I’m surprised by the bad reviews on this. I love chocolate, and I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a chocolate tea. The only other one I’ve tried is Adagio’s Valentine’s, which is good, but has that nasty Ceylon base that Adagio uses. This is not bitter like that at all. It has a very rich, smooth, creamy chocolate taste, and is very authentically chocolate despite the lack of milk. The smell of the dry leaves is amazing! The chocolate taste does lean a bit darker than a milk chocolate, so maybe that’s part of the hate on this one. Hm.
