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.

Ai, this blend … I love it, but it has been erratic, and it is not heavy on the chocolate. With a really long, long steep — like 10 minutes or more — some gentle chocolate comes through, but there’s no super cocoa punch to it. The “Super,” I think, must refer to the antioxidant hit.

David’s Tea are busy reformulating this blend. The new one shoudl be out in mid-April.

Thanks so much for the response! I may have to try a super long steep and see how it goes!

I have been wanting to drink tea for about a year now. I love the idea of tea but I go through times when I don’t drink any…. I know that it is good for me but sometimes I just don’t make it. I think that finding a place like this will help me remember to drink happiness! I have really only tried Teavanna teas and have a whole cupboard full of them. I recently just bought a few teas from other companies and are waiting impatiently for them! :)

I tend to like fruity teas or spicy, sweet teas. I like them to have lots and lots of flavor. I am looking the ultimate chocolate tea and the ultimate coconut tea. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This forum looks like such a friendly and warm place, I can’t wait to learn more and more about tea as well as enjoy all of the different kinds.
