Oh this is just what The Doctor ordered. That’s right, The Doctor. I’ve got the Russel T. Davies era on in the background while I work, and I needed something sweet and understated, so no Mexican Wedding Cookie for me today.
The base is smooth, with no bitterness or astringency. Which is great, because the teas I’ve been drinking lately have all been coming out REALLY bitter, so it’s nice to know that I am still physically capable of making a cup of tea. This is the first tea that I’ve come across with a natural cocoa flavor, and I have to say that I am loving it. It’s warm and a little cinnamony in a way that reminds me of Mexican chocolate. There’s just a touch of maltiness that reminds me of a milkshake, but make no mistake, this tea is nothing like a milkshake.
Then there’s the vanilla. It’s so simple, and you can tell that it’s really nice vanilla.
It’s out of stock now, but I hope it comes back. This is something I want to keep in my cabinet.
Edit: On a third brew (my dad took the second) the vanilla is pretty much gone, but it’s all chocolate sweet goodness from here on out. Would it be sacrilege to make this into an ice cream?
