Dang! I really wanted to like this more than I do. I hang in limbo right now DavidsTea enters month two (!) of reformulating my beloved Super Chocolate, a green rooibos base with chocolate bits, ciunnamon and a sprinkling of green tea. They suggested I try Spicy Chocolate Rooibos while waiting.

I drink a lot of rooibos throughout the day, as much for my health as for the taste. Colds don’t last nearly as long anymore.

But Spicy Chocolate Rooibos has a red rooibos base. I’ve really come to prefer green rooibos. At least this red rooibos base isn’t minty, but it is woody. Meh. Woody red rooibos with a slick overlay of banana. I saw but did not taste the chocolate bits and peppercorns.

I’ll drink it, but not necause I enjoy it. A real disappointment.

Oh no! I too am upset Super Chocolate isn’t available. My closest store doesn’t have any though I haven’t checked others. I was hoping Spicy Chocolate would be a good substitute but wasn’t too enthused when I smelled it so I passed for the time being. Here’s hoping for Super Chocolate’s reappearance ASAP!

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
