I loved this! I kept putting off tasting this sample because I was anticipating enjoying it and I wanted to have ample time to savor it. Well, this evening was the time and although I didn’t get to relax in the bath with a cup of tea, I enjoyed every drop of The Persimmon Tree’s chocolate banana rooibos tea.
The chocolate really came through in this tea. The apple bits, banana dhips and pink peppercorn didn’t stand out on their own, but they blended together nicely in support of the chocolate.
This is definitely a dessert tea. (It tasted better than hot cocoa.) For me the key was to let it cool to above room temperature and then down decent size sips. Otherwise, I don’t think I would have loved it as much as I did.

This is my cat, Morgan, and a teapot my brother gave me for Christmas in 1995. I put yogurt on the tea pot to try to get my cat to lick it for the picture, but she was more interested in seeing what was on my fingers.
My brother had his friend make the teapot for me while he was at college. It has sustained many moves and two children without injury. It is very dear to me and I love it.
I am over a year into my most “serious” tea journey to date and loving my discoveries.
(Update: We had to put Morgan down at the beginning of February. She was a lovely cat. We recently adopted two male Tuxedo cats and we are trying to adjust to each other.)
