Another sample from ozli, who has done a great job doubling my tea collection with all the samples she has sent me!

I used the entire package to make a 12oz cup but I wish I had held a little back to experiment with. I love the banana chocolate aroma. I really like how it tastes too, but it’s just slightly astringent and I’m not sure if a shorter steep time or a splash of cream is all I need to make this 90+.

Maybe I’ll try it again if they bring it back next winter!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 30 sec

I had four perfect cups of this when I only had a sample amount. My tin has been lackluster so far, however. I’m extremely disappointed with the discrepancy. Maybe I had more chocolate and banana in the sample bag..

It’s a winter-only one, too?? At least I ordered a tin of Cocomint. :D

It’s part of the winter collection so they may pull it from stores in the spring, but I think you can still buy those ones online!

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.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
