drank Chocolate Chip by Adagio Teas
2 tasting notes

I really expected to hate this tea. It smelled delicious in the tin, but I could not reconcile chocolate and black tea together in my head.

I’m learning that I like my tea a bit stronger than normal, so I cut the suggested heat down from 212 to 180 and brewed 8 minutes instead of 5. I also used a bit more tea.

Not really the best tea I have had when plain. Sipping it tastes like black tea, with a slight watery chocolate aftertaste. However a small amount of cream and sugar (which I really, really usually despise in any tea) made it delicious for me. For my tastebuds, the cream and sugar definitely perked up the chocolate taste for me.

Today was cold and rainy, and I didn’t get home til midnight – this was a great tea to warm up and relax with while surfing the net tonight!
