The boss man is out of town for the weekend with his cycling team doing a training camp of sorts. I’m at home. On the sofa. It’s totally quiet. The kids are in bed. I need something incredibly indulgent to celebrate. Enter Tisano Cacao “tea”.

This is a funny drink to call tea, but I’m not one to argue semantics, it’s a plant product, so cool, it’s an herbal tea. It also gets the title of my new favorite herbal tea. Holy smokes. I love super duper dark chocolate, think one notch sweeter than baker’s chocolate. This tea is actually a little sweeter than even that, but it is so rich and smooth with absolutely no additions. The only addition I added was some Hojicha in my second cup to add a little extra roastiness to it.

Ahhh… alone on my couch, the tv all mine, no one making any requests of me, and this cacao tea in my hand. Shhh…. I’m savoring.

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
