Backlog from yesterday.

I agree with other reviewers here that this tea isn’t 100% reminiscent of chocolate. There’s an underlying yeastiness/breadiness/alkalinity to it that reminds me, at best, of the dark cookie parts of an Oreo cookie (as opposed to the cream filling).

*OMGsrsly" compared this to Ovaltine before; I’m not very familiar with Ovaltine myself, but I think the comparison is accurate.

Thank you, MissB!

To sum up: Harrod’s does not understand what chocolate tastes like.

This is not chocolate.

This is ovaltine or something similar.

Sipdown (139)!

Thank you MissB for the sample! I liked the other Harrod’s tea I’ve tried from you, so I definitely was excited for this one. I’m not actually a huge chocolate fan; but I don’t think you can ever really, truly dislike chocolate either.

I had some of the worst cramps I’ve ever had today; so I called in sick. I literally spent 90% of my day on the couch today; I couldn’t move it hurt so bad. Work wants a Sick Note/Doctor’s note – but obviously I didn’t get one. I’m gonna go to the Walk In tomorrow after my tattoo appointment and pick one up, and hopefully that’s good enough for them. I get why employers ask for sick notes occasionally; to keep employees from abusing sick days off. It just, it still seems sorta stupid to me.

On top of your employee missing out on a day’s pay (because face it; the employees with paid days off or who work for salary are not usually the ones asked to get Doctor’s notes), they actually have to pay to get a Doctor’s note. And that can range anywhere from $10-30 here…

One thing that’s been suggested/debated is employers being billed for their employee’s sick notes – and I’m all for that. It still keeps employee’s accountable to almost the same extent, but it doesn’t affect low income earners as directly. And, there are employers who harass employees (I’m not thinking of me right not but another woman I work with) and ask for a sick note every time they don’t show up – even when it’s not frequent! So, that would also deter employers from targeting employees.

Plus, it just takes valuable time out of Doctor’s day! Not to mention, if you’re really too sick to go to work than you’re probably too sick to walk/bus/drive to a clinic, and you’re exposing all sorts of people to your illness too. Ugh.

I don’t know; this is just something I didn’t realize I was passionate about until it sort of hit me that “Damn, I’m really opinionated about this”. Ugh; so not looking forward to sitting in a walk in clinic for, like, two or three hours probably.

Anyway, the tea!

There was something oddly familiar about it; but not anything like other reviewers have mentioned – I wasn’t reminded of barley at all. I thought the smell was so much better than the taste though; it was like a hot, steamy mug of chocolate pudding or rich custard with sweet vanilla like undertones.

That didn’t translate so directly into the taste though; it was more flat with a simpler chocolate flavour. Less rich, if you will. Though having just finished reading Kittenna’s review I can sort of agree that it did taste kind of malty. Not exactly malt – but close enough. Overall; didn’t love this one but certainly didn’t dislike it either!

The taste of this one is familiar but I can’t put my finger on what it reminds me of. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s chocolate. Instead I am picking up a more yeasty or barleyish flavor. Oh, it sorta reminds me of a burnt chocolate babka. It’s not something I’ll be seeking out again but it was fun to try so thank you for the share MissB!!

Thanks for this tea as well, MissB! Can’t say I’m a big fan – the tea really didn’t taste at all like chocolate to me (maybe a bit malty?) It wasn’t bad, just nothing special at all, and I never would have guessed chocolate. Their toffee tea was definitely preferable.

I had high hopes for this tea, being only able to buy it in a three-pack online or in person as a box to itself. I mean c’mon, it’s Harrods! Sadly however, this is only an okay tea. I smell chocolate, but I get little of it in the sip except maybe at the very end. I get more of a burnt chocolate, almost barley-like flavor to it than anything else. Sent a bunch to Sil, so perhaps she’ll figure out a better way to make it right.
