8 min. steep, 100C/212F

Trick or Treat!

Augh, so exhausted tonight. For the last several days I’ve had to wake early to be able to call a pharmaceutical company right when they turn their phones on before my shift at the library starts, just to be transferred around, disconnected, and get no answers. My lunch breaks have been more of the same, with lots of sitting on hold and pretty much starving myself. But today, finally, after first being denied by my insurance, I now have pre-auth approved insurance for Aimovig and have Aimovig approval for two free auto-injectors and co-pay assistance to follow, which should lower the $100 co-pay from my insurance to $5 a month. This is a brand-new treatment for chronic migraine, a once-a-month injectable antibody that bonds to the CGRP receptors in the brain to help with migraine prevention, and I’ve been following the studies on it since 2005. It just now got FDA approval this year. It has been such an exhausting battle, but I’m just so happy to finally get to try this stuff…

And now that I’ve bored everyone with personal details, tea! I got this sampler from a Citizen Tea order last January and just felt like trying it as my nightly herbal. It brews up a bright yellow, which makes me a little surprised that I’m actually getting a coffee liquor aroma from the brew. I’m also noticing some bittersweet, dark chocolate and tart green apple from the warm scent coming off the cup.

Oh! The aroma had me expecting something on the bittersweet side, but this tea is surprisingly sweet. It’s actually very caramelly, which I was not expecting at all! The base is making me think of a light caramel/toffee that has a sweet apple note to it, and the mid-sip pulls in some subtle hints of a lighter milk chocolate/cocoa flavor and coffee, but they are more subdued than the aroma lets on. The flavor that lingers on my tongue is more of a caramel/butterscotch flavor.

I wouldn’t say it reminds me in a major way of tiramisu, but I can see what they were going for, and even though subtle, the flavor notes are there. Love that slight coffee aroma from the cup every time I take a sip. And as a dessert tea, it is very tasty; I do tend to be generous with my leaf with chunky herbals like this, but the flavor here is very good, and is really hitting the spot as a sweet-tooth indulgement before bed. And there are just days where one really needs that. Today was definitely one of those days for me.

Flavors: Apple, Butterscotch, Caramel, Cocoa, Coffee, Sweet, Toffee

Glad you had some good luck! Hope it will help as migraines suck!!

I have grown pretty cynical over the years having tried everything from every prescription treatment to every homeopathic treatment to everything in-between and snake oil for good measure, but I’m going to remain hopeful this time. :-) It was a long battle this time but got there in the end! Thank you!

I’m sorry it was such an ordeal to get the medicine you need but so glad to hear your persistence has literally paid off. Hoping the new med works for you and increases your quality of life! Also, this tea sounds really good.

Good to hear of this breakthrough. It’s so difficult to have to fight for what you need to potentially heal/cope with chronic health issues. A friend is on this merry go round currently, waiting for approval forb
Botox injections for migraines.
, hoping that something will eventually work, or at least, somewhat.

Sipdown that was sitting in my cupboard for probably a year. I didn’t care for this at all. I find it sour instead of desserty. Also coffee and apples? Not sure how those two things can be expected to combine to mimic tiramisu.

I’m glad it’s gone now.

UGH I had a note all typed up and it disappeared on me. Not impressed :/

Anyhow. I love this tea. I WILL be ordering more. At some point.
It’s got the mouthfeel of David’s Tea former Banana Nut Bread tea. You know, before they ruined it by changing the formula. and the coffee in lieu of banana note is A-OK in my books!!
