Tea Haul: Dessert by Deb's new spring collection!

As Asian Heritage Month draws to an end, I thought it would be fitting to share my latest tea haul from Dessert by Deb. I was beyond excited when Deb announced the theme of her new spring collection: Japanese & Asian Patisserie! 

She also added new teas to existing collections (Garden Tea Party; Cake & Celebration), as well as released the first blend for the upcoming Deb's Vintage Diner collection.


 As you can see, I wanted to try all the teas from spring arrivals!

I got 2 bonus teas (75g of Lychee Mango Mochi green tea and 100g of Peach Crumble Cake black tea) as part of the special launch promo for e-mail subscribers.


I also couldn't resist getting a keychain and set of pins. They're perfect for my tabletop tea-themed Christmas tea (I'm on the lookout for tea-themed ornaments all year round)!


Deb generously included these bonus goodies in my order.


I'm not a fan of floral teas, but I actually enjoyed this Blueberry Lavender Angel Food Cake black tea. 

I was delighted to finally find a peach tea that was NOT a peach ginger blend. The Peach Crumble Cake was a yummy peach black and rooibos tea with cinnamon, Canadian maple, and brown sugar!



The Thai Banana Cake black tea was a delicious blend of two of my favourite fruits: banana and coconut!

I love bubble tea and am fortunate to have multiple bubble tea chains near my office. Pre-pandemic, I used to buy bubble teas all the time during the spring/summer.

The tasty Boba Milk Tea is the classic brown sugar milk tea flavour: Assam black tea, vanilla, and brown sugar. The raisins don't actually contribute to the flavour profile; they're supposed to mimic the tapioca pearls. I followed the steeping instructions and prepared it with milk!

Tea(s) I may buy again: Paris black tea by Harney and Sons


  1. Ooooh all of these sound so yummy!! I'm heading to her sight now to take a look-see :)

  2. You amaze me with all the flavors you try, Margie. Deb sure sends along some wonderful choices and fun items. I definitely love Paris tea!

  3. Oh I just love the pretty packaging! I love it that you are willing to try different flavors. I tend to sway towards the ones I KNOW I like. But I am getting better about it. I used to be that way by flavored coffee though. I would not venture out of my comfort zone but now...I will try new things and love it. Of course I am the same way with food and that gets me into trouble! LOL! Happy week dear Margie. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Margie, you have a wonderful assortment of teas to choose from. How serendipitous to have bubble teas near your office! The Island doesn't have much any longer to choose from which is unfortunate for tea lovers here. More and more folks are buying on-line now because we don't have access to specialty teas. That will likely be the way of the future. Enjoy your week, Margie.

  5. Great selection of teas, you are always trying new varieties.

  6. Your teas look great. Hugs and blessings.
