drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
270 tasting notes

Day 25 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. Had to do this one today because it met the requirements of being a) not in the calendar, and b) being a Christmas-themed tea.

IT SMELLS SO MUCH LIKE A CHOCOLATE ORANGE, IT’S REDICULOUS. And delicious. And wonderful.

Around 2 [tablware] teaspoons in my 2-cupper teapot. I honestly wish it tasted more like it smells — I remember brewing it before and enjoying the taste better. Still pleasant, but not quite as good as the last time. Thinking it might be better if brewed for an individual cup, but we’ll have to see about that another day.

It does get bitter if steeped too long, but not overly unpleasantly so — it brings out the taste of the orange. Still better fresh, unless you add milk to cut the bitterness (the good ol’fashioned British way).

Putting this down as 81 for now, may raise the rating later if I’m correct and it tastes a lot better brewed in-cup.
