From August Uncommon Tea

Are you ready for a voyage in flavor? This tea delivers. Upon brewing, a warm rush of heady rose fills the air. The floral aroma next gives way to caramel nuttiness and apple. In the finish there is a hint of vanilla and mint. This is a deep, multilayered fruit and nut rooibos tea. A splash of milk tones down the mint and brings out the sweet rose and nut notes. Each sip suggests a different flavor and aroma every time. Like a first crush, it is as pleasant and alluring as it is fleeting.

A tea for lovers of almonds and roses.

Oh boy this rose flavor is extremely strong. And it’s the weird, sour type of rose. I also taste a little nuttiness and maybe a little saltiness, but nothing can overpower that rose. Adding milk helps a little, so it’s drinkable, but it’s not my sort of thing.

This tea is an odd one so I’ve been putting off writing a note for it but might as well try to describe it. There is a lot going on in this one. I drank this without any milk or sweetener. This tea seems Turkish inspired to me with the combo (pistachio rose, mint, and apple) The apple is tangy and prominent/ as well as the rose hips.
It’s not something I personally would repurchase necessarily (I have two bags of it that I was gifted) I just don’t think it’s a flavor combo I would reach for but I do see how the ingredients fit together. August Uncommon is one of my favorite tea companies because they offer some really unique blends.

Having a pot of this with the housemate and a side of almond milk rice pudding with cardamom and rose that I made a few nights ago.

Housemate says the dry ingredients smells like a mix of Juicy Fruit gum with peppermint gum. I think it smells like vanilla-peppermint cream with pistachios and rose. The rosehips give the brew an appropriate color for the name. The tea smells fruity with apples and something else I can’t parse…, creamy nougat studded with pistachios and almonds and peppermint. The taste is like a mixture of herbal tea on the sip followed quickly by a very prominent vanilla-honey-caramel nougat flavor, an intense nuttiness of (I can’t shake it!) what smells like rubbery Barbie doll legs, a hint of red rooibos. It finishes mineral and lightly drying along with tangy rosehips. Lingering perfume of sweet apple, bittersweet rose and vanilla-honey nougat, some clean peppermint cooling but overall body warming. Housemate says it tastes kinda marshmallowy like those orange circus candy peanuts.

This tea is really very strange.

Barbie legs and circus peanuts… Well at least it’s not boring! :P

derk

It’s pretty dang good! Between the circus peanuts (not at all my impression) and Barbie legs, this tea screams 1980s. I really can’t get over that association.

Someone gifted me two bags of this tea and I had a hard time pinning down the flavor as well! August Uncommon has some really unique tea blends for sure. The Apple and the Mint in it make me think of DT’s Midsummer Nights Dream though they aren’t that similar.

White Antlers

derk It’s a very gloomy morning here, probably going to rain. This tea note made my day. Do Barbie legs smell differently than doll heads? (Doll heads is a note descriptor often used in perfume reviews…)

Mastress Alita

Circus Peanuts is my all-time most hated candy. Bleeeeech.

gmathis

Send the extra marshmallow peanuts my way!

derk

Lexie Aleah, did you enjoy this tea? I’ve never had Midsummer Nights Dream. Heartbreaker is a very unique blend and I have no comparison to any other tea.

I remember you hate those peanuts, Mastress Alita, because I hate them, too. I did not get an impression of that vile candy at all.

Lexie Aleah

I liked it but I don’t tend to reach for apple teas with the exception of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from DT that one has gooseberries in it as well though which is fun! That one is one of my absolute favorite herbal teas. Heartbreaker I think had a little too much going on for me.

derk

You’re right, there is a lot going on, which I think makes it interesting but also a tea I wouldn’t want to drink often.

And White Antlers: it’s not doll heads. Those are more powdery :) I once tasted Cabbage Patch kids in this tea: https://steepster.com/derk/posts/392123

White Antlers

derk Yes! Doll head is another way of describing a powdery note in perfume, heliotrope often being the culprit. Cabbage Patch Kids always seemed to have an air of malovolence about them so I always gave ’em a wide berth which negated any tasting or smelling.

Still smells weird before it’s steeped, but the taste is growing on me a lot. Creamy/minty flavour combinations really seem to be my jam right now and that’s sort of what’s going on here, but with the added layer of a rich nuttyness as well and just a hint of something floral. I find it more complex as a blend than it needs to be, but well balanced at its core.
