Very unique, I didn’t know what to expect. I drank while eating a little piece of chocolate, which goes together with basically any tea.

The chocolate taste isn’t that strong to me really, but the tea is very calming and smooth. Every sip leaves a feel of the spice in the throat. I imagine this would be nice for a cold. It’s definitely a super stimulating tea – I definitely had an extra pep in my step for awhile after drinking this one :)

There was an entire debate on steepster dedicated to whether this tea was chocolaty enough. As an oolong chai, it works wonders though.

Interesting! I would have preferred a bit more chocolate during the sip and leaving the aftertaste the way it was (with the spice hit in the throat)

Okay, I’m much more of a tea noob than many here – and apparently a little bit of a cheapskate as well.

I can’t help it, I love the old fashioned porceline cups with dainty handles and cherry blossom tree designs. Novelty teapots will make me giggle like a child in a candyshop. I could browse online stores and stare at teaware for hours. I get all into high teas foods and treats.

I dislike mint and most florals, especially Jasmine (yech). Don’t care for Earl Grey (Bergamot flavours) but love English Breakfast. Not into bitter and highly astringent.

I’m a black tea nut. Love almost all forms of the stuff – especially digging Phoenix Pearl from Zen tea right now, divine. Strangely, I’m not a darjeeling fan. I do dig Oolongs and recently found and fell in love with Lapsang. Like golden teas.

Most of the Green tea I’ve tried isn’t for me, although I have a love for Coffee Shop of Horror’s Bog Goblin Green Ginger tea. Funny since I’m not crazy about lemongrass, dislike strong ginger in BLACK tea, and am not a green tea fan – but I love this tea. Go figure.

I’ve cut back a lot on sweet, iced tea because of weight/diet, but when I do drink that stuff, I’ve taken to iced tea cubes and fruit cubes over regular ice cubes. A lot of fun experimenting with and works so much better. No watering down.

On the lookout for my perfect loose leaf Breakfast Tea and my ultimate Chai blend…

Besides tea, I love BOOKS and reading all sorts of things – run the website, The Paperback Stash, and active on Goodreads for several years. Also a huge music lover – books and music are my mains. Have an last.fm account and over 100 created playlists on 8tracks under JCFantasy23. Christian for life. Have a mean cat I love. People wise, blessed with the greatest son in the world, amazing parents and brother, perfect friends. Life is good.
