I was looking for something like an almond joy. This is pretty close. The aroma is chocolatey almond with hints of coconut. The flavour is a little more like chocolate covered almonds. Good dessert tea.

This was my bonus sample.

It smells so good! Like spicy Autumn chocolate. The flavour is a delicious blend of pumpkin pie and chocolate. Well… mostly pumpkin pie with chocolate shavings. Which makes me want pie.

This tea smells kinda cakey. I like honeybush, but the chocolate flavour of this one doesn’t really work for me.

This smells nicely like dark chocolate. I hadn’t had much luck with chocolate teas, but I like the flavour of this one a lot. And I liked the hints of citrus. (Though I did have it with oranges… which only made it better).

I agree about chocolate ‘flavored’ tea. Finally I bought some cocoa hulls and just add them myself.

This tea smells so good. I like the minty chocolate. The flavour is really good, creamy chocolate mint.

I’ve had other chocolate mint teas, but the vanilla is a great addition.

Am I supposed to have this while camping? This tea smells a bit like hazelnut chai, and marshmallows. The flavour is pretty sweet, and I need to try this with one of my chocolate teas.

It’s good with the Red Velvet Cake.

Yes, I like to drink black tea in the evening. This is a dessert tea, right? The aroma is really nice, very sweet and chocolately. I should really have red velvet cake with these teas. It’s important for flavour research. Anyway, I do taste cake in this tea. Otherwise, it has a good chocolate flavour.

This tea smells really good. It seems a little less flavourful than the chiffon teas. There a bit of a sweet, creamy citrus taste.

This does remind me of fruit punch. The flavours are mostly berry and orange. It’s delightfully fruity.

This smells great… like spicy coconut marzipan. The flavour is like almond with spices. There’s hints of coconut and apple, but mostly almond.

Wish I’d had this when it was still winter, this would good on a cold evening.
