I liked this one even less than chocolate orange. It was different. Maybe too many flavours at once? Raspberry, almonds etc. I won’t be buying more. Tasted a bit artificial and I didn’t like that.

This tea was my first mate tea that I had tried and I just keep going back to it! I first bought a 25g bag, but that went too quickly… Now I buy 100g bags and even have two tins for it. I love it in the morning – I just feel more awake after having it. I can’t imagine starting my day without it!
I’ll be honest: I’ve ever been a fan of chicory. I’m trying to put that aside for this review, but…
This was included in the Chocolate Box (set of 9 chocolate teas) from David’s Tea. In the first cup I tried, I had no raspberry pieces. The only flavors I could pick up were the chicory, a bit of chocolate, and maybe a very slight hint of almond.
I made another cup, this time being sure to get a raspberry piece in the scoop. This cup certainly smelled of raspberry at least (as another reviewer said, it was just like the old Lip Smackers!) but I wouldn’t say it had a strong raspberry flavor. That said, the raspberry did seem to balance out the earthiness of the chicory, mellowing the flavor a bit. This cup was much better. The chocolate and almond seemed to come out more for me as the chicory was muted; the flavors were well balanced.
I’m glad I gave this one a second chance. All in all, it was a good cup of tea, but I wouldn’t buy a tin of it because of my feelings towards chicory. However, if you like chicory and you like chocolate, you’ll love this one!
Well, this tea, though improperly steeped thanks to a power outage, may have not been very good at 9pm last night due to it indeed giving you an energy boost… I find I quite like it just the same. It’s not my favourite tea by far but I know it’ll be a grand pick me up in the afternoon.
It does smell very much like chocolate but the taste never is overpowering of it, which is delightful. It doesn’t need any additives to be enjoyed and there’s a few recipes out there including it as an ingredient making it earn a place on my shelf. Quite outstanding.
