First, this has been in my cupboard for a while, I never tried it, but found the smell of the leaves to be very intoxicating and thought it would be good. I did not read the description until I went to brew it. So yesterday I was critical because I said I would not put chocolate and strawberries in tea (Valentine’s). But I think that this by itself smelled all together different.
It is a light herbal tea, and if steeping in a mug (I used a clear glass so I could see what was going on) you notice that the tea is light in color but as it cools, there is red sediment that floats to the top and a dark syrupy chocolate that sinks to the bottom. Therefore this tea should be drank hot and right away, do not let it sit because you will have to mix it. The flavor was good, there is definitely the taste of strawberry and the taste of chocolate, but they do not seem forced together which is what I believe the chili brings to the party.
Overall not bad, just needs to be drank quickly. Also, it appears that all of my chocolate chips/chunks in the brewing basket are now gone, so you can probably only steep it once.
