Read My Lips | 24 Days of Tea: Day 13

Read My Lips - 24 Days of Tea 13Okay, this is probably the world’s best chocolate tea. Honestly. Better than dessert. More reliable than sex. It’s a totally decadent combination of China black tea, vanilla, peppermint, chocolate bits and spicy red peppercorns. Plus it contains little red candy lips for a kiss of sweetness. In other words, it’s a completely satisfying spring experience with no guilt or strings attached.

aroma:

Wow. Just wow. The aroma of this tea dry is practically orgasmic and the tea that steeps from it is just as inviting, decadent, and heady. Rich, dark chocolate dominates with a hint of spice and just the right touch of peppermint.

flavour:

The flavour is a bit more complex with a strong black tea base but the semi-sweet dark chocolate is the dominant flavour. The peppermint adds a lovely freshness and crispness to the black tea backbone with the spice is subtle but a nice touch. Perfect for an after dinner treat for the holidays, this tea also makes a great morning feel-good cup.  The nicest part is even though its totally decadent and completely delicious, it isn’t overly sweet so you can drink it all day long without feeling guilty or getting sick of it.
