This medicinal is fantastic oversteeped, and I can see myself drinking it over and over again. It’s a mix of a variety of different things… I get a light mint, something berry/fruity (raspberry?), something mildly creamy, a touch of anise, something very woodsy too. I would LOVE to drink this while camping!
I like my medicinals to steep longer than recommended, however this one needs just a 5-10 minute steep. Why? Because all I’m getting is hibiscus and apple out of this one, with faint notes of other, muddled herbs in the background right now. Will steep this properly tonight and see if my rating changes.
Ah, Herbal Infusion’s Vanilla Cacao is a much more accurate and authentic version of xocolatl than this. This is just… meh. I think someone bought this for me and thus I’ve got it in the house. Should probably donate it, as it’s just outside my taste bud preference.
A sipdown, only because I’m sending the last little bit off to someone whom I think will enjoy testing it out. Hopefully there’s enough left in there for a cup!
I still like Coco*Late a lot more, however this is a decent substitute when craving something decaf. The rooibos is way too present for me however to really enjoy it fully, and it’s missing a level of creaminess that I’ve come to expect with a chocolate tea.
Hung out with a friend last night who has been fighting a cold for som time now, and now I’m feeling a bit off myself. Time to crack out the elderberry! Steeped this just over 18 minutes, and it’s still delicious, although I am getting more licorice than previous incarnations.
