4846 Tasting Notes
This has a strong dark chocolate aroma that is almost on the savory side. It is very yummy and makes me hungry for chocolate. Of course, that isn’t difficult to do.
The flavor is definitely dark chocolate. I am getting a slight bitterness from the dark chocolate taste but it is not unpleasant, it just tastes like … a slightly bitter dark chocolate. There is plenty of sweetness to it too, so it is a nice contrast.
The black tea base is smooth, well rounded. This is a good chocolate flavored black tea. Not the best that I’ve ever had (but I’m biased) but it’s good and I’m glad that I ordered it.
This is a really lovely Oolong. The liquor infuses to a lovely amber color. The aroma is somewhat woodsy and vegetative to me. The flavor has a beautiful underlying sweetness to it, I can taste an apple-ish quality to the tea. It has a deep woodsy undertone to it. Some earthiness and just a hint of vegetative quality to the taste – the fragrance of the tea is more vegetative than the actual taste.
A very nice Oolong!
This is a very nice, well-rounded Earl Grey. The black tea is very robust. The bergamot is not super-strong in the cup, but it is citrusy and delicious and has a nice almost-tart aftertaste. Very smooth taste.
This is an Earl Grey that I want to spend a little more time with before I include a numeric rating for it.
Finishing off the last of the sampling that Jaime sent to me (thank you!)
Today, it doesn’t taste so much like licorice. Not that I didn’t like the licorice note because I did, and in fact, it got my mind racing… an Licorice Earl Grey… hmmm… Yummy? Could be.
Anyways… I like this Earl Grey Creme. I like the amount of vanilla in it. It is very rich and creamy. YUMMY!
Backlogging from Last Night: This is one of my favorite rooibos blends. I love it!
