Chocolate, strawberries and rose petals; what more could a girl ask for? My wonderful boyfriend indulged my tea habit and bought me a sample of this (and several other awesome teas) on our recent visit to David's Tea's Bleecker Street location. The flavoring of this tea wasn't overpowering but it delivered the promised chocolate covered strawberry taste. The base black tea added a nice bit of earthiness to break up the sweetness and the rose petals are a nice romantic touch. On my second steeping I was able to pick up a lot more of the dark chocolate. I would definitely recommend this tea. I'll be writing a post about this tea shop soon as well so keep your eyes peeled.
