drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia
90 tasting notes

Backlog from yesterday. Has a deep, dark chocolate smell when dry, and the black tea leafy smell comes out once steeped. Had mine with a little cream and rock sugar. I only get a faint hint of chocolate taste, but it had a nice creamy body and the almost caramel/toffee note of the black tea. The hunt for a chocolatey tasting black tea continues, but this wasn’t bad.

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.
