From the Samurai TTB.
I’m finally breaking into this beautiful tea box! It feels like I haven’t had tea in at least a week (though it hasn’t been nearly so long) and I couldn’t tell you why. I’ve wanted some but I guess I haven’t had the motivation to make a cup? Anyway, I thought I would start with the one tea in the box that I had on my wishlist.
The Simpson & Vail website mentions pomegranate in this tea’s description, though I didn’t taste any of that here. For me, it was unequivocally a chocolate and raspberry duo. Nothing else. I gratefully couldn’t taste the hibiscus one bit either. The chocolate was a bit thin for me at first, with the raspberry coming through after, but overall it was a well-rounded cup.
As I was drinking it, I couldn’t help but think about 52Teas’ Peanut Butter and Raspberry Jelly which is probably my favorite raspberry tea. That one doesn’t have chocolate, so I probably shouldn’t compare, but I do think I like the 52Teas raspberry better. It’s more jammy (jammier?) which I like. I’m glad to have tried this one and to mark it off my To Try list. Thanks, tea-sipper, for adding it!
Flavors: Chocolate, Raspberry
