drank Vanilla Berry Truffle by Art of Tea
382 tasting notes

So I was thinking about the nonexistence of the white chocolate in this tea and I thought that maybe if I added milk it would somehow bring that out. And if I was adding milk, I may as well go all the way and treat it like a chai. Because why not? (note: this is my reasoning for a LOT of stupid things I do)

The end result was, first of all, tasty. And I think the chocolate and vanilla taste really came out BUT now the berry taste has faffed off somewhere. Man, I can’t win! Well ok, there was a slight HINT of berry around the edges of each sip but that was it. In addition (and not particularly surprisingly) the rooibos taste came out a lot more. Hmm, I didn’t bother to save any to cool down and try it iced, but perhaps I should have, maybe the berry taste would come back? I’ll get you next time, Vanilla Berry Truffle!

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.
