I was unsure what I would think of this tea when I purchased it, but I had been craving a dessert tea and the DavidsTea employee who was helping us raved about this one and proclaimed it his favourite. The combination of cinnamon, coconut, chocolate and vanilla sounded too good to pass up!
Unfortunately, this tea did not live up to the employee’s review. The flavour is okay, though it doesn’t taste as rich as I had hoped. My main issue, however, is actually not the taste but the texture of this tea – more specifically, the disgusting oily layer that formed every time I brewed this. I tried to ignore it, but every time I drank it I felt as if it was coating the inside of my mouth and throat.
My impression in the end was that it tasted less like a delicious chocolate flavoured tea, and more like what would happen if you just threw an entire chocolate bar and a cinnamon stick into a cup of hot water. Not impressed, and I will be avoiding any teas with chocolate chunks in them in the future, no matter how delicious they may smell :(
