Tea of the Week for October 30, 2023/Featured Reblend for October: Sweet Potato Black Tea!
Greetings, Tea Lovers!
Our Featured Reblend for October/Tea of the Week for October 30 is:
Sweet Potato Black Tea – I originally blended this one back in 2019. At the time, I didn’t foresee me ever reblending it again, as the base of the tea is one that I didn’t think I’d get in stock again. However, my vendor did happen to get more of the base tea for this blend, so I decided to go ahead & order some so I could reblend it & . . . here it is!
Our Tea of the Week for October 23, 2023 is:
Blackberry Apple Rooibos with Chamomile – A tasty & relaxing cuppa of rooibos, chamomile, blackberry & apple! Sweet, fruity & comforting!
Our Tea of the Week for October 16, 2023 is:
Cake Batter Chai (Black Tea) – a blend of Assam black teas & honeybush combined with chai spices (the usual suspects here: Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamom, Cloves and Black Pepper) & vanilla bean plus some essence magic to create a cake batter-y chai blend – complete with cute & colorful sprinkles (don’t worry, their vegan & gluten-free!)
Our Tea of the Week for October 9, 2023 is:
Peach Praline Green Tea – A blend of green teas (Chun Mee & Gunpowder) with peaches, praline essence (it’s nut free!) & a touch of flaked sea salt. So tasty!
Our Tea of the Week for October 2, 2023 is:
Pumpkin Bread Black Tea This tea is amazing. I think it’s my favorite pumpkin tea I’ve ever crafted! Yeah, it’s that good! There are very, very limited quantities of this tea remaining, so if it interests you – you should grab some now!
Our Tea of the Week for September 18, 2023 is:
Midnight Feast – this is a blend I crafted as a “create-a-blend” – one of my customers wanted a tea similar to our pancake breakfast but as a caffeine free option. They wanted it to be a maple-forward, gently spiced, bready tea with notes of vanilla – so I suggested a french toast-y blend. Here it is! A blend of honeybush, rooibos, maple essence plus maple candy (organic, gluten-free & vegan), cinnamon, nutmeg & vanilla. It’s like comfort food, in tea form!
AND Pancake Breakfast Tea & Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha are back in stock!
THANK YOU for your support!
I feel a bit like a mind reader with the Blood Orange Creamsicle blend, haha!
The new site looks great though, and I’m excited for this year’s 12 Days selection! :)
That’s not all – though – because you also mentioned on a totally different post from a different company about how you didn’t like the word “flan” – and our featured reblend for August … contains that word in the name in the tea. (I’ll be announcing the tea on Monday but I’m sure that totally gave it away anyway.)
Thanks about the comments on the new website. I spent a lot of hours on it – but I’m happy with it. It just – looks better. Maybe it’s just because I looked at the same website for 6 years but the other one felt so old fashioned and clunky.
Yay I’m glad these updates are back!
yay for the new site and updates!
I’m also very excited to see these updates again. Loving the new site, it looks great!
I’m so sad I missed the 12 Teas box…no idea how I managed that. I filled out the form, so hoping there is an extra I can purchase! :)
Amanda – I can’t make any promises just yet – but I suspect there will be enough for a box for you. I will contact you when I know more. In the meantime, thank you for filling out the form!
Thanks for the kind comments!
PS: The box went very quickly this year!
Ugh I already have a subscription and advent and placed 2 orders last weekend and now I see the two Nov teas, so far? Will try to resist another order
I missed this thread! Following for exciting updates now :D
AH as I was reading your description for ‘Sweet Zhang’, I was thinking of ‘Black Silk Chocolate Milk’ and then I read further and you mention it tasting like chocolate milk! Could this base work for a reblend of Black Silk Chocolate Milk?
To be honest, I’m not sure. The Qu Hao tea has a different profile than the Gu Zhang.
@anne – sorry for the delay in response. just wanted to buy some and you only had 1 left lol.
@Sil – there is more in stock. But, you should hurry and get it if you want some because it’s going quickly and I’m not – at this time – planning on reblending immediately.
YAY for a banana tea joining D’s Teas!
I just brewed up Caramel Apple v2 today (before seeing this post). I also apparently tried the original (blended only by Frank, correct?) but have no recollection of the flavour. I like the base of v2 so hopefully v3 stands up to it!! Excited to try it when my next box ships! :D
Yes, the original batch was crafted by Frank. He utilized the Fujian Oolong (this v.3 utilizes the Fujian Oolong as well) I don’t think he used cinnamon in the tea though, but I like the cinnamon in there. I guess I just feel like apples and cinnamon belong together.
I agree! I think I strongly associate the two. I see that v2 was a baked oolong; off the top of my head fujian oolong is meaning nothing to me. I really ought to get my oolong flavour profile straight one day!
@Kittenna: I enjoy both bases. I think the baked Oolong has more of a roasted flavor that gives the caramel apple notes more of a “baked apple” flavor – whereas with this Fujian Oolong, I get more of a straightforward caramel apple flavor – like dipping apples into caramel sauce (with a wee bit of cinnamon added to the caramel.)
