Got a sample of this from a swap with QueenofTarts. Thanks!

These leaves are interesting; skinny little guys, aren’t they? Not getting much of a chocolate smell, but that could be due in part to fact that I’m still getting over a yucky sinus thing and can’t smell much of anything.

In terms of taste, I actually found the flavoring to be very subtle. A malty black tea with a hint of chocolate notes, rather than “WHAM! Chocolate!”. (Although, again, still getting over a sinus thing, so that may have played into it a bit.)

I enjoyed it (2 steeps – one sweetened, one not) and will happily finish off the sample, but it’s not likely to be a purchase for me.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
