Another Auggy Tea! Woot! Thanks!

I must say…at this infuses…I’m having some bizarre experiences with this tea right away. PLEASE keep in mind…Bizarre isn’t always a BAD thing…but I just thought I should mention…lol…

First when I opened the baggie of loose leaf I thought I was smelling vinegar. SO WEIRD! Yes, I have Vinegar Tea BUT it’s packed safely in a tin far away from where I was storing this! LOL Once the loose leaf had a little time to vent the scent morphed into more of a chocolate cherry scent…WHEW!

Okay…now…I’m post infusion and had another odd-ball happening…the liquid is VERY cloudy…almost like a seasonal/natural cider with herb and fruit floaties. Now it smells like an alcoholic beverage with chocolate and cherry.

The first sip…
Hum…not sure…it’s woodsy tasting…

2nd sip…
It’s still pretty woodsy….actually quite woodsy…and spicy. NOT hot or artificial spicy but almost like Indian Spices…if that makes sense…
I’d don’t think it’s creamy at all. I’m not really tasting any chocolate…maybe a dark chocolate in the after sip/beginning part of the after taste…okay…I’ll go with that. And I can’t really taste the cherry…eventho I know it’s there! There is a HUGE one in the center of my infuser.

I have been taking slow sips thus far to try and really taste it…and first and foremost WOODSY. As I try to increase by sip speed (LOL – that sounds funny!) I notice it’s easier to handle and I can pick out an ever so slight hint of BOTH the cherry and chocolate.

This is so odd…SO COMPLEX. Perhaps I over infused amount-wise…but…

Personally, I will have to remember to sip faster on this one and not dilly-dally…there IS a difference. OR…maybe wait for it to cool a bit.

After doing the “Sip-Speed-Test” I have decided this is ok…very bizarre, but ended up being pretty good.

Sometimes you just have to tinker with it, ya know!?

Again, I hope I got the right tea. I added updated info and picture from Tropical Tea Company’s site. Though there were no berries in my blend I could definitely smell them.

I get cranberries through and through. I didn’t expect to notice chocolate – white chocolate not usually having any cacao in it – but I thought maybe a bit of sweet. I don’t get any sweet that can’t be attributed to the berries. Oddly, adding sugar makes it just a bit more sour.

Won’t be getting this one again.

Well, when you try a lot, you’re bound to end up with some you don’t care for. :)

Predominately a darker chocolate taste with hints of cream and cherry. There’s a slight astringency to it that isn’t unpleasant but that keeps this from screaming ‘dessert tea’ to me. The flavorings are smooth and mild and that keeps it from being overly rich. Not bad.

Rather good but a bit dry. It is very smooth. The aftertaste is kind of fake-flavored tasting – like a cheaply flavored chocolate bar.
