Review:

The first thing you will notice about this tea is the scent, from open to first sip (and last). This will settle down that chocolate urge you are feeling. It’s a candy bar that you sip with NO SUGAR! That is simply amazing and for it to taste like a chocolate bar is just love at first sip! 

I promise you this tea is more then just a chocolate tea, this tea has meaning and that lavender touch brings it just the right touch. Lavender is so good for you! This tea will seem slightly sweet but there is no sweetener in it. Tea can be that amazing.

Not just a chocolate bar tea, the lavender makes this tea sing, it’s got just the right amount and balance that the lavender just melts right into the chocolate and makes this tea that much more stunning~

Afertaste: none
Biterness: none

Notes:

Cocoa

STICKY RICE PU’ERH

Cost: $6.75 / 1 oz.
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

Interesting Highlights:
Rice, that’s the main highlight!

Ingredients:
Ripe (Shu) Chinese Puerh Tea, “Glutinous Rice Herb” (Nuo Mi Xiang)

Review:
The first brew was so dark I was actually a bit timid to drink it, but when I did. WOW! Don’t let that super dark (it looked like coffee) scare you,

it’s so mellow and smooth and delicate. My son smelled the starchy smell and asked what it was, I had him smell the tea and he stated “wow, that’s amazing” and it was. There is a very very slight vegetal taste, but the Sticky Rice flavor is a win win here.

Afertaste: none
Biterness: none

Notes:
Rice / Starch
Slight Vegetal
