I love, love, love this. Meghann sent it my way, and it’s now taking up residence in my work stash. Where, to be honest, it’s not going to last long.

I’ve been on and off the road the last several days and am out of sorts today – thinking about all of the things I should be doing, all of the things I have been forgetting to do since last week, and not wanting to do any of them because I am feeling rather lazy. Anyhow…yesterday I had an all-day shopping day/all-day sister day and I swear we were in like 57 stores…one of them being Target. Don’t laugh…I have only actually been in Target like 3 times now. We don’t have one close by and when we travel to a nearby city Hubby don’t like that store so we don’t shop there. So…I got this tea at Target. I chose it because I have never had anything from Archer Farms and this sounded interesting.

The aroma is subtle in every way. I can pick up a little chocolate and a little berry but neither is too intense. It brews pretty dark but it took a while to get there.

The taste is different. It wasn’t what I was expecting. It’s not overly ANYTHING, really. First I can taste a little cocoa like flavor – very subtle and then it fades away. Then I can taste a very little EG and it fades away. In follow-up sips I can taste a very slight cocoa-raspberry flavor at the beginning of the sip but then it morphs into the oh-so-subtle EG. None of the flavors are strong and none of them stay around for very long. It is creamy, tho, which is pretty nice. I can taste the black tea over the rooibos that is for sure and I am totally ok with that. The more I drink this the black tea taste pops out more and as it cools the flavors mix with the creaminess a bit better.

I don’t think I would buy this again because of the crazy amount of tea that I do have in my stash but I am glad I did buy it once to try it. The flavors aren’t very intense but the over all taste on the tongue is interesting, yet, different. It’s a bit mellower than I thought it would be but with the creamy aspect of it and the sweeter aftertaste I would consider it a lounge-tea one to laze-out to or while reading a book or something for the early evening, even. It’s not bad at all – overall…but quite different from what I thought it would be.

I obviously didn’t read the packaging carefully on this impulse buy: it contains red rooibos. My taste buds seem to have changed as I don’t enjoy red rooibos anymore. Unless it is heavily masked. Also the cocoa tastes very fake in this blend. Not tasting much bergamot or berry. Just fake chocolate rooibos :-/

LiberTEAS

when I first read the name of this tea, I thought… oh… I must try it… but after reading your note… eh… maybe not!

Jaime

That’s exactly what I was thinking, too, LiberTEAS.

Meghann M

That’s what made me buy it, but it’s so not good. I guess I shouldn’t have expected Target’s name brand tea to be extravagant, but no.

Makes for a great start to the day

Michelle Butler Hallett

Oooh. This sounds like a promising combination. (This from a tea-fiend who normally avoids flavoured black teas.)

The DJBooth

Yeah I’m pretty surprised by it I wouldn’t really expect that from a chain store brand like Target….I don’t think good tea has to be pricey and this is pretty awesome!

This tea is becoming a favorite. It was awesome with a couple pieces of black currant chocolate for a mid-morning snack. :)

Hmm, I guess I haven’t reviewed this yet. Okay!

I am not an earl grey person at all because I really don’t like bergamot and I imagine this is why I don’t like this tea very much. I decided to give it a try because I thought the unusual combo of flavors would be different enough to possibly change my mind, but unfortunately that was not the case. I am coming to appreciate black tea and rooibos combinations since you get the flavor of black tea with less caffeine, but I’m just not into whatever they did with the chocolate and berries. Honestly, it doesn’t taste like chocolate or berries or earl grey, it just tastes… weird. I can’t figure out what it reminds me of. Not undrinkable, but weird and mildly unpleasant.

Another downside worth mentioning is that there is very little leaf in each bag. I have to use two in all but the smallest of mugs.

Love this. I found it in the store and thought to myself, this can either taste REALLY BAD or AWESOME and it was and is still awesome.

Doesn’t taste like chocolate to me, but I love the smooth, creamy-like taste. I enjoy it by steeping about 3.5 minutes and adding a splash of milk. I like to pair this with a bit of dark chocolate.
