Since high school, I have this running joke with a friend that she is my wife (a joke inspired by one of our teachers telling us that in some cultures, a high five means we are married). And since she is my wife, I decided to surprise her with a Valentine’s Day package filled with chocolate and Valentine’s Day themed teas. It is corny, yes, but I am sure it will put a smile on her face. Plus, it has the added benefit of helping me control my cupboard.

This was one of the teas I am sending her way. It followed the theme so I decided to pack some up . Once I had the bag out I figured that I should give it a try to see what exactly I was sending her. Alas, this is not the sweet, chocolatey cup I was hoping for but rather just a cup of sweet rooibos. Luckily I don’t mind the flavor of Della Terra’s rooibos so the cup is pleasant enough but this definitely was a disappointment. I think I would much rather drink Red Velvet Delight than this as they are quite similar but that has more flavor.

This is the last of my untried Della Terra samples, I do believe. I think the only unopened Della I have now is a full bag of Anti V-Day treat, which I’ll probably dig out next. I really ought to make some progress on my older 52 Teas, though. They should really be next by rights! I used 1.5 tsp of leaf for this cup (my work mug is quite big…) and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. The resulting liquor is a medium golden-brown, and a little oily from the melted chocolate chips. It smells wonderfully of caramel.

To taste, it’s pretty good in the way of most Della Terra “cake” blends. They’re certainly fabulous dessert teas, without a doubt! This one reminds me quite a lot of Red Velvet Delight, which was chocolatier, but which shares the same cake batter notes and broad overall flavour.

This blend tastes mostly of caramel and toffee, with a hint of chocolate. There are both white and milk chocolate chips in this blend, which add a deliciously creamy overtone. It would make a pretty good sauce for sticky toffee pudding, if only it were thicker…The distinctive “cake” flavour shared by many Della Terra teas is also kicking around in the background, although it’s not as prominent here as it sometimes can be. This one is all about the caramel! Sweet, smooth, delicious caramel, with a light coating of milk chocolate. It’s pretty amazing to drink, and the rooibos barely makes itself known. Win-win! I’ll be a little sad when this one’s gone.
