208F for 2min at 12 oz
While this tea was steeping, all I could smell was hot chocolate and dark chocolate. The taste as less intense than the smell. It still tasted like hot chocolate, but was less sugary than that drink.
Very comforting and satisfying tea. Great chocolate flavor. I got two steeps out of the leaves. One of the better chocolate teas out there. Raising the rating.
Though I had White2Tea’s Sugar Rush last night that was also chocolaty, but much more sugary. I wonder what would happen if I mixed these two together?

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Dark Chocolate

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is completely out of date. I have a spreadsheet that has 250 teas, but is also out of date. And tea all over the living room that hasn’t been logged anywhere!

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
