Hmmm, I thought I had logged this when I first bought it. Ooops! I guess this will be the overall note having finished off the last of the bag this morning.

You know those chocolate-covered malted milk balls – Whoppers? I HATE them – they are gross to me. Maybe it was the chalkiness of the malted milk ball, or just the way the malted milk ballI tasted, but I was sure I didn’t like malted anything because of them.

I honestly couldn’t tell you why I picked up a bag of this. I guess it was just another shot at trying something that I knew I liked (chocolate and roasted yerba maté). At worst I figured I could trade it out. But this little bag of chocolate malted milk goodness really grew on me. It’s a nice change from the regular non-chocolate black teas I have in the morning. And of course, the last cup of the bag had to be the tastiest!

Sadly I did not take time to measure anything as I was in a rush to get out the door (which is usually the case). I did have this with a bit of milk and rock sugar – this is my method of choice for this tea.

I may be picking up another pouch of this later.

Whoppers were one of the FEW candies I didn’t like either.

Bio

I’m a native Midwesterner (Iowa, specifically) who was happily uprooted to California twice. SoCal is what I consider home, even though I currently don’t live there. I hope to return home again!

Tea has really come to fill the void of my current displacement. My husband & I (with our two tiny weenies) moved to Indiana hardly knowing a soul. It’s been a tougher transition for me than I’d thought it would be. I have amassed a cupboard of teas to keep me company until I feel more familiar in my newer surroundings.

I will refrain from giving numerical values to teas because I am a faddist. My likes and dislikes are constantly changing. Flavored blacks are what I gravitate to the most. Having said that, I do enjoy a wide variety of teas – you name it, I’ll try it. I may not like it today, but I might revisit it later and love it.

Flavor note: I prefer my teas to be bold in flavor. I am starting to come around to drinking tea without additives. But I do like to dirty my tea with rock sugar/simple syrup and sometimes with half-n-half/milk. Unflavored greens are unsweetened, but flavored greens I usually add rock sugar. Lately I have been favoring flavored guayusa and matés.
