Let’s start with the smell. It smells so chocolate-y and spicy and fruity. I was really looking forward to drinking this. Then while it was brewing, it smelled like hot chocolate with fruity spicy flavors. I let this steep for a good long while since I wanted maximum flavor. I knew I’d be adding milk and sugar.
At first sip, I was greeted by the slight burn from the spice. Then, a nice full chocolate flavor with a sour fruity finish. I was startled by the sourness. It seemed out of place with chocolate. Then I added my evaporated milk and honey and I got sort of used to the sour. It, however, remained a minor background buzzing that I couldn’t quite ignore. Hmm…I’d say this would be pretty near perfect if not for the fruity sourness. I’d consider getting more, but I’ll have to explore my options some more. :) I need to find that perfect chocolate spice herbal tea!
Thanks for sending this teataku!
