Had a nice visit with an old friend this afternoon, and after she left I felt like spending my last afternoon of holidays browsing Steepster and drinking tea. I brewed up a big mug of Chocolate Cake and went pretty hard on the agave.
This tea is more greasy than I remember it being. Don’t get me wrong, the grease is delicious (lets face it, most grease is) but its a little weird and acts as a marker for how much tea you drink every time you pick up the mug.
Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed that mug and still had a hankering for more tea. Someone here had mentioned mixing Salted Caramel with Chocolate Cake.
Don’t mind if I do!
Made a big mug of that (half and half of each type of tea) and used a big ol’ spoonful of agave. The first sip was just….angels singing. Chocolate came through first, then as you swallowed the caramel came out. It was amazing.
Throughout the rest of the glass, some sips tasted more like chocolate cake and other tasted more like caramel. The sips where you got equal amounts of each flavour were the BEST. I’m definitely going to be mixing these two again.

I like that she puts pictures of each step for culinary-challenged people like myself.

I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
