Yay sipdown! 393/403.
I usually prefer my herbals cold, but I’m eager to get this one out of my cupboard. Maybe I’ll have half hot and put the rest in the fridge.
Or maybe I’ll just chug this and not put myself through a second sitting of this. It’s not so great. First of all, I don’t like how the website only lists some of the ingredients. There is definitely fennel and hibiscus in this, but they aren’t listed. Anyway, it’s a bit creamy, but it’s just…okay. Not something I’m sad to see go.
I was eyeing this for a sipdown, but there’s enough for at least two more cups, boooo. But I really enjoy it, so I’m not that upset. It’s full of yummy berries and earthy pu-erh. I have a sore throat (thanks, mother in law), and this is soothing it wonderfully.
This tea reminds me how much I love just straight black teas. This is also a sipdown! 372 with tea/382 with teaware. We’re trying to establish a one in, one out in regards to buying new tea, so I’m trying to make up for the 50 new teas we’ve ordered in the last few weeks. This is lovely, but I have so much Nepal black and other straight black teas that I don’t feel the need to replace it. It’s sweet and bracing and yummy.
I really, really wish this wasn’t dark chocolate.
That being said, this chocolate bar really wowed me. I’m a fan of Hot Lips and the flavor really carried through. The front of the bite is all chocolate, but then it mellows and out comes the hot lips, a sweet cinnamon that is so, so good. It burns just a bit and then it’s gone.
This is good. I won’t be buying more due to it being a dark chocolate, but it is very good.
