Recent Tasting Notes
Chocolate flavored teas are very much hit or miss for me, so when a close friend was super generous and sent me a bunch of teas from her trip to Sri Lanka, I put off trying this one for awhile. But, it’s good! The flavor reminds me of Chocolate Fudge Pop Tarts (that’s a happy thing for me, I adore them, maybe it’s a holdover from childhood – those of you groaning and shaking your heads in dismay can just get over it – we all have our guilty pleasures).
When I first opened the packet, the strong alcohol scent from whatever was used to flavor the tea was very strong (alarming!), but it’s chilled out over time. The flavor doesn’t overwhelm the tea, it sits nicely with it. I’m reaching for this more than I thought I would, kind of like a tea hot chocolate for the winter. And the leaves are pretty big, as was the case with all the teas she sent me from her trip. Makes brewing tons easier, as the steeps can go well over five minutes without adversely affecting the flavor. Not the most complex cup, but still very enjoyable.
