From The Republic of Tea

This decadent dessert tea has the homemade flavors of vanilla sponge cake drizzled with rich caramel sauce. The full-bodied base of premium black tea lends itself well to a splash of milk, making it a perfect afternoon tea to partner with puddings, scones and shortbread.

The award-winning TV series, Downton Abbey® has entranced millions of viewers and become a modern media sensation. Every episode is an explosion of drama, relationships and intrigue. Downton Abbey is home to the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants. The first two seasons follow their lives from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 through the First World War while the later seasons follow them into the early 1920s. From the pen of Academy Award® winner Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey is the most watched drama ever on PBS!

So… Why the flavored teas lately, some may wonder. Well, my nephew has been staying with me (family crisis) and he likes flavored teas.

We both enjoyed this one. As one noted, it was very bready. It was creamy, vanilla and caramel notes, bread pudding-like taste. Not overly sweet. Recommended dessert tea.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Berry, Caramel, Toast, Vanilla

Sorry to hear there is a crisis. You are awesome for making this time a nice memory for your nephew.

@ashmanra Thank you <3, sweety so much. I am pretty much a loner except for my mother and siblings (My dad, my hero, died a few years ago) so there is nothing I wouldn’t do for them… And that is a wonderful way to look at the situation, I will continue to make it a nice memory for him!

Well this tea is rather wonderful. It’s bready and light. It doesn’t need milk. The name fits it quite well. I would love to have more if I come across it again!

What a horrible, horrible day at work. The morning was fine, but the afternoon … No. I cried. I used four letters words. Repeatedly and at volume. Good thing I work from home. The cats barely blinked. Really, it wasn’t a big deal. We were “blitzing”, where you try to work as many pieces as you possibly can in 4 hours and then post the number of your completes for all to see. For the first 2.5 hours I completed 17. Yes, 17. Normally you can do 20 an hour. But two co workers went through the queue and cherry picked the easy ones, leaving the icky ones for me and others. I know that for a fact, because the computer system records who looks at a piece. Guess who had the most completes? Yes, those two. When I mentioned it to the team leader she looked surprised and said it didn’t really matter who completed the most. I think she missed my point.

OK, done. Got that off my chest. Bad day = good tea, right? Yep, what is better after a crap day then pampering yourself with tea? I picked up a tin of this at the new local tea shop back in September, and haven’t opened it until now. I remember hearing some of the Steepstercians I follow talk about this tea favorably last winter. I couldn’t find it in town, and I didn’t want to order a tin, so I was glad to see it there. It was a little spendy, but then you get the tin, which is really nice.

So, the tea. Beautiful rich color. I can’t smell it, but I imagine it smells divine. The flavor is good. Again, I don’t taste a whole lot, but this tea is mellow. Mild. A little sweet. Creamy. What I DON’T taste is as important to me as what I do taste. No bitterness. No fake flavoring. No feeling of dryness on my tongue. All in all, this is a delicious dessert tea, perfect for me to comfort myself with after a spectacularly crap day.

Aww no, I’m sorry. I hope you will have a better day tomorrow. That reminds me of a job ad I saw for those at-home transcription services. Sounds like it works in a similar way.

Maddy Barone

Thanks, Fjellrev. I pretty much like my job. I’ve been there for 15 years. Now and then there’s bound to be a day that sucks. :)

gmathis

If only it came with Mrs. Patmore’s scones and a downstairs maid to clean up the kitchen! (I like this one, too. With a little 1/2 and 1/2, it’s even more pastry-ish.)

Inkling

Sorry about the rotten day! Glad you were able to come home to a nice treat.

