So I made yet another trip to the mall today…and of course was baited with tea! How can I say no when I did so well on my most recent test and have been trying to cheer myself up? The workers were much more helpful today. My sister and I got to smell almost every one of the new teas. Some that I thought I would have enjoyed in theory didn’t really spark my interest in the store. This one was something that I never thought I’d actually enjoy. But here I am, sipping away happily. I’m trying to make sure I go in that money trap with a plan. :p I like to try and figure out what I’d like before I ever show up or else they’re going to have my wallet!
I was surprised to see this tea because the photos I saw of it online had rose petals. The tea that I was sold did not. This wasn’t a huge deal for me because, quite frankly, I wouldn’t want any rose/flower taste in this blend. What I was happy to smell was coconut. It was a bit more on the chemical smelling side for sure. But man, this hits the spot for some reason. The chocolate is there but I think that I can tell that this is a flavored oil as opposed to chocolate nibs. The ingredient list says there’s chocolate but the flavor profile of chocolate oil is very different than the actual item; which is why I’m a bit suspicious. Either way, the flavors blend well together. The only complaint I think some people would have is that this is something that I would expect more in a black tea. Maybe it’s simply because the flavor completely overwhelms the oolong. If I didn’t know there was oolong in this I frankly wouldn’t have known.
Overall this was a very nice tasting blend that would be able to keep the strongest of my chocolate/sweet treat temptations at bay. Well played Teavana, well played…
