If any of you are Oprah Fans then you may have seen Talbott Teas featured on today’s Oprah Show. It was a Very Special SURPRISE Day Two of Oprah’s Favorite Things and our friends over at Talbott Teas were featured smack-dab in the middle of the show!
Here at SororiTEA Sisters we have posted many Talbott Tea Reviews and we have more on tap this week to celebrate their teas being featured on Oprah!
Today I would like to share one of my favorites from Talbott Teas called Cocoa Cardamom Seduction!
The name of this drives me wild! Mission Accomplished, I suppose!
I can clearly see ALL of the described ingredients! I can’t stop sniffing this! It’s AWESOME…It’s like a Chocolate Peanut Butter type smell. I have been smelling it over and over again.
The first sip I really did notice the cardamom but I think that was the idea of the whole thing, right!? I mean, hence – the name!? Anyhow…I continued to sip and certainly picked up on both the Almond and the Cocoa. The cinnamon and cardamom pair together as they should and the pairing jumps up in front of the line but the Chocolate/Almond taste isn’t too far behind. The color of the tea liquid is a light-medium brown.
I’ve had this tea several times and each cup is a tad different. I have tried picking out more almonds some times and less cardamom other times just to taste the difference. Each cup is a wonderful adventure, regardless!
If you are a new reader of our blog you may or may not know that I drink all of my teas plain with no additives. If you are the type of person who enjoys sweetener or cream in their tea I will have you know that a good online friend of mine who also happens to be a tea freak says that by adding cream and sugar to this it is much more dessert-like and is a “very rich, cocoa-flavored tea with a taste of cardamom and a light hint of cinnamon.”
So which ever way you enjoy your tea – make sure you make room for Cocoa Cardamom Seduction from Talbott Teas…as seen on Oprah’s Favorite Things earlier today!
Congrats to Talbott Teas for making it to Oprah’s Favorite Things! And two thumbs up to Oprah for highlighting TEA on her show!
