drank Swiss Chocolate by The Tea Haus
554 tasting notes

So, technically speaking, I shouldn’t be reviewing this tea yet… but I’m going to. haha
I made this tea this morning, but I made it half this and half hazelnut cream (from the Tea Haus).

Many, many moons ago, (okay, only about 5yrs ago) I worked for a Canadian chocolate company. I loved it (until right at the end. By that time I was ready to start a career elsewhere. Sadly, five years later, I still don’t have that career. That fell apart about a year and a half ago. But I must say, it definitely was for the better looking back. That job was slowly killing me. Okay, that’s probably a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much. Mentally it was too much.)
ANYWAYS, so when I was working for this chocolate place, I heard about chocolate covered hazelnuts. I had never been willing to try them before ‘cause I’m not the biggest nut fan and I figured that I wouldn’t like them. But once I started at this company and I was encouraged to try all of the chocolates we sold, I thought I’d give it a try.
That moment forward, I fell in love with hazelnuts. And when they were covered in chocolate, they were even better!

So, when a few of us went together and placed our Tea Haus order, I knew I wanted to try this one and the Hazelnut Cream. I put in one teaspoon of each one into my steeper and did the three minute steep like it recommends. It is delicious! I’m so happy to have finally tried it.

If you like chocolate, and you like hazelnuts, or if you just like chocolate covered hazelnuts, mix the two together. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
I want to try this one on its own too ’cause I have a feeling it might taste just like a hot chocolate with milk and sugar added of course. It already sort of has that taste. :)

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
