I thought I’d finally try this today, received a sample weeks ago from the awesome Tastybrew as I’d been dying to try it.

So I made it at work this morning, which means I didn’t pay any attention to temperature and lost track of how long I steeped it. Making a tea like this at work is probably never a great idea. Anyhow of course I got distracted and it was really cooled down by the time I got to it, however I was still able to enjoy it.

People talk about the original being chocolatey which I still laugh at when I read, because I feel like I will never get there. It’s as roasty and strong tasting as the original, however this one is DEFINITELY chocolatey.

I am looking forward to my second steep which will likely be tomorrow morning, because I probably let this around sit 2-3 min this morning.

Thanks to Tastybrew for this precious sample!

Bio

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
