I had high hopes for this tea and it wasn’t that they weren’t fulfilled… it’s just that it’s much different than I expected. I think this tea has a nice, complex flavor to it… I only wish I could taste the chocolate a bit more. When I think I’m getting some chocolate, it’s more like a drowned flavor mixed with bark. The woodsy taste is part of its character, but I think it could do with a little more sweetness. The tea also leaves a bit of a drying effect in my mouth and is almost acidic on the way down. Again, it’s not bad.. but I don’t think I’ll buy this again.

I prefered My Mate by Teavana better than this one…but neither taste very chocolate-y to me. More like a roasted flavor?

Exactly! Roasted is a perfect word to describe this tea.
