On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me a mug full of … double chocolate decadence tea.
Unfortunately yesterday was a difficult time for me for reasons I won’t go into so instead of a cup of tea I went out and drank wine instead. Therefore I am having to drink this tea today instead of yesterday which just means I have two to pick from today.
I opened the tea this morning and a wave of cocoa powder struck me quite strongly. It’s not chocolate as such, more cocoa nib.
Trying this one first without sugar or milk.
This tastes exactly like a chocolate cigar I once tried, it’s a little bitter and the flavour is strong but just not quite right. It’s not sweet or creamy, I think next time I should add the extra’s and see what I get.
I’m not a fan of cocoa nib at the best of times but today it just tastes rather inedible. Just not to my taste.
