This is going well with my strawberries and Cool Whip dessert. This blend feels kind of heavy on my tongue, almost as if it were gritty. There’s a lovely coffee note to this. I’m a coffee-lover as well as a tea-lover, so this satisfies both cravings. I think I taste a little nuttiness and a little bit of chocolate. There’s some vanilla in there somewhere.

Also, I looked up “crocant” because I had no idea what it was. Somehow, Google has been of very little help to me but I’m thinking, based on search results, that “crocant” is derived from the French word “croquant” meaning crispy and that “crocant bits” are little crispy… bits. They seem to be used in chocolates and with nougat. :9 (Can anyone clarify??)

With little crispy bits in mind, I think there’s a puffy, wafery kind of undertone to this tea. All around, this tastes like dessert – a puffy, chocolate-dusted, coffee dessert. Oh. That’s what tiramisu is, isn’t it? Well done, SensibiliTeas. Well done.

I have only had Tiramisu once. This is how it smelled. The description is very true to the cup! Both in smell and taste. I wasn’t sure about it at first because it did remind me of a coffee taste but it’s growing on me. Not something I would drink often but maybe if I was in the mood for something a little freaky. LOL

Have you had the Rooibos Tiramisu? I’m wondering how it compares to that tea.

This has a Lemon-Lime Soda minus the Carbonation type sniff to it…paired with a lovely perfume scent. My first sip I was blown away – not expecting that sort of taste – so I gave it a 2nd chance – and it made much more sense. Perhaps I had to cleanse my palate from previous teas I have consumed today. Regardless…I taste Green Tea, I taste Lime, I taste Lemon, and a bit of a veggie taste…almost a celery-esque flavor.

This is unlike any tea I have ever tasted and glad I had the opportunity – thanks to MandyB!

I’m also very excited that a portion of the sales goes to a worthy cause.

Prior to steep smells like Chocolate Chip Cookie with a hint of mint.
After steep it morphs into a Mint Chocolate…no cookie.
It tastes a very little but chocolate and a bit of minty. It blends well…nothing is too overpowering. Quite Tasty, however.

Trying to wrap my head around your discription of the raw leaves. Like a sugar cookie base? Weird!

TeaEqualsBliss

not really sugar…just a cookie or a cake type

TeaEqualsBliss

Actually I am thinking they use the same black tea base for all of their flavored teas because the 3 I have had so far seem to have that cookie or cake type taste but then again it was very fitting for all three of the flavors I have had thus far…

Cofftea

drank Candy Cane by SensibiliTeas
6770 tasting notes

Another nice surprise from MandyB!
It smells like Candy Cane and Cookies prior to infusion.
Smells like Candy Cane and Black Tea after infusion.
Medium Brown in color.
A nice-slight Black Tea taste with a powerful but not as powerful as Adagio’s Candy Cane Taste type taste. It also lacks the weird Adagio Aftertaste…that’s a plus.
I like this one better than Adagio’s!
NICE Candy Cane Tea…nice!

Mandy Bee

I also like this one more than Adagio’s. It’s nice and smooth.

Smells awesome! Like a Chocolate/Cherry Cookie. Special thanks to MandyB for sending me an awesome package full of tea today! This is a nicely scented and flavored black tea and I would certainly try it again! Nom, Nom.

Mandy Bee

Glad you like this one! I think it’s pretty delicious. I love chocolate in my tea. :9
