Thanks to Ninavampi for a large sample of this tea! The dry leaf aroma is strongly caramel and chocolate. Yum! Totally mouthwatering. I tried it first sans additions and it was okay. It’s much more enjoyable with milk and sugar. The sugar brings out the caramel and chocolate flavors more, and the milk cuts the bitterness of the base.

With additions, this is a yummy dessert tea that delivers what it promises. It’s not like eating a Ghirardelli chocolate square, but it’s also way fewer calories than the real thing. This reminds me of 52teas’ Cashew Turtle. It’s not quite as good as that, but it’s pretty close. This is a safe bet if you’re a fan of chocolate/caramel combos. Thanks again, Ninavampi!!

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
