I didn’t really believe that this was going to be a chocolate-flavoured tea. My brain just said that it wasn’t possible. So I guess I’m not super disappointed that there was only the slightest hint of chocolate in my tea. The main thing I noticed was the bitterness of the green tea. What is with me and green tea??? I just cannot get the timing right to avoid messing everything up! I did get the cinnamon notes which was really nice.

I’m going to have to try this again before I give it a rating. And maybe drink it sometime other than right after dinner when I would much rather have real chocolate LOL

Try steeping it at a lower temperature. I absolutely hated this tea when I first got it because of the bitterness and overwhelming cinnamon flavor. I made it last night at about 180 degrees and steeped for 3 minutes. Much, much better.

Thanks for the advice! I’ll have to give it another try :-)
