Drinking a few cups of this tonight (thanks to lovelylotus) and am quite content for the moment. I love how this tea is easy to relax into, and just tastes so
warm and cozy. I will however , mention two details which are leaving a bit to be desired with this tea tonight. Firstly, there is an oily sheen to the top of the cup (I’m guessing from the chocolate) I love chocolate in tea, but seriously, not at the expense of feeling like I’m drinking a cup of oily sludge. Ew. (I added cream to my first cup and that helped solve the issue but for people who want to drink this straight, the oily sheen looks terribly unnappetizing. Also, aside from the cinnamon notes, I can’t taste much else. (Maybe I steeped this not long enough??) This is turning out to be kind of a watered down, murky, cinnamon-y drink tonight. Not the worst tea atrocity I’ve encountered, but it is still disappointing. I am feeling cautious about letting this become a permanent tea in my collection. Bummer. I really wanted this to be as good as I had remembered it.

I can’t use chopsticks. My favorite smells are lemongrass and fresh coffee. If I were to die of something fatal, it would probably be caffeine poisoning. Reading, photography, traveling, and cooking are just a few activities I enjoy. I am a native of Krasnoyarsk, but grew up in Alaska.

I enjoy most types of teas, but am partial to flavored black and green varieties specifically.
