Thanks to Lazey for this sample. I am taking a break from sipdowns (mostly because I have no one-cup sipdowns left) to try some teas I got in recent swaps before I forget who they came from.
They are not kidding when they say there are chocolate curls in this tea. There are tons! And they definitely dissolve and make the tea a murky brown. They do add a certain thickness to the tea, but not quite enough really. It becomes some kind of half-tea-half-hot chocolate mixture. I didn’t really taste the base tea much, although what was there was fine and not bitter or astringent.
All in all this is a pretty tasty tea, but I think I prefer not to have actual chocolate pieces in my tea. A really chocolatey tea doesn’t need them, and they just murkify everything.
