Thanks to amandastory516 for this sample! I wouldn’t be able to tell it’s creme brulee specifically since it’s missing that slightly burnt element, but it’s enjoyable. It definitely tastes sweet and desserty, and milk complements it well.

Another sample that was kindly sent by AmandaStory
I had meant to drink this one yesterday but didn’t end up getting around to it. Creme Brulee is not something that I’ve tried before but I do sort of know what it’s supposed to taste like. This one is pretty yummy and does taste like burnt sugar with a little custard. I think the oolong base works really well here and you can definitely taste it. It’s milky and a tad floral. As it cools the oolong flavor comes out more and more. I would definitely consider buying some of this one.

Sample from AmandaStory! Thanks!

I keep going back and forth between thinking this tastes creme brulee like and not. I feel like it’s a hard flavor to transfer over to a tea. It starts out with a deeper burnt sugar flavor, a hint of sweetness and malt, then it goes a little flat. It gets interesting again in the finish, but only just. Malt is just barely back and an almost rooibos taste. I wonder if this would do better cold steeped. Hot isn’t doing it for me.

Last April, my 2 year old cat passed away very unexpectedly. She had congenital kidney disease that was undetected and deteriorated her kidneys extremely quickly. This was pretty heartbreaking and awful, and was just the cherry on top of the crap sundae that was 2020.
Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been fostering a perfectly healthy 8 week old kitten (Archie), and a 12 week old kitten (Melvin) that has an assortment of health problems that the vets have been trying to get to the cause of. Yesterday, they discovered that Melvin has degenerative congenital kidney disease, much like Remi had. The vet has given him 6-12 months to live. I was, of course, pretty devastated to find this out. I was supposed to have Melvin for 5 days, and then he was going to be posted for adoption. With this news, we can’t adopt him out. So, I had to decide whether or not I would foster him until the end of his life, or pass him off for someone else to do so. All the while, my partner and I had been considering adopting Archie, who we bonded with pretty deeply (even though I said I would never adopt more than 3 cats in my 2 bedroom apartment). We made the decision to keep them both. The thought of losing another cat in the same way we lost Remi is pretty unimaginable, but I know we’ll give him the best possible life. He and Archie also love each other and have become the best of friends.

On top of all that…I was rejected from an internal job I applied for because I was overqualified. Boo 2021. Boo to you.

Anyway- as for this tea. It’s more of a brown sugar/custard flavor, rather than the caramelized flavor of a creme brûlée that I was hoping for.

I’m sorry to hear that about your cat, but happy to hear you decided to keep the little guy and give him the best possible life. I’m a big advocate of adopting “health problem” and “elderly” animals which are always overlooked in the shelter system for young, cute kittens and puppies, just because people don’t want to deal with the “potential grief” of giving these animals loving homes when they most need it. They deserve to be happy, comfortable, and loved whether they live one more day or ten more years.

I took in a street cat as soon as I bought my house (a condo, so one cat for me!) which I was told was “young, maybe a year or two” because she was so malnurished. After a vet visit, the age was actually 5-7 years. My Dad said, “You don’t want a cat that old, you’ll have no time together!” I couldn’t believe this sentiment was still so rampant. She’s such a lovely companion animal (who came with her own set of health issues — a past run in with a car on the streets left her with a broken pelvic bone that has healed “off” so she has some pain with #2… I try to help the best I can through diet and supplements and she does a pretty good job these days).

Enjoy your kitties, and your tea!

I was fostering a lovely, sweet female Birman several years ago. She was about 20 or 21 years old and in Chronic Renal Failure. She was fit when I took her in, but as happens with CRF cats, once she started to decline, the end came quickly. I had her for 7 or 8 months and never regretted a second of her dear, gentle company. Enjoy your time with little Melvin. Remember, cats live solely in the present moment. Treat each day with him as a gift.

That’s such a hard decision, but I know you guys are going to have the best time together <3 you’re an awesome cat parent!

I’m sorry about the job you didn’t get and all the kitty health issues! I wish they could pin down the reasons cats so young get so sick.

Thank you for all of the kind words. It’s very difficult, but I’m so happy to be able to give Melvin a happy home.
