sipdown! (191) I’m not focusing on sipdowns during the week but i am happy to take advantage of wanting a particular flavour and being near a sipdown :) This is a pretty tasty tea, although it’s not something i need in my cupboard all the time. I like the blend of the chocolate and almond in this one, smoothed out by the caramel taste. thanks dinosara!

I’m jealous of all your sipdowns!

I can’t tell you how long i’ve been waiting to try the talbott teas. It’s a little hard to justify buying an entire tin, especially since the shipping seems to border on the ridiculous any time that i’ve checked.

I am a fan of this one, though truth be told i accidentally let it get a bit on the cold side before drinking it, so i’m glad i have more to try again. The chocolate is the kind of chocolate i like in a tea – not the della terra kind. The base is still present in the tea but doesn’t overpower the flavours so i can still taste the chocolate, caramel, almond coming through. yep this is a nice one!

My tin is getting a little long in the tooth, so I blew several spoonsful on a cold steep in the fridge. Not so much. I’m OK with chilled rooibos, this particular blend doesn’t handle it well. Too tart for my liking and smelled a little like stinky shoes.

Warm, it’s fine. Orangey, creamy, little tart but not obnoxiously so like it was this afternoon.

Sil

hot brew then cool it?

gmathis

Probably—that works better with greens, also. And there’s a good measure of hibiscus in this. Hibiscus never does what I want it to.

Sil

Heh this sounds delicious though….from the name. I am a sucker for orange cream flavour

Hubby went peppercorn crazy at the bulk herb store and the pink ones were just so cute…

…that I crushed a pinch of them into this nice orangey blend, most often compared to Creamsicle flavor. Their presence was detectible when the cup was hot, less so as it cooled.

Which leads to a couple of questions for amateur or pro blenders and alchemists: 1) how many peppercorns does it take to really warm your cup up? 2) what kinds of tea do you or would you put a peppercorn in?

Sil

nomnomnom this sounds good!

Bonnie

Peppercorns in chai and chocolate (although I use something like a basket and play with the strength…this way you can pull the basket out.).

gmathis

I’m not much of a chai person, just in the dead of winter, but I have some Belgian Chocolate rooibos that might be good with a kick…

This is is a very nice interpretation of the Creamsicle tea concept (there are several out there, I know). A little milk doesn’t hurt it a bit.

I used a teaspoon of this, and a teaspoon of Vanilla Comoro to make a “half-caf” type evening tea. It was absolutely delicious – nutty vanilla chocolate! – but oof. I was tossing and turning and tossing some more! When will I EVER learn?

Thanks for that. It’s 7:30 at night and I got a new tea order in the mail this evening and I was contemplating some caffeinated tea, which I never do after about 4.

Thank you Doulton for this tea!!!!!

Chocolate and almonds. Two of my favorite things in the world, and two of my favorite things paired! The aroma of the dry leaves is so nutty and pleasant. Even though it was almost 9pm I was willing to pay the price of having a caffeinated tea!!!! Readers, it was worth it. Chocolatey and rich with almonds. If I had to bet, I would say an Indian black tea base. It was a little weak (which is a good thing at 9pm!!!) – next time I’m going to add a little more leaves to the pot. All you need for dessert with some milk and sugar. I would serve this to company in a heartbeat!

This is one of my faves!

I find all of the Talbott teas intolerably weak.

I got some of this tea from TeaEqualsBliss thank you so much! I had a cup of this tea earlier. Dry you can see the green tea and alot of dried fruit which is pretty. This taste like strawberry with just abit of tartness and mabe abit of raspberry and green tea. I think this tea is very good.

I want to like this tea more than I actually do. I read the other tasting notes and tried making it again and doubled the amount of leaf. It was better than the first time I made it, but I was still disappointed in this one. I had just purchased a Chocolate Strawberry at my local tea shop (I am not sure who makes it) that was very good, but I was expecting this one to be even better-it was not. I will not be purchasing this one again :( I really like there Luscious lemon meringue tea though and the caramel sundae one is not bad either. So I guess two out of three isnt bad.

I overwhelmed this with milk and brown sugar, sadly. Gonna try it again without.

Full review on March 3rd on http://sororiteasisters.com/ here are the snippits:

I have not had many Talbott’s Teas – honestly I don’t know if I have had any. This was a great introduction to the brand as I do enjoy this tea.

Caramel Sundae Escape from Talbott’s Tea is a mellow, caramel tea that has absolutely no astringency or bitterness. It is sweet but not overly so. The chocolate notes are slight, if you are really wanting chocolate decadence this may not be the exact tea for you but the chocolate notes are present. This is by far more a caramel tea, and after all it is named Caramel Sundae Escape. However it is part of the Chocolate Lover’s collection so some may be a little disappointed it is not more chocolatey!

Regardless, this is a really delicious cup! I was surprised at just how many bits were in the blend, plenty of caramel chunks for sure!

Sil

i can’t wait for my swap/box from TEB – pretty sure she put in a few talbott teas for me to try. woot woot!

Azzrian

Ohhh nice!!!! :)

Sil

i mean..she hasn’t mailed it yet lol because i told her not to worry about it until “whenever” but it’s out there..waiting to come to me…“someday” hahaha When i get home i’m also going to put together my care package for you guys. I will likely send it to one of you since i know you shift things around between the 3 of you fairly often. But i have teas for all three sisters :)

Azzrian

Wow SIl how really totally sweet of you!

Sil

You guys are good to the noobies and others. :) I just need to get organized once i’m home with all my swaps and tea cupboard and the like.

Azzrian

lol let me know if you figure out the trick to making that happen! ;)
I work on it daily.
Bought another tea cup at an antique store yesterday! WHY? when I have at least half of my collection hidden away. Now I had to sneak this into my cabinet lol it never stops between the tea, the accessories, well you know … :)

I received a sampling box of Talbot teas for Christmas that I forgot to input to my cupboard and this one was the first of the lot of them that I tried. I rarely find myself disappointed in a breakfast tea. From English to Irish and now Paris, they are all delectable. Paris Breakfast, while very similar to both it’s British Isles cousins, has more in common with English Breakfast in my opinion. In short, it’s a very good cuppa. _

Sipdown, 244. I am sipping down this and another fruity rooibos that I got in a swap, although I no longer remember exactly from whom. Seems like it could have been an envelope from TeaEqualsBliss? In any case, thanks who ever sent it.

I am coming to the conclusion that fruity rooibos is not for me. Generically tart fruity? Check. Smells like cough medicine? Check. Oh well, I know what to avoid, now.

Behold a tea which actually manages to smell like chocolate. I could sip this after a yoga session or at night because the black tea is quite subdued by its small quantity in the teabag. I had it on a cold day after wheatgrass which imparts an effervescence to the maltiness of the leaves and the moist strawberry. Then again I could have imagined all of that…

It really is a wonderful tea, but not what I expected. I don’t really taste any caramel or cocoa or salt, but it’s such a fine, slightly smokey, black tea, I don’t mind at all. There some very subtle hints that do mellow it out and maybe a touch of vanilla that leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste that makes it wonderfully smooth . If your looking for a Tea Forte type dessert tea with cocoa, this isn’t it, but I must say I am loving it anyway. It smells like a wonderfully, mellow, smokey black tea. I usually like black teas with milk, but I like this plain. I like the small tins. No extra wasted empty space in them and they stack nice.

Yumm!!! Can I say new favorite! This tea smells and tastes just like creamsicles! I love it. It is a little bland compared to the smell without honey, but add a tsp of raw honey and it is delicious! I could drink this tea everyday! I haven’t tried it cold yet, but I imagine it would make a great summer time iced tea.
