What an odd flavour combination. It really works though. Thank you for the sample, VariaTEA!

1 teabag, 650 mL very hot water (just under boiling)r, 6 minutes or so.

I am really digging the peppermint + buttery creaminess. I like that the caramel is highlighted with vanilla and is very smooth. It is unique, but I love it. If I ever see a box in the store, it shall come home with me.

This really does taste like a buttermint. I drank it straight today which is the way I like it best. The smooth vanilla flavor disappears with the addition of milk and sugar.

Today I had a cheat day on my diet and went out with friends to one of the restaurants (Bent) hosting Summerlicious, an event that has many Toronto restaurants serving 3-course prix fixe menus at reduced costs (similar to a DineLA or a DineNY). It was definitely an awesome way to go off the diet because it meant I got to have a little bit of everything (my 2 friends and I ended up ordering one of each option and just sharing them all). And to top it all off, we went for ice cream in Kensington market afterwards because why not :P. Anyways, by the time I came home, I felt like I could roll into my house but I wanted tea so I decided to make the easiest one I could think of – this since it is premeasured in its bag and I can steep forever and it would still be good. Plus, its mint and you get mints at the end of big meals so it just seemed like the right pick.

Anyways, I was about to get ready to settle in for the night and drink my tea but then my brother told me we had to go to the park to fight at a Pokemon gym so off we went, leaving my hot tea sitting on my night stand. Well, we did manage to take over the park and then went in search of a supposedly nearby Haunter. Unfortunately, he ended up being on the other side of a row of houses and when we looped around (as opposed to cutting through people’s backyards at 11:30 at night) we lost him. So, I returned home, showered, and am now finally getting to drink my cold tea. Tbh, its still just as good. Honestly, it is creamy and buttery and has just the right amount of mint to keep things fresh and clean. Though the hot cup would have been preferable, this is still a nice way to end off the day.

That tea sounds really good! I’m surprised I’ve never heard of it/tried it. I don’t suppose you can spare a tea bag of it?

Christina / BooksandTea

Where did you go for Summerlicious? My family will be going to Aviv Restaurant (near Casa Loma) for that next Saturday.

VariaTEA

@Arby I should have one I can spare. Message me and we can set something up.

@Christina We went to Bent restaurant

Super Starling!

I HATE IT WHEN THEY DISAPPEAR.
Do you ever pop it back in the microwave to re-heat it? I feel like that’s considered gauche, but I totally do it all the time.

Evol Ving Ness

How was Bent? Would you go back again?

And Christina, please tell us how you enjoy Aviv too!

VariaTEA

@Starling It was very disheartening. And I dont usually microwave them because I dont mind drinking them cool but also my mugs aren’t microwave-safe so best not to risk it

@Evol It was good. I usually don’t like salmon but we had a salmon tartare that was awesome and then a tandoori salmon dish that was also quite nice. Of course there were other dishes and all were good. One of the friends I was with has gone to a Summerlicious nightly and says usually they are just fine but Bent is her favorite so far. As for me, I liked it but I am happy having gone once and don’t necessarily need to return. It was a nice meal but nothing was so mind blowing that I NEED to go back.

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, VariaTEA! I did go more frequently some time ago, but the thrill is gone for me these days. Either that or I tend to avoid crowds and events that create a buzz. However, your friend’s smittenness makes me consider trying it one of these days.

I have been to Lee on King, and it was ok. Not wow, but ok. And then, I got food poisoning from the past date lychee juice they served me, so the ok factor got reduced even further.

All that said, I tend to save up my foodie excesses for Montreal.

One teabag used

Brewing tea has a minty and creamy candy aroma.

Minty with a background hint of creaminess and pudding-like sweetness.

Thanks to MissB for sharing with me

I don’t know how to tell you guys this, so I’ll just say it: this is one of the best teas on the planet. It tastes EXACTLY like a buttermint, like you’d expect one to taste. Creamy, dreamy vanilla and a hint of refreshing mint at the end. Like, well, a buttermint. Like a hard candy, but in liquid form… I’ve already had six cups today. It’s that good.

Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Mint, Vanilla

“Intensely” is a word you don’t often find in a tea name, looks like it’s accurate!

Anlina

Oh that sounds amazing. I’m not allowed to order more tea but here I am poking around Britsuperstore, contemplating an order.

MissB

I doubt I’ll have enough left over to share at this point, but I may need to grab another box.. so I might be able to send over a few, depending. Mikumofu, their entire Intensely series is actually quite good! Although, I didn’t have any of the chamomile ones, so perhaps they aren’t as amazing.

Mikumofu

This still sounds like the best Intensely of the lot! :)

Maddy Barone

That really sounds good!

Sil

Oh wow….
