I had gotten this tea as a birthday gift from my sister. I was really excited because anything red velvet is my top favorite.

I had to expierement with steeping time to get the full flavor. The first time I tried this tea, I steeped it for the recommended 2 to 5 minutes on the tin. The flavor was there, but not fully. The next few times I had it I steeped it for 6 to 10 minutes. I got a mild flavor when I did this. Which was great so it wasn’t over-powering.

I also tried two different ways of steeping the tea bag in the water when I was experimenting with the steeping time. I tried adding the bag after I had the hot water in my mug the first time. That might have been why I didn’t get the full flavor. After that, I would put the tea bag in the mug BEFORE I put the hot water in it. The flavor improved when I did this and played with the steeping time.

Overall, I did like this type of tea. It was very nice, not overpowering, and I swear I did smell fresh baked red velvet cake when I took a whiff of the tea. I say it’s perfect for desserts and small get-togethers. My only complaint is that it’s $10.00 a tin (if you go to Fisher’s in North Canton, OH) if you want to re-stock on this tea.

Mmmm… this is good!

Nice chocolate flavour, interesting other taste-hints (bit of tang or tart), and the rooibos is nicely in the background. I would buy this one. Thanks, Starfevre!

Steeped for 8 minutes, added sugar and milk.

I had first gotten a small tin of this tea, containing two bags as a gift on Valentines day. Lets say, I drank those two bags right away, and I had to get more. This is defiantly in my top 5 of my favourite teas. I recommend it to any tea enthusiast.

The greater part of the chocolate effect is in the aroma. I like to breathe in the chocolate and follow with a sip for the rooibos and vanilla. Yum yum yum yum yum!

I had very high expectations with this tea, but I’m not really happy with the taste. The chocolate flavor feels very artificial for me.

I drink it with milk and sugar to make it more tasty.

I was able to taste this wonderful tea thanks to a friend who carried it from US to Italy. We cannot find such a tasty tea in our country (as far as I know).

My thoughts upon it? It’s great, tasty and delicious. Perfect for any time of the day, from breakfast to after dinner. If you have it with red velvet cupcakes you’ll have the perfect mix of sweetness!

A little fruitier than I was expecting; it doesn’t REALLY taste like Red Velvet cake, but it works fine as a dessert tea on its own. I added a little sweetener, sea salt, and hot chocolate mix to (hopefully) bring out the chocolatey taste elements; they do make it sweeter, at least.
