Started having a typical morning – I got up, let out the rabbit, Benson, then attempted to leave the area to make tea. Benson was not having a typical morning of running around and he trapped me in the room by jumping on my feet and nosing me. So I sat with him, petting and feeding him snacks for awhile. I’m dying for my morning cup of tea and noticed his fur has been changing colour again. When he was a baby it was black and grey. He then got more and more black. Now he’s shedding and he’s looking kinda chocolately brown black. Mmmm.. chocolate tea? I finally was able to leave once he started playing in the cardboard boxes on the other side of the room.

Chocolate Cake Teaaaa! (from Kittena)

DRY: forgot, lol! Dying for tea!

STEEPED: Dark brown tea that is slight cloudy. Chocolate liquor smell. Quite a lot of debris on the bottom of the cup.

TASTE: Slightly creamy, chocolately and pretty sweet. I found the black tea a little weak, but that could of been me skimping out on the dry leaves or needed a long steep.
I didn’t realized this tea would be so sweet, but I saved a half a cup sweetened with rock sugar. With that, it’s really sweet and still creamy chocolately.

OBSERVATION: this tea left a weird residue in my steeper that I had to scrub out with soapy water. Globby white blobs, I’m guessing from the sprinkles.

COMMENTS: Not bad, I’d love to try this one again. Would love to just go heavy on leaves and have a chocolate overload.

Excuse me, need to feed the bunny some bok choi.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
