Okay…so…both Anne and I have reviewed this tea, briefly, over at Steepster and I thought I would post my official review today here at SororiTEA Sisters because I had a cup yesterday and two cups so far today and seemed to be craving this more and more lately.
Let me start off by saying…I LOVE CHEESECAKE. I’m not much of a dessert person, overall, but I do LOVE Cheesecake! And I like chocolate, sure, but I can’t say I must have chocolate everyday like some people do. On the other hand I HAVE been searching for good, solid, true Chocolaty tasting teas and I must say – this is one of them!
I also must put on the table – this statement – I prefer this DECAF Version of this than the regular offering by 52 Teas. I am pointing this out for several reasons! One…I don’t think I have ever enjoyed a Decaf version better than the regular version. Sometimes I feel they are pretty “even-steven” but rarely – if ever – do I find them MUCH better tasting – if you know what I mean!? Another reason is the difference in actual taste between the two versions and how noticeable the tastes are. And third – those taste differences being – mainly – the taste of the chocolate and the taste of the cheesecake-likeness!
Now…on to the actual tasting notes for this tea…
Prior to infusion this smells just like a Chocolate Cheesecake WOULD or SHOULD. The taste is not as spicy – which I like for a chocolate cheesecake type. After spending some time with this tea I found by doubling the amount – but not the infusion length (per say) – I could taste both the chocolate and the cheesecake flavors MORE and I prefer it that way, actually. The Chocolate Flavors are sweet and sugary and milky. The Cheesecake is fairly cheesecake-like and almost frothy-tasting…creamy! The chai spices are present but more in the background. I will say that if you are specifically looking for those chai spices – try a 2nd infusion on this one! I did and it wasn’t bad at all!
This is not only a tea – but a piece of ART. I LOVE it!
