I was in Teavana today, and I decided to order a cup to go because I’ve been contemplating adding this tea to my collection, and what do you know…it was DELICIOUS and I’m surely going back for more.
The only concern I have is, since Teavana made it, I feel like they did their ~magic and it’s going to end up not as good as they made it when I take it home. I’m hoping that isn’t the case, because I loved it!
This tastes great; the chocolate is there but it isn’t too overwhelming, but it’s present enough that it will satisfy your sweet tooth after dinner. I noticed the coconut although I didn’t notice the rose. I’ve never tried oolong tea but I thought it was divine, and apparently it can help aid in digestion, which is nice. The chocolate flavoring didn’t overwhelm the tea and it almost tasted like a lighter version of hot chocolate (but yummy!).
I asked for medium sweetening, and I believe they sweetened it with German rock sugar which really brought out the flavors. I’m not sure if it would taste as good without any flavoring, but I do think a little milk would make it creamier and it MIGHT make for a good latte. But I never make lattes, so what do I know? Lol.
Anyway, I’m going to go pick this up next time I’m around the mall and hope that it doesn’t let me down at home!
