Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 07, 2014
The Tea Spot introduces today a new handcrafted gourmet black tea in time for Valentine’s Day. “Love Potion No. 9” is currently available exclusively at the company’s online tea store. This is the latest addition to The Tea Spot’s collection of dessert teas, which now totals fourteen loose leaf teas. Love Potion No. 9 is a caramel tea blended with toffee-coated coconut bits, reminiscent of a decadent sweet, but without the calories. This loose leaf tea is handcrafted at The Tea Spot in Boulder, Colorado, on a base of whole leaf black Assam tea from India.
One of The Tea Spot’s most popular original tea blends was Crème Caramel. The company’s customers have been requesting that their caramel tea make a comeback, and The Tea Spot has responded with this new gourmet rendition that builds on an old favorite. The Tea Spot’s CEO, Maria Uspenski, stated “We’re so excited to have an upscale replacement for Crème Caramel, which we discontinued for reasons related to sourcing a component of the original blend. Crème Caramel was a favorite amongst our original tea blends. Our new Valentine's tea is even more whimsical and decadent. It’s like breathing in a caramel truffle, and warming yourself in a sweet haze—and best of all—it’s guilt free!”
