From Dessert by Deb

Cool summer nights out by the campfire turn into warm and toasty fall nights in by the fireplace. And nothing says warm and toasty like decadent, ooey, gooey s’mores! Dark chocolate, creamy coconut, and maple “graham” flakes come together in this black tea laced with warm vanilla for an unforgettable tea latte. And with a touch of smoke from lapsang souchong, you’ll bring that sweet, toasted, fireside feeling right into your mug.

I only tried this tea with milk. I will say that the ingredients list was very intriguing! It says Fireside S’mores; however, this does not contain any marshmallows. I know Deb makes organic, wholesome tea blends free from any artificial/natural flavourings. I appreciate this so much about her company! But I am sure it requires more creativity to mimic the flavours of well-known desserts.

I absolutely loved this tea. It smells very smokey, like the fire from a bbq. For preparation, I steeped this on the stove in boiled water. I then added some milk to it, and brought it to a boil. The chocolate had melted and incorporated nicely into the drink.

As far as taste goes, it tastes like a smokey, chocolate, creamy drink! I really enjoyed this tea because I have never had Lapsang Souchong before, and I thought incorporating it into a s’mores inspired tea was super creative!

I would highly recommend this tea! I will repurchase it for sure.

My only constructive criticism for this is that I wish it had more Lapsang Souchong. But this might just be because my taste buds love stronger, bold flavours.

As a disclosure/forewarning/etc etc, I feel that it’s necessary to say that purchasing this tea was very out of character for me. For as long as I’ve been living, I’ve never enjoyed the taste of chocolate, and still don’t, but there is something about this tea that drew me to it. And I think that thing was the Lapsang Souchong.

After trying Fireside S’mores both as a latte and as a plain hot cuppa, I can now see why Deb insisted on only having this tea with milk. Milk really elevates the overall creaminess and helps support the lack of actual marshmallows. But I think that the combination of vanilla, toasted coconut, and the aforementioned Lapsang Souchong did a well enough job of mimicking a toasted marshmallow flavour. There is a nice amount of savoury smokiness without being overwhelming and outshining the components. Most surprising to me was the fact that the chocolate was palatable and not nearly as strong as I feared.

Overall, I really enjoyed this use of Lapsang Souchong tea. Even though I don’t think this tea necessarily screamed s’mores, it was still pretty good and I think that it’s worth trying at least once, if you’re able to get your hands on some.

I love when people use Lapsang in flavoured tea blends soooo much!

The dry leaf of this one smells a little savory, like liquid smoke and BBQ, but the taste is all rich milk chocolate and marshmallow with whisps of smoke throughout. It’s delicious, and gives me the feeling of burnt marshmallows at the end of a summer BBQ or when camping, when the area of practically drenched in the smell of smoke and the fire is dying down – the nights where you can almost feel the nostalgia of the moment in the air.

Definitely liked this one, and look forward to trying it again in the future!

Latte Sipdown (gone before it was even added so no number change)

My new Dessert by Deb order arrived with all the tasty sounding fall teas. This is one of the ones I’m splitting with Sil and it smelled so good while I was dividing it that I decided to use my half to make a latte.

This was a little underleafed compared to usual and at first it came off a bit thin. However, the more I drink the better it gets. It’s good but I don’t know if it’s s’mores. I think this is more fireside coconut than anything. Smokey, creamy, coconut, and a touch of sweet maple/chocolate.

Since it’s not quite s’mores, I don’t think I need more. Based on the name and smell, I was actually worried I’d be immediately placing another order for copious amounts of this so I’m glad it didn’t completely deliver.

How are you feeling about this company overall? I’ve been eyeing the teas, but reviews seem to be lukewarm.

I’ve been enjoying the teas. We all know I like dessert blends so they speak to me. Some have been good or have made awesome lattes. Others have been meh/or flat. She uses a lot of coconut and maple so if those are not flavors you like, best to steer clear. I don’t know if that’s particularly helpful. I can always share some samples if you like so you can try before you buy!

Dustin

Thank you for the offer! I might take you up on that! Do you want to do a swap? I have a ton of French teas at the moment. My cupboard is horribly out of date.

Sil
