Chocolate teas rarely win me over. They always seem thin and disappointing. This tea, I must say, is completely awesome. The tea seems thick because it’s so full of desserty flavor. The chocolate and pecan come through so clearly. The rooibos is just a supporting background player that you don’t really notice. I had to drink this one slowly, letting each sip linger for a long time because the flavor really sticks around. This is one of the best dessert teas I’ve ever had, and definitely one of my Adagio favorites.
This does NOT taste like a pecan turtle…
I knew as soon as I smelled the dry leaf that this tea would taste quite sad. I mean, it literally just smells like rooibos. Steeped, there’s maybe a hint of chocolate and a little bit of chicory but the profile is REALLY bland and the last thing that I was describe it as is “rich” or sweet/decadent. This might have been the most disappointing thing from this cluster of teas for me, as the concept is really tasty sounding – but the delivery just isn’t there.
So generic. Ginger greater than Lemon, but not by much.
Not a profile that I enjoy personally, and there’s nothing about this to separate it from the other lemongrass/ginger teas that practically every other North American tea vendor seems to offer. At this point, I think carrying something like this sort of just becomes a “statement piece” sort of tea. And I know there are people out there who DO enjoy this profile – but I’m not one of them…
Tastes warm and bitter, then sweet when the sprinkles hit your tongue. Unknown recommended steep time – steeped 2-3 minutes. Not much flavor until the sprinkles kick in. Has an interesting smell: berry-ish and sweet. Additional ingredient: Snowbud. Tried 10.2018.
Flavors: Berry, Floral, Sweet
Steeped 1 pouch in 2 cups of hot water for 3 minutes, then poured over 2 cups of ice and cold water. Chilled in pitcher overnight. Smells like the blue raspberry gelatinous locker freshener from Bath & Body Works that I had in Middle school – very artificial berry smell. Tastes like the smell but very diluted. Tried 10.2018
Flavors: Artificial, Berry
Steeped 3 min. Tastes very bitter. Very faint almond and cherry flavors, but the bitterness over-powers it. Could maybe improve with less steeping time, but not good enough to try it again. Tried 10.2018
Flavors: Almond, Bitter, Cherry
Steeped 1 min with some dunking. Good flavor without bitterness. Could probably steep longer but was afraid of bitterness like with the blackberry tea. Tastes like warm raspberry water, pleasant. Tried 09.2018
I made this tea for my book club. The book was about Trevor Noah’s life, specifically growing up as half white and half black during Apartheid in South Africa. To relate the tea to the book, I blended a blend of half rooibos and half honeybush, both teas originating from Africa.
This is pretty straightforward and pretty tasty. I’m not a huge rooibos/honeybush drinker but I do enjoy them on occasion. I think it will tie in nicely with our meeting tomorrow.
A million thanks to mtchyg for this sample! And the crazy box of samples that will have to be reviewed forthwith.
This tea is green and black and orange and vanilla. All tumbled together. Just like poor, confused Jon Snow, with his ambiguous parentage and torn loyalty.
I guess. I don’t fully understand fandom teas sometimes. I enjoy trying to figure them out.
This tea is messy, unstable, but the collage elements do form a good composition. The spice against the vanilla totally works here.
I think sometimes tea people try to throw random ingredients together to be avant-garde or what-have-you — but this contrast is successful.
Just so you know, I drank this concoction out of a Quaker Steak n Lube mason jar with a handle.
I mention this to maintain my reputation as the Classiest Bitch On Steepster.
