So this has green tea,cacao,orange,ginger,and chocolate. This smells like ginger and chocolate with abit of orange. I steeped this up. And I can taste some orange and abit of chocolate and some green tea which tasted good but,the ginger was so strong and spicy I did not like this and could not drink a full cup.

This is a tea bag. This has dark cacao,roobios,cinnamon,licorice,chicory,cardamom,ginger,cloves,vanilla,and cherry. This mostly smells like spices. I steeped it up just a short time. This tastes like vanilla and cloves possibly. I was worried because I was afraid this was going to be spicy and I dont like spicy teas. I did not taste the chocolate sadly. And luckily i did not taste the roobios because I only like roobios when its subtle. This is pretty decent though.

This is a bagged tea that smells strongly of cinnamon and cloves with the sweet shy scent of chocolate peeping around the corner. I used two tea bags which created a rich red-brown broth tasting strongly of vanilla, cloves and cinnamon with a chocolate taste appearing toward the end of each sip. There is also a strange cool-sharp sweetness that I assume is the licorice. I do not get much of the rooibos, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned since I don’t like rooibos. It claims to be cherry vanilla but I don’t sense the cherry at all. Overall it is an ok tea for an evening sip. I will try some of their other blends to see what they’re like as well.

Update: It gets more chocolatey and less spicy as it sits. I think it needs time for the volatiles to evaporate and the chocolate to get a firmer seat.

This I’s rooibos with honey and vanilla. The honey and vanilla was just not strong enough.

This white tea I’s nice and you can taste a medium grapefruit taste.

I’m not normally into sweet teas, but this does have a nice flavor to it – reminds me of Theo chocolate in tea form. I don’t normally drink tea with milk either, but this would be nice with some.

This is a bit milder than Numi Ruby Chai. A little more relaxing, and goes better with honey.

I’ve been thinking about trying more red/rooibos tea! Thanks for rec. Had tried a rooibos chai via an Adagio sampler. Mmmmm! [Gr8, just found another use for Twitter!]

Brews up very light and delicate – I usually squish the tea bag around. Very sweet – not a pronounced chocolate flavor, but definitely there.

Delicious and very raspberry-y. Just a hint of chocolate. Soy milk is a definite plus.

I’ve had all of Kalahari’s regular Rooibos teas so I thought I’d try one of the chocolate red teas. This one is interesting – a bit on the sweet side and you definitely need to squeeze the bag!
