My first loose leaf oolong and it’s better than expected! The dried tea is very earthy and musky. However, it came out tasting a lot lighter and smoother than I would have guessed. The flavors are earthy, woody and a bit grassy. If you’re not too familiar with oolongs (like me), you should give this a try. I enjoyed it.

Tasted more like artificial Amaretto flavoring than real almonds. Could be good mixed with something though.

I tried to like it. I wanted to like it. BUT…I don’t. This tea smells musty, tastes sharp at first then turns super dry. It’s almost like a dry white wine but without the promise of a little buzz. Does anyone want my sample tin? I’ll trade ya!

Using up the last of my sample of this tea. This time I used about twice the number of leaves, because I am discovering that I am too stingy with leaves in general when brewing. I also steeped it just a little less. Gorgeous, dark, fragrant, fresh tasting tea. I think I am discovering a preference for indian teas.

I get a little stingy when I get to the bottom of a tin too. :) I’m glad I have this one on my next “to buy” list. Sounds really nice.

I know I’m too stingy, but I find it difficult to use more leaves. Let’s learn to loosen that grip together!

I bought a sample of this as part of Adagio’s black tea sampler. It’s a robust, flavorful and fragrant tea. Stands up well to milk and sugar, or very refreshing and clean tasting on it’s own.

This was good, but I don’t care for grapefruit. Although, it had more of just a general citrus flavor. (Which I don’t prefer either.) Don’t get me wrong though – it was still pretty good.

I’m pretty sure I am an oolong fan now. I seem to be okay with each one I try!

Another tea used up. I’m going to get a full 4 oz canister of this the next time I order from Adagio – damn this tea is good!

Slowly but surely I’m using up or trading away all my old teas – only to make room for new ones, of course. ;)

Boiling

I resteeped the leaves while I was making supper. The result is a lighter brew that doesn’t need milk (and would probably be the worse for it if you did). The chocolate flavour is still there but it’s more hidden; you have to look for it in each sip.

“look for it in each sip”… now I’m imagining a tongue w/ eyes=P

I’m going to miss this tea when it’s gone (which will be soon); it’s so smooth it practically caresses the tongue as it goes down. I think I might be detecting a hint of vanilla in it too, now that I think about it.

How does this work for resteeps? I’d think the chocolate flavor would drop off much quicker than their plain chocolate tea cuz the chips melt in the 1st cup.

Mitch Donaberger

Bleh. Chocolate teas make me sick. I don’t know what it is about them. The flavor just never settles with me.

Ricky

Part of me wants to take my remaining Ceylon and just toss a few pieces of chocolate chips inside the tin.

+ 1 for editing comments. Excuse my malformed sentence. I need some caffeine.

This tea is delicious as always.

I just ordered from Adagio today and got a surprise: if you spend $19 or more you get a sampler pack of those new savory teas they have. Anyone else feeling brave enough to try them along with me?

I just ordered mine and am sending some to friends for Christmas.

…They make it sound like the white cucumber is new as well, but it’s not. But it IS amazing!

teafiend

Ooooo, count me in! I just need to get around to ordering more teas from them.

Auggy

I so want to try the savory teas. I have no idea if I’ll like them or not but they just sound so odd!

LENA

My order is coming in late tomorrow. I’m pretty excited to try the sweet potato pie and the sesame tea.

Suzi

:D I ordered that sampler pack as well – I’m so curious about the sweet potato pie tea!

Jillian

The seasame one actually sounds quite good and like you guys I’m curious about the sweet potato one. But I suspect the artichoke green is going to induce a few ‘bleh’ reactions from at least a few people.

I made this cup a bit stronger than usual with a bit of extra dry leaf and a longer steeping time. The result is more robust with a hint of bitter tanins starting to come through but the dark chocolate takes care of them nicely.

Added a touch of honey – because it’s not like this tea is sweet enough already or anything. ;) I also skimped on the milk more than usual and it came out sweet but very cocoa-y.

So you wound up with a concoction somewhere between tea and hot cocoa? That sounds so tasty.

Jillian

Well not quite but close! And yeah it was delicious, who needs dessert when you have this tea? XD

Oversteeped this a little I think, though with this tea that isn’t a big deal.

Hopefully this wakes me up at least a little bit. Urgh.

The chocolate in this tea isn’t a sweet milk chocolate, it’s more of a dark, cocoa-rich chocolate, the way it was eaten (or drank) originally.

There truly is little in this world that chocolate cannot fix. Or, at the very least, improve.

Mmmm, had this with a touch of skim milk. It’s so good and satisfying on a cold, grey day like this.
