Sipdown

I had 13 empties and that number felt weird so I pulled this out of the sipdown box. I don’t really like it if I’m being honest. Somehow it seems medicinal though mango medicine isn’t really a thing I know of. Still, it’s sharp and I’m just not a huge fan of this one.

drank Butter Brew by Nerdfelt Teas

Advent Season 2021 Day 25 – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I opened this and was disappointed because I was like they already gave me this but then I realized that was Butter Brew Number Two. So I was taking my pic and then I dumped the whole glass on the floor. I only got to try a mouthful because of that but it tasted similar to Great Scotch! from the other day. Overall, I was meh about it because of that and mostly sad it was all over the rug.

Advent Season 2021 Day 24

I added a splash of eggnog to this and I don’t think I should have. It’s a more chocolate but slightly watered down version of DAVIDsTEA’s Stormy Night.

Advent Season 2021 Day 23

I opened this to see if it was a green or black tea and was bowled over by the butterscotch scent. It was pungent since I had a face mask on when I opened the package. That transferred into taste as well but only slightly. Instead this was a butterscotch breakfast tea with thick butterscotch sweetness grounded by a more brisk base tea. 52 Teas made something super similar. Was Beam Me Up Scotty caramel/butterscotch? Maybe that’s the one I’m thinking of.

Advent Season 2021 Day 14

I sort of dropped the ball on wiring notes for these teas since I haven’t seen Nerdfelt before. I drank this. I don’t remember it at all. So, nothing memorable.

Advent Season 2021 Day 13

I made this tea after working late on Monday. I spent the day working basically right next to my kettle and I turned it on a bunch of times but never breaked long enough to make the tea. So I made the tea but then got into baking for the holiday cookie exchange at work. I baked until 1 am but the cookies were delicious and so cute. This tea was not delicious. Hibiscus, cinnamon and chamomile – all things I don’t like much and certainly don’t care for together. I’ve had this flavour combo before and it’s just a warm herbal blend that I feel tends to be the caffeine free option among grocery store brands.

Advent Season 2021 Day 18

Made this yesterday during a very brief break in work. A client retained us Friday night and already sent 40 emails and we’ve had 3 calls with them. Yep, on a Saturday, I got to be on multiple calls with the client while also doing work for them…and that’s after I worked until like 2 am. It fucking sucked and this tea, being decaf wasn’t what I wanted.

It’s a decaf green with orange and spearmint. I feel like orange and spearmint green tea is a fairly common offering and nothing stood out about this one. It didn’t have any weirdness in the taste from the decaffeinating process but it also had nothing memorable about it. Fine. Just fine.

Advent Season 2021 Day 19

This is a peach blend and it’s not my favourite. It’s smooth but a little waxy. Their last peach tea was significantly better.

Another smooth blend. Is it because of the size of the sample? It’s been good. Also, this is cinnamon and vanilla. Emphasis on the cinnamon more than the vanilla.

Advent Season 2021 Day 11

I almost didn’t post about this but (1) the reference made me laugh and (2) I’m actually really liking this. It’s so familiar but I don’t know why. It’s good but more than that it is making me think of my apartment in Montreal, which I loved, when I was first discovering teas. It must remind me of something but I can’t quite put my finger on it. That said, I want more of this one.

It’s a peach tea but it’s not overly peachy. More peaches and cream since it’s super creamy and smooth. Hint of vanilla. Touch of fruit. A bit darker though than peaches and cream and I think that’s the cacao coming into play. I need to know why this is so strongly familiar.

Advent Season 2021 Day 9

And we’re back to smooth so I guess the base is decent but unforgiving. No oversteeping allowed. Orange and heavy clove in this one. Feels like Christmas since I’m enjoying it tucked under a blanket. It’s not particularly unique but it’s nice.

Advent Season 2021 Day 8

I had been thinking how smooth and not astringent the black tea base Nerdfelt uses was and then I tried this tea. I oversteeped it slightly so it may have been my fault but this smelled so good and ended up being pithy/bitter. Not my favourite.

Heh heh, the name…

Advent Season 2021 Day 7

It’s been a hectic week and I am mostly drinking my Nerdfelt advent teas. My DIY advent hasn’t been getting as much love but that’s ok.

