Just when I was back under 800 teas, a package from the super lovely Kittenna showed up with some AQ2T blends from a group order that I was waiting on and a BUNCH of tea samples! Tea friends really are the best, and most generous! I’ve got one ready to send out to her as well, just gotta make it down to the post office…
This is one of several one cup tea samples that she sent; I love getting able to quickly taste new teas this way without the guilt of having extra sample hanging around for ages afterwards!
This probably isn’t a flavour profile I’d go out of my way to buy – I don’t like coffee or chocolate flavours in my tea all that much and I’m kind of neutral about actual tiramisu. So, this is the perfect way to capture a snap impression of it! Immediately it loses points in my mind for the absolute oil slick that the steeped liquor becomes. It’s completely dotted with the fat from all the melted down white chocolate, and it coated my mouth in a rather unpleasant way.
However, that aside I thought the flavour was pretty spot on to Tiramisu. It’s got the coffee intensity right, and there’s a rich creaminess to the flavour along with a good dose of chocolate. As I said, I’m not the customer for this flavour profile but if I was then I think I’d feel pretty satisfied with the taste of this tea.
Thanks for sharing!
