I’ll be honest: I’ve ever been a fan of chicory. I’m trying to put that aside for this review, but…

This was included in the Chocolate Box (set of 9 chocolate teas) from David’s Tea. In the first cup I tried, I had no raspberry pieces. The only flavors I could pick up were the chicory, a bit of chocolate, and maybe a very slight hint of almond.

I made another cup, this time being sure to get a raspberry piece in the scoop. This cup certainly smelled of raspberry at least (as another reviewer said, it was just like the old Lip Smackers!) but I wouldn’t say it had a strong raspberry flavor. That said, the raspberry did seem to balance out the earthiness of the chicory, mellowing the flavor a bit. This cup was much better. The chocolate and almond seemed to come out more for me as the chicory was muted; the flavors were well balanced.

I’m glad I gave this one a second chance. All in all, it was a good cup of tea, but I wouldn’t buy a tin of it because of my feelings towards chicory. However, if you like chicory and you like chocolate, you’ll love this one!

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
