Continuing my Friday Afternoon black tea journey. . .

Apparently either Friday Afternoon uses a lot of chocolate flavoring in their blends or that is just what I grabbed when I ordered from them. Last night I had an herbal blend from them that had sage, cocoa nibs, and a few other herbs that you would consider to be those sleepytime ones. (will add a note about that one shortly-part of my mystery sampler pack).

This one is a blend of black tea, chocolate flavoring, lemon verbena, and blackberry leaves. The few first sips were really nice- just pops of malt and chocolate. But sadly, I am not wowed. This could totally be my taste buds off too.

I tried the tea in my tea press for some ice tea and that did not work so I’m hoping a cold brew will work since I have an oz of this one or another go later on will bring this tea to life for me.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt

I’m back and hopefully for good! After a bit of a hiatus, I want to get back in the habit of logging my tea journey for various reasons.

I never know how to start these things. I’m a 40ish tea loving gal who enjoys tea parties, horror movies and polka dots/plaid. I have an amazing supportive husband who has allowed our house to be over run by tea in more ways than one. We have four kiddos between us along with our two furbabies that we love as much as they drive us nuts. Our family truly is our world.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos- truly is my arch enemy but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. Recently got into puerh and enjoying the adventure. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!

I’ve also started blending up my own teas at I try to make fun unique blends to brighten someones day with.
