I also put some Trader Joe's Cocoa Truffles along with the tea, just for looks of course :)
(These are my favorite truffles! Trader Joe's truffles are absolutely amazing!)
It took 5 minutes to become fully brewed, to get the perfect flavor that this tea was meant for.
I like how the tea bag is fabric and mesh baggish over paper. The papery filter bags are okay, but I prefer the meshy bags over paper. Just ups the quality of the tea.
I also thought it was cute how they did stitches for the tale and up the side of the bag. It added an adorable effect to the tea bag.
I tried to pick a tea cup that would best suit the tea. I really need to get some glass tea cups for my tea reviews. Glass tea cups just seem more professional and you can see the color of the tea better. I used a white tea cup which was perfectly fine :)
As you can see, the tips of the truffles melted a little bit, and got chocolate on the side of the tea cup.
I would have liked a little more potent chocolatey flavor, but it was good the way it was. It is herbal tea, and you don't want an overpowering chocolatey taste.
I give this tea a rating of 4/5 **** 4 stars!
I would buy this tea. It's very good and tasty. It's warming and relaxing. :)
With chocolate teas, I like to add a little bit of creamer to it, like the Coffee Mate Belgian Chocolate coffee creamer, or any kind of chocolate creamer. It boosts up the chocolate taste :)
