This was the second new tea that I received yesterday, the others were just refills for tea’s that I already have, including some more mom’s apple pie before I can’t get it again!

Dry this tea has a chocolatey cinnamon aroma to it, I really like the dry smell as the chocolate aroma is that of a dark healthy chocolate not that enticing but horrible for you milk chocolate! Steeping the tea brought out more of the cinnamon aroma for me, then again cinnamon is powerful. The chocolate aroma was also very present but a bit softer.

Now we do a complete flip flop! Drinking the tea there is a very chocolatey taste to it, but that cinnamon is still there and reminds your tastebuds they are still alive. I figured for how much of a dry smell the cinnamon had it might have been a little overpowering but this wasn’t true. This one actually reminds me of chocolate chili chai in terms of flavor now that I think about it, minus the slight heat from the chili’s.

I had been really wanting to try this blend forever, but it isn’t one they keep in any of the local stores, and as far as I know it isn’t restricted to online only; however that was the only option for me to purchase it. Now that I have a 100g I am certainly going to spend some time enjoying this tea.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
