Thanks for the sample, Heather! This is a dead ringer for a coffee cream truffle, both the scent of the dry leaf and the taste. It reminds me of Tea Desire’s Latte Macchiato, only that one has a rooibos base. I see on their site they now have a flavoured black called Café Latte. Wonder how it compares to this.
I added some half-and-half to my cup, because I’m bad and all, and it’s like sipping on a coffee cream truffle. Wow! Without any additives, I find that the cocoa flavour is a little bit edgier.
Not detecting any of the hazelnut but I don’t mind that at all. This is really good the way it is!
