94 Tasting Notes
Yesterday my sweet mom decided to get me a little Valentine’s Day present – the new design Perfect Mug from Davids. :) She also treated me to a small sample of this tea and Cherry Blossom. I just love my mom to death despite everything.
As for this tea…not bad, I don’t mind it. Reminds me of a very sweet and woody After Eight chocolate mint. Unfortunately my stomach isn’t really agreeing with it right now – I feel a little queasy. :(
Gotta run though – longer review to follow with my next tasting.
Eh…first off, white tea and green tea don’t usually get along with me. So I took a real big chance trying this – I figured maybe I won’t like it.
The tea is super flowery tasting, and I can definitely taste cherry. It’s not cloying at first but I still find it hard to keep drinking my cup. The entire time I was drinking, I kept feeling the tea just wasn’t for me.
Added to my swap pile.
This is absolutely PERFECT. PERFECT.
Exactly the vanilla I was craving. To a tee. Down to the very last drop. Oh my god, this was just divine. So smooth, so creamy…
This is a purchase for me in the future. Undoubtedly. But thank you so much, keychange, for giving me the generous sample!
Thank you so much Courtney for a sample of this! :)
Hm, this wasn’t bad! I could definitely taste carrot, although the vanilla notes didn’t shine through as much as I’d have liked them to. It was still very sweet but not exactly what I would call “frosted” much like what I got with Della Terra’s Carrot Cake. But this was rather enjoyable regardless and did subtly remind me of a carrot cake.
Props to Butiki for being vegan and using natural flavours – that gets a thumbs up in my book.
You guys are 100% right – the longer you let this steep, the more decadent it becomes.
At first I steeped it for 6 minutes – the colour was an extremely light tint of brown, with very little cacao flavouring. It was there, but it was extremely underwhelming and left a weird chalky feeling in the back of my throat. Then I decided to put the steeper back in and let it sit for another 10 minutes…and it turned HEAVENLY. Deliciously rich and cacaoy with zero chalk. It was like drinking hot chocolate without additives.
Truly a delectable treat and something I’ll be ordering in the future.
Thank you so much Courtney for sharing this with me!
All I can really say about this tea is “eh”.
I wanted more chocolate and less gritty nutty taste. :( It didn’t really taste like much of anything but grainy almonds, which I don’t mind, but it’s not what I was expecting. Almost grassy. I don’t want to be drinking grass. I detected no chocolate or even coffee for that matter.
This one comes to me from the wonderful Missb! Thank you :D
This tastes wonderfully malty and grainy, almost, with a dark dark chocolate undertone. Almost reminds me of licorice – and in a way, the maltyness comes out in a way in the aftertaste that reminds me of eating rice.
I have a feeling I may have underleafed this however – so tired this afternoon. :P So a rereview is coming in the future, definitely!
Wow, this is lovely! Beautiful orange taste, super citrusy with the right amount of vanilla in the background to balance it out. Reminds me a lot of Orange Dolce from Mighty Leaf, which was stronger in taste but I also adored.
Maybe I have a soft spot for orange teas…hmm, I should get more of them!
Thank you to the ever so lovely keychange for this tea! ♥♥♥ You are absolutely wonderful!
I’ve heard of this being compared to Sugar and Spice before, and I’d say that’s pretty much dead on but without the zest of the cinnamon. All I could really taste was sweet, to be honest – but the glittery effect was quite pretty.
Overall, not a bad tea and something I’d definitely drink again if I were in the mood for a more toned down Sugar and Spice. Really nothing special about it though.
This is actually extremely flavourful! The chocolate is very deeply flavoured, with dark undertones and a little tiny bit of spice from the chai. It feels almost creamy without any cream. Super rich!
This tastes better and richer than a lot of the loose leaf higher grade quality chocolate teas I’ve had – I’m pleasantly surprised. Extremely surprised, actually.
Thank you Missb for sending me an almost entire box of this! Yaaay!
