I also ordered the coconut chai with this order. Had to let the teas sit out a bit to be able to smell the dry tea without the chai clinging to it! :)

I can smell a bit of the cacao in the dry tea and I can see the nibs. At least that is what I assume the cacao content is in this blend – nibs. While steeping it smells like a solid black tea. The wet leaves definitely smell of cacao. Brewed, there is a slight taste of chocolate. Light and not bitter at all, even at 5 minutes steeping. A solid blend.

You can steep this for 20 minutes with no bitter notes :)

Nice. :) And drinking it with raspberry gelato brings out the cocoa notes, I just found out. :)

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
