I would have given this tea 5 star rating, but as a tea blender myself I found that buying the loose leaf rose scented tea which is by far my favorite Harney's, and just adding a dash of dark chocolate powder myself gives the same effect. I have indeed bought this blend many times.. and it is excellent. I just notice the rose blend is slightly more aromatic. It is just a subtle preference. You can not go wrong with this tea. Since my birthday is the day before Valentine's, a loved one usually picks this blend up for me. I also recommend this blend in my book THE VINTAGE VEGAN: ART of VEGAN TEA HOSTING.
This tea was a pleasant surprise! I am always looking for new teas and I love flavored black tea, so I ordered this one to try. I really love that it tastes like your eating a piece of chocolate cake! The rose notes are a great touch too, they give it a unique flavor. I really like to drink this tea for dessert after dinner. :)
I am a huge fan of black tea and flavored black teas. This tea sounded rather intriguing and boasted of tantalizing flavors.
Valentine's Blend has turned into one of my highly favored teas. I will always grab this tin first when I'm offering tea to friends for a sniff test and it never disappoints. The rosebuds give a lovely floral note to this tea, bringing a new dimension to the black tea that is very pleasant and never overbearing. The chocolate and robust black tea round out the flavor leaving me fully, and pleasantly satisfied.
Great any time of day, I take it with milk and it's heavenly.
