Testing testing… a backup tasting note to post from the last freeze… no new tasting notes for a while. I’m sure all the Steepsterers are congregating in some tasting note I’m not seeing….

From a long ago order, just never wrote a note yet.  First, for some reason I expect this to be like the rocket popsicles, but no, those aren’t chocolate.  Then I always expect this to taste like raspberry, but then I realized I’m thinking of the David’s tea that has a similar name — I think I only had that blend once or twice, so my memory is a bit hazy there.  This blend isn’t raspberry… it’s mainly black tea, chocolate, yerba mate, and coffee.  The yerba mate is the green rather than the roasted, which seems a bit odd with chocolate and coffee.  It works well enough anyway, but it’s not really a flavor profile I’m ever gravitating towards.  Earthy, rustic, a bit bitter, even with only a teaspoon.  At least it doesn’t have the chicory the David’s blend had.  Maybe the caffeine is supposed to skyrocket me into space or something.

I have around four notes on my Steepster.txt, but just am not posting them until the site is more stable. I’m still having it 404 on me several times every day, and hitting 503’s way more than normal.

tea-sipper

Yeah, I just wanted to post that one to see what would happen, now I’ll probably just be drinking some tea without posting anything for a while. Hopefully things will be fixed soon!

Leafhopper

The http version of Steepster works for me, but the https version consistently does not. I’ve decided to keep posting tasting notes in case the site stops working for me altogether.

Mastress Alita

For me, even the non-SSL version of the site goes down (Someone forgot to turn the kettle on! screens) several times a day. Too unstable for me to bother pasting over my tea notes right now.

Leafhopper

Mastress Alita, you’re right, I’ve gotten a few of those screens, too. Let’s hope they figure out how to restore some functionality to the site.

And now my Dashboard is completely missing yet again… the site is just so broken for me the last week it’s been unbarable.

CrowKettle

There was no dashboard new notes at all and then I followed a new person and now my dashboard is just there notes. lol. Stuff is strange.

Leafhopper

My dashboard also disappeared this morning, though now I see my last review. Sigh.

tea-sipper

Yep, I’m only seeing your last review on my dashboard too, Leafhopper. Hopefully a bright shiny new steepster will eventually happen!

Leafhopper

Yes, fingers crossed.

Trick or Treat! I got this tea quite some time ago in a cupboard sale of tea-sipper’s, so thank you tea-sipper! This is a Ceylon black tea/yerba mate blend with chocolate and coffee beans. I have some other coffee teas (confession: I actually like coffee too!), but the dry leaf for this smells surprisingly chocolately, and my other coffee teas have a very strong coffee flavor. I’m interested to see how this will turn out.

I was careful to pull out the coffee beans when measuring the leaf since they were adding a lot of weight to the measurement, so I got 2.4g of actual dry tea leaf; I think I would’ve ended up with quite a weak cup otherwise! Of course, the coffee beans were added back into the infuser with the leaf and I steeped in 350ml boiling water for four minutes. And the steeped cup is a light brown color and smells very chocolately… again, I’m surprised I’m not really getting much of a coffee note in the aroma like I’ve had with past coffee teas.

The tea is very smooth! I was expecting a bit of bite with Ceylon, coffee, and yerba mate, things I’ve had separately and found to have bitterness and astringency on their own, but… no. I’m not getting any bitterness in this cup, it has a medium body with a subtle earthy taste that reminds me a bit of pu-erh teas, and the dominating flavor is a rich, chocolately/cocoa note. There is a coffee flavor that is left as an aftertaste on my tongue, but it isn’t really distinct during the sip. It’s a sweet tea without being overbearing about it. It’s really nice! It’s a good sweet tooth hit for those times when you also need a caffeine hit, but the high caffeine content doesn’t make it suitable as a bedtime dessert tea.

There’s an earthy goodness to this tea that makes it different. It’s way more of a savoury tea than a sweet chocolate blend. Ceylon, coffee and dark chocolate are present flavours, but none are overpowering or off-putting (especially to someone, like me, who doesn’t like coffee). I enjoyed this blend a little, and I loved the caffeine boost, but ultimately I prefer my tea without coffee!
