drank Nuts for Chocolate by Tickled Tea
2900 tasting notes

I steeped this quite strong (2.5 tsp for 500mL hot water, 3 minutes). but it still tasted watered down. It was thinner than I expected, and tasted more of spices than chocolate and cocoa. Even with vanilla soy milk it isn’t as rich as I was hoping. It isn’t a bad cup, but not as good as it could have been. Cinnamon, almond, a bit of black tea. This would have made a killer chocolate milk latte.

Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Nuts, Spices

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

Thank goodness it tastes watered down for you too. I thought I messed up with the amount of leaf and that’s why mine tasted weak so it’s nice to see others had the same issue

Also I’ve never thought to make a latte with chocolate milk and now I need some chocolate milk cuz this must be a thing

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
