Recent Tasting Notes

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!

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.

thanks again for sending this one a while back, TeaEqualsBliss! I waited a while to write a steeping note for this one. I wanted to try it again because the first cup was underwhelming. I guess I expect more flavor for the price! I steeped for 15 minutes at boiling, and I’m not sure there is any caramel or chocolate flavor here. The malty black tea is decent enough, but like I said, underwhelming. But this is why tea swaps are so great: you get to try teas without having to buy whole ounces of it! :D (Also, this may or may not have absorbed the flavor of Adagio’s White Cucumber: they are both in baggies and this one was next to it! I’ll have to move it later today…I was planning on reorganizing anyway!)

I don’t know why they give teas names like this. They’re kind of hard to live up to.

Additional notes: This IS better steeping RIGHT after the water has been boiled for ten or more minutes, and not bothering with a second steep. There was more flavor… but I still don’t like the fruit leaves in here.

thanks so much Dinosara for the trade! This sure smells chocolatey, both in the leaves and steeped. The steep color is a lighter brown, which seems too light for a black tea! It seems to me that Tabott doesn’t have that much flavor. I tried another of their teas before. I actually didn’t want to write a steeping note before giving that one another chance. This one basically tastes just like that one, even if it’s a different flavor. It’s hard to tell if I’m steeping it wrong, since there are no instructions on their site. But this smells more like chocolate than it tastes. The strawberry flavor is just hinted at. It seems there should be more flavor for the price. On the second steep, I used just boiled water and steeped for a LONG time. The result was the same… but at least it never had any astringency to it. I think when I use fresh leaves the next time I’ll just go for the long steep with just boiled water the first time. Disappointing, but I appreciate being able to try it!

Final hotel tea. I liked it! I, for some reason, drink a lot of blueberry teas and this one held up as a decent cup. If I’m going to order blueberry tea, it’d probably be the bar harbor blend. But I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to pick this up if I saw it somewhere.

Another hotel tea, but perhaps my favorite. The strawberry is more pronounced than any other strawberry flavored tea I’ve had. It doesn’t seem artificial either. The tea (for me, at least) had just a hint of chocolate, which is a balance that seemed to be pretty good. With a bit of sugar, this is really a nice cuppa.

I am at a hotel for a conference, and Talbott Teas are what they have at the breaks. I’ve tried three of them, all flavored (they don’t seem to have non-flavored here). This one, in bag form, seems to be called “Green Tea Indulgence” but matches this description exactly. It’s fruit flavored, you can see the fruit pieces in the bag, and it’s good. It’s more flavored than green, but not a bad cup if that’s what you’re expecting.

LiberTEAS

Talbott Teas are not bad … pretty good for a conference offering!

laurenpressley

I know! I was pretty impressed. I normally bring my own but forgot this time, so it was a pleasant surprise!

Talbott Teas recently renamed their Green Tea Heaven – it is the same product and it is now called Green Tea Indulgence.
