The wife sprung this on me without telling me what it was. I am not sure what to think of it. Makes me think a bit of scotch – so I’m wondering if that is what she had before (yeah, it is)… A bit chocolaty. Very weird. I can almost get the nose of a scotch from it, and definite chocolaty flavors to it. I don’t think it is necessarily a good tea, but it is interesting for it’s odd similarities to a drink it should taste nothing like. Not bitter, not overly dry, just not very good.

Steep Information:
Amount: 2 tsp
Water: 500 ml filtered 175°F
Tool: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker BTM800XL (green, mild)

Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: fruity, tropical, citrus
Steeped Tea Smell: fruity and floral
Flavor: vegetal, sweet fruity hints
Body: Light
Aftertaste: floral
Liquor: nearly clear translucent green-yellow

This smells divine, probably how it got the name, it is lighter and more subtle than I love but I am really enjoying this cup, I drank it all before I remembered I needed to review. Perhaps a longer steep and a tiny bit of sugar would be the boost it needs?

I’m so excited to be trying this tea, another goodie from TeaEqualsBliss! It smells so awesome! Like a coconut macaroon covered in icing. So yeah, awesome. Brewed it’s like fresh macaroons. So yeah, still awesome.

The taste? Well, that’s pretty awesome, too. It tastes like the much loved Almond Cookie, but minus the cinnamon and plus a dash of coconut (so almond and bake-y plus coconut). I imagine this is pretty freakin’ tasty with some sugar and milk, too, but it totally doesn’t need it. It’s dessert in a cup already. Awesome dessert.

Yeah, totally gonna have to order some of this. In case you haven’t guessed, it’s pretty awesome. Thanks TeaEqualsBliss!

It is a mild mango flavor, but it’s a dried sweetened mango flavor not fresh and juicy. thepuriTea Mango Black is still my favorite mango black tea.

I was doing so great about finish off some of my tea samples and decupboarding but then TeaEqualsBliss just had to send a stuffed envelope full of goodies! Okay, so my cupboard doesn’t look near as slim now, but I’m totally not complaining!

With lots of nifty things to choose from, for some reason I decided this one spoke to me. It just seems so odd! Mate scares me on a good day but to blend it with so much other stuff? I’m scared but also intrigued.

The dry leaves smell horrible. Like chocolate and death. Okay, not quite that bad. Maybe like chocolate-flavored medicine? I can’t really peg what that weird note is but it is something that makes me think of the doctor’s office and other funny-smelling-but-sterile locations. Yeah, scared is winning right now!

Ah ha! I think I just realized what that smell is when I was sniffing the brewed tea! Alcohol! It smells like what a scotch with chocolate notes would smell like. And now that I’ve made that connection, scotch is all I smell when I sniff this. The husband is a big single malt fan and while I detest the taste of the stuff, I find the different flavors and smells interesting. Right now I feel like I’m about to down a hot cup of scotch.

OMG! This is horrible! Hahaha! I’m cracking up but this is really not good! OMG! It’s like drinking watered down whisky or a hot toddy! AHHHH! I keep sipping it to see if I will get anything else but I seriously feel like I’m drinking booze at work! Dude, even the aftertaste has a bit of the whooshy, dragon breath feeling to it that strong alcohol does! OMG, THIS IS SCOTCH TEA! And I detest scotch! HA! OMG!!!!!!!!

We interrupt this log for commentator crack up.

Whew, okay, better now. Seriously, this tea is not my friend. Like, at all. HORRIBLE! Hah! But honestly, the experience of it has been a total blast, which is where most of the points in the rating come from. So HUGE thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for this delightfully horrible experience! Whee!

I can only hope the rest are half as entertaining as this one was! I have no idea why it cracked me up, but I’m STILL laughing!

sophistre

Terrifying. I wonder how they managed to turn mate and chocolate into /scotch/? Do you think it’s because it could have fermented somehow…?

LiberTEAS

I have not tried this particular chocolate flavored mate, but, I have had chocolate flavored mate before that I enjoyed (and even had a mate blend that I flavored after my favorite candy – almond roca). I’m sorry that this one turned out to be so terrible for you!

