507 Tasting Notes
Cold brewed this and it was very good, cherry cream taste.
I find the name a bit strange though, there’s nothing cake like or chocolatey about this tea, so it’s misleading. Though the ingredients are a dead giveaway.
It DOES, however, kind of taste like the cherry filling stuff inside a Black Forest cake, so maybe that’s what they were getting at.
I love Black Forest cake. I wish I had one right now.
Anyway, this was a. Nice, refreshing, fruity tea! Definite cherry taste.
Definitely involves hibiscus though, which I know some people don’t like. I don’t mind it.
I think I used to drink this hot. Which must be the only way I could stand it. I cold brewed it the other day and ew. Something you expect to be refreshing burning your mouth is NOT a pleasant sensation. And I don’t really like very spicy foods.
I dumped it in the sink.
Good riddance to a weird tea!
Another one from the generous MissB!!
A lot of these teas really appealed to me, so it’s great I got to try them. I’m able to cross a bunch of teas off my wish list :)
This one is definitely rich dark chocolate, but VERY earthy. Super pu-erh taste.
Not really my sort of thing, chocolate dirt. But I can see how someone would like it!
The pu-erh combined with the chocolate kind of reminds me of an Oreo. A dirty Oreo. Very similar to their Oreo pu’erh, actually.
Thanks again for the sample!
A sample from MissB – this one was decent, enjoyable. Mildly sweet and suggestive of graham crackers. It didn’t blow my mind but I can definitely see where they’re coming from. There was something weak about it, but that might be because I added milk.
It was a good cuppa, anyhow!
Thanks for sharing!
Sipdown! Removed from my cupboard, yay. I’m still too scared to count my teas because of the amount I just bought.
This is one I would consider stocking regularly, it’s that good. Creamy and buttery and fresh. My kind of oolong. I won’t be buying any for a long time though, not until my cupboard reaches normal human tea drinking proportions.
A sample sent my way from QueenofTarts, I see here that it’s been discontinued.
That doesn’t make me too sad, especially after North Winds and Golden Orchid (!!!) have wormed their way into my heart (and my belly)…. While I do get a faint hint of chocolate from this, it is bitter rather than creamy. And the oolong is earthy. I don’t love these dark oolongs, I think I’m learning that.
I followed the steeping parameters of 5 min @ boiling.
I took a sip when it was really hot to test it out, wanting to know if I should add milk or not.
I was taking it downstairs to watch a movie, see, and I knew I wouldn’t want to come back up to add milk.
It brewed up BLACK, so I decided to add cream.
It was a comforting cup but not nearly malty or chocolatey enough for me, I know there are more special WP teas out there, so if one like this had to go to make room for, say, golden orchid, then I totally support that decision :)
(Sorry everyone, I’d accidentally logged this under Davidstea instead of Tea Desire)
I’m just logging this so that I remember drinking it
Nothing is really standing out while it’s hot. Just another flavoured black tea.
Thanks to MissB for sending some along!
I think I’m definitely moving in the opposite direction of a lot of these teas.
