Product Description:

Don’t we all love a piece of chocolate cake now and again? This creation is a must for all chocolate fans with its lively, sweet, chocolaty cake aroma and the beautiful decoration of rosebuds.

Ingredients: Honeybush, chocolate chips, caramel cream pieces, flavoring, rosebuds

Tasters Review:

Pardon me if I get giddy every time I try a tea or tisane with chocolate/chips in it!  YUM!

Once I opened the bag of this I could smell Caramel and Chocolate…more Caramel than Chocolate but the aroma was terrifically-awesome!

Once infused I could smell the chocolate more and the caramel a little less.

This is very sweet and I can taste both the caramel and the chocolate. This is a medium-flavored honeybush and very pleasing and very much a comfort tisane!

This is very tasty and a great offering from Fusion Tea Room!

Green Mulberry Leaf Tisane from Tula Teas

Tea Type: Herbal

Where To Buy: Tula Teas

Product Description:

Mulberry “tea” is drunk throughout Asia for health and wellness and it’s the personal favourite “comfort tisane” of Tula’s founder. Its flavour is often compared to green tea, so it is a popular alternative to green tea for those who are lowering their caffeine intake and those who love green tea, but want something that doesn’t taste bitter when overbrewed.

Our award-winning Green Mulberry tisane is made from the most aromatic strain of mulberry plant (Morus Alba). It is organically grown and processed by a small, woman-owned company in Northeastern Thailand, where the climate and soil are ideal for mulberry leaf production. The result is an antioxidant-rich, great tasting, caffeine-free infusion.

The deep golden infusion has a savory aroma with hints of hand-rolled green tea, steamed lacinato kale, toasted pumpkin seeds and brewed raspberry leaf. The flavour is boldly nutty (a bit like a fine Long Jing) with vegetal undertones and delicate berry sweetness. The aftertaste is a completely different experience from the taste: the flavour is still nutty, but it’s far, far sweeter. It has notes of mulberries (of course), but also blackberries, raspberries, slippery elm bark and crushed rose petals. This wonderfully layered infusion is a supertaster’s dream come true.

Green Mulberry pairs with a range of Southern foods. Try it with Southern cuisine like fried chicken, spicy beans and rice or buttermilk biscuits, or pair it with barbecued tempeh, jam-topped vanilla ice cream or fresh-baked berry pies.

Green Mulberry is deliciously nuanced when hot, but it’s also intensely nutty when iced. Try it brewed strong with milk and sugar and chilled for a fantastic iced latte replacement.

Tasters Review:

Green Mulberry Leaf Tisane from Tula Teas absolutely SHOCKED me!   The aroma is AMAZING!  It’s unlike anything tisane/tea-wise I have EVER smelled!   The only thing I can compare it to it buttered and Cooked Kale!   It’s so bready and Kale-like!

The taste is quite nice, too!   I was expecting it to be your average herbal taste but it tastes like toast and cooked kale with a toasted green tea finish and the aftertaste is nutty with a hint of fruit.

It’s Remarkable!  I really like this!  Other than minty herbals…this may just be my favorite herbal to date!

Plucking Season: Verveine is typically Harvested towards the beginning of Summer, when in full bloom, and again in Autumn, just before the cold weather sets in.

Introduction: Also known as Lemon Verbena and Verveine Odorante, Verveine is a fragrant herb indigenous to South America, namely Argentina, Chile and Peru.

Flavor Profile: Soft, rich lemony aroma and smooth taste. Refreshing and soothing.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Verveine leaves

Tasters Review:

If you are looking for a nice soothing herbal tea that has lemon notes without the pucker try French Verveine from The Tao of Tea.

This is a very lovely herbally-lemon…a very smooth and gentle lemon. Everything is mellow about this tisane…but isn’t that the point!?

I know this is redundant but…it’s very nice and very relaxing!

I think this would be interesting to cook with too!  Perhaps with rice!  YUM!  I just might have to try that!

Tasters Review:

I’m always interested in Mint Chocolate Chip Flavored stuff!  I have to admit…I just think chocolate and mint are genius together…generally speaking!

BUT…when it comes to this flavored rooibos…it doesn’t let me down!  It’s intensely flavored and smells AWESOMELY AWESOME! I know that is redundant and not the most creative phrasing for an official tea/tisane review but it DOES fit the bill…trust me!

I can see all of the ingredients and something that looks like dried apple but I don’t see that in the list of ingredients so maybe what I am seeing is a vanilla bean or something.

The taste is a nice, bold, strong Chocolate and Mint Mix.  It does hide quite a bit of the Rooibos taste but paired with the vanilla makes for a milky-smooth ending and aftertaste.

This is very good!  I like this a lot!  And I mean A LOT!

As it cools the chocolate becomes more malty…almost like a chocolate milk shake type malty…this aspect of the taste interests me as I don’t recall having that happen to me in other tea/tisanes.

This without a doubt made it to my mid 90 percentile of favorites!
