Well, I spent this morning doing what everyone hopes to do on their birthday, which is waiting at the DMV to get my drivers liscence renewed. Actually it went relatively smoothly for the DMV.

Now I need some tasty birthday tea, plus it needed to be a black tea for the morning, so I reached for this one. Love this tea so much! Like a gongfu black tea with a bit of extra chocolate flavor, which is I think essentially what it is. Very subtle flavoring here.

Happy Birthday to you…….

Happy birthday! And glad to hear the DMV line wasn’t too bad. I’ve found in my town that if I go on a week day around noon, there is rarely any line at all.

I’ve spent the whole day drinking ‘grown up’ tea, & while we were taking a break from re-stringing another harp, and reading Indigo Bloom’s post, little Terri started begging for a chocolate tea. And this one is awesome! First of all, the tea base is real full leaf tea, not chopped up stuff, & it’s a nice malty robust base! Then the chocolate! It reminds me of melted chocolate chips, the semi sweet kind. It has a thick feeling to it. I added stevia & coconut creamer, & I’m drinking hot cocoa! YUMMM!!

Sil

Hmmmmm… Want! Lol

Terri HarpLady

I plan on sending you some, when we finally do our trade, LOL!

Sil

Haha ok

Dinosara

My fave chocolate tea by far!

Indigobloom

ohhhh yah that sounds amazing. Little Terri has good instincts haha

Serenity

I want to A. learn to play the harp and B. drink this tea! : )

Terri HarpLady

Dinosara: Yup!
Indigo: Yup! She’s very easily influenced by others too :D
Serenity: Too bad you don’t live in St. Louis! I have rental harps available for students. BUT if you ever decide to try lessons, I can probably help you find someone in your area.

Indigobloom

I’m happy to influence tea choices any time! :P

Terri HarpLady

Sometimes it’s fun to look around, see what everyone else is drinking, & then decide what I want. No responsibility!

I’m thinking that the tea spot and i are going to have to have a chat soon about putting some of their teas into my house. Terri was awesome enough to send me a bunch of their teas and I’m thoroughly enjoying a bunch of them. I’d take tea spot teas over tealux teas every day! (and no i have no idea why the two are comparable in my mind) I wanted a cup of this without any additions but i for sure can see how amaaazing this will be with a bit of sweetner and possibly milk added to it.

Without additions this is a cocoa chocolate malty delicious sort of tea. Kittenna better be careful or i’ll steal her samples that Terri sent along. :)

Edit: This resteeps really nicely too!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

uh ohs. methinks IB is in trouble… (after she tries this…)

Sil

it’s a really nice one. :)

Terri HarpLady

Yay! Glad to hear you like it!

Fjellrev

I’ve had this on my list for a while. You make me want to get down to that Tea Spot order sooner haha.

As anticipated, milk accentuates the subtle chocolate hiding behind the excellent black tea base. Chocolate fog. This is not the one you want if you crave fudge.

Our little creek bottoms were coated with deliciously wispy vanilla fog this morning. I wanted to drive 20 mph to absorb the scenery; unfortunately, the vehicles behind me did not have the same opinion. So I had to enjoy it far too quickly.

K S

How’s the ankle?

JustJames

wispy vanilla fog….. i love fall.

gmathis

Limping, but nothing requiring more than ibuprofen and sympathy. My minor misfortune is providing a source of merriment to most of my coworkers.

Terri HarpLady

I love Fall!

Thank you Bo from the Tea Spot for this generous Sample!

Morning Tea! It’s a beautiful morning on the Frontrange!

What is the Frontrange?
At 5000 ft. there is a point where the high plains meet the mountains running the length of Colorado. All along that point resides most of the population of the State. The views are stunning! I’ve seen antelope in the neighboring fields, fox and bald eagles.

Boulder where the Tea Spot is located, was voted the town with the happiest people in the United States. It might be because the people have been drinking this tea.
As tea lover, I’d stop in at the Tea Spot and pick up this tea to go, then stroll over to the Pearl Street Mall and walk until I found the perfect place to people watch in the shade. The Mall is open-air and closed to cars…filled with fountains, flowers, people walking their pooches and musicians from the Colorado Music Festival.
You can visit tea house after tea house, spice shops, boutiques and the National Center for Atmospheric Research. This is a tea friendly town!

Review:
I made a whole 32oz morning pot of “O” using 1TB leaves and steeped
3 minutes. The liquor was a medium honey brown.

First I took a sip without any additions and was relieved that there was no artificial chocolate flavor or sourness. Hooray!

You could easily enjoy this tea as it is without additions. I found so much more enjoyment with sweetening, cream or both added.

When I added a little sweetening the chocolate flavor began to wake up.
Um…“How about that”?! I wasn’t expecting such a change.

Then I added some cream.
“Well?!, Where have you been all my life my sweet sexy, smooth chocolate bonbon”?!
(I did say the “S” word which with the “O” makes “SO” as in “SO” good!)

The sweetened chocolate creaminess reminds me of Italian Chocolate Hazelnut Seashells that I used to eat at Christmas.
Marbled and precious…better than Nutella…way better. More chocolatey.

Ok Bo….this is a great tasting tea!

