So I just brewed myself a cup of this for the first time and my whole room smells like chocolate now. Its weird though cause it’s not the same as when someone is making chocolate or baking, its like that artificial chocolate scent you find in cosmetics and what-not. So I’m hoping the tea doesn’t taste like this.
I’ve tried chocolate teas from DavidsTea before (read my lips and love tea #7) and I wasn’t that crazy about them. I decided then I just wasn’t a fan of chocolate teas. However, this tea came with my winter collection package, and I’ve finally taken the jump to try it out.
For taste, the tea is really a let down. All I can taste is the chocolate, and its very artificial tasting. I actually prefer read my lips or love tea #7 because I could taste mint or strawberry in those ones, but in this tea all it is is the chocolate. The spiciness of the peppers comes out as a slight sensation in the throat or on the tongue, but no where in flavour.
I’ll most likely be giving this tea away.
