Whoa whoa whoa. I am blown away by this! This tastes VERY oily and salty, with a bit of pepper. It reminds me of eating duck in Paris. I only drank this tonight because I’m out of almost everything else and I’m drinking it like most other teas. Not the traditional preparation with milk (which now I know I’ll love even more). Gotta make this the real way tomorrow…

Wait… huh? Salty…?

Yeah, I didn’t do the whole milk thing. I probably will tomorrow because I know it’s supposed to taste like chocolate milk. I used hot water, steeped for 3 minutes, and it tasted incredibly salty and oily. The second cup was much tamer, much more smooth.

Interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever had this without milk. I’ll need to try that sometime.
