First cup of the day from the traveling tea box. I dug around a little this morning to find something that I was pretty sure I’d like. In the afternoon I am a little more adventurous in my tea selections, but it’s always a bummer if my first cup in the morning is a big miss. Luckily, this one was a huge winner!

The dry leaves smell like sweet chocolate and raspberries. The tea liquor’s aroma is completely milk chocolate and fresh raspberries – I could smell it as soon as I poured the water over the dry leaves. The flavor is of creamy milk chocolate and a little malty. The sweet raspberry flavor comes in the aftertaste. I’ve had chocolate and raspberry blends before, but they seemed to be more of a dark chocolate flavor. This tea leaves me feeling like I just ate a piece of milk chocolate. It is incredibly creamy and smooth and not artificial tasting at all. A wonderful tea!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs and pieces of red rooibos with cocoa bits.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
