YUM! I’m really liking this. The black tea base is very solid; a good strong black tea. There is a hint of bitterness that I taste but it is not a lot of bitterness and I don’t find it off-putting. Somehow it works well with the chocolate notes, accenting the bitter-sweet taste of the cacao nibs. The hazelnut flavor develops as I sip, starting out rather weak, but, now that I’m to the mid-cup point, I find the hazelnut flavor emerging and it’s delightful. The caramel tones are probably the strongest of the three flavorings.

Overall, a very tasty cup of tea. I think the next time I brew this, though, I shall shorten the brew time just a bit (2 minutes instead of 2 1/2 in my breville) to see if that helps eliminate any of the bitterness. Until then, I’ll not rate this.

Not tasting or making you think of Praline Ice-cream. Silly me.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
