This is a nice tea. It definitely smells like chocolate in the bag. I used 1 heaping teaspoon (after realizing I was only using a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon…oops) and steeped for 4 minutes. It still smells like chocolate, but more faintly. I tried this tea straight up, not adding milk as usual. I like it. I didn’t add anything to it at all, which is highly unusual for me and black teas. The chocolate is definitely there but very subtle. I think I need to just start doubling what the package recommends from the get go. I will try 2 heaping teaspoons next time.

I don’t know a whole lot about tea, but want to explore it more and remember the journey!

I am a 30-something year old wife and stay-at-home-mother of one. When I have time to myself I enjoy tv, classical music, reading, knitting, and math puzzles. But mostly I spend my time playing play doh and dollhouse, coloring, and creating with Legos.

I’m trying to figure out the best system for rating each tea. Unfortunately it’s not easy to pick out an exact number on my iPad (which is what I use most frequently), so my ratings must be in a range.

0-20: This was terrible, my husband can drink the rest.
21-45: This tea was drinkable.
46-70: I enjoyed this but not enough to purchase again.
71-99: I enjoyed this and would buy it again.
100: One of my favorites; it will always be in my cupboard.
