I really couldn’t tell this was supposed to have “chocolate” in it. This is like a spicy mild coffee to me. Almost like a chai, but not. As a herbal tea, it doesn’t really have a base. I think it would have been much better with a black tea or something with it. I might try steeping it with some black tea at some point. I haven’t actually seen red peppercorns and green cardamom seeds in a tea before, so that was fun. I like spicy chai, so this wasn’t bad. For a tea with so many ingredients, it does seem like something is missing though.
