drank Earl Grey Chocolat by Lupicia
1082 tasting notes

This tea has been on my wishlist for years and I was finally able to find it during a trip to Paris. It looks like a CTC tea. I know what that looks like, but I’m not sure if it is attributed to the taste I’m noticing. I’ve had other CTC teas by Lupicia, the first being Sweet Potato, so some of the flavors in this remind me of that. That flavor is under a strong amount of bergamot and the chocolate is much more subtle. I have to concentrate to pick out the chocolate which almost seems more aromatic, like chocolate scratch and sniff stickers, but doesn’t have the depth that real chocolate has. I’m enjoying this tea, but I do wish it had more chocolate in it.

On another note…. I really need to start letting my tea cool more. I have noticed that I have been burning my lips and roof of my mouth by trying to enjoy my tea too quickly after steeping. Someday I’ll learn. Maybe.

I still haven’t learned that lesson. I also notice I can drink my hot beverages way hotter than all my friends as a result, because I think I’ve built up more temperature resistence… and that is probably why I keep burning my mouth, boo.

Me too… It’s either too hot or too cold. >.<

My accidental method is to just have so many teas going at once that there’s always a reasonable temperature one to drink. Not saying I recommended it, it just happens :P

So it’s not just me! I like the multiple mug method approach. I’ll have to be more conscious of having a couple mugs going at the same time.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
