drank Checkmate by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

I needed to wind down after work today so I chose this little number. I’m glad I did because drinking this today…I discovered new flavours :D Maybe it was how I had the water today or what dry tea scooped into my teaspoon exactly, but I’m finally getting that chocolate sensation that’s described, yay!! It’s very light in the liqueur, but that’s good since there’s not actually chocolate in this blend. Verses something like Love Tea #7 where I expect it to be heavy on the chocolate since it’s actually in it. Yeah, this is a great tea if you want a real treat but don’t want one of DT’s more, er….“gimmicky” teas? Not that it’s a bad thing…but Checkmate feels more natural yet still fun c:
P.S. Upping my rating again x3

Tea is a lifestyle. It’s a constant for me. Each day is different, thus variety is very important for my tea shelf ^^

Besides always being seen with a mug of tea in hand, I also frequent piano playing, cuddling teh kittehs, drawing, reading, walking along beaches, bla bla bla…..you get the drift.
