Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try! It’s one that I’ve been anxious to try for some time now! I mean, how could I resist? With Chocolate and Strawberry? YUM!

While I am very happy that I am having this opportunity to try it, I feel like this is a tea that I need to tinker around with a bit, because I am just not getting the flavor I thought I would. I can taste faint notes of chocolate, faint notes of strawberry, and even the black tea tastes rather indistinct. I will try using a little more leaf next time and see how I fair with it. For now, I’m just not that impressed.

Sorry you were kinda bummed. I did notice the more I tinkered the more I liked! I usually doubled the amount and went for 3 or more minutes to infuse…not sure if that advice would help a little or not…

Yes, it does help. I am going to try having a little more leaf next time. I am also noticing that the flavor develops slightly as it cools a little bit. It’s not a bad tea, it’s just not as impressive as I expected it to be.

It does morph as it cools! So sorry I pumped it up too much for ya! LOL :P Sorry you were a little bummed

It’s not your fault! :)

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.
