First off Pretty Pretty name.OH and WHITE CHOCOLATE ARE YOU KIDDING ME….drool drool drool
Star anise has been a real star in a few DAVIDsTEA concoctions lately maybe a bit of a bromance going on.
Dry it smells chocolatey and deeply sensual with notes of cocoa and star anise
Ooohh I am dying to tie you up and spank you my dear…yes I said it my tea depravity knows no bounds.
As for taste it is silky sweet and much more delicate and then I was anticipating a very light spiciness lingers on the tongue and there is definitely a nudge of licorice that stays on my taste buds long after the tea is gone.I steeped for 7 minutes and put in the recommended amount and it did not get bitter so that’s a first with DAVIDsTEA black teas..an improvement.
This tea is perfect for cold wet and dark January days and late nights in summer before a night out or after.it is gentle enough for the licorice shy and noticeable enough for licorice tea lovers like myself.I’m not in love but it has my attention and we may be sending shy glances to each other as 2013 moves on.
