My last pot of Earl of Africa! I started craving it at work this afternoon, and had none there. Went to make some this evening and realized I only had two bags left. Well, at least I’ve sipdowned something today!

This is a really nice Earl Grey rooibos…if you like rooibos. I find this to be a great afternoon, relax-the-morning-away tea. I’d definitely be interested in getting more in the future. But for now…decupboarding!

From the smell of the bag, I expected to taste a lot more of the bergamot than I am…it’s very light, almost a footnote compared to the rooibos. I think that non-fans of Earl Gray blends would enjoy this version. Very nicely done.

This is my go-to afternoon indulgence tea. With just a half tsp of sugar, it keeps me from snacking at work. The flavors work well together. The chocolate is more pronounced than several loose leaf teas that I have. One of my absolute favs!

Another sample of this interesting beverage. My humans think that rooibos should be in a class of its own, not with teas or herbal infusions. Honeybush should be separate, too. Both of these are so distinctive in taste and health benefits. http://is.gd/c2EWg

One of my humans couldn’t try this because of the honey in it, but her hubby had some interesting things to say about it, like… http://is.gd/bYDip

As the single package I received contained no instructions for brewing, nor were there any immediately available on the webpage for this specific tea, I chose to utilize typical rooibos steeping for this tea: 1 cup of just-boiled water with a steeping time of five minutes. This tea came in a individually-wrapped tea bag, which really did not have much scent while dry. However, from the second I poured the steaming water over the tea, I could smell the delicious mixture of chamomile and spearmint wafting up from my cup.

The smell of the freshly-brewed, bright red liquor was dominantly spearmint. The rooibos could be smelled a bit in the undertones. Nevertheless, the spearmint was not overwhelmingly strong, which was pleasing. It was just a mild, delicious aroma.

Even after steeping for five minutes, the taste of my first sip did not strike me as being very strong, yet it was quite full. Whereas the spearmint dominated the smell, chamomile dominated the flavour, spreading throughout the mouth quite excellently. The aftertaste was a mixture of primarily spearmint with hints of rooibos lurking in the background.

Overall, this was an enjoyable tea, but not something I would be quick to buy again were I shopping for tea.

It smells like hot cocoa, kinda. Looks like an oolong looking liquid.
Tastes like a pale green tea with mint in it. Not getting much chocolate – if at all. I’m just glad it’s drinkable unlike the last one I had from this company. LOL

It’s alright…probably wouldn’t purchase tho.

TeaCast

Seems like a lot to put into a tea haha

Cofftea

TeaCast, not really- just look at all the ingredients in chai:)

Eric Walter

I swear today is matcha thursday or something… everyone is posting about it. Any brands to share links to?

Cofftea

Eric, I drink matcha every day:)

TeaEqualsBliss

I’m a Matcha Minnow – LOL – Not really something I drink a lot of – not that I don’t like – just don’t have a lot. PLUS I doubt I ‘do it’ the right way…so I have done bags…

Cofftea

TeaEqualsBliss, how can you do matcha wrong, except for maybe doing bags? lol j/k.

First I want to say that I am so glad I got to try this!!!! Eventho I wasn’t a huge fan…still have to try a new tea from a company I have never sampled before. I LOVED the smell of it, but the love stopped there. It smelled like chocolate with a little bit of orange and ginger. When steeping the water turned cloudy/murky/texture-ish grey-green color. The taste is a little flat with hints of chocolate but moreso ginger. Couldn’t taste the orange. They didn’t seem to jive well…regardless still glad I had the opportunity to try!

This is a teabag. This has sencha green tea,peppermint,matcha green tea,dark roasted cacao,and chocolate flavor. This smells like dark chocolate and peppermint. I steeped this a short time just for the scent and color to come forth. I can taste the peppermint and a medium dark chocolate taste and the green teas. This is a pretty decent tea you can taste all of the ingredients. To me it has a twang or a different taste to it that makes me not really think its great, But it’s decent though.

The licorice root comes on very strong with this tea. I can’t taste the chocolate at all, but sometimes it reminds me just a little bit of Dr. Pepper. In a good way.

Cofftea

Cherry and licorice are the bain of my (especially tea) existance. Not my cup of tea.

So this has green tea,cacao,orange,ginger,and chocolate. This smells like ginger and chocolate with abit of orange. I steeped this up. And I can taste some orange and abit of chocolate and some green tea which tasted good but,the ginger was so strong and spicy I did not like this and could not drink a full cup.
