Delicate White tea leaves with Raw Organic Cocoa Nibs, Organic Vanilla Bean and Rose hips make a delightful cup of tea.

This tea will make you Remember the first time you tasted white chocolate. Rich and creamy from the cocoa butter with the forward unmistakable flavor of Vanilla encasing your tongue. White tea’s delicate embrace allows the cocoa and vanilla flavors to shine by giving them a solid platform to perform on that brings them together like the perfect play.

White Chocolate loose leaf white tea is subtle yet Decadent on the palate with a taste that will keep you coming back for more. Loose leaf white tea has a much more delicate floral flavor than the more oxidized version which makes the cocoa flavor stand out. With the addition or organic vanilla to further enrich the cocoa flavor this tea is a wonderful delight.

Taster’s Review:

Such a delight! I love white chocolate, my grandmother prefers white chocolate. I plan to have this tea with her! sTEAp Shoppe is one of those companies that really listens to their customers to perfect their blends, not just to their liking but to the liking of the consumer! I respect the company and the owner Janet is a true sweetheart!

I received this sample from Janet recently as she is doing her second virtual tea tasting on steepster.

She is always reaching out to us, the consumer for our opinions which is excellent! In my opinion nothing about this tea needs tweaked or changed! It is blissful, decedent, and creamy.

The tea has a full mouthfeel and is sweet but not at all cloying! The white chocolate absolutely stands out and is distinguishable as a white chocolate. All her ingredients are naturally flavored and she takes great care and time in learning about each and every ingredient she puts into her blends.

As the tea cools even more of the white chocolate flavor comes out and I imagine it would be wonderful iced! While it is excellent as a dessert tea this would also be a great tea for the younger folk in your life, a tea party, or an afternoon tea.

The rose hips provide just a slight floral note without making it come over as a floral tea.

Now this is not the most complex tea in the world but it is what it says it is – and tastes as one would expect and hope it to taste! Sometimes that is all I am wanting in a tea – a straight forward “it is what it is” flavor without the guesswork!

I needed this today! In one word: YUMMY!!

    What I particularly like here is how you described the tea company owner. Someone who listens to their customers, reaches out to them, and on top of that is just lovely, well – that sounds perfect to me. The tea sounds like a clever successful combination of tea and chocolate, thanks!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
