Bird and Blend Advent Calendar Day 3:

I find chocolate teas to be hit or miss for me, and too frequently a miss. But not this one. When I read the ingredients (chocolate, fenugreek, and liquorice????) I was doubtful. But it works beautifully here. The black tea base is mild and doesn’t overwhelm the other flavors. The fenugreek and liquorice are present but don’t over shadow the chocolate. This tea is a definite hit.

I have a Happy Planner and for each day in December I am noting which tea I had from the advent calendar and whether I would ever want to order a bit more of it. This one I may want to re-order some time. I really enjoyed it.

Flavors: Chocolate, Licorice

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
