733 Tasting Notes
I know I’ve tried this before but I thought I’d give it another try. Today I steeped this at a lower temperature and got a nice flavor. Lovely dark chocolate notes mix well with the black tea base. The chocolate isn’t the dominate flavor and it works with the base instead of covering it up. The aroma is warm and creamy.
I cold brewed this one today because I don’t dare try it hot. Too much hibiscus.. It actually turned out very nice. It has nice pineapple and coconut flavor. The hibiscus adds a touch of tartness and gives it a nice edge. Very refreshing. I’m actually tempted to try making it a little stronger and adding a splash of rum..
Hmmm… I got this tea free with my last purchase. When I opened the tin it smelled like barbeque sauce…. Ehhh…. I thought the flavor choices were weird. Cherry, caramel, and lapsang? Well I tried it tonight with dessert and it actually went perfect. It’s smokey but not too smokey. The cherry and caramel are light but seem to kind of smooth over the smokey. It’s an awkward blend but it really works.
I don’t think I’ve ever done a note for this one… Well it smells like dark chocolate. The flavor is smooth and surprisingly delicate. I’m getting the lovely black base and then dark chocolate notes that kind of linger. It’s one of the better chocolate teas I’ve tried. I wouldn’t call it double chocolate though… It kind of reminds me of a dark chocolate syrup you’d put on once cream. I think it’d be nice to add some chocolate chips to push it over to the double chocolate side.
