Backlog:

I ordered this tea because it says “cocoa cream” … what does that communicate to you? To me, it means CHOCOLATE and cream. It doesn’t speak of coffee to me. But when I opened the pouch, I smelled coffee. Ack!

I was pretty disappointed with this tea.

BUT … I am very happy with how Simple Loose Leaf handled the situation! They got in touch with me immediately and offered me my choice: a replacement tea, or several samples to replace it. As I am more of a tea taster than I am a dedicated drinker to one type of tea, I chose the samples. They sent me three different samples to try in place of this tea. And I’m very happy with that.

They really didn’t need to do that, because my disappointment with this tea was not Simple Loose Leaf’s fault. It was mine for not reading the description thoroughly. Had I read the description, I would have seen that it is a tea that has coffee in it. I wouldn’t have ordered it if I had read the description … but i didn’t, and that’s my fault.

So, I am extraordinarily pleased with this company’s customer service! Therefore, I’m not going to rate this tea.

hmmm…. maybe a name change is in order. I was thinking that it was chocolate and cream too.

There are chocolate-y notes in there too … but mostly it smells and tastes of coffee. I think that the name should reflect that … like Mocha or something.

Ze_Teamaker

Si, that would be better.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
