Yesterday I came home to a fantastic swap package from Rabs full of exciting teas to try! It was hard to decide which one to dig into first, but since it was evening and my sweet tooth is always ready for a dessert tea, I picked this one to drink as we watched a film.
Deeeee-licious! This one took me on another jaunt down memory lane, because it tastes so similar to the Phoenix Dessert Blend at Alice’s Tea Cup in NYC! I know, I know, I have a crazy elephant memory (i.e. I never forget ANYTHING), but we went there in July of 2007 for my birthday, and had this tea with the most amazing pumpkin scones in the WORLD after a day of tromping around the Met. We loved the tea so much that we brought a few ounces home with us to enjoy in my other gift that year from my husband, my beloved shiny red Chantal teapot which I have used every day for the past 3 years!!!
So, yes, this tea is great. Sweet. True luscious caramel. Good tea. I don’t really taste the chocolate, but rather taste richness. I don’t get ice cream sundae, I get Alice’s Tea cup, cool on a hot summer day, fairy wings and Cheshire cats, Art, Scones, Happiness!!!
