Mystery mate tea to go. I decided to be bold and go for something other than my Strawberry Slender Pu Erh, which is my failsafe tea from Teavana. I couldn’t decide between a few of the mates and told the fellow to pick one for me while I browsed the tea accessory area. This is what he made me. It’s pretty good, though even as I had asked for milk and sugar, that was once again, neglected. He made this into my timolino directly, so I opted to try keeping the leaves for a further infusion.
I’ll have to go into more detail on the flavor when I have a little more time after work, and I have had more of it to decipher what I’m tasting.

It’s definitely chocolatey, and I do get the nutty taste too. I am one who loves nutty teas, and I especially love hazelnut. Hazelnut lattes are my have. In the simplest word, I’d say this tea is cozy. Though I am getting a tart and juicy aftertaste too. Not sure if it is me or the tea.
I saved the first infusion of leaves and am attempting my second, now that I am home. And have a bathroom so near. I swear this made me pee more than usual today. :P
