This is the way you do it!
Everything has it’s place but no one is too pushy trying to get out in front for more attention! WOW! Very Nice!
I was reading LiberTeas “honey” option – eventho I don’t ever add anything to my teas – even chai – and I don’t think this Chai needs it – I might try it sometime just for fun with Agave Nectar…you know, expand my horizons…lol…
Regardless…this is a black chai I could drink again! Thanks LiberTEAs!!!
It was a good chai day – all ’round!
Wow, it’s really early for me, I am still in kind of a sleepy daze.
But I am enjoying my Masterpiece Chai. I decided to forgo the latte this time, because I’m battling my allergies still and I figured the dairy protein won’t help matters right now. It is delicious with just a drizzle of raw honey though… nice and spicy… just what I need on this sleepy day.
I was so craving a cuppa Florence and went to my tea cupboard to make me a cup and there sat my samples from all my steeps and in front was this one. I decided to give it a shot as it is a chocolate flavored black tea. I was very excited to try it as it is made by LiberTEAS while I’ve never actually had the opportunity to try any of her teas I love reading her posts.
Anyway on to the tea the dry leaf smelled delicious like delicious enough to eat delicious. Steeped 5 minutes in boiling water and the smell is still delicious but I am now picking up on very faint hints of the rose in this blend. The liquor is very dark with hints of orange and red the chocolate taste is very good. As you all know I love me some Florence and so it’s hard for me to be unbiased when it comes to chocolate teas but I have to say where Florence has the hazelnutty chocolate taste this one has a rose chocolate taste so they are completely different chocolate teas. Enough rambling I like this tea and I have to Thank AmazonV for this sample (Thanks AmazonV).
I recently blended a batch of this tea (which has already sold out, thanks to some very devoted fans of the tea), but I needed to test it before I could ship it! So that’s what I’m doing.
Pleasant, smooth, and rich. I love the note of cinnamon which is not spicy – a sweeter side of cinnamon.
I knew that I would be staying up this morning – although a nap would be nice – so I decided to start the day with a tea that would get me going. I usually like to make this one a latte – complete with steamed, frothed milk (yes Cofftea, I do have a frother, I just don’t like to get it out and use it all the time) – but milk just didn’t sound good to me this morning. So I drank it sans steamed milk, but with a nice dollop of honey!
Mmmm… I love how honey enhances the flavors of chai. It really gives a nice definition to the spices of chai. I know that sugar can do this to (and when I’ve run out of honey, I’ve used sugar) as can agave nectar, but, there is just something so perfect about honey and chai.
Ahhh… I love my Breakfast Blend!
I really didn’t want to get up this morning! Fortunately, I have my Breakfast Blend to get me going. I have only taken a few sips but already I’m starting to feel more lively.
Nice bold flavor with a delightfully smooth vanilla touch! Mmmmmm!
More backlogging… Once the seasonal allergies hit, they hit me hard! After I have some caffeine, I usually reach for this to help alleviate the symptoms. I don’t always log it, though, because it is more like routine for me starting by about mid-February and on through about May or June.
Lovely minty taste. I’m not a particular fan of herbal blends for the most part, but I like this one. The mint gives it a nice flavor, and by the time I’ve emptied the cup, my symptoms are beginning to subside and that is a definite plus.
Good Morning, and for those of you who celebrate it: Happy Easter! For those who do not… happy Spring! It doesn’t seem much like spring to me lately, we’ve been having cold, wet, dreary weather here in the Pacific NorthWET!
A bit of a backlog – I started my morning with a bit of breakfast blend, much the way I do most mornings. I like the way it prepares me for the day. Deliciously bold, with a sweet note of vanilla. YUM!
Amount: 2 tsp
Water: Zarafina 2c
Tool: Zarafina 2c black-loose-med
Dry Leaf Smell: Coco, smoky, sweet
Steeped Tea Smell: Light coco, Black tea, Sweet
Flavor: black tea, hint of dark chocolate
Liquor: opaque dark brown like coffee
If your expecting milk chocolate this is not your tea, it’s more a dark chocolate.
Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, sweeter
Marginally better, but really, it’s lightly coco black tea, good but not amazing. Looking at the other steepster reviews got me all giddy. I was originally afraid I would love the tea and be devastated at it no longer being available. Luckily it’s a good cup of tea, but I’ll be fine without (Florence will see me though).
Resteep: same as first
Since it’s getting later, I figured I’d slow things down a little and drink something with a little (or no!) caffeine. I love my Starry Night blend. Green rooibos, which I prefer over the red, with delightful fruit flavors – peach and mango are the most prominent.
Yum! I love my caramel tea!
The flavor is rich and smooth, but with a bold base – a touch of malt that really goes nicely with the caramel notes. Not super sweet – even though I named it as such… I was thinking of Axl Rose at the time! It has a nice sweetness though but one that I like to accent with a bit of raw sugar to bring out some of the richer notes of the caramel.
I think I may have nabbed the last of this, and I’m glad I got a chance to try it. :-)
I am about to start a chocolate tea frenzy. I have a number of different varieties that have arrived in the last couple of days, and I am sorely tempted to lock myself in a room and drink them seriatim until I achieve a state of enlightenment or pop, whichever comes first. But given the realities of reality, and the fact that I’ve become more caffeine sensitive over the years, that’s not happening.
Since I don’t yet have anything to compare this to I am not going to give a numerical rating at this time, but I will say that this is an adorable little tea — the rose petals give it a very sweet and cuddly look and are soothing to watch as they drift placidly in the water while they steep. They seem to contribute a slight sweetness and softness to this blend, though they aren’t something I can distinguish by taste individually. But that’s ok, because the main attraction here is the chocolate, and that is present in spades. Nice job, LIBER Teas.
A bit of a backlog here – I started the morning with a cup of my Allergi-TEA. My allergies are in full swing. I wake up with my eyes swollen, my throat feeling a bit like sandpaper, and coughing, sneezing, and just basically miserable. My Allergi-TEA really helps me feel human again. Soothes the throat, calms the coughing, and my eyes don’t itch any more. For that alone, I am giving it a perfect score this time.
A little bit of a backlog here – I started my morning with this instead of my Breakfast Blend. My allergies are in full swing and I needed to start fighting them immediately.
Nice, bright flavor. More importantly, my eyes don’t itch now, and neither does my throat. I am feeling so much better!
My morning cuppa. Yes… I realize it’s noon, but, I just woke up so… this is my morning!
Smooth yet robust enough to help me shake off the slumbers and face the day! I generally add just a dollop of honey and sometimes a splash of warmed milk, but this time, I’m not going latte – just honey. And it’s oh so good! The vanilla is soft, I really like how this flavor develops in the cup. Starts out soft, and continues to build as I make my way down to the last drop.
Well, I just sold the very last of this that I had available for sale, so I’m down to my own personal stash! To celebrate, I decided to brew a cup! YUMMY!
This is without a doubt my favorite chocolate tea. I probably sound biased as I say that, but, really, this is the tea that started it for me because I was trying to recreate a tea that I had fallen in love with many years ago, and the place where I got it went out of business. I tried a lot of other chocolate blends along the way, and a lot of others since then – many are good, some are VERY good… but none are as good as this. THIS is as good as it gets. Period!
Smooth, rich, creamy, delicious! LOVE IT!
Since allergy season has arrived (for me, anyways), it’s time for me to break out the artillery and fight the symptoms. I love my Allergi-TEA.
It has a clean, peppermint-y flavor. More importantly though, is that it really helps with the symptoms. I add a dollop of raw, locally harvested honey which also helps considerably.
So, along with my daily Oolong, this will be a daily tea for me for a while!
After coming home from my daughter’s school – today was “Donuts with Dear Mom” day – I indulged in a cup of Masterpiece Chai – my absolute favorite chai in the world. A bit of steamed, frothed milk (I actually use half & half because we buy 1% milk which I think is too thin, so I get myself a little carton of half & half for my tea) and honey make this the nicest cup of chai available anywhere (except for maybe India!)
Now that I’m finishing up the cup though, I already contemplating what I shall brew next……
