This is my first Herbal Infusions blend that I’ve tried, and I am just pleased as punch!

It’s dark and rich and sweet and makes me think I don’t need H&S’s SoHo or Florence because the coconut and hazelnut in this are fantastic, and I love the coffee beans and chocolate for the mocha effect, all swirled around an almondy black base.

Yessssssssss.

The only downshot is that the sample bags AREN’T resealable so I’ll probably make this again tomorrow as my go-cup for my transit adventure to see Sil. I suspect it’ll make a great timolino brew too.

And I just had one cup and I’m looking at the website and thinking… hmmm. $6.50 for 50g is pretty good, add to cart, no wait – close it! (I need to try more of their teas)

ETA: By the way, this is also much better than the H&S teas I’ve mentioned above because all the flavours come across as completely natural. I’m happy Courtney reviewed this and got em excited enough to sample it.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec

Do you want to try some of this? I can bring you enough for one cup.

Courtney

I also found myself on their website tonight pondering over 50g of a few teas. Gah!

Sil

sure! that would be cool beans yo

Fjellrev

That’s great to hear!

Dexter

This makes me happy too, I ordered just assuming that I would love it. From your comments, it sounds like I will.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Right dexter?! Soho and Florence lovers!

Cavocorax

Oh no. Now I’m nervous. What if I was just in a great mood and rated it higher than it deserves? :O Well Sil can have a shot at it too…

And I don’t really care for my SoHo or Florence blends anymore. I just can’t make them good. They’re either weak or artificial… So this one was really nice in comparison.

Dexter

I might need to break the rules and dig out my package of this. I LOVE Soho and Florance, but I also adore mocha. If this combines all of that…. Swoon..
BrewTEAlly Sweet Have you tried this? If not remind me to toss some into that package I’m going to send you once I get organized….

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I have not tried it! :) and oh my jeezus that would be so awesome of you!!! Eeeek!

Dexter

You got it, I’m steeping some right now. It smells amazing!!!

caile

Better than Soho and Florence – that is awesome! I got tired of Florence as well, at the end of my tin but still have some Soho which I liked better anyway for the coconut but this sounds like it might be a good similar alternative!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I bet Dexter! I can’t wait to try it!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
