I had originally wanted to get a sample of this tea, but Adagio was all out, so I had to get 3 oz. (you think it would be the other way around!). Oh, well part of me is glad I have a lot extra!
This makes the perfect dessert tea. I usually add a splash of almond or soy milk to bring out the flavors even more. I oftentimes find myself with my head in the bag simply enjoying the sweet aroma – it’s just that good. I’ve always been a fan of chocolate covered strawberries and that’s exactly what this is, but in tea form. The rose petals aren’t noticeable in the flavor, so I’m thinking they’re just there for decoration and it to make it seem more romantic. The balance between the strawberry and the chocolate flavor is just right – neither overpower each other. The subtle bitterness and tannins of the ceylon base definitely give it a dark chocolate feel, with a full bodied taste.
