This tea deserves a better note than I’m going to write for it, because it’s awesome and chocolate chili ‘things’ are the best kind of things. Unfortunately I drank up the last of it during what was otherwise a particularly terrible day, so details are getting fuzzy. Good pot of spicy sweet tea, bad everything else.

For me the slight spice is perfect. Chocolate, never being my favourite ingredient in tea is also pretty good. I do have to wrap my head around that this isn’t the creamy, milk infused chocolate, but good old dark chocolate of little milk, a pinch of sugar or honey, and a lot of nip. So, essentially everything you’d want in a dark chocolate chili truffle.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Honey, Pepper

I’m sorry it was a bad day otherwise. Bad days usually end though, and I’m glad you have good tea.

OMGsrsly

Sil I must know more!!!

OMGsrsly

(If I have space, with ALL THE TEA, I could bring some back for CrowKettle!)

Sil

OMGsrsly

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My favourites are teas like Milk Oolong, Silver Needle,and Japanese Sencha/Gyokuro, or fruity and floral flavoured ones. However, I generally enjoy ALL the teas, including a good old cup of Earl Grey or Breakfast blend.

FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS/NOTES:

DESSERT FLAVOURS
Vanilla, Maple, Caramel, Butterscotch, Cream, Toffee, Nougat, Marzipan, Butter

FRUIT & BERRIES
Citrus Fruits, Passionfruit, Banana, Pineapple, Melons, Blackberry, Raspberry, Currants, Elderberry, Persimmon, Rhubarb..

SPICES
Ginger, Turmeric, Clove-forward chai, Cardamom

AROMATIC & HERBACEOUS NOTES
Sandalwood, Frankincense, Juniper, Eucalyptus, Mints

FLORALS

VEGGIE/GRAIN NOTES

Less Preferred Flavours/Ingredients:
Stevia, Apple, Cocoa Nib, Almond, Licorice, Cinnamon-forward blends, Chinese Sencha

Subjective Rating System:
I don’t give a lot of low ratings out, since a) I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me, and b) I don’t have a lot of strong dislikes.

90-100: Favourites. The Desert Island Teas.
80-89: Loved teas. Possibly staple-worthy.
70-79: Good teas, but I’m less likely to repurchase. Minor quibbles.
60-69: Ok teas. Likely a few preference and/or quality issues.
50-59: Cup of meh. Will do in a pinch.
11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea.
1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, an unholy abomination. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
