We think chocolate and tea were meant to be together! Treat yourself or someone special to a collection of teas that pair perfectly with chocolate. Packed in a natural bamboo box, our Chocolate Lover's Tea Collection includes a handmade bamboo scoop and a half-ounce sample of each of the following teas:
Fukamushi Sencha - Known as "deep-steamed" tea, this second flush sencha brews a deep lime-green cup with a bold, rich flavor. The leaves are steamed longer than standard sencha, resulting in a more intense flavor and less bitterness.
Organic Wuyi Da Hong Pao - Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) is one of the famous Rock Teas of Fujian, China. Grown among the mineral-rich cliffs of the Wuyi Mountain wilderness area, the tea is renowned for its sweet-tart dried fruit flavors and distinct mineral undertones. A medium-oxidized oolong, Da Hong Pao is smooth and full-bodied with a sweetness that lingers in the throat.
Assam Golden Tips - This is a top-grade Assam black tea that contains many golden tips. It has the perfect balance of body and complexity. Containing only the most aromatic young leaves, this elegant malty cup has a wonderful red wine-like aroma and leaves a desirable, lingering aftertaste.
Each sample packet brews about 5 - 7 cups of tea.
