MY REVIEW BEGINS HERE

 

Here are my thoughts on this tea:

So here is the story: I was demonstrating some tea at a local store when I met four tea lovers and we shared some stories on tea, they told me about this tea made from the shell of a cocoa plant and I had to try it, I was determined to pick it up the next time I was at The Traveling Tea Shop and so I did. This tea is fun and will definetly take care of your chocolate craving. The smell and flavor of this tea is straight up cocoa and it’s good. It’s a smooth tea with the flavor of cocoa or dark chocolate, light brown brew with no aftertaste or bitterness.

What I liked:

I liked the scent and flavor of this tea, it’s also very unique and I love that.

What I did not like:

Not a thing, you have to make sure to try this tisane, it’s going to be a special addition to your tea collection.
