Arright, Steepsterites. I’m supposed to be doing school stuff right now, so I can’t stay long. However, I’m drinking this tea courtesy of the ever-brilliant JacquelineM and I couldn’t not drop in to say something.

I think it was teaplz that mentioned this connection, but they could totally rename this tea Ferrero Rocher and get away with it. That’s what Florence tastes like to me, and that encompasses the entirety of the flavor profile that I get from this – hazelnut, nutella-y chocolate [did you know that Ferrero Rocher chocolates are made with nutella [or a like-substance]?], and maybe a hint of walnut.

I love chocolate, but I can’t eat it everyday, and as such that is the same way I feel about this tea. However, I cannot deny its deliciousness and the fact that on most days this tea would be lovely. It’s got a decadence about it. And at 4 minutes it doesn’t go bitter on me, which is a pretty huge plus. The flavor profile also reminds me of some of my favorite Illy coffee concoctions at this bakery cafe I like to visit, which is also working in its favor.

So that’s it. This log is pretty disjointed, and doesn’t really do the tea a ton of justice, but I will end it with this:

If you enjoy Ferrero Rocher chocolates, this tea is for you.

Ferrero Rocher is one of my favorite in the past 15 years!

Personally, I find this even more alluring than Ferrero Rocher. It has the nutty flavor and the shadowy chocolate without the INCREDIBLY sweet base, and as a result it seems to be a ‘cleaner’ flavor. Very tasty!

Love Ferrero Rocher chocs & Florence, but does calories & convenience count? I always have a tin of Florence on hand & it’s less guilt inducing on consumption…!

I love Ferrero Rocher, but I don’t know about chocolate + tea. Your review is definitely tempting me to try it, though!
