Tasters Review:

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!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
