Another good rainy day tea. :)
I’ve drunk through a pouch or two of Zhen Qu, so I’m pretty familiar with it (even though I always have to double check the spelling…) and with that in mind, I just wanted to say that the flavoring in this tea is incredible. It tastes like a natural extension to the tea. The chocolate brings out the natural cocoa-y taste of Zhen Qu, the marshmallow naturally sweetens the tea without being in your face about it, and the orange comes right at the swallow, a slight citrusy touch that adds a ton of character.
The flavors tone down the peppery nature of the Zhen Qu, but doesn’t hide its identity at all. Zhen Qu is quite a distinctive tea, and I would’ve recognized that as the base at once even if I hadn’t already known.
All in all, this is a super yummy tea that satisfies a sweet tooth while still being a cup of tea. A perfect example of a flavored tea done right. :)
