I let this steep for a good eight minutes. Why? Why not?! And the flavor is definitely stronger – each taste can be ID’ed in each sip. I love this combo. It’s very unique. I did add sweetener which I think enhanced the chocolate taste. Please see other note. Also, no rating as this is my creation from Adagio.
Mmmm Andrew Lee Potts…tea? Oh! Right! Tea!
So far, I am loving this tea. A bit strong at first, but then it mellows and becomes this dreamy blend of cream and caramel and something a touch sweet and mmmm. I just want to dive into this tea for a few days.
Edited to add: Gah! I’m so rude! Thank you so, so, so much for getting this for me. QueenofTarts. I was distracted by my Hatter >.>
Thanks for the tip on steep time. This was a delicious addition to my lunch. I think I kind of like it just a little bitter though. I’m going to enjoy the experimentation, though.
I’ve decided that this is some kind of wonderful. Something about the roasted almond flavor when mixed with honey and creamer. The coconut just kind of skims long the top. Very wonderful morning.
2 cups earlier! Hit the spot today!
I let this steep longer than I should have, out of curiosity, and I think the marshmallow flavor was even more pronounced. I do just love this blend – even if it wasn’t “mine.” :) I needed the extra kick in the pants this afternoon and this worked perfectly!
Another 2 cups today :) Backlogging…
Thanks to the generosity of KITT, I am enjoying this today…
Minty green with a touch of chocolate, I do mean a touch, very understated.
I like it. Like many I have seen post, I am not too sure what I think about chocolate tea, but this is just right. The green and mint are center stage.
LOVE this one! :) Sweet, then tart (in a good way), each sip tastes like summer. YUMS!
Wow, the first sip is so smooth. There is just a hint of bitterness from the chocolate, I think. It could be I steeped it too long. However, the sweetness of the berries show up as the tea goes down, and the effect if very yummy. I am definitely going to have to try this with a bit of creamer.
Edited 3/27: Resteeped this this morning, and with some creamer and honey, it was kind of like eating really good cake. Can’t wait to try this again.
So I’m giving this a little bump in rating now that I have my favorite way to prepare. For the first infusion, I steeped it for four minutes, which really seemed to work. The coconut and cream kind of fall to the back, and you get this big roasted flavor from the almonds. Some creamer and honey kind of pulled that coconut flavor forward a bit on the end of the sip.
I managed to get a very nice second infusion by steeping for five minutes. The roasted taste of the almonds was quite so big, but again, a little creamer and honey really brought the coconut taste forward.
I think I’m going to take a little break from this for now to try some of those other blends I bought :D.
Still trying to get the steeping times right, but I think I almost have it :D Very yummy, especially with a bit of creamer.
I am annoyed that when I type “Vampire” for this tea in a search, “Edward” pops up. The Twilight Mary Sues are not vampires!
OK. I’m over it.
I love this tea. It’s so refreshing, citrus-y and even revitalizing in a way. Probably helped me get over that Twilight outburst there. :)
Please see other notes. I’m normally not this psychotic.
Thank you LiberTEAs!!! I LOVE the name of this one!!! :) And I really like the tea! It’s hearty, bold, malty, strong, brilliant, and I can taste a tad of caramel trying to hide underneath…that paired with about the same ratio of smoke creates a nifty taste of it’s own! WINNER!!!!
Backlogging – had this yesterday while sick & it cheered me right up. Meghann M, you rock! I love this blend. It puts me in the mood for summer (heck, I’ll even take spring, just warmer weather, please). LOVE it! Please see other notes.
Bliss. Caffeine. Both needed this morning. Got a late start, running late, then traffic. Now I am finally calming down…only to have to gear up for work. Grr! At least it’s Friday and I’ve got a happy hour party tonight. :)
Wow, I couldn’t believe it when I realize that no one else has tried this. This blend was made by a good friend with excellent taste (feel free to speak up, if you want to) who also introduced me to steepster and loose tea.
When I opened the bag, the smell made my stomach growl. Sweet coconut with an almond undertone and something that just had to be the cream component. I’ve never had a cream flavored tea, so I didn’t know quite what to expect.
I steeped both infusions for five minutes, which might have been too long for the first infusion. The almond came across as kind of woody, sort of like the aftertaste of eating a large handful of roasted almonds. Not unpleasant but not a favorite. The coconut came through clear on each sip, and the tea itself wasn’t bitter, but it wasn’t as sweet as the loose tea had smelled.
For the second infusion, I added a tsp of honey just to see how it would turn out. I’m not sure if this tea isn’t up for a second infusion or not, but it completely masked the almond and made it almost too sweet. The coconut only came through in the aftertaste. Once the tea had come almost to room temperture, another taste seemed to develop, a blending of coconut and almond and was quite delicious.
I’m definitely going to have to experiment with this tea, especially with icing it I think. Once that second cup got to room temperature, it was kind of like another tea altogether.
Double the leaf – half the time – lovely blueberry taste with notes of chocolate and cream/vanilla! YAY!
No rating as this is one of my creations. Brews up strong – I can smell cinnamon, a hint of strawberry and chocolate. Tastes delicious! Chocolate covered strawberries with a kick of cinnamon. Sweetener enhances the taste. I gulped this down!
