This tastes pretty good. I’m not sure why I haven’t been drinking it more – maybe it’s the name. I don’t associate light nutty flavours with the name ‘Secret of Love’.
I still think this tea is really weird, and I still want to order more of it. :)
An interesting cup to end the day with.
Was looking forward to this tea but was dissappointed. I don’t often have black tea but will enjoy it ocassionally so my review is based a bit on that. I couldn’t taste any raspberry in this tea. It has a mild but pleasant aroma which I believe is the litchi. The litchi blends well with the black tea but I prefer litchi with green tea as I found this black tea a bit too strong.
I liked the chocolate chai I was drinking earlier better than this one.
The spices in this just seem weird to me, and I’m not getting much cocoa.
Like I said earlier, Tealux flavored teas are hit or miss with me. This one is more of a miss.
I’m hit or miss with Tealux flavored teas. This is ok. I think it’s more chocolate than chai and the pu’erh base adds depth to that.
Dark chocolate with some spice, that’s what this is to me. Nothing offensive, but just ok….
This is very similiar to 7th Heaven by Tealux but they’ve added rooibos and candy to the mixture. The candy adds a bit of sweetness and the rooibos seems to blend well with the lapacho and other flavours. It’s a pleasant tea when I’m looking for something herbal. I know I’ve been on a tea tasting binge and have been overdosing on my share of caffeine. I haven’t decided yet if I would buy it again, only because I really loved 7th Heaven and this is just so close to that.
So I’m having trouble drinking tea lately, like there’s some sort of psychological block against tea. Trying to post this comment again because Sinatra tried to crawl into my lap while I was typing and accidentally deleted everything.
So I made some of this today, it had to be herbal because I wasn’t feeling up to a subtle tea and I have no milk so most of my black teas are completely out. Made a pot so I have another mug of this left.
I don’t know if I don’t like this as much as the first time because the tea’s 9 months old at this point or because I’ve gotten out of the habit of tasting a lot of flavours. There is a lot of flavours in this tea and I’m having trouble parsing them out. Hibiscus is the strongest today :P And there’s something sickening that’s pinging at the very back of my tongue that I can’t figure out what it is but it’s putting that shudder down my spine when I drink deeply.
Not going to change the rating, I don’t think, but something to remind myself of if I decide to purchase this again. I think I have one more pot left of this. I used almost 7 tsp to make 850ml or so.
I just got a huge order from Tealux and I’m kicking myself for not ordering enough of this tea. As soon as I opened the bag and smelled, it was so delicious. A milky sweetness. It was hard to believe an unflavoured tea has such a nice aroma. I was not dissappointed once I brewed it either. Although it smells sweet it wasn’t sweet for flavour but had that milky/buttery taste to it. Yum! Now it looks like I’ll have to order more of this from Tealux. I’m just wondering how it compares up to other milk oolong’s since this is my very first milk oolong.
I made a cup of this to keep up on my oolong tasting for Saturday Oolong day, or whatever it’s called. I may have over steeped it, but regardless it tasted like butter. Not milk. Not coconut. Just butter.
I’m not into that right now as I’m already a little queasy today, so I dumped it after a few sips. Will finish my sample and rate it another day.
Thanks SO MUCH, Dexter3657.
This is SO good. I wouldn’t call it smokey, really. Rather I would call it complex and rich and sweet and excellent with maple syrup.
Definitely on my “to buy” list.
More Star Trek before bed and more Oolong. This was received with my recent Tealux order, the name inspired my purchase.
In raw form the Oolong is long and thin in the shape of random curls of dark brown colour. Also note there are some twigs/stems present too but not many.
It has a sweet, wooden yet sugary scent. Rather unlike any other Oolongs I have come across. I would say the sugary scent was very similar to raw sugar cane.
It’s steeped scent is much different now, strong and leathery with malt but still the sugar cane is present. Now it’s in-between a black tea and medium-high oxidized Oolong.
Flavour matches it’s new steeped aroma. It’s sweet and smooth with malt and wood tones. It’s not dissimilar from Dian Hong, only much sweeter. Also getting a subtle hint of smoke in the after taste along with some dark fermented fruit.
It’s just bizarre, it’s so similar to a black tea….I keep telling myself it’s an Oolong but the taste buds are refusing it. I love it, will have to definitely buy more of this for the future. Husband loves this one too which is rare for him.
If anyone else is sipping tea and is a Star Trek fan then here is a video for you to sip, watch and enjoy. :)
Wow. I just got hit with a blast of cocoa. I love it. There’s not much puerh to this, but the chocolate and cinnamon are so good. The chili adds a nice bit of kick too!
I think this would make an awesome latte!
This was from a swap from linnaete I finally got around to. Hmmmm I don’t get tiramisu. Just a sweet rooibos. Man I wish I was a fan of rooibos. There are so many dessert teas that I would love!!! I’ll have to put this in the to leave me pile. Thanks for the sample.
I steeped this for 3 minutes and found it light & pleasant.
I think I will steep it the entire five minutes next time.
After that, I will try it cold.
I love cold peach tea, but I taste the lychee slightly more than than the peach.
Thank you, Scribbles, for passing this on to me :-)
It is refreshing to me, and I love the aftertaste.
This is the only yellow tea I’ve ever tried, so I can’t compare it with others.
It’s been a staple in my cupboard for over a year now, I reordered twice, so it’s not just a novelty liking, me do like this tea! But it’s hard to describe since I have no reference point.
I drink Sencha on a regular basis, one of my favorite green tea. Though I’m a firm believer that people should have their tea which ever way they like it, I just choose not to add anything, with the exception of a few flavoured teas. But if I was a cream and sugar lover, I’d say this tea tastes like Sencha with a big dash of both!
Of course, it’s only to illustrate how naturaly creamy and sugarcane sweet it is.
How would I know what creamy-sugary Sencha really tastes like, I hate cream… Yes, I’m that boring girl who drinks soy, almond and coconut milk, snacks on seeds and gets excited by leafy greens…please don’t resent me, I promise I can be decadent from time to time!It’s a beautiful tea, delicate yet very tasty, just not in an assertive way. Smooth, zero astringency, not floral, just slightly vegetal.
To me, it’s definitely closer to green than it is to white tea. But you know when people say they dislike green tea cause it can be bitter or too grassy? Then this is the one to try, I’m tagging it as «green tea friendly».

It’s been 4 years in the making, but today, big puppy Doberman let me clip his nails. (usually requires 2 strong adults at the pet groomer!)
He is terrified of it, and therefore, almost impossible to control. I stopped trying when he was 6 months old cause it was becoming a dangerous task. Why did I wait so long to try again?
Last week, I bought a good clipper. Today, I took it out for the first time, thinking he would just freak out and that I should have spent that money on tea instead. But Dexter looked at it, recognized what it was for, got off the couch and just laid down at my feet. I clipped all his nails, as if it was the easiest thing to do.
With dogs, trust doesn’t happen over night, it has to be earned. Once you have it, you can experience one of the most powerful and unconditional love…just the way he totally abandoned himself to me today, under such a stressful situation, it says it all :-)
Love your puppies Steepster people!
Not a favourite. I remember the first time I tried this a few months back, it tasted quite bland. Tonight, I got a lot of licorice in the aftertaste.
Not for me.
