Ahhh, this is more like it.
After a bit of white and yellow tea disappointment, this is some chocolately goodness.
In the tin, the tea smells like a chocolate bar. Really. Sweet, dark chocolate. Not much in the way of rose scent, though there is some.
The chocolate isn’t lost in the steeping. The tea smells strongly of chocolate, and the rose comes awake with the heat to give just a little bit of interest. The tea is mahogany colored and clear.
Maybe I’m just in the mood, but this is really hitting the spot. The chocolate flavor is rich and sweet, not the less sweet, baking chocolate flavor of some chocolate teas. Like someone shaved a candy bar right into the tea.
Now if only my Pokemon Go habit hadn’t been revitalized by people talking about it at work Friday so that I’m feeling compelled to hunt all the time, this tea would make this a lovely morning.
