Super coconut-y and delicious! The black tea is mild and the scent and taste of coconut really comes through.
58 Tasting Notes
I’m having my favorite this morning, but it’s with the horror of realizing I’m almost out. I MUST ORDER MORE. I think I let it steep for too long. Anything past three minutes and it gets bitter, even with the sugar, but if you steep it just right, it tastes like rainbows and magic.
Still so good. Much better than a lot of other “strawberry” black tea blends I’ve had. This one doesn’t really over-steep and never gets sour.
I like it, but it’s not my favorite. I haven’t tried it with milk and sugar yet. It smells amazing, but the quality of the black tea isn’t as amazing.
I’m never sure what to call the fruit in this tea, but it’s something tropical. Maybe guava. I don’t know, but it’s delicious.
I have very little new to say about it, except that it is my favorite forever and ever, amen. Strawberries and vanilla and something unnameable.
This is just such a perfect morning tea, especially on cold foggy mornings. It’s milder than other earl greys, which makes me like it more. I could especially taste the vanilla this morning.
This is one of my favorite Earl Grey variations, and it’s perfect for mornings. It’s mild-tasting but smells fairly sharp.
I made this iced today (93 degrees in October? WTF Los Angeles), and it was great. Like drinking cold roses.
I really like this tea. It’s definitely a sort of variation on Earl Grey, you can taste the bergamot-citrusiness of it more strongly than most Earl Grey, so I like it best in the morning for the bright smell and taste.
This tastes to me exactly like my Russian Caravan blend. Very delicious, mild on the tannins and tastes like wood smoke.
This stuff was good. It seems to be Chado’s answer to Mariage Frère’s Marco Polo. They aren’t quite the same, but it’s the same sort of notes.
This stuff is MAGICAL. My friend ordered it for afternoon tea and from the second we could smell it we’d decided to buy some loose leaf. The mandarin is the most wonderful, subtle taste.
I made this iced because it smelled like it would be good iced. I’m not entirely sure I’d love it hot, though I will probably try that at some point. Anyway, it’s unexpected. At the first sip my mouth wasn’t sure what to think. By the time I’d finished my glass I liked it. By my second glass I really, really liked it. It’s refreshing, but weird…in a good way? I’m sure given that it’s named after a popular villain, it was intended to be just that little bit of jarring.
I am so in love with this black tea. It doesn’t seem to matter how long I steep it (though I never steep it less than three minutes), it never gets bitter and is always good for one more resteep. It smells great and tastes really mellow. Thanks for turning me on to this, Sara.
This is a fruity black tea. I’m not sure I can pin down which fruits. The place I got it doesn’t seem to have a website. It’s in the Forum Des Halles in Paris, which is like a giant labyrinth with a 70s flavor. Irresistible has little colored sugar letters floating around in it. Brewed, it smells and tastes most like berry cotton candy.
This was mellow and surprisingly more minty than I expected, but still tasted of black tea. The vanilla was definitely in the background. It was very good for sipping.
I think this is the best chocolate flavored black tea I have had. It was very smooth, not too bitter, and more chocolatey than I was expecting.
This vanilla was pretty successful. It reminded me of Betjeman and Barton’s Le Classique, but maybe a little milder vanilla, a little sharper tannic kick. It’s a good substitute for when you can’t afford to ship over more Le Classique, for sure.
This is such a wonderful, mellow black tea. It’s mild enough that it doesn’t really have a tannic edge, and the first steep the best almost perfumed black tea smell. Second steep doesn’t smell as heavenly, but is still wonderful to sip.
I think I like this one better than Damman Frerés’. The black tea flavor come through more strongly.
I didn’t like this tea hot, but I LOVED it iced.
This was one of the first black teas I ever had, so the taste seems to be hardwired into my tastebuds to be comforting, even if it’s not the best black tea ever. I like to use it for iced tea, because usually I’m just so happy to be drinking something cool I don’t care what type of tea I use.
I love this strawberry black tea. I’ve tried quite a few others and none of them get the strawberry quite right—at worst, sometimes it’s slightly chemical. This one actually tastes like strawberry, and the black tea comes through, too.
