5 Tasting Notes
As mentioned on other Cocoa Loco teas, this smells better than it tastes. It requires a lot more steeping and doubling (at least) of the amount brewed to get any real flavour from it. If you have it with milk, use hot milk rather than cold otherwise it will be too watery.
Flavors: Chocolate, Mint, Spearmint
As mentioned in my tasting note about Cocoa Loco Orange, this smells delicious but doesn’t live up to it in flavour. Very watery when brewed in accordance with the instructions. I suggest doubling the amount of tea and brewing time and use hot milk instead of cold.
Smells divine, but you need to use waaaayyy more than is suggested and steep it for a good 10 minutes to get much flavour. I’ve been told these Cocoa Loco teas are best used blended with other teas, which I find disappointing given the price ($35 for a gift set of this, Mint and plain, each of which was only a tiny package).
To get the most flavour, I’d suggest you at least double the amount suggested (which is one teaspoon) and pack it into your infuser very tightly. Brew for 10 minutes instead of the recommended 5-7, and serve with heated milk.
Despite my criticism, it does satisfy the chocolate craving :)
