I kind of forgot I even had this until the Vancouver meet-up was drawing near and figured I should pass some of this down to everyone. OMGsrsly was sneaky and entered the data from the site before I would have. :p But sorry if anyone thinks my picture is sub-par.
I picked up a tin in Edmonton before coming back to the Island the other month. This has always been my favourite tea of theirs. Not that I tried a ton of theirs, maybe six or so, but Chocolate Dipped Strawberry warranted a repurchase after finishing my previous tin back when I was in Sweden.
The smell of the dry leaf is heavenly. Strawberry, cocoa, and something delicately creamy. I want to just bury my nose in the tin. The scent reminds me of a strawberry cream-filled chocolate you find in assorted chocolate boxes.
The base can take over easily if you’re not careful, so I make sure to let the freshly boiled water cool a little before pouring it.
Without any additives, it’s quite yummy. I can detect all three notes mentioned above. I added a little bit of brown sugar this time, and eh, not too crazy over it that way. Then I added some 1% milk and it’s pretty good. Makes it taste more like milk chocolate, unsurprisingly.
I wonder what would happen if I added chocolate milk to this. I’m going to be brave and do that next time.
