drank Sweet Temptation by Tsaa
1258 tasting notes

Having a cuppa this now and it is still oh soooo good. I’m still on the hunt for a good chocolate rooibos equivalent but they all seem to fall flat somehow. I want just a CHOCOLATE tea. Not choco-orange-strawberry-ginger-mint. just cocoa. Please.
Anyhow, I am so sleepy today. Dunno whats gotten into me. Hopefully my matcha will arrive soon to keep me awake. It is all I can think about…
On a side note, what is with all the peach teas going around today?! I swear I think I’ve seen four reviews for peachy black teas all from different companies. I thought about posting mine but since it smelled like paint thinner, and tasted just ok with an awful aftertaste I’m gonna email them and see if the batch was bad.
Bah. It was free tea, so I’m not complaining!

Funny thing about the peach tea, that is almost what I had to go on my way to work today.

Have you tried DT’s Super Chocolate? (I was going to check through your tealog, but you have a lot more notes than me LOL)

Indigobloom

I guess its a peachy kind of day! :P

MissyMylin: I thought that was a green tea. is it rooibos? my note says green… hmm now I’m confused lol

MissMylin

It has green and green rooibos. There’s a bit of cinnamon in there so it’s not strictly just chocolate. I can send you a bit from my stash if you want to try it out.

Bonnie

You never give a 100…has to be good

Indigobloom

ah boo. I was looking for an herbal so I can drink it up before bed. Thanks so much for the offer though, you’re sweet!!
Bonnie: oh it is, it really is! wish you could try it :(

Profile

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
