From August Uncommon Tea

Malty black tea with chocolate and dark cherry

Rich and luxurious from the start, the aroma of warm chocolate cake emerging from the oven fills your nose. Close your eyes to imagine the warm wooden, gilded interior of a café in Turn-of-the-Century Vienna. On its own, this tea is a strong, malty black tea with hints of cherry weaves around the layers of dark chocolate. A touch of milk softens the tannins and brings out the fruity sweetness of cherry. An excellent choice for breakfast or afternoon with cake, or anytime you need a chocolate fix. A tea for chocolate lovers and black forest cake fans.

INGREDIENTS: indian assam black tea, cacao shells, german barley malt, german dark chocolate pieces, morello cherry, natural flavoring
contains gluten and soya lecithin

TASTES LIKE: bittersweet cocoa, chocolate cake, brandied cherry
FEELS LIKE: the vienna secession

This was an evening cuppa after work, last week, and boy howdy did it taste boozy. Like, deep and rich notes of chocolate and black cherry that were an indulgent as they were divine and accurate, but accompanied by this really alcohol almost vodka like flavour that was so eerie that I had to go and check the ingredients to make sure that there wasn’t actually anything alcohol in the blend.

So after some initial pondering (Do I even like flavored teas anymore? What’s happening to my taste buds?), I decided that there is room in my life for both flavored and unflavored blacks – which brings me pretty much full circle. I needed a dessert-like tea after dinner last night so I chose Cabaret.

It tasted like chocolate cake with boozy cherry filling. It’s really good, and definitely hits the sweet spot for a sugar addict like me who’s trying to cut down on the thing she loves most for health reasons. August has some very tasty flavors, and this one is no exception. The only thing I don’t find so great is the booziness of the fruit notes. I had a similar issue with Breathless, where the brandy flavored prune flavor was a bit off. I solved that by making it iced, and that seemed to cut down on the strange tangy flavor. This one, however, I don’t see as an iced tea, so I’ll try to cut down on the leaf to see if that helps. August seems to always want you to use lots of leaf per serving – maybe they really want the flavor to be very intense, or maybe they just want you to go through the tea faster so you can order more – not sure. I don’t mind cutting down on the amount just a little to see if I can still get my chocolate fix without such a strong alcohol flavor. Other than that, the chocolate + cherry flavor is a winner for me.

This seems to be a new offering from August Uncommon, and one that I added to my most recent order of holiday gifts. When I first sipped this, I didn’t think I liked it. There was a bitterness to the dark chocolate that wasn’t pleasant. But, as it cooled, it really began to taste like a chocolate cherry cake right out of the oven. August Uncommon has done it again.
