drank Vanilla Cacao by Herbal Infusions
4710 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! This one is interesting. I probably should have started with the regular version of this before the vanilla one but you only live once! :) This isn’t a bad tea but there’s a weird taste going on that i don’t like. I have a feeling that if this was just cacao, then i’d likely enjoy it a bit more. We’ll see, as i have both the mint and the regular version from my swap this weekend.

if this is anything like how the mint compares to reg cacao, you will be blown away :P

Recommendation – only steep the cacao for the recommended 3-5 mins. I think it gets a bit barky after that. Idk how long you infused this one, but yeah.

You could be picking up on the rare rosita de cacao that we source from Oaxaca Mexico in this one! It has butterscotch notes with a caramel finish. Good points on steeping time though- the longer it steeps the more the cinnamon will come to the forefront. Check out mint cacao or the original to get a better sense of the base flavour :)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
