I was wondering why I hadn’t written a note for this tea yet, and then it occurred to me – I didn’t want to write and rave about it for fear of it being bought out before I got more. Hahahahaha. So yes, I really enjoy this tea. Creamy strawberry/coconut/pastry flavours… it’s really quite good. I got my large pouch of it, and it’s long sold out by now, so… sorry everyone who didn’t get to try it.

Plunkybug

I’ve never seen a Lamington flavored tea before!

Kittenna

I still don’t know what a lamington is, but I sure like this tea!

Plunkybug

It’s something in Australia, I think…a pastry of sorts.

I drank this after a boxing workout and then again before going into work and trying to wake up. The strawberry was the strongest tastes, not sure about the cream yet but I love the mix of fruit with cream and coconut mixed with a black tea.
With that combination not much could go wrong in my mind, though I usually stray toward nutty and earthy teas rather than the fruits. Especially now that it’s winter time.

Flavors: Strawberry

From Sil! Eee!!! She sent me a box filled with the MOST DELIGHTFUL things. That increase my count by 32. Ahem.

Many of them are (thankfully) only one serving, so I’m going to drink as many as I can before I add them to my spreadsheet. Hahahaha. :D

This one had me a bit worried with all the coconut, but it’s actually really great! Mostly strawberry. Very little cream. And honestly I saw there’s chocolate of some sort in here but I can’t really taste it. I’m going to blame the excess of hot sauce I just put on my Singapore Noodles for that one…

I do like the strawberry, for sure. There’s another strawberry tea laid out on my table, and I’m excited to try that one. Probably tomorrow. :)

Sil

i told you i’d keep it nice!

OMGsrsly

Haha. Single servings = great. 32 teas = a month of drinking them down… :P

Sil

or more than 1 per day!

OMGsrsly

Yeah, only if I want to have one in my travel mug in the morning. Or I get up early enough to have a cup of tea before work.

OMGsrsly

Which. I get up early enough TYVM.

Since I am on a strawberry tea thing now apparently.

Now that my tea stash is getting way out of control, I’ve started gathering my smaller bits of tea together by category with the hope that I might be able to actually finish a packet or two and reduce the amount of space my obsession is all beginning to take up.

I need more caramel tea. Smooth creamy caramel tea: burnt, caramelized, dulce de leched, flanned, custarded, all the caramel teas.

I seem to have caramel and toffee, but it is all spiced and chaied. And that’s just not the thing.

This train of thought is not taking me to the reduce-my-tea-stash place. Anyway.

Anyway, so I was going through my small bits of black tea this morning and found myself again searching for a fruit-flavoured choice, as opposed to a spicy or nutty or toffee one.

The last times I have had this particular tea, I seem to recall that the strawberry aspect of it popped more. Or perhaps that was me and my wishful thinking.

I shook and shook and shook my sample bag and still no strawberries appeared. Or maybe they were in little bits in my leaf.

Nonetheless, this is a very satisfying tea. Probably especially so as I have had far too many Ceylon experiences lately and have been craving a tea with substance beyond the flavours. Liberteas has made such a brilliant choice in this black tea base. Every time I have it, I send a silent thank you and blessing into the tea cosmos.

Plenty of coconut, which comes through in both scent and flavour. Layered onto the coconut, there’s a bit of cream going on. A wee ephemeral strawberry hint at the very end of the sip.

Yes, a very satisfying cup. If there were just a bit more strawberry, lovely lovely strawberries….

Flavors: Coconut, Cream, Strawberry

I can sure use more caramel tea in my life too. Good call on that.

At least you’re sorting through your stash and have some sort of method in place, lest your cupboard would get even more out of hand.

Evol Ving Ness

The some sort of method is not in place. Yet. However, the idea has landed in my brain and small steps towards making this happen have begun, so yay! My tea fever just started in earnest February 2015, so now is the time to organize teas to use the older ones before disaster strikes. Hopefully, disaster has not struck yet.

LiberTEAS

Sweet Caramel O’Mine is the tea of the week this week – just sayin’

Fjellrev

Those baby steps are better than nothing! It’s great that you’re grabbing the harness now rather than later.

Evol Ving Ness

Grabbing the harness. I like that. The truer thing is that I am fondling the harness, though I hope that I will be developing a firmer grip in the coming days. For me, first, I have to plant the idea.

And yes, I have Sweet Caramel O’ Mine here on standby for the right moment. I have been a bit fixated on strawberry and if not strawberry, then at least red for the moment. My second fixation is on giving a once over to things that are already open, and preferably those which are already nearing their end either in age or in quantity.

The right moment is coming. I am never far from Caramel for long.

Fjellrev

It’s ok, the last couple months have been the best times to make purchases between all the awesome BF and Boxing Week sales. It’s not like you’re buying this much tea all year round.

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you. The not-buying-tea-savings-plan begins at midnight. or earlier if my cc rebells. :)

I’ve been meaning to review this tea FOREVER… Well not really forever, I only got my package of it a few weeks ago, but I’ve drunk it so much since then that it feels like it’s been forever!!

52 Tea’s blended this one up especially for me as part of the ‘you choose the blend’ reward for my kickstarter bid. I must admit, initially I was a little worried when i started emailing Anne and she mentioned she had no idea what a Lamington was but in the end I decided to trust in her superior blending taste buds and a quick tutorial from Wikipedia.

So for those still in the dark about this delectable treat, lamingtons are an Australian morning or afternoon tea treat that most people consume with a strong cuppa. Basically it’s a small individual sized square serve of sponge cake, covered in chocolate syrup, coconut flakes and if you’re really lucky, in the center is a layer of strawberry jam and cream. YUM!

So, on to the tea…. The dry leaf is full of coconut slivers, large dried strawberry pieces, and cocoa nibs and it seriously smells exactly like a jam and cream filled Lamington, which is super exciting for this homesick Aussie! Upon brewing as per the directions, the flavor is not quite as strong as the scent but I still get the definite taste profile of a Lamington!! I seriously recommend this with a splash of milk or even a dollop of cream if you’re feeling a little decadent… Give it a try… If you like strawberry, coconut, chocolate, cream and sponge cake you’ll love this!! It’s a decadent treat without any of the calories!!

Sil

This makes me anxious for my order to get here

LiberTEAS

I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed this! I have been curious!

Memily

Gimme this immediately!!!

Memily

Would be interesting to compare this to T2’s Lamington blend. I’m gonna guess it poops all over it.

Kittenna

Yum, yum, yum. This one is fabulous.

beelicious

its delicious!! :)
