Drinking this right now cause I have a sore throat that is keeping me awake. I have always loved this tea as a night time tea though. Not as much actual tea in it but a few herbals to dim it out. There is not enough caffine in this to actually affect me so its nice at night. Flavor wise its nice. A very clean taste to it. I tend to brew it kinda long since its mostly herbal if I don’t brew it a while it tends to taste a little weaker than I like.

Used a little more leaf than usual this time around.

Though I think I’ll always prefer the old style Silver Needle, the slightly fuller tasting Bai Mu Dan is definitely a good every day go-to white tea. The light floral hints are nice accents without being at all overwhelming.

I don’t like the new style whites as much as the traditional silver needle, but it’s still mighty fine (how’s that for proper tea tasting language).

After having been focusing on Japanese greens and various oolongs for a while, I decided to go back to an old favorite. I was going to have some Silver Needle, but was nearly out, so I opted for the new style white bai mu dan. Flavorful and smooth as expected and just what I was looking for on a Sunday night.

I’m home alone a lot and silence creeps me out so I have the tv on just for noise. There isn’t much on in the afternoon so I normally have Full House reruns on. Today the “yummy in the tummy” episode was on so I wanted to have something that was yummy in MY tummy. Now all of my teas qualify as that, but I wanted something special. Chais and most of my dessert teas are out cuz of my over doing it this morning, but I thought this’d be perfect. The green tea and the mint balance perfectly w/ the chocolate making it not too sweet, almost a sweet/savory balance.

I’ve been thinking though the issue of chocolate and tea for years without doing much about it. Though I’ve made chocolate chai’s before with black teas, I was given some fine chocolate with green tea (as a bar) and I liked the combo.
The problem is mixing greens and milk.
But I’m thinking of making a tea with cocoa, lavender and gunpowder. What do you think?

What do you mean the problem is mixing greens and milk? That wouldn’t be my cuppa because I don’t like lavender, although I love chocolate and rose.

I’ve mixed green tea and milk before. Down in the tummy it goes =]

Cofftea

shudders lol just not my cuppa. I can’t even add milk to kashmiri chai.

ok… WHERE’S MY SPOON??? This is by far my favorite dessert tea. I’m picky about my dessert teas. I don’t like purely rooibos or herbal teas. I don’t like a tea where the flavoring is so strong that I can’t taste the tea.

The second I opened the tin I wanted to eat it. I’m pleasantly surprised to smell chocolate 1st because pepperment can be very over powering, folowed by the peppermint, and then last the sencha- but it’s definitely there.

I steeped 2.25g of tea in 6oz of purified water heated to 175 degrees F for 3 min.

Once steeped, it has a very pale yellow green liqour. The second I lifted my cup to my nose I knew I was in heaven. It smelled exactly like it did in the tin. First I smelled the chocolate, then peppermint, then the very slight grassy aroma of the sencha.

This keeps getting better and better. In the tin it smelled great. Steeped it smelled fantastic. And it tasted absolutely sinful! I was not surprised with the layered tast profile. The sweet, but not overly sweet, chocolate (almost like a semi sweet) hit me 1st. Then the crisp peppermint coated my tongue. Finally, the smooth but grassy sencha. I can definitely taste the sencha, it’s slightly stronger in the taste profile than it had been in the scent profile. This would be a wonderful tea to use for green tea ice cream.

I was also surprised by the fact that I can get at least 3-4 infusions out of this. I would have thought the chocolate would dissolve.

The only improvement I’d make is the name. Cocomint is kind of misleading. It makes it sound like it’s coconut mint green tea. Based on the name I would have looked right passed this one, it was only when I read the discription that I realized it has chocolate in it.

I hope I can find a white tea version of this!

Hate the name. But the tea is actually pretty good. I did add a little sugar and cream but it is smooth, sweet, not overly tart (which the Valentines can be for me). Chocolaty and fruity but neither flavor is overwhelming (probably due to the cream and mambo). Tastes good. Still hate the name.

drank Sour Apple by Adagio Teas

When I opened the tin I could definitely smell the sour apple. It took all I had not to eat it:) I steeped one heaping teaspoons in 6oz boiled purified water for 5 min. It had a bright red liquor from the cranberries. For a minute I even thought that I had mistakenly steeped this tisane in boiling cranberry juice and I was even more convinced of it when I took my 1st sip. This tisane tastes nothing like green apple, cran apple at best. It tastes like the hot cranberry juice I thought I steeped it in. False advertising alert! Don’t get me wrong, if you’re looking for a cranberry herbal tisane it is VERY good, but you will be very disappointed if you expect it to taste like it the title
