Tea Tuesday #1: Choconut Oolong

unnamed (2)Argh! I’m stuck at work tonight, but thankfully I have some of my Choconut Oolong from DavidsTea. This tea is dark chocolate oolong with a hint of hazelnut. It actually doesn’t taste too chocolately, as the hazelnut and oolong give it a more earthy taste. The richness and sweetness of the chocolate is subtle. I love giving this tea a nice long 5-6minute steep and adding milk. Though I have a Royal Dansk cookie displayed, this tea is actually really good with a coffee cake/mocha cake.

I originally wanted to do a video series for this, but it’ll have to wait for next Tuesday. So, this is my combination tonight:

Choconut Oolong + Royal Dansk Cookie + The Black Jack Chronicles by Osamu Tezuka.

Did you know a theory is that Oolong used to be called black dragon tea? It’s plant, Camellia sinensis,┬áproduces both black and green tea. Like green tea, oolong tea contains plant polyphenols that can aid in weight loss.

I gotta get back to work but I will be a-teaing next Tuesday.
