drank Spicy Chocolate by Kusmi Tea

Yes. I approve!

Also, this is really especially good if you take a sip of it right after taking a bite out of a chocolate bar. I suspect this is a secret that applies to ALMOST every tea.

But barring (ha) the chocolate bar, this is still very good. Is that an assam back there? I’m not sure, but the base is nice, and the spices are good. And should be identifiable. Nutmeg, and cinnamon maybe? And a little bit of chocolate. To be fair, there’s never enough chocolate so I always say “a little bit”.

I’ve never ordered from Kusmi or checked them out so I went and checked the website. It’s in French. I clicked on language, and selected Canada, expecting to be given a choice but nope. Apparently we speak French here.

Nous parlons francais ici!

Non, c’est non pas vrais. Or something like that. It’s been 10 years you guys.

Merci beaucoup VariaTEA!

Weird. Especially since the vast majority of Canada is NOT Quebec.

There is an English option on the site but for some reason when you click that majority just remains in French

I noticed that! I clicked on the US but it’s a different site, so I’m curiuos if the shipping is calculated differently depending if you order from the french site or the english one. I may play around with carts to find out.

Cavo, I can always go grab stuff at Kusmi for you. It is literally a block from my apartment.

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)
