This tea. Is making me want to go adjust my other ratings lower so that it can be a higher 100. It’s another perfect tea for me.

I took a big whiff of the bag and my nose starting running. :D!
First sip. Hoochie mama that’s got a nice spice! And what’s this, mm a chocolate hit right after? I must have got a good blend because it’s just the right amount of chocolate with the spices. And now the chai-ness comes through. Gosh, this is lovely.

mmm a few sips in and I’m feeling the burn. But loving it mmah!

So I enhance my experience by making whipped cream with cocoa powder. And then I accidentally dumped like 5 tablespoons of cocoa instead of the teaspoon I was hoping for. So I went with it. Made a huge batch of chocolate whipped cream for later. For my subsequent cups of this tea! mm! It tones down the spice just a notch and I like it.

SO glad I bought 2 bags! Thank you Frankie!

Did you put any whipped cream on your tea? My dear, I do believe that all you are missing is a splash of peppermint schnapps. :)

Ho yes. SO much whipped cream on my tea! It’s delightful, but to be honest it’s because I bought whipping cream because they were out of half and half AND coffee creamer. I don’t have peppermint schnapps but I do have chocolate liquer… I’ll be back, I have to make some tea :D

Can you share with me how you made it. I was so looking forward to this tea and when I got it I was so underwhelmed by it that I haven’t even been able to rate it.

For sure, I did just one heaping teaspoon in a little under one cup of water (one cup being the size of my mug, not necessarily one actual cup) and then a bit of milk. I steeped for.. I’ll say about 5 minutes. It was kind of watery-ish, so that’s where my whipped cream came in. I didn’t sweeten the whipped cream a lot, but the addition of the cocoa made it like a slightly bitter dark chocolate taste, so I felt that made the tea how it came to be! That’s why I’m wondering if I got an especially good blend in the chocolate area, because the reviews are all over the place for this one hey?

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
