drank Spicy Chocolate by Kusmi Tea
56 tasting notes

Ordinarily I wouldn’t invest in something indicated as “spicy,” but since it came in my sampler pack I decided to be bold and try it out.

I actually rather like this. The spice is a “cinnamon and cloves” kind of spicy, not an “Indian cuisine” kind of spicy. (Hey. I always expect the worst.) I don’t taste the chocolate too much, but it’s real subtle in the scent and aftertaste. And the leaves. The leaves are a bit sweeter-smelling than the tea itself.

It’s black tea with a little spicy kick. I approve. Another win from Kusmi!

I have the same misgivings as you when tea says ‘spicy’. Would you say it was very very cinnamon-y or just moderately so? Not too fond of very very cinnamon-y tea.

There wasn’t really a specific spice that stood out for me, so it wasn’t an overpowering cinnamon-y taste. Was a nice mix of things, like the smell of opening up the spice cabinet.

Interesting. I think I might try getting a sample tin sometime. I think I’ve seen the set it’s included in and decided not to get it because I was certain I’d hate this one.

Angela

heh it’s probably the same set I have. Good investment overall, I’d say :)
