Well I read Amanda’s tasting note earlier and I had this tea waiting for me to try it as well. I was going to wait a day or two as not to be persuaded by Amanda’s note but since I could not sleep at all last night and I really have little decaf selection I decided to go for it.
I agree with Amanda on one thing for sure and that is the smell. I do not care for the smell in bag or brewed. It does smell a little chocolatey though. I would love to add some sweetened condensed milk to this but have just got comfy on the sofa – laptop in lap – on top of me.
Never mind that – I had to get up for an unrelated reason so grabbed the condensed milk on the way back.
Well – its a little better now. No huge difference but better. I think it does bring out the white chocolate a lot more.
I appreciate that the flavors are not chemical though. I respect that the flavors do not drown out the flavor of the rooibos too.
I don’t care for the way it seems to dry out my throat in the back. Some teas do this to me for some reason.
To be fair, I am not a huge fan of chocolate flavored things other than chocolate itself.
The aftertaste I am getting is vanilla rather than chocolate – its a little medicinal.
This is not one I will be buying again but I will drink the rest of it when I need to stay away from caffeine.

I’m going to get chocolate syrup to see if that helps it out, but condensed milk I may have to try too.

Let me know how that works out – I am afraid all you would have is watered down chocolate after that. I don’t think that tea is strong enough or complex enough to support it. I may very well be wrong though. Curious to hear back on it!

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
