Wow, It’s been a while since I’ve been blown away by a tea, and a bagged tea, at that.
On opening the package I immediately got a strong smell of chocolate liqueur (although there is no actual liqueur in it). I do believe i could get happily intoxicated just by smelling this tea.
I made it with a little touch of milk, and it does really taste just like a truffle, a caramel liqueur filled chocolate truffle, intensely chocolaty sweet and very creamy. The smell mellows a bit after brewing, but is still very strong and enticing.
The blending of Assam with Rooibos seemed a little odd to me at the beginning, but the overall taste is outstanding.
There are a lot of really good teas, but every so often I drink a tea, and think “WOW, that is GOOD tea”. That hasn’t happened to me since I first drank 52teas Sheri’s Blend.
