Backlog from Friday morning.
Steep notes – 2 tsp. leaf, 8 oz. water, some milk, no sweetener.
The dry leaf smell is heavenly – pure dark chocolate! I love dark chocolate so this is promising. After steeping it still smells the same, so yay! And initially the flavor is matches up too – but then there’s kind of an artificial aftertaste taking away from that awesomeness. Maybe I used too much leaf? Or oversteeped? I don’t know. The other thing is that even with the milk it seems kind of thin in texture.
Of all the teas from my Della Terra order, I was least impressed with this one. But, on the plus side, I have only had one cup, so I’m sure I can tweak it! Maybe more of a latte style will work with this blend, since its taste is so reminiscent of hot chocolate.
