drank Cacao by Tisano
603 tasting notes

I was looking forward to trying this tea, and thought that it might be the most chocolate-flavored one out there! The scent from the package to the mug to the steep was pure, rich chocolate. It smelled like a fresh and sweet cup of hot chocolate! My brother even commented and said, “it smells like so much chocolate in here.” I was preparing my mouth for a pure chocolate sip (but tea-style, of course). Like others have said, I found this tea to be a bit bitter. Yes, I tasted chocolate, but I wasn’t pleased with the bitter flavor that came with it. Usually with some flavored teas, you get the flavor and then a nice dimension of tea leaf. I found this tea to be completely one-dimensional: just a single layer of chocolate+bitterness. I kept waiting to taste some black tea or something in the background, but it just left me disappointed. I know this tea is popular with some, but it’s just not for me.
