Tea #3 from Traveling Tea Box C
This smelled delicious in the bag. Nutty and cocoa vanilla-y. Lol. Kinda like Scorpio Zodiac from Adagio, which is a good nutty, tasty comfort tea for me. So I had high hopes.
I ended up using a tsp and a smidge for this because I’ve found that any tea claiming cocoa in it tends to be weak at the recommended measure. Turns out I probly should’ve used 2 tsp, maybe a bit more.
The hazelnut comes through very nicely and makes the tea plenty nutty. But unfortunately the cocoa falls flat for me and ends up making the whole thing taste like watered down chocolate, or just cocoa water…I guess they’d be interchangeable. Kinda like the cheap instant cocoa mixes you can get that say use water for it. Tastes kinda like that. Ugh Then again, I really haven’t found a ‘chocolate’ tea that I’ve liked, though Dubbele Chocolade comes pretty close. Guess if I want warm chocolate to drink, I’ll just have to make hot cocoa. Lol!
I’m going to give this another shot later with more tea because it certainly has potential to be a good nutty chocolate tea.
