The dry leaf blend of this may possibly be one of my favorite flavored black tea smells EVER! A milky chocolate black tea with slight rose hints….ahhhhhh!
The wet leaf blend the rose really comes out and the chocolate transforms into almost a chocolate fudge brownie type scent. I want to eat it.
It’s very dark in color and a little murky.
The liquid itself is mostly chocolate and black tea to the nose.
The taste is mostly black tea with chocolate and floral mixed in – almost enhancing the black tea taste.
This is a good tasting flavored black tea. But what I love about it most is the scent!
I received this one from a fellow reviewer and boy-oh-boy am I thankful for it!
My opinion on this tea is pretty much the same. I drank it with milk this time and it did bring out the caramel a tad, but it also brought out the toasty flavour aswell and that seems to dominate the tea. Still, I like that they didn’t go overboard with the caramel to compensate, it tastes very natural this way.
I got this tea in a trade with Silvermage2000 along with a bunch of others – all I can say is that she has good taste in tea. :)
The smell of this tea is partially toasty and partially burnt caramel – but a nice burnt, not the yucky, charcoal burnt. The flavour isn’t overly sweet (unlike the title, lol) but it’s more like a nice, light, malty assam with a faint hint of sugar. It’s a pleasent tea to drink, but not anything that I found overly special.
2.25g/6oz boiling water. As soon as the water hits the leaves I can immediately smell the chocolate, YUM! Once steeped, the liquor is a dark reddish brown and it smells mainly of chocolate and black tea. When I taste it, as espected, I’m immediately hit w/ chocolate followed by the black tea and then a very faint rose taste that I wish was stronger. The almonds, vanilla, and rooibos don’t necessarily come across as a flavor, but rather as smoothness and sweetness. The only thing I can’t figure out is why there isn’t any strawberries in here, chocolate covered strawberries are very romantic.
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 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.
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……
