Before I left for school in 2018, my friend was very nice and bought me a very pretty wooden box for storing teas. Unfortunately the box had been divided because it was meant for storing tea bags. I have had it on display in my apartment but have not been using it and last night I decided to change that. I took a hammer to the dividers and pulled out all the nails and then, since it wasn’t exactly smooth inside, covered it with duct tape. Not the most elegant job but now I am using it as my sipdown box, storing all the teas with on serving left in it.
This is one of the teas from the box. I have had the single serving for a while but it kept getting lost in my stash…until today. It’s a nice tea, always has been. It’s not spicy but the chili adds another level that stops this from being just another sweet cocoa tea. The chocolate comes through, as does sweetness from the pumpkin and the chili is the perfect foil to those flavors.
