Today’s a great day. Not only did my first 52teas order come in, but so did my package of TeaFrog samples.
I wanted to try this one first because as soon as I opened the pouch, the smell reminded me of Tea Desire’s Irish Cream, which I’ve always enjoyed. Comparing them side by side though, there are definitely some differences. While Irish Cream is sweeter and creamier, Chocolate and Cream has more chocolate, and it even smells like chocolate liqueur or something. Or like a chocolate truffle with a few drops of rum.
Wow, is this every chocolately. It’s like biting into a bar of dark chocolate. While the steeped tea smells like milk chocolate, the flavour is bolder. Colour me impressed! It’s like drinking hot cocoa. The real stuff.
Ok, so I just cheated, at least in my books. I almost never add any sweeteners nor milk/cream but halfway through my cup, I decided to add a couple tablespoons of milk. It’s actually pretty good. Turns this more into, well, milk chocolate. The aroma smells more bakery-like too.
