sample from an order from forever and a day ago. This one isn’t bad, but it’s very minty and not as much chocolate as i’d like to see. That’s not to say it’s bad, i do like the rooibos in this but it’s more mint than chocolate mint. And is still not contest for peppermint patty. heh

drank Chocolate Blueberry by Thay Tea

several attempts later to make this a cup i can drink, i give up. It’s a black tea that does taste like blueberry, but not chocolate to be found as far as i can taste. it’s also got a bitter sort of taste going on that leaves me wanting more from this. Just not my cup of tea.

Even if the chocolate were present, I’d imagine that blueberries + chocolate are not a great combo?

Sil

i don’t mind chocolate covered blueberries :)

S.G. Sanders

I’ll have to try it :)

I’ve had this a few times now and i’m just not feeling it. Very mild flavour and it comes across as a mostly black, buttery? fat like? tea.

Fjellrev

Do you think that fat-like note would come from the base or a flavouring component? Mind you, I’ve yet to run across a buttery straight black tea.

Sil

the component… large chunks of fatty substance…assuming the cardamom butter

Fjellrev

Oh god, duh. That makes sense. I just wasn’t picturing chunks of that kind of stuff in this.

Lauren | A Quarter to Tea

The large white pieces are actually freeze-dried Asian pear. The butter flavor component is from the base and a natural butter emulsion.

Sil

lauren – thanks for clarifying! the pieces always melt in my mug, so i always think that’s where it’s coming from heh

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.
