Slow down and sip a cup of decadence – you deserve it. You’ve earned it. Enjoy rich notes of chocolate and earthy pu’erh tea, paired with the fresh fruity tartness of raspberry. We round out the flavor with a touch of orange and the tannins of Ceylon tea.
A cup of this tea makes a wonderful Valentine’s treat or just the perfect pick-me-up during dark winter days and nights.

Oh well, I have tried it again and although it was still pretty much raspberry; I certainly get more chocolate notes. It was reminding me though a milk chocolate bar, not a truffle at all.
It was pretty nice today, though the raspberry note was… as some previous raters said, bit on artificial side and I really didn’t liked that much.
But overall somehow better than last time. One last tea remaining in the pouch. I wonder when I will sip that down, as tomorrow Advent starts.

Wow, am I in the minority here. The dry leaf smells decadent. I feel like this had no flavor, though, probably because the base teas are very light. This tasted mostly like raspberry essence, and light malt and tannins. Not much cocoa. For something called Cocoa Truffle, I would’ve expected more chocolate and body, both from the black tea and the puerh. Then again, they used a Ceylon black and those typically underwhelm me in blends.
A weird thing about this tea, and this happens sometimes with flavored teas like this one, is that the raspberry essence aggravated my lungs, like I could feel them tightening up. It’s not an allergic reaction. The best way to describe it is the feeling of inhaling a chemical irritant, like cleaning agents.
I want to love this one because the raspberry and cocoa aromas smelled so damn good but the liquor itself just didn’t have any oomph. And, yeah, the lung thing.
Yet another tea from Shae…and this may be my favorite of the bunch so far! Chocolate-flavored tea blends can be pretty hit and miss for me, but this one is absolutely delicious. Both the chocolate and raspberry flavors are coming through clearly and the base tea has a nice earthy richness that compliments the dark chocolate perfectly without any of the funkiness you sometimes get with puerh blends. It’s even better with a splash of milk!
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Earth, Jam, Raspberry
This blend was gifted to me by Plum Deluxe who sent a large “sample” for me to try. So incredibly generous! I’m very glad to have the opportunity to try some of their blends and am starting first with this limited edition dessert tea.
I need to say, first thing, that this tea steeps up so beautifully. For those who take milk in their tea, this one is perfect for such an addition. I do, and I did, and it’s just lovely. The most prominent flavor, as I think it should be, is the raspberry with a solid base of chocolaty tea underneath. Maybe it’s the mix of pu’erh and black teas or the cocoa nibs or all of these together – whatever it is, it works. This is so well-rounded. I can smell the orange in the dry blend and though the flavor doesn’t necessarily come through in the cup I think the orange is somehow meant to boost the raspberry. It just complements the berry and cocoa in such a way that without the orange I don’t think the other flavors would have popped quite so much. This is to me such a well-thought-out and well-executed tea blend. The package says that Love is an ingredient and I believe it.
Thanks so much to Plum Deluxe for sending this and a few other teas to try. I’m looking forward to tasting the others soon.
Flavors: Chocolate, Orange, Raspberry
Additional notes: A couple of you have been saying this isn’t aging great, so I wanted to have some to both drink it while it’s good and to see how it’s aging. This pouch is still tasting great! I don’t know if it’s different batches or maybe I just like this sort of flavor combination more that others. :D But this is delicious.
Also……. THANK YOU AMERICA. I could cry and I probably will many a time, especially when it’s official official. There will be more happy tears now than there have been sad from my eyes, no matter how sad the last four years have been. It’s not about Rep/Dem… if a certain someone was still a Dem like before he switched to Rep, I wouldn’t like him the same amount. It’s all about the sort of person you are.
