First steeping…definitely more spice than chocolate, as noted by others. I don’t taste the licorice, but I do taste the cinnamon and cardamon, and together I think they give off a licorice-like taste.
Second steeping…spiked it with a little bit of Chocolate Chili Chai, and served with milk.
Nothing terribly remarkable either way, but not horrible either. I don’t know if I’d buy this again on it being a chocolate tea, but for the medicinal ginger and such, perhaps. I do have a delicate stomach at times, so it might be worth stocking a little as a medicinal tea. That said, there are other teas with ginger and cinnamon and so on…so I do have some other choices as well.
