After coming home from being outside all day I needed something to warm me up. Yeah, it was relatively very warm for winter today, but that wind was still biting. I decided to steep this one in a cup of hot cocoa. Mmm, tea hot cocoa. I think the flavor that’s coming to the forefront here is the ginger, though it took me a bit to identify it. It definitely works well with the chocolate. The other flavors make a kind of spicey background but aren’t very distinct through the cocoa. This was a good tea for this kind of brewing because it had enough spice to come through the cocoa.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
