Tea Review: Spice It Up (Pippa's Real Tea)

Spice It Up
Pippa's Real Tea & Cafe Tenby
Type: Flavored Puerh
Origin: Not Provided
Product Description:
This tea will wake you up in more ways than one!  Like a Mexican hot chocolate with a kick of chili at the finish.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf blend includes puerh, cinnamon, honeybush, cacao nibs, safflower, chili flakes, and chocolate.

The liquor is dark reddish-brown with aroma notes of cocoa, sweet cinnamon, spicy chili, and buttery caramel.  The taste is smooth with notes of cocoa, cinnamon, chili, and caramel with a chili and caramel finish.

This tea blend was definitely a treat.  The chocolate notes were most pronounced in the first infusion, reminiscent of Mexican hot chocolate.  Following that, buttery caramel notes took over and I was reminded of the delicious chocolate covered chili caramels I used to get from a local chocolatier.  While the best flavor was in the first two infusions, the third was smooth and quite enjoyable.

This tea was purchased by me.
