Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts. I’ve been drawn to it for years now, but I absolutely fell in love with it during my time in Italy last summer. Ever since I’ve started trying to eat healthier, I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for a tiramisu tea that I could enjoy as a substitute. This is the first one I’ve tried, and I love it! The dry aroma is heavenly – coffee and cream. Some of that disappeared in the aroma of the freshly brewed cup, but it all came right back in the taste. The label recommends 1-2 tsp of tea per 8oz, so I went with 2; I tend to like my tea strong. I steeped for 9 minutes. Luckily, it turned out perfectly. Before tasting, I entertained the notion of adding a bit of milk – but this tea doesn’t need it! Now I have something yummy to turn to when I’m craving tiramisu and can’t have any :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Coffee, Cream
Suffice it to say it’s been a long week. Today being Friday (finally offering an opportunity to chill and de-stress), a friend and I decided to check out Tea’se Tea Shoppe after work. We only work a mile down the road, so it was quite easy to walk there. It’s an adorable shop. After sniffing nearly everything on offer, I finally settled on 2 oz of this tea, along with 4 oz of their Tiramisu.
This tea is a delight! I’m a sucker for almond in teas, and this one did not disappoint. The dry aroma gives off plenty of roasted almond, along with some apple and spice. The aroma after brewing was much the same. It tastes delicious. I added some rock sugar in for sweetness, but the almond and licorice make this tea sweet enough on its own – next time, I’ll try it without sugar. Since rooibos is its base, it’s a great dessert tea. Overall: yum!!
