Leaf Type: Black

You ease into the first sip. Real caramel. You slide into the second. Real cocoa. With the addition of milk and sugar, you instinctively reach for a spoon.
A sundae for breakfast? Sure, why not? This tea lets you enjoy your sundae any time of the day … guilt free!
The aroma of the tea is not as pronounced as I thought it would be; but the rich, delicious flavor of the tea more than makes up for the weak scent. The first thing I taste is the tea – and since I am drinking tea and not hot chocolate or caramel, that is just the way it should be.
The black tea base is a pleasant tasting tea, brisk and smooth without being too assertive. It melds seamlessly with the cocoa notes. The caramel is sweet and the note of vanilla in the tea gives the burnt-sugar caramel an irresistible creaminess.
With this combination of flavors – the creamy vanilla, the rich chocolate, the sweet caramel – this really tastes like a sundae. Not one of those fast-food sundaes, but one of those amazing sundaes from an ice cream shop. All that’s missing is the cherry on top! This is a perfect dessert for tea lovers.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
