drank Vanilla Berry Truffle by Art of Tea
382 tasting notes

Back-logging from last night, when I was extremely busy playing video games and therefore had no time for tea-logging :P

So I think this is starting to edge out Chocolate Monkey in terms of general tastiness, but I’m still not getting everything that they say is there. I’ve got the vanilla and the berry sure, it’s very nice and tart and the vanilla smooths it out, but there is aboslutely nothing in the way of chocolate – white or otherwise. And I made sure this time to get two shavings of the stuff in the pot. There was a cloudiness about the tea that reassured me that it was THERE, but I think that I am forced to come to the conclusion that white chocolate simply does not have the personality needed to penetrate through the layers of berry, vanilla, and, of course, rooibos already in the tea.

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
