When I saw chocolate chip tea I knew I had to try it. First things first, the scent, it took me a moment to relate the scent and then it hit me, Chocolate Milk. When I figured out the scent I started to wonder how a black tea could mix with a chocolate. Once the tea was steeped and I got to take my first sip, I needed a second sip just to make sure. It really is a strong sensation of chocolate then the deep taste of a black tea. The mixture to me is something that was still lacking and it was a dark strong flavor, but once stepped it lost it’s chocolate appeal. I added some milk to hopefully bring out the more chocolate flavor, that did not work. I’d not add milk to this mix.
Till next Tea….
