Take this review with a grain of salt, keeping in mind that I haven’t been a coffee drinker in years and I generally don’t like coffee aftertaste (though I still love the smell of it in the morning.) But I asked Randi at LuxBerry to put together four samples of their most unique or signature blends, and this was one of the ones they included, so I’m giving it a try.
The dry leaf smells delicious. It smells exactly like those coffee creams you get in assorted boxes of chocolate. So far so good. I even eat those sometimes and don’t dislike them. Steeped, the liquor is deep brown and smells the same way. That chocolate, coffee, creamy, sweet, candy-like smell.
The sip is less sweet than it smells, and there’s a touch of that coffee sourness, which is one thing I dislike about coffee. It’s not bad though.
Actually this is quite good. I really love the smell, and the flavour is nice. It’s drinkable straight, but adding milk and sugar makes it better. The coffee flavour is mild and this kind of reminds me of hot chocolate with a splash of coffee to make it a mocha.
Not something I would reach for very often, but definitely worth trying, particularly if you’re a coffee drinker (I assume?) Much better than I expected, and better than other tea & coffee blends, which I’m kind of vaguely recall trying and I think I might have blocked out.
Flavors: Candy, Chocolate, Coffee, Creamy, Sweet
