Wow, I just have to say this is SO much better then Republic of Tea’s Red Velvet Chocolate tea. I actually really like it. When I smelled it, I thought it would be similar to DT’s Birthday Cake, which I didn’t care for. That is, it has the same maple aroma. I was a little worried, but it really does taste incredible! The black tea is smooth and robust, and I could definitely taste the red velvet notes of cocoa, and white chocolate in the background. HOWEVER, when I added soy milk and Truvia, it was absolutely cakey, and it brought the red velvet to the forefront and became even more delicious. I wish I had ordered a tin of this, and I will absolutely be repurchasing.
