I had high hopes for this tea since I’d been reading a lot of hype about it & I love chocolate. You can smell the chocolate in the dry leaves, but I didn’t really taste it. I needed cream & sweetener to get through this straight; it had too much of a heavy/overpowering black tea taste to me. I mix this w/chai now to lessen the harsh black tea flavor.

ETA: Mixed it with my 52Teas Mint Chocolate Honeybush & enjoying both much better! Still not tasting much chocolate, but the honeybush is balancing the overpowering black tea taste I was getting from straight Florence. Raising the rating.

Bio

After getting sick for the third time within about a three-month period I decided to try and drown it out with tea. I never liked tea growing up, but in my early twenties my taste buds had finally changed enough to find the flavors.

Started with flavored blacks from Teavana (gasp), and now am primarily a white/green tea drinker. I’ve recently fallen in love with matcha.

I love teapots, tea cups, and tea sets, but mainly use my Timolino or Contigo travel mugs because they’re leak-proof and hold the heat for so long! Drinking a cup of tea before it gets cold usually doesn’t happen as I set it down and get distracted with something else only to return to it when it’s (if I’m lucky) lukewarm.
