I remember this being one of the first teas I tried and definitely had to purchase. The smell is strong, sweet, and maybe even perfect if you ask me. Once steeped though, the taste is rather weak. To make it become one of my favourites, I had to steep it for quite a long time – sometimes I just leave the tea bag in there. For days I want a sweeter treat, I’d add a bit of sugar and milk to taste. If only the taste wasn’t a heavily watered down version of the smell, I would have loved this tea even more than I already do.
Red Velvet Cake
What’s not to love about a red velvet cake? It’s chocolaty, it’s rich, and it’s bright red. We’re the first to admit it’s a pretty flashy dessert. If other cakes are birds of a feather, the red velvet is the peacock – which is exactly why we love it so much. And this sweet, lightly creamy black tea blend perfectly captures our favourite dessert. With semi-sweet and white chocolate chips, beetroot powder and little red sprinkles, it’s rich, delicious and a whole lot of fun.
Ingredients: Black tea, semi-sweet chocolate bits, white chocolate bits, beetroot powder, sprinkles.
