drank Spicy Chocolate by Kusmi Tea
2164 tasting notes

Yesterday I was at the Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco which is one place you can get the mini 1 oz. Kusmi tins. I have had the “Russian” series but this is the “Afternoon” series I am currently working on.

Yeah, it’s the morning and not the afternoon but I am drinking this anyway! I’m not normally a huge fan of chocolate teas but I do kinda like this. It definitely reminds me of a chocolate chai and has a peppery element with some cinnamon in it. I added some soymilk and it is really good that way. Some of the reviews here are mixed, but I liked it pretty well.

I covet your grocery store options!

It’s true, I am very lucky. But this is the only one I have found that carries Kusmi stuff. :)

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
