What an intoxicating smell! Sweet and sticky, chocolate liquor richness to the nose. First sip gave me instant floral notes from one of my favourite flavours, rose. There was a definite fruitiness to the tea as well. Then comes that rich, smooth, almost fatty feeling on the tongue from the chocolate. The black tea was almost lost in the flavouring. This tea was slightly sweeter than most to the point if I added some honey or sugar, it would be too sweet. I want to keep on sipping just so I can inhale that rice aroma! Once it starts to cool, the chocolate dies and dulls and the strawberry takes over. Overall this tea was more appealing then I thought it would be!

5 down – 495 to go!

Bio

Growing up in an Irish family, tea was a staple. A huge, wide mug with lots of milk and sugar. Still to this day I find complete comfort in a nice cuppa Irish tea. But nowadays I have come to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship that goes into tea. I had my first cup of loose leaf Japanese green tea when I was 16 at a pretty fancy (and expensive) Japanese restaurant. After the first sip, I fell in love.

Since then, I’ve been slowly collecting different teas, some of which have been lost to friends, family and ex’s. But I still seem to stock up.

So because of this love and appreciation, I’ve decided to set myself a tea tasting goal! 1000 different teas by my 25th birthday January 12th, 2015. With the help of samples from various tea shops, a tea journal, Steepster account, Tumblr blog and a few tea parties (with tea alcohol and food of course) I plan on accomplishing this goal! You can see my progress on my Steepster account! Cheers and lets get this caffeine induced coma going!

Buying tea can be expensive, I always appreciate samples! :)

Cheers
