Really disappointing. I had high hopes for this tea since I love their plain rose tea. I figured chocolate, roses, what’s not to like?
I saw whole rosebuds in the bag, but when I smelled it I only got a muddled scent that wasn’t very rosey at all. I didn’t taste any chocolate, nor roses either. I barely tasted tea it was so weak. When cooled, I get the barest hint of rose, but not much else. To tell the truth, I’m beginning to wonder if I got a leftover bag from last year that had gone stale.
The first cup I steeped for five minutes, and poured it down the drain because it was so bland. The second was drinkable only because I steeped it for two minutes more and threw in some rose tea.
If all their “special” Valentine teas are this lackluster, I think I’ll skip out on them next year.
