Holy wow. This is a thick, warm, almost spicy malty chocolate tea. Holy wow.

The leaf smells chocolaty. There’s no question about it, it’s a rich dark tea. It’s hearty. It’s full bodied, and it’s rich.

I could drink this allllll day. I kind of wish I’d kept it piping hot, instead of letting it cool. It’s less.. thick? creamy? warming? as it cools, and it gets more of a potato type of taste to it.

A huge thanks to TeaBento to sharing this tea with me so that I could review it. I’ll add more steeps to this as I go through them. I’m so excited to see how this matures and changes with each steep.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt, Sweet Potatoes, Thick

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 g 16 OZ / 473 ML

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
