From Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Inspired by the classic Italian coffee-based dessert, traditionally served as a shot of espresso over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This lush black tea is blended with roasted coffee beans and almonds for extra nutty notes, AND in true B&B style, we’ve finished this one off with brew-TEA-ful blue flower petals.

Delicious! I bought a small bag of this the last time it came around as a seasonal without realising that it was a seasonal — very distressing when I came to re-order and found I couldn’t! There’s a lovely light, sweet nuttiness to this blend that goes along with a very rich mouthfeel to make a really delicious cup.

I woke up really tired today.
So, I took probably one of the most caffeine teas I have. Black tea with coffee beans. And fruits.

Kittena hit the nail on the head with description of this tea. It smells after Tiramisu, or, rather Czech chocolate bar called Kofila. It is bar filled with coffee cream. That is it.

I prepared it with splash of cream. Thus I would not rate it. But, it is delicious even plain. Cream added creaminess (how surprising), and made it bit milder.

Flavors: Coffee, Creamy, Vanilla

Glad you like it! I do imagine it’s more caffeinated than many teas – there were a LOT of coffee beans in there…

Indeed they are. I had to pick them out to have some tea in strainer, hehe.

Such a random mix of ingredients! For some reason, I had to try it. (Probably based on the description – “The classic Italian ice cream dessert, vanilla notes with a shot of espresso!”) There are coffee beans in here (LOTS), along with things like rosehip, hibiscus, and cranberry. Quite odd.

The fragrance from the bag of tea is absolutely divine – if you like coffee, that is. Heavy coffee aromas, with syrupy sweet caramelly/vanilla notes. It really smells like an iced cappuccino from Tim Horton’s tastes. Since I happen to like (sweetened) coffee, this aroma was quite appealing to me! Brewed up, the aroma is a bit weaker, but remains the same – and it’s still quite powerful. Flavourwise is where it’s a bit odd… because it tastes like an unsweetened, uncreamy iced cappuccino. Which, frankly, is not as good as it sounds, if it even does still sound good. Definite coffee flavours and lovely vanilla, but without sweetness, it’s undrinkable for me, as a person who does not drink straight coffee. It’s not even the bitterness that’s bothering me though (it’s not all that bitter); I can’t put my finger on what’s strange about it (maybe the sour dried fruits?). However – adding milk improved it greatly, and adding some maple syrup made it taste pretty much, to me, like a deliciously fattening iced coffee drink (note: it was cold by the time I got around to doctoring it). So basically, I strongly recommend having this as a latte (or even just with added milk), preferably sweetened. I’m not sure what the purpose of the rosehip/hib/cranberry are…

Note: I just picked up Vanilla Cappuccino from DavidsTea, and this definitely has a similar vibe to it. I’m interested in trying the DT one to see how it compares. I suspect it will be sweeter, at the very least, which isn’t necessarily a good thing.

ETA: Oh yeah, getting some marzipan-y notes too, along the vanilla/caramel.

I have completely same thoughts about this tea. But actually, it is not so bad as I was afraid of.
