The Liberator – Java Tea Co. – 2/6/14
2 tsp, 3 minutes
Alright it smells like coffee. I was curious so I made a cup. Tastes like coffee too. Too bad I don’t like coffee. There’s a bit of chocolate but otherwise coffee coffee coffee. Poured the rest out.
I think perhaps, these Java Tea Co. teas are just not the tea for me. It’s not to much the tasting like coffee, since i do love a good coffee, but i just don’t like the way the flavours mesh together. Tastybrew sent this one my way, and while i don’t hate it, i don’t like it much and i’m trying not to keep teas around that i don’t like. So this is getting tossed in the swap box in case any of the girls here want to try it out. Maybe they’ll find a happy place with this one. Thanks though tastybrew! glad i got the chance to try all of these :)
Sipdown! Lol I’m like an addict who just can’t stop….plus I’m soooooooooo bored. I’m about to crack open my box set of Roald Dahl books to see how many of them i can read tonight since I’ve watched a lot of TV.
Trying this one again, I think I’ve landed on being ok with this brew, though I’d rather just drink coffee. The flavour isn’t bad, but for something like this, I’d really rather just have that delicious coffee flavour…coffee…chocolate……mmmmm
Thanks for sharing though tastybrew! I was super curious about these ones!
Thank you so much Shelley Lorraine, for the samples you sent me a while back. This one is interesting because it is rooibos mixed with green tea (that must be hojicha if it doesn’t get bitter after six minutes.) I really love it. It tastes like a cappuccino somehow. And the rooibos doesn’t scratch my throat at all…. I can’t even tell its a rooibos. However, the second steep tastes a bit like tobacco, so the first cup was way better. But this one is dreamy. It’s sweet and somehow the steep color is dark, even though it is a blend that intentionally avoided caffeine. I’ll savor this sample!
I didn’t love Java Tea Co’s Revolutionary as much as I expected to UNTIL I brewed it in a mocha pot, as recommended. The vanilla flavoring was so much stronger the second time around. If you’ve got a mocha pot, use it to brew your Java Tea. Use it to brew ALL your tea. If you don’t have one, get one! Purchasing a bunch more of this tea for my whole family to try.
WOW. Java Tea Co’s Revolutionary is… revolutionary. An incredible vanilla latte replica, but way, way healthier. By far my new favorite loose leaf tea. A friend of mine told me about Java Tea Co as we’d been talking about healthier alternatives to coffee. Excited to see what’s next for Java, but for now—I’m a Revolutionary man.
Thanks for sending this one Shelley Lorraine! I was having a tough time deciding a tea this morning so I might have waited for this one to cool too long. (I should really start picking a tea before I boil the water.) When I saw the HUGE chocolate pieces, I just knew it had to be boiling. I tried one of the chocolate pieces and it was actually delicious. Again, I thought by green tea they meant actual green tea and not the roasted again. I can’t really tell which it is, since after steeping I did see some green leaves and not the roasted ones. It doesn’t taste green and it would make sense it would be the roasted leaves. It was tough to see them in the package, since the blend is mostly chocolate and rooibos. But the flavor is nice! I really like it. It’s very smooth and the flavors really blend well together for me. It’s malty chocolatey goodness! The barley adds a nice flavor too. I don’t know why they avoided black tea in this one if there is so much chocolate… there is still caffeine here anyway. But I’ll really savor the rest of my little pouch of this!
This is the third Java Tea Co., coffee-wannabe blend that I received from TastyBrew. Of the three, I like this one the least. I can definitely detect the attempts at a coffee clone (if it’s going for mocha, epic fail!), but it just came out all wrong. It tastes like someone spilled some sort of fruit juice (or something, I don’t know) into a cup of perfectly good coffee. I’m not really picking up the chocolate flavor, but the almond is going strong.
I made this one yesterday when I was sampling a couple of others as well. This one came to me from TastyBrew. Of the three I sampled at the time (incl. Disney Mad Hatter and Java Tea Co Revolutionary) I liked this one the least. I was surprised at how little the rooibos stood out in both this one and in the Revolutionary. In this one, though, it seemed like the caramel flavor was trying too hard to take over and it ended up producing a strange musty flavor. It was still drinkable, but not something I’d want to have again.
It tastes like vanilla coffee! I didn’t know it was supposed to taste coffee-like until I read the description just now. Of course, with a name like Java Tea Co. it makes sense. Coffee was my first addiction before I discovered tea, but I wasn’t so much into flavored coffees. Sometimes I’d go all out and get a toffee latte, but that was rare and I hardly considered it ‘coffee.’ Straight up black dark roast is where it’s at for me.
My husband doesn’t often sample new teas. He’s reluctant to variety and when he finds a favorite anything, convincing him to branch out is a chore.
I was in the kitchen brewing up three small cups of new samples and brewing up a larger mug of one of his favorites. I brought him his tea and then he followed me back into the kitchen and asked to sample my teas. I certainly wasn’t going to say no to this unusual change of character. Lucky for him he found a new favorite. I like this one alright, but he definitely loves it, so I guess that means it will be a repurchase. :)
this tea is a bummer.
it has pieces of chocolate in it and everything. i dug one out of the bag and brushed the rooibos off before i ate it. and it was yummy. but the tea steeped? idk. it’s just kinda maybe flavored rooibos. and not interesting.
sad. i really like the theme and intention behind these teas. fair trade and not jittery inducing. but alas, it just didn’t work out.
thanks again and again and again TastyBrew!
i like trying new things, and wouldn’t it be boring if everything was top notch? dodge and weave, dodge and weave.
The Revolutionary! how can you NOT love the name.
“Crafted as an homage to those who change the world for good.”
it says it’s made with “loads of organic vanilla beans”. but sadly tastes more like it’s made with KINDA MAYBE SOME vanilla beans. but that’s fine.
truth is. i like these Java Tea Company teas because they are super low caffeine. i seriously am tired of rooibos but i never really thought about adding black or green tea to it to give it a little more meat. a little bite perhaps.
i even have some decaf and i should do that more often.
not a tea i love, but i will drink the entire sample that i have that’s for sure.
THANK YOU TastyBrew!
