Not only is the loose leaf tea beautiful, the smell before it steeps is a lovely blend of florals and cocoa. After it steeps, the rich chocolate notes really emerge but the flavor is not overwhelmingly chocolatey. It feels cozy like drinking a cup of hot chocolate, flavorful but not overly sweet. I was really surprised and it has become my new favorite hot beverage to sip on this fall.
Who knew a chocolate tea would be the solution to the problem of drinking caffeine too late in the day? I can make a cup of this around 3pm and the flavor satisfies the afternoon coffee urge. Sometimes I’ll mix it with milk, but mostly enjoy the raw flavor without any additions. Delicious. Will buy again!
