I had such a good experience with 52teas Chocolate Mint black tea the previous day that I decided to try to try to work drinking up one of the other teas I have left from the chocolate sampler pack. I settled on the Smokey Chocolate black tea but remembered that the last time I had it it was more smoke than chocolate so decided to amp it up with some Milk & Cookies for extra chocolate flavor. (I’ve since remembered that I have a Double Chocolate black tea sample that I could do this with as well.) I ended up using nearly my normal amount of Milk & Cookies with a 1/4 teaspoon of Smokey Chocolate for just a bit of smoke with my chocolate and it worked out just how I wanted it to taste. So v good. Second steep was as well.

2nd steep: 20+ mins.

205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 45 sec

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
