So… Coffee? Na, this is a smooth black tea with notes of caramel and nuts. Absolutely smooth and tasty. Fantastic cup of tea. I may end up buying some of this actually. Surprising taste

Being a Canadian tea company it was only proper that we pay homage to our Northern four legged friend the moose. Although the moose is said to have poor eyesight he makes up for it with an impeccable sense of smell and we are sure that he would approve of our moose tracks black tea blend!
This tea is carefully crafted in-house using organic coconut, fair trade coffee beans, organic almonds, hazelnut, chocolate, and a rich base of Sri Lankan black tea. The result is a tea blend that has hints of chocolate, coffee, and rich, malty black tea. It’s the perfect winter pick me up tea and a huge hit in Toronto at the various restaurants we blend this up for!

Somehow, I bought this tea about two years ago now (possibly shorter, but I think that’s about right), and never opened it. Huh?
As I’m going through all of my teas (yes, ALL of them), I’m making sure I have what I say I have, and removing the ones that have disappeared from my tea cupboard on Steepster. It’s quite the project…. so if I haven’t tried something, and I have it, well, I’m trying it. If I love it, I’ll drink it. If I don’t absolutely LOVE it, I’m passing it along. This tea? Passing it along.
Why? Well, it’s very much a coffee tea – which isn’t a bad thing. I’d call it a mocha tea, really, and it’s quite creamy, nutty, coffee-ish, with some chocolate in there to boot. Nice, yes. Rich and flavorful. If I want coffee though, I’d prefer to drink coffee, if that makes any sense. I guess this technically IS coffee, as there are bits of coffee beans in it. Still, it’s not a “madly in love” tea, so it’s off to the sale box. Woohoo!
Flavors: Chocolate, Coffee, Creamy, Mocha, Nutty
Caveat Emptor! This company does not have their act together. My order was either never sent or lost in the mail, it took anywhere from a few hours to two weeks for them to answer emails, and when I finally got my order after six weeks, one of the items was missing.
So, I’m not a huge fan of coffee, but I really like everything else in this blend, so I decided to give it a try. At first I was disappointed. It mostly tastes sweet, with a light coffee flavor. But, as I sipped it, I started liking it better. It’s really smooth, not bitter at all, and tastes kind of creamy. I still feel that someone who likes coffee might enjoy this better, but it’s an interesting change of pace.
doooodzz! freakin delicious! so good cavocorax . so. good.
had enough for only one cup and i re-steeped it the next day. yup that good.
i’m wearing press-on nails. i’m addicted. (moraiwe, if you read this and wanna talk nail stuff email me wink wink!) i tried them once before and was not good at them, but now i totally get it. oddree and i go on vacation to the beach next week and i have my glitter and neon nails picked out and my kindle fanfic loaded.
don’t forget: pack the tea!!
It’s still crazy for my brain when I drink a tea that taste like coffee.
This reminds me of instant flavored coffee or coffee with flavored creamer: Hazelnut and Chocolate. I can also see how moraiwe says it taste like chocolate covered espresso beans. I think I like it enough to order more; I’m just not sure if it will be 50g or another sample size. I plan on trying it iced to help decide the size. It’s still weird how much this reminds me of flavored coffee.
Edit: Yum, just made it iced. I’m going to be buying at least a 50g bag before Summer gets here.
I dunno guys….I really want to love this one, but it came out weak. I don’t know if it is a brewing issue or whether the milk I added affected it. It’s far from horrible, but nowhere as rich as I had expected.
I don’t remember my exact steeping, but I think it was about 2 tsp (to fill 2 travel mugs) and probably about 3 minutes each steep. As per usual, I split the first steep between the two mugs and did the same with the second steep. I do it like this to reduce having one mug of weaker tea.
I’ll try it again, soon, but without the milk, perhaps.
Many thanks to Cavocorax for sharing some of this with me. One hopes that I’ll get a better steep next time.
