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.
