This is another tea that I purchased from Tea-Sipper’s stash sale.
The dryleaf has an assortment of stuff in it including a ton of cocoa shells.
It brews up a lovely reddish pink color due to the beetroot. Upon first taste It reminds me almost exactly of Spice & Tea Exchange’s Black Chocolate tea. So I compared ingredients and while this tea has many the Black Chocolate tea only has black tea and chocolate flavoring. They both use Sri Lanka Black Tea as the base though and of course are chocolate teas.
I can see a lot of people really liking this.
This tastes just like chocolate cake without the frosting. I always am disappointed when teas are named Red Velvet but lack the cream cheese aspect. Even a bit of raspberry flavor would be nice to give you some aspect of the red velvet part since some recipes have raspberry included. The best part of red velvet to me is the frosting. So until I find a red velvet tea with the cream cheese aspect I don’t need to buy more for my cupboard.
