For quite some time I have been hearing people rave about the Red Velvet Latte from Teaopia (mostly on Twitter). I had thought it was a loose leaf tea flavour, so had to wait until a while ago when I had some extra time downtown, not too far from the Teaopia shop in the Eaton Centre (or The Core…as I think it is now known…)
I had expected that Red Velvet tea would be made from a chocolate-flavoured tea – but instead it is actually made with their Amazing Vanilla tea, steamed milk, raspberry syrup and vanilla syrup. Although it is wonderfully tasty – I did not really taste it as Red Velvet, but rather as a sweet, vanilla-raspberry latte.
So, I wont be one of the raving fans on Twitter, but it definitely will join the list of things to have when I am also picking up some loose leaf next time! Right now on Twitter though, they are raving about the S’mores tea… Which is currently sold out – but it is coming back…
Love S`Mores? We love them so much that we made it into a tea! A delectable combination of Black Tea, Oolong Tea, Pai Mu Tan White Tea, Mini Marshmallows, Cocoa Peel, Chocolate Drops, Hazelnut Brittle, Pomegranate Flower Blossoms and Marigold Flower Petals.
Have you tried the Red Velvet Latte yet? What did you think?