This tea was quite lovely. I don’t remember exactly why I liked it but I recall it being smooth and sweet and satisfying. And I had fun props for this one so check out the picture of it here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CXNAkIMtMeI/?utm_medium=copy_link

Advent Season 2021 Day 6

This smelled deliciously like Blueberry Jam by DAVIDsTEA. However, it’s not that. Instead, it’s more true to the fruit and less jammy. It lacks the sweetness that tea has. So when the comparison fell through I was disappointed at first. However, drinking it and trying to just focus on the tea without holding it up to another, I decided it’s a pretty good blueberry tea. Not too sweet, smooth, a touch brisk but not astringent, and distinctly blueberry.

Advent Season 2021 Day 5

This one smells like vanilla mint and that’s what comes through in taste. It’s really smooth actually and reminds me of Santa’s Secret by DAVIDsTEA. If I pay attention I maybe taste the cardamom but I don’t think it’s really noticeable.

drank Pumpkin Juice by Nerdfelt Teas

Advent Season 2021 Day 4

Little late reviewing this because yesterday I went venturing way across the city (2.5 hrs on train) to see a friends new house and have a rainbow drink night where we all picked a colour and had to make a cocktail. It was fun because everyone went all out. You can see the pics here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CXG0hD3uC3G/?utm_medium=copy_link

Before that I rushed out the door to do brunch just after I finished drinking my cup of this tea so I didn’t get a chance to do the note. I did post my tea pic though and you can see that here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CXEp_aVuq1D/?utm_medium=copy_link

Taste wise, I feel like this is similar to day 2 in the sense that if you’ve had one pumpkin tea you had them all. Nerdfelt recommends adding a splash of milk and while I don’t usually (latte or bust), I decided to go with it. It had classic pumpkin spice flavour and wasn’t muddied or astringent which is good. But not a standout either.

Advent Season 2021 Day 2

This tea has a fun name but a meh taste. It’s the same as any other Rooibos chai out there. Heavy ginger and cinnamon. It was fine. Herbal-ish. Not terrible to have one cup worth but nothing special.

Advent Season 2021 Day 1

The only advent I purchased this year is Nerdfelt teas because I’d never heard of the company before and thought this would be a good way to explore their offerings.

This is a good start because (1) the name made me laugh and (2) the dry leaf smelled awesome. The sample is only about 1 tsp which makes for easy sipdowns but means there wasn’t a second serving I could share or play around with. Oh well.

Taste wise I enjoyed this one. It’s almost jammy in sweetness. Distinct currant but not overly medicinal like currants can often be. I think that’s because it starts as currants but melts more to a generic berry flavour. A touch floral. Smooth. Overall a lovely introduction to the company. I am currently very content :)

Such a cute name! :3

Nicename and I did very similar thing with new to me company :)

(Sipdown from earlier in the month)

This tea is one of the best flavored teas I’ve had in some time and probably the best caramel apple tea I’ve ever had. The caramel apple notes are quite up front with a touch of cinnamon here and there. The tea smells amazing and tastes even better. Another plus is that the blend is a fandom blend from Penny Dreadful. Didn’t have the greatest of luck with resteeping which is sad because I wanted another cup.

Flavors: Apple, Caramel

I’m excited to be back in the swing of things and starting to track my tea journey again. I’ve missed my me tea time and how soul soothing and comforting it was. I’ve also just missed tea minded peeps . . .

So I thought I’d start with this delight I enjoyed earlier today. I will do a proper review on SororiTea Sisters soon but wanted to jot down a few notes for later.

I truly enjoyed this blend- you pick up on all of the primary flavors like the strawberry and the caramel. The strawberry flavor is a bit in your face but does calm down during the second go. (What I do enjoy about Nerdfelt Teas is I’ve been able to do right around 3-4 steeps with her blends. ) The caramel is just oh so nice in this blend. And the black tea is subtle but still present. My sample was pretty tiny but out of this tiny packet I was greeted with a lot of flavor. I’m pretty excited to think about what a full blown serving would be.

Might be a contender for an order later on.

Flavors: Caramel, Strawberry

Welcome back :) My housemate is having a hoot sipping through your advent grab bag.

Dustin

Are you doing their advent?

LuckyMe

Glad to see you back on Steepster!

Nichole/CuppaGeek

Dustin, not doing their advent. I wanted to but thought I’d wait and do an order in Jan instead once the shipping issues get a bit better, etc.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

Thank you LuckyMe! I’m happy to be back!
