Taster’s Review:

This is one of the new teas that came in the Box of Chocolate Teas from 52Teas, and at the time of this writing, that is the only way this tea is available.

I didn’t actually choose this tea to drink first, it … sort of chose me!  You see, I was happily, but rather haphazardly, removing the tins of tea out of the box, and they were very snugly tucked inside.  In my haste, the lid of this tin opened and a small amount (just a few leaves) scattered out of the tin.  So, I decided that this meant that I was to brew this tea right away!

And, I’m really glad I did!  The flavor is delightful.  The strawberry flavor is dominate, it tastes sweet and just a little tart.  That tartness sort of lingers on the tip of the tongue well after the sip.

The white chocolate flavor is a more subtle flavor, and I find that it reveals itself more after the tea has had a short time to cool.  Not cold or even lukewarm, but not piping hot, either.  Just allow it a few minutes to cool after it’s been poured into the cup, and the white chocolate flavor emerges.  It is creamy and sweet, and compliments the strawberry flavor very well, and even softens the aforementioned tart notes just a little as it starts to come out a little more.

The black tea base is strong, smooth and deliciously suited for these flavors.  It supports the bright flavor of the strawberry and the soft, silky flavor of the white chocolate without overwhelming them.

I quite enjoyed this cup … I’m so glad this tea chose to have me brew it first!

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!
