M is for… Mocha!
Thank you VariaTEA for sharing this – and all the other Kenneth Ave teas – with me! I think we were actually pretty aligned with this one in that it’s a bit too coffee like. I typically REALLY enjoy the earthy robustness of shou pu’erh but I think it really leaned into those dark roast coffee notes in a way that made me feel less like I was having a tea and more like I was having coffee. I actually appreciate the accuracy of the flavour a lot, but it’s not for me. Coffee flavours like this are always just so weird for me because I like REALLY dark roasted/earthy flavours a lot – Hojicha, Guinness, Shou Pu’erh, Buckwheat…
But not coffee.
It’s not a “tea is the greatest, coffee sucks” thing either. I’ve just never really liked the taste of coffee, even long before I got into tea.
