So...this was my 3rd pint of Tea-Rrific Ice Cream. The first 2 were definitely unique and for the most part, pretty damn good! This flavor sounded interesting, plus it had some mix ins unlike the previous 2 pints. Chunky London Mist is described as "Malty and Citrusy Earl Grey Tea with Chocolate Flakes and Roasted Pecans".
I took off the lid and noticed that this pint was a bit lighter than the other ones. The ice cream was also about 1/8 of an inch down the carton. Evaporation? Short changed on the fill-up? Whatever the case, no big deal, it was just really obvious when I removed the lid. I noticed the tan colored base as well as a chocolate flake peeking through as well as what looked like a pecan. I took a bite and it tasted good! As with their other 2 pints, their product is so unique and unlike anything else in the market, its difficult to describe in words exactly what it tastes like. I'm not a regular tea drinker either so I am no expert on what "tea notes" I should be looking for. You could definitely tell it had some "tea" in there, though. The overwhelming aftertaste was what was in the description....Malty! Every bite left a malty aftertaste and feeling on the tongue. It was great! I didn't taste any citrus while eating the ice cream, but later on, during a burp, I got a slight orange peel taste. Disgusting, I know, but I found it interesting how the citrusy part came way later in the aftermath of a belch! The mix ins were kind of sparse. The chocolate provided some nice texture and something to chew on though. The roasted pecans were pretty small but they were nice and crunchy and tasted great!
Overall, this pint was very good. The smooth base, malty aftertaste, super sneaky citrus after effects as well as some chocolate and pecans make this one a winner. I would definitely buy it again. It may not be as great as their Chamomile flavor, but it is still a rock solid choice and definitely something to try if you want something unique and different!
