I was never thrilled by the idea of chocolate flavored tea, and actually when it arrive with a couple of other teas in a Harney & Sons order, I couldn’t remember what made me order it. This was quite pleasant, though. I thought about adding milk and sugar, but it truly doesn’t need anything of the sort, and I enjoyed it plain.

I am usually disappointed by fruit teas—some will smell so wonderful, then taste like kool-aid (unsweetened), but I was lured by the packaging, the pomegranate, the discount…Turns out to be a decent tea, pretty mild, with a little fruit, not too much, nothing fake about it. It’s a bagged tea, a good choice to keep in my office for days when I don’t have time to fill the big travel mug at home, or when I need a little something to make it through the afternoon.

Didn’t pay attention to the steep time (although I’m sure it was more than the recommended 3 minutes!) and used the electric kettle at work when I made this, so maybe I’ll keep track next time and re-visit this review.

I have a sample of this that I’ve tried a couple of times and after all the stuff I’ve heard about flavored oolongs being taboo I’m surprised to say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. I actually thought that they nailed the pomegranate flavor, which was probably the most surprising bit. I’ll have to try it again soon and give it a log. [I also don’t remember how long I steeped mine, though it was likely 3 minutes.]

A new tea for this Friday morning. Very aromatic, smells almost fruity but the taste is more mellow, bergamot softened with vanilla? Nice.

Do you think this is stronger on the Earl Grey side? Or are the other flavors more pronounced? The package is stunning, but I’d like to know what’s inside is worth paying for too! Thanks. ;)

The bergamot’s definitely there, but I think the vanilla holds its own very well, both in taste and aroma.

I grew up with this tea. My mom would use it for sun tea in the summer and of course as a kid I loved the sweetness of the cinnamon oil. I still like it hot occasionally, but iced is best—no sweetener needed.

It’s probably overkill, but I often drink this with milk and sugar—dessert in a mug.

It’s great mixed w/ their chocolate chai, w/ or w/o milk, no sweetener.

I was surprised by the strength of the bergamot at first, used to much milder Earls, but it quickly became a morning standard. It’s strong but smooth—I imagine almost a vanilla sort of “feel”, if that makes any sense. I usually drink it black, although I’ve tried it on occasion with milk and honey.

Definitely a good strong black tea to get me going in the morning (straight black in a giant travel mug) and a nice one for lazy afternoons (with honey and lemon).

I bought this mainly for iced tea, but my overall tea stash is dangerously low so I’ve been taking it hot. Really nice for a fruity tea—not fake or cloying.
