I really love this tea blend! When I ordered this, I knew I would probably enjoy it; I was absolutely right, and have been drinking it a lot!
This has everything I love in a tea. Not fussy, good anytime of day, resteeps wonderfully for another cup, and most important – so delicious!
Beautiful dry leaf that brews a fulfilling, smooth and and perfectly balanced cup of tea, with notes of honeyed malt, cocoa, pastries and a hint of fruitiness.
This is my perfect anytime tea, and I actually wish I bought more than just one tin!
Gorgeous leaf with light reddish-amber crumbles which must be the osmanthus flowers. Fragrant as well as visually pretty.
Brews a clear, pale yellow color. Lovely candy-like and floral aroma. Tastes sweet, creamy and custard-like, and very delicious!. Brewed leaves four times with abundant flavor in each.
Thank you Tea Ave for your generosity in sending this beautiful tea to try!
I haven’t had a cup of cocoa in ages; when I was a child, my mom used to make it once in awhile as a treat and although I have drank it as an adult, it has been some time.
This ground cocoa is really fantastic and much more delicious and satisfying than the regular powdered cocoa I have had before – so much chocolate in both smell and taste!! I added a small amount of sugar and milk to my brewed cup and it really was perfectly delicious. I’d say that I can detect subtle coconut but not so much cinnamon.
I brewed 2-3 heaping teaspoons in about 6 ounces boiling water in a brew basket for probably around 15 minutes. Later on I used the grounds again with leftover tea leaves from the morning and it was even more delicious – super chocolate tea!! Very happy with this yummy comforting treat!
Compared to teavivre’s golden tipped version, the dry leaf of this is larger and darker with a bit of gold. Scent is slightly less fragrant but still lovely.
Brews a darker cup and tastes more of chocolate and less potato, so perhaps a wee bit less delicate in taste as compared to the golden tip. Very delicious!!
I am glad I bought this and have gone through my bag quickly. I will certainly restock.
