Many thanks to SimplyJenW for this tea!!!!

This is my “I’m done my final paper/poster/presentation wheeeeeeee!” tea treat! I thought it would be lovely to have a nice tea with some chocolate happiness infused throughout :) This does not disappoint. The tea base is excellent. The play between the chocolate roasty notes in the tea, and the added chocolate flavor is really, really, nice. I’m having it at work sans additions, and it is a pleasure to drink unadorned.

Thank you so much Jen! This is so lovely!

Thing to try – on my second steep I put a little Emperor’s Red in and oh! yum! Major roasty with the chocolate!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
