Many, many thanks to VariaTea for sending this to me… ages ago!

I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get around to; all my ziploc samples are in a different box/part of my cupboard and because of that they so frequently get forgotten about. I should really do something about that!

Anyway, my thoughts!

- A little bitter/astringent
- I get both the cherry and vanilla though!
- Probably would have assumed this was a sort of wonky Monk’s Blend though…
- Had I not read the ingredients, anyway
- Hmmm, maybe a little cough syrup-y as it cools down though?

Yeah; bottom line is that this one smells really good but when it comes down to taste it leaves me a little unimpressed. I don’t dislike it though, and I think with some tweaking it might be redeemable. My first thought is that it could be a sweeter iced tea, and if it works well with milk that might take the edge of some of that astringency/bitterness?

I’ll have to see what I end up doing, though.

VariaTEA

Yeah, I also was disappointed by this one especially when you take into consideration that it’s a specialty blend for one of the most popular ice cream shops in the city. It just fell flat. I hoped you’d have more luck.

Hmm. This is ok. Woke up this morning in an adventurous frame of mind. Usually, I want my first tea of the day to be a sure thing, something truly worth waking up for. Today I was prepared to take a risk.

It’s raining here and the sky is muddled. As it turns out, the flavours with this black tea base are muddled too. Both the cherry and vanilla are bits of fly by, faint whispers of each on the tail end of the sip. I am enjoying this cup. That said, I think I would enjoy this cup far more had I not had greater expectations of the flavours that would be present. For me, this tea needs more experimentation.

Thank you, VariaTEA, for adding this to the box.

yeah…it’s an indoor rainy eta drinking sort of day for me up here.

Evol Ving Ness

Yes, I have quite a list of things to do, but most can be accomplished with a mug of tea in hand or in my travel mug close by. The best kind of days.

Sil

VariaTEA

Go Sil, go!

Evol Ving Ness

Another sample from VariaTEA. this one is a miss for me. It’s not a bad tasting tea, it’ s just not sure of what it wants to be. All i got from this one for the most part was “sweet”

VariaTEA

This is actually a good description of this tea tbh.

I ended up waking up very early this morning so I had time to brew a teapop and between the cherry, vanilla, and grenadine, I thought this would be awesome. Turns out I was wrong. It’s not bad but it is not great. I’m find the flavors, though present, are really flat. I get notes of vanilla sweetness and a cherry/grenadine mix (think maraschino cherries) is probably the most prominent flavor and yet these flavors should be bright and sweet and dessert-like but they just aren’t. It is almost as if there is flavor deterioration but since this is stored properly and purchased fairly recently that should not be the case. I will continue to explore though and hopefully find a way to coax out the flavors.

Evol Ving Ness

Too bad. It showed such promise.

VariaTEA

My thoughts exactly. I have a lot left though so I’ll just have to change the steeping parameters and see what happens

Evol Ving Ness

Do you have any Monk’s Blend handy, the one with grenadine? That might make a good mix for a teapop.
