My tea came today! This is the one that incited me to order so I had to try it first.

I opened the pouch and sniffed and my knees trembled. Literally. You think I am joking? Watch the video. There is no video so just imagine it. It really happened.

It smelled so good that I thought my heart would break if it didn’t taste the way it smelled.
Since there are orange peels and chocolate chips and I know I am going to triple steep, I used a teaspoon and a half.

I am going to cry.

This is so good. It tastes like it smells. I think I had Jaffa Cakes once in Ireland. BUT easily available in the US are orange Pims (also in raspberry) which are nearly the same. And when my two youngest daughters and I first started having tea together and wanted to be fancy we bought Pims. Back when you could have people over for tea, remember? Back before viruses and nasty February weather that keeps you from even having tea with friends outside.

And this has taken me back to the best memories of those days.

The orange is fresh “peeling-an-orange-and-the-juice-lightly-mists-your-face” orange. Up front the aroma is all orange orange happy orange. Aromatherapists know that orange scent is a mood lifter and even peeling one can make people feel better. (I am so tired of all the orange, clove, and cinnamon teas though.)

As you swallow, the back and sides of your tongue are drenched with chocolate, which haunts your mouth after swallow. Orange up front, chocolate lingering after.

Tonight as I am sleeping, I will be whispering, but if the Ashman leans close to hear what I am saying, all he will hear is, “Jaffa Cakes.”

I prolly need more.

omg i miss jaffa cakes….

Emilie

Well I definitely need to get this now!

At this point, I don’t think it’ll even come close, but did I ever send you any of my dearly beloved Chocolate Orange from TeaMaze? It evoked a similar response the first time I tried it. Well, maybe not the weak knees…

It’s been years since I’ve had jaffa cakes. Admittedly it was from Aldi so not the best quality but I will have to seek out Pims.

I guess I’m lucky – my local grocery stocks Jaffa Cakes in the International section.

This sounds delicious. I don’t think it was available when I ordered a bunch of samples for my mother. Might be time for another order!

ashmanra

DrowningMySorrows: it is a brand new blend! Along with three others that I am excited to try!

ashmanra

Cameron B: World Market here may carry them, not sure, but my daughter said she has seen them in Raleigh.

Gmathis: No, I never had that chocolate orange!

ashmanra

Sil: Why do you miss them? Do they not sell them where you live?

White Antlers

I don’t even LIKE flavored tea but your tasting note made me want to buy this! Great writing (as always) ashmanra! : )

ashmanra

White Antlers: Thank you! Ha ha! I had three sisters here today for lessons and I had let them smell this tea packet. It is raining and thundering and dark so an hour into lessons I asked if they would like tea. They said yes. I asked what they would like and the eldest said perhaps something caffeine free so it wouldn’t keep her up. Hmmm. I said…”Do you want Jaffa Cakes then?” Ha ha! Yes, they wanted Jaffa Cakes but we’re kind enough to say “only if you can spare it” because they saw my face when I sniffed it. They had a pot of Jaffa Cakes! I couldn’t, cuz mask! But I got the leftovers!

White Antlers

Awww! That is SO heartwarming. <3 I do love good manners; they really never go out of style.

Martin Bednář

I guess I will place an order as well! This sounds so lovely!

@ash – they aren’t relaly a thing in canada…you can sometimes find them in places that import things from the UK but they’re just not as fresh and delicious as they are when you buy them in the UK. Kinda like timtams…you CAN get those here, but they’re not the same lol

Ooooh Tim Tams…
