American Tea Room Confections

10/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"Tea bark: The source of the toothsome aroma was a luscious dark semisweet chocolate bark enhanced with American Tea Room Tangier Black Tea and bits of dried apricot. Intensely rich, a little went a long way. That’s the great thing about quality chocolate; you don’t need very much to satisfy. This one was a definite thumbs up."
