Arby Advent Day 14
The orange in this is so bright and tasty. The spices are warming underneath, with clove being the most obvious flavor. There’s a tiny bit of bitterness from the peel of the orange, but it’s a relatively well-balanced blend. I’ve enjoyed this one both warm and cold. The spices and fruit combine so well – I’m a fan!
Strong milk, warm butter and butterscotch aroma, solid ooolong notes in the background.
Subdued bitterness, strong milky aromas, subtle buttery aftertaste.
Certainly unusual, but really good.
Flavors: Butter, Butterscotch, Earth, Milk

So, I did buy couple of christmas teas. Still I don’t actually know how orange tea has anything to do with christmas, but I don’t care since this is pretty good orange tea despite christmas tea status. It smells like orange candy and tastes nicely tangy and sour just how I like my citrus teas. I have heard before that Demmers Teehaus makes good tea and I had to see if it’s true or not, it is.
Flavors: Orange, Sour, Tangy
I was interested in rooibos earl grey last year, at the Thé-o-dor shop, while smelling all of their sublime rooibos blends. With limited luggage space, I ended up restocking a few other favorite blends, thinking this simpler idea might be easier to find, and test, from other blenders. And did find this one. It was a bit cheaper, a reasonable around 5 euros per 100 grams. And that kind of shows – the rooibos is not as smooth as from some other brands, the bergamot is a bit too-much. It still makes for a very nice cup of tea, if I am careful to not brew it too hot (bergamot goes bitter) nor too weak. It´s just perfect for a late afternoon cup of tea, when I am already weary of too much caffeine but want something more tea-like than a mere tisane.
A little while ago Anna sent me a sample of Lupicia´s Jardin Sauvage – a Jekyll and Hyde tea for me. I loathed it when brewed hot and absolutely loved it when I cold steeped it overnight. It did wake me to the possibilities of cold brewed flavoured green rooibos, which is such an awesome concept for me in the summertime.
I was reminded of that Lupicia tea when I chanced upon this green rooibos with peach. Blender is another of those kind of generic german (austrian in this case, i believe) blenders – you know, not expensive teas, lots of flavoured teas, a certain propensity for adding sunflower petals, dried carrot or pineapple or grapefruit rind to unlikely teas. This one just has the sunflower petals and it´s pretty much what you would expect – not as awesome, or subtle or full ot interesting secondary flavours as the Lupicia. But it is nice, and it is much much cheaper than the Lupicia, a definite plus particularly for a iced tea. Flavour is mostly artificial, but not too cloying and it´s kind of one of those correct does-what-it-says-on-the-label teas. No surprises or hidden depths, but it does make very nice, and very lazy, iced tea – put some tea in a bottle, pour water and put in dridge, strain whenever you want it, sweeten if you want. I suspect the 100 grams I got will not make it to autumn.
Coziness in a cup for a chilly night.
I made this up last night but I also had McDonalds for dinner and the Maccas made me feel gross, so this didn’t get drunk.
But then I did the trashy thing of microwaving the cold cup tonight and now it’s perfect.
0.6°C. Just waiting for that electric blanket to warm up so I can keep watching Orange is the New Black but from the comfort of my warm bed.
I got sent this as a gift from my beautiful wonderful Loops in Austria, after she came to visit me, because she is selfless and so thoughtful. So it’s already very special to me, before I’ve even tried it.
Tonight I finally did try it though! It’s the start of the proper descent into winter lately, and tonight I rode home in quite biting drizzle and wanted something warm and delicious. This was calling.
I’ve been having a good huff of it once a month and it smells like a delicious pile of glühwein spices. Well, tonight I can confirm that it also tastes like glühwein, without the wine. Yum. So cosy and wintry and I wonder if you could actually make glühwein with it!? Maybe I’ll find out in a few weeks, hmm…
I haven’t really enjoyed darjeelings for the last couple of years. I have always participated in First Flush -tastings whenever possible, I felt that DJs are supposed to be tasted every spring. It was my duty, but not a particular pleasure.
I haven’t tasted anything from Teesta Valley specifically, so I am comparing this to my general memories of Darjeeling FF2010.
Dry leaves were especially green, I recall last year’s leaves were darker. This is also reflected in taste, this tea was really light. Taste sort of flows through me, it is hard to get hold of anything but a sweet, somewhat floral aftertaste. I find this taste seducing, teasing, but pleasant. Maybe this year I enjoy Darjeelings!
Aftertaste hit pretty quickly, and it is sort of honeylike, floral berrythingy.
There aren’t any elements I commonly associate with black teas, and that I like. It may be my light brewing, I used few leaves in a low temperature. I tried later with more leaves and hotter water, and I think the tea lost its balance with higher temperature.
Overall a really nice tea to have.
I made a nice little pot of this today but then was immediately called into a meeting and didn’t get a chance to try it until several hours later, when it had gone quite cold. I’ll hold off rating until I get a chance to taste it properly, but I do think it will be a good one. It’s got some jasmine in there too, so I’m hoping the two aromas/flavors will play nicely together.
I have to say, I’m not really tasting the blackcurrant.
There’s a small hint of it in there, somewhere. At least the aroma is full and very blackcurrant-y. I’m definitely tasting the tea over whatever flavoring is supposed to be here. Perhaps I steeped it for too long – 2-4 was the recommended. I did 3. Perhaps I steeped too little.
It’s still a pretty nice tea! A while after taking a sip, you start to taste the blackcurrant. I just wish it was present in the sip itself.
