Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel from Tea & Tins. . . . .

Although the holiday season has (sadly) passed, this tea still caught my eye. Mostly because it included mini marshmallows and gold ball sprinkles. I am a sucker for anything that includes marshmallow. Upon inspection of the dry leaf, I could smell the caramel and marshmallow notes. The dry leaf itself was very pleasing to the eye, as it contained “Star of David” shaped sprinkles, gold balls, mini marshmallows, and caramel squares. I liked that it contained actual marshmallow and caramel pieces because I hoped that that would add extra flavor and creaminess to the cup. While I don’t mind when Read More

Stardust from Tea & Tins. . . . . .

This tea sparkles — both literally and figuratively. The loose leaf has these cute little silver orbs that dissolve fairly well in the steep process. The resulting mid-brown tea has a glimmer effect. Looking into the tea is, indeed, a little bit like looking into space. But, of course, a tea that’s all show and no go is a waste of glitter-balls. Luckily, this is a yummy vanilla-black with a little bit of extra spice thrown in. The vanilla plays center stage, and the hint of spices keeps the blend from going over-sweet. If you were going to give this Read More

Yunnan Imperial from Tea and Tins

Hello Tea Friends! Anyone who knows me is aware I adore Yunnan teas, that is why I jumped at the chance to review this one. I’m going to jump straight into the review so I c an get my ‘drink’ on. Opening the packet reveals dark brown leaves that are long and thin with quite a few golden tips among them. The leaves appear to be good quality ie no discolouration or holes, and they were 3/4 in length for the most part so pretty full leaf with a few broken parts here and there.They have a slight smoky wood Read More

Creme de la creme from Tea & Tins. . . .

The creaminess in this tea is much more prominent than other milk oolong I’ve had in the past. It smells on the verge of that artificial milk flavor, but I have hopes that it won’t taste that way! Once this tea has steeped, a fruitier, peachier note joins the creamy scent. I’m really looking forward to tasting this one now! Sipping.. I notice that this tea has a heavy mouthfeel despite there being no additions. I really like that it has a thickness as I feel that it contributes well to the creamy flavors. Besides the soft milky beginning, I Read More
