I got this one as a Christmas gift from a friend, and just got the chance to try it.
I must admit, the first smell of this one steeped, I was very unsure of it. The first steeping I did, I only did a few minutes, as I didn’t want it to be too strong or go bitter (forgetting this is a herbal tea). My first few sips, I was so unsure. I added a sprinkling of sugar to it, and it really made this tea pop! It became a sweet chocolately treat.
Second steeping, I actually forgot about it for like 5 to 10 mins or so. Maybe longer, I’m not too sure. I was sorta worried that it might have gone bitter or too strong for me to handle, but after adding another sprinkling of sugar, it was pretty good! But it was missing something. I added a splash of milk to it (which normally I would NEVER do with a herbal), and it made this tea come alive for me! It transformed into almost a smooth, chocolatey chai tea. I say smooth, because it didn’t have the same punch that a chai normally has; it was a softer chai taste, but still had that little extra to it. The second cup was inhaled!
I could see this one holding up in a latte for sure, if you make it strong. I must try it! I’ll update this when I do.

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
