This was my free tea of the day since I am still Mayor of TeaGschwendner. It is creamy, rich, smooth, and has a buttery nutty flavor. I think this makes for a great tea in winter, it would warm you up and make you feel nice and cozy. Delicious, I will have to buy this one. I also think it will be great iced but would have to try it first.
426 Tasting Notes
This is a very tasty tea. Not your typical chocolate and cream blends. The flavors are very well balanced. It is very smooth, creamy, and chocolatey. None of the flavors are overwhelming, basically I feel like the chocolate and cream have bonded into one ingredient. It is weird, but in a good way. We should call this Chococreme Tea. I really can’t put this one in words. You just have to try but what I can tell you is that it is VERY GOOD!
Gotta bump this one up. Been drinking it a lot for breakfast lately. Sometimes can’t wait to have it when I wakeup. Yummy stuff!
Always delicious and always refreshing, Great hot days. I always get this iced extra strong. It is even better that I get this FREE since I am the Mayor of my local TeaGschwendner on FourSquare. Yay!
First one to review this one. Yay!
This was not over the top immediately after the steep but as it cooled you got a very creamy and nutty taste in your mouth. I suspect this tea would be great iced and I will have to try it that way some time. I will say at the end of the sip there was a very unique flavor that was only detected when it cooled. I feel like there was a good memory attached to that flavor but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. I guess I will have to keep drinking it until I figure it out.
This is my first milk oolong and I can tell this will be the first of more to come. It is amazing and delicious. It is sweet, creamy but not in a rich sort of way, just smooth. I allowed it to cool and it just got sweeter and happier. I can tell this will be the start of a beautiful relationship.
Thank you, thepuriTea for this sample.
I found this to be okay. It is unusually naturally sweet and I can’t get past the strange flavor. Behind it I can taste that it is flowery. I think I need to try this again.
BTW, this was one of the garage sale finds at 50 cents for a brand new tin.
First reaction – “Ahh Gross!” The two flavors don’t go well together. Few points for mint. End of story.
Thanks TeaEqualsBliss for this tea!
I enjoyed this tea however, I don’t think I used enough of it. Based on how it turned out it felt there wasn’t enough flavor and I don’t think I can judge based on my steeping. However, I did see the potential in this tea. If I made it correctly I feel it would have been amazing. I will try again later.
First “Thanks” TeaEqualsBliss for sending me so many wonderful tea samples.
I really enjoyed this tea. I taste the earthiness of the Puerh first and at the back end the sweet and creaminess of the strawberry. I delicious tea will have to try iced.
Great tea…Can’t wait to try the rest of my samples.
Let me set the scene. It is a gloomy rainy day. The house has fallen dark even with the occasional curtain open to allow what little light that may actually enter. I sit here quietly reading with my dear husband tinkering up the office and my 3 year old daughter taking a much needed nap all alone in the quit of my thoughts in my living room. All I can hear is the dull sound of rain passing through the video montior setup up in my daughters room. Then it dawns on me this is the perfect chance to have this tea. It smells of excitement, spice, and allure. Perhaps the perfect choice on a rainy day in Chicago. Here are my thoughts…
First, a strong sensation of “Red Hots” I was worried but then I take a sip it was a flavor explosion, this rooibos blend is not to be messed with. It is loud and in-charge. It is sophisticated. I had the urge to raise a pinky. Who am I kidding I raised my pinky. The “orange” is in my opinion the magic ingredient, simply brilliant. It keeps the cinnamon and cloves from fighting to the death and creates a controlled experience. It is like “Xanax” for teas. It let’s out just enough of it’s wild and bold character without being obnoxious and as a result a wonderful warm tea for gloomy days and cold days too.
Backlogged….What a great find this one happened to be. My neighborhood is having a village wide garage sale and to my surprise I found 4 different teas, never been opened by Mariage Freres for just 50 cents each. I could hardy contain myself. As it turns out the wife bought these tins to display the tins and not for the tea itself and then never did anything with them so I was the lucky one who got to drink them and this is 1 of 4.
