Two bucks for something to wake me up on my way to classes? I think yes.

I needed a bag that can be easily oversteep, and last time I had this, it was spicy, sweet and chocolaty. I know that the company is under new management, and honestly, the older version was better because you could see the chocolate powder diffuse into the cup. The older version also had a stronger presence of rose. This time, it doesn’t have the same type of chocolate flavoring and not quite as good, though it’s still sweet and spicy on its own.

This is by no means the best chocolate tea I’ve had (it’s going to be hard to beat LP’s Dark Chocolate Oolong), but something cheap and forgivable in steeping that I need while traveling.

Flavors: Cardamom, Chocolate, Peppermint, Spices, Sweet

I totally hear you about having cheaper teas in your collection for when you are busy. For me, It’s cheaper (although, still loose leaf) green teas I can steep in my timolino while getting ready for work in the morning and then drink “mindlessly” while I’m at work without feeling bad about not savouring the flavour.

Me:

I am an MSU graduate, and current alternative ed. high school social studies and history teacher. I formerly minored in anthropology, and I love Egyptian and classical history. I love to read, write, draw, paint, sculpt, fence(with a sword), practice calisthenics on rings, lift weights, workout, relax, and drink a cuppa tea…or twenty.

I’ve been drinking green and black teas ever since I was little living in Hawaii. Eastern Asian influence was prominent with my friends and where I grew up, so I’ve been exposed to some tea culture at a young age. I’ve come a long way since I began on steepster and now drink most teas gong fu, especially oolong. Any tea that is naturally creamy, fruity, or sweet without a lot of added flavoring ranks as a must have for me. I also love black teas and dark oolongs with the elusive “cocoa” note. My favorites are lighter Earl Greys, some white teas like What-Cha’s Kenyan offerings, most Hong-Cha’s, darker Darjeelings, almost anything from Nepal, Green Shan Lin Xi’s, and Greener Dong Dings. I’m in the process of trying Alishan’s. I also tend to really enjoy Yunnan Black or Red teas and white teas. I’m pickier with other teas like chamomile, green teas, and Masalas among several.

I used to give ratings, but now I only rate teas that have a strong impression on me. If I really like it, I’ll write it down.

I’ll enjoy a tea almost no matter what, even if the purpose is more medicinal, for it is my truest vice and addiction.
