I’ve actually never ordered this tea on its own; it has always been as a sample going with another one. The first time I got it, it was in this interesting little red packet with Chinese characters on it. Anyways it really is as chocolaty as everyone says! At first I had the cup to my mouth and I was like “naw it’s in all these people’s minds and…WHOAH” It was like taking a bite into milk chocolate. I’ve actually had 100% cacao before, so I could tell what was cacao about this tea and what was milky/creamy. I couldn’t help but keep steeping it and it started to take on some more nutty tastes. When I could steep no more I decided to eat the leaves. It was still kind of chocolaty only with kind of an asparagus/vegetable taste. Goes great with peanut-butter!
