I somehow forgot to log this the day I had the first sample. It was yummy. But I guess I was busy at work and forgot about it.
This steep is a sipdown from my sample from sil I got recently. Anyhow, I have had a headache off and on since yesterday afternoon and slept in a bit. Snuggled with the hubby a bit too. So I like a nice strong black when I have a headache, and usually gravitate to a straight black. Since hubby tends to prefer straight black with milk and sugar over super frou frou teas, I usually make some for both of us. I was going to make some Keemun from Red Blossom that also came in my sample box, and he said fine to, but then I said, “or I can do this black one with toffee, do you want to share that?” and of course he said yes. I know my man and his caramel toffee sweet tooth, so I made this up for us both, and used a large spoonful of sweetened condensed milk (still out of regular milk) each. So we each have a super creamy and sweet black tea with a touch of toffee in there, which is comforting. I just want to gulp this down.
I bet if I had used the dark chocolate milk in here, he would have swooned. Chocolate and toffee? :P
This is a pretty good tea, and tells me that I need some kind of maple/caramel/toffee type of black tea in my rotation. I’m gonna look on the ground first, before looking to the interwebz for some. But this is good, so I will keep it in mind.
