Another Tea Pig from my mums tea cupboard. I just finished work and could really do with a chocolate bar right now and while my stomach agrees with me my head is saying “but think of the calories” so instead I chose this chocolate flake tea.

Colour: Reddy brown with a golden glow.
Smell: It actually reminds me of dog chocolate (chocolate that smells more powdery than sweet).

Taste: (Oh please take this chocolate craving away). I can taste cocoa which is again a powdery sort of taste but it’s very subtle. Not sweet or sickly like some chocolate tea’s can be but for me it’s not sweet enough. I don’t want to put more sugar into my tea because thats more calories I could do without. It is bitter as others have mentioned which is probably the black tea being a bit stronger than the cocoa taste. Granted that the more you drink of this tea the more cocoa you can taste and it starts to taste more like a cocoa powder drink just missing the milk rather than an actual tea.

It hasn’t taken my craving for chocolate away but honestly I don’t know if anything other than cocolate could. So instead I have some Diet Chef chocolate chip biscuits to dunk into this to A make it sweeter and B give me the chocolate I crave.

Oh well Tea Pigs, you can’t win us all.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
