Thank you Dhart1214 for this sample tea! Again!

#3in the tea taste trio challenge from Dhart1214!

Surely Swiss Chocolate Tea with chocolate chips in it would taste
completely different than Strawberry and Blueberry…I mean come on…it’s CHOCOLATE! I could SEE the big chocolate chips!

The aroma was cocoa (however that was a pretty light scent).

Just like the previous 2 tea’s, the taste was creamy smooth, a little sweet and very lightly cocoa but BITTER! More than BRISK!
WHEW!

Remembering (only a few minutes ago) the sweetening effect, I added a little which tempered the bitterness slightly. Then I added more which helped more. Then some more until the tea was drinkable but sweet.

I ended up with a tea that tasted odd. Not like cocoa but like frosting out of a pre-made container. Betty Crocker artificial Swiss Chocolate Frosting in a can!

These tea’s are not for people who want a tea straight without additions.

There you have it Dhart1214. No, they didn’t all taste the same.
What was the same is…they are SUGAR BANDITS!

Not long after these tastings I got a kicking me in the head migraine (not a headache really a face and nausea one)…hope the tea’s didn’t have anything to do with it…flavorings or whatever.

Thank you so much Bonnie. I rarely add sweetener to my teas. I didn’t realize it could make such a difference.
