Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this.

I like this OK, but I wish I had read the description and ingredient list before I brewed it, as it does contain yerba mate in it and as it is now 9:50 pm I am hoping it doesn’t keep me awake all night… however, I did just yawn as I typed that, so perhaps it won’t.

The chocolate is deliciously rich, but, I wish this didn’t have carob in it. Normally, I don’t mind carob in a tea, but, here, it seems to impart a cheap chocolate flavor … like “diet” chocolate, if you know what I mean. You know how you can just taste when something is low fat that should be fattening, like low fat milk? I happen to prefer low fat milk, but, you can definitely TASTE the difference between low fat milk and whole milk. And that’s what I’m tasting here, a “diet” tasting chocolate, only this isn’t the preferred chocolate taste (that is, I prefer low fat milk to whole milk, but, I prefer whole-fat chocolate to diet chocolate).

I do like the flavor of the coconut here, it isn’t a strong flavor, but it adds a nice creamy dimension to the profile of the cup. Overall, a very pleasant cup of tea, just not my favorite chocolate tea.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
