First tea I ever got from Genuine Tea, at the Tea Festival 2 years ago. sadly this one is long gone now, it seems, but it was a good one! I know they claimed it had a cocoa note, but — and maybe this is just my unrefined tea palette — I never picked up in that. It was more of a light honey flavour with faintly spicy-earthy undertone. This one tops my list of teas I wish could come back, though. I quite enjoyed it.

From the Puerh Plus teabox. This tea has long, twisted dark leaves and gives off a very attractive fragrance even when dry. I’ve tried about two taiwan black teas before (one that I liked and one that I didn’t) so I was happy to find that this one has the wonderful sweet potato notes that make me want to dump brown sugar and butter in it, lol (I will resist! Because that would be a mess).

I had this one earlier today as well. Looking at placing a possible order with Genuine tea since they are CAD and offer free shipping with any purchase. I also wasn’t able to pick anything up from them at the tea festival. This one is really nice. It really does have sweet cocoa notes. It’s not the rich malty cocoa that i love, rather this is more like a taiwan tea, with those sweet honey notes, flavoured with cacao. Not a tea i need to purchase, but one i rather enjoyed.
