This is a bagged tea that smells strongly of cinnamon and cloves with the sweet shy scent of chocolate peeping around the corner. I used two tea bags which created a rich red-brown broth tasting strongly of vanilla, cloves and cinnamon with a chocolate taste appearing toward the end of each sip. There is also a strange cool-sharp sweetness that I assume is the licorice. I do not get much of the rooibos, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned since I don’t like rooibos. It claims to be cherry vanilla but I don’t sense the cherry at all. Overall it is an ok tea for an evening sip. I will try some of their other blends to see what they’re like as well.
Update: It gets more chocolatey and less spicy as it sits. I think it needs time for the volatiles to evaporate and the chocolate to get a firmer seat.
This is a tea bag. This has dark cacao,roobios,cinnamon,licorice,chicory,cardamom,ginger,cloves,vanilla,and cherry. This mostly smells like spices. I steeped it up just a short time. This tastes like vanilla and cloves possibly. I was worried because I was afraid this was going to be spicy and I dont like spicy teas. I did not taste the chocolate sadly. And luckily i did not taste the roobios because I only like roobios when its subtle. This is pretty decent though.
So, I had high hopes for this tea versus the Hazelnut ChocoLatte by the same company, and that miiight have skewed my rating? While this tea is good (especially for bag tea), I feel like it isnt as harmonious as the Hazelnut. The cherry kinda gets lost and it’s not overall as rich. That said, it smells divine and it IS a satisfying cuppa..just not my favorite :)
