From Dessert by Deb

Mmm, the warmth of toffee, caramel, and maple all rolled into one! This dessert blend was inspired by a truly Canadian treat: maple syrup snow candy and snow taffy! Many of us north of the border have memories of school field trips where we’d roll maple syrup on fresh snow on a stick for an unforgettable winter sweet. Butter Toffee Cream is your yummy sugar shack in a teacup.

Certified organic ingredients: Coconut, Fair Trade Rooibos, Black Tea, Vanilla, Honey, Bee Pollen, Canadian Maple, Brown Sugar, Apple

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada.

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 212F for 4-6 mins

Sipdown!

I think the coconut and the honey are my biggest issues with this tea. When these two ingredients are at their strongest they dominate the blend. The latter in particular accentuates the rooibos in a way I do not enjoy and that makes me think of honey cough drops (also, why not just use the less medicinal, sweeter honeybush instead of rooibos + honey?). Bee pollen, which I generally like, also adds a sweet floral quality that exacerbates the medicinal quality for me today.

There are moments when this blend works. The aftertaste is creamy, with hints of vanilla, and the cup smells pleasantly buttery. It’s not a terrible latte or cold brew either! I’m just not terribly into coconut as a sub/filler ingredient at this point, and I’ve never been fond of rooibos/black tea blends (I don’t get it), or teas with added sweeteners. This blend has brown sugar, maple syrup, and honey and it’s quite sweet but also thinner than I’d like a “toffee” tea.

Blech. This one might be coming back to you variaTEA. Just. Nope. I mean it was al ost drinkable but then I’d take a sip and be like WHAT is this? Yes there’s a bit of creaminess to it…and I can imagine butter toffe on some sips but overall it’s just rooibosy, coconut cream something,

VariaTEA

I don’t want more of this so it might have to be rehomed elsewhere. I only had this as a latte and it was ok but not my favorite.

Worked in office today – I’ve been having all my tea orders sent to the office even though I’ve been working from home mostly, it’s just still so much more convenient that way. So, I came in today to a package from the super lovely VariaTEA who coordinated group orders of both Dessert by Deb and Tea Runners and then sent teas from both my way – along with a few other samples I was excited to try from her cupboard…

As she talked about with her first notes for this company, they’ve kind of blown up in the instagram tea blogging world and because everyone else was excited about them that made me excited to try them too!

I tend to avoid coconut blends because of the stability issues with coconut, even though I often really love the flavour, and Deb seems to use a lot of coconut – but I picked some up anyway. It was the toffee element of this that drew me in the most – I dream of good toffee and caramel teas, but I’m so often disappointed because it’s such a tricky flavour to pull off in a tea. I have to say, I don’t think she’s nailed it here. However, with that said…

I did really enjoy the tea! While I didn’t get toffee, I was taken back to a more nostalgic flavour profile that I love and miss – and that’s DAVIDsTEA’s Buttered Rum black tea blend! I’m sure what made me think of it was the combination of that buttery/butterscotch flavour and coconut, since those were the non tea ingredients in Buttered Rum. The mouthfeel was a bit oily and the flavour slightly thin, but it still took me to a magical memory.

So I’m feeling quite positive about the blend overall!

At times this screamed butter toffee to me and at other times I just tasted the rooibos and I’m not really sure why it was there to begin with. So overall ok but not amazing.
