Backlog: Well, it would seem that my experience with this tea is different from the one other poster that logged this tea. I actually quite enjoyed it.

The black tea was smooth and robust, and there was a really lovely buttery note to this. I could taste the toffee and the chocolate and the sweet, nutty flavor of the hazelnut.

I didn’t really like the carob in this though. I found myself wishing it wasn’t there. It doesn’t really give it so much of a chocolate-y flavor as it does a “fake” chocolate-y flavor, and I like my chocolate. My advice would be to eliminate the carob and add some more cacao nibs or perhaps some cacao shells. I think that this would do much to eliminate that odd “artificial” taste to this.

Despite that carob note, this was enjoyable.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
