A teeny sample from Kittenna! Thank you. :)

This one smelled overwhelmingly of chocolate, and I was worried. I also had a LOT of chocolate chips in the 1.5 tsps or so that Kittenna shared with me, so I was worried about that too.

But! Somehow it works. It smells very much like chocolate something baking in the oven. Chocolate with vanilla. Tasting it, however, and I get the coffee. Weird! Yet also somehow tasty.

I added a tiny bit of sugar and that really brought out the coffee. A dollop of cream, and it’s… berries and coffee and chocolate. Huh. I wouldn’t have expected the chocolate to be so mild!

Thanks so much for sharing, Kittenna. You have aided my goal to Try ALL the Teas! I’m glad I didn’t get this one, it’s not exactly to my taste, although it’s a really interesting blend.

I really liked this one. The espresso note was just right, and god, the strawberries that Stacy uses…err…used, were just top notch!

Perhaps I should have measured/looked at the remnants of the baggie I sent! Though it sounds like you tasted the right things, so it seems to be ok.

OMGsrsly

No worries. I drank the whole cup, thoughtfully. :D
