When my package from Design a Tea arrived last week I could smell this before I even opened the package. Not the bag with the tea, the PACKAGE that all of the teas came IN. Ever since I have been smelling it whenever I open my tea cabinet. Today was the day, I vowed
So, after steeping this tea is a very dark, murky amber. The murkiness being from sediment due to the chocolate chips. I tried without sugar first and was saddened to find that the liquor did not taste nearly as chocolaty as the dry leaf had smelled. With sugar there was definitely an improvement on the level of chocolate on my tastebuds. So I tried adding milk. The chocolate level was the same but there was a smoother finish and the liquor felt almost silky.
I think next time I drink this I will try doubling the leaf amount. Definitely better than the Chocolate Raspberry blend though.
