Oh yes, as soon as I opened the package I was hit with a lovely rich smoky smell. Once brewed the taste was equally smoky. It put me in the mood of campfires and smoky bbq meat. I love smoked meat, and smoked cheese so it’s no wonder I love a good smoky tea!

Somebody else mentioned cheese pairings today. LS and a good, grilled cheddar cheese on rye …. is making me hungry!

@gmathis I buy a a double smoked cheddar cheese from Costco that’s really yummy.

I’m in the wrong part of the world … I have never been in a Costco before! However, we’re a little weird … when we do go on vacation (rarely), we make it a point to stop in unfamiliar grocery stores to see how other people shop!

Autistic Goblin

@gmathis Costco is basically Sam’s Club if you’ve ever been to one of those. It’s a warehouse style store where things are sold in bulk like sizes. It requires a membership to get in, but it’s usually worth it.

gmathis

Yep. We’re in Sam’s territory—Walmart world HQ is in Bentonville, Arkansas—about an hour from my front door.

I was watching the Thai BL show Ingredients when the guy made a matcha latte, it reminded me that I haven’t had matcha in quite some time, so I went to make my own latte though not as good as looking as his because I can’t do latte art. Still I’m enjoying my latte but then I went on to the website to order more and it looks like they don’t make the flavours anymore. Sigh, I guess I need to find a new matcha place. I don’t like DT matcha though because their blends are much too sweet for me.

I got my first dose of the Covid 19 vaccine yesterday! So happy to get started on immunity. Today I’m still a bit tired, with a slight headache. It seemed like a perfect time to grab this tea as it’s my new favourite. Maybe I’ll go for the smoky LS next from Teavivre.

Yes I’m having another cup of this delightful lemon and pineapple brew. It’s great right after a large yummy Chinese food order that was honestly the best Chinese I’ve ever had.

There’s just something about a tea when you know Sir Patrick Stewart wanted it on Star Trek instead of Earl Grey that adds an extra bit of Geekiness to the whole affair. Seriously this is some great tea.

I just ordered some of this one! Glad to hear it’s so beloved. :)

ashmanra

I loooooooove this tea.

Cameron B.

To be fair, I would guess he meant the more common smoked version. ;)

Autistic Goblin

I have the smoked version as well but I can only drink one tea at a time. I ordered a bunch from Teavivre so it’s only a matter of time before I get to them all.

Cameron B.

I know just what you mean! I’m still working through some Teavivre samples that I ordered years ago… XD

This is a really nice Yerba Mate tea. It’s definitely got a tropical vibe going from the taste. I’m tasting the pineapple but it’s playing really nice with the lemon. I can’t quite taste the mate but I’ve never had straight mate so that’s on me. I’m also not as good at picking out flavours as others in Steepster so thee’s also that.

So this tea hasn’t been added to the database so I add it! Unfortunately I couldn’t get the picture to work for submission sorry!

The fruit sounds like a nice offset to the mate (love its effects; not so keen on its taste).

Autistic Goblin

@gmathis I would say it’s like a tropical fruit juice without the juice if that makes sense. Definitely perked up my morning and woke up my brain.

gmathis

Makes perfect sense.

Bio

Teas in my cupboard may not be physically in my cupboard anymore.

I read ebooks mostly scifi/fantasy with some mystery thrown in. I should also mention that I read graphic novels from Marvel to Manga.
I have an orange and white tabby who is cute and noisy.

I also hate all coffee flavoured things and yes that does include Cappuccino. I can’t stand tobacco either.

I’m not a vegan or vegetarian while I respect those that are. Anyone who gets between me and my meat.. well just don’t :D
I also don’t drink alcohol or smoke. beer,coolers etc.. all taste horrible to me. As for the smoke, besides the health hazards it smells awful!
