The ingredients sounded like a great combination so I picked up 50g based on that and a whiff of the sample in-store.

Brewed 1 1/3 tsps of it for 5 1/2 minutes as I prefer my teas a bit stronger, but I didn’t want to risk it turning bitter. I actually measured it this time as to follow the directions so I think I ended up with less than I would have put in had I just ‘eyed’ it.

You can really smell the chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla.

The first few sips made me think of a really weak hot chocolate which was disappointing. Further sips helped me to appreciate the cinnamon and vanilla mixing in. I don’t really notice the coconut but maybe it’s just there to make the blend sweet. I didn’t have to add any sweetener which is unusual for me and black teas.

Overall it was good but not great. I suspect that if I add cream or milk to it, I would enjoy the blend a lot more.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.

76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
