I was hoping this would satisfy my craving for nutella on toast (or croissant, or waffle, or…anything. What doesn’t go with nutella?) The flavors were subtle; the chocolate and hazelnut were mildly there, but it was lacking that certain something.

Then I added milk and sugar, which smoothed it out and enhanced the flavors a bit, but still didn’t result in that “pow!” that I was hoping for. I guess it’s just not that kind of tea, and that’s ok; now that I know what it’s all about I can accept it for what it is. And it was a nice cup. Thank you to whatshesaid for the sample!

That’s what happened to me, but I just recently upgraded my chocolate hazelnut spread to something more natural, and I think this tea is closer to that. :)

I just got it this week and it’s so much less sugary, and more hazelnutty. It actually has a nutty texture too. It’s Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter blend. I got it at whole foods, and it’s more expensive than Nutella, but I got it on sale. ;)

Bio

I recently discovered loose leaf after a long and uninspiring relationship with teabags. I’ve been in love ever since (sorry bags, I just don’t feel that spark anymore).

Food is a passion for me and my love of scents and flavors has translated into an excitement for trying new teas. I’m trying to expand my palate with all different types, and currently my favorites are oolongs and greens.
