Near the movie theatre is a “cupcake cafe” that has coffee and Tea Forte teas. While I’m really not a fan of Tea Forte, I figured I’d get something nonetheless to go with my cupcake. And my cupcake was terrible so I’ve got this tea to fall back on.
I ended up picking this because I thought it would be coconut and chocolate. Of course it isn’t, which is terrible because coco to me is coconut, cocoa would make a lot more sense.
So clearly I looked it up on the way home, while it was steeping. And I was a bit iffy on the spices but every other note seemed positive and I wasn’t too worried about the licorice root after that. Because it steeped so long and because it was still scorching hot to hold the cup and I wanted to drink it already, I added a little bit of milk just in case.
It amazingly tastes like hot chocolate. It even has the body of hot chocolate rather than tea. The spices give the chocolate a good, rounded flavor. They don’t really make it spicy and you definitely can’t tell what’s actually in there.
With this tea, who even needs a cupcake?
