It smells rather good, but to be honest the chocolate flavour falls completely flat. It ends up tasting more like paper or…stale? Like very stale chocolate? Kinda feels like I’m drinking a cardboard box. :( I’m getting a slight hint of sweet and nutty from a fake hazelnut flavour, but there’s very little depth to the tea overall. Mostly I just taste stale paper. Nope.
Tea of the evening…..
This one is not so bad for bagged tea. It will never be among my favorites, but I like it for what it is….decaf dessert black tea that is missing that metally taste that decaf teas sometimes have….
24 oz pot, 3 bags, freshly boiled water, 3 minutes. Lightly sweetened.
Meh. I can’t stand mild teas that come in tea bags unless they are those larger, triangular kinds. For some reason, I can taste the starch or glue or paper material. YUCK! The hint of chocolate and very very minimal hazelnut was all I could detect with the starch. I added sugar, which helped a tiny bit. I drank this one fast… really fast. Needless to say, I am not going to be purchasing this tea in the future. I am thankful for the sample though.
Chocolate! I want chocolate! I have come home with a hankering and a craving.
I’ve largely given up on Chocolate teas, but I have this, from my sisters 12 days of christmas present to me.
Ehhhh. Its a bit watery, even though I went to the upper end of the steep perameters (I did it for 5 minutes), and while there is a faint coco flavor, I cant say I’m getting any of the hazelnut.
As it cools I get the teensiest bit of hazelnut, but unfortunatly it seems bitter.
Well, it was nice to try, but I cant really get behind this.
The chocolate and hazelnut flavors are sweet, but don’t taste as natural or complex as Harney & Sons Florence (my only other choc/hazelnut reference). Then again this is a decaf tea, which sometimes makes a tea bit “flat.” It’s also a bagged tea, so a comparison to Florence is unfair on many levels, I know.
Tastes a bit bitter even though I used the midpoint for brewing time. I took a couple sips and immediately added a splash of half and half to try to smooth it out.
Overall, it’s ok but not great. Probably forgettable, but I was craving this flavor combo and decaf is the way to go this late. I probably shouldn’t even be drinking chocolate!