It is a delicious tea with clean fruit and floral flavors. It tasted wonderfully balanced hot and as it cooled off I can tell it would be yummy iced but I will have to make it officially to be sure.
What a great find so glad I went.
Thanks again LiberTeas for the chance to try this tea. Unfortunately, I really didn’t like this one too much. I did taste the orange but still the combinations in this tea just wasn’t for me. Oh well, ya never know unless you try.
Thank you LiberTeas for this tea sample I was very excited to try it against my Sweet Velvet Fog Signature Blend. It is rather close in flavor but I felt SVF is a little smoother, more caramel in flavor, and a bit richer but don’t get me wrong it is still very good. Just goes to show that it isn’t just about what teas are used in the blending but the percentage too.
Wow, this tea is creamy and delicious. I can taste the pineapple and coconut lightly and they are balanced very well. I don’t taste the rose but maybe I am not supposed to. Perhaps it is a binder of agents and helps to create that creamy taste. Next, time I will try it with sweetener too.
Unfortunately, I have had the same similar reaction to this tea as the other reviewers. It was AMAZING in the package, smelled heavenly. However, once prepared I tasted the chocolate, rooibos, and another flavor I can’t describe but I can say it was not Tiramisu and it no longer smelled as it did when it was dry. I can just say it was ok. However, I agree with Morgana I prefer the rooibos in the background and the flavors to be the major players in these type of rooibos drinks.
Wow, delicious delivers what it promises. I will love to try this iced I bet is it amazing. It truly provides the essence of a true Pina Colada minus the alcohol. Yummy!
I didn’t get a strong vanilla flavor nor a cheesecake feel. It was there but I had to really concentrate. I usually prefer keeping my thoughts at a minimum while drinking tea. However, if it was labeled with a different name say… Creamy Smooth Chai I would have agreed. Don’t get me wrong this tea is yummy but not what I expected based on the name on the label. It is has a medium/light body, super smooth, not a hint of bitterness, and just mellow. The chai spices are blended perfectly. However, I am giving it a lower point value only because it wasn’t what I expected based on the label not because of the flavor, it was good.
Just got my Box O’ Goodies from LiberTeas – Thanks so much!
So I started on this tea right away…mostly because I love caramel tea and well Gun’s and Roses. LOL. Boy, was this an awesome tea. I will have to get my very own tin and it shall be my “precious.” This tea has a deep, rich, velvety caramel flavor. I must admit I feel naughty drinking this, it tastes sinful. Nevertheless, it is wonderful and a must try. Thank you for sending me this tea.
Looks like a 100 for this tea. I made it iced using my Bodem pitcher I got through Golden Moon Tea and here is what I did…
15 mins at 175 degree water
5 heaping tablespoons of tea
Filled the pitcher halfway to steep then filled it the rest of the way with cold water.
Amazing…delicious..Wowza…Fantastic and I didn’t use any additives.
What a pleasant surprise. I truly enjoyed drinking this one. It was smokey but it didn’t hurt my throat. It was as Goldielocks (Sp?) put it, just right. My 3 year old daughter had a few sips and enjoyed it. Although, she loves all tea. Well, that I know of at least. She hasn’t had as manny as I have. LOL :o)
A very nice, very complex tea with a sweetness, a richness, a smoothness, a slight smokiness, and all the other “nesses” a delicious tea I will enjoy again.
I like this tea. I am going to start with the…
Cons: A bit watery and not as earthy and rich as I would like.
Pros: Still has a great earthy flavor, a mellow sweetness, fabulous lingering taste after swallowing.
I am pretty sure I will buy this one and next time steep it longer. I know they said 2-3 mins but I think 3:30 will work for me.
Overall: Great tea and worth a try!
Not bad, it is a bit acidic for me and believe it or not a get a fruit vibe on this one. Nevertheless, a pretty good cup.
I am bumping up this a few points…as it cooled the floral side of this tea made itself known…beautiful. :-)
