Depending on how you make this, this tea is either a very nice black tea with an aftertaste of cocoa, or it is a cup of bitter chocolate (in the good way). I think the depth of the chocolate flavor may also depend on the age of the tea. I swear it was stronger when I first opened the package, and I swear I’ve stored it properly – it even came with a tin!

Anyhow, take 2 generous teaspoons of this, steep for 3 minutes, and boom: bitter chocolate bar. If you let it go for too long, the tea itself does get bitter on top of the chocolate, which I do not recommend. A nice afternoon cup of tea, but I do wish it would keep better.

Bio

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
