60 tasting notes

This is the last of this tea in my stash. I can’t believe I haven’t added a note about it before. The smell of the dry leaves is very chocolatey, the leaves are dark and of good size with large cocoa nib chunks. When brewed the chocolate smell is there but more in the background, it is a pleasantly smelling tea. The tea is a dark orange/brown. The taste is sadly lacking the chocolate that is promised in the smell of the dry leaves. I tried brewing for longer, adding milk or sugar or milk and sugar and it was still an ok tea but lacking the chocolate promised by the aroma of the dried leaves. I had to leave early one day so I stuck what was left of my pot in the fridge. I poured myself a glass later that afternoon and low and behold there was the chocolate. I think for a better alround chocolate tea experience I would probably go with Florence but if you are looking for chocolate ice tea this is a good one.

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
