Basically, this is the latest in Teavana’s streak of “Well, it’s okay, but it really could have been better”. Very caramely and chocolatey, but suffers from the same problem as Dokudami Umami did, where there’s something really lacking and watery about it. Also, there’s no sea salt in this. Teavana is not good at naming its teas after what they taste like.
I like the spiciness of the peppercorn and the sweet savoriness of the cocoa and caramel. I just wanted more from this, and it didn’t deliver.
