So I recently found out the Tea Guys have a whole bunch of new blends that are not yet listed on their website. However, if you click on the Catalog button their website, you can see what they all are. You have to call in to order them and for more detailed descriptions. As a lover of really well done flavored tea blends, I just placed a rather large sample order with them. While Cafe Latte is not one of their new blends, I have started drinking coffee in the morning and have grown to love it. DARNITALL! Anyway, I have been curious about a coffee flavored tea and decided to give this one a shot and threw in a sample. Ultimately, I have decided that I like it. It is a fusion of coffee and black tea. They are nicely balanced with it erring slightly of tasting more like black tea than coffee. There is a hint of cocoa in the flavor profile making it taste sort of mocha-ish. I did find that I only enjoy this one when it served quite hot and a splash of milk is almost a necessity—-or even chocolate milk. I haven’t reviewed this one and don’t plan on writing a full review, but it was also reviewed by several other folks on Teaviews if you want to know more. I don’t know that I will order this in quantity, but will definitely at least get another sample on a future order.
The combination of dark roasted, organic coffee beans, (fresh from our local coffee roaster) and select black teas produces a strong and energizing cup that is best with milk. A blend that offers enough caffeine to please coffee drinkers, and smooth enough for tea lovers – the best of both worlds.
