Varieteas Box (October) – 7/30
So, I went up to bed before my partner yesterday and forgot to prepare him a cup of tea to bring up when he was ready. I’m really trying to encourage him to drink more tea instead of beer in the evening and I’m forever buzzing around the kitchen telling him he can pick whichever tea he wants!
Well, last night he did! The look of horror on my face when I realised he’d chosen something from my Varieteas box must have been a picture! Cue lots of grumbling about how I only have one each of those samples and want to drink them myself and review them on Steepster. “But you said I could pick any!!” – “Yes… but not THOSE!” Oh dear! Needless to say, I made the poor boy share his mug of Choco with me.
And thank goodness I did! While my partner wasn’t all that impressed with it, I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure I was going to, because as soon as I lifted the mug to my lips, I was hit by a seriously weird savoury aroma. It was almost like Bovril! Though I love Bovril, especially in winter, so it didn’t put me off… just intrigued me. Taste wise, there was nothing savoury like about this tea. It was pure, rich chocolate. In fact, if my partner had not left the teabag in the mug when he brought it up, I would have been certain he’d made a mug of hot chocolate. There was a nice warmth from the spices and a creaminess from the vanilla. This was yummy!
I’m glad I made him share it with me. I’d definitely drink this again! And I think that was probably the last time my dear other half will ever help himself to a cup of tea from my cupboard, haha!
