Thanks again for the fun sale, Cameron B! I have no idea what chocolate digestive cookies taste like. They seem to be a not-American cookie. However, this tea is lovely. It has a unique flavor… never tasted this in a tea before. It kind of takes over the cup and it’s also hard to describe. Both steeps tasted very similar, with only a hint of chocolate. It was mostly that added flavor — or possibly it’s a combination of all these odd ingredients that make it seem like an added flavor? The cardamom, cocoa, fenugreek and licorice. It tastes like none of these flavors, unless they all combine into a new super flavor. To me I can only describe it as DESSERT but it’s such a unique dessert flavor. I wish I could try the cookie to compare! However, though this base is Ceylon, it doesn’t seem like the older weak Ceylon that B&B used. This is a stronger, tastier Ceylon. Both cups were very dark and flavorful so I’m very happy about the new Ceylon!!
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // 18 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 minute steep

I’ve never had this B&B, but I do always keep some British “digestive biscuits” in my house to go with tea, hahahaha. I get the McVities ones! (The Scottish staple!) They are hard, flat, sweet wheat biscuit, and the ones I get are covered in dark chocolate (because who doesn’t love dark chocolate?) but I’ve seen milk chocolate and plain as well. There is this absolutely tiny section of my grocery store that has a few “British” things in it (I live in podunk Idaho and foreign cooking stuff is near impossible to find out here!) so I was shocked when I saw these. Now I buy a pack on every trip just in the hopes they’ll keep stocking them.

All y’all need to come to Canada. Chocolate digestives are in every local grocery and corner store. Really, this is not something easy to find in the States?

Oh, my friend in California could throw a stone and get foreign foods. But where I live in the middle of farm country in Idaho, foreign foods are nil impossible to find… it was EONS before even ONE green tea ice cream finally appeared in a local grocery, and that is my favorite thing in the world. I’m willing to pay the ridiculous price for it. >_>

Yeah, I never heard of Chocolate Digestives until this tea. haha. I will have to intentionally look for them…. but I doubt I will find them in my store. There is no way I’ve seen green tea ice cream. I bet I’d love it though. :D There was a really weird fruit I’ve never seen before for $6. It must have been the foreign food of the week.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
