This tea came with the dessert course at St. James Tearoom. It has a nice mild lemon flavor. It’s tasty with cream, but even better without. I worried I wouldn’t enjoy it hot because I usually drink lemon herbals cold, but I’m pleased to say that it was great. It paired really nicely with the fantastic desserts. Now I’m very excited to return to St. James and also check out the other tearoom in town.
This tea came with our bread course at St. James Tearoom. It tastes pleasantly desserty with cream and sugar. I taste caramel and other vaguer desserty flavors. The dessert flavors were a little mild for my preferences, but it wasn’t bad. I actually have some of this same tea from Adagio that I grabbed from a TTB a few months ago, which I’ll have to try soon to compare.
My sister visited recently, and we had some excellent afternoon tea at St. James Tearoom. This was the tea that came with the first course, and it tasted very high quality and nice. It was malty and had no bitterness. I enjoyed it with milk and sugar. It was really solid and tasty, and the food that went with it was awesome.
I got this tea around Christmas time from a local tearoom and it has to be the neatest tea ever! I don’t know exactly what is in here so I will do my best to take a guess. Basic black tea base with plum flavoring and pieces of hibiscus. There are also little pieces of something silver (I think they have to be some sort of sugar crystal).
These silver pieces dissolve in the water and make the tea SPARKLE! I kid you not. The tea sparkles, or perhaps shimmers is a better description, when the light hits it. It is really cool looking and actually tastes really good for a flavored tea. I don’t think the silver pieces add any flavor or sweetness. They just as a sparkle. Hoping it is safe to consume, but it sure does look awesome!
EDIT TO ADD:
A quick photo of it that isn’t very good, but you get the idea-
Had afternoon tea this past weekend at a local tearoom and was served this tea. I immediately purchased some because it is one of the best flavored teas I have ever had.
Black tea base with rooibos, almonds, and hazelnut. I’m sure there is some flavoring involved but there are actual almond slices and hazelnut pieces throughout the leaves. It is incredibly warm and comforting. A perfect fall tea that is very flavorful and not bitter. Steep time of 4 minutes makes a wonderful cup. Just wish I could order this online instead of driving downtown. I’m lazy like that.
