drank White Chocolate by sTEAp Shoppe
4923 tasting notes

So i have a confession, which isn’t that big of a deal, but i hate white chocolate. it’s like chocolate, only without the “good” stuff. Cavocorax was awesome enough to let me steal a cup of this tea from our order with Janet at the steap shoppe (big shout out to janet for her amazing customer service by the way!).

The dry blend smells delicious. It’s chocolate and yet not quite the chocolate smell that i associate with white chocolate. There’s an undertone of vanilla in the smell as well. There is rose hip in here, but there is nothing floral about this blend.

The liquid form of this tea could be called white chocolate, but i’m not sure if i’ve ever had white chocolate that tastes like this :) My other half says that this does taste like white chocolate, at the end of the sip. I’m getting more of a vanilla chocolate taste, but it’s still pretty good and the tea base is nice. I think this could be one of those teas i enjoy from time to time while not a regular member of my official lineup lol
thanks again cavo for letting me sneak some of this before i send it to you! (also yay for not having to add it to my cupboard)

You’re not alone in hating white chocolate! I couldn’t eat it now anyway, but the only point to it I could ever see is making less of a mess when ‘eaten’ by little kids. For values of ‘eaten’ which involve getting on face, getting on clothes, getting in hair…

Wait… didn’t I order this one!?

Kittenna

Oh – I see we both did :D Whew!

silly goose. I figured if i snuck a taste from cavo, you would have more to share with raritea if she wanted a try lol since i’m sending stuff to cavo currently anyway heh

I’m not normally into white chocolate either – it tastes kinda fake and plasticky to me. Maybe I just buy too much cheap chocolate. As a tea I have better hopes though. It can’t possibly taste like plastic!

Sil

it doesn’t lol

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.
