Advent Calendar [11/24]
I wasn’t entirely looking forward to this one. The scent reminded me of the chocolate teas I was once obsessed with when I got into teas several years ago. I knew it had Stevia and natural flavouring as well. I’m not entirely opposed to all added flavours (I probably wouldn’t go to David’s if I was), but it has to be done well.
I found this tea to be very smoky with a mild hint of chocolate at the end. Better yet, I found it to be like cocoa powder mixed in water that’s been boiled over a campfire. I wasn’t pleased or displeased. It was just sort of weird. I think it took me most of the morning to sip down.
This morning, I’m going to make myself a tea latte using this tea. If I had eggnog, it would probably make a fantastic eggnog latte. We shall see how it goes.