Auggy

I would guess that the barley malt played a BIG part in the single malt flavor. And folks that like (or at least don’t hate) single malts might enjoy a scotch tea? Maybe?

LENA

“We interrupt this log for commentator crack up.” LOL! Too funny.

Eventho I’m not thrilled about the smell of this it’s quite good. You can taste a hint of the ingredients – nothing too overpowering and I’m thinking it would make a great coffee alternative!

Another Tea I won during the Georgia Tea Company Steepster Trivia last month! Woot!
Smells like lightly buttered veggies. Is semi-murky yellowish-green color.
Taste is…pretty yummy. It’s light and green – not grassy but not juicy either. It’s on the verge of sweet but not quite at that finish line. No funky aftertaste – I guess you could say light and fluffy and enjoyable. I like this!

This one is a nice solid Darjeeling! I do prefer it cooled at room temperature for 3 to 5 minutes or so. It is pretty fragrant and very flavorful!

This was another one of the samples that I added to check out GTC’s basic black collection. Eh, it is what it is. I’m trying to remember this from earlier this morning — it was a hectic day. It was a bit on the bolder side, but nothing stands out in my memory. What keeps popping into my head is that it’s a wannabe Golden Monkey. I have more that I’ll sample again in a more zen-like state of mind and hopefully will be able to write a decent review. 2 decent steeps occurred. NE

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

It’s English Breakfast Xtra Fancy, same grade as the Irish Breakfast. Nothing special, just one of those staple tea’s you gotta carry. Our Golden Monkey is awesome though.

Ricky

Ahahha, I guess it does sound like I want to be a golden monkey from that context. You’ve got me! I want to jump from one tree to another picking out tea leaves and peaches. I mean err bananas.

ROFL! Y’all are the best :)

And now I’m kicking myself for not adding a sample of Golden Monkey. Ah, there shall be a next time :)

Ah, I so had to get a sample of this since I’ve discovered how candy-like Rose/Mango tea blends can be for me. This one’s very pleasant from the smell of the dry leaves all the way through the aftertaste. This is like the other, second “Frou” that’s missing from Teafrog’s 1001 Nights. This one’s bolder, but just as natural. I think that Tea Guys’ Mango Rose still holds the “NERDS!” record, but this tea’s making me reconsider a purchase of that particular Mango Rose. It’s because of the more natural, less harsh taste that I’m now leaning toward this tea as the one I’d keep cupboarded. NE

You know, reading this review made me realize that I have a Strawberry Cream green tea that I forgot to put on my web site. No wonder I haven’t sold any yet…

Rabs

LOL! Either you’re super-forgetful, or you love to bait us Steepsterites (I’m thinking a bit of both) Tea-hee! ;)

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

Perhaps I am a bit spacey…but I’m gonna admit it! There are just sooo many teas, it’s easy for them to fall through the cracks sometimes. Maybe if I were OCD that I wouldn’t have missed them….hrm. Maybe if I just hire someone OCD I wouldn’t have to worry about it!

AmazonV

i would take you up on the fast, ocd list maker right here, drat wrong state! oh well

That would be awesome! Oh, well. I figure when we get big enough, I’m going to need some shipping warehouses in other parts of the country somewhere….I’m sure there will be openings, heh.

AmazonV

at least someone likes lists! i get mocked (lovingly) by my family a lot for listing everything, vacation itineraries, contents of boxes when packing, p-touch labeling everything i get my paws on….

hey Rabs, have you ever tried to make nerds tea? i wonder, black tea and a box of nerds….mmm NERDS hehe

Rabs

AmazonV: I enjoy lists, but don’t use them as often as I should. ;)

Also, I have to admit that I did drink the last bit of the second steep with the remaining Nerds I had when I went to Toy Story 3. It. Was. AWESOME! They actually paired really really well. I had thought that the Nerds would take away from the tea, but oh no. I could get addicted to that combo. And put on a bazillion pounds. ;)

AmazonV

Oh that sounds delicious, currently my candy drawer only contains strawberry tastykakes though :(

Steeped Tea Smell: black tea and almonds
Flavor: slightly astringent, slightly bitter, black tea, almond
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: almonds, astringent
Liquor: opaque dark brown

I brought this one home for MilitiaJim to try since he loves almond black tea.

