This stuff is seriously amazing! SERIOUSLY amazing. If you’ve ever had a traditional cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate than you’ve had something similar to this, because this tastes so much like the hot chocolate that my Latina friends would serve in their homes when I was younger. Sweet with chocolate – rich and creamy, but also with enough spice to keep it from being the cloyingly rich, sickeningly sweet cup of hot chocolate that comes from one of those individually wrapped, foil-lined pouches from the grocery store.

There is so much to the flavor here – I taste every element! I taste a hint of rose, I taste a very subtle note of chamomile, The chocolate is rich and has it’s own unique dimensions with the roasted and the raw chocolate notes. I taste the ginger and cinnamon and chipotle, and I even taste just a hint of star anise (for those of you who don’t like anise, you needn’t worry, it is so very subtle that I doubt it’s presence would disrupt your enjoyment) … every element works so harmoniously with the other ingredients, and the result is something better than the individual parts could produce.

Amazing. AHHH-mazZZING!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
