Hmm. Yes, it’s better than the plain Chocolate and probably the Chocolate Mint as well, but I’m not getting a strong chocolate flavor here. It smells divine and very promising in the tin, but the taste isn’t holding up the bargain for me.
The steeped tea does have an undercurrent of chocolate in the aroma. Mostly the spice flavor I get from this one is clove and cinnamon, perhaps a bit stronger on the clove.
The flavor doesn’t deliver much chocolate. It delivers a fair amount of spice, but it’s not a hot spiciness so much as a baked goods spiciness but without the sweetness I’d want from a pastry.
Now that I’m done sipping, there is a little spicy kick at the end.
I’m surprised, but I much prefer the Upton Melange de Chamonix as a representative of this genre.
Thankfully I’ve now tried all the Kusmi chocolate teas, so I can move on to something they (hopefully) do better.
