Drew and I smelled four tins and tried some iced tea, and we decided to take a little bit of three kinds that we had smelled. One of these was called Love Tea #7. It's a black tea with rose, strawberry, and chocolate. The tea doesn't just taste like that from some kind of flavour additives either - we could see the mini chocolate chips in the canister of tea, mixed in with the dried strawberries and rose petals.
Love Tea #7 - YUM
We made a pot of it this morning instead of our usual espresso, and it's wonderful. I am often a bit skeptical of flavoured teas because many times the flavours they are supposed to have are too weak to really taste, and I find that it ends up making the tea unpleasant. Some brands are exceptions to this rule, like Stash teas, for example. But in general, fruity or otherwise flavoured teas have a tendency to be disappointing to me.
Love Tea #7 is completely not like that. The chocolate melted in the hot water, and the strawberry and rose flavoured the steeping tea really nicely to produce a deep flavour in the tea. Nothing weak or watery about this! It tastes like something you could chew, like a delicious cake without the sweetness.
