Sipdown! (1 | 404)
What, a non-advent note? What is the world coming to?! :P
I often have to wait a bit to start drinking my advent teas, just because I take photos of all of them for my Instagram stories, and often the lighting just isn’t good in the morning (thanks, winter!). So this has been my first tea of the day on those days, steeped Western style with one chonk for a 16-ounce mug.
I wouldn’t say it’s anything to write home about, but it’s a very yummy, malty, and smooth Chinese black tea with just enough heft to be good for the morning. There’s sweetness, woodiness, a bit of brown sugar and dried stonefruit as well.
Very nice as a daily drinker, and if I remember correctly it was very reasonably priced. It looks like this was only made in 2016 though, and hasn’t been produced since. It’s funny how it’s called “choco” and is in the shape of a chocolate bar, but the tea doesn’t taste chocolaty to me at all.
