31 Tasting Notes
Made this as hot tea before suddenly deciding I wanted it iced instead, so I poured it over some ice. I wasn’t sure how it’d be, but it was surprisingly good iced! It seemed sweeter when iced while it seems nuttier when hot, though it could just be that I happened to get a sweeter scoop.
Flavors: Nutty, Sweet

Oddly enough, when brewed this tea becomes pretty opaque, which I’m pretty sure comes from the white chocolate pieces that dissolve while brewing. It also seems somewhat creamy when brewed (probably the white chocolate again) similar to tea with milk added. This tea is definitely sweet enough to skip additives like cream/milk and sugar though.
I would definitely consider buying more of this tea if I didn’t already have a plethora of loose leaf teas to go through, and mint isn’t common in our household.

For someone who usually hates cranberries, I didn’t actually mind this tea. There are enough other fruity teas that I probably wouldn’t bother buying this one, however. The little stars are a cute touch, though.

I tried it black at first, and it was pretty bitter, but it wasn’t so bad when i added milk and sugar. I dunno, I don’t really drink much earl grey. I’d probably drink it again (with milk and sugar) if I was offered some, but i wouldn’t go out of my way for some more of this tea.
Day 15 of David’s Tea’s 24 Days of Tea 2017
This tea smells amazing, and I’d been looking forward to trying it. Today I decided to settle down in a bath with a bath bomb, a podcast, and a cup of this tea. Ah, bliss.
The actual flavour of this tea somewhat pales in comparison to it’s flavour (though I find that most teas smell much stronger than they taste after brewing, also I had eaten sweets earlier so that might’ve also been a contributor) but the flavour is strong enough still. As with other chocolatey teas I’ve tried the white chocolate chips in the tea left a little bit of oil floating on the surface of the tea, but this doesn’t really seem to be a bother.
If you enjoy Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, you may also enjoy it’s less-tart cousin. I’ll probably be picking up some of this one next time I’m out.
Day 12 of David’s Tea’s 24 Days of Tea 2017
As someone who can’t really stand the smell or taste of coffee, I was pleasantly surprised. Most of the time even the slightest amount of coffee is absolutely disgusting to me (even a mix of 50% coffee 50% milk and sugar I found barely tolerable) but I found this tea drinkable, and even slightly pleasant? It tastes interesting, and I’ll definitely finish off the tiny tin with my roommates, but I doubt I’d go out specifically to buy this tea again.
(Edit: tried this one with and without milk. It’s pretty good either way.)
