If you have been to one of those lavish chocolate high teas like the Langham have where there’s a chocolate fountain and oodles of goodies to dip into it then you will be delighted with this at home special. There’s no mistaking what this is – white chocolate drizzled over raspberries – simply divine!

This tea is exquisite – the white tea is light and delicate, not at all grassy, just the way a good white tea should taste and the flavouring is sublime truly sublime. I feel as though I’ve got a stack of beautiful fresh ripe raspberries in front of me and with each mouthful I’m dipping them ever so slightly in high quality white chocolate and finishing it all of with a drop of ever so light white tea. This really is the perfect afternoon tea.

When dried the leaves, chocolate pieces and raspberries smell exactly as you’d expect – sweet, raspberrish, white cholatish and leafy. The aroma when made up is of sweet raspberries and a whiff of white chocolate in the air and the taste is well seriously there’s no other way to describe it but each sip is a raspberry drizzled with white chocolate. You know you’re drinking white tea, it’s light and carries the flavours well.

If you love raspberries like I do you are going to fall head over heals for this beautiful cup it’s really something special. Also if you’re wanting to try white tea and aren’t sure where to start then you can do no wrong with this one, it really is complemented perfectly by the flavours.

You’re most welcome, I am REALLY enjoying this tea – it’s oh so nice, I couldn’t stop drinking it last night right before bed time when I really should have been having my normal herbal tea I was like ‘just one more wont hurt’ ;)

After Dinner Mint is already done on my wishlist of tees to try- it does sound lovely, and as a big fan of that exact treat I’m looking forward to trying it.

The Rabbit Hole

Ha ha, I know the feeling. Hope it didn’t keep you awake!

I was a bit worried about that, but it is white tea so I took the risk and in fact I slept really well, better than I normally do – must be all the contentedness from the deliciousness of the tea :)

I just had another cup it’s so good I can’t keep my hands off it!

The Rabbit Hole

Good to hear. I don’t find white tea keeps me awake either which is nice. I really enjoy a cup at bedtime.
