This morning, I was looking for something smooth and comforting. This tea fits the bill nicely. I’m a little surprised I haven’t logged this tea yet since I’ve had it for a while. I bought this, along with a bunch of other stuff, when SpecialTeas was going out of business (70% off everything!).
The flavor combination sounded kinda weird to me, but considering the price, I figured it wouldn’t be much of a loss. Well I’m glad I got it. Even though it took some getting used to, I find it really comforting these days. It’s very smooth and slightly nutty. I’m getting to the bottom of the bag now where all the cocoa kernels have been hiding. As a result, my tea is now more chocolatey. Score!
I oversteeped this morning, but it was barely bitter. yay.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
