I was feeling fancy tonight and since I just got some small teacups, I decided to have a TEA PARTY!

Okay … it was just me at the tea party, but it felt like a special occasion, which I guess is the whole point.

I picked this tea because I wanted a dessert substitute and because I have so little left, I figured it would get me close to a sipdown. I also happened to have some rock sugar on hand, and decided tonight would be a good time to test it with this tea. You know, because it was a party, after all, and parties revolve around sweet things.

Hot, the sugar transforms this to Generic Chocolate Tea. Just above lukewarm, it has a very oily mouthfeel and leaves me with the sense that I’ve just eaten peanut butter — I can almost taste it. Cold, the berry notes are prominent and I really enjoy it.

I don’t think sweetening was the way to go with this tea. It was enjoyable enough, but just felt too weird to me. Though, points, I guess, for making it more desserty than usual.

Meh.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
