Another sample, courtesy of teabento and their ongoing generosity. So I enjoyed this one quite a bit, actually, and tried it several different times with various preparations to get the full experience. I’m sipping the latest rendition as I type this, humming thoughtfully into my cup and feeling strangely comforted. This is definitely a pajamas and fuzzy socks kind of brew, and makes me ache for summer to officially be over and autumn to arrive. What’s a girl gotta do to bust out the winter wardrobe? So many jackets, so little time.

The chocolate quality pretty much everyone else has mentioned remained constant throughout my trials, a nice, warm flavor that settles on the tongue without being cloying. Short, hot steeps appear to bring out nuttier qualities, whereas cold brewing it over a period of hours results in a cross between stone fruit and blackberry honey. The latter option made it exceptionally toasty as well, but with a malty, smooth undertone that made it easy to drink. I have yet to try it with milk, but I think it might be a pretty good match if brewed up strong enough.

Flavors: Chocolate, Honey, Malt, Stonefruit, Toasty

Figured I’ve been around this website long enough that I should put something here. So, I live in California, but not the sunnier bits, and nowhere near the ocean. Mountains on all sides is fairly calming, though. I’m in that murky area between being an adult and being in denial about being an adult. It’s rough, but I’ll probably make it. I love to read, write, and I have a crippling online shopping addiction that recently has been devoted in large part to tea. Big shock, right?

In terms of tea, I tend to gravitate toward vegetal and creamy oolongs, lightly mineral greens, and honeysuckle whites. I do occasionally enjoy a good flavored tea, however.
