Holy cacao Batman! This is one chocolatey tea. Cacao and honey. Unfortunately, this cooled before I got a chance to drink it and that led to my mug being quite astringent. It wasn’t bad, though a little brisk for my tastes. Still it was fun to try so thank you Sil for the share.

Well, this was very lovely in a very Yunnan black kind of way: bread and chocolate.

The day started off with strong rain and angry clouds and easily shifted things on my calendar, so I relished the thought of being able to hang out and do things at home and drink tea and tea and tea. Sadly, the day cleared up.

Fortunately, the neighbours kept the infant away from the adjoining wall for most of the day. Being awoken several times in the night is plenty exposure, thank you very much. Intolerant? Well, yes, but I’ve been putting up with this for months without going over there and pressing their doorbell in the middle of the night, so I think I am doing rather well.

I quite enjoyed this steep and resteep despite my thwarted plans.

Thank you for the sample, Sil. I look forward to another moment with delicious this and the rest of it.

Malt and molasses that gets more and more brisk the cooler it gets. Best hot but tasty nonetheless. Thank you Sil! http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/05/09/mesozoic-malt-from-tea-historic/

Thank you Sil! This was an interesting one since it was brisk and yet not astringent. Instead it was brisk and malty. Somehow I felt like this would wake me up while also being smooth and desserty.

I drank this last night and tried reviewing it then but steepster was on the fritz again. So what I do remember is that this was good. Chocolatey but with a solid base tea. Maybe a little more on the cacao side than I would have liked but still really good. Thank you Sil for the share!

noms. had this one earlier today as well and it was super tasty. Sort of an every day cup of tea that i could have any time for just wanting a solid cup of tea.

Terri HarpLady

I haven’t tried that company yet :)

Sil

It’s Nicole’s venture :)

This is goooooood. Highly malty and bold with a slight astringency that comes across as sour, in a pleasant way. It lingers in the aftertaste. More astringency comes out as the tea cools. And when I say malty, I mean… enough to fill a malt ball. Ahhhh love it!
There is a slight dustiness underneath it all. Not in a bad way… more like the tea is covered in velvet, or rather the tea is sipped through a velvet cover? It’s an interesting sensation!
I love how complex this is. The molasses type note in mid swallow is fun as well, not something I see that often in an Assam, not this strongly anyhow! :)
Thanks for the sample Nicole!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

This is far and away my fave Assam right now. It’s only from the summer flush, though, so I have to really stock up this year. :)

Sad sample sipdown!
Not enough for a full cup so I combined it with the last of my Joseph Wesley Assam. It was a lovely last cuppa. Malty yum. Farewell friend

This is good. Plain. Highly astringent mid and tail end of the sip. Malty throughout, in the aftertaste as well. I didn’t much like it sans milk or sugar so it’s a bit one dimensional.
It reminds me of Tim Horton’s tea. Or rather, a good cup of Tim’s tea… what I hope for it to be anyhow! Tim’s tends to be hit and miss, no idea why…
Also this is my second cup today. First one I tried with the hot tap water, second one was with boiled kettle water.
I definitely like the latter better, as it has more complexity and depth. First cup was much the same, only the liquor was thicker and the flavours were muted. Still, not bad for when I’m in a rush I suppose.
Also? total klutz moment as I dumped milk all over our carpeted floor. le sighs
Thank you for the sample Nicole!!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Those were pretty much my thoughts as well. Nothing fancy or complex but more malt than I expect in leaves that small. I think it’s a good morning tea.

Indigobloom

Definitely! I would bet it is very forgiving as a blunder through my half awake morning routine :P

SO GOOD!!! I love cacao and Assam, so it really is a no brainer. Thanks for the sample Nicole!
Malty and sweet. Just perfection. I kinda finished the cup before thinking about my note, I downed it so quickly I’m not sure it even happened :P

Indigobloom

Definitely yay!! :)

Tea #2 from my swap with Nicole/Tea-Historic. Thank you Nicole!
I’m not sure what to make of this tea. Not being a huge fan of vanilla, I went in with an open mind. The vanilla turned out to be rather mild, and a nice pairing with the malty black Assam base.
I didn’t expect the hint of smokiness though, it was a pleasant surprise as it wasn’t mentioned in the tea description. Perhaps the infuser at my boyfriend’s was tainted somehow? I’d brewed lemon oolong in the same cup last night, so that doesn’t really make sense.
The smoke note came out more as my tea cooled, and after I added milk. An interesting contrast to the vanilla.
Also, being a ctc, I feel rather caffeinated at the moment :P
I’ll have to see how it brews up in the office, under less than optimal conditions.

Evol Ving Ness

This one sounds delicious. I love the combination of vanilla, smoke, and malt. I will keep my eyes pealed for this one.

Indigobloom

I recommend it, especially for ’nilla lovers :)

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Interesting that you got smoke. I normally get smoky notes where others don’t but not from this blend. I can see that it would be an interesting combination!

Indigobloom

Yeah, I’m not sure if it was the actual tea. The infuser I used(not mine) often has Twinnings EG in it. Maybe a remnant from that?

Sil

How did I not g et this one?

Indigobloom

@Sil, I think you’d like it!

Trying to get in some tea today since i’m back from vacation and want to clear out a few of the samples i have. This wasn’t a sample but was a sipdown and a nice start to my day earlier. sorry to see this go but hopefully i can clear out my cupboard a bit and pick up a few more teas from Nicole since i’ve quite enjoyed them!

Evol Ving Ness

And I have too, of the ones that I’ve tried so far.

Tried this one out today but puppy interrupted my tea drinking with a need to to go play outside with friends. So MOST of this cup was had relatively cold lol I’ll write a better review when i get another chance to drink it hot, but cold it was a nice cup – smooth without any bitterness, good way to start the day!

Silly me didn’t realise this one was a jasmine tea… but you know..i’m always up for trying anything. What’s nice about this one is that it’s not SUPER in your face jasmine. It’s still probably too much jasmine for me, but i could take out a few of the jasmine pearls next time to try that out. I do really love the concept of this tea though…asteroids and mini fragments heh. I have a few friends that might really enjoy this one so i’ll be sharing the rest of this and leaving a few for me to play with. Not rating this one as i’m not a jasmine fan but i think those that enjoy jasmine would like the execution of this one. It was neat! (also i drank almost the whole cup so that speaks well to the tea!)

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Doh! I totally spaced that you were not a jasmine person. I would have steered you towards something else. But if you nearly finished the cup, that’s pretty high praise. :)

OMGsrsly

Nicole, the trick with Sil is to just give her EVERYTHING. She will try it all. ;)

Sil

Nicole_ not your fault, my order, just wasn’t paying attention heh. I love the concept and I think it’s a well balanced tea. Interesting to blend jasmine and black….AND I love the theming :)

i think i let this one steep a little too long this morning. need to remember that for this one, i want to keep it to a shorter steep time. Still a good wake me up tea for today but a little strong

I had this one today but i got distracted playing with the dog and moving our house around. What i remember most was that while this is a brisk tea, it’s not too bold or astringent. more to come the next time i have it!
