drank Black Forest by Yawn
244 tasting notes

This one smells super chocolatey and tastes like chocolate-covered cherries. The long and diverse list of ingredients confuses me, because in the end it still tastes straight-up like chocolate-covered cherries, so I’m not sure what—if anything—all those other ingredients add to the mix.

Be a little careful steeping this one. In my thus far limited experience of Yawn tea, the black tea base they use tends to get bitter pretty quickly. I’d stay close to the three-minute mark and be generous with the cream and/or sweetener, if that’s your kind of thing.

If you like chocolate-covered cherries, I think you’ll like this one. I love them and love this. And while I couldn’t find any info about particular certifications, this is vegan.

Flavors: Cherry, Chocolate

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

2012.10.07: I hear people like to understand other people’s ratings, so here’s a loose guide:

01-29: Dear God, why.
30-49: I’ll finish this cup, I guess, but no more.
50-59: Meh.
60-69: Decent. Maybe I can blend it with something else and make it better.
70-79: Heeey, this is quite good!
80-89: I love it, but I’m not in love with it.
90-100: Permanently resident in my Happy Place.

Update: I have steeped, and it was good. =] Still a tea-ophyte, though.

This is a tea site, so I feel like “well, I’m Indian” should be enough of an introduction. Because, I mean, it’s kind of in my genes, right? But the fact of the matter is that I’m an absolute tea-ophyte.

I’ve just discovered a world beyond Celestial Seasonings. I’ve just discovered “sachets” instead of “normal” tea bags and bought my first loose tea sampler. I don’t get the whole water temperature and steep time thing yet, nor that if I want to get a yixiang tea pot, I’d need one for each type of tea. I have this infuser ball thing, but I haven’t used it yet.

Don’t cringe, but right now I’m still just boiling water and pouring it over a teabag, adding some sugar, and drinking a nice, hot cuppa. I’d like to learn more, I think, and I’d like to train my palate. I figure participating in this community is the best way to do that.

So ya. Hi!
