I feel like I’m getting more cherry in this cup. I also gets hints of chocolate that remind me of scratch and sniff sticker chocolate. I dumped the rest of this sample in my steeper, so I probably overleafed it a touch, but I think it works out well. I don’t quite get what the latte part of the name is about, unless it is a suggestion to add creamer which I will try before this cup is done. Oh wow, adding creamer does make this tea pop! I never would have thought to add cream to an oolong for some reason. The cherry seems more pronounced, taking over the sip while the chocolate comes in on the finish. I’m liking this cup, but it’s not quite enough to reel me in for a reorder although I would try the flavors again if it were on a black base.

Are you just adding half and half when you refer to adding creamer?

Dustin

I get the soy creamer from Trader Joe’s. It is lightly sweetened.

I’m not a big fan of the individual base teas, chocolate cherry combos, or coffee in general, but even I can get behind this one a little. The Quilan oolong and hojicha both provide the ideal roasty, earth-chocolate blend on which to build those lovely chocolate cherry coffee flavours.

My favourite aspect hands down is the aroma: dry leaf, wet leaf, and liquid. It has the best cherry smell ever, mixed in with some succulent chicory chocolate.

It also went well with or without milk. Now I just have to see if it resteeps well, and that will be a wrap!

This one is a favourite! When it is good, it is stellar!

Fjellrev

This is totally a star blend from them! I just wish it tasted as good as it smelled.

Evol Ving Ness

Sometimes it does.

CrowKettle

Ha! Evol, you make me want to pick up more, despite my meh feelings towards chocolate cherry and coffee things! I totally agree it’s a star blend though; it’s such a great flavour pairing.

I think a few of the AQ2T blends have inconsistency factors that can pay off with a bit of dedication. Like Jasmine Shortbread- the one time I got shortbread it was amazing and people were fighting over the pot, but usually it steeped as a decent jasmine tea.

Evol Ving Ness

I’m not quite sure why that it, but I agree. There have also been times that I was kaboom overpowered by the flavourings in two fairly recent blends, the names of which don’t come to mind though most everyone was raving in favour. IDGI. Can’t comment on the Jasmine Shortbread as I haven’t tried it.

CrowKettle

It’s also hard to judge consistency with the sample sizes, with 1-2 servings. Especially when the blend in question has a lot of bulky ingredients; the right thing to do would be to give them a “second chance” :P

Evol Ving Ness

yes, there’s that too.

Had more of this. Definitely not a favourite – I’m pretty picky about the cherry flavouring in my tea, and combined with the coffee, it just doesn’t quite work for me.

Evol Ving Ness

Too bad. There are days that I just love this one.

Kittenna

Yeah – I thought I’d like it more. I don’t hate it, at least!

Really loving this tea!! I must try it as a latte soon.
Plain, it was rich and comforting. A touch bitter when hot, due to the coffee I think. Half a tsp of sugar helped. The chocolate and creamy coffee notes were more present in the second steep. I didn’t get much oolong flavour, but then, I don’t think that was the point here :)

I finally made my A Quarter to Tea order after having had this tea (and Spumoni) on my watch list for a while.

When I opened up the bag I was greeted with a very strong cherry cordial scent. For me, this was awesome. I love cherry cordials. A lot. Like, I can’t buy them for myself because I will eat the entire sleeve of them in entirely too quick of a fashion. But yes, the scent of this is very strong. If you aren’t as enamored with cherries, this might be too strong for you.

I had to assume that the scent couldn’t transfer to the taste in the same degree of strength. And I was right… but not in a bad way. When brewed, the cherry chocolate flavors are there but mellowed out. A bit of the oolong flavor is allowed to shine through. Which, to be honest, I had almost forgotten about it being an oolong due to the smell being so prominent. But yes, the oolong flavor is there and right next to it is cherry and chocolate or cherry cordial, if you use your imagination.

The flavors all meld together pretty evenly actually. This is during the sip. Much to my pleasant surprise, the after taste is where the cherry chocolate flavors come back a bit stronger. I would find myself almost smacking my lips after and between sips because the left over flavor almost made it seem that I had, in fact, eaten a chocolate covered cherry. I let a cup of this go cold before I drank it and that was still a tasty treat.

Hot or cold, this is one of the few flavored blends that I have come across that even comes close to duplicating the flavor from the scent it gives off. Nicely done.

I must confess: when I first received this, my heart broke into itty-bitty pieces.

Oh no! Cherry! AAAAAH!

I usually hate cherry. It tends to remind me of cough medicine. What if I hated it? How would I show my face at Tea Club?

That sounds amazing. My absolutely favorite winter time dessert is chocolate cherry cordial with a cup of coffee.

Super Starling!

I think I might have sipped this one down. :| But if something like it ever comes back, get on it!

I went ahead and ordered this. Your review prompted me. AND IT IS AWESOME!

Great tea to kick off the Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box! Thanks Shezza!
It isn’t as “coffee like” as I thought it was going to be which is good for me because I’m not a big fan of coffee. The chocolate is rich, not that “waxy”, cheap chocolate. The cherry is in the background but that’s ok. Delicious cuppa

I’m not sure why I got this tea. I’m one of those people who don’t particularly like the taste of fruits and chocolate mixed together. I do like dessert style blends, so that may be an explanation as to where my head was at when I decided to get this.

This tea was one of those instances where I think every flavor that the blender intended me to taste came out in the brew, which happens less often than I thought (probably due to my untrained palate). The cherry and chocolate are blended well together and make themselves known over the tea base without being overpowering. The chocolate is dark and subtle, barely sweet. The cherry is even more subtle, which keeps it from tasting fake…a nice touch.

The only thing that I found odd about this tea was the base itself. I’m not familiar with the different types of oolongs, and I have even less experience with the long twisty leaves as opposed to the rolled up type. The base tasted earthy, like wet soil.

I’m not sure if it’s the flavor, the base, or the entire blend together, but I get some coffee sort of flavor in the mix every now and then. (Okay, this note is added later, but I forgot that this tea has the word “latte” in it. Guess that would explain the coffee taste.)

While I enjoyed tasting this tea, it’s not my flavor personally.

I thought I was out of this but realised I had a little baggy at the bottom of my drawer. I got more cocoa and cherry using hotter water this time (90 deg. C) and it also made it more creamy.

There really aren’t enough words to convey how much I love this tea—it’s everything I ever wanted out of a chocolate tea and then some. The combination of quilan oolong, hojicha, and chicory is brilliant—it gives the tea a nice roasted flavor with a tinge of bitterness on the back of the tongue, just like good quality dark chocolate. It really hits all of the right notes for me and then comes the sweet cherry flavor. This tea reminds me of the chocolate covered cherries my grandma bought every Christmas throughout my childhood. I have such fond memories of them and it was always such a treat when she would share a bite with us. Those cordial cherries from Queen Anne were her favorite (and I wouldn’t have blamed her if she had decided to hoard the entire box, those things are delicious.) This is hands down the most realistically flavored chocolate tea I’ve come across. Lauren at A Quarter to Tea really is a talented tea blender, I can’t wait to see what new flavors she dreams up next.
