Second cup of the day: a nice mug of Ceylon Star.
Dry, this smells like chocolate through and through. The mix is so pretty with the whole star anise and coconut flakes. Once brewed, the tea has a much milder chocolate scent. I don’t get the spicy, licorice scent that others are getting, but then again, I still getting over this cold.
This tastes soooooooo good! I can taste the chocolate and coconut. The star anise is just in the background as a mild spiciness. Not licorice, which I was worried it would be. Adding a tiny bit of sugar accented the chocolate. Adding 2% milk didn’t enhance the tea at all, but it didn’t detract from it either. All in all, I’m glad I picked this one up.
