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.