I woke up this morning on auto-pilot and poked through my box of samples to see if I could find one for the morning. And I didn’t want any of them. And suddenly I didn’t want tea at all.

:( That’s the hazard when it comes to focusing on sipdowns and trying unopened samples.

So, I said FORGET IT, and drank this instead and am now happy with tea again. Maybe I’ll update my cupboard and get a better idea of what I have by looking at the physical weight of it all, instead of focusing on the number. :P

Stephanie

Yeah, you gotta drink what you are in the mood for! :)

Sil

i try to alternate…i don’t force myself to drink samples if it’s really not what i’m in the mood for

keychange

Yeah, I go easy on myself in the morning. Just drink whatever it is you want: tea, coffee, nothing, etc. LOL.

Cavocorax

Totally. I’m happy I moved onto something that excited me. Every cup is basically working towards sipdown anyway.

Terri HarpLady

Arrrr, mateys, today I’ll be drinkin’ whatever I wants to drink, says I.

OMGsrsly

Why is there no rum in my tea? :)

Sil

terri – i posted an internal announcement on our “back office” site to that effect… just to try and get people to smile…hopefully i don’t get in trouble for it lol

Cavocorax

Why is there no rum in the house?

OMGsrsly

Aye, Cavo. That is a terrrrrrible thing, no rum. (Which reminds me. I need some ginger beer for a Dark and Stormy tonight.)

Right now, this is pretty darn good tea. I’m not sure I’d want more, but it’s so delicious after that piece of gluten free cheesecake – the one my BFF left in my fridge.

It’s sweet, malty, a little chocolatey. I wouldn’t have guessed it’s flavoured, though. There’s not enough chocolate there for that.

Thank you, Sil. I appreciate being able to try this one!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
Sil

i like bolder breakfast better from the tea spot now…

OMGsrsly

Haha. That isn’t one you sent. Oh, and BTW, turns out my brother LOVES roasted oolongs and puerh. All unflavoured. :) So you know, not much I have in my house. I need to do a Teavivre order for him at some point.

Sil

So some of the teas i sent were a hit? there are a couple puerhs from teavivre that are really nice if you get around to placing that order.

OMGsrsly

I got the puerh sample pack just before Christmas, and gave most of it to my parents. They just got into puerh, and seem to really like it. :) I had NO idea it’s what my brother would end up liking as well!

mrmopar

Puerh is good!

When I ordered this tea, I had no idea that I would enjoy it this much. It is AMAZING. Amazing doesn’t even do it justice.

What makes this chocolate tea so special is the base of the tea, it is a Hong MaoJian which gives it a rich, smooth taste. It has a malty tone and delicious caramel-y undertone that melds beautifully with the essence of chocolate.

Honestly, I think that the only thing that could make this even better is maybe some cacao shells to rev up the chocolate. It is very chocolate-y without them… but, more chocolate = more chocolate. (Simple equation for chocoholics everywhere) This may even be good enough to replace my Chocolate Rose Romance.

Dinosara

This is probably my favorite ever chocolate tea. I agree that amazing doesn’t do it justice. :D

Azzrian

I want. Even the name sounds sexy!

Thank you to Terri HarpLady for directing a sample of this tea through Sil to me! :D I finally reached the Dr. Who season where I meet the Ponds (well, I’ve only really been introduced to one at this point), but that means that I may soon need my “Farewell Ponds” tea. Also, I think I shall try the Tardis blend tomorrow, if the boy and I end up watching some episodes!

Anyhow! I continue to be rambly. i’m not sure quite what I was expecting with this tea, but it wasn’t this – I definitely was expecting more of a flavoured tea, but this tea is quite simple, just a solid, high-quality black base and some chocolate flavouring to bring out the relevant flavours. Although the tea tastes ok, I’m finding that the flavour is a bit reminiscent of NesQuick(?) syrup, which means it’s coming across a bit fakey to me. Part of the problem may be that I understeeped this tea – I’ve taken to starting all blacks with 2-minute infusions to prevent astringency (it’s been well-worth it, usually), and I think that this tea, being of good quality, could certainly withstand at least 3 if not 4 minutes, which would perhaps bring out the base tea more, rounding out the flavour. We’ll see how the second infusion goes, but I do also have at least enough for another cup if it turns out this is all user error! Still quite drinkable, however! Rating reserved for now.

Second tea of the morning…..

I will admit it. I have been ‘re-interviewing’ my flavored teas. I am at a point where I don’t have much left in the way of flavored teas because I rarely drink them, so maybe my review doesn’t apply to most as I am not much of a fan anymore of flavored tea. I know I had fond memories of this one and bought some last April. To tell how interested I have been until now….I just opened the package today.

Call me a bit disappointed. The initial smell of the leaf was a little medicinal and artificial. I am hoping it just needs to breathe a little. It has never been opened, so it should not have degraded much. I do smell artificial chocolate in the brewed tea, too, and I can taste it. I did not go with the stevia sweetener, because I wanted this to be as close as I remembered to having it last. It looks to have a similar base as the TeaSpot’s Qu Hao Silk. I remember quality black tea with cocoa notes on steriods. I got quality black tea with chocolate and a hint of medicine. :(
