217 Tasting Notes
After my chocolate tea disappointment of the morning, I thought I’d give another chocolate tea in my cupboard a try.
This tea made my day! YUM YUM YUM!! Absolutely no bitterness. Smooth, subtle, and delightful chocolate flavor. Delicious without any additives, and would make an excellent foamy tea latte :)
My samples from TheCozyLeaf are 2 for 2.
Update: For my second cup, I decided to make a tea latte. It tastes almost like hot chocolate. Wow!!!
On the 8th Day of Christmas…
I steeped this tea for 3 minutes and it is about as bitter as if I’d steeped it for 10. It has a lot of good reviews, so maybe I did something wrong, but I followed the time/water temp of many of the people who really enjoyed it. Strange.
After putting milk and sugar in, it is enjoyable. There is no way I could ever consider drinking it any other way. Sad :(
On a happier note, today is the first day of my VACATION!!!
I found this seller on Etsy and thought I’d give it a shot. She hand blends her teas.
This is a really wonderful tea. The tea is pale in color and smooth in flavor. The earthy oolong is definitely the flavor in the foreground. The lemongrass and hibiscus are mild and in balance with the oolong.
Putting this on my shopping list :)
Update: The more I sip this the more I can taste the sour (in a good way) lemongrass. YUM!
I really really want to love this tea because I love cotton candy, but I just don’t. The cotton candy flavor that should be there just isn’t for me. It’s better when I add milk and sugar. Thank you to LiberTEAS for sending me a sample so I could give it another go. I’ll be passing the rest of this on to Kim :)
This is a tea I’ve wanted to try for a while. It was so sweet of LiberTEAS to include it in my Christmas Swap box.
Does anyone else do this? I heat my water while I’m blow drying my hair. Then I pour it over my tea to steep and go back to getting ready. Sometimes I forget my tea. AND then over steep it by 10 minutes. GAH!! That’s what I did this morning with this tea. Bummer. I can tell it’s a great tea, so I look forward to my next brewing. I hope I don’t mess it up again.
