Chesnut flavoring always smells a bit weird to me, so this tea definitely has that smell… and I’m finding it comforting. I wish there were more chocolate in here than just at the end of the sip, and it’s very much a milk, light chocolate flavor. The chestnuts come through in the flavor as well, although I doubt I’d know if someone didn’t tell me. Still, really creamy, vanilla-y, kinda roasty (almost) and comforting. I can see myself ordering more of this eventually.

Yay for Lupicia orders, and for having a tea mule to grab packages for me across the border from my box over there! :)

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
