D is for…Darling Blend Herbal Tea
I was sad that I haven’t really done an Easter tea though as a Jewish person and a student coming into exams, Easter doesn’t really feel like anything in our house today.
I guess this could be my Easter-ish tea since it is a chocolate blend of sorts. That said, it really is more Valentine’s Day if anything since it is chocolate and rose and called “Darling” blend. Flavorwise, it is Valentine’s as well since you definitely get equal parts rose and chocolate. Chocolate up front with a floral rose aftertaste that sort of gives way to the slightest lingering pepper from the honeybush base. One of my favorite blends was a rose blend (Des Roses et Des Bonbons by Camellia Sinensis which is discontinued now) but it had a sweet rose flavor and this is not that – this is more like someone was adding rose perfume to this since its more floral and perfume-y than it is sweet. I will finish the cup but I don’t really need more of this.
