drank Almond Cream by Queen Mary
757 tasting notes

Purchased some of this and made my first cup! It is definitely not a 3 minute tea though, probably closer to 5 minutes for my desired strength of flavour. This cup was a 3 minute cup and not quite as strong as I remember it being, but still tasty. I will enjoy the canister I got of it, I think.

This tea is much much better when steeped just 4 minutes and not…..however long it was last time. I think I’ll even try 3 next time. The black tea still tastes very ‘dark’ to me here. Not really finding any other words than that. Not quite bitter but i did add some additional sweetener and milk as the package recommended. Quite tasty and I’ve been sharing with a friend at work. This is good but I’ll probably not buy it again.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

Made today. Waaaaaaaaaay oversteeped so I’ll try again tomorrow. not rating since I’m pretty sure the bitterness is from the oversteeping.

Had some of this last night during my stitch and bitch with a couple of friends. Not much stitching got done but the bitching was very productive. I can probably get a second steep tonight before bed assuming the leaves aren’t molding already. This is still delicious.

Sounds like a win all round.

Been a while since I had this but I random number generated (kinda, I asked a friend for a number) and this came up so I made some. Still tasty even though it’s quite old at this point. I don’t like a lot of rooibos teas but this one just hits the spot.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

drank Creme Brulee by Tea Queens
757 tasting notes

I assume this is the same creme brulee black tea that can be purchased at said Queen Mary Tea House in Seattle because that’s where I got it. My mother got some when we had afternoon tea (I had the Almond tea which is also great) and I tried some of hers and had to buy some.

This particular cup is not as great as I remember, mostly probably because I oversteeped it by I don’t even know how long because I was brushing one of the cats and it is shedding season so that took longer than expected so it’s more burnt than caramel this cup but I have an entire canister and I intend to enjoy the crap out of it.

Sounds delicious!!

I feel a group buy coming on…I would love some of this (but can’t commit to a full bag/tin). They have a lot of great flavoured teas on their website.

Apparently I’ve had this before? At any rate, based on the suggestions of Steepsterites on the discussion board about coconut tea, I bought 100g of this and I’m glad I did. I had some at work on Wednesday and it was delicious. I’ll be happy to drink down this bag (and probably fast because, you know, coconut).

I can also only assume certain things about this tea because the bag I got, purchased online, has everything only in french. As does the other tea I bought, which I vaguely remember being maple tea and am going to have to send through a translator to be sure.

Gotta love the province of Quebec language laws. :)

Sipdown! This was better than I remember it being so I’m going to bump the rating. I don’t know why it has gotten better with extreme age but I like it a whole lot more than my current rating of 56 would suggest. It’s not my favourite thing but I will miss it if only because quince reminds me of my grandmother (RIP) and that’s always a wonderful memory.

Apparently this was already saved to my wishlist but I got it as a sample with my most recent order and man, I hadn’t remembered how delicious it is. I got 2 steeps out of it and wow. I don’t usually wow on a rooibos blend but this one is so very very well done.

drank Mindful Morning by Lia Leaf

I drank this tea a week ago so I don’t remember much except it was exceptionally floral, as one might expect and had a bit of a weird aftertaste that I just couldn’t get over.
