This stuff was okay, evidently it has been sold out and discontinued from the Republic of Tea which is fine with me, I wasn’t really tempted to run out and get any (It was at the house I was staying at over the weekend). As usual I had to use two teabags to get any flavor whatsoever out of an RoT blend but I did think the chocolate/orange rooibos combination seemed promising for a dessert tea, so perhaps I will look for one from another vendor.

This is one of my favorite rooibos blends, and I’m so afraid that Republic of Tea will retire it after this year.

The scent is definitely stronger than the taste, but the taste isn’t weak to me (could be because I let it steep for 10 minutes, too). It’s more chocolatey than orange, but the aftertaste is just like one of those chocolate oranges you get around Christmastime. Love it!

Meh.

Although the aroma does have a nice hint of chocolate and oranges, it really tastes nothing like it. I’m surprised that orange doesn’t even come out much in the tea itself, even after a long steep time. Maybe I shouldn’t use the boiling water — however, every other rooibos tea I treat that way, and it tastes just fine. It’s also rather weak. Out of the flavor that is there, this is overpoweringly…hm. “earthy” is what I’m tempted to say as I’ve heard that described for rooibos before. I usually go for the sweeter rooibos brews so maybe that’s why I’m displeased with this, but it really tastes nothing like chocolate or oranges. Just smells a little like it.

note: I did find it tasted better with two teabags per cup instead of one. Still not the chocolate and oranges I had hoped for (and am usually pleased by with the Republic of Tea) but nicer.
