I don’t think that this tea would take milk or cream well but a…

    David’s Tea Love Tea #7

    Country of Origin: China Leaf Appearance: Ingredients: black tea, dark chocolate, freeze-dried strawberry, red rose petals, natural and artificial flavouring Steep time: 6 minutes Water Temperature: 200 degrees Preparation Method: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker Liquor: Chocolate, strawberries and rose petals; what more could a girl ask for?
