The steeped tea has little chocolate bits that float around the top giving it a dirty look. There is also an oily sheen on the steeped tea. You don’t smell the chili but it is certainly there when you drink it! Although the strawberry was a strong smell I missed it in the tea itself.

Resteep: much lighter brown coloring, no coco flakes or cloudiness or oils, still a chocolate covered strawberry smell. The body would now be a light body, taste is still primarily chocolate followed by chili. The chili is weaker (which is good as I am not a spice fan, MilitiaJim is) and the apple seems to come out a little.

MilitiaJim now finds it weak and sad, I think it’s fine.

As I saw I think mixing this tea into coco or chocolate syrup, or MateVana or My Morning Mate, I am skeptical about adding peppermint.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
