29 Tasting Notes
I see some chocolate chips in this little sampler, I feel like I’m in for something tasty, or at least hope so!
Smells chocolatey, little less on the chai side but definitely get some of the black tea in there.
I definitely expected this to have more flavour so I put the leaves back in again to steep a little longer. You get a little bit of warmth from the peppercorns, and can definitely detect the chocolate but none of it is strong. A bit boring in the end but any more steeping would make it way too pepper-y. Ah well.
My partner got 25 g of this last night for us to try this morning. I’m not a coffee drinker, but this has a lovely flavour. You can see the coffee beans in among the leaves, and the colour after steeping makes it look like a strong dark coffee. But the flavour doesn’t knock your boots off, it’s actually very smooth. The blend of the coffee and the pu’erh works really well, and it gets nice and creamy when you add a little milk.
Got a cup to-go from David’s this evening. You can really smell both the chocolate and the mint and unlike some “chocolate” teas I can actually taste it in this one! And it doesn’t suffer from letting the bag just hang out in the to-go cup, which is always a plus when you’re taking your tea for a walk!
