2 Tasting Notes

I got a few free samples of this at a local coffee shop and was super stoked. I’d been interested in buying one of the RoT cuppa chocolate teas (particularly the banana and coconut ones) but was always hesitant to buy a full tin due to the mixed reviews they’ve received on here. I figured this would be the perfect test to see whether or not it’d be worth actually buying some!
The tea definitely smells like strawberry cocoa. An artificial strawberry cocoa, yes – but I didn’t mind! It smelled yummy, in my opinion. I prepared it according to the instructions and then took my first sip…meh. I wasn’t all that impressed. It was a very, very mild flavor and not really enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. I added a dash of milk and some Stevia which helped bring out more of the chocolate. Not half bad!
Overall, I thought the tea was pretty yummy but I was still a bit disappointed. I enjoyed it and will probably drink another one of my free sample bags tonight, but I wouldn’t go back and buy this flavor in particular! Maybe I’d have better luck with the other teas in the cuppa chocolate line?

I bought this tea because I am a pumpkin FANATIC. I wish it wasn’t such a seasonal flavor so that I could enjoy it all year round!
I’d been looking for a pumpkin spice tea, so when I saw this on the shelf, I pounced! It turned out to be very disappointing though. I found the tea to be rather bland – almost like I’m just drinking hot water? I added some Stevia and it STILL was pretty blah. I’m new to the whole tea world, so perhaps I’m not enough of an experienced tea drinker to appreciate it? Nevertheless, I wouldn’t buy it again!
