This smells amazing! Glad the bags are sealed well. Irish creamy goodness. Saw very few chocolate drops, which was fine by me.

Steeped, it’s less appealing. There’s a hint of astringency, and bitterness. Truvia perks it up a bit and helps with the bitterness but not the astringency. I’m getting faint irish cream here, and more so when it was piping hot. Need to fiddle I think, perhaps with less of a steep and slightly lower temperature.

Dear god does this smell delicious. It’s a heavy sweet creamy smell, with a dominant but not overpowering chocolate scent as well.

The initial taste is black tea, but the chocolate cream sweetness rushes in soon after, and lingers strongly in the after-taste. The taste is deep, and I think worthy of the ‘Irish’ in the name. I can see this going well with alcohol, actually, which is weird coming from a teetotaller like me.

This would be equally delicious with milk, I think. But testing that would require trekking all the way back upstairs to get some, and I’m lazy.

The tea base is strong and only faintly bitter. I’m sure the added flavours would be stronger with a loner steep time (the package said 3-5 minutes, I did 3 1/4). The flavours seem to have faded in later sips. They’re still there, though. I should try five minutes for my next attempt. I was originally going to go with five minutes, but changed my mind at the last moment.

It seems to be getting a bit more bitter the more it cools. Not good for the added flavours.

Also, it took a bit of will-power, but I kept myself from picking out the chocolate bits and eating them.

There’s chocolate in this? Don’t get me wrong, I Iove chocolate, but I think the name should reflect all ingredients. This gives me the impression it’s just a straight Irish Cream flavored tea. I’m kinda tempted to order 52teas’ version.


I had originally planned to buy 52Teas’ version, but I was in the shop and saw this one; it was a purchase of opportunity.

I hadn’t actually realized it had chocolate in it until she started scooping it into the bag. However, it has more of a heavy thick cream taste than a chocolate taste. It’s more of just after-taste of cocoa. I think the chocolate drops themselves added are more for show. To tempt tea drinkers into picking them out and eating them.

Sip down over here. I’m enjoying the last of it iced. Didn’t think it would work that well as an iced tea but it has proved me wrong. It’s like a creamy sweet, mildly chocolatey iced black without any actual cream. Totally get why I’ve gone through 150g of this.

Nice, smooth taste with sweet undertones. Not much else to say right now because I’m in the middle of a flood of assignments and midterms. :P

A sample from Miss B. If nothing else, it certainly smells amazing! It’s another one that fills the whole kitchen with its glorious aroma. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it around 4 minutes in boiling water. It brewed up pretty dark, so I added a splash of milk. You can tell straight away that there’s chocolate in this one, because there’s an oily scrim that develops on the surface. It doesn’t affect the flavour or texture, though, so not a big issue. At least the chocolate melted!

To taste, there’s a very light irish cream flavour and a stronger, rich undertone of chocolate. It’s not nearly as flavourful as the scent would have me believe, which is a shame. It pleasant to drink, though – smooth, rich, and not overpowering, and it does taste of what it’s supposed to. The only memory I have to compare this one to is Butiki’s Irish Cream Cheesecake, which was a finicky brew but simply amazing when done right. This one isn’t quite on a par, but it’s a good contender. I’m finding that the irish cream flavour develops a little more as it cools, which is a welcome discovery. It’s a comforting cup of yum, no question!

From the Teeny Tiny Tea Box!

This tea smells like just your average black tea. There were tiny nodes of… tan stuff in it? It looked like tiny chunks of brown sugar or something.
Steeping it, it smells like a bright black tea. No irish cream smell.

Tasting it… blech. I don’t know??? Is this how Irish Cream is supposed to smell like? Maybe it’s just gone bad since I’ve had it for so long D:

Reading all the other notes, I think my tea has just gone bad. Darn. I wish I drank it when I got it!

I’ve never had Irish Cream before, but I did have the chance to try it a couple months ago! I took a class called Wines, Beers and Spirits where we mainly learned about the process of making wines and different wines and all. Of the 20 meetings we had, 18 of them was wine related, 1 day for beer, and 1 day for spirits. Spirits day we had 9 different ones and they were in teeny tiny little cups. Probably not even 1/2 an oz of each spirit, but by the end, I was gone hahaha. IT WAS ALL FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES OKAY. But at the end, my professor told us about other stuff and he brought out a thing of Bailey’s and all the people who wanted to could get a taste of Bailey’s, but I opted out bc I couldn’t hold that much alcohol in my body ahha.
I’m a lightweight okay. I’m like 5 foot 2, weighing 110 pounds, and I always just limit myself to 1 drink whenever I go out with my friends, and that’s probably just once a month. So yes, very much a lightweight ahhaha.

(Sorry everyone, I’d accidentally logged this under Davidstea instead of Tea Desire)

I’m just logging this so that I remember drinking it

Nothing is really standing out while it’s hot. Just another flavoured black tea.

Thanks to MissB for sending some along!

I think I’m definitely moving in the opposite direction of a lot of these teas.

In the bag this smelled faintly creamy; there were some chocolate chips mixed in amongst the black tea and I was salivating over the prospect of a rich, creamy-sweet breakfast tea.

Instead, this tastes like bananas. I wish that I could pick up the chocolate or the cream, but instead I’m simply getting a banana front flavour with black tea behind; as someone who loathes bananas, this obviously isn’t the tea for me.

Down the sink it goes, I’m afraid.

How strange! Ireland is the last place I think of when I think bananas!


Yeah, I have to agree…it was rather startling. :/
