4835 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.
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!
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!
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!
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!
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!
