Well I didn’t get lucky after consuming that tea does that qualify as false advertising?! What I did get though was a nice cup of floral chocolatey tea.

Dry you have you typical black tea leaves, contrasting the darkness of the tea leaves are rose petals and dried strawberry pieces. It has a fragrant rose and chocolate aroma that is quite pleasing. Steeping the tea gives off the same chocolatey floral aroma.

The final brew is a dark rose amber color, it has the distinct smell of roses with a subtle hint of chocolate. One sip and the flavor explodes on your tongue first is a sweet chocolate taste, the following after tasting is a slightly tart floral taste that lingers for a while.

I wasn’t sure about this tea at first, not only the name but having rose petals in the tea was something I have not had before. I am glad I went out on a whim with this one because frankly its delicious. It has both the perfect combination of sweet and tart to keep you wanting more, they did a great job on this tea.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
