drank Love Affair by ESP Emporium
7 tasting notes

This is such an amazing tea! Well, amazing for chocolate lovers anyway… It doesn’t only smell like dark chocolate and milk chocolate, but like cherry hearts candy or like the cherry cordials by Queen Anne overflowing during the Christmas season, but it also has a similar taste, just not as strong. You can also taste the rose petals very subtly, but oddly not smell them before brewing (at least I couldn’t), and I’m not sure why I keep tasting Cherry when it’s made with Strawberries… Any ideas on that one?

It’s surprisingly light in taste, since it has such a vivid and beautiful color. It is a vibrant red at first, and then a dark cherry crimson red by the end of it’s steeping – a long, well worth it, 8 to 10 minutes (in my pot on the stove top). This is a tea I could drink ALL DAY!!

If anyone enjoys these flavors and is interested in trading samples I have plenty of this left right now! It was my first time ever ordering loose leaf tea, found a great deal for a starter set with the ESP Emporium through Groupon, and I definitely didn’t know how much 4 oz. was!

I’m a long-time college student with only one class left!! I recently left my college home of Corpus Christi and went to Austin, TX to marry my best friend and boyfriend of 9 1/2 years. So now I’m on a new “Tea Time Tuesday” Adventure to find great local tea shops/houses/lounges, if it has great tea I’m searching for it! I’ve only really fallen in love of loose leaf teas within the past year or so, and my actual “Tea Time Tuesday” started with a friend of mine when we ran into each other at the same campus on Tuesdays for lunch…so “Tea Time Tuesday” was born, mostly starting with each of bringing various tea bags in our lunches for us to try, then slowly after the semester ended, finding local places to attend, thus branching me out into loose leaf tea!!

So that’s me in a very tiny nutshell, if you’d like to help me out on my adventure please feel free to give any advice you have! I’m always open to suggestions, and that’s why I joined Steepster!!
Thanks in advance!
