This tea is my favourite tea hands down! The dry tea is quite sweet smelling and smells like chocolate and hazelnuts. It kind of reminds me of the smell of coffee, probably because chocolate scent is in the same vein and hazelnut is a coffee flavour staple. You see familiar rooibos sprinkled with hazelnuts and some chocolate chips.
Steeped the sweet scent isn’t quite as strong and it has the red liquor that rooibos is known for. When steeped it smells less like coffee, not so much of an acidy note, but still like chocolate and hazelnut. As a plus I haven’t noticed an oily sheen to the tea that many teas with chocolate tend to have when steeped.
It tastes wonderful! Rooibos and this chocolate hazelnut are a winning combo. It is mellow and comforting and leaves a delicious sweet chocolate hazelnut aftertaste on your tongue.
This perfect for fall and winter cozy tea can give you a nice, rich dessert fix without all the sugar.
I could drink this tea all day and I do!

I added this tea and accidentally entered the wrong ingredients and haven’t been able to change the original info. The ingredients are rooibos, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves, and natural flavour.
This tea was suggested to me by the woman serving me. I wanted something decaffinated and spicy to drink on these crips fall days. It was between this and I chai but I went with this.
This tea is perfect for this time of year and winter too. The spices are nicely blended together. Beautiful orange flavour and I’m glad I got this. I will be getting more when I run out.
