It’s been a while since I have wanted anything flavoured and this should be a nice sample to drink in order to get me back into them.

In raw form this smells like dark chocolate with super sweet fruit with a hint of rich licorice. Stronger than I was expecting but pleasant, so far I can’t imagine what it would taste like…dark and sweet I suppose. Also has a very dry sort of scent, almost dusty.

Once steeped this tea is golden brown with a sweet strawberry and cocoa aroma. It did smell more chocolatey in raw form and since steeping it’s brought the strawberry forward and lost the licorice. Very different than I imagined.

The first few sips reveal a light and sweet tea with notes of dark chocolate, berry fruit with a velvety finish. It’s very sweet and somewhat artificial tasting, more like strawberry sweets than fresh strawberry. It does also have a hint of sour which is possibly the raspberry but it only lasts a second or two. Also the chocolate is dry and nutty cocoa like.

After one cup I can now taste the licorice in the background of the cocoa making it dark and somewhat smoky.

Overall it’s a nice tea but a Love Elixir? Not for me anyway. It got me thinking though, what would my Love Elixir taste like? I think it would have watermelon, strawberry, banana, chocolate and a hint of cinnamon. :)

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
