drank Tiramisu Mate by SensibiliTeas
58 tasting notes

This is going well with my strawberries and Cool Whip dessert. This blend feels kind of heavy on my tongue, almost as if it were gritty. There’s a lovely coffee note to this. I’m a coffee-lover as well as a tea-lover, so this satisfies both cravings. I think I taste a little nuttiness and a little bit of chocolate. There’s some vanilla in there somewhere.

Also, I looked up “crocant” because I had no idea what it was. Somehow, Google has been of very little help to me but I’m thinking, based on search results, that “crocant” is derived from the French word “croquant” meaning crispy and that “crocant bits” are little crispy… bits. They seem to be used in chocolates and with nougat. :9 (Can anyone clarify??)

With little crispy bits in mind, I think there’s a puffy, wafery kind of undertone to this tea. All around, this tastes like dessert – a puffy, chocolate-dusted, coffee dessert. Oh. That’s what tiramisu is, isn’t it? Well done, SensibiliTeas. Well done.
