I’d consider this average.
I can barely taste any spiciness and the chocolate is barely there. I used 3tsp (normal ones not any specialty “perfect” tsp) to 16 fl.oz from a sample I got from Ellyn. Thank you for this bonus! The dry stuff smells intoxicating that I only wished carried over to the steeped tea.
It kinda tastes watery. Eating a chocolate cookie that a coworker brought in though brought up the yummy factor. I would suspect it was the sugar in the cookie that brought out the other flavors in the tea.
AFter letting it sit awhile (while I was away working) I now can taste the hit of spiciness from the peppers…and it’s been a few hours since my last sip. If I ever purchase this in the future I’ll have to play aruond with the ratio of tea to water…because man this is weak!
