Had another cup of this while taking a break from the office, they finally let me buy a bag to take home! So excited! So yummy…I understeeped it out of fear of over steeping, but it was still delicious. I brought home 50 grams for the wife.

It’s an amazing combination, it’s chocolatey without being overly so, and it just really hits the spot.

Edited to add: There is apparently no chocolate in this! It just combines flavors to trick your mind into tasting chocolate. Ingredients: Bai Mu Dan, black tea, chamomile, and coconut.

How interesting! Any idea when the winter stuff is out?

DavidsTea is so brilliant with chamomile sometimes! Can’t wait :D

November 1 for winter teas, and that is the retirement date for fall teas as well.

Amariel

I agree with you on that one Daisy.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
