Ok – last review before going to catch my bus! I’m such a slacker. It doesn’t help that although I’ve had three cups of black tea, I feel just as tired as before… ugh.
Anyways…. 500th Tasting Note!!! Exciting! This was unintentional, and I certainly didn’t pick any special tea to mark such an occasion, just a sample that I ran across and figured I should finally try.
Now, I swear I haven’t had this tea before, but the aroma of it is ridiculously familiar. I’m wondering if it’s a similarity to Carrot Cake (oolong base)? Or Super Chocolate (carob, cinnamon)? Or maybe it’s just the carob. I’m so confused though. The aroma is kind of chai-y, cinnamony, carob-y. The flavour tastes much like a watered-down, chocolatey chai. Which I swear is what I think Super Chocolate is like, except that I know that one’s a green! But I don’t have any more Super Chocolate to try against it, and I think it’s an online exclusive now, so perhaps this mystery will never be solved.
Anyhow, I like this well enough, perhaps not enough to purchase, but certainly to drink again. Can’t pick out the oolong in particular, but that’s common with DT oolong blends aside from Banana Oolong.
ETA: Second infusion remains pretty tasty, mostly like a (chocolatey?) chai though (which I do like). Same with the third. I feel like this tea could last a lot longer than I plan on taking it, because the spices just aren’t losing flavour.
