Cavocorax was so nice to send a package of samples and this is the first tea that I’m trying. I’ve been wanting to try this one for awhile, and just the smell of the dry leaves alone is living up to my expectations; very sweet and sugary like icing. There are cute little black and white chocolate chips and red and white sprinkles mixed in with the dry leaves. There’s just something about sprinkles that always makes me smile! The flavor is overwhelmingly sweet with a nice chocolatey finish. Adding just a touch of milk makes a very creamy and smooth cup. I’m loving this tea this morning and will be adding it to my shopping list. Thanks, Cavocorax!

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
