My internet is still being a piece of shit unfortunately. DX

Anyway I had this with breakfast and it has quite a kick, maybe a bit too much of a kick for early in the morning.

Maybe you should look into getting a different ISP? ;-) This tea sounds a bit weird. Was it chocolate with a typical pu-erh (soy, fish, mushroom flavors)?

Also, when do you sleep?!

LOL, I’m in the Pacific Time, way across the continent from you guys in NYC. But I also tend to keep odd hours so I’ll be awake until 2am and then sleep until 12 noon. :D

As for the tea I’ve never has traditional pu-erh, but from what other people have said this is sort of a cheap immitation. To me it has a strong, earthy, dark taste to it if that makes any sense. But the cocoa flavour pretty much dominates the tea. If you want you can go back and read some of my previous tasting notes about it.

H&STS (sorry… lazy… lol)… It’s AMAZING! The depth and complexities can be compared to (in my brain) to coffee… so think of a coffee w/ very strong cocoa notes… but I’ve actually never found a coffee w/ such strong cocoa notes as this… Mixing a good strong chocolate flavored tea w/ a coffee flavored tea might be close, but I don’t think the complexity would even be close.

I actually don’t get a coffee flavour at all out of it – otherwise I probably wouldn’t drink it! It certainly looks like black coffee though.

lol:) I wonder what another coffee drinker would think.

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!)
