Chocolate Dipped Strawberry - TEA VAULT
This blend is in the Tea Vault, and is out of regular inventory rotation. You can still order this blend with minimum quantity 250g and a lead time of 2 weeks. Once in a while, a tea may come out of the vault for a limited time, when smaller amounts can be ordered until the tea is sold out again.
Rich chocolaty aroma with strawberry notes flavoured on a dark earthy Pu-erh tea with cocoa and strawberry pieces. The aroma of strawberry is forward on the nose, while the lingering flavour is of rich chocolate aromas.
Blenders Notes: We used to have a chocolate dipped strawberry tea on a black tea several years back. It smelt great, but the steeping flavour did not follow through. I wanted to create a better version of that tea that could be drunk without always needing the support of milk and sugar. The dark earthly notes of Pu-erh gives this tea the depth and bitterness needed to support the chocolate flavour. Chocolate also is a natural flavour pairing to most berries, so the combination is complimentary.
ingredients: black tea, pu-erh tea, black tea, cocoa bits, cornflowers, strawberries, flavour. (no dairy)
