On the way back from getting my passport renewed, I was craving something refreshing, particularly an iced tea latte! So I stopped into Steeps for the first time in ever and chose this. Kind of expensive for what it is ($5.25 total) especially since I could have just gone to Remedy and ordered an iced Kashmire chai for around the same price and it’s much more complex. Or for an extra few dollars, I could have just purchased 50g of the loose leaf and brought it back with me.
It was decent but seriously? I could have just made this at home with something similar. The tea itself was a little astringent and the toffee flavour was mild. She also added a little bit of sweetener so I couldn’t even tell if I was tasting the sweet toffee flavour or the sweetener itself.
One of my favourite loose herbal teas ever. I particularly enjoy a cup following my meditation, when I’m in a quiet headspace and have a fierce thirst after hours of reciting mantra. From its delicate floral aroma while brewing, to its pleasing and balanced flavor, to its relaxing effects, Moonlight Lavender offers a near-perfect herbal tea experience. Great before bed or on a lazy weekend afternoon to create that feeling of oasis. Definitely a soothing thirst quencher. I have a cup in front of me now. I enjoy mine on the strong side. Disappointed to discover it is currently unavailable; I came online to check where I could purchase more.
I love this tea. It’s probably one of my favourite teas ever.
I had it in a Steeps shop with my wife – she recommended I try it. It was the first Steeps tea I ever had, and I adored it.
It’s quite a strong, black tea which I really like. It’s got a really soft caramel undertone with toffee notes in there. It’s rather rewarding to find a tea that actually tastes like toffee, instead of being reminiscent of toffee.
Steeps tea have really nice quality tea, and this is evident in this blend. I like to have mine with honey, but you could definitely experiment with milk or sugar, or whatever you fancied. It’s also one of their most popular teas, which really helps speak to the calibre of the tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Toffee
Once again this is a random tea I bought at the Steeps store in Edmonton and was delighted in my choice. A creamy, toffee tasting black tea that is exactly what it claims to be…I love toffee and this tea tastes like toffee. It is a bit astringent, but still good.
I bought this tea at “Steeps” a cafe that sells loose tea in Edmonton, Alberta at the University of Alberta and I was expecting an average tea, but I was surprised this tea is fabulous. I steeped it four times and each time was as good as the first. It is full of flavour…almonds, coconut and I taste lemon, not very much chocolate, but a mouth full of delight.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut
This one sucked me in for its juicy blueberry aroma in the store. It was quite fragrant and I imagined this to taste like a blueberry candy.
Steeping this changes the story. The tea, while maintaining the aroma, loses its blueberriness in the world of flavour. It’s mostly just black tea with a hint of blueberry. The blueberry flavour sits on the fence between artificial and genuine. Unfortunately, I find the black tea a bit too astringent than what I was expecting. It’s one of those teas that misleads you by smelling better dry than how it smells and tastes once steeped. Still alright. Will use up my little tin but won’t repurchase.
Even though this is a mellow tea, the simple flavors are really evident. First the black tea, followed by a sweet almond after-taste. I found, like any nut tea, I had to steep it for at least 7 minutes to really taste the almonds.
It could use a little more “oomph”, but overall it’s not bad!
Like many of steeps’ tea this lacks a little boldness and isn’t very strong. Having said this, this is the perfect tea for a little treat on a cold evening. It’s naturally sweet, has real roasted almond slices in it and paired with a drop of skim milk is like a little slice of cake in a tea cup.
This is a fairly solid rose flavoured tea. I do find it a little over-flavoured and the tea isn’t very strong. So, it’s difficult to get this to be a good, dark black tea as over steeping it provides much too much rose flavour to the cup. It’s a good back up when I can’t make it to Vancouver Island for my favourite Silk Road.
