4633 Tasting Notes

I brewed the last that I had of this tea a bit ago. Deliciously malty. I decided that I hadn’t had enough chocolate yet today, so I did add a splash of the Dark Chocolate Breve Creme to this… it is good as a chocolate-y creamy tea, but I think I actually like this better without the addition.

A very good tea, sorry to see this one go. But… I think I have plenty of tea to keep me occupied!

Backlog: I finished off the last of this tea this morning as my first cup of the day, while watching Conan’s new show (I love the DVR). Since it was the last of it, I had the bottom ‘bits’ – and I have to say that this is a tea that should be gently shaken before you measure it to get some of those bottom ‘bits’ that have settled in your teapot when you brew this tea. This tea went from being very good to being TOTALLY AWESOME… just from those bits.

YUM.

Raising my rating of this tea because that last cup was totally awesome.

My first couple of sips of this tea were somewhat disappointing, because I wasn’t getting much chocolate flavor out of it at all. However, as the tea cooled to a more drinkable temperature, the chocolate flavor came out to play!

This is quite lovely for a rooibos blend. I can taste the caramel notes and I love how nicely it accents the chocolate. Delicious!

Boiling 8 min or more

Of the three teas that I’ve tried from Good 4 You, I think that this one is my favorite. I like the combination of licorice and cinnamon anyway, and the addition of the peppermint and spearmint add a pleasant crispness to the cup. A nice little pick-me-up!

I think that this tisane is really better iced vs. hot. When hot I can taste the woody flavor of the rooibos, whereas when iced, the rooibos flavor becomes less distinct and the orange flavor really pops.

It’s good either way, but I prefer it iced.

Oh YUM! Of the six truffles in the box, this was the one for which I had the lowest expectations, since I am not a big fan of Lapsang Souchong. But… in a chocolate – IT WORKS. Awesomely!

Going to write a more in-depth review for the SororiTEA Sisters blog, but, I do want to say that this is really good. I love the caramel-y undertones of the Lapsang Souchong and how they complement the dark chocolate. I can taste the tea, and I love the smoky notes and how they integrate with the rich chocolate flavor. Delicious!

I had ManTeas’ Chocolate Bacon today and it was pretty amazing.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try! Yummy!

As far as I’m concerned, you really can’t go wrong with chocolate. Of course, I’ve tasted a few disappointing chocolate blends, but they are few and far between. This is a really awesome chocolate blend, and I love the coconut.

This is smooth, rich and creamy. Positively decadent! YUMMMMMM!

I’ve reviewed this tea previously here:

This is a really bold, gutsy breakfast blend – and I am not exactly sure why I chose to drink it at 4:45 pm. But it is good as a late afternoon tea too! Deliciously malty. Brisk!

It smells yummy! My first sip – before any additions are made – it was a little weak in taste. But I found that a tiny drizzle of agave nectar really perked the flavor right up. The strawberry and orange make a delightful combination. I can even taste notes of jasmine in there. Delightful. One of the nicest strawberry teas I’ve encountered! I like this one very much!

I’ll have to remember about the agave nectar. :)

Testing out my latest batch (and probably my last batch). Yummy – if I do say so myself. The caramel is sweet but not too sweet – the Assam malty.

I’ve really missed this blend!

Would that batch be for sale?

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
