“You’ll swear you’re drinking a cup of hot cocoa, even though there’s no chocolate in the blend”

Lies!

(Don’t get me wrong. It’s still a very good cup, but I can tell the difference between this and cocoa.)

Nxtdoor

Haha. Is it just the mouthfeel or the actual flavour.

jessiwrites

It totally tastes like caramel to me.

Fjellrev

It didn’t remind me of hot cocoa either.

Cavocorax

I’m not sure what was supposed to be cocoa-ish. Presumably the flavour? I get some notes that are chocolatley, but nowhere near an actual cocoa drink! It’s tasty but not a replacement.

Fjellrev

I think i read before that the coconut-chamomile combination is supposed to create a chocolate-like note. But chamomile is always chamomile to me! Can’t fool them taste buds.

Cavocorax

Sneaky! I didn’t know that!

Kittenna

Haha, this certainly didn’t fool me into thinking that it tasted like cocoa… but it did taste to me like a fairly decadent beverage, and I was quite impressed. I couldn’t ever taste the chamomile in it (I was apprehensive to pick it up initially because I thought I hated chamomile, but the girls at DT assured me I wouldn’t know it was in there… so true.)

Men I really didn’t care for this tea..but my bff claims it grows on you and she drinks it regularly.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
