Inkling Advent Day 4. The chocolate flavoring is a bit alcohol-heavy, but I added extra milk, which balanced it out. It tastes best cold. Not my favorite or least favorite chocolate blend, but somewhere in the middle. I wish I tasted some caramel!

I LOVE caramel-flavored teas and am so-so about most chocolate blends, but I ordered pretty much everything that sounded somewhat interesting in T2’s big clearance sale, so here we are. I’m somewhat disappointed that I don’t get much caramel flavor from this blend. However, the brownie flavor is spot-on: rich and fudgy! I especially enjoy it with milk and would like to try it as a latte.

I’m surprised by how much I really like this blend. It’s very chocolaty, not watered down at all. I’m guessing this is due to the cacao shells? I don’t taste the caramel, but the brownie is coming through loud and clear. Delicious!
Thanks to PamelaOry for including it in the tea box!
TTB Review #46: I found this one a bit obnoxious. Yes, it’s sweet and has all of those notes of caramel and chocolate, but in a way that felt haphazard. It reminded me of being a kid and smelling my bag of candy right after trick-or-treating – just an overwhelming amount of disjointed sweetness. I’m sure lots of people would like it but I wasn’t a big fan.
Flavors: Candy, Caramel, Chocolate, Sugar
This was a really nice, unexpected treat! You definitely get the brownie and the gooey, buttery caramel. It also wasn’t too sweet. Other than a select few, I wasn’t too pleased with T2 in the past but I think it was just their tea bags I didn’t like. All the looseleaf ones I have had have been delightful.

Iced Latte Sipdown (203)
The burnout is so real. I really needed to do work this weekend and I just didn’t have it in me to do it. Then I woke up this morning panicked about work. At some point I wanted something happy and a giant iced latte sounded amazing. Except, I didn’t know what tea to use. I then spent forever deciding and when I finally narrowed it down to this blend, I realized I only had enough for a 12 oz latte (as opposed to the 24 oz one I planned). At least its a sipdown so I can feel like I accomplished something today.
This was an okay latte. More brownie than caramel. And not a particularly sweet brownie at that. Definitely fudgey though. A bit thin, which felt odd when paired with the fudgey flavour. Oh well.
I was a little overwhelmed going into the T2 store for the first time, there was a lot of teas in a lot of boxes on all the walls, it looks great but just something to get used to.
I picked out this tea as well as a few other last month and I’ve tried it a couple of times. You can taste the black tea rather strongly, and has a nice chocolate, sugary undertone that I have become fond of.
My problem is that I cannot seem to always get the little caramel/toffee cubes when I take some out. I gently shake the tin, but I just think it could use more of them.
It is more of a flavored black tea than what I would consider a dessert tea. It is sweet but not a crazy amount and it still has that strong black tea flavor.
I should also note that the small 100g bags at T2 are not resealable so I ended up buying a tin for the tea, but I suppose you can always keep it in a plastic bag, and keep the plastic bag in the paper box that has the label on it.
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate
Meh. I’ve tried this one a few times and I’m just not sold. It’s a little too earthy to me and just doesn’t taste quite right. The chocolate has a little bit of a dirt feel to it, and I get an overly burnt taste from the caramel. I generally like T2, but this one is a pass for me.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Earth
This one turned out to be more pleasant than I thought it might be, but then I’m not sure why I didn’t think I’d like it to begin with. A minor trepidation about chocolate teas, maybe? As it happens, it’s a good one! There’s lots of caramel – it actually reminded me very clearly of a Cadbury’s Caramel bar, which can only be a good thing. The caramel tasted smooth and glossy in the same sort of way; sweet, but not overpoweringly so. The chocolate is nice also; a tad artificial, maybe, but at least not watery or weak. While the overall impression is of milk chocolate, there’s a background hint of cocoa that’s really pleasant, and only adds to the overall effect.
I drank today’s cup black, but I think this might make a decent latte. If not, then I like it fine anyway – a good thing, given that I have 100g…
Overall, a really decent cup. One of the better chocolate teas I’ve tried recently.
