drank The Earl of Chocolate by 52teas
286 tasting notes

I just finished sipping this tea a little bit ago. Yes, It’s 3am – my sleep schedule is way off right now: I’m up all night and sleeping all day. It’s actually – not “off” for me, because I’m generally a night owl, but it’s gotten a bit more extreme over the last couple of weeks.

Anyway – I love how this tea came together. It’s one that I’ve been wanting to create for a while now, because I love chocolate and orange together. Since bergamot is an exotic orange with a fancy moniker, I thought chocolate would be a good choice for a blending companion of one of my very favorite tea flavors (aka bergamot).

I overleafed this particular pot of tea, because I had just a little bit left in the pouch after I measured it out – and rather than keeping less than enough leaf for another pot, I figured I’d just add more tea to this pot. I found that with the overleafing, the chocolate flavor really intensified. It tasted like dark cocoa powder – like a really, rich chocolate fudge flavor of a brownie batter – no complaints.

Full Disclosure: The individual operating this UserID is the Mad Tea Artist who creates these blends every week. I’m aka LiberTEAS. I took over the 52Teas brand from Frank of Southern Boy Teas. I’m keeping both accounts active at the present time because I still have some tea reviews to post and I didn’t think that I should do that as 52Teas!
