nerdfelt advent, day 2
A tea called Second Breakfast felt like a good place to start my day.
It honestly didn’t seem like black tea at all. The mint and lemon were so strong, the color so light, that it seemed like an herbal. I liked the lemon peel – it was less artificial than a lot of lemon teas. In all, a pleasant cup, but it didn’t stand out for much but the name.
Flavors: Lemon, Mint
nerdfelt advent, day 1
This advent is my first experience with nerdfelt teas, and I’m looking forward to the experience. I think a favorite part so far is you can’t spoil the teas for yourself by perusing the package, since the tea labels are inside the packages of tea.
I opened yesterday with this, which made an excellent morning tea and would have also been pleasant for dessert. The scent of cinnamon is strong, and the flavor is also clear and present but doesn’t overpower the smooth black tea (until you’re down to the very end of a cold cup). The cacao nibs lend a light hint of chocolate. I did oversteep it, but it seemed to come out okay despite – I missed the alarm doing other things! In all, an opening I quite enjoyed.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon
Iced Tea with Strawberry Sweet Cream Cold Foam Sipdown (228)
This is my last weekend before I start my job and my sister thinks I’m nesting because I’ve been cleaning and doing a bunch of organizing. Today I tackled my tea spreadsheet and drawers which I haven’t maintained the past few months and as a result have no clue what is happening with my teams. Now I just need to cross reference my steepster cupboard with my spreadsheet and both my online cupboard and spreadsheet will be up-to-date.
As a result of this organizing, I looked into the Nerdfelt teas I still have left from my advent. This was just rooibos and cocoa nibs so I thought it would make a good iced latte with cold foam. Strawberry seemed like it may pair well but it’s a touch artificial and the rooibos and nibs and making for a syrup/alcohol vibe. Honestly it makes me think of the cherry and syrup filled chocolates you get around Christmas. The very much not good chocolates. Oh well lol
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 :)
(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
