Taster’s Review:

Chocolate Orange Bliss … sounds incredible, doesn’t it?  Immediately images of those chocolate oranges that are available around the holidays come to mind.  Yummy!

And this tea is indeed yummy.  The black tea is brisk but not overly aggressive.  It doesn’t attempt to overpower the flavors of orange and chocolate (and that’s a good thing because when you’re a chocoholic like me, nothing should stand in the way of the chocolate!)  The black tea base is very smooth and mild … and even a little comforting.  There is no bitterness to this tea.  It is lightly astringent which accents the tangy flavor of the orange quite nicely.

The chocolate and orange are powerfully represented.  The orange is vibrant and sweet.  The chocolate is rich and creamy.  The overall cup is delicious, very dessert-like.  I like that this tea is strong enough to be enjoyed at breakfast (dessert for breakfast?  Count me in!), and mellow enough to be enjoyed later in the day, and delicious enough for a mid-day respite when you just need to get away for a few moments of peace and enjoyment.  This tea fits the bill!

And, if that wasn’t enough to entice you, how about this?  Daily Gourmet is currently offering a 50% savings on five of Ovation Teas’ finest offerings, including this tea!  This offer is only for a limited time, so now is a great time to try this amazing tea – as well as some other remarkable teas with these tantalizing savings!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
