I love hot cocoa and I love black tea, so the idea of chocolate tea was amazing to me. I figured I’d grab a sample since I wanted to try a few of Adagio’s other teas.

It smells like really good chocolate. I sort of hovered over my teapot sniffing the air while I waited for it to steep, because yum.

On first sip, I wasn’t really enamored of the taste. The tea was decent, but the chocolate part just tasted like watery chocolate. Also, it was a little bit chalky, like baker’s chocolate. It wasn’t bad at all, but it wasn’t the rich, chocolatey flavor I was expecting after smelling it. I added a little bit (half a teaspoon, maybe?) of sugar to the second cup, and that brought the chocolate flavor out a bit better and got rid of the chalkiness.

I’m not going to rate this one yet, because I have the feeling it would be amazing with just a tiny dollop of almond milk, and I’m out. But it is pretty good.

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
