Hmm…I wasn’t expecting much out of this – since I wasn’t really in the mood for an orange tea – but I’ll admit I was pleasantly surprised by how delightfully chocolate it is. Right after brewing it smells almost exactly like a tootsie roll and there’s enough rich chocolate flavour in the cup to make good on that promise.

Not to say that the orange doesn’t flavour prominently in this cup, also – there’s a definite citrus-orange note in the middle of each mouthful – but there’s also a smoky (almost chalky) hint that catches you right at the end that’s almost unpleasant.

My main complaint with this cup is actually that the pu erh is hardly noticeable amidst the layers of flavouring. This is a shame since I actually enjoy the nuance in some pu erhs…but overall the cup is an enjoyable one.

Bio

Overstressed college senior…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things.

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
