First, I have to raise my cup to the lovely Indigobloom who is enjoying her last day at a crappy job today. Here’s to new beginings :)

Oh, golly. I have a huge tea-crush on The NecessiTeas, and I’ve yet to try a tea created by Ms. Linsey that isn’t rave worthy. Blackberry Maple Waffle will receive my first lukewarm review. This is a good quality flavored black tea, but I don’t get any maple or waffle flavor from it. The blackberry essence shines in this tea for sure and I guess that’s reason enough to like it. I just had my heart set on a true Blackberry Maple Waffle breakfast experience… I didn’t get that.


hehe thx Jenn, you just made my day!! however, the new girl is a little overwhelmed so I’ve been asked to stay on another day to train her. I go back for one more day, on Monday no less! oh well. Irony had to make a play in there somewhere :)


You and I are cut from the same cloth because I’ve done the same exact thing! We’re suckas.


haha really?! yup, we’ve both been played for job fools!


I think that we just have integrity and strong work ethics. Even if I don’t care for a company or organization, I’d never want my legacy to be negative. I’ve always done my best to leave my staff and my affairs in the best possible order even if secretly I’d love to stick it to the bad people.


yeah that sounds about right! I’ve lost quite a bit of respect for the people at that office but they do work in a cut-throat industry so I guess I’ll let some of their issues slide :)
and the girl who is replacing me, she’s very sweet! I can’t let her stress just because I want outta there. Darn my work ethic!! ;)

Backlogging: I received this a few weeks back when I ordered some heat sealed bags from The NecessiTeas. Sadly it ended up in my box of samples. This is the box I try to pick at least two samples from a day. Well, I finally grabbed this one last week. I have to say the dry leaves smelled awesome! Just like maple covered waffles. The hot tea was equally awesome. So much so that my non tea drinking neighbor next door tried to snag my cup when I stopped over to visit her at lunch! There was a nice mix of the blackberry, maple, and waffle flavors and they all worked really well with one another. No one flavor was stealing the show. I might have to order this one in the future.

Thanks to amandastory516 for letting me try this! I definitely taste the berry and some sweetness, but no maple or waffle specifically. I don’t love the black tea that they used – I feel like it could be richer/tastier. With milk, it made a pretty decent cup. It’s generically desserty, but good.

Sipdown 77-2021
Made the last cup of this for my partner and had a sip. Not a favorite, and not one I would repurchase. Not sure the waffle cone pieces really add anything to the flavor. Mostly maple, with a bit of a generic berry flavor.

Yesyesyes I LOVE this one! Having only drank it once before this sample from VariaTEA (thank you!) got lost in amongst my stash until I went on the hunt for a blackberry tea and stumbled across it again. The scent of the dry leaf is absolutely intoxicating, and it only gets better as the tea brews. Huge chunks of waffle and whole blackberries make it visually stunning, too, and the whole experience is rounded out by the incredible flavour. Even after following the recommended steeping parameters of 5 minutes at almost boiling, there is very little astringency and the black base comes across as very smooth with a honey-like sweetness that really compliments the blackberry note which is strongest overall. The maple is noticeable throughout the sip too, and the fluffy golden waffle comes in at the end, which surprised me. I didn’t add any milk this time, as I was enjoying the bright juicy blackberry notes too much, but I did add a drop of maple syrup and it amped up the waffle comparison by a notch. I just about guzzled my entire mug down, and am about to go and resteep the leaves even though I had planned to move on to another tea next! I think this is the only tea I’ve tried from The NecessiTeas, and it was an excellent introduction. I’ve added it to my wishlist already, checked out The NecessiTeas website to make sure they ship to the UK (they do!) and might be eyeing up a few blends I want to try once this comes back into stock and I’ve got through a sufficient chunk of my current teas.

This gives me Butiki’s-little-sister vibes, which is very exciting.

ETA: The base doesn’t hold up to a second steep, but that’s okay. The blackberry has faded too so now it’s like eating a jam donut.

Ooh, yum!(I may have posted this twice, but this sounds worthy of two yums.)


It is definitely yum yum worthy!

Martin Bednář

Blackberry tea which tastes like blackberries? Really it is possible?


The problem with Necessiteas is they usually have so many things out of stock.


@Martin – it’s true! Juicy and fresh (:


@tea sipper – ah no! ): fingers crossed this comes back into stock, because it is definitely going on the future purchase list!

Tea Swap Sample Sipdown of the Day! (2)

This swap sample comes from VariaTEA. The name was too tempting to pass up!

Unfortunately, I’m not getting a whole lot out of this tea. There is a nice bit of tart raspberry/blackberry flavor, but otherwise it tastes a little chalky? And I’m definitely not getting maple or waffles. The base tea is mellow with light musty and woody notes.

Ah well, they can’t all be winners! ;)

Withholding a rating since I’m not sure how old the tea is.

Flavors: Artificial, Blackberry, Musty, Raspberry, Smooth, Tart, Wood

How can anyone take blackberries, maple, and waffles, put those three things together, and screw it up? Wrong, just wrong!

Cameron B.

Hah, to be fair it’s possible it’s lost a bit of flavor.


It is on the older side so that is probably the issue. However, I had it not too long ago and it was still flavorful. Perhaps I just know what this tasted like fresh and my brain did the work at imagining it is still there…

A delicious sipdown with milk, and not a lotto say about it since I wrote a proper review last week. Lots of rich black tea tannins, some blackberry, some honey and graham cracker.

Flavors: Berry, Blackberry, Graham, Honey


Never thought to try this with milk. Hmm…


Do it! That creamy goodness is to die for.

Sipdown (213)!

Made this one iced at DT today; I actually had brought it with the plan to drink it hot on shift but the store was so hot today that all I could bring myself to make was iced teas. It was actually really tasty though! At first I found it almost unpleasantly brisk, but after a couple sips I settled into the flavour and really appreciated the nuances of each element.

I expected a richer blackberry, but instead this is fairly mellow and creeps in the background a bit; it’s sweet but not overly and is very natural. I’d describe it primarily as the taste of a blackberry that’s just not quite ripe yet, but right on the cusp. What was surprisingly strong to me was the maple which was present in the top of the sip alongside the brisker, bold malty black base. The finish was vanilla and dry cinnamon. Overall the drink was just a hint astringent.

A pump of agave probably wouldn’t have hurt to brighten it up/draw out the blackberry but I generally try to avoid sweetener where I can and this wasn’t bad. Just throwing the idea out there for anyone who might find this not quite sweet enough.

Overall though I think this does do a really nice, solid job of recreating the taste of waffles with maple syrup and blackberries – just in a way where the tea itself isn’t lost in the flavours. It took a while, but I ended up finishing it off quite enamored with it.

Thanks VariaTEA!


Yay! I’m glad you liked this one.
