Wow… this one was a pleasant surprise last night. I was not in the mood for rooibos, but this is the tea I picked out of the basket, and I figured I should really try it, since Cavocorax was so nice to give me some! So I brewed it up, and to my surprise, it actually tasted like chocolate orange! (Keep in mind that within the last two weeks, I have consumed 2 delicious Terry’s Chocolate Oranges. Mmmhhhhh.) Unpleasant rooibos flavour was absent/minimal, and it was big on flavour. There was some oiliness on top, but I’m pretty sure it was from little melty chocolate pieces. It wasn’t scum, like you get in teas with little candy bits.
Anyhow, I have too much rooibos to want any more of this around, but I’d highly recommend it as a caffeine-free chocolate orange option for anyone who’s looking for that sort of thing.
(Cavo, I know you recommended 10-20 minutes, but I sometimes find that that brings out unpleasantness in rooibos, so I went with 4 minutes, and it was perfect for me.)
