Tea Review: Cocoa Cardamom Seduction

Cocoa Cardamom Seduction. With a name like that, how could you not try this tea? So, when my husband carefully unwrapped his birthday gift from our friend’s Janelle and Brandon and revealed this tasty tea, I knew that I would have to sneak in a sip, or gulp, or mug full of this tea. Luckily, he shares. I was a bit skeptical about pulling off a good chocolate taste in tea. Especially since we don’t usually add in any sweetners or milk. But, to my delight, this tea packs in chocolate-y, spiced goodness without the need to add anything at all. The creator of Talbott Teas is an expert in making teas that are all about the experience (and name’s the teas accordingly). Cocoa Cardamom Seduction is a sweet, cinnamon spice tea that will entice you back for more.

Tea: Cocoa Cardamom Seduction

Type: Black – flavored

Taste: Cocoa bits infused with cardamom spice and hints of cinnamon

Amount: 1 tsp for every 6-8 oz. water.

Steep time: 3 – 4.5 minutes

Directions: Boil water until approx. 203 degrees. In a tea infuser or tea pot with an infuser, add the desired amount of loose tea (see amounts above). Pour boiling water over the tea and steep for 3-4.5 minutes. The taste should have strong hints of cinnamon and fruit, but should not taste too bitter. For more flavor – add sugar or honey and for a creamy touch add in some milk.

The Fresh Fridge Tip: Usually I don’t say this, but to make this tea taste more sweet, steep it a little longer.

    I would probably just confiscate that box if I were you. And keep it all to myself. That sounds like one delicious tea.

  2. It sounds fantastic. Maybe it could simply “disappear” and reappear at your office or something!
