Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: Tealish
Who can argue the awesomeness of a holiday where you get to have fun spinning dreidels, winning chocolate coins, and eating jelly doughnuts?! With black tea, creamy chocolate, and luscious strawberries this tea is the perfect partner for those rich Hannukah treats we all love!
NOTE: I wrote this review in Early May, but, I am scheduling it to publish just before the first day of Hanukkah, since it is a holiday/seasonal tea and probably only available during the holiday season.
This tea is so delicious!
The aroma of the dry leaf is so mouthwatering – it smells like jelly doughnuts and chocolate. YUM! Once brewed, the fragrance becomes more subdued, but I can still smell the chocolate and donuts!
The flavor is unbelievably – very much like chocolate and strawberry jelly filled donuts! I get the rich, creamy flavor of chocolate (although, yes, I would like a little more chocolate), the sweet, juicy flavor of strawberry, and even a delicious, baked cake flavor.
And let’s not forget the tea, because I taste that too! It provides a strong background of flavor – robust, malty black tea that mingles well with these tasty dessert flavors.
I’d recommend this tea to everyone – whether they celebrate Hanukkah or not! It is so YUMMY!
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!
