This is absolutely delicious. The toasty, caramelized notes of the hojicha combine with the rich, dark chocolate flavor so well. I appreciate that it’s not too sweet.

This was a sample included in my latest DBD order. I tend to avoid purchasing too many teas with coconut because I don’t want to worry about them going rancid. But, very glad I got to try this one. It’s delicious. The lavender is incredibly strong and aromatic. But, is mellowed by the soft, creamy coconut. The green base is barely distinguishable. Overall, a really tasty blend.

I drank this in the middle of a hectic work day, and admittedly don’t remember much about it. I remember tasting banana and coconut, and I remember liking it.

Not a true sipdown, but it’s going into the swap pile. This doesn’t read as cereal milk to me, but kind of tastes like a Hostess Zinger. It has a weird raspberry thing going on with the oily coconut. Not a fan of this one.

I just received my Dessert by Deb order that I placed a few weeks ago! Deb’s packages are the absolute best. In addition to the extra 50g packet I was able to choose with a recent discount code, Deb also included an adorable boba notebook, a matcha pin, a metal tin, a teapot shaped teabag rest, 3 extra samples, and a handwritten card! Such a generous package of goodies.

It was difficult to decide what to try first, but ended up going with this one- glad I did! I absolutely love it. It’s quite simple, but works really well. It’s a very straightforward flavor- brown sugar+black tea, but I find the combo so delicious and comforting. I didn’t prepare it as a milk tea this time, as I wanted to test it out plain to start. But, I will certainly be revisiting this with a creamy addition.

Not much else to say about this one. Goodbye, tea.

Lol that’s like failed car sale


I still have a tiny bit left in the pouch you sent me. I can’t bring myself to finish it. It looks like they still have it on their website though, so I just need to go ahead and buy a bag of it.

Just an idea I recently got into habit of mixing anything I am struggling to enjoy with bits of gotu kola


@Sierge Krьstъ – I can’t say I’ve ever had gotu kola on its own. What does it taste like?

A sad sipdown. I’ve really enjoyed having this tea on hand, I find it so dimensional and exciting to drink. This cup was particularly nutty, with some mild cranberry notes, and just a touch of marzipan. I’ll probably re-purchase it at some point.

Finished this off as a coldbrew with honey. The lychee scent is absolutely divine. The front of the sip is juicy, and tastes like biting into a fresh lychee. However, there is a really strong perfumey flavor at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. The perfumey flavor is so distracting, it’s difficult to enjoy the fresh, juiciness.

Though, I’ll taste anything once!

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
