Another unique dessert blend (chocolate! berries!), though not perfect.

While using a teaspoon in previous steeps, I didn’t love the weakness of the Ceylon black tea, so I used two teaspoons this time around. It resulted in a deep and delicious cup, but I don’t think it needed two teaspoons (1 1/2 or 1 3/4 would be enough). The description mentions an amazing mix of berries: raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, elderberries, cranberry (apple too) and I do see pieces of berries, but just not enough of them. To create a black forest cake blend, there is also vanilla and cocoa shells. I would say the cocoa shells take over more than anything else but I love that B&B uses cocoa shells, with hints of berry but also with tanginess from the bits of hibiscus included in the blend (I wish they weren’t there but it doesn’t ruin the blend more than it could have.) Mostly, this blend is like chocolate and hibiscus no matter how I steep it. I would love more of a cakey flavor and berries from this though, so I’m not rating it very high.
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug// 10 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 6 minute steep

This tea lived up to

This tea lived up to the description and the reviews. I thought it might be a little sweet for me when I ordered it, which it is, but still glad I tried it!

Fruity but smooth, refreshing yet indulgent

I love this tea. It feels luxurious from the cocoa element yet it has a vibrant quality from the fruitiness. One of the best chocolate teas I've tried. A bit hit with me!
