This tea was sent to me by SuperStarling! She must really want me to try it because she sent a sample to me in both of our swaps so far ;)

I’m glad you did though! Becaaauuuseee I really like it! Yay!

My boy is sick. Yesterday was his birthday and he had a 103F fever with vomiting. I’m sitting on the couch with him this morning. I wanted something warm and fuzzy and comforting. So I reached for Chewie. Save us, Chewie! You’re our only hope!

And saving me he is. Nutty and chocolate is like one of my favorite combinations on this earth so this is really hitting the spot. Plus, my wife (for some unknown and perplexing reason) has a strong distaste for hazelnut. I happen to love it. I try to get that flavor into my mouth whenever I can because it ain’t happening with a shared dish/drink. And this tastes like a toasted hazelnut chocolate tea. Yeeessssss…..

If I seem extra super jacked up it’s because I’m trying to find some sunshine wherever I can right now and this is one of those places/teas.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut, Nutty

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Michigander, Husband, father of three, lover of tea, books, nature, gardening, and passion. Stay at home dad currently. Previously a preschool teacher.

I have now completed some tea swaps and I am so totally up for swapping! What a cool way to connect with fellow tea lovers and try some new teas. My tea cupboard on here is woefully out of date though.

Black tea has been my go to tea for some time. Oolongs are good too but mainly roasty oolongs. I’m finding that there are some green and white teas (mostly Moonlight Whites) that impress me lately which they never used to do. I am getting into and developing a taste for Pu-erh. I have tried raw and my Ulcerative Colitis just can’t handle the roughness of it. So I stick to ripe Puerh. I am recently drinking more herbal tea or Rooibos especially STRONG ginger blends. I’m not too picky.

Some of my favorite places from which to purchase tea are Whispering Pines Tea Co, Verdant, A Quarter to Tea, Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co, Bitterleaf Tea, and Yunnan Sourcing.

Rating system:
90-100: Some of the best I’ve ever had. I’d be a fool not to keep it stocked as often as possible
80-89: A damn good tea. Not to be missed
70-79: A good tea but lacks the wow factor. More than likely a simple tea that could be an every day option
60-69: Eh. This is okay. Not swill by any means but fairly underwhelming.
50-59: Not really doing it for me. I’ll finish it but please don’t bring me any more.
Below 50: Life is too short to waste on things such as this
