Taster’s Review:

As the clock ticks toward the coming of the new year, many of you out there may be reaching for a glass of champagne to celebrate.  Not me.  As I’ve said before I am not much of a drinker of alcohol.  I’ll take a cup of tea over a glass of champagne any day.

And being the chocoholic that I am, this Bon Bon tea from ESP Emporium is probably the kind of tea that I’ll reach for to help me ring in the new year.  Sweet, creamy coconut together with rich, delicious chocolate and a solid black tea base.  So yummy!

This tea brews up very dark, and it tastes strong and rich and smooth – no bitterness to this tea, and only a moderate amount of astringency is noted.  It is a really nice base for the flavors of chocolate and coconut – everything tastes so smooth and deliciously harmonious.

I’m finding that the chocolate and coconut are pretty evenly matched here, just when I think that the chocolate might be the strongest flavor, the coconut comes through and convinces me otherwise.  This tea is very appropriately named, because the combination of the two flavors gives this tea a very truffle-y, bon-bon-ish kind of taste that is absolutely irresistible.  I love it!

This tea makes an awesome latte too!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
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!
