In my sample pouch, I didn’t see any chocolate chips at all. I realize that the chocolate chips don’t really add all that much flavor to the overall cup, but I am just mentioning this because the tisane that I measured into my smart brewer didn’t look at all like the photo… it looked like plain rooibos.

The flavor is very delicate here. Rum is the most prominent flavor, and fortunately, it does mask some of the woodsy flavor of the rooibos. I was a little worried about that because when I first strained the tea into my mug I could smell that very distinct rooibos smell and I worried that this would taste strongly of rooibos, but it does not.

The chocolate is softer than I’d like it to be, but I think it’s very well balanced with the rum flavor… neither is really overwhelming the other. I do get a nice chocolatey taste in the finish.

Eh…. It’s pretty good.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
