Plum Deluxe Advent Calendar – Day 23

I made this tea to sip on while doing some holiday baking with the family. We have made Hello Dollies and are in the midst of making sugar cookies. Given this is a cookie tea, it seemed appropriate for this activity.

This is interesting because it has a lot of the buttery flavour that the Buttery Shortbread tea had. However, thankfully here it is complimented by jammy raspberry notes. Still an odd flavor but better when paired with another flavor to focus on. In addition to butter and jam, this also has flavor from the base tea – though not all of them. A woody/peppery note from the honeybush cuts right through the raspberry (which is the best component here). Fine but not one I need again.

I’ve not heard of Hello Dollies — they look neat and sound decadent!

It looks like sort of the same thing as Magic Bars?

VariaTEA

Perhaps. They have a graham crust, then a layer of shredded coconut, a layer of chocolate chips, and a layer of butterscotch chips. All that is topped with condensed milk and baked.

Advent Day 23

This smells very raspberry jelly like! I get a pastry cinnamon like base under the fruit. There is a slight tartness that seems disconnected from the fruit somehow. I keep going back and forth about this. Some sips I get a really nice jammy cookie flavor, in some the flavors are light and hard to taste and in others in seems to fall flat. When it was hot it was really hard to taste the flavors, but they came out a little more when cooled a bit. It does leave my mouth a bit dry after each sip (thanks rooibos). I have mixed feelings about this tea!

Plum Deluxe Advent Calendar – Day 23

Ooh, another linzer tea! I have the one from Dessert by Deb, so it’ll be interesting to compare. I’m not sure I understand the mix of bases here, but I steeped it like a black tea.

Hmm, well I do get cookie from this, and it has a nice buttery sweetness to it. A hint of raspberry in the background maybe? And there’s a teeny bit of sweet cinnamon as well.

It’s a bit thin overall, though. I don’t really get the black tea here, as I can’t taste it at all. Why not just make it a honeybush/rooibos blend? That being said, I’m not really getting much flavor from those two either here. I expect the honeybush is contributing to the cookie-ness, though.

It’s very drinkable and went down quickly, but the flavor and the base are both too light overall, and it comes out tasting a bit bland. Also, needs more raspberry!

Happy Festivus!

Brewed in my “take to work” thermos. I am getting a buttery aroma that I didn’t even get from the Buttery Shortbread Cookies tea, and a sweet raspberry smell, but once again, that peppery scent from the honeybush. This has black tea, green rooibos, and honeybush… are all of those really necessary?

I am getting a bit of a buttery note and a raspberry jam vibe from the flavor, so I definitely see what they are going for. Maybe a very subtle nuttiness, too. And I am tasting the pepper, though a bit lighter this time than in some of their other blends (probably from the honeybush being cut so much). But the base feels a bit thin. Even drinking it, I’m confused what the black tea, green rooibos, and honeybush together are really contributing. I can’t even taste the black tea, and the fact it was labeled as a black tea is why I chose to brew it as my “work” cuppa (caffeine!) It just… feels like an herbal tisane to me, if that makes sense?

I like the flavor on this one, I just think the base likely needs some further tweaking.

It seemed to me that Plum Deluxe does a lot of base mixing, which I don’t really love either. At least these bases are typically steeped at the same temperature, but like you said, it seems unnecessary.

Ah ya, I dislike black/green base blends because of the water temperature issue. Mainly here it’s just that I can’t see what all the different teas are doing for the flavor/texture of the blend. But maybe that’s just me, I by no means have eastkyteaguy’s God Tongue! ;-)

Thanks! Other than me Airing my Grievances to the cat, it was a rather quiet and uneventful evening, but very pleasant. :-)
