This house blend is a heavenly blend of our rich Chocolate Tea and our delicate Rose Tea. The combination is truly romantic. Last years blend received rave reviews but this year the blend is even better with the addition of roasted cocoa bean pieces.
This tea is only available for a limited time.

I was especially interested in trying this limited edition blend from Culinary Teas. Chocolate – as many are probably aware – is one of my favorite flavors for tea, and I love the combination of chocolate and rose flavors.
And am I satisfied with this blend? Absolutely! I found this blend to be both surprising and very pleasing.
What surprised me is that the flavors of the chocolate and the rose are pretty equal. Neither ingredient overwhelms the other, both seem pretty happy to share the spotlight with one another. A beautiful marriage!
And what pleases me is that the chocolate is a plentiful flavor in this blend. Normally, when reviewing a chocolate tea, I am stating my wish for more chocolate in the blend, but I won’t be doing that today. This has a very rich, delicious level of chocolate flavor, enough to satisfy this chocoholic!
Which also means that the rose is also a strong flavor, but these two ingredients work so well together. The rose is sweet with a sharpness to it, which cuts through some of the rich, deep flavor of the chocolate without surpassing it. It is a lovely balance of flavors that really pleases the palate.
If you’ve a tea drinking Valentine, this would be a well-received gift. Or, why not give a gift to yourself, and indulge in some chocolate and roses? This tea is the current Featured Tea of the Week at Culinary Teas, and that means extra savings!
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!
