1449 Tasting Notes
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.
So around 3 pm yesterday, I put a big batch of this in the fridge to cold brew. When I told my wife, her immediate response was “WILL IT BE READY WHEN I GET HOME??”
She gets home at 6 >.<
I strained out the tea this morning before we headed out to see my bestie back in Etobicoke. I poured a thermos for me to take on the road, a glass for my wife to enjoy right then, and a bottle for my bestie…and then it was all gone, ha!!
When my bestie tried it, her eyes went wide. “THIS IS SO GOOD! You always have the best tea…” Heeeee! Made me so happy, I love sharing tea with people. This is definitely on the repurchase list, and I promised I’d get some for her too. Heck, my wife was excited about the cold brew, and she doesn’t like cold tea. All in all, this tea is just a huge win.
