      This was a big no for me but others may like it. The combo of strawberry and chocolate overwhelmed the black tea. And while I love fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate - this was just too much.

      One of my favourite dessert teas. I'll have this if I'm feeling like having dessert but want to stay on track calorie-wise. It has a great balance of sweetness from the strawberries and a chocolate flavour.

    • 

      My tea had a light strawberry scent to it. My sample was littered with pretty rose petals, but it sorely lacked in chocolate ingredients and fruit. With no actual chocolate product or strawberries to carry the flavor my tea was rather bland, not even sugar could amp up the strawberry. So in the end I had a vaguely flavored, malty black tea. Not the worst, but not what I was looking for. I chucked in some of my own cocoa nibs for the second steep, but that only helped a bit.

      Steeped 2x, 200F 3m, and 3.5m

      Chocolate + berries is always a winning combination for me. It's more like a strawberry jelly candy than a fresh chocolate strawberry though, considering how overly sweet the strawberry flavoring is. The rose petals might as well not even be there beyond a little bit of rosy scent.

      I don't particularly like chocolate flavor in my tea, but I won't take away stars for personal preference. I think a bit of cream and sugar makes this quite enjoyable. It's sweet and smooth. My cup was pretty bitter, but I take responsibility for that, I got distracted and didn't pull the tea when I should have.

    • 

      Even brewed at a lower temperature, the Ceylon tea gets bitter. Nice chocolate aroma and taste though. Strawberry tastes artificial to me. Just not my cup I guess.

    • 

      I steeped this tea at a lower temperature than recommended of 195 degrees for 3 minutes, and really enjoyed it. While the majority of the flavor was black tea and rose, I still got some of the tartness of the strawberry and a bit of that chocolate flavor. Definitely a bit astringent, but I expect that from the flavored black teas I have.

      A delicious tea with lovely notes of chocolate without overpowering the tea!

      Smells like dark choclate. Is flavored without completely masking the black tea flavor. Would recommend trying out.

    • 

      This blend has the opportunity to be 5-star, but needs to up the strawberry and chocolate flavors. I get mostly tea flavor with an undercurrent of something vaguely fruity. The desired flavor would not be recognizable without the description.

    • 

      The true flavor of the tea came out when I added some cream and sugar. Now I taste chocolate covered strawberries. That’s amore! ❤️

      This tea sounds really wonderful when you look at the ingredients - who couldn't love chocolate dipped strawberries? I have discovered unfortunately that rose petals in my tea are NOT my thing. They give the tea a really gross taste to me. Thankfully they are reasonably mild in this tea, but I can still taste them. I also can't really taste the strawberry flavor. I guess it's a very mellow flavor, easily overpowered by the chocolate. I am certainly enjoying my bag, but I'm not sure I will buy this again. I will probably just blend my own chocolate and strawberry teas together so I don't have to deal with the rose petals.

    • 

      It was a weak cup of tea as far as other flavors other than the black tea. But the tea was smooth and I would be willing to try again.

    • 

      I really like this. I always mix some chocolate strawberry at home, but the rose just adds a lovely extra pop to the taste.

      I LOVE this tea. It has a nice flavor with a hint of chocolate and rose. It does not make a nice iced tea though.

    • 

      Just a perfect combination of all great ingredients that I love

    • 

      This is my favorite black tea. It never disappoints. The chocolate and strawberry with a slight hint of rose is heaven. I can’t say enough about it!

    • 

      Nice even taste, the floral isn't too overwhelming as I have found in other blends. Sweet, but not overbearing. Great with a bit of cream and honey.

    • 

      This tea is definitely sweet! I like it occasionally but it's not a go-to.

    • 

      Even if you're not a big fan of dessert teas, this is a great tea that keeps the sweetness in check with bright acidity from the berries. Very beautifully balanced.

    • 

      I got this as a free sample. I was not expecting much of it, but its actually really good. Not too sweet

    • 

      I love this romantic tea. Not too floral. I like adding cream tea to it too.

    • 

      Great full bodied, flavorful tea! The flavor is reminicent of chocolate, strawberries, and roses - and is aptly named. I still can't figure out if I like this one or the Libra tea better (they are very similar).

    • 

      I love this tea. I would give it a full five stars if it had just a bit more strawberry and chocolate flavor in it. It's fabulous. And it is perfect to drink when eating chocolate! 😍

    • 

      This tea was surprisingly delicate in aroma and flavor, but made for a romantic cup of tea to share with a loved one. Tastes lightly of chocolate strawberries.

    • 

      Maybe a bit on the bitter side, but you can still taste the chocolate and strawberry flavors. Maybe the strawberry could be a little stronger, but as a black tea it's pretty good. Just don't brew it for too long!

      I really like the Rose in this tea. Depending on your scoop it can get a bit tart, but if you balance out the bits and pieces there isn’t any problem.

    • 

      I love this tea, the black tea flavor is just enough to cut the chocolate strawberry sweetness.

    • 

      I love this tea! it is definitely one of my favorite black teas I have tried fro Adagio. It smells SO good in the bag and still has great flavor once brewed!

    • 

      I love this tea! I drank it daily when I first got it (I couldn’t stop!) and still alternate it into my regular rotation. It is not too sweet, with just enough chocolate to mix well and not lose the berry flavor. Perfect!!

    • 

      Wow! Where to begin? Valentines is the closest tea I've ever tasted to actual chocolate. The flavor brings to mind a sugar-free, dark chocolate-dipped strawberry with just a hint of rose petals. February is, of course, an ideal month to enjoy it (and it's so good I'm tempted to limit it to JUST that month as a special treat). However, it also makes an excellent morning and afternoon tea year-round, due to its high caffeine concentration. Perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth! I enjoy it with brown sugar.

      Always a favorite around my house. Nice warm, has a chocholatey taste and hints of strawberries. All the young kids adore it and I include it in a "getting started with loose teas" package.

    • 

      Was a little too sweet smelling for my tastes. I found the smells too over powering to really enjoy this tea.
