“Pretty decent tea, but I felt like it tasted slightly as if the nuts were going rancid (I know, there are no nuts, only sunflower seeds). However, I easily got over that and drank the entire cup...” Read full tasting note
“The nuttiness from the sunflower seeds works here. Still, somehow, clearly sunflower seeds. I’d like more chocolate. I’d like more vanilla. I’d like more marshmallow. But then, to...” Read full tasting note

Tea of the Week for February 6, 2017!

I’m pretty sure that Frank had a Rocky Road tea at one point because I recall asking him to reblend it several years ago – I had never tasted it but I had found the tea description in his archives and I wanted to try it so I do remember asking him to reblend it. He never did.

So since I can no longer retrieve any of those archived teas and it doesn’t show up at Steepster, I’m just going to call this my blend.

I started with Laoshan black teas from Verdant for their chocolate-y character. Then I chose a rich, malty Assamica tea from the Jingmai Mountains. Then I added some Golden Yunnan tea to round out the flavors. To this, I added roasted cacao nibs, cacao shells, marshmallow root, sunflower seeds and vegan dark and white chocolate chips.

And yes, I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again now: YUM!

ingredients: black teas, roasted & salted sunflower seeds and vegan white & dark chocolate chips

organic ingredients: black tea, cacao nibs & shells, marshmallow root and natural flavors
