Oh my. The licorice comes off a little too bluntly in this one, though it doesn’t have the smooth body that most teas with licorice have. The cacao is okay, nothing to write home about, especially considering the price of this tea brand – you would expect decadence at its best in this dessert tea. I had hoped for a little more complexity, this tea just seems flat and unexciting to me. Not a favourite, not even a contender. I’m glad I only had one tea bag in my gift set.
