This wonderfully wholesome tea is well presented, named, described and besides all of that, it tastes good too. First off, the adorable elongated pyramid tea bags have a thread coated wire, instead of a string, and there's a little paper leaf on the top, just to add that too cute touch. This wire can be bent over the lip of the cup to ensure that it doesn't fall into your tea, but in a cup, the bag is so tall that you can just drop it in and grab the leaf when you are ready to pull the baggie out of the cup. Design points for sure; its so darn cute.

The bottom of the individual cardboard packaging that each bag arrives in says that this is a Belgium chocolate, the website says Swiss, and the world map says that both cannot be completely true. However, there's no real bother because a foreign chocolate is very yummy and present, and I am leaning more towards the inclination of Swiss. The chocolate is most likely given its sweetness by the addition of coconut, and together the first sip and all surrounding aromas are magnificently creamy with chocolate. The hazelnut is also a well balanced player and makes you feel as if you were biting into a chocolate bar with hazelnut crunch just below the silky surface.

While this tea has all of these nearly impossible to capture flavours and aromas, the sweetness doesn't go overboard, but rather is balanced with refinery. Well done.

For a wide selection of Gourmet Organic Teas be sure to visit Tea Forte.
