6769 Tasting Notes
I know I have had this one before but apparently I never logged it or Steepster ate my note – so – before passing this along in the box – I will give it an official review.
It smells like Coffee, Nuts, Chocolate, and Mate. It does taste more chocolate-E/Cocoa-Y than I remember it. It has a nice roasted hazelnut flavor, too! It’s robust yet fairly hazelnut-creamy-esque.
I’m liking this better than I remember, actually!
I think I have only ever had a tea or two from this company that is why I chose to swipe it from the ’here’s hoping ’traveling tea box today! I will be replacing it with something else. In the meantime I wanted to share with you my findings on this tea while I was sipping it!
Right away I noticed the vibrant maroon type glow this tea had once it was infused! It’s a gorgeous color! The aroma is somewhat bakey and croissant like but also a little like sun dried tomatoes. YUM!
The flavor is a little woodsy but also a bit minerally – like ‘stones’ almost like some oolongs I have tried. There is a sturdy black tea finish that has a hint of bitterness to it – but in a good way.
I really like this tea – the flavor is full and rich in spots – but I have the say the aroma is what makes me want to continue drinking it! Ahhhhh!
It’s been a while since I have tried a ‘new-to-me-Georgia Tea Co Tea’.
I’m trying to get thru this box so I can get it out in a few days! I HOPE I HOPE.
Oh yes! It’s from the “Here’s Hoping” Traveling Box!
Even tho I started my day with a Green Smoothie I followed it up with my tea habit!
This is a gentle EG and a little bit lighter on the cream to the EG but it follows-thru well! At least it’s not overly ‘creamy’ – I had an EG once that was a creamy EG and it was awful! TOO Creamy! Not this, tho! This has a nice Creaminess to it – it’s Earl Grey but with just a little bit more creaminess than the EG-ness! A nice combo!
