Craving that candy bar…why not try a calorie free alternative? Our Chocolate Caramel Turtle tea is it! A sinfully delicious combination for your brewing pleasure.
This one had me at chocolate. But promises of caramel too? My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I could smell the chocolate as soon as I opened the pouch, which only added to the drool factor.
The brewed tea has an interesting fragrance as well, not as strong a chocolate scent as with the dry leaf, but more like a combination of chocolate, nuts, earthy black tea, and sweet caramel. The nutty aroma is the strongest of the bunch.
Mmmm! This tastes so good. Nutty and chocolate-y, but not so much that it overwhelms the caramel and black tea. The black tea base is fairly neutral and mild here, but it is not so discreet that it is completely lost. Each flavor is represented in the sip, although some flavors are stronger than others.
A very enjoyable cup – this chocoholic approves!
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!
