I found a single box of this on clearance at the grocery store the other day and decided to chance it because it sounded fun and was half-price.
I’m rather liking it. It isn’t something I’d want all the time, though. I’m usually a bit leery of chocolate beverages that aren’t hot chocolate, because they usually just taste like watery fake chocolate. This tea seems to be a step up from that. I like that when I sip it, the cocoa bursts out first, and then as the sip lingers, the chili jumps into the picture later, and then fades to a light tingle for a few seconds.
It kind of reminds me of a mocha chai, but without all the heavy spices. I’m not a big fan of spiced teas, because a little spice goes such a long way, and most of the time chai is just spice overload to me, especially with the cardamom. This is better, because there is less spice. You get the little kick, but it isn’t cloying.
