Recent Tasting Notes
I must figure out how to get this tea to the rest of Canada. No, the rest of the world.
I would drink it every day, several times a day, if I could. It’s that amazingly good. Yes, it needs some form of sweetener to bring out the ooey gooeyness, but otherwise, it’s perfect.
Enough gushing, I’m off to figure out how to spread its deliciousness.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Mushrooms
Seriously, the best tea ever. EVER. I can’t believe I didn’t grab more. So ridiculously, bloody good.
I forgot to label it when I packed it up from Montreal. Still, drank some yesterday and was all, “What IS this?! It’s amazing..” gulp gulp gulp. Then I come on here today to log my tea drinking, and I remember. Yes. Chaga. Mushrooms. Chocolate.
Best tea ever.
Flavors: Chocolate, Sweet
Let’s start this off with: I love chaga tea. I first discovered it in Jasper, Alberta, via a company that sold their version of a powdered chaga Mexican hot chocolate. DIVINE.
So you betcha I grabbed some wildcrafted, locally sourced (Quebec) chaga tea, with “natural chocolate flavoring”. This is that tea.
I’ll admit, the flavoring isn’t awesome. I kind of wish they’d used cacao or something else for the chocolate. Still, with sweetener – with zero exaggeration – this tastes like a super junky chocolate cupcake, with the horribly sweet frosting that you KNOW is bad for you.
Yet, this isn’t. Chaga tea is antiviral, a known cancer fighter, and even helps with colds, flu and weight loss.
Am I complaining? No.
I just wanted this less junky tasting, and more.. earthy tasting. Like the chocolate Mexican awesomeness from up above.
Still, it’s pretty tasty. If you like junky, oversweet cupcakes with way too much frosting…
Oh yea, and you can re-steep this forever (it seems). “Until the water turns clear,” is what most chaga tea websites say.
Yep, I’ll do that. :)
One more thing – steep this at lower temperatures. It both tastes better, and, kills off less of the yummy good-for-you antioxidant benefits.
