drank Silencio by August Uncommon Tea
2221 tasting notes

LET IT BE KNOWN that I’m just here to post a note and then I’ll likely disappear again. Hello! Goodbye!

This tea. I’m blaming Dexter for this. But it was a free sample, so I suppose that’s ok.

It smells like cacao shells and pineapple when I sniff it dry. Really chocolatey and fruity. So nice. The most interesting notes are tobacco. So, for example, when you have a really nice pipe tobacco and it smells earthy and rich and fruity. Like that. Not like smoke. Tobacco as a perfume fragrance is never smoke. This is what it evokes. Vanilla and warm woods. Sweet fruits. Cacao shell (similar to chocolate, but not the same).

So good.

Steeped, and sipping it, the pepper comes out. It’s a really nice flavour. Still the vanilla and warm woods and juicy fruit, some cacao shells (but not enough for me right now… I find cacao shells smell more than they tend to taste), delicious black tea.

I’m having it with some milk, which might take down the pepper somewhat.

I really like this tea. I might be considering an order. Which is weird. Because I think I’ve spent $30 on tea in the last 8 months.

Flavors: Cherry Wood, Earth, Pepper, Pineapple, Tobacco, Vanilla

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

All I did was mention that you could get a free sample…. I’m not sure this was my fault :) Happy you like it.

OMGsrsly

It’s that lure. Free. :D

Sil

I didn’t try this one…went with the herbal…. opinions on whether this might be up my alley?

I need to try this one again; it was so drastically not what I’d expected that I think my first impression was definitely prejudiced. Interesting that @OMGsrsly didn’t get as much cacao as she wanted. I almost thought the chocolate was too strong.

OMGsrsly

Idk that there will be enough pineapple for you, Sil, but it’s a really neat combination. The pineapple is a good one imo.

Roswell, I’m just undergoing some massive chocolate cravings right now. Haha. I’m sure if I try the tea in a week I will find the chocolate to be ‘enough’.

I definitely like this tea better with milk, but then, I’m a milky tea person.