The first time I had this (about a year ago), I hadn’t particularly liked it, but I think that was because I sweetened it then, and found it a little bit too much like drinking a pastry. I found I enjoyed this this time, when unsweetened (though I suspect the opposite may hold true for a number of tea drinkers).
Got 2 bags of this, so brewed them together. For those who may not know, when Brits use the word “pudding” it can also be used to mean “dessert”, not just the soft, custard-like stuff served in bowls. I believe that’s how the word is meant here: as a “dessert” tea.
It certainly has a near-sweetness to it, even without sugar or other sweeteners. I felt like I was tasting pastry, even with none present. It seems to have a nuttiness, as well. I liked it—maybe as a fall tea, to enjoy watching the pretty leaves outside the window, or at campside.

From OST’s stash sale.

This is a tea I’ve been wanting to try for a while since I’ve seen a few reviews singing it’s praises. I haven’t enjoyed too many of Republic of Tea’s blends in the past and I know I don’t tend to like their black tea base, but I decided I wanted to give this one a try anyway. I’m glad I took the chance. This is a lightly caramel flavored tea, and the base has a bit of bitterness, but it’s quite pleasant. It doesn’t taste artificial and there doesn’t seem to be any added sweetener (rare for a caramel flavored tea). I don’t think I like it quite as much as Bigelow’s Salted Caramel, but it’s definitely one I will enjoy while it’s in my cupboard.

Flavors: Bitter, Caramel, Sweet

Many thanks to the wonderful and generous Ost! I was lucky enough to pick up some things from her awesome stash sale, and today the box arrived. I’m so excited to try all these new teas!

First up, Mrs. Patmore’s Pudding. Somehow I got it in my head that this was a fruity tea, but that is not the case. I guess if the pudding in question is vanilla or butterscotch pudding, this could be a pudding tea. The flavors are pretty mellow and kind of difficult to pick out. It would be nice if the vanilla and caramel notes were a bit stronger, but the tea does have this amazing creamy smoothness going for it, so overall, I’m really liking it. Good to have a few bagged teas on hand too, so I can steep on the road :)

I’ve been wanting to try this tea for a while and finally had the opportunity yesterday. Republic of Tea is pretty hit and miss for me, but this one was a hit! Sweet, rich, caramel and vanilla flavoring layered over a pleasantly smooth black base. Very tasty with no additives and I’m guessing it would be delicious as a latte as well. Methinks I’ll be purchasing this one the next time I place a RoT order!

Flavors: Caramel, Smooth, Sweet, Vanilla

I’ve only tried 3 teas from Republic of Tea, and I didn’t care for them. However, I might give this one a try when I can. It sounds splendid!

I’ve always wanted to give this one a go.

I read the company description. I’m a fat boy. I know what decadent vanilla sponge cake drizzled with caramel sauce tastes like. (hint – not this) This reminds me of Superberry that my wife loves. To me if you said this was rosehips and currants I would believe you.

Downtown Abbey is a show that I am never going to watch despite knowing a lot of people love it. Mrs Patmore’s Pudding Tea seems adored by most who have reviewed it. I’m happy for fans of both, but I’m sticking with my Earl Grey and Star Trek.

Live long and prosper.

Daylon R Thomas

My friend has that one and she constantly recommends it. At the same time, I have the Sweet Journey which is essentially the same tea swapping the carob for the cardamom.

gmathis

All the more for me :)

K S

Yep. And that’s why we have a gazillion different blends. I really tried with this one – I tend to love almost everything.

I was certain that a little dairy would make this even more dessert-y, but in truth, it doesn’t affect the taste much. (Mrs. Patmore does not permit amateurs to fiddle around in her kitchen. Sorry, mum! I’ll shimmy back to the scullery and see to those dirty dishes.)

However, this is still a creamy, fruity, after-dinner treat. And a warm cup in my cramping hand is welcome. I have discovered grown-up coloring books. Just what I need. Another way to fritter away an afternoon :)

ashmanra

I love their egg holder in the kitchen! I want one! Now if my chickens will quit molting and get back to laying an obscene number of eggs I could fill it up!

gmathis

Well, they won’t need theirs after this season … maybe you could offer to take it off the production company’s hands ;)

ashmanra

I pop them out an email right away! :)