Post-Steep Additives:
AmazonV: German rock sugar, more almond less bitter still astringent, however when i went to add a splash of half and half it had gone bad and i had to toss my cup
MilitiaJim: salt, more almond less bitter still astringent, splash of milk, no longer astringent but still bitter

I would recommend steeping the leaves for less time.

MilitiaJim find the almond to be more of an after-taste than as part of the sip, I agree.

Needs more almond.

Understood. I don’t like flavored black teas much myself, so I really listen to others when it comes to their comparisons.

drank Earl Grey by Georgia Tea Company
361 tasting notes

With this tea I have fully converted to an Earl Grey fan. I know that my EG experience is very limited, but wow is this one good! I’ve had some horrible “Pledge-like” EGs, I’ve had some delicate inoffensive EGs, but this one? This is the most aggressive EG that I’ve had that makes me go NOM! I think I understand my Earl Grey Cream from Georgia Tea Company a lot better now that I’ve experienced this tea.

I wish that I did have more of a background with EGs so that I could describe this better. But the smell and taste of the bergamot? Well, it just seems so masculine, but there’s a nice sweetness in the aftertaste. No paper-yuck taste to be found. There will be a larger purchase of this. I look forward to someone else trying this who can break it down better so that I can understand where this fits in the EG world. TG

This sounds delicious. I agree that too many Earl Grey’s are guilty of sins of commission or sins of omission. Finding an excellent one is always memorable.

I had my first steep of this one earlier in the afternoon and then took my parents out to dinner and then Toy Story 3 to celebrate Father’s Day a day early. Toy Story 3? Yeah, it’s brilliant. That said, I cannot recall much of the first steep beyond it being a very pleasant tea. I agree with Kristin that it’s more subtle on the vanilla side of things, but to me it tastes natural. With this second steep (added 2 minutes) the tea’s sweetness is coming forward while the vanilla’s has taken a step or two back. Still very pleasant. Just an overall very pleasant inoffensive cup of vanilla tea. NE

I sooooo want to see Toy Story 3!

Rabs

I typically wait for movies to be on Netflix, but my dad asked and I did want to see this so I caved (I mean, it’s even the opening weekend!) Naturally there were a ton of kids (only a few who were too young to understand the concept of “shhh”) and a man with a deep voice and low i.q. behind us that sometimes felt the need to say aloud why something was funny.

Beyond that, there’s a sequence that I’m so happy that I got to see before someone spoiled it for me (be it a friend or on tv). Seriously. The cost of the tickets was worth the 20 seconds where the entire audience (myself included) was laughing uncontrollably.

Dawn (life in a teacup)

Ha, I like to relate my tea experiences to things im doing like reading a book or listening to a type of music. Sorta psychoanalyzing my scenario’s with which tea I’m tempted to drink at the moment! ;D

My first Georgie Tea Company order came today! ::happy dance:: The poor priority mail box it came in looked like a tea goblin had decided to use it as a chair (it’s the first time that I’ve ever seen “Received in bad condition” stamped all around the address). No worries though — all my precious, precious tea is absolutely fine and arrived within 4 days of my order. I opened the box, dug through it until I found my Earl Grey Cream, and then I hugged the bag. I think I have a problem. Oh, and Daniel put a nice handwritten “thank you” to me on the invoice. It’s simple touches like that that make me an even happier customer.

With this order I also hit a milestone that I thought would take years and years to reach. Let me back up for a moment. When I first started reading notes on Steepster there were times that I would come across the mention of “lockdowns” because of too much tea or people just mentioning that they have waaaay too much tea. That was such a foreign concept to me and I thought That’s nigh impossible! Yeah, I’m there. It’s both a wonderful thing and a slightly terrifying thing that it happened so fast. I have plans to help lower the amount of tea I have (beyond the obvious one of me drinking it all), but wowsa. I almost feel like Scrooge McDuck at the beginning of Duck Tales where he’s diving through his big vault-o-gold (except I’m swimming through tea)! Next purchase? Some tea tins to decorate and make all of my samples/bagged teas safer/prettier.

