So the name of this tea of course got me, I had to try it! This is my first time having a bit of green rooibos, plus I don’t drink very much green tea because I just haven’t gotten into it yet. The smell was not what I was expecting at all it was sort of fruity but almost in the over-ripened stage. There was also a hint of cinnamon but I did not smell chocolate at all!
The liquor was a pale almost golden orange color really pretty and the brewed leaves were really interesting because it had the rooibos leaves and then the green tea leaves and it was really pretty.
The smell of the tea was still the same if not a bit stronger… I was not sure if I could actually drink it… the smell was very off putting to me. But because the name had chocolate in it I had to at least try it. The first sip was very sweet, much sweeter than i thought it would be. There was a fruity/vegetal taste and then there was the sweetness of cinnamon. But where is the chocolate?
After letting it cool, it is still very sweet with some fruitiness… i can’t really place the smell or the taste. There is some creaminess which I think is the chocolate as well a bit of the sweetness is from the chocolate but there is not much of a chocolate taste that I can tell… I have read that this tea varies quite a bit so maybe this pouch was more fruity than chocolaty. I don’t think that I will buy more of this though it just wasn’t quite what I wanted.
