Tea #12 from the ‘Here’s Hoping’ teabox.

I made the mistake of reading the reviews before trying this tea, so I was set not to like it. Turns out, though, that this is a decent herbal. The chocolate adds plenty of sweetness, and the spice is there, but it is also fairly mellow. This seems like a great tea for those late nights when I want some chai but I also want to sleep at some point. That being said, I think this would be awesome added to a mid-grade Assam. Seriously yummy.

I should definitely add some of this to some Assam. I knew there was a certain black tea that would be perfect with this one. Nice idea!

If you try it let me know what you think. It seems like it would be a nice chocolate chai.

I did try this a couple days ago. Mixed with assam, it is perfect. It gives it a fuller flavor that is missing when it is just the zocolatte blend.

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
