I must be in a Valentine’s day mood – when I saw this at World Market I had to pick it up! This is an exclusive tea to World Market, so a little hard to find, but I recommend it!
The tea bags smell of chocolate, and as usual they have a puny amount of tea in them, so I used 2 bags for one large cup. The bags smell nicely of both chocolate and cherry. While steeping the cherry scent comes out sharply. I got worried – it was a bit like Robitussin! I steeped 4 minutes and then tried the tea. It’s mostly cherry when drunk plain. I added milk and sugar, because I do that with all dessert teas. I think the milk was the missing note – adding that, I suddenly tasted cherry cordials – even the cream centers! I love them, but I don’t buy them because I have a problem with eating all of them. So I’m glad to find a tea that answers that craving!
I like that the tea base is a black tea, rather than the rooibos in many chocolate teas. It’s not distinctive, but I can taste it in the backdrop. I absolutely love this tea, and I might have to go back for another tin before it disappears!
