I made a huge mug of this. In hindsight, I wish I’d started with a smaller mug for my first try. The chocolate is there, but there’s another sort of weird flavor too. The leaf had a huge amount of chocolatey ingredients compared to tea, which is fine with me. There’s just something about this blend that isn’t coming together as well as their caramel brownie flavor. When it cooled, I enjoyed it a lot more. I didn’t notice the weird flavor, and there was a bit of saltiness that worked well with the chocolate (possibly just my imagination). Getting through the mug wasn’t too terrible after all.

So we had a blackout for 3 hours starting at 5:38 pm. I know that because that’s the time that was still on the stove when the power finally came back 3 hours later after we finished the dinner that my poor brother-in-law had to figure out how to cook without an oven. Thankfully we have a natural gas BBQ so he went out into the snow and cooked dinner that way. Of course we just finished the celebratory dessert lit by cell phone flashlights and portable bulbs when they came back on.

So with power comes a working kettle and tea. Plus a working frother and it is Christmas after all so an eggnog latte. I grabbed this tea because it seemed festive and though I have never had a yule log, this boasts flavors like chocolate, which tend to do well as lattes.

Drinking it now, its not bad. It is also not very interesting. Honestly, its a standard chocolate-y tea. The sort of chocolate that is like cheap quality milk chocolate that is neither as sweet or creamy as proper milk chocolate should be.

The dry leaf for this tea was my favourite smelling tea of all the Pud samples that I got – which was promising because it was also the only one of the teas that wasn’t available in a smaller size, so I got the next size up because I still wanted to try it…

I tried it last night, and I did actually really enjoy it! The mouthfeel is REALLY oily because of all the melted down chocolate/fudge pieces in the blend but if you set that fact aside the chocolate flavour itself is very smooth and rich. It’s like a moist or more fudgey piece of chocolate cake, which I suppose is what a “Yule Log” is!? I know that a Yule Log is a dessert (I think cake) in the shape of a traditional Yule Log but I don’t think it’s something that’s necessarily very popular in North America? I have seen them before, though! This is like the third UK based company I’ve seen this year with a Yule Log tea though, so maybe it’s a bigger thing ‘across the pond’? I’m not sure, though…

Anyway, this is not my favourite tea that I’ve had from Pud so far but I thought it was nice and I definitely don’t regret going for the larger size.

Yule sounds bit Nordic, but I have heard about Yule Log somewhere else. But where? In English classes? Honestly, I don’t know :)

Yule Log is a cake here, rolled and decorated to look like a log. Supposedly a special log was chosen and decorated with ribbon and greenery or berries to be lit on Christmas Eve. The log was lit as festivities began and hopefully was big enough that no one needed to tend the fire until the end of the partying. I have also read a tradition that the log was chosen by the servants and they were off duty as long as it burned, so a very big log indeed would have been chosen. Don’t know how much is true and how much tradition.
