Browsing the tea aisle my eyes were drawn to this new tea from Twinings - part of their Loose Leaf Pyramid range - Nutty Chocolate Flavour Assam. Well I found it too hard to resist and it found its way into my shopping basket...
A sweet chocolatey and creamy hazelnut taste, like a praline truffle.
Ingredients - Black Tea, Cocoa Nibs (20%), Hazelnut Flavouring (8%)
Now I was rather excited about the prospect of a chocolatey tea so broke open the packet as soon as I got home, followed the instructions and drank my tea black. Personally I didn't find it sweet at all, even a touch bitter. For me the flavour that stood out was the one of hazelnuts with a subtle flavour of chocolate. All that was missing was some caramel and you would have had a delicious toffifee in a tea! Now there's an idea...
Perfect as a treat in the afternoon, I think this is best drunk with a splash of milk.
Twinings Nutty Chocolate Flavour Assam Loose Leaf Pyramid (12 pyramids) costs £3.49
