During the wintertime, I can’t help but gravitate toward more wintery sounding blends. I also visited T by Daniel’s Brampton shop, and I wanted to give a quick recap of my experience!

I will admit, it has been a while since I have tasted a T by Daniel blend, and in the interim, I had the opportunity to visit the ‘new’ shop in Bramalea City Centre a few months back. I have known Daniel for a few years now, and I am always excited to try his blends!

I originally came across T by Daniel when I saw someone post about his teas. I reached out and asked if he sold teas in smaller sample sizes – 10 to 15 grams. He and his wife, Renata, were overly sweet and helped me package up the tea in the sizes I wanted. 

Therefore, while it was a bit of a trip for me, I wanted to see the new shop and support them! The outside of the shop had a classic vibe which I liked with some tables to sit at on the side. There were also pictures of celebrities and famous people who had tried their teas, such as Prince Charles!

When I got inside, the staff asked me if I had visited before. When I said no, to my surprise both of them gave a little twirl and welcomed me! I was also given a mini chocolate bar. What a lovely welcome!

The staff, Sabrina and Kyra, were more than enthusiastic and answered all my questions and provided useful recommendations. I walked away with some new tea blends, a latte, and some macaroons. I really enjoyed my stay, and the staff made the whole experience (4/5 rating).

Now that shop recap is done, let’s taste the tea!

Description: “There’s nothing more refreshing than a snowcone. It’s chilly goodness, perfect shape and icy texture reminds you of childhood fun.”

Instructions: Steep for 1-2 Minutes in 100° water

Review: Another thing I need to admit is I’m not the biggest fan of snowcones. But, with this name, how could I resist? When I opened the bag, I was hit with the instantly recognizable scent of peaches and a lingering floralness. It reminded me a bit of Candied Peaches.

I loved how twisted and curled the leaves, were which contrasted with the bright yellow petals. After infusion, the leaves became an olive green, and I wasn’t able to smell the peach as much in either the wet leaves or the liquor. The liquor was a very light hay yellow and I could see a few tea hairs.

The flavour was also very faint while hot, so I let the liquor cool down. Once cooled, the flavour started off sweet and slowly built up to a subtle peach flavour. I mentioned earlier that the dry leaves reminded me of Candied Peaches, and it was the same with the liquor in taste. I did find it a bit drying at the back of the throat.

This would be a nice tea for someone who enjoys white teas with a delicate flavouring. I have had peach teas in the past that were rather overwhelming. While I had hoped for more ginger or a ginger kick, I think that that would have ruined the subtleness of the blend. While I may not be the biggest snowcone fan, I did enjoy this warm equivalent (3/5 rating).

Thanks for the likes! I have been good so far, which isn’t saying much since it is only Jan 10th. Depending on your location, you can always come up for the Toronto Tea Fest, he is a vendor there!
