Isn’t it satisfying when you go back to one of the teas you loved really early in your tea career, and it is still amazingly delicious? That is true of this tea. Just lucky to stumble across a good one early, I guess. This is so tasty: nutty and chocolatey in a really awesome way, with a light sweet caramel underneath. A chocolate tea that does it without chocolate chips! I love that. And even if this is an older tea, it is still very flavorful and aging well.

ETA: Wow, the first part of this tasting note must not have copied when I had to resubmit it. There was another paragraph! Anyway, that one basically said: This is the oldest tea in my cupboard, or at least the oldest continuous tea in my cupboard. I actually have two tins of it, and neither are the original that I got years ago.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Nuts

Bio

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: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
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: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
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.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
