Another tea I had forgotten I had. I didn’t have the greatest teavana experiences early on ( and now I never go ) so I guess I kind of blocked out their tea and forgot about it.
Used 2 tsps in the Davids big mug about 3/4 full….possibly over steeped as Lily the cat was trying to climb into the dresser and got stuck and needed help getting out – silly Lily! I used a tiny bit of rock sugar and frothed1% milk. I bet it would be even nicer with a light cream. This tea is pretty good- I get a strong chocolate smell and taste, and I really like that, and no bitterness. I wish this was decaf so I could drink it at night. I love chocolate and did buy some fancy hot chocolate mix from thomas haas, a local chocolatier, which is wonderful – but the calories!! This would be a great low cal, healthier alternative.
About half way through my cup I added a little shot of starbucks peppermint syrup…..good, but I think it was fine on its own. I am liking it! Maybe teavana is worth another look….( I know to beware the upsell)….well, home from swimming…..is it ever going to stop raining? Kind of want to go to Ikea, but never really find that very pleasant and would rather stay home with Lilycat and my chocolate mint tea….
