I added milk to the tea just to see what it would do (I’m sure I’ve commited some horrible blasphemy by doing so, but whatever). The brew immediately took on an appearance a lot closer to hot chocolate than to tea. But as for the taste it didn’t really do anything for the tea at all, good or bad. Oh well.

Love the new updates BTW. _

Glad you like the updates!

I’ll have to try something like this. I’ve a fan of hot chocolate (I end up getting it a lot at coffee shops because I don’t like coffee) and would like to try the tea version of hot chocolate.

Well the taste itself isn’t very hot chocolate-like, more like raw cocoa powder mixed with nutmeg mixed with a touch of vanilla mixed with something…earthy/wood-like.

The chocolate tea that I REALLY love is Adagio’s Chocolate Chip black, tea which I totally recommend if you haven’t tried it. :)

I think the blaspheming was committed when they mixed chocolate and pu-erh XD

Have you had Lupicia’s chocolat marron, and tried it with milk? I’m curious to the hot-cocoa-ishness comparison of these two.

Jillian

Nope, Lupicia doesn’t sell north of the border unfortunately, though I always like to try new teas so if you’re interested I could trade you for something in my stash. :)

This is actually my first pu-erh tea so I have nothing to compare it against. Taken by itself though I think it’s pretty decent, if a little strange.

Chocolate Chip Bark = added to shopping list
Now all I need is that money thing I’ve been hearing about…

Cofftea

Ditto on Adagio’s Chocolate Chip. This is the ONE pu erh you’d get me to try. Milk is a very good idea. I’d go chocolate.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
