Picture of Cocoa Power

Cocoa Power from SerendipiTea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 18th, 2014

The aroma is a great blend of earthy pu-erh, woody sweet rooibos, vanilla sweetness, and loads of chocolate. It is a blend of sweet chocolate candy and rich cocoa powder, mixing the sweet and bittersweet aspects of chocolate. I am glad that it is sweet, but not cloyingly so.

This tea is a cup of cocoa decadence, tha...

Chocolate A-Peel from SerendipiTea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 1st, 2014

The aroma of this particular dessert tea is pretty rich, with strong notes of woody rooibos, creamy cocoa with almost a chocolate liqueur tinge to it, a bit of caramel, a bit of apple, and lastly a potent zing of oranges. It is very sweet and rich, but not too sweet, very much so the difference between a yummy slice of...

Plum Blossom White from Simple Loose Leaf

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 15th, 2014

The aroma of the dried (and rather fluffy) leaves is rich, a blend of heady jasmine, honey, and candy. Specifically it reminds me of these delicious plum gummies I used to get from my local Korean market back in high school. They were all the rage with my friends and me, they have a distinct fresh plum aroma along wit...

Vanilla Mint from Golden Moon Tea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 22nd, 2014

The aroma is predominantly minty with a strong presence of sweet vanilla. Underneath these two dominating smells we have a gentle vegetal note, a subtle smokiness, and a tiny hint of malt.

Oh man, this tea has the best cooling effect, I love how mint teas warm you up and cool you down in the same sip. Combine that w...

Earl Grey Lavender from Revolution Tea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 2nd, 2014

The aroma is loaded with delicate lavender and sharp bergamot, with compliments of mellow muscatel and a hint of malt. This is not like most Earl's, it is more smooth and gentle.

The taste is at first incredibly smooth and fades to a crisp briskness. The base tea blend mixes muscatel and malt flavors with a very sli...

Chocolate Strawberry Mocha from Shanti Tea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 3rd, 2013

I used to drink tons of coffee, the by product of working in a coffee shop as a teenager. I got a bit sick of it, but still love the smell and taste of it on occasion.

The aroma is delightful, a mellow blend of tea mixed with rich chocolate and coffee and a sweet yet slightly tangy kick of strawberry. The smell rem...

Blueberry Green Tea from Wegmans

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 16th, 2013

My perpetual quest for the perfect Blueberry tea might have finally ended. The first thing I noticed about this tea when I opened the large tin at Wegmans were the beautiful leaves. Whole leaves and buds mixed with large dried blueberries and pretty cornflower petals. I am not sure what kind of teas were used in this b...

Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha from Verdant Tea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
May. 30th, 2013

As with a lot of gourmet teas, this one is not very inexpensive so regardless on how much I love it I cannot just guzzle it. It is a special occasion tea! The aroma is that of chocolate, malt, and roasted rice, I could just sniff this tea for hours. Using Laoshan black with a bit of Oolong makes for a fascinating and e...

Christmas Morning Black Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 3rd, 2012

This tea is delightful, though I am still confused about how it is Christmas morning themed! But they are certainly right about the morning part as this is a perfect morning tea.

The aroma is very lovely with hints of green and jasmine and certainly assam. The taste is mild and goes well with a bit of sugar and cre...
