4837 Tasting Notes
Appearance wise, this one is the prettiest in the collection of truffles… It is so pretty in fact I almost couldn’t bear to bite into it… ALMOST!
The grapefruit zest lends a wonderful citrus note to this delicious truffle, and it enhances the jasmine tea notes just enough so that they can be tasted above the strong flavor of the dark chocolate ganache.
I think that this one is my favorite truffle of the five that I’ve tried so far. (hahaha – I’ve probably said that with each one of these!)
Starting my day with this… actually, I’ve been up for a couple of hours, but, haven’t taken the time for a cup of tea yet.
I wrote a full-length review of this tea, you can find it here:
Thank you to Jaime for sending some of this my way! I really appreciate it!
I use 2 bags to brew a cup of this, because I think that 1 bag is just a little too weak… I can taste rooibos with the 1 bag, but I was left wanting more bergamot flavor… with the 2 bags it is just right.
And very good! The rooibos is somewhat woody and nutty but not icky sweet. The bergamot is a bit softer than in most of the Earl Grey teas that I enjoy, but, I like how the citrus and rooibos come together here. It’s very nice and comforting and relaxing.
I wanted Earl Grey this morning and I’ve had this for a while but haven’t tried it yet, so I decided that today is the day!
This is really less an Earl Grey and much more a flavored rose congou – but that’s OK, because I really like the flavors that are going on. I love the rosemary in this blend, it really adds an interesting dimension. The flavors are very harmonious.
I received this as my prize in AmazonV’s tea art contest a while back! (Thanks AmazonV!) It’s been calling out to me to try it for a while now – and I finally listened!
This is delightful. Heavenly even! It has delicious fruit tones and a strong floral presence.
I think I shall go write about this tea for the Tea Review Blog!
