Finishing the last of the sampling that TeaEqualsBliss sent to me.

A scrumptious way to shake off the sleepzzz. One of the better Talbott Teas I’ve tried. Sweet yet savory, warm and nutty. It tastes very decadent. It would make for a really pleasant dessert tea. Which is why I’m drinking it now. I like having my dessert first. :)

I like my dessert teas with cream and sugar (if they are black based), and thus prepared this that way automatically. This is a very rich full cocoa flavored tea with a taste of cardamom and a light hint of cinnamon. Very nice, thanks TeaEqualsBliss for sending some my way.

Maybe after reading the favorable posts, had set my hopes too high. Or, maybe I need to use a lot more tea in my infuser.

With Indiana paralysed by an ice storm, I had lots of time to shop online and finally got around to spending the Talbott’s Groupon that I purchased some weeks ago for just such a day. The fearless FedEx delivery person dropped my box of tea this afternoon and within minutes I had ripped into it and was sniffing the intoxicating fragrances of my three choices (two being chocolate, the other cinnamon rose).

The hubby was outdoors breaking the 8 to 10 inches of ice that was making any thought of getting my car out of the drive laughable, and then shovelling the heavy chunks out of the way. What a man!

So, when it appeared he was nearly finished, I set the kettle on the stove and chose “Cocoa Cardamom Seduction.” And I even had a sheet of freshly baked cookies to go with the tea (it took a while to break up all that ice!)

The tin contained visible chunks of spice and tea, and the fragrance was mouth-watering; as pretty to look at as was its aroma while steeping in my favorite tea pot.

The flavor fell short of expectations, though. Seems to be all fragrance but just a mild black tea flavor. We added a little cream and sugar and it seemed to bring a little cocoa flavor forward, though this is not our normal tea service. I suppose I will try steeping another pot some other time, with more tea in the infuser and maybe for a longer time. There have been such fine reviews that surely I just need to experiment some more

try doubling the amount of loose leaf but not the length of infusion! :) Might help!

Thanks for the suggestion, I will have to try this one again; in the meantime I have tried another Talbott tea and discovered that it does take more leaf to achieve the flavor level I am seeking. Another day…
