drank Choco by Yogi Tea
3704 tasting notes

I’m not a chai lover and I didn’t like cacao so I am probably not the target audience for This tea. Still, as I sip this, I can see it being a favourite among those who do enjoy those teas. When I took my first sip, I immediately thought Mexican hot chocolate. However, it goes beyond that. The barley base keeps this from being too dense but also contributes a nice roastiness. The vanilla is also a nice touch as it adds a touch of brightness to the cup. There is also a nice warmth from one of the spices, I’m thinking it’s ginger but I might be wrong about that. Overall, it’s not something I would reach for but it’s a tea I would certainly recommend. Thank you MissB and Sil for the opportunity to try it out!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
