Maybe it is because I feel adventurous or crazy, but probably just because I wasn’t sure a third infusion of this Yunnan would produce a strong enough cup….either way, I decided to make hot chocolate with tea instead of water. Perhaps that isn’t strange to some, but I just never pictured chocolate and tea together. (I have made hot chocolate with coffee several times, though). After recently trying and loving the mint chocolate oolong, maybe this will actually be good.
It is pretty good. I think I was right about the Yunnan not making it for a full third infusion, the tea out of the pot was pretty light in color. The flavor is mostly hot chocolate with a taste of ‘something’ which is obviously the tea, but I don’t think I would have guessed that it was tea if I didn’t make it myself. I really want to try this hot chocolate/tea thing with a first infusion of tea to see if the tea taste is stronger….project for tomorrow. :D
