drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

I was really looking forward to this tea and was hoping it would be a great substitute for my hot chocolate fix since I cannot find one that does not have some form of gluten in it. I had not paid attention to my daughters tube Daily Resolution teas (until more recently as I have noted in previous reviews lol) and had bought 50g of this tea. Much to my delight tonight, in her set of teas was hot chocolate.

The dried leaf is amazingly chocolaty, it made my mouth water with anticipation. It brewed a warming deep brown chocolate liquid very reminiscent of hot chocolate with an earthy chocolate aroma. The flavour was a bitter chocolate, not a sweet chocolate like I was looking for but still delicious… until I got to the last few sips where it was more of a burnt taste (I also noticed a lot of particulate at the bottom of my cup).

My family enjoyed it as well (except for the three year old who said yum but her face said differently lol). I doubt they will drink it again. I will drink the stuff I have bought. Will I buy it again, not sure at this point.

Resolution for today – Treat yo’self!

I am happily married to my husband who definitely is the chatterbox of our 20 year relationship. Together we have three rambunctious children 2 daughters and a son who is stuck in the middle of the girls. We also have a 17 year old fur baby (cat) who likes to the rule house and tell us at midnight it is time to pay attention to him rather than sleep.

I am an elementary school teacher, teaching grade 3/4 with a mixed bag of learning abilities and educational needs. I love my job and share my passion for learning with my students.

I have been a tea drinker since I was allowed to take my first sip, which was very early in life and was mostly the Rose Hip and Earl Grey my grandma would brew by the pot full and serve when company came over. Later in my teen life (once I had more choice of my own) I fell in love with peppermint and green teas. I love hot brews and iced teas. Now I will try just about any kind of tea as long as it doesn’t contain nuts or gluten (damn allergies ruin everything).

I prefer my tea to be natural, meaning without any added sweeteners or cream/milk. I want to be able to experience the tea as it was intended.

My Rating Scale:
0-20: OMG what did I just put into my mouth! I cannot keep this it must be trashed or rehomed.
20-40: Horrible, not something I will drink again, but someone else may still like it
40-60: Ok, nothing overly special, it is kept around because others like it
60-80: Good, either I or someone else in the house liked it
80-95: Great! Will drink this occasionally and will keep it around
95-100: Absolutely amazing, and must keep it in stock at all times!

I invite you to join me as I go through my stash and share my thoughts and opinions on the teas as I and my family drink them (or eat them as my 3 year old says when I use matcha in icing)
