4833 Tasting Notes
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try!
I just wrote a longer review of this that should publish soon on the Tea Review Blog, but here are some quick notes about this tea. It DOES get better with every sip, but, I am not getting much in the way of nutty flavor as described by TeaFrog, except from the rooibos.
The chocolate flavor is faint, but pleasant. I can taste a bit of the rum, but it isn’t strong either. But what is strong is a sense of creaminess in this tea which is very in keeping with the tiramisu idea. It doesn’t really taste much like mascarpone cheese, but it does have a very creamy, custard-y like taste to it. I am also not getting a strong coffee essence of the tiramisu.
Overall, though, it’s pretty tasty…
This is very interesting. I had put off trying it because I was scared it would be too bitter, but it is “bitter in a good way!” It is a savory kind of bitter, kind of like dandelion greens. It has a very pleasant – almost sweet! – taste to it. Crisp, herbal, and I’m really enjoying this so much more than I thought I would.
Definitely use a little less leaf than you normally would, a lighter infusion is better here. A short steep time is also recommended.
I knew this would be good when I opened the pouch and smelled the chocolate and could see all the chocolate-y goodness inside.
Rich and chocolate-y. Very pleasing. I can see why they refer to this as their PMS blend! Ha!
Seriously though, this is really YUM! A must try for all chocolate lovers out there.
The more I drink this one, the more I’m liking it. It has a very smooth flavor, the cranberry is not too tart, and there is a very pleasing sweetness to the overall cup. Fruity, but not too much. A very good balance between fruit flavor and tea.
And just because I am enjoying this more than before, I increased the ratings a bit.
Enjoying one last cup of this before I send off what I have left to my SororiTEA Sister!
This one seriously starts off like a Darjeeling. Once it cools just a little bit, it demonstrates more Nilgiri characteristics… It has a nice, robust quality to it. Very pleasant. Notes of citrus. A very lovely tea.
