I am a firm believer in mixing chocolate with tea: nibble the chocolate between sips of tea. I do not mind hints of chocolate flavor in tea, but I would rather pair them like this….

On a side note, I can not believe that this thread is still active five years later (almost to the day)! Happy to see that :)

Indeed chocolate- but the kind of chocolate found on the top shelf in the closet that my mom once told me is for cooking, not eating
It's always interesting to read comments on teas that I've tried; they remind me of the different ways in which people drink tea.

I cannot recall the taste of this tea; I only remembered the feeling that it gave me. That probably reflects the low priority that I give to flavour and aroma...

I do recall having some fun brewing it 'hard', treating it as 'yancha' rather than as 'old tea', if that makes sense. .