On to this specific tea! I opted to try my sample of Irish Breakfast as a palate cleanser from the Orange Dulce I had earlier. I’ve had quite a few of GTC’s yummy flavored teas, but none of the straight-up black teas. I was also wanting a caffeine kick.

There’s very little info on GTC’s website about this tea, so I’ll give it a go:

ASSAM-A-LLAMA-DING-DONG!

I’m having trouble figuring out the rest of the blend. It’s been long enough where my “try Assam, Keemun, and Ceylon side-by-side taste test” is starting to fade in my memory so my ability to figure out the more subtle hints of those specific teas is weakening. On the first steep this came across as very earthy — almost Pu Erh-levels of earthiness. So perhaps there’s some Keemun? Second steep (added a minute) has lots of sweetness coming through and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. It’s a great option for a non-smoky morning-booster for me. NE

I can’t believe they damaged the box and then stamped it with “Received in bad condition.” What does that even mean? It was in perfect condition when I handed it to the post lady! Good thing it wasn’t a glass teapot or anything…

AmazonV

they stamp it at the received post office, so if post office a gets it OK, then passes it to post off B which stomps it, post office C stamps it when it arrives, and re-tapes or bags as needed.

i get that a lot at my home, the people at my post office must be a lot of brutes!

i’m glad the teas were fine though :)

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

Ahh, thanks for clearing that up for me. I thought they were trying to say I gave it to them damaged. I wouldn’t want people to think I send damaged packages out, ya know?

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

This is a Irish Breakfast Xtra Fancy, that’s about all I know about it. It’s one of the more expensive Irish Breakfast’s that I’ve found. I tend to lean toward the higher grades of teas…

Rabs

@Daniel: To add to your relief — I never once thought that you had sent out a smooshed package. I figured that it was indicating what AmazonV said. It just looks like a smaller, heavier box was placed on top and sort of smooshed one of the sides a bit. If I had thought you’d sent it smooshed, then believe me — I would’ve sent you a PM :)

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

Yah, that makes sense. It would seem pretty crazy for a company to send out a damaged package, that is, if they were trying to keep customers heh.

This is VERY good. It tastes just like it should…blackberries! It smells lovely! It’s juicy and very berry without being tart or fake/chemical tasting!

I’m so happy I chose this as one of my Trivia Contest Winnings!

Another WINNER Daniel! Awesome!

I got this one too. Although all the yummy berries I’ve had this year will most likely set this up to be a huge fataliTEA in comparison.

yeah, I hate that tea! You got farther than I did. But it’s for those who like Ayruvedic teas.

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

I think Rabs bought a sample of this tea, and I was pretty sure she wasn’t going to like it, so I also sent her a free sample of a Sleepy Time to compensate.

AmazonV

whew ok i’m not the only one-I figure it was worth a go since i’m always stressed…lemongrass bleh!

Rabs

Ruh roh — this is one I added to round out my order to get free shipping. I waffled about adding it but then there were so many things in it that I’ve never had before (at least as a drink) that curiosity got the better of me. Daniel — thank you so much for the free sample! :)

AmazonV

well Rabs, like thai food?

Rabs

Lol — well, the few times I’ve had thai food it’s been fine, but I don’t think I’ve ever gone out of my way to have any. At least I’ll finally get to do a negative GTC review — I’ll be gentle. ;)

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

Hehe, I love Thai food. Pad Thai is the best!!

Don’t worry about the reviews. AmazonV is killing me!! haha kidding. The thing about owning a tea company is having variety. I can admit there are many teas I have that I would never personally drink, some like Stress Reliever that I can’t even stand to bag but you never know when you’ll have a customer who loves medicinal herbal-y teas and will just LOVE it. I personally hate Black Currant, then I have customers who ONLY buy my Black Currant telling me it’s the best they’ve had. I think experimenting to find what we like and what we don’t like is half the fun of drinking gourmet tea. The average person goes threw their life eating many different types of food and yet we tend to stick to only a few types of drinks. It’s nice when entering the world of tea to know that there are over 30,000 different types of tea and you could have a different one for every different meal you eat! I love the reviews, they are honest and I take them all to heart.

AmazonV

I know i’m vicious, vicious! call me the queen of the picky eaters, well steepers
