drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
741 tasting notes

i’m watching the final Fringe episodes right now!

update (2 months later)
cuz that wasn’t a review hah

well, i remember when i first tried this i was not impressed. it kinda just smelled like other teas i’d already had and the taste wasn’t as strong as other teas. but this time the scent just kept wafting from the brewed cup. and i just kept looking down at my little cup on the floor (cuz i sit on the floor a lot) and thinking – wow i don’t remember you smelling so good little tea. xo

so this is a chocolate desert tea yes, but i feel like it has a sense of humor. i don’t know if i would really buy it again but i do know that i will enjoy the steeps i do have left with a bubbly attitude.

oh ps: and i do have a used teabag cold brewing in the fridge so i’ll let you know if that turns out interestingly.

So sad :( What an awesome show. I have the last season left to watch but I’ve been putting it off hoping the outcome will change.

I keep reading about this cold brewing and assumed it just meant that you’re making iced tea but your comments lead me to believe you actually use COLD water? hmm.

Cold brewing is awesome! I think people all have their own little way of doing it, but I put a bunch of tea (like 4-5 teaspoons, sometimes more) in a mason jar with cold or room temp water. Then you put it in the fridge, and depending on how much you used, how strong you want it, etc. you can leave it for 6 hours, overnight, a few days, whatever you like. It tends to bring out different flavors, and I’ve found it makes hibiscus less sour/tart.

Tea leaves also release less caffeine when cold-brewed.

I’m intrigued and need to try this immediately
