I love coconut chai blends, my favorite being from Satori Tea Company. This doesn’t quite reach that level for me, but I’m really enjoying the creamy coconut goodness.

This tastes like a cozy warmth. Yes I’m drinking it hot so it actually is warm, but it also feels warm. If that makes any sense. I can taste the smoke but it’s not overwhelming. Wish I was getting more of the marshmallow though. I would buy a bag of this, for sure. Thanks for adding to the TTB, Skysamurai!

This tastes/smells like a mix between wet dog and the inside of a Big Lots. I don’t know of any other way to describe it.

I wasn’t sure starting out if this was a black tea or a honeybush tea processed as a black tea. Is that a thing? Anyway, it definitely tastes like a black tea. Maybe a little lighter in flavor. I’m enjoying it very much as it cools. A slight chocolate flavor is coming through now.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is the third tea I’ve tried from Dessert by Deb (in the TTB at least) and the first one I’ve really loved. The first blend was good but missing something and the second I did not like at all. This one was creamy and spiced and just delicious.

Profile

Bio

Lifetime student. Lover of books and paper and ink. Kitchen dweller. Aspiring herbalist, excessively proud cat lady, and tea fanatic. Thirty-something elder millennial. She/her.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Favorites
Any and all black teas, smoky teas, raspberry, strawberry, red fruits, bergamot, chai spices, floral teas, caramel/toffee, jasmine, rose, vanilla, peaches, plums, valerian root, cinnamon, cardamom

Not a huge fan
White teas, green teas, artificial sweeteners, sarsaparilla, licorice, lemongrass, lavender, hot hibiscus, hibiscus in black tea blends

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
